Stockwood Open Space


Stockwood Open Space consists of old farmland and is a blend of old meadows with hedges and woodlands. Is also provides panoramic views of South Bristol. Most of the area consists of grassland and during the summer flowers like cowslip, dyer's greenweed and bird's-foot trefoil create a beautiful yellow field.

However other flowers such as bluebell, yellow archangel and the rare Bath asparagus grow here too. Butterflies can be seen in this area including the marbled white, large skipper and meadow brown. The hedges provide good places for bird to nest and the ponds are home to frogs, toads and newts.

This nature reserve is ideal for a family day out and enjoying the beautiful butterflies. The best time to visit is April till July but it is open at all times. There are foot- and cycle paths that run through the site and provide access for wheelchair users, but there are some slopes which can be slippery when wet. Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on lead. You can park your car at the end of Stockwood Road in the layby, just before the sharp left turn into The Coots. By car you will reach Stockwood in about 25 minutes when leaving from the city centre. By bus it will take approximately 45 minutes. Entry to this nature reserve is free of charge!

The above times should be used as an indicator during the recovery phase from the global pandemic.
