Why stay here ...

This is a peaceful site situated in the heart of the Somerset countryside, on the edge of the Mendip Hills. It is south facing with views over the Somerset levels. The site is part of a working farm but is about ¼ mile away from the farmhouse and buildings and therefore generally quiet.

Do not be put off by reference to difficulty regarding the country lanes - the farm's suppliers, including large lorries have no problems getting here.

The site backs on to a small wood and is sheltered from north winds. This means there is also an abundance of wildlife - rabbits, badgers and pheasants abound!

The field is level with unrestricted pitches. We are happy for you to pitch anywhere although this will depend upon how near to the electric hook up you need to be. We currently have one hard standing and are considering more but we are concerned not to spoil the natural feel to the site by making it too regimented.

We welcome motor homes, awnings, children and well behaved pets and do not charge extra for them!

There is a nearby public footpath to the historic city of Wells (approximately 2 ½  miles). There are good pubs and restaurants within 3 miles - also two 18 hole golf courses.

Nearby attractions include Wells Cathedral and Vicars Close, Glastonbury Tor and Wookey Hole Caves and Two 18 hole golf courses. We are close to Cheddar Gorge and the Bath and West Showground. The lovely cities of Bath and Bristol are only 45 minutes away.

Lovely quiet and peaceful

Spent 5 nights in early October 2018. Enjoyed the tranquillity and the location very much. Will return when we visit the area.

Fantastic

This was our first time at a CL site. It was just what we needed, relaxed, and in the middle of the countryside. Being based on a working farm and next to other farms there were some farm sounds but as we are from an agricultural background this didn't worry us at all. Mr Jones the owner was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. Although the site as wet due to the excessive rain of the past few weeks we got onto and off site with no problems. Very reasonable rates at £10 per night. The site was ideal for the local area of Wells and Cheddar. We'd definitely return again for another quite relaxing week. The display of daffodils in the site and up the main farm drive were a delight in the grey weather.

Tranquil and relaxing

We enjoyed two very peaceful and relaxing nights at Pitts Farm. Location to the charming city of Wells was ideal. Mr Jones was very welcoming and knowledgable of the surrounding area. His display of over 1,200 daffodils were amazing. If you are looking for peace and quiet with wonderful south facing views, then give Pitts Farm a try.

Lovely site

Great little side, it was wet when we visited but no trouble at all. Handy for Wells. Well kept. Easy to drive up to pay fees.

A hidden Gem

This is a delightful, peaceful site , with lovely views over the surrounding area. lovely dog walks. There is a lot to do and see in the area ,but this would be better with a car . Our rather wide motorhome, while able to get into the site easily, was not ideal for pottering around some of the local lanes. Parking in Wells was impossible for us. We would thoroughly recommend this site for car/caravaners
