  • Description


    Hi, we are a family of 3, me and 2 young girls (and a cat), 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 1 single mattress and a camp bed type thing 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

    We'd welcome you to spend some time with our family, if you would like to visit Bristol, improve your English, just meet new people. It's a lovely sociable area, lots of nice pubs/cafes, and Bristol has lots going on.

  • Help


    Just now I need help with some plumbing, it's just changing taps, possible replacing the cut off valve thingy, replacing the toilet cistern and a pipe that wasn't fitted properly. There are lots of other odd jobs, but this must come first I'm afraid.
    Other jobs are tidying and cleaning! I very much welcome 2 or more travellers as long as you're happy to share a room

  • What else ...

    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.
