General

  • Spacious back to basics site in the Mendip Hills
  • A quarter of an hour's drive from Cheddar; Wells 20 minutes
  • Pick your own pitch; two minutes' walk from a coffee stand

Hillcroft Farm is a spacious rural campsite in a scenic setting with far-reaching views over the Mendip Hills and handy access from the B3134. Located in the countryside of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near the hamlet of Nordrach, this site is great for the energetic and those who appreciate hiking, as well as fans of horseback riding, fishing, swimming, climbing and sailing, all of which are on offer in the surrounding area.

Alternatively, of course, you may just prefer to kick back in these laidback surroundings and soak up the views, venturing out from time to time to lounge on the beaches at Weston-super-Mare (30 minutes' drive) and Burnham-on-Sea (35 minutes).

Hillcroft Farm has good toilet and shower facilities, and coming here also means that you can borrow a firepit (subject to availability) and set it up by your pitch. You can buy logs on site for your firepit if you need them. The local area has further amenities, and an independent pop-up coffee stand is on hand two minutes' walk down the road for coffee and cake between 7.30am and 1pm.

Just a little bit further away in Blagdon (five minutes), there's a handy shop, post office and three different pubs to explore.

    Absolutely lovely hosts. Shower and Toilet kept spotlessly clean. Great recycling facility and good to see that free fire pits are available. Very close to explore Cheddar and the Gorge. Within driving distance of the coast and Glastonbury and Wells close to visit too. Site is set in beautiful countryside with amazing views.

    Disliked: 

    Field is very close to the main road and you can't really escape the noise from it wherever you pitch. Especially noisy with motorbikes on their bank holiday roadtrips. However the plus points far out way this minus. Would come again with earplugs.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind comments Gwyn and we look forward to see you again.

    Easy to find, big campsite with lots of space and very welcoming!

    Disliked: 

    The adjacent road is very loud and unfortunately kept us up for a lot of the night. Limited facilities (very smelly toilet!) but fine if you’re happy with basic.

From the manager...

This is our first year of opening and we listen to feedback, we are planning to improve toilet facilities by installing a flushing toilet in readiness for next year.

    The site offers pleasant views.
    Close proximity to areas such as Velvet Bottom and the Gorge for hikers/ramblers.
    Friendly and helpful campsite hosts who took time and interest in your camping stay.

    Disliked: 

    Campers need to be aware that the site is not remote therefore they will hear traffic noise regularly.
