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.

    Lovely campsite and very quiet except for my girls making a din. I’m planning on returning again. Showers & toilets were basic but did the job. If you’re looking for a hotel bathroom book a hotel, otherwise just accept it for what it is. Campfires are allowed too and there’s nothing quite like laying under the clear stars with a little fire. Next time I come I’ll bring my fishing rods too 👌🏼

Directions


Take the A431 from Bristol or Bath. In the village of Bitton turn left from Bristol or right from Bath onto Golden Valley Lane. The site is 3/4 of a mile along Golden Valley Lane and the entrance is on your right; there is a blue sign on either side of the gate saying Boyd Valley Lake. Drive up and the pitching area is on your left.

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).
