  • Description


    Hi, we are a family of 3, me and 2 girls (and 2 cats), and we often have a housemates too -1 adult and 2 part time small children.

    We live in a 2 bedroom house in a lovely area not far from the centre of Bristol. I have an allotment not far away. We are quite chaotic and rather messy, and the girls are lively but lovely people! I don't need anyone to look after the kids as they are with their Dad 3 nights a week, so I like to be with them when they are with me- But they would enjoy meeting you and showing you around!

    I love to meet new people, but I sometimes am away at work, so would welcome 2 friends or a couple, if you would rather not be alone.

    I can offer a small double sofa bed and a camping mattress in a private room, all basic facilities are here.

    I speak a little bit of French and tiny bit of Spanish, and always pleased to hear all languages! Contact me if you would like further details.

    Thanks, Polly

  • Help


    Just now I need help with selling on the internet (eBay, gumtree etc). Lots of organising, lots of tidying and cleaning. There are various DIY jobs, if anyone can do some simple plumbing and repairs to floors etc! Cooking and shopping for food (quite low budget I'm afraid) welcome if you enjoy that. Gardening if you have experience, and there is a wall and fence to build in the garden! I very much welcome 2 or more travellers as long as you're happy to share a room.

    What else ...

    There's loads to do in Bristol, art, music, theatre, and a unique culture. I live near a train station to get to other areas of town, and busses just down the road. The local area is great, lovely people and good pubs.
