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).

Please note that you’ll need to bring your own wood for campfires, or ask the owners to buy some for you in advance of arriving.

Please note

Campfires are allowed on this site, logs are available to buy at the house. The use of generators is not allowed.

Lovely site with good facilities in terms of value for money. 25/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Welcoming hosts. Running water and toilets available. Lots of space. Very aesthetic with beautiful scenery. Left to your own devices but hosts are available should you need information. Half an hour drive to the beach. Local pub 5 minutes away. Good value for money at £5 a night for a non-electric pitch.

    Disliked: 

    A little out of the way but if you're looking for a remote location this is to be expected, makes no difference if you drive.

  • Liked: 

    Location of the site for places to visit and beautiful scenery. No set pitch sizes.

    Disliked: 

    Not really a dislike as we chose a site with compost toilets and it was quite busy but they and the porta loos did get a bit wiffy and full but it didn't spoil our stay in any way.

    People pitching up right in front and behind us when the field was almost empty. Would be good to have fields separately designated for families and couple or groups.

    No on site rubbish disposal

From the manager...

Thank you for your review, very glad you enjoyed your stay. Coincidently from this coming weekend there will be the facility to recycle cans and glass bottles. But we will still need people to take home any other rubbish. Most people dispose of most of their rubbish by putting it on their camp fire.

Directions


From the North/ Midlands:
Take the M5 then M4 to London and take first junction M32 Bristol.
At the end of the M32 follow the road around to the left.
Follow signs for A37 Wells (mostly written in the road). Basically the middle lane, past Temple Meads Station.
Continue to follow the signs for Wells through Pensford, Clutton, Temple Cloud, Farrington Gurney and Chewton Mendip.
At Green Ore (traffic lights with pub on right), continue straight on.
Approx ¼ mile turn right, signed for Priddy. (If you find yourself going downhill, you have gone too far)
Continue for three miles into the village, take the first left past The Queen Victoria pub.
We are 400 yards up on the right. There are 2 very large beech trees just before our drive.

Please call at the house on arrival.

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.

Must see

  • Wookey Hole Caves & Papermill (1.7 miles)
  • Ebbor Gorge National Nature Reserve (2.3 miles)
  • Wells Cathedral (3.2 miles)

National Trust

  • King John's Hunting Lodge (6.5 miles)
  • West Pennard Court Barn (8.5 miles)
