Searching for somewhere splendid to set down in the Somerset countryside? Overlooking miles of peaceful hills, Pilton Yurt Camps is a glamping site well-positioned for a rural getaway. So, whether you’re planning on surveying the caverns, stalactites and gorge at Cheddar Gorge (35 minutes’ drive away) or ogling over the animals in Longleat’s safari and adventure park (half an hour’s drive away), you’ll be well-set.
With bright mornings, resident roaming farm animals and a selection of wildlife around the site, this site is rather laidback and away from any city buzz. Despite its peaceful surroundings, there’s still wifi so that guests can take note of the local attractions.
Based on the outskirts of the scenic Pilton village, it’s easy to source any supplies or bits and bobs you left out of your luggage. The nearest food shop is five minutes’ drive away from the site (that’s a 35-minute walk if you’d rather go on foot).
Before you head out in search of food supplies though, you might want to scout out the local restaurants and cafés. Conveniently, there are many rural eateries on-hand to sample some Somerset produce and handily, they are within walking distance of the site.
And of course, if you’re looking for somewhere to eat with sights you can walk around afterwards, Glastonbury (20 minutes’ drive), Bruton (15 minutes) and Frome (25 minutes) are some good spots to dine out.

Take off on the local trails… you’ll pass by plenty of Somerset hills along the long-distance Leland Trail (15 minutes’ drive) and at the top of Glastonbury Tor (15 minutes), the rewards for your hill climb are the views from the monument. Around the Ebbor Gorge National Nature Reserve (25 minutes), you’ll get to circle around a sublime gorge, while at The Newt in Somerset (20 minutes), your wanderings will be based on a country estate with woodlands and gardens.
As you might tell from your hikes, there’s a lot of the rural around this area, and the Somerset Rural Life Museum (15 minutes) brings some of the old ways of working into the light. It’s just one of many places that bring back the past, such as the spooky Glastonbury Abbey (20 minutes), the National Trust’s Stourhead (35 minutes), Wells Cathedral (15 minutes), King Alfred's Tower (25 minutes) and the museums, caves and tunnels at the Wookey Hole Caves (20 minutes).
Onto other horizons, for wildlife, there are afternoons spent wildlife spotting at the Shapwick Heath National Nature Reserve (35 minutes)… and for those artistic types among you, an arts centre and gallery at Hauser & Wirth Somerset (20 minutes).
