Henbury is a district that neighbours affluent Westbury-on-Trym. This area features a variety of property types, including social housing estates dating from the 1950s, ambling country lanes lined with country homes, and pleasant residential streets, all backdropped by the dense greenery of the famous Blaise Castle Estate, and gives itself over to the stunning Henbury Golf Course.

Henbury is largely populated by pensioners and young families living in this historic area. ts Village Hall is a Grade II listed building that was previously a school. The Henbury Lodge Hotel dates back to 1600, while the Church of St Mary the Virgin is even older, with the tower tracing its roots all the way back to the early 13th century.

Families considering moving to the area will be interested in the good schools that Henbury boasts, and for wide-open spaces, you really cannot do much better than the Greenhill Plantation and grounds of the Blaise Estate – think rivers, woods, green meadows and designated play areas and you’re in contented kids/parents heaven. For commuters, the easy access to the M5 and city centre is a boon, and while Henbury may not have the widest choice of bars and restaurants for younger couples to choose from, it’s only a short drive to Westbury-on-Trym and Clifton, and Cribbs Causeway is always a convenient option for retail therapy, grocery shopping, going to the cinema and dining out.

Henbury is an area that is defined by its diversity. For every country style lane there’s a bustling residential street; for every expanse of greenery there’s a busy road; for every gated mansion there’s a high-rise tower, and for every age group there’s something to suit.
