Being a tourist involves amongst other attributes, the ability to observe, snoop or downright stare at any public or private scenarios. Ethical comforts or lack thereof, matter to some but in the "passing-through" phase of meandering through private areas is cool by me. A lovely lady stopped to watch us looking at her cottage and approached us with a conviviality... More

A lovely hamlet of simple cottages, worth a visit if you are near Blaise. Don't forget the cottages are lived in though.

Lovely collection of individual cottages built for poor residents. Will not take long to walk around and free entry but may not be worth going miles out of the way as so small.

This is a fascinating enclave. I felt sheepish wandering around such a private space, but the two residents we saw couldn't have been more friendly. We stayed in the middle of the green, careful not to invade privacy and stayed only for a few minutes, but a lovely few minutes it was!

I discovered Blaise Hamlet many years ago and never tire of taking visitors to see this very picturesque hamlet. It was originally built to house staff from the nearby Blaise Castle but is now owned by the National Trust and each unique cottage is occupied. I was fortunate several years ago to be visiting when one property was undergoing renovation.... More

To the locals it is known as blaise Castle. Lots of fields and a children's play area with swings etc. The walk up through the woods are lovely. We haven't reached the top but I understand that there is a ruin which is known as the castle. If you like walking and exploring then this is the place to come.

Blaise Hamlet is and cluster of little 'chocolate box' cottages, hidden away on the outskirts of Bristol. Once you have found it there is on the roadside parking. There is not charge to walk around but the houses are occupied, so no peering through windows. Adults will find the size and shapes of the houses interesting.
