Hi

Does anyone know of a campsite in the Bristol area - or at least fairly close to trains that serve Bristol Temple Meads?

The criteria is for an RV (34 footer) with 16 amp hook up ideally. Facilities not essential on site.

The CC site at Baltic Wharf is amazingly situated, right on the docks - not sure if you'd get a 34ft RV on it though, the site roads are quite tight. Maybe ring and ask?

Their Max length is 10.1 m so you are just OK. I would ring in advance as it is a tight site.
There is a bus from just outside the site that passes the railway station.
Excellent site.

The bus goes from just outside the gates on the "land" side. I think that there is a bus all the year round but in season there are more. It is a circular route so you can get on where you get off and there is no clockwise service. The water bus goes from near the gate on the "river" side but is more expensive and less frequent. There is a big pub next door.

Is that the one next door to a pub and a river taxi to the city nearby? Looking to use it later in the year out of season.
Book it now, Derek. Because it is a little oasis in the city and with not much competition around, it is a devil of a job to get on at short notice.

Hi Russell,

I used to live opposite the Baltic Wharf CC site. My experience of the local First Bus service was that it was usually quicker to walk to the Centre than wait for the bus. :(

On a fine day like today the Ferry journey into the centre is delightful. I often used it to commute. There is a landing stage next door to the Baltic Wharf site, by the Cottage pub. You can take the Ferry from there all the way to Temple Meads railway station. Much nicer then the bus, if you have the time. :D

Here's a useful link for your Bristol transport needs, including the bus and ferry timetables and routes.

Cheers,

We struck really lucky last year - got in on the day because of cancellations, and that was on May Day Bank Holiday weekend! Just rang as we were heading up the M5.

I think we may have been very lucky :wink:

We really enjoyed it though.

We were there last weekend, having booked months ago, excellent site ideal for Bristol centre. The trouble is some people block book on the first day that the caravan club opens for bookings, as they don't need to leave a deposit they decide at short notice whether to go or not, knowing they won't be out of pocket if they don't bother. You can try phoning just in case.
