Bristol Living: Sneyd Park (BS9)

Image by Eileen Stonebridge at

Sneyd Park is an affluent and exclusive suburb of Bristol known as the home of local millionaires.

Originally developed in the Victorian era, Sneyd Park occupies an enviable position on the western fringe of Clifton Down adjacent to the Avon Gorge and Sea Walls observation point.

Here you will find grand Victorian and Edwardian villas and large detached houses set along tree-lined avenues.  Most properties have good sized gardens and garages which give the area a much more private feel than that of nearby Clifton.

Avon Gorge with its spectacular views is an area for keen conservationists, climbers and nature lovers for which the residents enjoy and are keen to preserve these aspects of the local area.

Prices vary greatly but for a house with views of the Downs or Avon Gorge, you can expect to pay upwards of a million.  

If you are looking for a high end property full of character with sweeping driveways, gated entrances and a large garden, not to mention some of the best views in the South West, Sneyd Park is for you.

If however you love the area but you have a more modest budget, some of the older mansion houses have been renovated into flats and apartments.

For day to day amenities you have neighbouring Stoke Bishop, a quiet and attractive suburb with local shops, village hall, a good primary school and the stunning St Marys Magdalene Church.

For larger retail outlets and all the major UK stores, The Mall at Cribb’s Causeway is within easy reach, as is the large entertainment complex.

If you have a property to sell in this area please contact Nick Stopard at Boardwalk on: 0117 9898 222.
