Fantastic views

General

  • Small, friendly glampsite beside a bluebell wood in the Mendip Hills
  • On the edge of a working farm, a 10-minute drive to Chew Magna’s lake
  • A 20-minute drive from Cheddar Gorge and the cathedral city of Wells

Stays in scenic Somerset are particularly splendid when they’re at Nettwood Country Breaks, a friendly glampsite in the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with topnotch views across the Chew valley and its lovely lake.

Spectacular scenery is also visible from the accommodation at this park a 20-minute drive from the small city of Wells, set as they are in thoughtful positions on the edge of the owners' working farm and next to a bluebell field. Units are placed close enough for families who want to be together, yet are spaced out enough to ensure a bit of privacy.

For those with eagle eyes, wildlife is all around the spacious grounds as well – listen to birdsong from your private decking and look out for the deer that regularly roam the woods edging the site. While you’re ambling on these tree-lined paths, pick up fallen twigs for the campfire and barbecue (blazes are allowed at this park) or just work up an appetite for supper at one of the two pubs serving food in the local village, which also has a shop.

Legs need more stretching? Step out onto one of the local footpaths for rural wanders or test your fitness on the nearby cycle routes. Alternatively, get in the car and drive over to the famed village of Cheddar, 20 minutes away, for cave tours, climbing and clifftop hikes at the gorge (a must after indulging in all the cheese sold in the shops…) Two fishing lakes and a couple of local golf courses are also a short drive away.

Extra showers and toilets were added to the site's clean and well-kept amenities in 2018.

    We stayed in the woodland pod and loved everything about it. The Pod had everything we needed for our break and we had plenty of room for the 3 of us. The added bonus of lots of outdoor space and seating to enjoy the sun. Converted to Glamping now!

  • Liked: 

    We had a lovely stay in the new safari tent. The three children greatly enjoyed the freedom of the camp, exploring the woods, fields and amazing playground. I appreciated the feeling of safety, knowing they were safe to explore.

    The tent was lovely and clean when we arrived, beds were comfortable, more utensils and cutlery than we would need! Eco toliet and own fridge were lovely bonuses, and the shower block was warm and clean.

    Debbie was amazing, bringing us more blankets after a cold first night. She was great also when water was cut off (a burst pipe off camp, nothing that could be helped!) bringing free bottled water supplies constantly all evening until supply returned.

    Will be returning!

Beautiful pod on a lovely site.28/05/2019

  • Liked: 

    The hut was beautiful and the woodland outside was very beautiful - we were visited by some wildlife and even spotted a woodpecker! The bed was comfortable and facilities were ample (crockery, cutlery, cooker etc.) We didn’t take our little one with us but the park and grounds looked great for children. The host was lovely and very helpful when I telephoned to say we would be arriving quite late. We had a fantastic stay - thank you!

    Disliked: 

    The nearest shower was in a room with a curtain instead of a lockable door so I didn’t feel comfortable using it. We didn’t investigate the other shower blocks so I’m not sure if this is the case for them all.

From the manager...

Hi There,
Thank you for reviewing our pod and i'm glad you had a lovely stay.
I am sorry I didn't catch up with you in person but you must've made the most of your time out and about as I didn't catch you in and don't like to disturb people too early or late!

I'm sorry you weren't comfortable with the showers but we do have 5 other new lockable showers in Lakeview a very short walk away which I will make sure all people realise in the future.
Debbie😎

Local attractions

For kid-friendly caverns, a play area, crazy golf and a lively circus, Wookey Hole (15 minutes’ drive) is the place to go; if you’re travelling sans small fry, the laidback city of Wells (just over 20 minutes) has grownup pursuits sorted with its cathedral, twice-weekly traditional market and great pubs.

For outdoor activities, Cheddar Reservoir is a half-hour drive away – head here to fish and boat, or aim for Chew Valley Lake (just over 10 minutes) if you’d rather birdwatch from the banks instead of getting out on the water.

A touch further on from here are the Stanton Drew Circles and Cove (20 minutes’ drive); after checking out one of the biggest Neolithic monuments ever constructed, move onwards towards Bath (50 minutes) to admire the Georgian architecture and Roman-era hot springs.

Must see

  • Ebbor Gorge National Nature Reserve (4.0 miles)
  • Wookey Hole Caves & Papermill (4.1 miles)
