The Shed

a colourful hideaway cabin in Cliftonwood, Bristol

We love the shed and we have tried to make sure that it has has everything you could need for a happy stay in the vibrant city of Bristol.   The little kitchen has a two ring electric hob, a good sized fridge, a sink with cold running water and all the pots and pans, plates etc you could need to make simple shed feasts. There's a toaster and kettle, an old pine country kitchen table and the shelves are stocked with organic teas and coffee. We also provide a locally sourced organic breakfast hamper for £10 per person per day.   

There are books and games to enjoy during your stay as well as a wifi connection, a blue tooth speaker, a Roberts radio and an old guitar. The bed has wonderful french linen sheets, a feather duvet and colourful bedspreads and once you get in, you won't want to leave!  The shed is fully insulated and there is a retro heater and hot water bottles to keep you toasty in colder months. In the utility in the main house approximately 5 metres away through the garden, you have your own entrance with access to a slow cooker and microwave as well as hot running water, a washing machine and your own private wet-room and loo with a unique floor made of penny coins! The shed has outdoor slippers and a big colourful dressing gown to make your trip to the bathroom a warm one and we provide hamam towels. Also just ask if you would like to borrow an iron or hair dryer.

Shed and breakfast is trying to walk carbon-lightly on the earth so we have solar pv panels and solar thermal for our electricity and hot water and there is a recycling and compost bin in the shed. Also the produce we use in the hamper is mostly locally produced and organic and comes in biodegradable packaging where possible.

Outside you'll find a sunny south facing garden that you share with the family including Wilf the dog and little Indy, there’s a BBQ you can use and a little gate that leads out onto the quiet colourful street and the vibrant city close by. The shed does feel nice and tucked away from the rest of the house once you are inside but it is close to the kitchen doors and you may well see us as you come and go. We hope you will feel really at home here and you are always welcome to knock on the door if you need anything at all.  We really look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the shed!
