About the Area
Local area is vibrant and diverse, there are One Coffee, Porto Lounge and Grounded coffee shops, within walking distance. Porto Lounge has good gluten free menu and often has special meal deals.
3 supermarkets within few minutes walk.
Two large Victorian parks also easily accessible which provide lovely riverside/woodland walks, the river Frome runs through both.
Good local amenities along the high st and there is a cycle path which links Bristol and Bath.
The area is like a modern village, the name comes from ponds that were near the railway station and was formerly a quarry district and dates back as far as the 17th Century and was once covered by the Royal Forest of Kingswood.

I stayed at Shannon's home for two nights, she was warm welcoming and always up for a good chat. Her home is beautiful and well kept so you'll feel like you're in a 5 start hotel. Shannon is probably one of the sweetest and most genuine people I've met on homestay hands down. She even offered advise on renting property in Bristol which proved very useful to me. I highly recommend this homestay not just as a place to lay your head but as a place to meet a new friend.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile.
