Abbots Leigh is regarded by many as one of the most sought after villages on the outskirts of the city with its own Church, public house and village hall all being within half a mile of the property. Clifton Village is situated approximately two miles away across Isambard Kingdom Brunels world famous Suspension Bridge and the city centre approximately three and a half miles. Junction 19 of the M5 gives access to the UK motorway network and can be found within four miles and Bristol International Airport around nine miles.
For those that enjoy country pursuits such as walking, riding, wildlife and local beauty spots, a network of public footpaths lead out of the village for the enjoyment of the surrounding countryside. A variety of beautiful walks including Abbots Pool and the Avon Gorge (in itself a designated area of outstanding natural beauty) are on offer quite literally from the doorstep.
An active village community enjoys regular use of amenities such as a well-tended village field with childrens play area and boule pitch, the Holy Trinity church, a village hall with skittles alley and The George public house. The area is well served for schooling in both the state and private sectors.
