Kift Lodge, Hanham


Overlooking the beautiful Hanham common, with its summer cricket and children’s playground, Kift Lodge lets you enjoy countryside views with the advantages of city life nearby.

Kift Lodge is a light, spacious house, purpose-built by Abbeyfield after the former house and land was generously gifted to us by the late, Mr Kift. There are beautiful landscaped gardens with raised beds, which you are welcome to help us tend; and arbours where you can sit and relax. The fabulous day room for communal dining and socialising, is the hub of the house – a great place to make new friends and enjoy activities.

All our Abbeyfield houses are run by our experienced, friendly team members. You’ll get to know our fantastic chefs, and Richard, our very helpful handyman. And of course, our team members are always on hand should you need extra help, or fancy a chat over a cup of tea.

The house offers 20 spacious and comfortable studio and one-bedroom flats, with gas central heating, en suite facilities, and kitchenettes. Flats are rented unfurnished for you to decorate and style with your own belongings. We guarantee you’ll soon feel right at home.

In The Area

Situated in a fantastic location just 5 miles outside Bristol city centre, the house is set back from the road with its own, gated driveway. A variety of local amenities are close by, and Hanham High Street just a walk away. Directly outside the entrance is a bus stop which takes you into neighbouring Keynsham. In the opposite direction Bristol city centre is just a short ride away, where you can take advantage of the fabulous shops and restaurants. Inside the house you can enjoy regular social activities including quiz and film nights; keep fit; craft activities; and visiting singers.
