Blaise Hamlet

Hallen Rd, Bristol BS10 7QY, UK – 01275 461900

Blaise Hamlet was fun to see. They are very quaint cottages around a beutiful green. They were built for pensioners of the estate and what a lovely cottage to retire too. There is not a huge amount of things here; no toilets, shop, parking (there is parking on the road next to the houses but not an official National Trust car park), you can't go in to the houses (there are tenants in them) and you can't have picnics on the green. Given all of that the cottages really are very pretty to look at. It's definitely worth a visit if you are near by. I would recommend.

Pretty preserved cottages around the village green. Takes about 15 minutes to see it all. Worth combining with a visit to nearby Blaise Castle

They are trying hard to make something really nice in the community and worth a visit (its frer but worth a few pounds donation to help their efforts).

Great excuse for a potter about - cafe, animals to look at, friendly staff, good activities organised periodically (e.g. workshops). Free parking available. Closed Mondays.

Local Parks & Gardens

Blaise Castle Estate

Kings Orchard, 1 Queen Street, Bristol BS2 0HQ, UK – 0117 922 3719

Really beautiful walk even on a sunny winters day. Plenty of little streams and lovely Wellie walks as well as a path for push/ wheel chairs. Great play area for all ages with a coffee area for adults near by. Great open area for a picnic, just hope for a warmer day!

We love Blaise Castle, it has a large play area, walks around the estate, a climb up to the castle gives you lovely views over Bristol. In the summer the castle itself is open for visitors. There is also a nice walk through the small local village around the church and back up through the estate. Players of ingress and Pokémon go will find plenty of monuments to visit.

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around Shirehampton or Bristol. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.
Blaise Castle House Museum

Henbury Rd, Bristol BS10 7QS, UK – 0117 903 9818

Fantastic holiday activities for families, plus a community garden, dairy, thatched cottage, amphitheatre and orangerie. This is a hidden gem of a museum in a beautiful Victorian mansion set in wonderful landscaped public parkland in North West Bristol. There's coffee, snacks and toilets available, gift-shop, community space and quirky collections on display. It's free to enter, with donations encouraged. Open 11 - 4 Thursday to Sunday from 1st April to 31st Dec.

This place holds great memories for me when I was a kid, and still has magical places to be found. with over 600 acres of rolling parkland and woodlands there's plenty to see. Starting at Blaise Castle house and museum, a fine Georgian house which has a museum on the lower floors, displaying kitchen and cookware from times gone by. There is also an area where children's toys and the like are displayed, the whole thing is representative of a well to do Georgian family home. Years ago, there used to be a large children's paddling pool opposite the main house, allover no more than 6 inches deep, but on a sunny day, it was great fun. Next to the pool is a large sandstone alcove, this is a folly, and said to be the favourite resting place of local mythical giant's Goram and Vincent. If you walk around to the rear of the house you will see a massive greenhouse, that would have supplied the household kitchen, with all manner of exotic fruit and vegetables. past the end of the greenhouse there is a gate ( now locked ) that leads to a large pool, which was full of goldfish when I was a kid. Next to the pool is a small thatched roofed building, this was the Buttery, which supplied the main house kitchen with fresh milk, cheese and butter. Take the path down into the woodlands and eventually you will come across the old watermill that in the olden days would have been used by local farmers and bakers, where wheat grain would have been ground into flour, and no doubt would have also supplied the kitchen in the main house. The actual Castle which is a folly can be found about a mile along the park, just before you get to the plantation, and up and around the woodland path to the top, when you get there you'll be greeted by a magnificent castle folly, surrounded by a small park area and woodlands. If you walk over to fenced cliff edge, you will be rewarded with some wonderful views, the trees continue into the distance until they meet the sky. Only one very small fault, is that the parkland grass could do with cutting a little more often. ps if you find this review helpful, please give it a 👍

Kings Weston House

Kings Weston House, Kings Weston Ln, Bristol BS11 0UR, UK – 0117 330 3405

I have eaten here a few times now and I love it. The grounds and house itself is beautiful, with lovely woodland to explore nearby. The menu is now extensive, serving great breakfast options before midday and plenty of sandwiches, flat breads, burgers etc for lunch. The coffees on offer is great too, and the home made cakes are always very tempting. I've been a few times as it's close to home and I can definitely see this becoming a regular thing!

Fantastic Venue, we will be getting married here, the owner and staff are all very accommodating and lovely. Their food is incredible for both Sunday lunches and cafe fare. Fantastic building with great walks

Blaise Castle

Bristol BS10 7QT, UK – 0117 903 9818

To summarise... Set off early. Be prepared to walk a bit. Pick a sunny day and you'll be glad you went!

Fantastic grounds for a run in, with plenty of well maintained tracks, stepped sections and hills
