Southwood Avenue is a quiet residential road within Coombe Dingle, a desirable suburb of North West Bristol. The area is locally renowned for its rural feel, stemming from the low volumes of traffic, green outlook and various footpaths onto the 650 acres of woodland and grass at the Blaise Castle Estate. The estate is home to Blaise Castle itself, originally dating to 1766 and the Blaise Castle House, built around 30 years later for wealthy merchants of the time. Although the area feels rural, it is in fact far better connected than many other areas of Bristol. Residents of this part of BS9 benefit from a short journey to the shops and amenities of Westbury-on-Trym, Henleaze and Shirehampton. Commuters in to Bristol can travel by bus, car, train or bike into Clifton or Bristol City Centre, whilst this part of Bristol is well served by the M5 motorway connecting to the nearby M4.
