Love this place. Plenty of woodland to explore, as well as open space that's perfect for activities, dog walking and for children to burn off steam, as well as picnics. Plenty of wild garlic in the wooded section where the frisbee golf is, when it's in season, and the mansion house is beautiful too. The car parks are very reasonably priced (the Church Lodge car park often has plenty of space, and under £2 a day is pretty good). Worth a visit if you're looking for somewhere to stretch your legs!

Always a great place to come. For family meets ups, picnics with friends, dog walks, bike rides. Even parties at the mansion.. plus all the festivals that are held here. Parking is reasonable.....expanse is large. Coffee is great!

Great mixture of woodland, deer parks with sculpture and fine historic buildings for good measure. Quite an experience eating lunch in the former stables - see how the other horses lived. Particularly loved Hugo Farmer's Freedom of Speech.

Wonderful garden area and cafe. Wider grounds are vast with loads to explore. Lots of open spaces and forest trails. Deer were lovely to see up close. Sadly you have to pay to park there now. Also all the ticket machines were out of use, and it was more expensive to pay online. Bristol city council is a joke.

Beautiful grounds to walk through. Plentiful parking. Woods and meadows and cultivated gardens. Great charactered trees to find. Lovely little café with gendered toilets that don't require a purchase. Food is nice (menu from August 2022 in photos). Deer grounds do contain ticks though, so wear long trousers or stick to the short grass (or both).
