General

  • Back to basics farm site near Wells
  • Pitch where you like
  • Water supply and toilets on site

Let your troubles ebb away at Ebborways Farm near Wells, in the scenic heart of Somerset. Perfect for those in pursuit of an authentic camping experience, simplicity is the key here: it’s just you, a field – and a campfire if you like – in sumptuous, serene surroundings. Facilities are limited to a water supply and composting loos, and you can pitch wherever you like, alone or in groups.

However, you’re not too far from a bit of civilisation: it’s a short walk to a handful of pubs - including a couple that do top-notch food - and a farm shop, in the local village of Priddy (and it is, too).

Fire packs (matches, firelighters, kindling and logs), as well as nets of logs, are available to buy on arrival.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Perfect for wild camping, great location, kid and dog friendly.27/10/2019

  • Liked: 

    Perfect for wild camping. Lots of space so you can just turn up and pick where you want to pitch up. No stupid rules about one unit per pitch, which is perfect for large families who need to occupy multiple units. Lots of room for kids to play football or ride bikes. Camp fires and dogs welcome. The location is great for Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and Wells. Very cheap too so great for those on a budget. Mark is very welcoming and helpful. The site is lovely and quiet. I would certainly recommend this place to friends and family.

    Disliked: 

    There's nothing I disliked about this site. However the wash room could to with refurbishing and a real good clean. Either that or just get rid of it, it's wild camping after all.

    This site is very cheap, that's its biggest selling point. As basic as you can get. 3 very big fields, compost loos, no showers.

    Compost loos were pretty bad. The oartition between the tow loos wasn't up to the ceiling, so you can see your neighbour!

    Music and fighting at 3am, nobody to police the idiots. An absolute nutter of a woman screaming obscenities spoilt it for the rest of us.

Local attractions

Given the proximity of Bath and Wells, there’s an obvious temptation to regale your companions with choice one-liners from Blackadder; but pause for breath and you’ll discover that both have more celebrated charms than the baby-eating bishop.

Bath probably needs less of an introduction: think Roman baths, Georgian grandeur, Jane Austen, rugby and culture aplenty; while Wells, which holds the accolade of England’s smallest city, is a medieval gem with a thirteenth century cathedral, a moated bishop’s palace, and a lively twice-weekly market.

Also highly recommended is a trip to the spectacular Cheddar Gorge, which offers something for all ages: breathtaking views; brilliant caving and rock climbing; walks up Jacob’s Ladder; open-top bus tours; a clutch of family attractions; eerily beautiful stalactite caverns; and, of course, more cheese than you can shake a stick at.

Keen walkers will be delighted by the proximity of the Mendips (Ebborways Farm is close to the West Mendip Way, which runs to the Ebbor Gorge nature reserve); or, for those who prefer life on four wheels, there are loads of fascinating places an easy drive away: atmospheric Glastonbury, the colossal caves and family attractions at Wookey Hole, the vibrant maritime city of Bristol, the fantastic safari and adventure park at Longleat, and the sandy beaches of Weston-super-Mare.

If you’re visiting in August, you may be lucky enough to coincide with Priddy’s annual sheep fair; this historic event, with animal demonstrations, a funfair and more, attracts a whopping 10,000 visitors each year.

Finally, should you feel the need to indulge in our national pastime, there are more than 90 outlet shops at the Clarks Village centre, in the nearby village of Street.

  • Wookey Hole Caves & Papermill (1.7 miles)
