Our snug shed and breakfast is tucked away in our little garden in colourful Cliftonwood sandwiched between Clifton Village and the vibrant Harbourside. It has an inviting super king sized bed, its own little kitchen with 2 hobs and access through the garden to a private shower room in the house. There is a little sunny garden that you share with the family and we can provide a delicious mostly organic locally sourced breakfast hamper for £10 per person per day, just let us know when you book.
When we renovated our home in Cliftonwood, we lived in the yellow shed for two years and we loved it! We'll describe it as best we can here but on our dedicated shed and breakfast website you'll find more information about the shed so do check it out. You'll also find a lovely write up on the Bristol Post website with the title Top 11 Air bnbs in Bristol... and you'll find us on the special places to stay website where they have written a lovely write up. And if you are super keen you can find us featured fleetingly on BBC One's The One Show! in July 2017!
The shed is compact but we hope you will feel that it has everything you need for a happy stay. The little kitchen has a two ring electric hob, a good sized fridge with a freezer compartment, 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 teas and coffee. We can also provide a mainly organic locally sourced breakfast hamper for £10 per person per day. There are books and games to enjoy during your stay as well as wifi connection, a blue tooth speaker and a roberts radio. The Super King sized bed has an electric blanket with dual controls, wonderful french linen sheets, a feather duvet and colourful bedspreads and once you get in you won't want to leave! There are a couple of storage baskets for clothes and a little hanging space The shed is fully insulated and there is a retro heater and an electric blanket to keep you toasty as well as blankets and hot water bottles. In the utility in the main house approximately 5 metres away through the garden (take care on the steps at night), 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!
Outside you'll find a sunny south facing garden that you share with the family but with your own bench and table, a barbecue you can use and a little gate that leads out onto the quiet colourful street and the vibrant city close by.

The shed itself is for your use only and it lies in the corner of our small garden which you are free to share with us, our baby son Indy and with Wilf our friendly labrador who will happily show you round. Your private wetroom and loo lie in the main house next to our kitchen but you have your own entrance through the utility and are separated from the rest of the house by a curtain. Take note that It is a few metres through the garden down some steps to reach the bathroom through the utility.

The shed does feel nice and tucked away from the rest of the house once you are inside but I am a full time mum at the moment so I am often at home and we do love and use the garden quite a bit, so though the shed is your own space, it is close to the house and you may well see us as you come and go and we hope you will feel really at home here. A lovely review said 'Jon and Daisy are excellent hosts and strike a perfect balance between being friendly, helpful and approachable without being intrusive or nosey, were more than happy to give us some advice on places to eat or see during our trip and Wilf the dog is a friendly big ball of fur!'
STAMPS OF APPROVAL- Shed and Breakfast was very happy to be featured in Bristol Evening Post's piece entitled "11 of the best Airbnb houses, flats, cabins and rooms in Bristol" where Laura Churchill wrote 'it really will be one of the most unique and charming places you can stay.' We also feature in Alistair Sawday's special places to stay collection of self catering places where they describe the shed as 'an arty, rustic space with all you need for an alternative eco-friendly stay.' So do check us out online where you'll find these articles and write ups as well as our own dedicated shed and breakfast website.
BREAKFAST- Bristol and the surrounding area has some wonderful producers who we really wanted to support so we offer a delicious locally sourced and mainly organic breakfast hamper at £10 per day per person. Please let us know when booking and we will make one up specially for you, produce will vary according to the seasons but as a base line the hamper will include local organic sourdough bread, local organic butter, local strawberry jam, locally roasted coffee, local organic eggs, local organic yoghurt, organic fruit and organic luxury muesli.
WILF THE DOG- he is friendly as can be and mostly quiet but he does do a couple of protective barks when people knock on the door or come into the garden, just give him a tummy tickle and he'll be purring in no time.
CHARITY- Thank you for helping us host young homeless people - For every booking we take, £5 of your hard earned pennies will go towards helping us host young homeless people in Bristol and provide them with a a hot meal and a welcoming and supportive place to stay via the charity Nightstop.
ECO- we have solar pv panels and solar thermal for our electricity and water and there is a recycling and compost bin in the shed. Also all the produce we use in the hamper is locally produced, organic and comes in biodegradable packaging where possible.
BELLS - We are really used to Trinity Church sounding its Bells each hour but we did want to highlight that if you are a super light sleeper then you should be aware that the church does sound its bells to let you know the time on the hour. Only one guest has ever mentioned them but I just wanted to flag it up just in case that sounds like something that might affect you. x
Whilst you're staying at the shedandbreakfast we want you to treat the space like it's your own home.
All we ask is that you are friendly to our neighbours because they are all lovely! and that you keep the shed smoke and shoe free and raves to a minimum!
Other than that have fun, relax and enjoy the shed and if you do have a dog you would like to bring do ask, sometimes we can have quiet non barking pooches! but no barkers as it may set Wilf off...!
Hi, I'm Daisy from Devon and my husband Jon is from Somerset but we met in Boston Tea Party in Clifton Village and very much call Bristol home. We bought 12 Ambra Vale South back in 2013 and moved in to The Yellow Shed during a pretty dramatic renovation of our home which included taking off the roof, ripping up the floors and knocking down every single internal wall!!!! We revelled in shed living and during the two years it took to rebuild our home the shed became a wedding planning hub strewn with bunting and table centres and a refuge from the elements as two winters passed. Jon runs a family building business with his brother and dad and I am now a full time mum to our little lad Indy who was born in July 2015. Before I became full time mum to Indy, I was working with vulnerable young people in Bristol and look forward to doing so again though our role as hosts for the charity Nightstop. We save £5 from every guest's booking in the shed to help us host homeless young people in Bristol and I very much look forward to playing a role in supporting this section of society again. We welcome you to stay in The Yellow Shed and hope you love the area as much as we do. We love to travel and stay in unique spots in our camper van or in air bnbs and other special places to stay, we are foodies and have a passion for the great outdoors, music, theatre, film and meeting new people. We now have a little family including Wilf the dog and we look forward to sharing our corner of the world with you if you visit us at the shedandbreakfast or to meeting you as we go on our travels ourselves.
