The Stables: View down the field

General

  • Friendly and scenic basic site between Bristol and Bath
  • Edged by the 13-mile car-free Bristol and Bath Railway Path
  • Stroll along the banks of the Avon to local pubs serving food

Bed down between Bristol and Bath (half an hour's drive from each) with a budget-friendly stint at The Stables – trips here are top for taking in two of south-western England’s most stellar cities and their scenic surrounds.

This simple site set on 10 green acres of land – some of which hosts a herd of alpacas – is close to walking trails including the 13-mile Bristol and Bath Railway Path, which runs alongside the end of the pitching field.

The car-free route between these cities follows the River Avon and passes by pubs serving food and drinks with views out over the water. Wild swimming is also possible at certain spots enroute (just make sure to sip on a Somerset cider after rather than before your dip…).

A sports and social club is behind the site for more drinks, and shops are in Keynsham, along the local bus route (a five-minute drive away).

The main top spots to sightsee are in Bath and Bristol – don’t miss the former’s Roman architecture and the latter’s graffiti art – but other excellent places are within driving distance too, like the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (20 minutes) and Cheddar Gorge in the Mendip Hills (40 minutes).

All questions on where to roam are welcome at the park: the owners are laidback and friendly, wanting guests to really get to know this pretty area.

The site's facilities are basic (it’s got two portaloos, drinking water and chemical disposal), which is reflected in the budget-friendly pitch price, and it welcomes well-behaved dogs as long as they're kept on leads around the grounds.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

    Simple, basic site. Plenty of space. Loved the centre of the field being left as hay meadow. Proximity to Railway Path is a bonus. Good bus service to Bristol and long, all-day walk to/from Bath (bus also available).

    The field was beautiful and clean, felt very safe. Pam was so welcoming, we were shown her alpacas which my boys and I loved.
    Not a far drive from the city, with great walks across the meadows along the river Avon.
    We would definitely recommend.

    Very quiet and well spaced, lovely owners, clean portaloos, level ground.

    Disliked: 

    I wouldn't say we disliked anything because we knew what we were getting but the only thing letting the site down it the lack washing facilities. There's portable toilets and taps. No where to wash your face or brush your teeth etc. We only went for 2 nights and generally prefer the wilder camp sites so it was perfect for us.

    Lovely site! Pam sent clear instructions on where the site was, code for the gate, etc. She came to meet us after we had settled in. Dog friendly, very clean, big area for each pitch, toilets clean and well stocked with loo rolls, sanitiser, hand wash, etc! Water and recycling area.

    Great place to come, good walks, pubs locally, etc. 100% recommend this site. Very reasonable price! We are very happy and will be returning for sure!

Local attractions

The Avon Valley Adventure Wildlife Park (15 minutes) is a prime pick for combining ambles with animal attractions – this kid-friendly spot is a farm and petting zoo with a playground, small train, go-karts and riverside roams.

If your watery walks here have you itching to brave bigger trails, join the Monarch’s Way long-distance route, running 615 miles from Worcester to Brighton, from Bristol (25 minutes). Make sure to check out Cheddar Gorge (40 minutes) on wanders from the park as well and seek out subterranean spots to explore like the family-friendly Wookey Hole cave (40 minutes).
