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.

Little Gem

Great little CL with everything you need for a peaceful stay. We have a 7.3mtr motorhome and spend most of our days walking the local areas wherever we stay, There are an abundance of footpaths & bridleways to choose from and sadly we were not here long enough to explore all of them. Some gorgeous Somerset villages on the doorstep along with the Mendip Way - just lovely ! We will be back !

We spent 6 nights here this July and had a very relaxing holiday. Narrow roads on last couple of miles to approach but followed instructions in the book and no problem and no traffic met. Lovely and peaceful. Wells is great to visit - we cycled from site, easier going than the return up hill but manageable. Also nearby is Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Tor, Shepperton Mallet a quiet sleepy town and of course Wells which is just lovely to wander around. At £10/night with electricity it is a bargain. Definitely worth a break there.

Very relaxing CL near Wells

Pitts Farm
Very peaceful site just north of the lovely city of Wells. John the farmer and owner is a caravan user and he has a lovely open well maintained field with views across the countryside. Plenty of things to see locally. Access is restricted but few vehicles use the lanes, so easy to manage with care.
