Aldwick Estate is a working farm and delightful wedding / conference venue with 11 acres of vines across 2 vineyards.

Tradition and Innovation

Home to the same family for five generations, Aldwick Court Farm has upheld a family custom of applying innovative solutions to changing and uncertain conditions. Diversification in the 21st century increasingly becomes critical to survival. The development of Aldwick’s two vineyards stands testament to this.

Established in 2008

In 2008, the late Chris Watts broke ground in approximately two acres of Homefield for his first vineyard. Things have grown and evolved since then, with more land under vine and the varieties of grape revisited to make best use of the conditions.

The estate is now under the stewardship of Chris’s sister Sandy Luck, who has created a delightfully secluded spot that is nevertheless very close to both the centre of Bristol and to rural Somerset.

A Special Wedding Venue

The venue comprises two adjacent stone barns, linked by the main reception; behind this invitingly lies the brick-walled Cellar Bar. Architectural features of the bygone dairy Old Barn resonate in the 2013 New Barn. Both are licensed for civil Wedding ceremonies. Exclusive use of the venue allows considerable scope to designate and decorate the rooms according to individual taste and requirement.

Aldwick Estate Wines

Still and sparkling wines are produced which are available for consumption at weddings, sold at the cellar door and at the nearby Lye Cross Farm Shop (useful particularly on Saturdays, when the vineyard cannot offer purchase and tastings due to weddings).

Aldwick Estate is off the A38 about 12 miles south west of Bristol.

Directions from Bristol:

This lane is called Cowslip Green Lane and is just past the “Alvis Bros” Lye Cross Farm Shop on the left. Travel approximately 2 miles down the country lane until you reach the end (a T Junction). Turn left and Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyard is immediately on the right.

Directions from M5 Southbound:
Leave the M5 at Junction 18 “Avonmouth”. Leave Bristol on the A38 Southbound past Bristol Airport to Redhill. Go down the hill, take the left turn indicated by the large brown sign marked “Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyard”. This lane is called Cowslip Green Lane and is just past the “Alvis Bros” Lye Cross Farm Shop on the left. Travel approx. 2 miles down the country lane until you reach the end (a T Junction). Turn left and Aldwick Estate is immediately on the right.

Directions from M5 Northbound:
Leave the M5 at Junction 22. Follow signs to A38 & Bristol Airport. Continue through Churchill over main traffic lights and on for 4 miles. Just past the Holiday Inn take the right turning indicated by the large brown sign marked “Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyard”. This lane is called Cowslip Green Lane and is just past the “Alvis Bros” Lye Cross Farm Shop on the left. Travel approx. 2 miles down the country lane until you reach the end (a T Junction). Turn left and Aldwick Estate is immediately on the right.

Please Note: When entering the postcode into most Sat Navs it will bring you down Cowslip Green from the A38. You will pass the driveway to a house called ‘Aldwick Court’ This is not where you need to be! Your Sat Nav will announce you have arrived at your destination before you reach the end of the road. (outside a house called Woodlands) This is not the right place either!

Please continue to the end of the road, a T junction, and turn left. Aldwick Estate is then on your right hand side. Please contact the office on 01934 864404 for large vehicle access.

The nearest train station is Bristol Temple Meads which has a frequent service to and from London Paddington.

There is a taxi rank outside the front of the station.
