“Simply a delight !”

A historical oasis of heritage. Tranquil with excellent cream tea. Dog friendly as well. After decades of neglect it's good to see the grounds being taken care of.

“This place should be treasured”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

What a wonderful place, calm and tranquil. I am so glad that I accepted an invitation to visit with a friend who is tracing his family tree.
I will visit again soon and take more time to look around so nice to be able to have a coffee during a visit.
Visit soon, not at all morbid or sad in fact quite joyful.

great place to wander round for a few hours alone or with a family. Free entry and has a cafe. A little bit of tranquility not far from the heart of Bristol.

“lest we forget....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

My ancestors are buried here, and it is a fine and fitting place. Go there for the tranquility, the atmosphere, and the history. A monument well worth preserving.

“a hidden jewel of bristol”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

what a beautiful place saved from the hands of a developer and free for anyone to visit. A place of tranquility near a busy road a place for wildlife amongst the graves of many famous bristolians and the Indian social reformer Raja ~R~oy Lots of trails a exhibition space and a lovely little gift shop. A very good cafe where you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet and until September there is a very good grommet. a must to visit whilst in Bristol
