Owley Woods Glamping: View towards Mascall’s Wood

General

  • Dog-friendly adults-only glamping just over a mile from Cheddar Gorge
  • Wookey Hole, Wells and Burnham-on-Sea beach within a half-hour drive
  • Fully-furnished bell tents with kingsize bed, firepit and handy extras

Scenic walks by day and a smart place to stay once you’ve unlaced your boots – if that sounds like a splendid Somerset mix, set off for Owley Woods Glamping. This adults-only glampsite is surrounded by the landscapes of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty around a mile from Cheddar town centre.

That setting means that those walks are easy to access – the site is right on the West Mendip Way and next door to the Somerset Wildlife Trust’s Mascall’s Wood reserve. It’s also possible to walk to the top of the famed Cheddar Gorge from here, or take a more leisurely 15-minute stroll along a footpath to get to town for pubs, shops and cafés. Dogs are welcome to join you if the thought of all this walking gets those tails wagging…

When not out and about on the trails, there are games of crazy golf and watersports activities around Cheddar, and of course plenty of cheese to sample. Other outings might take you off to Wookey Hole, Glastonbury or Wells; the beaches of Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea are around half an hour’s drive away too if you fancy a day by the coast.

Wherever you roam by day, you'll be coming back to a comfy stay in a fully-furnished bell tent with a kingsize bed (with bed linen provided), lighting and handy extras like a kettle and toaster (plus the added luxury of a welcome pack that has tea, coffee and complimentary slippers). A barbecue, firepit and outdoor furniture are provided too (along with firewood to get your blaze going), and you'll have access to a smart bathroom block (opened for the 2021 season) with two showers and flush toilets.

Please note

    Owley Glamping, Cheddar, Somerset.

    We were so delighted to get a late booking at this amazing glamping site. Set in a tranquil and rural location with woodland all around, it was like being miles from anywhere, so quiet.

    We walked a couple of miles along the West Mendip Way to the top of Cheddar Gorge and were rewarded with breathtaking views.

    Our Lotus Bell Tent had a huge comfortable bed, plenty of surfaces to put stuff on and all our creature comforts. The shared areas (shower block and 'cheats' kitchen) were very clean and well equipped; it's all the added little touches that are well thought out, which makes it a special place to stay.

    Sitting outside our tent with the kettle on the woodburner, fire pit roaring (it's a barbecue too) is a memory we will treasure. We were pleased it rained one night as the sound on the canvas making it feel cosy, dry and warm inside, with stylish surroundings, were just magical.

    We can't wait to return and have a stress-free break again. We highly recommend glamping at Owley with Paula, the wonderful friendly host – nothing was too much trouble.

  • Tawny Belle bell tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful set up, so easy, just needed to turn up with clothes and a towel and everything else was there, in excellent condition. The owners were super friendly and seemed to have thought of everything! Solar panels so you can charge phones and have sufficient lighting in the tents which were super spacious! 2 brand new combined toilet and shower rooms (which is more than enough for 5 tents/adults only site), a fire pit/bbq and burner with a little outdoor seating area per tent along with all the utensils and access to unlimited logs etc, a kitchen bench for doing your washing up and even a little communal ‘pantry’ with a fridge, kettle (if you can’t wait for the log burner), toaster and some snacks plus extra coals etc you can purchase through an honesty box. It in a great location too, you’re oblivious to how close you are to the gorge and surrounded by trees with great walks straight from the property along the top of the gorge through nearby countryside. We loved staying at Owley Woods and will definitely be staying there again if we go back to the area or we may even make a trip just for a relaxed weekend in the outdoor but with all the comforts!

    Stayed for 2 nights (18-19th Sept) to explore Cheddar. The location and peaceful setting of the campsite is fantastic. You really feel like part of the forest and it's not too far to walk to the village or the Gorge.

    Paula made us feel very welcome and looked after. Great walking map and advice on the local area. Everything is clean and well kept. We loved Max the cat, watching the donkeys playing in the next door field and and listening to the owls in the evening.

    Beautiful, relaxing time. Thank you very much xx

    Loved Owley Woods site - perfect location to walk to the gorge and to town to some great pubs. Paula was lovely and happy to accommodate us when we arrived a bit early. The site is really lovely and marked out for social distancing too. The view is lovely from the upper parts of the field. It’s nice and small and quiet - one of my favourite campsites in a while! We had a really great stay and definitely appreciated getting a super helpful map when we reached!

Local attractions

Where to start with the attractions of Cheddar (20 minutes’ walk/five minutes’ drive)? It’s up to you whether you visit Cheddar Gorge first or sample the wares at the nearby Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company… but either way it’s worth leaving time for a fun round at Cheddar Crazy Golf too.

If you’re after rather more activity than that offered by crazy golf, perhaps check out the offerings of Brook Bank clay pigeon shooting (15 minutes’ drive) or try the watersports of Cheddar Reservoir (20 minutes). Meanwhile, for more leisurely outdoor time, the beaches of Burnham-on-Sea (half an hour) and Weston-super-Mare (35 minutes) beckon.

Elsewhere in the area, it’s worth exploring the spectacular showcaves at Wookey Hole (20 minutes) and the Gothic architecture of Wells Cathedral (25 minutes), and taking a stroll around Glastonbury (35 minutes). If you want to splash some cash, the outlet stores at Clarks Village (35 minutes) may well harbour some bargains.

Must see
