A huge Beastie Boys mural greets you the second you walk through the door to this New York inspired warehouse conversion, once an old Victorian paint factory. Double-height ceilings, exposed brickwork, wooden floorboards and original metal beams sit perfectly alongside huge comfy sofas, original art, magazines and little designer touches. A little piece of Brooklyn in Bristol’s creative quarter.
Paintworks is situated alongside the River Avon between the areas of Brislington and Totterdown. It’s a vibrant and exciting place to stay whilst you are in Bristol and is home to a host of creative businesses, a handful of lofts, artist studios, small communal courtyards, tree lined alley ways, river benches and green spaces.
There are two original American Airstream’s called Convoy Espresso which offers great coffee, pastries and sandwiches. Boca Pizza bar onsite also offers great pizza’s along with other delicious foods. You can also pop in for an alcoholic beverage or a coffee. The Paintworks event space also regularly hosts weekend art shows and local food festivals.
If it’s a quiet tranquil walk you’re after then just a 5 minute skip and a hop over the road from Paintworks is the truly beautiful Arnos Vale Cemetery. It’s a 45 acre haven of peace and quiet right in the middle of the city. There’s numerous nature walks, a café and a small shop all surrounded by some of the most beautiful woodland Bristol has to offer.
On the opposite side of the River Avon take a quick walk over one of Brunel’s first bridges along the Bristol and Bath railway and cycle path, great for a family stroll, an evening jog or for the more adventurous a 10 mile bike ride straight to Bath city centre.

Carol stayed in The Loft April 2018
The design of the apartment – contemporary and funky – location was great – close to town and the railway station.
