The meadow is located on Back Lane at the western side of the village of Kingston Seymour. Depending on your approach, the field can be reached via the town of Clevedon or via the village of Yatton. The most direct approach is from Yatton. Coming north through Yatton on the B3133 reaching ‘North End’ you take a left hand turning just past the Bridge Inn. Passing Acorn Fishery on your left you drive over the M5. Coming into Kingston Seymour, you will see the centre of the village with a bus shelter to your right at the ‘triangle’ go straight across into Middle Lane. Drive past The Plantations cafe and fishing lakes on your right. After approx 1 mile you will reach a sharp right hand bend at Channel View Farm. Blackberry Meadow is approx 100 metres on the right.
Kingston Seymour has a number of fishing lakes, some of which have cafes. Clevedon is a short drive/cycle through level country lanes. The best kept secret though, is the coastal scenery. Only a short walk from the meadow is the ‘seawall’ - miles of sea defences that stretch north to Clevedon or south towards Worle and Weston-super-Mare. At the south end near the tidal river there are bird hides and many migrating species can be spotted. If you are keen on foraging, Samphire (sea asparagus) can be picked during June and July.
