Lovely little historical hamlet, great to have a quick walk around before or after going to Blaise estate. Normally is quite a tranquil place but the little cottages are unique and have people living.

A bit of a hidden gem really and undoubtedly easy to miss. The hamlet is a collection of old cottages designed by John Nash and now under the ownership of the National Trust. The cottages are all inhabited so they can only be seen from...More

A bit hard to find but a picturesque stop. The charming cottages sit around a gorgeous sundial. Even on a rainy winter day, we appreciated the gardens and design. So many unique architectural details to see....each home has its own personality.

These buildings are amazing, all different and all inhabited. Like a time gone by. The chimneys are what keeps me returning time and time again as there are not many chimneys like this to see. Also dovecote. Very peaceful too to sit and contemplate.

A wonderful idyll in amongst the Bristol suburbs: you would not know it is there, behind a simple garden gate, unless you have a National Trust handbook and found it in there as we did. Park in the nearby Blaise Castle car park, and ask...More
