3 bed cottage for sale in The Batch, Bristol (ref: 9237313)

A surprisingly spacious 3 double bedroom semi detached period cottage that is believed to date from the 1820’s set in large gardens in a rural hamlet on the very edge of Backwell.

The cottage would originally have been a modest two up two down property though, more recently the house has been significantly enlarged to create a spacious three reception room, 3 bedroom family home of character with updates including a very recently refurbished bathroom.

The private gardens face south and are divided into two sections by a hedge that could be removed to open the whole garden as one if required. The remaining space around the cottage is mostly a gravelled drive that offers ample parking while a double garage size car port stands to one side.

The accommodation is not only spacious with all main rooms arranged to take advantage of the outlook to the south over the gardens or in the case of the dining room to the west into the setting sun.

The gardens are of good size but a few steps away down the no through lane there is access via a footpath to some very picturesque open countryside with Backwell Woods beyond.


The cottage occupies a private, semi rural, but not isolated setting, well away from any through traffic in the best location in this little known hamlet that surprises many by being part of the village of Backwell though the village centre is nearly 2.5 miles away. Nevertheless, the house is within the Backwell School catchment at infant, junior and secondary levels.

For the commuter good road connections are available to the major centres in the area with Bristol just 7 miles distant. Junctions 19, 20 and 21 of the M5 are all within easy reach allowing easy access to the country’s motorway network and a main line rail connection is available at nearby Nailsea and Backwell Station. Local leisure prospects are similarly attractive with good sporting and recreational facilities, various sports centres and three challenging golf courses including Bristol & Clifton, Long Ashton, Mendip Spring and almost on the doorstep Tall Pines, the latter found within ¼ mile.
