Blaise Hamlet is a hamlet in north west Bristol, England, composed of a complex of small cottages around a green. They were built around 1811 for retired employees of Quaker banker and philanthropist John Scandrett Harford, who owned Blaise Castle House.

The hamlet was designed by John Nash, master of the Picturesque style. He had worked for Harford on other buildings.

The cottages are now owned by the National Trust. They are still occupied and not open to the public, but the ensemble may be viewed from the outside. All the cottages, and the sundial on the green (which is accessible to the public), are Grade I listed buildings.

Rose Cottage is now rented out by the National Trust as a holiday cottage.
