This web site covers Kelston Roundhill, a prominent landmark between Bath and Bristol owned by Kelston Tump LLP and farmed by Park Farm Ltd, the organic dairy farm behind Bath Soft Cheese. 

For Roundhill Barn, the renovated Victorian barn available for hire for events see RoundhillBarn.com.

The owner Kelston Tump LLP has three priorities for the 160 acre estate:

  1. financially sustainable farming;
  2. more natural diversity and closeness to nature
  3. suitable amenity, education and leisure uses.

We’re always happy to hear stories, photos, historical evidence or anything else that helps everyone understand why this land has been and continues to be important to people. To contact us email kelstonroundhill@gmail.com.

In case of urgent emergency, vandalism or criminal damage please call the police or emergency services.

    Dear William, I sent you a text a few days ago but maybe you didn’t receive it. Please would it be okay for us to do our annual Saltford school Ascension Day walk on Friday 15th May? We would be arriving around 12 o’clock, having a short service, eating our packed lunches and then, after a short play time, leaving about 1.30pm. We would, of course, ensure that no litter was left on site.
    Hoping that will be okay,
    Neil Baker

    Hello, I came to your wonderful venue on Saturday for Su Hart’s lovely harmonium which was beautiful but just wanted to let you know that certainly driving from Corsham the directions given on the website when you click on the link take you up on a farm track that looks certainly in the dark as if you cannot access the barn.
    I just thought it would be a good idea to update the website so that access is as you wrote in the email via Kelston.

    Luckily I was not on my own and was able to go through the gate and turn around to come back down the very rutted farm track which is on the other side of the Roundhill, it was a very scary moment.

    Very best wishes,

    Tania George

    Thanks Tania; we’ve had a couple of messages from neighbours who report lost punters also. Craig from Kelston Records has drafted some better instructions which we’ll put on the web site. Hope you test them out in 2018.

    A message for Mike who locked up today who was most helpful in helping us find lost house keys. We wanted him to know that we did find them in the clover field used for parking.

    Thanks for the wonderful venue which gave a memorable setting for the weekend.

    I visited the churchyard in Kelston last week and was intrigued to see the Backholer gravestone, with its cross and Star of David. Just wondering if you have any knowledge of the family, particularly any Jewish connection? I’m Jewish and live in Bath, hence my interest. Thank you!

      Deborah I just don’t know. There is a Kelston history society though. Might be worth contacting; email and we can forward if you want.

  10. Thanks, I’d appreciate that. I can’t find an email address though.

    Hi there,

    I’m looking for somewhere to host a family/friends camping birthday weekend summer 2022. Probably around 20 tents/Campervan and a covered/barn area to have evening entertainment (dj or small band).
    Should be safe/suitable for children.

    This August I had a fantastic fortieth birthday weekend at the barn, with friends and family camping and staying nearby. We saw a congress of hot air balloons make their slow progress, had a few beautiful sunsets, indoor fires and a fire pit in the courtyard each day, and nights lit by candlelight and from the top of the round hill views of the lights in the sky and from the land. It would have been worth it for twice the price and half the time. And as many free blackberries as anyone felt fit to pick and eat. Three thumbs up.

    Hello, I would like to inquire what the cost of renting this venue in the afternoon/ evening for a wedding reception. And also ask if there are power outlets?

    (if it’s you getting married, that is)
