Jenny and Arthur's Winter Breaks
are recently home after a 5 night winter break at the above site. The
site is ideally situated being adjacent to the Floating Harbour at
Bristol with many amenities and places of interest close by, all
within easy walking, cycling or by small ferry from the site into the
centre of Bristol.
there is a catch, it is extremely difficult to get in as it is fully
booked for most of the time. Our advice is to ring the site direct as
although on line it appears to be fully booked they often have
pitches available due to cancellations or people not turning up.
we were there we cycled from the site directly on to the historic
floating harbour path passing by Brunel’s ss Great Britain where
it was originally launched from in 1843. The Maritime Musuem with
huge Cranes, and a free to enter museum the M Shed which is all
about Bristol, its history, places, people and their stories.
Harbour loop ride was a distance of 2.7 miles and is suitable for
all levels of ability. It would also make a very pleasant walk.
following day the sun was shining so we set off on another cycle ride
this time a bit more challenging! The River Avon to Pill cycle trail
a total distance of 12 miles. Leaving the site we had to negotiate
the ongoing roadworks before getting on to the Avon Gorge cycle path
but after that it was traffic free all the way to Pill. The track is
mostly flat with some short uphill and downhill bits but we both
found it fairly easy. There are frequent views of the river in the
gorge and the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
is our second visit to this site and we can highly recommend it for a
short visit. The site is under constant threat of closure and being
redeveloped as a primary school. If this does happen then the site
will be relocated not too far away but it will never have the
existing uniqueness of the present one.
