Sorry to hear about nasty new neighbours . Have always liked what I've seen of Bristol when I've visited friends; they lucked out and bought an old (Victorian?) terraced property in Bedminster back around ~2006 I think, which they've maxed out with extending over the years. They've also been very financially astute with using the loft conversion to put up loads of language students and are well on the way to being mortgage free in less than 10 years . Still struggling to get in a position to buy our first place whilst we've just been given notice by current landlords to move out as they're moving in… renting, great innit!
