Baltic Wharf Campsite

Sunday 10 February

A few days at one of our favourite city campsites. Situated at Bristols historic floating harbour there is so much to see and do. The site has direct access onto a walkway /cycle path around the harbour or into the city. Close by are museums historic ships and buildings and a good choice of places to eat. There are a number of cycle routes to places of interest from the site and ferries  ply up and down and around the harbour easy for hopping on and off to get into the city.

We did two cycle rides from the campsite. The first with friends to Aston Court Park and on to Nailsea. An interesting mix of cycle routes through parkland housing estates farmland villages and finally to Nailsea. An easy mostly flat route of 18miles..

The second one was a bit more adventureous! We’ve cycled the 15mile Ashton-Pill Loop several times it’s route along the length of the River Avon to Pill across the Avon Road bridge and back along the Bristol Portway. This time we added the Blaise Castle loop. We had a very rough¬† Muddy ride to Pill and steep busy roads to Blaise. Disappointingly we couldn’t get to the castle as lots of steps. However the grounds were nice and the woodland tracks were pretty. We eventually found our way back to the campsite. We had cycled 19 miles but felt like a lot more!
