Leigh Woods is a highly sought after location on the very edge of the city on the opposite side of the dramatic Avon Gorge (which is designated a site of special scientific interest). The fashionable shopping district of Clifton is within only a mile, and is accessible across Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s world famous suspension bridge constructed in 1864. More comprehensive amenities within the city centre are within three miles.
For the active, a host of sporting, social and recreational facilities are readily available in and around the area with two reputable golf courses in nearby Failand and Long Ashton and the beautiful open grounds of Ashton Court Estate, which is ideal for walking, horse riding and mountain biking. The subject property offers immediate access to Leigh Woods itself forming some 200 hectares of woodland, owned and managed by the National Trust being ideal for family walks, running and cycling.
Leigh Woods is an area of special scientific interest rich in protected woodland and associated wildlife. Deer, rare butterflies and birdlife (including cuckoos, peregrine falcons and red kites) are prevalent adding to this truly unique and coveted environment. The National Trust even introduced Hebridian cattle within the woods in recent years to gently clear the site of Stoneleigh Camp (an ancient Iron Age Fort).
