Lower Knowle Farm has been the home of Co-housing Bristol since 2009, and the four directors of the scheme who live there have been working to make this happen for far longer.

We are currently close to completing the construction of several houses (built to near passivhaus standards) around the farmhouse with an expected completion date of spring/early summer 2022. We are not currently looking for new members.

The shared facilities for the cohousing project are in the farmhouse along with a number of rooms which are rented out.

Some things you need to know...


Lower Knowle Farm is a farm in name only, the land was sold off years ago and the 0.9 acre site is surrounded by typical modern housing. There are no farm animals and only a small area for vegetable gardens,

We are a small group, and with a diverse range of ages from 4 years to 67 years old.
