The village of Failand lies approximately 3.5 miles from Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s famous Suspension bridge which allows direct access to Clifton Village and Bristol City Centre. The village itself offers amenities including a farm shop and coffee house and public house. Long Ashton Village (approx. 2 miles travelling distance) offers a further variety of shops and recreational facilities. Within 1.5 miles there are two golf courses and a choice of either Audley Village or David Lloyd sports and Leisure Clubs. The nearby Ashton Court Estate offers acres of open countryside proving ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding. Access to the motorway network at junction 19 of the M5 is within four miles, Bristol International Airport is within seven and a half miles and Bristol Temple Meads (with access to London Paddington) within five miles. A truly rare blend of a rural location on the edge of the city.
(From Clifton) Depart Bristol across the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge (£1 toll) on the B3129 as far as the traffic lights opposite the gates to Ashton Court. Turn right at these traffic lights onto the A369 towards Portishead. After about half a mile, at another set of lights, turn left into Beggar Bush Lane. Continue along this road past the Bristol & Clifton Golf Club on your right for about two miles until you come to another set of traffic lights on a crossroad. You are now in Failand. Turn right at these traffic lights onto Clevedon Road and after about half a mile the subject property can be found on the left-hand side with a small layby to pull into just before the village café and shop.
