Why stay here ...
We are a quiet rural park set in the quaint hamlet of Launcherley overlooking the medieval city of Wells 1.5 miles away, which has a unique charm all of its own. The site is surrounded by a captivating range of spectacular views; Wells and its Cathedral set against the backdrop of the Mendip Hills, Glastonbury Tor amidst the Somerset levels and mystical moors, or the lovely Launcherley Hill. All set in beautiful rural countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We welcome all caravans, smaller motor homes, awnings, children, but sorry - no pets. The site is grassed and mainly level. There is a hard-standing enclosed service area for drinking water, recycling, general rubbish, chemical waste point and grey water disposal.
There are also many fascinating historical buildings, that form part of the heritage trail through Wells, as well as many varied and picturesque walks in the area. Cycling routes, including SUSTRANS route No 3 that runs along the Stawberry Line (a traffic free route across Somerset) passes within a mile of our site, linking our local villages, all waiting to be explored right outside our gate. We are also close to an amazing variety of local attractions, festivals (inc Glastonbury festival) and activities are plentiful. Please view our website for more details of local events as well as availability and also the facility to book and pay on-line.
The nearest public footpath is approximately 500yds further along the lane linking you directly to the heart of England’s smallest city Wells, approximately 1 mile and 25 mins walk. Wells has a charming and varied selection of cafes, restaurants, pubs, take-away’s and shops to look at, as well as a 18 hole golf course.
Wells offers many attractions including Wells Cathedral, Vicars Close, St Cuthbert’s Church, the Bishops Palace, moat and gardens, and the Wells & Mendip Museum. The surrounding area also provides a wealth of interesting things to see & do, including Glastonbury Tor, the Abbey, and a rural life museum plus the ancient Chalice Well. Then there are Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar & Cheddar Gorge, the Bath & West Showground hosting a varied selection of special events plus many more places. For shoppers Clarks village is 15mins away with over 90 shops of discounted merchandise including their quality shoes. The Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Haynes motor museum are roughly 30 mins away.
Further-a-field there is also the Georgian city of Bath the Roman Baths and Thermae Bath spa or Bristol with its Malls and large selection of shops, restaurants and theatres. Longleat and its safari park are also an amazing day out and all only 45 mins away.
Also, for the more adventurous there is a long list of exciting activities at 'Mendip Outdoor Pursuits' for children and family fun. Or for a more relaxing time, there are 4 RSPB reserves near-by.

from Samantha Andrews (UK) via Lodgify May 06 20185.0 Accepted Stay April 26th - 28th Samantha Andrews reviewed Primrose Caravan Park – 5 star 1 May at 22:31 · What an amazing find! We decided we would like to visit historic Wells and couldn’t be happier with our choice of certified location - it was perfect with views of the Glastonbury Tor, the Mendip Hills and Wells. A lovely little footpath around 1.5 miles to walk in to Wells and Nina supplied us with a great map with some good recommendations of where to eat (can thoroughly recommend the pizza place) We loved the fantastic customer service provided by Nina, a really easy booking process, friendly efficient and professional - and we were even greeted with yummy homemade ginger cake, a lovely touch and greatly appreciated. The facilities were excellentwith water, electricity and a waste disposal area. We would really recommend this site and look forward to booking again the next time we visit the area. Thank you Nina 5/2018
