This hidden historic hamlet in Henbury holds heavenly houses hundreds years old! Each little cottage has a different style. Facinating chimneys , thatched roofs and leaded windows are just a few of the features of the cottages that were originally built for workers of the Kings Weston Estate of which Blaise Castle and House were a part. The hamlet is... More

It is similar to the cottages at Selworthy .These tiny cottages are worth a visit .These are private homes and are just for viewing from the outside .You park in blaise castle car park where there is more to...

This hamlet of cottages has a real nice feel about it, it feels like you are stepping into a bygone time when you enter through the gate. Each cottage has a unique chimney some of which are quite extravagant which add to the character of the area. This is set just outside of Blaise castle estate and are owned by... More

Blaise Hamlet is virtually undetectable from the road. It is a little known delight near to the Blaise Castle Estate ( a great place for a walk with the dog!) Originally built for workers on the estate it showcases various different styles of cottage in a tranquil setting. These are still lived in today and are very sought after and... More

Quite reluctant to review this place as it is tucked away quite well and a lovely peaceful place to visit as not many people know about this fairy tale selection of houses. You need to be aware that people do live in the quaint collection of houses and you are in their front garden area. Some seating available so lovely... More

This is well worth a visit if you're in the area. Each cottage is worth a visit on it's own. The hamlet is very picturesque.

Don't get me wrong this is a beautiful cute little hamlet of very old almshouses. However, you go in, walk around a close of (mainly private) little cottages and you walk out again. It's a worthwhile short look but it won;'t take up much time and isn't a big activity.

Reminded me of The Shire. :) Lovely old buildings to look at and a short 5 min walk if you're around the Blaise castle area.

This is a National Trust 'village' built for Blaise estate workers originally in 1811. I went here recently for the first time with my elderly father. We had a bit of trouble actually finding it as it is hidden away from the main street - in fact, what I didn't realise was that it is actually not a street at... More

We have Lilliput Lane models of 2 of these quaint houses, but I was very disappointed to go recently to find little colour, grass uncut, and a rather down-at-heel feel. Perhaps they are better in the summer? Unique, though, with unusual, tall chimneys.
