The Curious Cabinet


The Boutique Art House has changed its name once more, finally coming full circle to return home as The Curious Cabinet; it finally all makes sense as it manages to hold, within one name, all of the creative, exciting and eclectic things that they do.

They still have the unique and highly praised Guesthouse in Bristol, both for weekend and mid week longer stays, amazing experience and value for boutique quality from £79 for a double room with reductions for longer stays. Fishponds on the Eastside is just a bus ride from the centre and really not far from anything – it really is special place that we promise you will not disappoint.

The house is also home to Sadie’s personal studio and gallery which doubles as a fabulously curious and intimate event space for all kinds of intriguing events.

Lastly, but not least, they have finished their amazing Showvans, and they are now ready for hire! A 40 min drive from Bristol for the most amazing getaway retreats – they are also available for hire as beautiful backdrops for film and photo shoots. If you have any queries about anything in The Curious Cabinet then please just get in touch with Sadie, who will be happy to answer any questions. Please call 0117 935 4964.
