212 Eco House is a self-contained 1 bedroom guesthouse set in a lovely South West facing garden. The bedroom is large enough for a king size bed plus double and single sofa beds. There is a double sofa bed in the living area plus dining table to seat up to 6 people.
The guesthouse is tucked down a little lane behind Room 212, a shop and gallery selling art and craft by over 50 Bristol artists. The house is just round the corner from Gloucester Road, the longest high street of Independent Shops in Europe. This lovely high street offers a range of bakeries, fresh food shops, pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants. The nearest section to the house, Glos Rd Central, is the artistic area with several galleries and gift shops. The wide pavements have lots of planters full of flowers.
212 Eco House is an oasis of peace and calm despite being so close to Gloucester Road. Built from sustainable and reclaimed materials it has an organic, natural feel similar to a country cottage. The internal walls are made from mud and straw, with sheep’s wool insulation and painted with lovely natural paints. The house is decorated with art and crafts from the Room 212 gallery. Furniture is upcycled and decoupaged with beautiful colours. The open plan kitchen / living room has double doors opening to the garden. The kitchen, painted in a fresh duck egg blue with solid oak worktops and is fully fitted with everything needed to cook and eat a main meal. Upstairs the king size bed is made from recycled chunky timbers that held up the roof of the Victorian warehouse which originally stood on the site. Bricks from the warehouse were used for the foundations, walkways and flower beds. There is a shower room upstairs and downstairs. The house has solar panels and a ‘living’ roof of plants. The garden is full of climbing plants, fruit trees and flowers with plenty of places to sit and catch the sun throughout the day.
