Leigh Woods is a highly sought after location on the very edge of the dramatic Avon Gorge (which is a designated sight of special scientific interest). The fashionable shopping district of Clifton is within only one 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 the subject property has direct access on to) which is ideal for walking, horse riding and mountain biking. 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 lists) are prevalent adding to this truly unique and coveted environment.
Travelling from Clifton via the Clifton Suspension Bridge on the B3129 continue nearly as far as the junction traffic lights. Approximately 50 yards on the left hand side prior to the lights and opposite Church Road junction, take the slip road signposted Bristol A369. Turn left onto the main road, then approximately 250 yards down the hill turn right into Rownham Hill Close. Immediately after turning into the close (approx. 50 yards) turn right through a set of stone pillar entrance gates and continue forward to a pair of black entrance gates which is the entrance to the house.
