Lower Failand is a particularly sought after rural village on the outskirts of Bristol within North Somerset. Church Lane proves to be an enviable, tranquil position within the village beneath the spire of St Bartholomew's Church. Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s world famous suspension bridge is four miles distant providing direct access to Clifton Village and Bristol City Centre. Local amenities include a post office/general store, public house, village hall, cricket pitch and church within one mile in the village of Failand. Some more comprehensive facilities including high street banks and supermarkets are within three and a half miles at the nearby towns of either Portishead or Nailsea.
Bristol City Centre is situated approximately five miles away with Temple Meads railway station offering direct communication with central London. Lower Failand itself is situated near Junction 19 of the M5 motorway thus allowing excellent links to the national motorway network. Bristol International Airport offers daily flights to Europe and can be found within approximately 10 miles to the southwest. A choice of golf courses can be found within five miles as well as David Lloyd Leisure Club or Chorus Hotel & Country Club. The property is ideally located for those pursuing outdoor activities including golf, horse riding, walking and cycling. Lastly, the area is particularly well served for schooling in both the state and private sectors including most notably The Downs School that is within 1¼ of a mile of the subject property.
