Where is Monica Wills House?

Located in Bedminster on the south side of the city, Monica Wills House is ideally positioned to enjoy the hustle and bustle of urban living from the eclectic local area to the historic harbourside running through the centre of Bristol.


The bright lights of Bedminster

If you like to be busy, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in and around Monica Wills House. See the sights around Bristol’s waterfront, take in a museum or gallery and explore an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars and independent shops. Join the annual Balloon Fiesta rooftop barbeque with the best views of the night glow in this part of town. And for ventures further afield you’ll find excellent transport links right outside your door.

Retirement homes with top views

The five-storey central atrium is truly dramatic. Flooded with natural light, the indoor street is the perfect place for getting together for a game of indoor boules or a neighbourly chat, all sheltered from the elements. In fairer weather unwind in the roof gardens and take in the stunning panoramic views. There’s no better way to see Bristol’s top landmarks such as the Clifton suspension bridge and the colourful hillside terraces of Totterdown.

Urban lifestyle retirement homes

Sit out on your balcony and soak up the sunshine. On the upper floors, our modern purpose-built apartments have magnificent views across the city and countryside beyond. Your apartment is your space to make your own. With one and two bedroom flats available to buy or rent, you can have everything just as you like it. And pets are welcome too.


Offering a huge range of amenities and activities

If you’d like to try a new fitness routine there’s plenty to keep you active. Balance body and mind in Tai Chi classes or get moving and grooving to the rhythms of Zumba. There’s also a fully equipped fitness suite with specialist instructors to tailor a programme of gentle exercise that’s right for you.
