Activities at Blaise


There is a local cycle route that covers the main driveway from Coombe Dingle to the House, which then connects to National Cycle route 4. We ask cyclists to look out for pedestrians and slow down/move to avoid accidents.

Dog Walking

Blaise is a great place to walk your dog, with big open spaces and rivers/ponds. So please make sure you and your four legged friend have fun. All we ask is please clean up afterwards and use the many dog waste bins provided.

Horse Riding

A two mile trail runs from Kings Weston Road car park to Kings Weston Down.


There is a Permanent Orienteering Course located at Blaise, you can buy a map from the Cafe at the main car park. For more information visit

Ping Pong

There are two concrete tables located by the cafe, they are free to use, just bring along a bat and ball.

Play Area

Blaise is home to one of the largest outdoor play areas in the Bristol area, so bring the kids a long to enjoy the facilities.


Based within the grounds of the estate is the Westbury Harriers running club. For more information visit


You will find Blaise a delight to wander round either to get lost in and stumble across the ruin of some ancient landscape feature, or go on an organised historical or nature walk in the company of an expert in their field. Some of these will only be announced at short notice. Register your interest and we will let you know with as much notice as we can, when the opportunity arises. There are five walks you can enjoy which cover most of the Blaise Castle estate and cover all the points of interest. The pamphlets in the links below were funded by Friends of Blaise.
