We had decided to visit Bristol for the weekend and needed a large property for our extended family to relax in. We wanted something a bit different from your average hotel and felt that the Gothic Mansion ticked all the boxes. On arrival we were met by the owner who was very welcoming. We were pleased he took us round the building and talked about the extensive and fascinating history of this grade 2 listed building. He was always on hand if we had any queries. One of guests left their lights on and the owner was on hand to jump start the car. Something that you would not expect, but very welcome. All in all the house was beautiful in appearance with lovely bathrooms and an amazing Jacuzzi in the 4 poster bedroom. Definitely recommend you stay here.

“Excellent party house”

A massive house perfect for a large group gathering with all the added extra's you need. Andrew and Misha helped us source catering and even looking into getting a cinema screen for us.

The house is full of character and a great location for easy access of everything Bristol has to offer. Everyone that made the trip couldn't believe the size of the house, more than enough space for the largest party.

“The best bright side!”

We stumbled upon this charming Manor house , it was perfect and simply amazing. Not only did the owners save a surprise weekend for my dads 70th birthday, within only a weeks notice of our arrival ( our original booking was cancelled at the last minute) but the owners , luckily for us! were extremely helpful, accommodating and managed to rearrange the restaurants and activities and within only a few hours our weekend was back on track.
This was nothing short of a disaster until the Gothic Mansion saved the day. I can't begin to describe the place as accurately as I would like, you have to be there to really appreciate it. It has a gorgeous mix of timeless opulence and homely comfort. The grand dining room was the perfect setting for our birthday celebration and the elegant lounge was the perfect place to relax in front of the roaring log fire.
The Gothic Mansion is so historic and it's personality lovingly maintained. It is such a happy place, conveniently located close to the city, each room is unique and charming, a house/hotel doesn't provide and the beds are all Egyptian cotton, not cheap bedding. There are nice walks around the area or a taxi into the centre only takes a couple of minutes. Andrew and Misha thank you so much for all your efforts and positive "can do" attitude which made the weekend a whole new level of special. Your house was the perfect solution to our difficult predicament. Thank you so much for everything, from the grateful party of 14. The children are already asking me when they can return to the enchanted castle!

I stayed here in january with my family and found it to be ideal for our needs. The mansion is well kitted out and has masses of different rooms. It is well secluded and has nice views of the city.
We found it to be conveniently situated for city centre shopping and restaurants. The owners were really helpful, communicative and flexible to our needs. (They rearranged some of the single beds so that our children could be with us in the same bedroom.)
We were really impressed with the bathrooms, kitchen and large communal lounge areas. I had read the reviews before hand and it didnt disappoint!
We had a lovely time! A big thanks to Andrew and Misha for making our stay wonderful.

27 of us made the trip to Bristol for Easter weekend and could not have had a better time. the Mansion was spacious, beautiful, functional and conveniently situated a short walk/drive from the city centre and the large kitchen and dining facilities meant that we were able to prepare hearty banquets for the entire group and all eat at the same table - something that hasn't been possible when we have rented similar properties in the past. Andrew and Misha went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and provided us with useful information on Bristol's sights and attractions - I would recommend the Gothic Mansion to any groups looking for a weekend getaway.
