Redrow - Frenchay Park, BS16
Part of an exciting new development on the former site of Frenchay Hospital, Frenchay Park will deliver high quality Redrow homes in a popular suburb of Bristol with excellent commuter links. Just a couple of minutes from the M32 and M4, and just 6 miles from the city centre, you couldn’t be better placed to enjoy all that Bristol has to offer, without living in the city itself.
Register your interest now for these superb homes near Bristol, and you’ll be the first to know about our new Frenchay Park development, which is coming soon.
Frenchay has a thriving local community, based around the Village Hall, with a wide range of clubs, societies and events to get involved in. You’ll also enjoy the delightful riverside walks through the woods of the Frome Valley. Frenchay Cricket Club has its own place in history, as its captain was once none other than the legendary W.G. Grace. Golfers are also well catered for locally, with both Filton and Hambrook golf courses within easy reach. Further afield, Bristol has much to offer in the way of leisure and pleasure, with multi screen cinemas, ten pin bowling, a selection of theatres and music venues, such as the Bristol Hippodrome, two football clubs and top class rugby union all within easy reach, along with a range of fascinating and fun tourist attractions around the quayside.
It is hoped that the new development will eventually boast its own, purpose built primary school for the younger children from up to 450 new homes. Until then, you can choose from a selection of OFSTED ‘good’ rated primary schools in the local area, including Frenchay CofE Primary, Begbrook Primary, Frome Valley Primary Academy and Bromley Heath Infants and Juniors. Older children can also choose from several ‘good’ rated schools, including Fairfield High, Abbeywood Community School and Downend School. Bristol also has excellent provision for independent education, with Gracefield Prep close to the development, Colston’s School, within easy reach, taking children aged 3-18 and QEH and Badminton School in the city catering for older boys and girls respectively.
Frenchay has a strong sense of local community, with lots of local shops and stores to serve your every need. Further afield, you’ll find Bristol is made for retail therapy, with a mix of modern town centre shopping malls, out of town shopping centres and a fascinating selection of unusual independent shops around the historic harbour. Check out Cribbs Causeway, with over 130 stores to choose from along with your favourite chain restaurants and leisure facilties, head for the city for the 120 stores of Cabot Circus and an extensive pedestrianised shopping area, or stay closer to home with Abbey Wood Retail Park, just across the motorway in Filton.
Frenchay Park is just half a mile from J1 of the M32 link road into Bristol, with the city centre just 6miles away. The M4 is just one junction up in the other direction offering links across the South of England and South Wales. Newport is 27miles and Cardiff is around 40miles, with Bath 18miles, Swindon 36miles and Gloucester 35miles. Trains from nearby Bristol Parkway will speed you into town in just 12 minutes, and also offer direct services to London in 1½hrs, and Exeter and Birmingham both in just over an hour. There are over a thousand parking spaces at this popular commuter station so you can park and ride without worrying about city congestion.
