Why stay here ...

Woodlands CL is situated in a small gently sloping valley on the edge of the Mendip Hills in Somerset close to the historic City of Wells.

Surrounded by open countryside and enjoying superb views, we are close to the amenities offered by the City of Wells and the Towns of Glastonbury, Cheddar and Shepton Mallet, which makes our site the perfect base from which to tour beautiful Somerset.

There are many World famous attractions within easy reach, Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Tor, Glastonbury Abbey and Wells Cathedral to name but a few.

A little further away, there are the coastal towns of Weston-Super-Mare, Burnham-On-Sea and Clevedon offering all the fun of the seaside for those who like a bit of a paddle.

For country lovers there are many walks and quiet country lanes to explore. With rugged footpaths and fantastic views from the top of the Mendip Hills to the lower flat ground of the Somerset levels, you will be spoilt for choice as to what to see next.

There is wildlife galore in adjacent fields with Rabbits, Foxes, Deer, Squirrels, Pheasants, Buzzards, Kestrels and Owls to be seen quite regularly. Horses and the usual selection of farm animals can be seen dotted around the local landscape.

With five well spaced pitches surrounding a centrally planted fruit orchard, each pitch is separated by newly planted Himalayan Birch trees and enjoys the benefit of individual electric hook ups.

There is a covered service area containing a fresh water point, grey waste disposal, chemical waste disposal and toilet. There is a second fresh water standpipe on the opposite side of the field.

We are sorry but electric cars cannot be charged on this CL.  Nearest charging point is Morrisons in Wells.

For dogs (and well behaved owners) there is an enclosed dog walking area on the site and there are several longer walks across nearby fields and at local locations.

We provide free WI-FI access for our visitors and for added security our completely enclosed site is protected by CCTV cameras.

Run by Kathy and Joe Bowers and we like to give a personal and friendly service and there will always be someone on hand to offer help and advise when required.

Sloping site which we would advise require levelling blocks for both Caravans and Motorhomes.

If you would like more information or would like to check on availability, please call us or book using the online form provided on our Website.

Lovely welcome Kathy, Joe and Mabel the kitten!

My wife and I arrived for a five night stay in our motorhome. We chose one of the five hard standings although there are three grass pitches available if the weather is fine. The site is well maintained by the owners Joe and Kathy who are keen to ensure that their visitors have a great time. The facilities include a toilet and shower for the exclusive use of their guests. They were spotless. The excellent wifi service was very much appreciated so that we could plan our visits during our time at the site. There is an hourly bus service from the village of Easton which is a short seven minute walk away. The bus service 126 will take you to Wells which is the smallest city in England. On the other hand you could travel in the other direction to Cheddar and beyond. However the star for us, (apologies to Joe and Kathy) was Mabel the kitten. What a cutie!!! Thank you for such a great stay. James and Linda

Well Kept Site, But Not For Us

We booked to stay for four nights here, but left a day early due to ensuing bad weather conditions. On arrival there was no one to greet us. There were five hard standing pitches, but these were very close together, which doesn't give you much privacy from your neighbours. We were unsure whether or not we could pitch our caravan on the very sloping grass field where there were other hook-ups. After two telephone calls, we received a call back to say where we could pitch the caravan. We elected to pitch on the grassy slope, which was beautifully mowed. The site is beautifully kept, but with a little effort some of the grass areas could be made more level. Toilet and shower on site. We didn't use the shower, as we prefer our own. We feel that charging £20 per night for a CL is the top end for CL pricing. We've discovered that there is a site near Wells that is charging £21 per night for a fully operational site. I'm afraid we won't be staying again.

Beautiful site

Kathy and Joe have a superb gem of a CL here. With hard standing pitches and grass pitches to choose from you are assured of getting a good pitch. Lovely grass area, with picnic benches and good enclosed dog walk, and great views. The exclusive toilet/ shower are spotless and well presented. The recently installed gravel road has removed any mud issues from access to your pitches. It’s a little tight through the Cheadle route, Joe suggested the route through Wells , a little longer but think of your heart... We will return again , Fantastic 5* site Bev & Dave

Gem of a site

We have just spent 6 nights at Woodlands while visiting our son. The site is very peaceful and very spacious, just what we like when on holiday with lovely views. We were met by Joe who was very accommodating and his wife Kathy had arranged for a hard standing pitch to be saved for us. No issues with the slightly sloping pitch, we have a blow up awning which recommends a level pitch but this was fine. The facilities were very clean and the site is very well kept. My son parked his car outside the site but was informed by Joe that he could park next to us which would not be allowed on some sites so this was an added bonus- Joe is very easy going and clearly wants people to enjoy their holiday and stay at their beautiful site. Wells is a very short distance away in the car and a really nice place to visit, we also found a Gluten Free restaurant called the Court Yard in Wells- fantastic value and great food which is often very difficult to find when one of you is gluten free, check times of opening as it is family run and not open summer hours yet. Also Freddy our Bedlington terrier enjoyed the dog walk/paddock on site. Thank you for a lovely stay- we will return!

Peacefull Stay

We stayed at this lovely site on one of the new hard standings, very easy access to the site and a great welcome by Kathy and Joe. Very friendly and helpfull to help with any needs. The toilets and shower are spotless and the site is very tidy. Peacefull stay with lovely views from the site and easily accessible to many nearby places as it is a good base for exploring or there are many nearby attractions tou keep you occupied or just enjoy the site as it is very quiet. There is also a lovely dog area where you can let your dogs off as it is enclosed. Joe was saying that they will be putting a gravel drive in soon so it will make the drive out of the site much easier in wet weather for front wheel drive vehicles, but they both will help if you need a tow out with their 4wd and let you hitch up at the top. Thank you Joe and Kathy for a lovely week.
