Hospital use of the site can be traced back to the 1920s, when Frenchay Park House was acquired by the Corporation of Bristol for use initially as a tuberculosis (TB) hospital for children.

During the second world war it was used as an army hospital for American troops and post-war was developed and expanded under the NHS. It even secured a visit from legendary crooner Frank Sinatra in 1953 – a fact reflected
in one of the street names at Redrow’s development, Sinatra Way!

Thriving community

Frenchay Park and Frenchay Gardens are located within a picturesque village that belies its proximity to Bristol city centre. Providing a fabulous backdrop to Redrow’s standout
development, the leafy village of Frenchay features a well used grassy common, a moor that’s owned by the National Trust and walks through the wooded River Frome valley.

Better by design

Frenchay Park and Frenchay Gardens combine Redrow’s Arts & Crafts inspired Heritage Collection with a range of bespoke homes displaying more contemporary elevations.

In addition a number of Redrow’s Heritage properties have been customised externally to create a blend between the two. This ensures that the homes sit seamlessly side-by-side in the landscaped environment.

We are in love with our new home. It is so great that we still live in a house that has character without the problems that come with a period building. We’ve also found Frenchay to be the ideal location for us and have found a real sense of community in the area. There’s a local pub close by and we have met many people walking our dog in the green areas nearby."
