Clustered around a village green are nine ‘rustic’ cottages. Designed by John Nash in his ‘Picturesque’ style, they were built in 1811 for the wealthy Bristol merchant and banker, John Harford who built Blaise Castle House.
Harford was a Quaker and a philanthropist and had these cottages built to house employees from his Estate who were no longer able to work.
These cottages are all different and have a storybook appearance having rubble walls, thatched roofs and Jacobean-style chimneys. The cottages are in the care of the National Trust but are not open to the public as tenants still live in them.
Visitors are welcome to visit the Hamlet Green, village pump and stone sundial.
