It was very difficult to find this hamlet, as it is more like a secluded garden in Henbury (the street name did not help either, and we never found the nearby castle at all, so you will have to make an effort!). It is a collection of 10 very cute houses, and worth a visit. Do read about the history... More

It really is like stepping into a fairy story. The houses are fascinating, with their pretty gardens and very unusual chimney pots. They all face different ways so they have privacy. I want to live there!

A little know attraction in Henbury, just around the corner from the Blaine Castle Park and gardens is the wonderful Blaise Hamlet. These beautiful little cottages, originally social housing for the Estate workers back in the day, have such unique architectural features that they are a must-see for all those interested in Bristol's heritage. Each cottage in individual in design... More

Blaise Hamlet is a small group of cottages of various styles around a small village green with a disused water pump in the middle. The cottages are lived in by private individuals, but the green and cottage fronts are open to public view. Some of the gardens are very well kept. If you are visiting the nearby Blaise Castle then... More

The hamlet is near to the Blaise Castle estate, which is a good place to park (free) and for the kids to walk and play(it has extensive grounds and play equipment, a museum and a folly of a castle). There are a couple of pubs within easy walking distance. The hamlet is very interesting- especially if you're interested in architecture-... More

If you're in the area,well worth the effort to have a look. The GPS will take you round the corner but what you look for is a small metal gate in the wall. The entrance is mewhat weedy and overgrown, perhaps the residents don't really want you to find it? Very pretty and quaint. IMO, not worth aspecial trip

Blaise Hamlet is a small walled cluster of cottages that were built in the 19th century for retired employees of a local banker. They are ridiculously picturesque, and stepping through the gate in the wall and into the village green feels like stepping back in time. The whole area is small, and with only seven cottages it will not take... More
