Why stay here ...

Our CL is set in the countryside on the fringes of Bristol, with far reaching views. Easy access via fenced and gated approach wellset off lane approach.

The site comprises 1.25 acres level, well drained grassland. Hardstandings and electrical hook-ups are available.

We welcome adults, children and pets. The Frome Valley Walkway is less than 200 yards from the CL - ideal for walkers and their dogs.

Cycle tracks are accessible close by. The site is an excellent base for exploring Bristol, the centre of which only a 15 minute drive away, an amazing city boasting many attractions such as the Clifton Suspension Bridge and dockside area.

We have both an annual Harbour Festival and world famous Balloon Fiesta. Badminton horse trials are 30 minutes drive away. The arts are well catered for with Bristol Old Vic, Colston Hall, Bristol Hippodrome etc. Bath is less than 30 minutes drive and again a city with many sites to visit.

Our CL is ideally suited as a "stopover" for guests travelling, in any direction as the M4/M5 interchange is close by.

We have several pubs locally providing good food. Less than a 10 minute walk takes you to The White Horse public house and restaurant which serves good food, and also adjacent an Oriental restaurant. There are also take-away outlets some of which deliver! A 10 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to the Golden Heart which offers fine dining.

Supermarkets are within a mile of the CL, or smaller shops such as excellent bakers and butchers in the local village of Winterbourne.

We are very close to Southmead Hospital and provide a good base for those wishing to visit family and friends or indeed, attend as patients themselves.We therefore have full A+E services within close proximity of the CL.

Perfect for Bristol

We stayed a couple of nights in May, while visiting family in Bristol, so close yet you could be miles away. The M4 fades to a slight hum and a walk up the road takes you into real country life. We shall be back.

Perfect!

We booked for 2 nights in February to visit family in Bristol. Usually stay at Baltic Wharf but you have to plan ahead and our newest grandsons birth not on schedule meant they were full as ever. However from the minute I spoke to Jenny I was pleased we could not get in the other site. Excellent directions around road works. We are a 7 metres coachbuilt and easy to get in and out. Super greeting and tea offered along with excellant information and tours of where we could get buses. Site is very relaxing...yes you can hear the m4 but it does not interfere with the pleasure. Site is well drained and not boggy despite a full day of rain. The only area which got a bit boggy is at the gate entrance as everyone treads the same path. No facilities which was fine for us. Good recycling and toilet emptying. We will definitely return.

What a welcome

We lost ourselves on route due to me being very tired, but Peter came out and met me guiding me in where Jenny met us with a pot of tea for me and a pot of coffee for my wife, should get a job teaching other CL owners how to meet and greet your guests, lovely site short grass and easy access to water and disposal points, the best greeting we've ever had in 30 years of caravanning, Thank you Peter and Jenny you made the long journey well worth it Andrew And Chris Sparkes

Great Site - Warm Welcome

From the minute we rang the owners could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We were advised of the roadworks and to follow the new directions on the website - directions were clear and easy to follow. On arrival we were offered a cup of tea (super lovely) - advise on our onward journey and amenities were pointed out. Great dog walks near by. 😀 Definelty one to revisit.

Nice Site - roadworks at present

This is a very nice and tidy site with very friendly owner who even offered us a cup of tea on arrival. It is very handy for access to Bristol. Unfortunately there are roadworks in the area which has necessitated the access route being changed and it is now very difficult to get to the site. The revised route requires navigating a very narrow single track steep hill, a very narrow bridge and a tight bend around a house at the end of the bridge. We were in a motorhome and just managed to get in but a fellow member with a caravan damaged his motor-mover on the access route. In addition there was constant road noise from the nearby motorway.

Comment from the Club:

The CL owner has been in touch as she wanted to reassure people visiting the site. The CL owners have worked closely with the local council who have been very helpful in providing additional, appropriate signage to reach Moorend to make it as easy as possible to access the site whilst the roadworks are in place. The bridge is 10 feet wide so caravanners and motorhomers should not experience any problems and tractors and delivery lorries are using the route without difficulty however if any visitors do have any concerns please feel free to contact the CL owner for advice and information regarding another route with a wider bridge. The road closures have also ensured that traffic in Moorend is now dramatically reduced.

If the wind is strong and from the south west you will hear the motorway however the CL owner hopes that their efforts to provide a pleasant and welcoming environment for the duration of people’s stay will be appreciated as they try really hard to ensure guests have the best possible time on their site.
