Audley Redwood

Audley Redwood is a luxury retirement village set within acres of landscaped parkland and near Bristol. Just minutes from historic Clifton and the spectacular North Somerset coast, there are breathtaking scenes, right on your doorstep. Surrounded by beautiful green landscape, Audley Redwood comprises 106 retirement apartments and 20 cottages, all built to perfectly complement the local Georgian architecture, and offering exquisite retirement living.

Local area

A 20-minute walk from Audley Redwood is the beautiful village of Failand, a charming place with a church, an observatory, a pub and village hall. The village consists of two separate parts: the new village - Failand, and the quaint old village of Lower Failand where it all started from. There's also a bus service (X6) running every hour between Failand and Bristol city centre which stops just one street away from Audley Redwood.

Clifton

Between the pretty village of Failand and the vibrant hub of Bristol, lies picturesque Clifton, home to Brunel’s famous suspension bridge. The entire area boasts beautiful walks and there are many independent boutiques within the famous Clifton Arcade. It is a perfect place for relaxed and chic retirement living.

Bustling Bristol

Bristol itself is a bustling city, built around the river Avon with a fantastic choice of shops, restaurants and museums, including the SS Great Britain (the largest passenger ship in the world from 1845-1854), and the world famous Bristol Old Vic theatre.

Other local attractions include Bristol Zoo, the Observatory – a historic windmill with an observation tower offering picturesque views – and, for an alternative day out, why not try St Aldams 'pick your own' farm?

Major local events

A highlight of the events calendar is the annual International Balloon Fiesta, the largest in Europe. Every August, the city welcomes teams from the UK and the world who bring their hot air balloons to the site of Ashton Court and participate in mass ascents where as many as 100 balloons launch at a time. It is a truly fantastic spectacle and it is well worth getting to know the local hotspots to catch the best views as the balloons rise over the city.

Another summer highlight is the annual Bristol Harbour Festival that celebrates the city’s maritime heritage and the importance of Bristol’s docks and harbour.
