Fishing swim

General

  • Peaceful site with fishing lake and rod hire available
  • Easily accessible, half a mile from the A431 between Bath and Bristol
  • Village shop and pub within walking distance

Bath or Bristol? Have easy access to both at Boyd Valley Lake, set down a quiet country lane half a mile from the A431 between both cities.

This is a nifty base for city and countryside days: it’s just under eight miles from here to both Bristol and Bath, and the site’s Greater Bristol setting is in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for gentle strolls and nature spotting. For day trips, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, Cheltenham and Gloucester are all within an hour’s drive and mighty Stonehenge within an hour and 10 minutes.

In between all that, retreat for peaceful days on site at the one and three quarter-acre fishing lake suitable for all abilities of angler; hire a rod from the Boyd Valley Lake team to try your luck landing carp, bream, barbel and many more slippery species. There’s plenty of space around these green grounds for wanders – and picnics – too.

The village shop and local pub are within walking distance, and two garden centres and coffee shops are within a mile.

Back to nature with a fantastic atmosphere10/27/2020

  • Liked: 

    Very relaxed site, felt very at one with nature, the owner gives a warm welcome and offered us various pitches to camp at.
    Toilet's & shower's was great to have.
    The lakes were nice to have, we pitched right next to one and walked around the other one a few times in the morning.
    Its a fabulous location too,the fire pits were a great hit.
    Lovely wild life noises during the evening and lots of nocturnal scurrying and flying to watch, minimal light pollution so the stars at night were AMAZING.

    Disliked: 

    The British weather for the school half term as per normal never ceased to disappoint you :-)

    Not being a country type I got very lost with google maps finding the site returning in the evening, that's not a complaint to the camp site just something to note when you are coming back in the dark after a days excursions.

    Nice relaxed site with 2 fishing pond to wander around. Hire of a firepit one night was great fun and allowed us to stay outside on a cold evening.
    Due to Covid-19 we didn't use the shower or toilet facilities.

Great value for money. Friendly and tranquil.09/22/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomKay M.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Primitive grass tent or trailer tent site
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Peace and quiet. The separate fields made it feel more isolated. The location. Very rural, surrounded by nature but not far from suburban areas and convenient for Bristol. The friendliness! Two “oddballs” were accepted and welcomed. It is excellent value for money. We had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be back soon.

    Disliked: 

    The toilets blocked very easily. This campsite is a back to basics, budget campsite. There are no frills! INot really a dislike for me but may be for others- In my opinion, you get what you pay for. If you want posh facilities go somewhere else and pay more. It has all you need for a short stay.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Want to stay close to base on days you’re not out sightseeing in Bristol or Bath? Steam along to the Avon Valley Railway a mile and a half from the site for a vintage train ride on its three-mile run through peaceful countryside (check opening times before setting out as the railway is generally only open on weekends and during school holidays).

If you’d prefer to get about under your own steam, it’s a mile from Boyd Valley Lake to the Bristol to Bath cycle track, the 13-mile traffic free route between both cities. Opt to walk or cycle the path (access is provided for wheelchairs too), stopping off along the way to spot sculptures and old steam engines: the track is also an art trail and passes the steam engines at Bitton station.

Options further afield include Cheddar Gorge, Wells and Wookey Hole, all 50 minutes’ drive away, and the National Trust-managed Dyrham Park (15 minutes), Prior Park Landscape Garden (25 minutes), Lacock Abbey (35 minutes) and Tyntesfield Victorian house (40 minutes).
