Live Work Belong

Bohemian, laid back and hip are three words frequently associated with the central Bristol area of Montpelier; a description that’s reflected in the local street artworks and colourful frontages of the historic Victorian and Georgian terraces that line the streets.

It is in Montpelier that Griffon Homes are developing Picton Lofts. This eco-led development has just fourteen 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and six work space units on Picton Lane in the heart of Montpelier.  Picton Lane offers a great choice of apartments, almost all with garden or outside space, and a top specification throughout.  Residents will also enjoy a communal garden and Help to Buy is available on the scheme.

Located between Picton Street and Bath Buildings, the area is dotted with independent shops, relaxed cafes, great bistros and local pubs – serving up craft beers and chilled music. The long established Italian deli Licata is also on Picton Street along with Yogasara, Oowee Diner, Thali Café and Bianchis.  Herbert’s Bakery, another great Bristol institution is also just around the corner.

Walk through the ‘Rainbow Wall’ and you’ll find yourself in Montpelier Park which is a well-loved community hub with children’s play equipment and a leafy canopy for whiling away a warm summer afternoon.


With Montpelier’s reputation for great creative co-working spaces you may find yourself working close to home. Wherever you work, Picton Lofts is a great place to start from. It is within walking distance to the University, BRI Hospital, Cabot Circus, Temple Quay and the wider central Bristol area. If you need to travel, take a train from Montpelier’s own station straight to Bristol Temple Meads station. With Bristol Bus and Coach Station – again in walking distance – all forms of public transport are pretty much on your doorstep.


A “bohemian vibe and strong community spirit” is how Destination Bristol describes Montpelier. It’s also part of a wider community that takes in Gloucester Road and Stokes Croft where lively arts & theatre venues reflect the independent spirit of the area. It’s little wonder that Montpelier is as popular with young professionals as it is with families; in fact it’s one of Bristol’s top places to live.
