    Just been admiring your photos of Bristol balloon festival. We had intended going in Aug. And looking for where we can stay. The CC site nearby is, predictably, fully booked so any other suggestions might be worth checking.

    Hi Wyn, the Motor Caravanners Club hold a rally at the Bristol Baloon Fiesta every year. It is situated right next to the park where the Fiesta is held. No need to book, the cost is £7 per unit per night. You will however have to be members of the club in order to attend, we attend their rallies throughout the UK and membership is worthwhile in our opinion.

    Brisey.

    Apologies for my delay in responding, I'm here at Uttoxeter and strangely there is a bit of partying going on.......

    As has been said, best place is the Motor Caravan Club rally run by the Avon Group, right opposite and if it is muddy, they are well prepared to get you sorted out. The park and ride is only minutes away, so a trip into Bristol is easy (but don't do it on the Saturday as traffic is bad).

    I'll put some more photos up when we return!

    Hi, We went this year 2012, with the motorcaravanners club in field opposite ,literally other side of the road, the field this year was a bit sticky with quite long grass but no problems, the people at Avon group were very friendly, Balloon festival was very good ,weather was also good surprisingly. We have been several times over the last 20 years but this year there wasn't quite so many of the odd / different shaped balloons mostly round ones. You will definitely enjoy if and when you go , amazingly free festival .
