General

  • Close to Bristol and the spa city of Bath
  • Quiet, cosy and relaxing location
  • Campfires and barbecues allowed

Feel regal in Regil at the quiet, well-maintained and very green Walnut Tree Farm, a small, tucked-away farm campsite welcoming you on its well-laid out pitches and in excellent eco-friendly facilities, close to both Bristol and Bath and Somerset attractions like the Mendip Hills or the Monarch's Way, Cheddar Gorge and the tiny city of Wells.

The campsite is on the edge of a stream, with plenty of space and no restrictions on pitch size. It has clean, composting loos and a bunkhouse close to the pitches with two hot showers and kitchen facilities including a fridge, oven and washing machine.

Campfires are allowed on site to keep you toasty warm, and you can spark up the barbecue for burgers and bangers.

Great site, clean, friendly staff. Overall good experience! 04/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Great place to stay, nice and quiet. Especially if it's just adults staying. You can buy a wheelbarrow full of wood for the fire for £5.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets were basically a hole in the ground (though with a proper toilet seat etc) that you had to throw a scoop of sawdust into after you're done. Not a great place to stay with young children as there's a quiet period between 10pm and 8am (and our kids get up at 6.30am!! And they're too young to keep quiet) there is also no playground or anything but as we only stayed for 1 night I didn't mind that.

Brilliant little site for a getaway 20/06/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Martin W. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    The facilities were 2 compost loos and 2 showers all spotlessly clean, cleaned at least twice a day.
    The owner Mike was very welcoming and showed the children a baby calf, chickens and a tractor ride, couldn't have been friendlier.
    Fires allowed in pits and a barrow of wood for £5 lasted both nights.
    We will definitely return very soon.

    Disliked: 

    You can hear bristol airport early morning but this isn't too loud.

Directions


From Bristol
Take the A38 heading towards the airport. After about 10 minutes' drive and as you approach the Chew Valley Lake, take the left-hand turning onto the B3130, Barrow Lane. Follow the lane for a further five minutes and take a slight right onto Crown Lane. Drive past The Crown Pub into Regil where you find Walnut Tree Farm situated on a right-hand bend. The entrance to the field is on the apex of the bend to the right.

Local attractions

Looking over the Mendip Hills, it would seem that these limestone beauties would be an apt place to start your explorations from Walnut Tree Farm... it’s easy to see why this is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there’s plenty to do around the hills to take it all in.

With underground caves and rivers to explore, you wouldn’t be foolish for thinking this is more Middle-earth than Mendip, but wherever you play out your adventure, the opportunities for caving, cycling, walking, and horse riding will have (big and) little kids beguiled. Scenery aside, birdwatchers, butterfly spotters and flora enthusiasts will find some real gems among the natural treasures here.

For those whose fingers are of a green disposition, the arboretum at Westonbirt (just over 30 miles north) has a collection of trees (more than 2,500 different types, if we’re getting into the specifics) from China to North America. There are 17 miles of pathways to walk around and hands-on activities along the trails for mini explorers.

As well as the prehistoric Cheddar Gorge half an hour’s drive from the campsite, there’s a Victorian fort at Brean Down (about an hour’s drive west), and an Iron Age-hill fort (about 40 minutes south) at Brent Knoll, to hook every kind of history buff.

While you’re doing the historical rounds, go Gothic at the National Trust’s Tyntesfield, a turreted and stone-carved mansion ten miles north of Walnut Tree Farm. You'll be able to smell a good tale here – the house was once owned by one of the country’s wealthiest commoners, who managed to get himself rather stinking rich thanks to fertiliser. It’ll all make scents if you pay it a visit and find out more.

Step onto the Monarch’s Way footpath to walk along the escape route from the Battle of Worcester said to have been taken by King Charles II back in 1651. Running from Worcester to Bristol and down to Brighton, the path is clearly marked so ensures a royally safe experience.

From the Monarch’s Way south of Bristol, you’ll wind up in wonderful Wells (15 miles from Walnut Tree Farm), where a cracker of a cathedral awaits, along with the 800-year-old Bishop’s Palace and its myriad of medieval features including a drawbridge for trip-trapping over and well-kept gardens for exploring.

Bath (45 minutes to the east) has great walking tours, locally brewed Bath Ales to sample and the Jane Austen Centre to visit, not to mention a lengthy dip in the Roman baths to be had.

Bristol (35 minutes away) has the At-Bristol Science Centre, Bristol Zoo Gardens, Bristol Aquarium and Wild Place Project to get stuck into; a trip to these parts wouldn’t be complete either without a hangout at the Clifton Suspension Bridge: take your camera to get some gorge snaps.
