Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get to Cotham Park Rugby Club?

Click here for our location on Google Maps. For satnavs, use postcode BS8 3TF.

Are dogs allowed?

Well behaved dogs are welcome to stay with us. However, dogs are not allowed in the clubhouse changing rooms or bar/kitchen area. You must also keep your dog on a lead while on the campsite. There is publicly accessible woodland next to the club, and of course the Ashton Court Estate, where you can exercise your dog off the lead.

Can I pay for food and drink by credit/debit card?

Yes, the bar and kitchen are now able to accept card payments.

Can I bring a barbecue or fire pit?

Yes you can. The barbecue or fire pit must be raised of the ground to avoid damage to the grass. We have some thermo-insulating bricks you can borrow to help with this, for example if you have a disposable BBQ. Please be aware that we will charge you for any damage to the grass.
