General

  • Peaceful pop-up site on the outskirts of the Mendip Hills
  • A 15-minute drive from Weston-super-Mare; 25 minutes to Cheddar Gorge
  • Access to the Mendip Way; two country pubs within walking distance

Pop down to the pop-up site at Flittermouse Copse Camping on the edge of the Mendip Hills… the spacious three-acre site is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with some sublime views over the Bristol Channel, North Somerset and on a clear day, the Brecon Beacons.

Those green-fingered folk among you will probably be happy to find that the owners here are rewilding their sloping three-acre field and have planted hundreds of trees and shrubs. The young woodland, pond and vegetable and flower garden all add to the earthy back-to-nature feel, as do the basic pop-up facilities including water, a sink, composting toilet and cold shower.

Walking is quite the sport here, as there are trails straight from the field, including the Mendip Way, which runs above the top edge of the site for a hilly 50-mile hiking route. Other prime routes include the ancient woodland down the hill or Bleadon Hill, 40 minutes’ walk away, for more show-off views – this time of the Somerset Levels.

A cosy country pub may very well be the place to go after a day's walking. Handily, from this site, there are two such places within walking distance or a five-minute drive of the site. As for supermarkets, there are several in Weston-super-Mare, 15 minutes’ drive away.

    We had a really great time, a lot of space to ourselves and an amazing view. The owners were really relaxed and have made a beautiful space. Ideal for people who are after bare neccessities and isolation. The site is off the beaten track without being out of reach of local amenities , a really nice balance.

    Disliked: 

    The only real downside for us was that in a couple of years when the trees have really started to kick on the place will be even nicer!

    I had a lovely stay here - they were friendly and even helped me put my tent up. The site is lovely with stunning views and new trees growing, it was very interesting to hear about. There is a great walk from the back of the site too.
    Facilities are basic but clean and good, the cold shower was perfect for me. They have done some levelled pitches - I used one and it was very comfortable.

    Great views, bell tent is in excellent condition, compost loo clean with plenty of sawdust, loo roll and hand sanitizer. We were able to have a walk in the sunshine from the site down to the pub in Bleadon. We picked loads of blackberries and we had a fire. The next day we drove to Sand Bay for a walk on the beach. It was lovely. I'm

Local attractions

With all the greenery around the site, it might be easy to forget that the seaside’s only a short car ride away. So, whether you’ve got a thing for donkey rides on the beach – the stuff of Weston-super-Mare (15 minutes’ drive) and Berrow beach (25 minutes) – or watersports – on the roll at both Berrow and Brean beach (25 minutes) – there’s much to do.

Brean beach has dunes and a Victorian fort for good measure, the beginning of a whole heap of historical sights that you could add into the mix. Those might include Glastonbury (45 minutes) for abbey ruins and museums (as well as walks around Glastonbury Tor) and Clevedon's Victorian pier (half an hour), which injects some history to the town’s watersports-heavy marine lake and beach.

There’s a lot of action in the city of Bristol (45 minutes), especially when it comes to the art and culture scene or nightlife, but for those of you who are keen to check out nature’s natural hidey holes, there are caves and family-friendly attractions at Wookey Hole (40 minutes) and more caverns, this time with rocksport activities, a walking trail and a museum, at Cheddar Gorge (25 minutes).

Must see

  • Cheddar Caves & Gorge (7.0 miles)
  • Wookey Hole Caves & Papermill (12.3 miles)
  • Ebbor Gorge National Nature Reserve (13.2 miles)

National Trust

  • King John's Hunting Lodge (4.8 miles)
  • Clevedon Court (9.3 miles)
