Weekend escapes from Bristol - UK weekend breaks - Cool Places to Stay in the UK

Weekend escapes – under 2 hours from Bristol

Don't get us wrong, we love Bristol, but is there any UK city better sited for a quick weekend getaway? With Wales, the Cotswolds and Somerset virtually next door, and Dorset and Devon within easy reach, you're spoiled for choice if you fancy packing up early on a Friday and heading for the hills (or the moors, or the valleys, or the coast!). You could be looking at a night or two in the Brecon Beacons,  a city stay in Oxford, or a Gloucestershire country house hotel. Our enticing guide to the best weekend escapes from Bristol runs the gamut from cosy B&Bs to boutique hotels, fancy glamping to seaside hostelling, and will have you settled in on a Friday night under 2 hours from Bristol by car or train. That's the Cool Place taken care of – the rest is up to you!
