Blaise Castle House was built in 1796-98 for John Harford, a wealthy Bristol merchant and banker.  Inside some of the original ornamentation remains, such as casts of Classical and Neo-Classical sculptures and reliefs, including a set cast from the parthenon marbles.

While the house was being built the grounds were laid out by Humphry Repton (1752-1818) a leading landscape gardener, and the Regency architect John Nash added of the dairy and the conservatory.
