We live in a pretty english village, but very close to Bristol (only 2.5 miles to Bristol City Centre) so we are lucky to have lovely countryside as well as being close to everything. Bristol is a beautiful city with lots to see, and close to Bath and London for day trips.
We have a regular bus route to Bristol as well as a cycle track at the back of our house, for those who don't have a car.
About 10-15 minutes drive from Bristol Airport, Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station and Bristol Bus station.
Our house has 5 bedrooms, two of which are available for homestay, although not always at the same time.
The first is a spacious and airy modern room downstairs that has a small double bed, and also a pull out bed, so whilst ideally suited for a single person or couple, it could be suitable for 2 friends/ small family for a short stay if you are happy to share. This room has plenty of storage and a desk.
The second is a small room upstairs that I used variously as a study/ homestay guest room. It has a single loft bed with a comfortable mattress, and another comfortable pull down bed which otherwise acts as an armchair. There is a desk and storage, and is ideal for someone on a budget, but who require a clean and comfortable room. I would accept 2 people in this room by request, but only for very short stays. Because we have daughters, we only accept females in the upstairs room.
We are a friendly couple with 2 daughters (aged 15 and 11) and enjoy having visitors. We have a cute and friendly Border Terrier dog called Wilfie.
We do not provide breakfast, or meals, except by arrangement in advance. Guests have access to the kitchen, both bathrooms, the utility/ laundry and a lovely big garden.
We have had friends, family, lodgers and home-stay staying from Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Fiji, Czech Republic, India, China and Spain, and welcome you to experience family life in the UK. We have not been able to accommodate families yet, but will when we are less busy with work etc.
Liz is Scottish, and Adam is English, and both we and our children will help you improve your english.
We are pretty chilled out, with few rules. We are often around to chat and share a glass of wine, but are also a busy household so happy for you to come and go as you please. We don't really have a curfew time, as long as you are quiet coming into the house after 11pm. We try to be quiet in the morning, but with 4 of use and a dog trying to get out of the door by 8.30am, we can't promise silence.
Weekends are generally busy and sociable.
Any questions, get in touch.

About the Area

We live just 3 miles from Bristol City Centre, but in a pretty village called Long Ashton with good transport links to Bristol an other areas. We are 5 miles from Bristol Airport and 4 miles to Bristol Temple Meads Train station. The bus stop is only a few minutes from our house, and the cycle track is next to our house.
Long Ashton is a safe quiet and very pretty village. It has shops, a post office, hairdressers, pharmacy, doctors, dentist and most importantly, 3 village pubs!
There are beautiful walks in the village, and walk-able to Ashton Court Estate, venue of the annual International Balloon Fiesta in August. Then, the whole village and fields nearby becomes a holiday village during the festival. In addition to this festival in August, there are a number of other festivals in the summer, including the Bristol Harbourside Festival at the end of July.

Central Bristol, with it historic docks, its thriving cultural life, its fantastic shopping and its family friendly pastimes is 2 miles away and has something for everyone. The Roman city of Bath is 15 miles away, easily accessible by car, bus or train.

    We had amazing time with Adam, Liz, Beth, Esther and Wilfy.
    İt was one of our best time, that we will never forget! The house and also the rooms are very comfortable and the village (Long Ashton) is also very close to the City Centre.
    We had a small fridge, which is very comfortable for short and long time stay. We also used the kitchen as we wanted.
    Liz and Adam are really open minded and you can enjoy the short talks with them during cooking, drinking coffee or tea. :)
    Most important: You're really welcoming by them, no matter where you come from!
    We felt us like home, and we can only highly recommend this nicest Family!

    Thank you for everything!

    I hope, we will see you again..

    Adam and the family are very nice. In the beginning I though Adam is a very serious person so I didn’t talk to much to him. But actually he’s open-minded and very funny! Liz is super nice as well. She even took me out the last night to a cool pub to listen to concert and bought me drinks.

    I totally recommend this homestay!
    And thanks for everything:)

    J’ai loué une chambre pendant deux mois chez Adam et Liz. Leur maison est agréable. C’est une famille adorable, avec qui j’ai partagé de superbes moments. Ils sont très vigilants et ils ont fait en sorte que je me sente comme chez moi pendant ces 2 mois. Merci encore à eux pour leur accueil chaleureux.

    Liz and Adam were awesome!! They both are extremely supportive and experienced in receiving foreigners at their place. This make things easier and enjoyable when you are planning to study/live abroad.
    The house is really comfortable, clean, with a lovely kitchen and garden. The neighborhood is great, calm and close to one of the best parks in town.
    Thank you Adam and Liz for make us feel like home!
    Highly recommended!!

    Me and my girlfriend stayed almost a month and it were absolutely perfect.
    Liz, Adam, Beth and Esther were so nice and kind with us, it felt really like home.
    They are amazing and you never feel like a guest, but part of the family!
    We enjoyed so much stay with them, and miss them so much!
    Everything was perfect, and the location is very good, lots of green and peace in the area.
    No word can describe how perfect was this homestay, and I recommend this family's homestay to everyone.
    It was a delightful experience.
    Hope to see you soon.
