Cotham is in the heart of Bristol, conveniently close to everything, but away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. It borders Redland, Kingsdown, and The Arches (where Gloucester Road becomes Cheltenham Road), and Montpelier is just across the way.
It’s an elevated, leafy, grand area with a mix of Georgian and Victorian two, three and four-storey terraced houses and villas. Many of these have been converted into flats. Like neighbouring Redland, it has a great mix of families, professionals and students.
Cotham has its own unique identity – it’s on the doorstep of popular Gloucester Road, but Cotham Hill and Whiteladies Road are also a hop away. It has an excellent mix of cafes, restaurants and independent shops.
The city centre is easily walkable. Redland and Montpelier stations are also nearby. Temple Meads is a cycle away and the M32 is (relatively) easily accessed by car.
