Backwell is a rural village in North Somerset, England. It has a population of 4,589 although it seems bigger as it spreads towards Nalisea. It is 7 miles (11.3 km) south west of Bristol, on the A370 to Weston-super-Mare. It includes the hamlets of Backwell Common, Backwell Green and Farleigh and the district of West Town.
For reference nearby are Nailsea, Flax Bourton, Yatton, Brockley and Barrow Gurney. And in many respects it is similar in many ways to these areas. What sets Backwell slightly above the rest are facilities and schools. Here you have everything within walking distance and this makes it more of a town feel rather than a village.
In terms of housing there is something for everyone here.
