Bristol Group Accommodation
West Country Games may well be an easy choice of activity for any stag or hen group visiting Bristol, but finding Bristol group accommodation may not be as simple.
When you’re planning a short break, finding the right place to rest your head can be a daunting task; the location, price, and quality of the environment can make or break a stay. So when you’re searching on behalf of a group, the pressure intensifies.
Conventional chain hotels are the obvious choice for Bristol group accommodation, but they don’t necessarily offer the best experience for a fun-filled weekend away. If you’re on a stag or hen weekend, it’s often tricky to ensure all rooms are close to each other (or even on the same floor), and other than the overpriced hotel bar, there’s nowhere for your group to come together.
So here are a few of the finest places for your group to rest those weary heads and have loads of fun, in and around Bristol.
As seen in the Times’ ‘Coolest places to stay in the UK’, Number 38 in Clifton meets all criteria. The Georgian house is ideally located off of Whiteladies road, close to Clifton village – filled with buzzing bars and some of Bristol’s finest restaurants.
This modern townhouse offers a selection of tastefully decorated rooms, and most importantly, an incredible terraced bar to enjoy a drink with your party. This has to be the ultimate in Bristol group accommodation if you can afford it.
If you fancy a bit more of a cottage feel, The Barn at Trymwood is a superb choice for larger parties. Situated just three miles from Bristol city centre, this cosy cottage is a great option for those looking for a city break with a country feel.
The Barn sleeps four and features a real log stove and wonderful gardens – the perfect hangover cure for those lazy sunny afternoons. The cottage even features a piano, so you can make music from the comfort of your own (temporary) home!
For a more central safe-catering place to stay, Caledonia Mews in Clifton is a beautiful abode for smaller parties. Recently decorated to a high standard, the cute cottage is conveniently located in the heart of Clifton’s vibrant centre – filled with coffee shops, cocktail bars and delicious restaurants.
Clifton is a great place to spend a hen or stag weekend, thanks to the close proximity of so many lively bars, and is just a short walk to the even more lively Gloucester road.
Looking for something to entertain your group before returning to your dream accommodation? Bristol has some incredible activities on offer for larger parties, whatever the weather. If you prefer a more outdoorsy team building day, try West Country Games for an incredibly fun-fuelled day out.
There’s a huge range of lively group activities available; Vivky Pollard sumo wrestling, bungee cider runs and pitchfork duels are only a few options that are bound to have your group or party in hysterics.
West Country Games will even assign your group an activity host, to take pictures and guide you around your memorable (and somewhat crazy) day out! Cocktail making, cider tasting, cider tours and boat parties up the river Avon are also a great way to bond with your friends.
