Over the mountains and through the woods
Bristol Forest School’s main site is at Leigh Court Farm in a private woodland (not in Leigh Woods public woodland).
Leigh Court Farm
How to Find Us:
Bristol Forest School is only available to visit during scheduled forest school sessions – it is not available for private visits, even by current forest school children.
If you are booked on a session, please follow the A369 out of Bristol through Abbots Leigh. Go past the George Pub, past the bus shelter and turn right at the big green sign for Leigh Court (this is on the left coming up the hill if arriving from Portishead). Our car park is 50m down this drive, the first turning on the left opposite Brackenwood Plant Centre – signposted Leigh Court Farm Visitors.
Our woodland entrance is then accessible on foot, further down the drive – enter the woods through our willow archway, next to our sign for Bristol Forest School.
Please note, BFS has two car parks – you will be told which to park in for your group. For weekend parties, please follow your invitation instructions for directions to our second car park (continue straight ahead over four speed-bumps, straight ahead when road splits and turn left at the no entry signs).
Our second site is at the North Somerset Showground. To access take the A370 out of Bristol, turn left onto the B3130, then turn left to Flax Bourton. Continue straight over two mini roundabouts down the hill and past the bottom of Belmont Hill. The entrance gate is on the left just before the 40mph road sign. Staff will meet coaches at the gate.
