This is a National Trust 'village' built for Blaise estate workers originally in 1811. I went here recently for the first time with my elderly father. We had a bit of trouble actually finding it as it is hidden away from the main street - in fact, what I didn't realise was that it is actually not a street at... More

We have Lilliput Lane models of 2 of these quaint houses, but I was very disappointed to go recently to find little colour, grass uncut, and a rather down-at-heel feel. Perhaps they are better in the summer? Unique, though, with unusual, tall chimneys.

All the buildings were individually built and though very quiet and relaxing, they are all lived in.

How could I have ever missed this place? It is serene and a wonderful place to visit - all the more so as it is actually lived in. All town planners should be made to visit this seemingly ideal living space and housing

Tucked away just 5 minutes walk from the Blaise Castle estate, this little hamlet takes you back in time. It's secluded, peaceful and makes an enjoyable little interlude to walk round or to pause and meditate.

This quaint little hamlet is quite hidden from view until you go through the gate, then you feel completely transported back in time, beautiful and picturesque

Nine beautiful cottages dotted around a village green. That's it! But what a village green, tucked away behind a little gate (easy to miss) off a busy road! Definitely worth a peek if you are in the area, where there are quite a few NT properties to visit.

A Beautiful little Hamlet right next to Blaise Castle House. The 8-odd cottages are occupied, so you cannot visit them, but a stroll through this peaceful hamlet is well worth it.

This collection of cottages--which are owned by residents, so please respect their privacy--are quite amazing. If you visit Blaise Castle House first there's an exhibit (and free parking) which explains their history and shows scale models of all nine cottages. The real cottages were built around 1811 for retired employees of the Quaker banker John Harford, who owned Blaise Castle... More

This is a group of thatched cottages designed by John Nash in 1811 for estate servants, just across the road from Blaise Castle. You can take bus No 1 from St Augustine's Parade which runs every 10 minutes and takes 20 minutes, or bus No 43 which passes the castle but takes 45 minutes from town. Lovely photogenic opportunity.
