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 March 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 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 while caravanning in Bristol, there are several open top sightseeing bus tours conveniently available adjacent to the site, with discounted tickets available for visitors between March and October.
