How to find us

Grimsbury Road, near Baden Road, Kingswood, Bristol BS15 9SE.

From Kingswood, take the A420 Bristol – Chippenham Road. Turn onto the Avon Ring Road towards Bath/Brislington. At the first roundabout turn right up the hill. Turn right at the mini-roundabout, and Grimsbury Farm is on the right.

Parking

Parking is limited, as we are a very small site, so if the car park is full be prepared to return when we are less busy. If you choose to park out on the neighbouring residential roads, be respectful of our neighbours and do not block access drives, footways, or create pinch points that would make it difficult for larger vehicles or emergency services to get by.

Our gates open to the public at 9am.
