This is a lovely little hamlet very close to Blaise castle. Very quaint and typically English, very well kept and well worth the short walk from the main Blaise estate.

The houses are lovely and the hamlet is very pretty and peaceful. However, not worth going to the area just to see it. If you're already there (visiting Blaise Castle, for example) then definitely go visit, just don't make a specific trip, I'd say.

Excellent place to visit, the park is fantastic for children although the coffee shop there can be very busy and expensive.

Never seen anything quite like it. It doesn't take long to view it, so it's not a major attraction, but still memorable. 'Story-book' setting and layout with thoughtful house designs. It's something that could do with replicating with 21st Century innovations as a comparison. It's free, but you need to respect the privacy of the residents.

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
