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.

The CL is run by the owner Nina who is happy to help you with anything you may require.

Amazing views from all angles, well maintained site.

We had four nights at this site recently , weather was unfortunately very wet but this did not affect the warm welcome we got from Nina . The views from the site were amazing and thank goodness the site is quick to drain so remained easy to access, the site is gently sloping but you can position your caravan how you want which helped. Very well maintained with close cut grass, very easy access to water, waste , rubbish, disposal etc .Electric gate for security , returnable deposit required for fob, access is easy but needs care. On arrival Nina met us ,welcomed us and gave us all info we needed and best of all bought us two big slices of lemon cake still warm from the oven , delicious and very welcome. Both Nina and her husband were very friendly but never intrusive but if asked very informative. Thank you for a very pleasant stay in a lovely area with plenty to see and do. Can highly recommend Yeovil Fleet Air Arm Museum.

Fantastic weekend

This is a great CL site. We had a warm welcome from Nina's daughter, later Nina surprised us with beautiful chocolate cake, many thanks. The site is on a hill, the views either to Wells or Glastonbury Tor are wonderful. We were given a map to walk into Wells, takes approx. 30 minutes. For cyclists there is a route through to the strawberry line, not tried yet! A very clean and tidy site, the turning from Brown's garden centre is easy to find, the lane to the site is no trouble, even for a motor home. Overall a beautiful site with many places to visit in the area. We will be back soon! Many thanks Phil,Amanda and Leiya the parrot

Immaculate site

This was our first trip in our newly acquired Motorhome. If all sites are as clean and welcoming as this we will not be disappointed that we decided to try motorhoming! A warm welcome from Nina’s daughter, with cake, a map of the area, and the dongle for the gate. Nina introduced herself as soon as she was home and gave us useful advice on what to see and do in Wells. A visit to The Bishop’s Palace is a must, stunning gardens. Good market on Saturday. Excellent family run pizza restaurant recommend by Nina. We had the site to ourselves so it was lovely and quiet. The views are lovely, the site and service area was immaculate. Highly recommended.

What an awesome find..!

We recently stayed at Primrose Caravan CL for 6 days covering the Easter break. What a wonderful find this is. Nina greeted us with hot chocolate cake and a warm and genuine welcome which included the loan of a map of how to walk to Wells, and a number of points of interest, form the site. The site itself is immaculate with views over to Wells Cathedral on one side and to Glastonbury Torr to the other. The 5 pitches are well spaced out and provide plenty of room between each outfit. The site is easily found being a short drive off the A39 Glastonbury – Wells road. We tow a Swift Challenger 560 (6.66m 21' 10") and had no access issues getting in or out of the site which is also secured by automatic gates and ‘dongle’ for which a £10 deposit is required, well worth it for the peace of mind and security it provides. We very much enjoyed this top class CL and Nina’s warm and friendly welcome. Nina is clearly and justly proud of her immaculate site. We’ll most certainly be back…. Would recommend a visit to the Bishop's Palace gardens in Wells (Stunning), the quirky Sheppy Inn in Lower Godney (Try the Truman's pale ale) and Clarke's retail park in Street if good beer, food and bargains are of interest..... A walk up Glastonbury Torr is a must.. PS: I’d advise using Junction 23 if travelling on the M5 as this takes you to the A39 and an easy approach to the site.

Above and beyond

We stopped off here on our journey from Cornwall as we travelled home back up North.. We had a fantastic 4 days here...and must say that Nina goes above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Nina has a C.L. to be very proud of and it comes across that she is quite rightly proud of what she has achieved and her hard work is a credit to her, as the paddock and services are absolutely immaculate. She greeted us on arrival with warm chocolate cake..delicious and she is very friendly and informative. The views over Wells are stunning and we couldn't of wished for a better 4 days and would love to return. Well done Nina and family for a top stay xx Suzanne and Tony Nicholson
