Why stay here ...

Many members will be aware that Bristol City Council informed us several years ago of plans to redevelop the area where Baltic Wharf Club Site is located. Fortunately we have been able to continue running the site on a renewable short term lease while they plan the redevelopments.

The plans for the redevelopment are now progressing at pace between the Council and the developers which means that notice could be served at any time, giving the Club 6 months before having to vacate the site.

If this happens, we will ensure that all affected members are notified in writing of the requirement to cancel their bookings, giving as much notice as possible to enable them to secure pitches elsewhere.

We are accepting bookings until the end of April 2021.

We are still continuing our search for an alternative location in the Bristol area as we know how popular this location is for our members.

 

Baltic Wharf Club Site is a waterside haven, located right in the heart of Bristol's beautifully re-developed dockland and close to the city centre with its lively shops and entertainment. For families staying at the caravan site, great attractions include the Zoo and Downs Park: a cosy and safe place for young children to play and also an ideal picnic spot.

Many excellent cycle paths can be easily accessed from Baltic Wharf Club Site, including the Bristol to Bath path if you are feeling particularly energetic and adventurous. A selection of boat trips are available from the caravan park, which makes for an excellent way to take in some of the most scenic views in this part of the county.

Walking notes:

A great stroll directly from site would take you around the harbour passing the narrowboat marina, S.S.Great Britain and the M Shed Museum. Continue along into the restaurant area of Bristol with a return along the opposite side of the harbour through Underfall Boat Yard.

Check out our ViewRanger walk.

Wet Weekend

Enjoyed a very wet 4 nights at Baltic Wharf. The journey in was a bit of a nightmare due to the roadworks in Bristol, and a bit tight getting a 7.5 metre motorhome through the entrance due to the roadworks. Had a couple of nice meals and drinks at The Cottage pub, and can recommend Sunday lunch. Great location for getting into Bristol. We caught the bus to the aerospace museum in Filton and enjoyed a Nando’s and a trip to the cinema in Cabot Circus. The only slight let down was the shower block, waiting outside, only to find that folks had walked off with the rubber bands or left them inside once they’d finished, it’s not rocket science so we just ended up using our own shower. Have visited the site a few times before and visited SS Great Britain, the zoo and Clifton etc. Anyway in these difficult times, just nice to get away !!!!!!

Best site.

I love Baltic Wharf, so sorry it will be closing a very sad loss to the network. If you can get there before it closes please do. Very compact site with great facilities close to major attractions in Bristol (you can see Clifton Suspension Bridge and walk to SS Great Britain). The only downside is the road outside which is very busy, but once set up, not a problem.

Another fantastic stay at Baltic Wharf, the wardens Matt Gemma and not to forget Doris the dog, are excellent Wardens, they cannot do enough for you, the site is immaculate, the toilets and showers are spotless, so Covid friendly, I wish all the other sites we have been to were as clean and friendly as this one, cannot wait to go back again, the only Wardens I know that are on the go cleaning and keeping things so friendly and safe. Thank you Matt and Gemma for another great stay.

Macey’s stay at Baltic Wharf

First visit to Bristol Baltic Wharf site and loved it. Fantastic location. Back gate to the site was like a magic door. Site was spotless. Wardens Matt and Gemma couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Site was very Covid secure and we felt very safe. We will certainly return. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
