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.

    Spacious campsite with good views all around.
    Generally quiet and peaceful, other than occassional background sound of planes taking off from nearby Bristol airport, but this is in the distance and not overhead.
    Relaxed feel, pitch where you like.
    Good facilities, with excellent showers.
    Welcoming, friendly owner.

    Magnifique petit camping au coeur de la campagne du Sud de l'Angleterre
    Accueil très chaleureux du propriétaire, fermier juste à côté, qui nous a gratifié d'une course de poulets ! Rien que ça !
    Ambiance très mignonne, et sympa
    équipements très propres
    Petite perle de notre voyage sur 9 camping différents à travers toute l'Angleterre
    Pas loin de Bath et de Bristol

    Disliked: 

    Seul bémol mais qui ajoute au folklore, attention au petites routes encaissées dans les haies pour y parvenir

From the manager...

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay,
sun & rain this year the hedges have grown a lot,
which makes the roads even smaller you are correct.
We can not cut until 1st September
Kind regards to our French friends Michael.

    Lovely quiet well maintained rural and reclusive campsite with clean facilities. Lots of space and fire pits with a bargain wheelbarrow of wood. Bonus fun for children with evening chicken race and morning tractor ride. Will definitely go back.

    Disliked: 

    Although there is lots of space to choose from, there is a lot of sloping ground which can make sleeping uncomfortable. Spend a bit of time choosing your pitch.

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.
