Farmhouse in Winterbourne, Nr. Bristol and Bath, England - Rural Private Location - Perfect for visting Bristol, Bath and the Cotswolds
I've always lived in Bristol, I'm married with 3 lovely grown up children. I have a lot of local knowledge which I share with my guests. We've eaten a all of the local restaurants and visit all the pubs. I can tell you the best places to go.
Clare purchased this Farmhouse in 1994
Why Clare chose Bristol
The location of the house allow easy access to so many places in Bristol, Bath and beyond and is very centrally based for guests coming together from different parts of the country.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The Ground floor in particular is excellent for social gatherings, surrounded by a beautiful south facing garden and large patio. You can enjoy the patio in the sun all day.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
A brilliant property for a large group!
We loved Bury Hill Farm! I booked it as a birthday treat for 6 couples, and it was perfect.
The donkeys welcomed us as we drove up the long driveway, and the property was clean and well-maintained. A lovely open plan kitchen diner made meal times really sociable, and the wood burning stove kept us snug in the evenings.
The garden was gorgeous, and the owner Clare was brilliant. The slight downside was the noise of the motorway - but you couldn't hear that at all from indoors.
As keen runners, we found plenty of amazing countryside to explore.
We'd definitely come again!
Hi, thank you for your lovely review, we really appreciate it and glad you all enjoyed yourselves. I know the motorway can be heard when it's blowing a gale outside and wet, on calmer days it's absolutely perfect. It's a shame you didn't get to be able to enjoy the garden, but I'm glad you were cosy in the house. Hope you visit us again in the future.
We have just returned from a weekend stay at the farm to celebrate a 21st birthday. We were a large family group which the house was perfect for. The house is very spacious, clean and equipped with everything you would need for a weekend away. The children loved visiting the animals and collecting eggs for breakfast. We will definitely be returning for another stay at the farm!
Excellent house perfectly designed and equipped for groupa
Excellent stay and loved by all guests
Hi Lydia. Thank you for your comments, we really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. Clare
Very comfortable property, lots of space for friends and family to socialise and relax in. Well equipped kitchen and all of the basic white goods available and in full working order. The garden is totally enclosed and would be suitable for all ages to enjoy and there is ample parking. The property is in a superb location for Bristol and is very convenient for visiting Bath as well. We loved it!!
Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. Clare
The property was really lovely, warm and clean.
The property is found at the end of a very pot-holed drive which could be quite dangerous if arriving in the dark!
Everything was as we expected - the owner was really helpful, fetching some whiskey tumblers from her property for our use.
I would happily recommend this property to anyone, especially large family groups.
The only downside was that as it was an old property, the stairs were very creaky as were the upstairs floors so trying not to make a noise to wake up anyone was not particularly easy! We managed!!!!!
Thank you taking the time to make a review, your comments are appreciated. We are having the spindles on the stairs replaced the first week in December, so I will get the creakiness looked at and fixed. It’s not something I’ve really thought about previously. The floors upstairs will be re-carpeted in January and any noisy floor boards with also get fixed. The drive is continually maintained, but the weather has been against us, it is something we do try to keep on top of. Glad you found everything else lovely and warm and clean.
Excellent stay at a beautiful property
A group of 9 girl friends met up for a weekend. The farmhouse was ideal for our purposes, with a kitchen very well stocked with appliances/crockery/ kitchen tools, opening into a large dining area with a big farmhouse table for meals. A utility room had a large larder fridge and an undercounter freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
The layout downstairs was ideal for our purposes, with the lounge leading on from the large kitchen/dining area, with 3 comfy 3 seater sofas and an armchair. We did have a very minor issue with the TV, but this was very quickly sorted for us. Good wifi for all of us too!
Farmhouse was spotlessly clean, with 6 comfy bedrooms, the bathroom facilities were slightly on the ”tight” side, with an en-suite, family bathroom and downstairs toilet, but we coped as we are good friends. It might not suit some families, but only a minor detail for us.
The owner Clare was very helpful and responsive to messages, we had fresh milk delivered to us, all in all we had a wonderful stay.
We had organised a minibus to take us into Bristol (via a recommendation from Clare), and this was excellent for us all, especially as we could use the bus lane to avoid the city centre traffic. Return minibus for 9 was £120, excellent value, speedy and prompt.
We were lucky enough to visit during Oktoberfest, which made our holiday break.
The house is very pretty, lots of fairy lights and attention to detail. Clare couldn’t have been more helpful, Organising logs at short notice and bringing matches to light the logburner which we had forgotten. We organised a food delivery with Asda, which suited our needs well. The bonus of the farm environment, friendly animals and excellent local walks was a bonus.
Several people did comment on the slight noise from the local motorway/main road, but that was from people used to very remote countryside. Myself, living near an airport, thought it almost silent!
We wouldn’t hesitate to return, or recommend.
