Period splendour and elevated views over Wrington Vale.
Piercehay sits on the edge of the village of Wrington and within a conservation area. Situated on the lower slopes of Wrington Hill and with outstanding views with the church tower in the foreground and the backdrop of the Mendips, Wrington itself has a very strong community with its own church, post office store, garage and pubs. Bristol is easily accessible with a wide variety of amenities and a number of highly regarded schools. There is also good ease of access to Wells Cathedral School, Sidcot and Millfield. For sporting pursuits there are golf courses and many bridle ways over the adjacent land. For the commuter the A370 provides links to Bristol's commercial centre and the M5. Direct rail travel to London is available from Nailsea and Backwell station approximately 6.6 miles distant and Bristol Airport approximately 3.8 miles distant has flights to many European and some long haul destinations.
