New Pooles Lodge is a delightful development of one and two bedroom retirement apartments located in the outer urban area in the north east of the city of Bristol.

Fishponds is an outer urban area in the northeast of the English city of Bristol. It is approximately 3 miles from Bristol city centre. It has two large Victorian era parks, Eastville Park and Vassell's Park. The River Frome runs through both parks, with the Frome Valley Walkway running along it. A restored mill can be found at Snuff Mills near the Vassells Park end of the river. It has retained its original waterwheel, which can still be seen and heard turning. Eastville Park has its own large boating lake, with central wildlife reserves.

The area of Fishponds was once covered by the Royal Forest of Kingswood. The forest was progressively reduced and developed over the centuries, with Fishponds first recorded as the "Newe Pooles" in 1610, and subsequently "Fish Ponds" by 1734. By the 17th century it was thriving village with numerous stone built cottages for miners and quarrymen who quarried for coal and pennant stone. The village grew up around the two pools formed from the old quarries, but both were filled in by 1839.

Fishponds is mainly residential through which two main bus routes pass. Housing is typically of the terraced Victorian variety.
The high street features amenities including a chemist, post office, opticians and supermarkets including a Coop and Sainsburys local. The vibrant town of Fishponds offers excellent transport links to Bristol, Kingswood and Staple Hill. There are plenty of shops and cafes within walking distance nearby, and the Eastgate Centre with a large Tescos is 10 minutes away by car.

Bristol City Centre is easily accessible by bus or car, and the M32 is 10 minutes away with links to the M4 and M5. Doctors' surgeries and dentists are all nearby, and there are many parks in the area in which to relax, such as Snuff Mills or Page Park.

New Pooles Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront, all apartments and communal areas have an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. A Careline integrated intruder alarm, secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.
