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.

Beautiful location

Primrose Caravan Park
Stayed here from 8 to 12 September 21, we were greeted by Nina who gave us a map and told us what was around the area. Lovely and very quiet site, with beautiful views overlooking Wells Town. Would recommend this cl site, and would definitely return .

Clean and tidy site

Primrose Caravan Park
A very clean and tidy site, owners very pleasant. But be aware of narrow entrance off a narrow lane if you have a wide or long outfit.

Charming CL site

Primrose Caravan Park
I recently had 3 nights staying on this beautiful CL site with our small motorhome. Communication with the site owner (Nina) was excellent and their own web site provided lots of additional information. Access was easy and Nina was there to welcome me with a pack of information and to show me my grass pitch. A small very neat service area provides all the re-cycling and facilities needed and I had the benefit of electric hook-up. The site is rural and on a hill overlooking Wells (about 1.5 miles away) and is close to the National Cycle Route 3, so I would strongly recommend taking bikes as both Wells and Glastonbury are in easy reach - and yes you can see Glastonbury Tor from the site. I chose to catch the local bus into Glastonbury, regular services run along the A39 which is only about 6 to 10 minutes walk from the site and there is even a small garden centre close by. Overall I would highly recommend this quite CL site. If you don't mind putting on your walking shoes and/or getting on your bike there is no need to move the van! A large Morrisons is also in easy reach should you need to stock up.

Highly recommended

Primrose Caravan Park
A well run site with views over Wells and Glastonbury Tor, as described. Large grass pitches with the minimum of levelling required. Very quiet and great for wildlife: we too spotted a hare and a pair of little owls. Owner welcoming and helpful. Entrance a tad tight for a caravan, but would highly recommend.

Remains a lovely and welcoming site.

Primrose Caravan Park
This was our second visit to the site, the first being per-covid. The site remains very well cared for and very clean and tidy. We had the rustling tree pitch which gave us views over to Wells Cathedral in one direction and towards Glastonbury Tor in the other direction. The site is well used and was fully occupied on our first night with four units on the second night. It is very handy for all local sights. With my bat detector I picked up common pipistrelle and big brown bat in a quick ten minute survey. We will most certainly return here.
