Bury Hill Farm, Winterbourne, Bristol is set within 8 acres of private grounds with a long driveway off a country lane, part of a small holding farm. Just 15 minutes to Bristol and 20-25 minutes to Bath. The farmhouse is surrounded by fields and is completely separate from the farmyard. With views of the garden and surrounding fields. It has a south facing, private, fenced garden. Fully furnished, all large bedrooms with plenty of space (not over crowded with too many beds to make up numbers. Room sizes are detailed below). The farmhouse is perfect for large families or groups of friends wanting to stay away together. Unfortunately we can not accept all male groups. Easy access to the historic cities of Bristol and Bath. Avon cycle way minutes away. Ample parking for 6 vehicles. 3 pubs within walking distance, 2 of which do excellent food. A deposit of £250 is required to book, we can't hold bookings without the deposit. The availability calander is updated daily. We can only accept a maximum of 12 guests. Hen parties welcome, sorry no stags. Hot tubs can be arranged by yourself, I have details of local providers. We allow a maximum of 2 pets, very strict rules apply and need to be in crate (provided) overnight a contract needs to be signed. £35 per pet, plus a damage deposit. Any responsible pet owner will not have a problem signing this.

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.

A fantastic weekend stay!
Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic weekend stay at Bury Hill Farm! We were there for a hen weekend and the house seemed almost designed for that purpose. It's so pretty and the bedroom set up was ideal for our large group. All of the hens were overwhelmed by the house and commented on what a good find it was. It was spotlessly clean and had every amenity you could think of. For anything you couldn't find, the friendly owner was on hand. Clare was there when we arrived to talk us through anything we needed to know and show us how to operate things. She couldn't have been more helpful for our stay. She took delivery of a hot tub for us before our arrival and was round within a couple of minutes to lend us a Bluetooth speaker we'd forgotten to bring. It was great knowing Clare was there if we needed anything yet it still felt completely private.
The farm is ideally situated for exploring Bristol with it only being a 15 minute car journey. Clare has preferential rates with local taxi firms which came in handy.
I would happily go there on a family holiday with my young children as they would love the farm and the enclosed garden is ideal. Equally, I would highly recommend for a large group of friends or family.
Really hope I get the opportunity to visit again!
Thank you for your lovely review.
A friendly family holiday on a farm
A quiet location in the countryside yet only 20 minutes from Bristol city centre.
Eight people stayed, although that was stretching the facilities - six would have been ideal.
A typical farmhouse with good facilities including the patio and garden.
The owner lives next door and any issues were promptly dealt with.
Great property with everything you need!
Fantastic stay, with everything you could need!! Our stay was well accommodated and it was a great break. Easily sleeps 12. Thank you for sharing your home!
Incredible Farmhouse perfectly places between Bristol and Bath
We stayed at Clare's amazing house for a friend's Hen Weekend. The house had everything that we needed including a dishwasher and washing machine. We were able to get groceries delivered to the house which was hugely helpful. Clare was very informative and sweet which made the stay even more enjoyable. I wouldn't hesitate to book again. Highly recommend.
Amazing stay, perfect for hen dos/birthdays and group celebrations.
Absolutely brilliant stay at this cosy cottagey type house - Clare the owner even left logs in burner so we were able to have a fire when it snowed unexpectedly in March!!
Only reason for four stars instead of five is in case you are after somewhere closer to Bristol and/or in need of ‘mod cons’ and brand new condition.
Absolutely perfect, thankyou xx
Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. I feel the need to reply to the comments made. The Holiday home is on a farm and this should be clearly obvious in the details and name "Bury Hill Farm" most farms are on the outskirts of the city, like us. The journey into Bristol takes 15 minutes (traffic allowing) and is also in the property details. With regards to “mod cons” we have everything you would expect whilst staying in a holiday home and probably more. After contacting you for specific details (as I was a little confused as to what this meant) you were disappointed that the Holiday home didn’t have a sound system. We don’t provide sound systems anymore, simply because we have had them damaged in the past, it doesn’t say in the details that this is provided and most people have portable speakers now which they take with them when they go away, but to make it clear for future guests I will make sure it is my information pack. You also commented that some people may expect 5* hotel facilities and possibly rainfall showers etc. I don’t advertise that I am anything close to a 5* hotel, details of everything in the property are described in the property description and details. Lastly as far as the brand-new condition. We decorate/repaint 3 times during the year, sometimes more, to keep the walls fresh, unfortunately we do find especially on the stairs, the walls regularly gets scuffed with suit cases being taken up and down. My prices reflect a lovely, comfortable, well equipped holiday home. I do my absolute best to provide everything possible for an enjoyable, comfortable break.
My family all met at Bury Hill Farm, 12 in total. The accommodation was very spacious and caterered to all our needs. Everything was there that you could want. The location was easy to find for all as we were arriving from different locations in England. The house is in a beautiful setting. We had some fresh eggs for breakfast which the owner let my young son collect, which he loved doing. We enjoyed evenings sat around the log burner and enjoyed family meals sat around the huge kitchen table. We all loved staying there and are looking forward to returning soon.
