Why stay here ...
The Club has been operating Baltic Wharf campsite for several years on a renewable, short term lease while the Council planned for redevelopment of the site into up to 190 new homes.
Sadly, notice has now been served to us, which means that we will be required to vacate Baltic Wharf by 31 May 2021. However, pitches at the campsite are still on sale for arrivals up to 16 May 2021, departing no later than 12pm, 17 May.
In 2017, we purchased a new location, just one mile away near Ashton Court, and we recently received a positive response from the local planning office. There are still a number of hurdles for us to get through before planning consent is granted, but we are hopeful that this new location will be approved for development into a touring site soon. We will, of course, make sure we keep you up-to-date with the latest news about this potential new campsite.
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.
