Why stay here ...

Bristol City Council has informed us that they plan to redevelop the area where Baltic Wharf Club Site is located. Unfortunately they're not prepared to grant a new long term lease and instead have agreed to a short term lease while they plan the redevelopments. This lease started on 30th August 2018 for a term of three years, however both parties have the right to terminate the lease with six months' notice which can be served at any time.

We know Bristol is a very popular destination for our members and with this uncertainty over the current site we're continously investigating other options in the area.

Baltic Wharf Club Site is a waterside haven, located right in the heart of Bristol's beautifully re-developed dockland and linked by a convenient river ferry to the city centre with its lively shops and entertainments. 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. Should you be more inclined to see the sites on dry land, there are several open top sightseeing bus tours conveniently available adjacent to the site, with discounted tickets available for visitors between March and October.

Grteat Site - lots going on

Just returned from a 2 night stay (1st Sept 18). Great site for access to Bristol, where you can walk almost everywhere (especially with a dog). Lots going on the waterfront, so do not expect piece and quiet. try the Spitfire BBQ restaurant on the Quayside, great BBQ ribs. Pub right next door. There is talk that the council who own the site want to reclaim the land for housing as it is in a prime location. The club needs to fight this as it very rare to find a site so convenient to the tourist attractions of Bristol (or any city in the UK) especially for motorhomer's who like to walk into town. The popularity of this site pays testimony to what people want from the club.

Rude and abrupt

Came here as every1 says how fab it is, us, well we don't know why.. we turned up 20 mins early, to be greeted with your early you can't book in yet. Never ever has this happened to us, we looked around at what pitch we wod like to bide the time. Bang on 12 the 2 men opened the office,, we were asked oh you have looked about what pitch do you want, so we said an they went oh u can't av that it's for an awning so we then chose 1 against the wall/fence of the boating place next door.. bad move.. after setting van up we were given the key to open the gates, to be rudly told oh u av been here b4 you know what to do.. which we hadn't been b4. Then was told what we needed, we then went for a walk along the water into the town and had a nose then came back on the water taxi, to the cottage pub.. which we did have a pint and glass if wine,what a lovely place, the food looked amazing. We then went back to the caravan settled in for the night.. well if you like a lay on, no way 930 the noise from the boating place was horrendous.. so thoughts about goin here again well for the wharf itself yes but the site I'm not to sure... brecon knocks spots off this site,, sorry just felt the wardens couldn't be bothered, it's not like the site is huge and needed lots of looking after,, look after the guests more they should.. people find it hard to book this site or book so far in advance, I don't get it.. and we have been to a few sites now

A great stay again

Love this site, with its own secret gate to the river, keep fighting to keep it! The wardens are great and that included support from the relief wardens Annette and Robin Thornton. A great place to park up and leave the car if you want to. Several great ways to get around from walking, water boats and free community bus (which had friendly drivers and passengers). All topped by Saturday evening ballon flights with one so low you could see their faces, an excellent way to end the holiday.
