We, my husband Lance, myself Angela and our adult daughter Sophia use this lovely apartment as a second home as we live in the countryside but thoroughly enjoy all that the city and harbourside has to offer as well. Lance works as an IT Consultant and Angela is a retired Social Worker. We are also part owners in our local village pub which the community rescued from closure or development -although Angela does not drink! Angela enjoys playing the flute, being a Parish Councillor and a member of the local chapel. Lance enjoys playing tennis, watching sport and listening to music - as well as being a frequent attender at Glastonbury festival. We are in our mid fifties. We were recently made grandparents to two gorgeous baby boys. We have three children, boy/girl twins of 23yrs and a son of almost 28yrs. Angela is Bristol born and bred but Lance is originally from Oxford. We met when we were 19yrs old in London and at University.
Angela and Lance purchased this apartment in 2013
When Angela saw the plans for this development she was determined that we would buy this apartment. It's position on the harbourside is almost unique, especially for a 1 bedroomed apartment and it also had a rare parking space. The apartment feels more like a little house as it has its own front door, back door, a rear courtyard area as well as a balcony. The living area is also unusually spacious for a new build 1 bedroomed apartment. Further, there are only ten dwellings in this building and so we have a close knit Residents Association.
We love the activities on and around the harbourside. The lovely views of the water and boats and the numerous opportunities for excursions and eating out. It is also only a short stroll to reach the public open space of Brandon Hill, the shops and university of Clifton and the many historic buildings Bristol has to offer. The city is home to Banksy and there are many art, music and cultural exhibitions and events throughout the year.
The flat is situated directly on the Harbour- giving great views and easy access to all the sites of Bristol. The hosts made everything ray and comfortable with great communication and detailed instructions. We'd recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay in central Bristol!
We have visited Bristol on a regular basis for the last few years.We love our visits.We had a brilliant time in No5.I think the best thing we can say is we will be contacting you for our next visit next year.Thank you very much for our lovely relaxing holiday.
The property was a nice spacious modern apartment in a lively area, very well located for views of the docks and for access to all amenities in the town center with excellent secure parking.
The Boathouse is situated on the docks, opposite ss Great Britain. It is ideally placed for touring Bristol as it is within walking distance of all the major places of interest. We stayed in February and it was cosy and warm and lovely to come back to after a day in the cold. Although small, the flat feels spacious and is very comfortable and well furnished. Everything you need is supplied and to make it even more special there is a lovely view of the water from the picture window and a cute little balcony. There are lots of places to eat within s few minutes' walk - one restaurant is practically underneath the flat! We were left a welcome bottle of wine and box of After Eights, which was a very nice touch. We plan to return for a week in the summer next year.
We had an amazing stay at the apartment. Surrounded by the beautiful harbour, within minutes walk to the city centre and all the attractions. The apartment itself was warm and comfy, plenty of room. The hosts Angela was accomadating and made us feel more than welcome. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great place to stay! 5 stars all round!
