The area across the Clifton downs is popular with those looking for 1920’s style houses flooded with light and lots of space.
Stoke Bishop has a plethora of these around a village hall served by a row of shops on Druid Hill. The roads feel wider and generally the area has a feeling of more space.
My overseas clients bought a large off market property in Stoke Bishop as their children were due to attend Clifton College. After much searching and researching of different areas including the Chew Valley within North Somerset a beautiful house on the edge of the downs in Stoke Bishop was decided on as the house had a much larger garden than we could find anywhere else in Bristol at the time and a really secluded feel being on a no through lane plus the convenience of being close to Clifton College so her boys could cycle to school.
On the Western fringe of the downs is Sneyd Park with it’s high end houses. This area is adjacent to the Avon Gorge. The area is attractive to those wanting to be surrounded by open spaces. Living in Sneyd Park means you are within an easy walk to Blaise Castle with its acres of open space and a stones throw from the Clifton Downs. Shops, bars and gyms are less easy to come by on foot but all are a short drive away.
