Here we pick out five of the best areas of the city to live in.
First up on our list of where to live in Bristol is the popular suburb of Coalpit Heath. Lying around eight miles to the north-east of the city centre, the area is surrounded by countryside and also boasts green spaces such as Beesmoor Road Playing Field. With buses and car journeys into the city centre taking 20 minutes or less, don’t miss our Blackberry Park development along Park Lane.
Little more than a mile north of the city centre, Bishopston is a brilliant place to live if you want to be close to the heart of the action. Ideal for working or socialising in town, this mainly residential area also has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants nearby. It is also found within walking distance of Clifton - an affluent area where you’ll find more cafes and restaurants, as well as a number of top local schools.
Around six miles to the east of Bishopston, Emersons Green is popular for its relaxed vibes and feelings of space. Properties are generally larger than you’ll find in inner suburbs, while there are some wonderful properties in this area improving the standard of local property. This includes our exciting Lyde View development along Honeysuckle Road.
If you’re wondering where to live near Bristol that’s a little way out of the city and also provides good access to the coast, Nailsea could be of interest. You can enjoy a semi-rural way of life in this area surrounded by lots of beautiful natural scenery, while Engine Lane’s Parish Brook is the place to go for contemporary 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes in this peaceful spot.
