Since 3 years we walk here with a group of ladies twice a week. Ashton Court is a fantastic place for walking all year round. There are different enclosures where one can walk through and observe different sorts of deer. One can walk in the...More

A great place to safely walk the dog and see parts of the city in view alongside the fabulous historic house.

We went here for an orienteering event but I would go back just for a walk around the grounds. Beautiful open fields interspersed with small woodlands, and ponds. Great place to take a dog.

Fab afternoon out - not many facilities, but a great amble through the woods and fields. Perfect for dog walking. There's deer in a paddock too, which was a nice unexpected surprise to see.

Ok so the balloons are only once a year but take a walk in this beautiful park to soak up some fresh air, see the deer and let yourself think you're not really in the heart of a city. There's golf for those who want...More

Take the frequent shuttle bus service, but be prepared for a very long walk up hill once at the estate. Its a pity they don't run a mini train service to and fro, because this long walk stopped us from visiting a second time, shame...More

The balloon fiesta is ruined for drivers by extortionate £15 parking charges for nothing but a remote field accessed by a potholed track and immature unqualified marshals with no signs to the fiesta!! Considering alternative transport options could never cope with visitors this needs to...More

There is! We've got a pitch and play golf course up at the top - £6.75 per adult which is the biggest golf bargain in Bristol (we think). Open 7am - dusk. Equipment available to hire, café serving drinks and snacks plus... More
