While I was in Bristol, England, with two friends of mine, we stayed at a luxurious flat ideally located between the Bristol city center and the historic Clifton Village. The serviced apartments at Beech House are run by Urban Creation, a local Bristol property management company. With fourteen apartments and two mews houses, there are accommodation choices for everyone.
Bristol is a large city in southwest England, on the River Avon. It is a former trade, shipping, and expedition capital; today the docks have been revived as centers for arts and heritage. It is one of the UK’s most popular tourism destinations. Located about 100 miles west of London and near the firth that separates England and Wales. Despite being in England, it was still heavily influenced by the Welsh.
Bristol’s art scene is incredibly diverse. The Arnolfini Centre is a great place to view contemporary exhibitions, dance performances, and gallery openings, as well as sit in on lecture series and poetry readings. Other venues are home to antique collections, Old World art collections, and more.
Clifton Village, a short five-minute drive from Bristol city center, has plenty of unique shopping opportunities, many of them in the historic Victorian arcade in the village center. Above the Downs is the Observatory, Camera Obscura, and Cave. From here, visitors have a beautiful view down over the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge.
Urban Creation manages a portfolio of contemporary, stylish flats. They are perfect for busy travelers, students, professionals, or families who need a little more space. All apartments are hand-picked, renovated, and individually designed to ensure they meet Urban Creation standards.
The company has one large Victorian villa, in which all apartments are located, and two mews houses. The location of the apartments, right in between the modern city center and the popular, historic center of Clifton, is ideal for exploring the city on foot.
When you book, the company sends you the code for a box next to the front gate. Upon arrival, all you have to do is enter the code to open the box and retrieve your apartment key.
Apartment Number Seven
We stayed in apartment number seven, which is located on the first floor of the main Victorian villa. When we arrived, there was a tray with tea and coffee, as well as a bowl of fruit, waiting for us. As the apartments are serviced, we had a daily house-cleaning service.
Our apartment was cozy, with two bedrooms, a living space and kitchen, and one bathroom. There is one large king-size bed in the largest bedroom, which can be made into two twin beds. The second bedroom has a double bed. The bedding on all three of our beds was incredible: Egyptian cotton sheets, plump pillows, and a Hypnos mattress.
Our living space and kitchen was equipped with everything we might need, from appliances to utensils and dishware. For the coffee drinkers, every apartment and house comes with its own Nespresso machine. The living space had a small vintage table with dining chairs, a small sofa and coffee table, and a television. We also had a washing machine in a separate cupboard.
The style of the Beech House apartments is vintage English meets modern contemporary. Most apartments feature a few pieces of mahogany furniture alongside sleek sofas or Danish-style kitchen furnishings. The beds all feature new Hypnos mattresses and soft sheets under light comforters. Bedrooms all have bespoke blackout curtains too, perfect for the summer months when the sun sets late.
All of the apartments only have one bathroom each, while the mews houses have two each. Every bathroom has a rain shower and Algotherm toiletries. Towels, plush soft bathrobes, and slippers were also provided.
Some apartments have private balconies or terraces. The Beech House website lists each apartment in detail if a private outdoor space is important to you. Additionally, some of the apartments have fireplaces; again, this is listed on the website.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Beech House apartments in Bristol. They are perfect for travelers who prefer their own space, people who enjoy cooking their own meals, or families who need a little more space than a hotel room provides. I highly recommend the serviced apartments for your next trip to Bristol, England!

I was a guest at the Beech House but as always opinions are my own.
