The Polygon

The Polygon


The Polygon is a Georgian terrace of twelve colourfully painted houses, situated on the slope between Hotwells and Clifton. The houses can only be accessed by a footpath at the front, so the terrace garden feels secluded and more like a village paradise than a space close to the city centre.


Each house has a small front garden, with a communal garden beyond. For many years this was neglected but recently residents have worked together to re-design and cultivate the garden, creating a compost area, a firepit, a mini-meadow, a wild patch under the tulip tree and a sunny sitting area accessed by a path built from reclaimed stone.
