The History of CJ Hole Clifton
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    Founded in Clifton by Charles Joseph Hole in 1867, CJ Hole's main business was rent collection - which in the Victorian era was much more common than buying. As the years rolled by and the company was passed down to his sons, so the focus of the business changed towards the selling of property as well.

    CJ Hole continued to prosper and today is a major force within the highly competitive estate agency market in the South West. Their excellent reputation has helped CJ Hole to expand within Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire so that there are now many branches serving the area.

    Today, having sold property in three different centuries and as one of the oldest estate agents throughout Bristol, Somerset and Gloucestershire, CJ Hole is regarded as one of the most highly professional property firms in the region with a tradition of providing a first class service to its customers.

    CJ Hole are constantly looking to build upon their reputation which will ensure that it continues to be a major force within the market place.

    CJ Hole are proud of their long established links with other independently operated Estate Agents across the country. These links now total over 80 branches dedicated to providing their customers with the highest levels of service at both local, and national level.

    This network provides CJ Hole with referrals from all over the country, which creates an even larger database of high quality purchasers and tenants.

Testimonials from Landlords

  • Landlord Testimonial

    I would recommend CJ Hole to friends and relatives
    Mr E

    I first had dealings with CJ Hole when Howard Davis put my flat on the market for sale, but due to the subsequent downturn in the market, Howard recommended that I let my property instead, once I had made my decision Howard found a tenant within a week.

C J Hole, Cliftonbranch details

CJ Hole area profile.

Here in the Clifton office we cover a huge swathe of the city. Our office deals with property in Clifton, Redland, Kingsdown, Cotham, Sneyd Park and Stoke Bishop. We also look after the city centre, harbourside and Hotwells even reaching as far as North Somerset.

This part of Bristol is vibrant and thriving and it has seen some incredible changes over the years. Itís also where most people want to live.

CJ Hole was actually founded in Clifton three centuries ago by Mr Charles Joseph Hole himself. We pride ourselves on the fact that when many of the cityís beautiful Victorian villas were actually being built for the wealthy merchants Ė we were already in business. Over the years the company grew to cover a large part of the south west and establishes us as one of the oldest and most experienced names in the field.

Of course Bristol has changed dramatically since the mid 19th century. Thereís been enormous redevelopment and renaissance down in the docks area after a decline in the port industry. Many of the beautiful old buildings have had new life breathed into them and they sit alongside edgy, contemporary waterside apartments.

Bristol is now a bustling mix of medical, university, aerospace, computer and media industries, to name but a few. Families, students and professionals flock here from all over the country looking for a taste of what one of the most beautiful parts of the country has to offer. There are now almost half a million people living here.

Bristolís even been named the UKís most sustainable city because of its environmental performance and quality of life! Itís also, believe it or not, one of the warmest and sunniest places in the country.


If you are looking for it Ė we can probably find it for you. Do you want an apartment by the waterside or a conversion with lofty ceilings in a grand old Georgian mansion? Bristol is filled with beautiful architecture and elegant Victorian squares. We have everything from generous Bath stone family homes to the traditional Edwardian properties nearer the Downs.


Bristol is the largest city in the region and is amazingly served by shops, theatres and green spaces. Tourists and people in the South West come from miles away to use the sparkling new Cabot Circus shopping centre as well as Cribbs Causeway next to the M5. Take your pick from John Lewis to Ikea and even Harvey Nichols. Clifton village and most of the residential areas are also heaving with gorgeous delis and local boutiques and traders. If its culture you want then look no further than the Bristol Museum, the Royal West of England Academy, the Hippodrome and the SS Great Britain, to name but a few. Bristol really is a Mecca and outside London Ė we think itís unbeatable for culture and nightlife. Our world famous guerrilla artist Banksy drew thousands of people to Clifton last year with his impromptu exhibition.

Itís also a city thatís kept as much of its green space as possible. The Downs which are circled by Clifton, Stoke Bishop and Redland are used by almost everyone in Bristol. They are a place to walk, jog, or barbecue and relax. The beautiful Ashton Court Estate, Blaise Castle and Leigh Woods are also all within easy reach and the perfect place for a stomp or a bike ride. Thereís even Bristol Zoo right in the middle of Clifton!

Education and Health

The City is of course home to one of the most prestigious ďredbrickĒ universities in the country. There are 23,000 students at Bristol University. We also have the University of the West of England, two further education colleges and three Theology colleges.

This bit of Bristol has the best schools in the city and thereís a lot of choice. In total there are 129 infant, junior and primary schools and 17 secondary schools. We also have the country's second highest concentration of independent schools like Clifton College and Badminton. Weíre just pipped to the post by one exclusive corner of north London in that respect.


We are 105 miles west of London and 24 miles east of Cardiff and we couldnít have better links to the rest of the country .The trains out of Temple Meads and Parkway are frequent and fantastic and thereís an enormous bus and coach station in the heart of the city. The M5, M4 and M32 are just minutes from the centre but if you work in Bristol then getting around on foot or bike is being made easier and easier. We were even named ď Englandís first Cycling CityĒ two years ago. Bristol international airport is also on the doorstep- you can fly direct to 112 destinations across 29 different countries, from Paris, to Scotland and New York to the Carribean.

Why Bristol?

Most people who come to Bristol donít want to leave. Itís a gateway to the beautiful south west and all that Devon and Cornwall have to offer. The same goes for the short trip over the bridge to glorious Wales and all those Pembrokeshire beaches. And as thousands of people will attest Ė it is possible to commute back to London or Birmingham and yet enjoy the quality of life that only Bristol can offer. Culturally itís amazing. The sports facilities are fantastic- and we even have two football teams! Itís a glorious city with a rich and amazing history and a bright future.

Here at CJ Hole -we can help you find a home here.
