Travels | Blaise Hamlet rustic cottages around a green

Never hesitate to go far away, beyond all seas, all frontiers, all countries, all beliefs. However, don’t forget that sometimes beautiful discoveries are just in front of you! Blaise Hamlet is an impressing hamlet not too far away from my home in Bristol, near Henbury village. It is composed of a group of nine small but spectacular cottages around a green. The cottages are all unique and include brick chimneys and dormer windows with some having thatched roofs.

Blaise Hamlet was built around 1811 for retired employees of Quaker banker and philanthropist John Scandrett Harford, who owned Blaise Castle House. Since 1943 the cottages have been owned by the National Trust. They are modernised inside and still occupied, therefore they are not open to the public, but the ensemble may be viewed from the green. It is quite small area so if you are travelling from more far away you may have to plan to see other places around as you won’t spend here too much time, but it’s definitely a place worth to visit! Especially if you live in Bristol.


Kad pamatytum kažką naujo ir įdomaus, kartais visai nereikia tolimų kelionių. Kartais nuostabūs atradimai tupi visai prieš pat nosį. Blaise Hamlet – visai netoli mano namų, Bristolio pakraštyje esantis įspūdingo grožio ir unikalumo kaimelis. Kaimelį sudaro devyni senoviški kotedžai, pastatyti maždaug 1811 metais: su kaminais, mažais langeliais, kaip kurie dar ir su šiaudiniais stogais.

Nameliai buvo skirti į pensiją išėjusiems bankininkams. Nuo 1943 nameliai buvo persleisti National Trust (organicazija sauganti kultūrinį paveldą). Nameliai viduje yra modernizuoti, juose tebegyvena žmonės, todėl jie nėra atviri lankytojams, tačiau juos galima apžiūrėti tik iš išorės, pasivaikščiojant kaimelio teritorijoje. Kadangi terotorija labai nedidelė, jūsų vizitas čia irgi ilgai netruks, tad jeigu keliaujate iš toliau, turbūt reikėtų suplanuoti, ką dar įdomaus galite pamatyti aplinkui, tačiau ši vieta tikrai įspūdinga ir verta jūsų dėmesio! Ypatingai, jeigu gyvenat Bristolyje.
