About The Base (Plant Based)
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
Fiaz and Jacqui
We are plant based accommodation which means everyone is welcome but, out of compassion for ALL animals and our Earth, we do not allow animal based food products (meat, milk, cheese and eggs) on the premises. Your support is very much appreciated! We provide complimentary soya and oat milks and the nearby Marks & Spencer and Asda both have extensive plant based ranges if you want to try some out while you're here. Located on the edge of Bristol on the same side as Bath, we offer a detached and well appointed garden chalet with a view and outdoor hot tub. The Chalet sleeps 5, and we also offer three additional creatively refurbished rooms in the main house (same site) accommodating a further 5 guests. A large outdoor hot tub nestled under the canopy of a mature eucalyptus tree is an optional extra bookable for your exclusive use.
The chalet's elevated position and bi-folding doors to the decked terrace offer spacious views of the mature gardens and dramatic sunrises over the rolling Cotswolds beyond. Perfect for summertime but also very cosy in the winter with underfloor heating throughout and a real wood burner. The Base has been created by vegan couple Jacqui & Fiaz who are very experienced hosts and also keep rescued small animals roaming free in the garden during the day. We live on site so we are here if you need us. We have had a guesthouse and B&B business for over 10 years and after a break from this have realised that actually this is what we love to do and we have returned to it with refreshed passion! We also follow a plant based lifestyle and have a small animal rescue at home where we keep chickens and rabbits.
The Base feels like you're in the countryside but we are under 5 minutes' leafy stroll to Aspects Leisure Park with multi-screen cinema, restaurants, pub, 10 pin bowling, gym and swimming pool! Chiquito’s and Frankie & Benny’s both have a separate vegan menu. A few minute's further is Gallagher Retail Park with clothes shops, 24 hour supermarket and Cafe Nero. We are located in Hanham on the east edge of Bristol. Just 20 minutes' drive to Bristol's vibrant city centre, and 30 mins to the picturesque and historic city of Bath. Naturally, we also welcome guests who are travelling with pets. Cock Road Ridge is on our doorstep and is ideal for taking The Dog out with hills, wooded areas and views.
