Eco-friendly, campfire-friendly, family-friendly camping on the farm – plus Somerset's famous Wookey Hole caves on the doorstep

The world famous Wookey Hole Caves, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), has been used by humans for over 45,000 years. But it’s only in the last couple of decades that the limestone caverns have also prompted an array of other attractions. Wookey Hole’s website now points you to the 4D cinema experience, pirate adventure golf, Valley of the Dinosaurs and a scale model village, among many others. The latter replica doesn’t show a goat farm anywhere on the model. But, back in the real world, it’s little over two miles from the caves that you’ll find one – a sweet little smallholding on the edge of Wookey Village. And the farm boasts a cracking pint-sized campsite too.

Established by friendly proprietors Ian and Sarah Davies, the two-and-a-half-acre site is split across pair of adjasent meadows; the first with a recycing bin, firepit and picnic table at each of the shrub-lined pitches, while in the second you can just pop your tent where you please in the open grassy space bordered by the River Axe (bring your own firepit if you wish to have a campfire).

Sarah and Ian take pride in offering a basic and sustainable camping experience. Loos are are clean and well kept but of the composting kind and there are no showers on the site at all. You’ll have to take a dip in the river if you’re truly desperate for a wash – idling its way lazily past the site it's great for paddling and dam building, while tire swings hang from a couple of large oak trees on the bank.

Yet while Sarah and Ian have worked hard to craft the perfect family campsite, there’s no denying that their first love at Wookey Farm is still the animals. Their herd of near-100 goats – curious British Toggenbergs with white stripes down their faces and a tendency to nibble toggles off your overcoat – is milked twice a day (watch in the milking parlour at 8:30am or 5pm). There’s also a pair of Gloucester Old Spot pigs, a clutch of egg-laying hens and a bashful donkey named Mr Pickles who, once befriended, is exceedingly fond of a rub behind the ears.

In summer, Sarah supplements the farm’s usual cheeses with homemade halloumi – a superb treat when toasted over the campfire – as well as goats’ milk ice-cream, which is only available to campers and tastes all the sweeter as a result. Their other cheeses are also sold at markets around Somerset, including in nearby Wells on most Wednesdays. It’s well worth popping to the tiny city anyway to marvel at the grand gothic-style cathedral before venturing into the Mendip Hills for a walk. It’s also a 15-minute drive to Glastonbury and just over half an hour to the Somerset coast. That’s all if you get past the endless list of attractions at Wookey Hole, of course. Adventure golf anyone?



11 electric hook-ups, drinking water taps, washing up areas, compost toilets and chemical disposal point for caravans and motorhomes. No showers. Campfires permitted in designated areas next to each pitch and logs for sale (£5 per bag). The adjacent field is bordered by the River Axe – great for paddling in and dam building – plus some rope swings for kids. Campers are welcome to help out on the farm (a working goat dairy), meeting the animals and getting involved with milking and feeding.

Suitable For

Tents, trailer tents, caravans, campervans, (well-behaved) dogs – yes. Large groups and noisy folks – no.


It's 2½ miles to Wookey Hole (01749 672243; Wookey Hole and Wookey Village are separate places), where there really is a wealth of attractions: The Wizards Play Castle, the Mystic Fairy Garden, the Penny Arcade, the Cave Museum, Wookey Model Village, Pirate Adventure Golf and 4D cinema, to name but a few. Plus, of course, the caves, which are by far the most deserving point of interest. The full extent of the cave system is still unknown, but around 4,000 metres, including 25 chambers, having already been explored, and include one cave noted for 'the Witch of Wookey Hole' – a human-shaped stalagmite that legend says is a witch turned to stone by a monk from Glastonbury. Talking of which, it's 5½ miles to mystical Glastonbury itself, where a walk up to Glastonbury Tor is practically mandatory if you're visiting the area. Wells is also on the doorstep – daily cathedral tours except on Sundays and a regular market – and, just north of the town, the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty begins.

Food & Drink

Visit the site's farm shop to buy their own produce, including their excellent goats cheeses, as well as goat meat, lamb and pork, or head to one of the three pubs in the village. The Ring of Bells (01749 678079) is closest (easy walking range) and is a lovely old spot with white-washed walls, low beamed ceilings and open fires. There is also a good café and small shop – The Wookey Hub (01749 672784) – which comes highly recommended by the campsite owners and is also an easy walk away in Wookey Village. Wells' (3½ miles from the campsite) has a Farmers' Market every Wednesday and a regular market on Saturdays.


Late March – early November.

Getting There

The farm postcode is BA5 1DT but if, for any reason, this doesn't work, then BA5 1LL will take you to the end of the lane. If you're travelling from Wedmore on the B3139, don't turn left at Yarley Cross into Wetmoor Lane as you will end up in a river! Instead, take the next left turn into Preywater Road and follow the directions: From Wells, take the Cheddar road (A371) west out of Wells. Just as the houses on your left end, bear off to the left onto the Wedmore road (B3139). After 1 mile, take the second right into Preywater Road. Then take the 3rd left into Knowle Lane (where the road sharply bends to the right). After 160m take the left fork (Monksford lane where the brown Wookey farm camping sign is). Continue for ½-mile and the campsite entrance is on the right, on the sharp left-hand bend before the ford.

You can get a bus to Wells bus station, from there Wookey Farm is about 2 miles – if you're a keen walker it takes about 45 minutes. There's also a bus which goes directly to Wookey but it only runs once a day.

Lovely eco camping

We stayed on a Sunday night, as the season is quietening down, so there were only a handful of campers in the smaller van field. Great that each pitch is in its own alcove with camp fire area and picnic bench, and bins. The owners were nice and the little shop had some lovely things. Firewood was with an honesty box so you could collect to suit. My husband wasn’t impressed by the compost loos, but I thought they were ok. The best thing about Wookey farm are the animals! Mr Pickles the donkey was lovely (although he did bray at dawn!) he was the spitting image of Donkey from Shek 😁. The pigs were lovely too. I didn’t go visit the goats, as the addition of goat meat in the shop would have made my visit bittersweet 🙃

I really wanted to like it after the great reviews

After reading such great reviews I was so looking forward to staying here but the facilities just let it down. The good points are the pitches are flat and large and the night sky is phenomenal there's no light pollution the star gazing was amazing. There is a shop on site it didn't have what we needed but they had a lovely selection. Sadly that's all the positives I have. When we arrived at the campsite we had driven for several hours and in need of a bathroom - truly I've never experienced a smell like it. They have open urinals made from what looked like a plastic bottle and they made me feel so sick I couldn't use the bathroom at all they were enough to put anyone off camping. Had I of realised I would of brought our own but I didn't and so had to make a make shift bathroom which wasn't a great start. I was also frustrated with the lack of hot water to wash dishes. The grass hadn't been cut and it was raining so both mine and my husbands shoes were soaked through setting up the tent and they remained that way for our whole holiday. The whole thing just felt unkept such as plugging in the electric had nettles all around it so had to find some of our own scissors to cut that away before we could hook up - the camp dog is left to roam free and as such does his business wherever he likes without supervision again in longer grass this left another camper with dog mess on her shoe. Each pitch has it's own bins which is ideal but they weren't clean so wasps had taken over. We were also expecting a quiet site after being sent the "rules" but people were playing music until 4am and walkers were playing music at 7am. We are part of the greener camping club and totally support eco sites and im not precious about compost toilets but this one needs work, if you take anything from my review and decide to still go please do yourself a favour and take your own toilet and kettle.

Lovely, friendly site in beautiful location

I stayed in the pod here which was comfy and great value for money. Site was green and leafy with facilities in easy reach. The larger field which was nearby had amazing views and access to a cooling river. Loved the eco feel to the place - excellent composting toilets, food waste recycling, solar panels and they are building a passive house farmhouse. Oh and lots of goats, a donkey and a lovely happy dog. Highly recommended- I will definitely come back

Lovely site on working farm

Stayed for one night last weekend, good directions to site and on site. Quiet site which is what we were looking for, plenty of space. Love the goats and pigs and Mr Pickles, great shop with local produce and good recycling facilities

Friendly, relaxed, back to nature.

This has become our favourite campsite. The kids adore the stream, we love the relaxed feel & stunning views & nearby walks. Even ventured to a brilliant pub in the village this time. The animals are a great attraction for the children & the onsite trampoline was a big hit. Pleased about the addition of more loos, the thing to make the whole experience perfect would be showers please. Thank-you for putting up with us all again, you are great hosts who let their visitors just get on with it and make wonderful memories.

Well kept, welcoming, lovely spot.

We spent two nights on an electric pitch at Wookey Farm in August. The facilities are really well kept, the electric pitches have a nice bit of privacy, a picnic bench and a firepit. Child play is encouraged with swings in at least four spots around the river and a little goat hide/play house. Our children loved watching the goats being milked and meeting the kids, pigs and Mr Pickles the donkey. The farm shop is well stocked with camping food, logs and delicious goat cheese. The lack of showers wasnt a problem for just two days, but for a longer stay might have proved more challenging. Even a cold outdoor shower would be fine. The only thing that was really missing was hot water for washing up. We loved our stay at Wookey Farm and would definitely visit again.

Quiet stay

The site is lovely, and pitch sizes are big! Kids loved petting the animals, especially mr pickles the donkey! Lovely walks around, and would highly recommend the eight o bells pub (I’d recommend booking). Only down side is the compost loos, nothing compost about it, the smell was horrendous so used our camping toilet which was only going to be used for night time and the owners dog. Priddy is lovely, but when it roams around free, expect the unexpected dog poo in places you may have to pick up.

Quiet beautiful eco campsite

We stayed in Meadow 2. Huge space, very peaceful, just lovely. Loads of room for kids to run around and love that they do proper recycling. The toilets were clean. Great walks from the campsite into the Mendips and short hop across the fields into the village. Worth not having a shower for a few days.

Such a lovely farm!

We had a wonderful night’s camping stay at Wookey Farm! Our little pitch was perfect for our tent and surrounding areas were so beautiful. We also really enjoyed petting all the farm animals and having good chats with everyone who worked there! Will definitely be back!

Lovely site, lots of wasps, no showers, very smelly long drop toilets

Had a lovely week on this site, the owner helpfully made us wasp traps as they were everywhere on a sunny morning. Was expecting compost rather than long drop toilets, smell is pretty rank. I'm sure there's a reason. Hadn't realised no showers, teens could use the stream which was lovely. The location is a very strong feature, close to Glastonbury, Wells, Wookey Hole, Cheddar, Ebbor George. Great caving at Rock Outdoors nearby, Goatchurch. Also abseiling, canoeing, lots of local cider and great wine very nearby, at Fenny castle

Lovely place to stay. Want to come back!

This is a great place to get away from it all. We stayed on campsite 2 which was a spacious meadow, and had a spot near to the river. At night, clouds permitting, a good view of the stars was possible and there was no disturbance from other campers. The coffee hub was a lifeline, serving great quality, proper strength coffee and with the ability to order fresh pastries via email the night before. The farm shop was also well stocked and had some nice touches such as ceramic products and organic cotton t-shirts. Wookey village was a short walk away (11 minutes) with great local cider and ale and WiFi! We were still able to get data on the campsite (bonus if taking a teen-ager!) I particularly liked the compost toilets and the system for sorting refuse. All the other campers were friendly and considerate and it was a family site, so lots of children playing (which was lovely to hear). There are a lot of things to do. We managed to briefly see Cheddar Gorge, Ebbor Gorge, Wookey Hole and a little of Wells, but only stayed for two nights and feel there was so much more that we didn't get to. It's such a beautiful area. Definitely on the list to return to. And will be coming back to the campsite.

Tranquil, friendly family camping

Two-night stay in meadow 1 with electric hook up. Great, relaxing family vibe and plenty of space for campers of all ages to enjoy without being crowded at all. Everyone really friendly (including goats and pigs!). Lovely shop with provisions and beautiful pottery for sale. Easy, level walk to Wookey Hub and only a few miles to Wells with so much to see; like Bath without the crowds!

Wonderful Wookey

Love this place! We always stay in the Meadow field, for an easy-going, spacious camping experience within view of the mendips. The river Ax runs around the field edge and is littered with rope swings – perfect for freshening up on a hot summers day with the kids. I love how the owners really allow you to explore the farm freely and have a hands-off approach, which is so refreshing these days. There's so much more too: coffee and pastries on the weekend; compost toilets and hot water for washing up (!!); goats, pigs and donkey; onsite shop for amenities, firewood, cheese, etc. It's well located too, just an hour from Bristol, 5mins down the road to Wells if you need a supermarket, and Glastonbury and Cheddar are not far away either. The perfect Somerset camping experience!

Lovely campsite - we will be back!

It’s the second year in a row we have visited this camp site and we absolutely love it. You can interact with the lovely animals (donkeys, pigs, sheep and of course goats). The campsite is well kept and the compost toilets are lovely and clean, and not even that smelly! A new addition for this year is a farm shop selling local produce, including some lovely ales and ciders, goats cheese, and even some beautiful pottery. You can get lovely fresh coffee provided by the Wookey Hub every morning; essential if you’re camping with young children. I’m pretty sure we will be back next year. I would definitely recommend this campsite if you prefer a quiet, family - friendly environment.

We have just returned from 3 nights stay in our van at Wookey. So impressed with the laid back tranquility of the place. The pitches are generous and private with trees between each one. The site is well thought out in terms of it’s environmental impact with the composting loos which were pristine and recycling facilities at each pitch. The shop is handy and the owners friendly and welcoming. We left feeling very refreshed and like we had truly escaped the hustle and bustle

Heat beating stream

We’ve just returned from a great group camping weekend at Wookey Farm. It was so incredibly hot, but the lovely stream provided the children with hours of fun and the adults a shady place to cool down. The compost loos were a good standard as were the washing up facilities (although open to the elements, so maybe not ideal when it’s raining). A really great camping trip had by all.

Very cute and comfy camping ground

We stayed one night at Wookey Farm and it was a lovely experience. It was our first time camping with our 3 &1/2 year old and it was so easy and family friendly. The pitches are really nicely spaced with trees and shrubs between each one so they feel really private. The facilities were all well organised and the toilets were very clean. One of the best parts was that they have pigs and goats and a donkey. The animals are really chilled and friendly so it's great for the kids to be able to stroke them and get to know animals. We watched the goats milking at 8:15 which was fun. We didn't have time to explore the walks but there looks to be a great walk down to a stream and Well's is pretty close by for sightseeing. Highly recommend.

Beautiful site and surroundings

We were pleasantly surprised when we visited Wookey Farm. The pitches are spacious and private and there is a tranquil stream and swings for the kids. We watched the goats being milked every day which was a great bonus.

Beautiful well maintained campsite. Very peaceful and relaxing stay

The peace and quiet and sound of the birds

Idyllic, relaxed camping spot.

Gloriously laid back and instantly relaxing place to be. The smaller pitches are a bit tucked away in gorgeous glades, the bigger ones are more open with lovely views. The river is gorgeous and great fun for the kids. The bacon from the site shop was totally delicious!

Countryside calm at its finest!

We have been camping for many years and this has to be one of our best experiences. Admittedly, the amazing weather helped but the location, lack of hassle and straightforward nature of the campsite really made it. Fab pub, Ring of Bells, a short and blissful walk away across glorious meadows, as well as a well stocked local shop and onsite provisions just made everything so easy. Thank you so much for a lovely relaxing stay.

Great venue

The campsite is well organised. I love the idea of the labelled arrivals board with each persons name on their pitch. It gave me confidence that when I got back late at night I would still have a pitch for the camper van!

Fantastic restful break surrounded by beautiful countryside!

Set in a peaceful, secluded spot, with ample facilities and space for children to roam around. Just a short walk from the village hub cafe/shop, where they sell everything one needs along with fab coffee and cakes. You can also order a food parcel to collect from the hub upon your arrival. The quaint city of Wells is easily accessible, and the food market on a Wednesday is well worth a visit. We loved watching the friendly goats at feeding time, and the goats milk, and blackberry & apple jam from the honesty farm shop were delicious. Will be back again soon! Highly recommend a visit!

Wonderful Site

What a great campsite you could be anywhere in the world. This is a perfect campsite for exploring Somerset. Easy to find and excellent local facilities within easy walking distance. The Wookey Hub shop is perfect for finding some lovely local fresh produce and the Ring O Bells pub has some delicious local ciders (other pubs also located in the village but we didn't visit these). The campsite is super clean and refreshingly eco-friendly with composting loos and plenty of access to freshwater. It's a no-fuss, super friendly, campsite which is beautifully well kept and in the perfect location.

We used to stay here when it first offered camping and had returned with friends many times. After watching City life to Country life we were reminded of our happy memories staying at the goat farm, so we booked in and although the weather was not great we had a fantastic stay. It has changed a little bit (the trees have grown and so have the children!) but it is still a beautiful location with your own private pitch and fire pit. Now with your own wooden bench to enjoy. The goats are great to hang out with on a rainy day and my son spent hours in the barn, it was interesting to watch the milking and chat to the people working there. We went for some lovely welly walks in the rain, plenty of public footpaths and in the village is a cafe and shop with some about delicious homemade cake and really friendly staff. Ian and Sarah are just the nicest site owners and we will look forward to visiting again.

Lovely peaceful campsite in beautiful surroundings

We stayed here for two nights in a little pitch in the first field. We had a nice sheltered spot. The site is beautiful and well kept, with spotless facilities (compost loos, washing up areas). There is a tiny well-stocked farm shop with produce from the goats (who you can go and visit). We cooked up sausages & eggs from the farm for breakfast which were delicious! We enjoyed some lovely walks in the hills, and visited the Wookey Hub cafe several times (really friendly staff, excellent cakes!) The Ring o Bells in Wookey was a great spot for dinner (very good pub food, great value, lovely staff). It was a lovely couple of days, and I would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend!

What a lovely peaceful spot

We camped in the Meadow field by the stream and it was really peaceful and in a very beautiful setting. No road noise at all, the field is huge and so even though a few people staying everyone was at a good distance. The farm shop was great with their local produce and their sausages quite delicious! We'd recommend to anyone looking for a rustic, very tranquil site.

Lovely site - plenty of soace

Contactless payment and well organised - paid in advance social distancing email instructions. Camped by river. Fab views. Loads of space. Thoroughly recommend

Fabulous Site

We had a great stay in late September. Only two tents in a massive field, with a lovely stream running nearby. Bliss. Saw lots of wildlife, bought some great eggs from the farm shop. So many gorgeous places nearby to visit: the Mendips, Glastonbury, Wells. We were only away for 3 nights, but it was a real opportunity to re-charge. Fully recommended!

Great site will definitely return

Spent a lovely relaxing weekend on campsite 2. We loved the spacious feel as we had plenty of room between us and other campers. The kids loved the goats and getting soaked and muddy in the stream. Toilets and recycling were fine and well maintained. Will definitely be back next year for more as we didn’t do much exploring of the local area.

Wish we had stayed longer.

I was dubious about staying somewhere without showers and with composting toilets but this is a real gem of a site. Welcoming and safe. Very easy to find pitch on arrival and the most amazing sheltered pitch with own bins Inc recycling and food waste (v clean), fire area and easy access to toilets that despite composting don’t even smell and are clean with lovely hot water at taps and mirrors etc. Took a solar shower to hang in a tree (cost £5 at go outdoors). Kids loved it. Lots of space for running around/ball games etc. Felt very safe Covid wise. Has little shop with goats products and firewood open 24/7 with honest box and can pay by bacs transfer. Goat milking twice a day and donkey on site. Short walk to cafe and pub and at weekend local cafe comes to site for breakfast and amazing coffee. (Can text until 10pm night before for pastry orders and can pay contactless card). Little river running by second field and this has lots of rope swings. Great for small family getaway. (Kids 6 and 3) thanks so much.

Lovely peaceful break

Fantastic peaceful site. Large pitches are great with your own fire pit for those chilly evenings. Amazing walks & pubs right on your doorstep. Spent 4 nights here and we did not want to leave. Pickles the donkey is super cute and the goats are very funny. You must try the goats cheese from the loyalty shop on the farm! Site is maintained very well. River is perfect for paddling, our dog loved it to cool down. Recommend Berrow Beach it was beautiful. We will be back and will be bringing family. Thank you Ian and Sarah!

Long wet grass

We arrived after 2pm to find the blackboard had not been updated, so had to make contact to find out which pitch we had. Pitches are big but long wet grass is not pleasant when trying to pack away an awning. Many dogs where off lead and not really well supervised including the hosts dog that followed the recycle collector around. Not a fan of each pitch having its own fire pit, not a fan if people washing their hair at the fresh water point and also not a fan of someone going through every piece of recycling at your pitch. Not a well maintained site at all, and will not return. We stayed 5 nights and never saw a grass cutter in use even though the grass was very long.

Response from Wookey Farm

Hi, Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry our site wasn't to your liking. It's always a dilemma about when to cut the grass, because when we have cut the grass, we've had complaints either about noise or about lots of grass cuttings being trailed into tents and caravans. Thank you, Ian and Sarah

Lovely place to stay

We spent two nights in the pod at Wookey Farm and it was absolutely splendid. Beautiful place, really well maintained and in a stunning location. Very friendly goats and donkey, excellent walks right on the doorstep. Fantastic having a fire in the evening, wood and firefighters very reasonably priced in the farm shop. Also highly recommend the goat’s cheese. Only downside to the trip was the bed in the pod, very thin and uncomfortable mattress as well as noisy and squeaky. But next time I would just bring a mattress topper or similar. Otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable stay that I’d recommend to everyone.

Wonderful campsite!

A lovely spacious and relaxed Campsite. Our pitch was generously sized with easy access to the electric hook up. A proper picnic table and fire pit made for lovey warm evenings and family meals, especially those including their home produced goat halloumi, delicious! The horse box shop and morning coffee shop are great. My daughter loved being able to watch the goats being milked too. We would love to go back for another short break, the addition of solar showers would easily make it viable for a longer break.

Perfect 👌

We wanted a one night stop off on our way down to Cornwall, booked here for 3rd sept for the night, on arrival onto site found our name on blackboard at entrance to tell us where we were pitched so very easy, So well done wookey farm 👍, pitched up could of had a fire 🔥 if we wanted as facilities to do so already in place, didn’t use the WC as had our own so can’t comment on that, very nice pub at end of road Within walking distance called ring o bells had a lovely meal and very pleasant staff. Can be assured we will be back ! Well done again 😃👌

Quiet & Restful two nights camping

Stayed 2 nights over August Bank Holiday the Sunday & Monday night. We were in the big field - plenty of space & very quiet at night. Loads of space for kids to run around & have their freedom. Toilets were very clean & well looked after. Great recycling - big plus & could see lots of effort goes into making this work. Brought our own fire pit as requested in the welcome instructions & bought wood from the honesty shop. Second visit & would go back again. Thank you !

Great Campsite

Plenty of space, great location and all the necessary amenities!

Perfect camping pit stop for all the family

We stopped over for one night while trying out a camper van. There were no issues from booking to leaving. Although the weather was not great the experience was. The kids just ran off to play in the stream and on the swings with other children on the camp site.

Fantastic family fun

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. The pitch was perfect for a family, lots of space, an area in the trees for a campfire, clean toilets nearby and lots of space to play. The kids loved taking their inflatable kayak down the river, and going to visit the animals. We will definitely be back again.

Nice views, facilities need work.

Nice field with views, the little shop was good, kids enjoyed the stream and seeing the goats milked. Pubs nearby were friendly. Toilets were to be honest pretty grim. Some of the worst I’ve seen in 15 years of camping. Mentioned to the cleaning staff and they did improve a bit. Little in the way of provision for COVID compared with 5 other sites we visited in the last 2 weeks. No showers either for some reason (we did know that in advance). Shame really. This site could be good but needs a bit of work.

Lovely campsite

We stayed in August and the leather was mixed! We had an electric pitch and loved the hedge and trees between our pitch and our neighbours either side. The picnic table and fire pit were awesome. I was a bit dubious about the toilet situation but they were actually really clean, and didn’t smell as much as I expected :) Being able to go into the barn and visit the goats was lovely. And the honesty shop is fab. Nothing we didn’t like. Definitely highly recommended.

Lovely relaxed campsite

This is a lovely, laid back campsite with plenty of space for the kids to go wild. Have a stream running all the way around it with rope swings to boot meant the kids never got bored. The owners are pleasantly hands-off and trusting with a great little honesty shop and the coffee shop every morning was great! Our only issue was that the toilets were not that great being somewhere between compost loos and portable loos and they had an odd ridge under the seat which got filled up with wee and made them a bit gross! However, I understand getting the toilets right must be a difficult job. Generally we loved it though. Great value. We'll be back! Many thanks

Great pod!

We booked very last minute knowing that the weather was due to be poor, so we were delighted to see that the Pod was available! Nestled in the corner of the first camping field, with its own fire pit and woodland seating area, the pod was warm, cosy, and perfectly proportioned. It was clean, everything worked and the bed was easy to prepare from the dining table and bench seats. With all pitches being around the edge of the field there was plenty of space for everyone. Fellow campers were friendly and there were no issues with noise or nuisance. The composting toilet facilities were an experience but we appreciate trying to have as little impact on the environment as possible. They were cleaned daily and did not spoil our experience. Overall, a great stay and we would highly recommend the site.

Lovely and chilled

Beautiful campsite - we loved how relaxed and friendly it was. Gorgeous stream and swings and space to play and it was lovely to be able to have a fire. The kids loved the animals as well. The only downsides were the rain and the wasps which couldn't be helped! we'd love to come back again

Lovely family friendly campsite

Very well set up to be covid secure. We loved our riverside pitch and the children had a great time on the rope swing. Plenty of space to relax and play and beautiful views, as well as well maintained toilet and washing up facilities. Great to be able to see the goats being milked while we were there! Thank you 😊

Delightful site

I would really rather not tell anyone about Wookey Farm as I'd like to keep it my secret!!! We stayed for 4 nights and really loved the place. Our pitch was spacious and not too close to our neighbours. The compost toilets were really clean and Covid measures were in place which everyone adhered to. We felt very safe here. The campsite was beautiful, peaceful and within walking distance to the lovely village of Wookey, its pub and hub. We will definitely be back again. Thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyable weekend

We had a lovely weekend on our weekend stay at Wookey Farm en route to Devon. Back to basics camping set on a working goat farm with beautiful scenery. Our children loved visiting the animals and the sense of freedom, lovely little shop selling local produce and a lovely pub in the village. The recycling system and separate bins for waste certainly got our children’s attention and they continued ensuring they recycled correctly on our other stops in Devon and Cornwall. The pitches are a great size and plenty of space In the middle for games. The compost toilets were a novelty that took a little getting used to but I was surprised how clean they were and how little they smelled! We had a walk into Wells which is a lovely bustling little city it took about 50mins (with a 4 year old)! All in all we would defo revisit if we were in the area.

Brilliant family friendly site

Lovely site, very environmentally conscious and was set up well with covid safety measures, we felt very safe and socially distanced. We paid for EHU and had our own cosy spot with trees on 3 sides of us, our own personal camp fire area with little log seats, and our own small bins for rubbish, recycling and food waste. We were lucky as well to be positioned fairly close to the drinking water tap, washing up station and the compost loos which were very clean and well maintained. Lovely selection of animals which kids loved, the donkey in particular was very friendly, all just a couple of minutes walk from us, plus a lovely little stream for paddling. We will definitely book again 😁

Overall a nice place to stay

We (4 adults and 1 child) stayed 2 nights was a nice place to stay we liked that you can bring your own fire pit and you had wood forsale onsite aswell as the goat milk cheese ! Also a few animals for the kids to look at also close to wookey caves and a few other things so was perfect for us

Lovely relaxing site

Just returned from a very relaxing and laid back week at this lovely working farm. The grandkids loved the goats and other animals. The river was also a huge hit. It was great to be able to set up camp where we wanted and we had plenty of space. Would definitely recommend.


Despite this being advertised as a family friendly campsite, we were kept awake by a large noisy group. The website specifically ad be raised no large groups so we thought this would be a great option with 2 little ones. However, we had little more than a couple of hours sleep and were so annoyed we left first thing in the morning. We were approached by a member of staff in the morning to ask if we had heard the noise which we had of course. No way of an apology just a shrug of the shoulders and we were told the noises group will be asked not to come again. This doesn’t in any way make up for an awful night for everyone else staying there

Response from Wookey Farm

I am so sorry you were so disturbed by the group. I went around as many campers as I could to talk about it as well as the group involved and apologised to everyone.  I'm sorry if you were the first person I spoke to before I was aware of how much the group had disturbed their neighbours and I'm so sorry if you felt I shrugged, it wasn't my intention at all and I wish I had spoken to you more and understood how upset you were. Everyone else staying had been disturbed but felt it hadn't in any way ruined their time with us, even the poor family who were right next door. We don't allow groups but pitches can hold up to 4 adults and they had all booked individual pitches for 4 adults. I realise you will be put off wanting to stay with us again but hope you understand that it was very unusual for our campsite and as you can see from the other reviews, most of the time it is very much a family friendly campsite with lots of people commenting on how quiet and peaceful it is.

Cosy little Camping Pod

Brilliant little camping Pod, warm, clean, dry makes 'camping' easy. Great location to enjoy both the on site, peaceful location and for travelling to and exploring local tourist spots easily. Loved the home grown produce in the onsite shop and the fresh coffee in the mornings. We also enjoyed the obligatory marshmallow toasting around the Pod's firepit. Seriously just got home and booked again quick! 😂🤣 Reluctant to review because this little gem needs to stay a secret.

Spacious pitches.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night, but we had a fabulous time. The pitch was spacious, also the added bonus of having a picnic table and firepit with our pitch. Kids really enjoyed feeding the goats and having a splash in the river, plenty of room for ball games. Great location, close to Wells, Street and Glastonbury. We'll definitely return at some point.

Really enjoyed our stay in field 2 and stayed an extra night. A great location for nearby attractions. Fantastic site for families and dogs. Highly recommended!!!!

Relaxed family-friendly campsite

The kids loved the stream and rope swing and there was just generally nothing to complain about. Not too crowded, good loos, flat ground, nice and quiet etc. Just remember to take your own firepit if you're in meadow 2.

Loved the site. Great location.

Relaxing stay at Wookey Farm in the open field. Loved the location and great for dogs and families.

Amazing holiday

We found it an extremely enjoyable stay and we all agreed that we would love to come back. We enjoyed having such a spacious field and loved that we could go and visit the goats any time in the day and watch the milking. The location was great - very peaceful, with a lovely view and an ideal base for exploring the area. The river was the perfect touch to the campsite and the whole family loved paddling in it. A couple of us were initially skeptical about the compost loo but soon realised it was fine!

Wonderful little campsite

Just returned from 2 nights in field one with an electric hookup, despite all the pitches being full, the size and spacing means that it felt far from crowded. The inclusion of a campfire area rather than a log burner with each pitch was also a major bonus! The compost toilets should not be seen as a reason to book elsewhere, they were cleaned daily while we were there and there was little to no pong despite the heat! They were in fact a damn site better than most toilet blocks! The lack of a shower blocks is the only downside, while a flannel wash is ok for a few days, any longer during warm summer and we may have been pushing the limits of the generous pitch size with our own smell! Overall the campsite was impeccable and the little extras like the farm produce shop and morning coffee shop give it a very friendly feel. The local pub is a short walk and seems well supported by the locals which is always a testament to a good place however if you plan to eat there a phone call is advised as most tables were reserved despite being mid week! Definitely a camping experience we will return to in the not to distant future!

Wonderful few nights

Just got back from a wonderful few nights at Wookey farm, we opted to camp in field one with and electric hookup and the field was very well laid out. Despite being pretty much full there is plenty of space between pitches so it doesn’t feel crowed at all, the addition of actual campfire areas for each pitch rather that a log burner is also a wonderful touch. The goats and Mr Pickles were also a great attraction for our 4 year old! We only visited the ring of bells in the village but found it to be a really tidy and friendly little place that is clearly a popular local, a well supported pub is always a good sign! Let down slightly by the lack of a shower block if you’re staying longer but a bowl of hot water and a flannel will see you through for a couple of days! The compost toilets are regularly cleaned and tidy and despite the heat there is very little smell certainly better than the big blue thunder boxes in some places! Will definitely be coming back!

Lovely eco camping experience

My daughter and I love Wookey farm. We have stayed two years In a row and we always have had a lovely time. Every morning my daughter would go and say good morning to the animals and goodnight before bed. She also enjoyed seeing the goats being milked. The river is perfect for a dip and play when it is warm, although my daughter went in her Wellies in the rain and loved it! There is a lovely sense of community also. Its been difficult this year as we've had to social distance but last year my daughter made lots of new friends to play with. The little cafe in the mornings was also a great touch for my morning cuppa and an oat milk hot choc for my daughter (who has a dairy sensitivity!) the compost toilets are brilliant and always clean. The campsite is very eco friendly and conscious of waste which always gets my thumbs up from me! Would defo reccomend for families! 😊

Excellent campsite for our young family

We stayed in the large open camping field surrounded by a stream for paddling and rope swings. We camped with our friends and young kids and cooked on an open fire each night. The kids loved helping to feed the goats and watching them being milked whilst the adults loved the morning pop up coffee shop and all the cheese and meats produced on the farm. Will definitely look to book again with a larger group

A true getaway!

Wookey Farm is the best retreat from a hectic lifestyle! Secluded pitch for our tent we were able to enjoy total relaxation. The dogs really enjoy the long walks, river and playing in the communal area. The campsite makes you slow down and enjoy everything around you - family, cooking and even washing up!! Andy's coffees in the morning are a real treat and he is just so friendly and I was able to order things I had forgotten and they arrived at the campsite the next day! A wonderful campsite and we will be visiting next year, for our 4th year running.


A fabulous stay. The pitches were beautiful, spacious, very private, with their own campfire and recycling bins. The big shared grassy space was wonderful for children to make friends and run around. The goats were a huge hit, we didn't miss a single milking session. Mr Pickles the donkey enjoyed his ginger nut biscuits and a stroke between the ears. There are lovely walks around, including the longest and deepest ford in England (cars beware, but great for a dip!) Don't be put off by the compost toilets, they were the nicest we've come across, with lovely decorations and surprisingly minimal smell. Andy's mobile cafe was a treat, and you can even order groceries to be brought directly to the campsite. Thank you Ian and Sarah We will most definitely be back!

Big open spaces and chance to have own camp fire! Perfect

Camping in pitch 2 was perfect as it was big and open with lots of space for our pitch and fire pit. The rope swings, shallow river and animals around the farm kept the children entertained. Lovely selection of goats meat at the shop, great for the bbq. At at the end of the day we were allowed to light our own fire pit to make it a proper camping experience.

Sensational, stripped back and simple.

We were at this brilliant place for 3 nights middle of July. Family of 4 and well behaved puppy. The atmosphere is cool, calm and collected. Surrounding views were great. Met owner Ian who was great and very thoughtful. We were in camping field 2, which is enormous, with only about 7 others. There was ample space for many more (and still keep social distance!). Rope swings along the river were great for the kids. COVID measures put in place were sensible and not over eager, with the washing up and toilet facilities cleaned regularly, and plenty of hand soap and sanitiser. No showers, no hot water and compost loos, makes this an authentic, stripped back chilled camping experience. Reccommend buying some of Wookey Farm's Goat Brie and eating on toast, while sitting around a warm brazier (up-cycled from a washing machine drum!) that we hired from the owners, along with a big bag of kindling logs. Walked Cheddar Gorge, had a cream tea in Wells, ate a quality pub supper of fish/steak chips at the Ring O Bells (10 minute walk). Floated hand crafted raft down the River Exe which was next to where we pitched. Had a picnic up by the Glastonbury Tor. Didn't go to Wookey Hole as not much of it looked like it was going to be open (due to Covid). All in all a lovely simple, healthy few days with no Tech!

Absolutely brilliant. Perfect place for kids & to relax

Wookey farm is our favourite campsite. We come here every year to see the baby goats being born. Sarah is amazing letting the children really get involved. My daughter helped birth triplet goats a few years ago. A life changing experience! As an only child, it is great for my daughter to have the goats. She loves animals and is occupied all day looking after them and petting them. Everyone is so friendly at Wookey. We have made great friends everytime we have stayed. It is so nice to be able to make a fire. The firepits are really good and wood sold on site. Loads of good walks nearby. Tree swings and the river. Who needs more?

We had an absolutely fenomenal time at Wookey Farm last week. Just what we needed after 6 months in lockdown in London. Beautiful nature walks, super clean camp site, stargazing and Sarah's scrumptious goats Brie cheese, made on the farm. We can't wait to go there again.

Scenic and safe

We were nervous about going to a public campsite post pandemic, but we needn't have worried. There was lots of space for everyone and the facilities were largely outdoors and immaculately clean. The animals make a lovely place to visit and we enjoyed the produce from the farm shop. There are some beautiful walks nearby. We were particularly impressed by the lengths the site goes to regarding composting and recycling. They weren't just paying lip service, they really care. We had a most enjoyable weekend and can't recommend the place enough.

large open site with plenty of space

Great site, quiet, and close to various attractions/towns to explore whilst staying

Nice, if a little pricey

A nicely maintained small site with good views (although not from the pitches themselves). £22.50 per night (electric pitch for caravan, 2 people, plus dog) feels expensive, given the lack of showers. I greatly admire the owners' determination to recycle as much as possible, but we wondered whether that could be achieved with fewer bins? A great place for families, with the farm open to children, and the river nearby. Also nice to have the option of lighting fires.

Great small site and Eco too

We really enjoyed this site in our campervan, it's very nicely laid out on a level field. As mentioned it does have hookup but has no showers, though it wasn't really a problem for our two night stay. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Spent the day in Wells which has a fabulous cathedral and well worth a visit. A 10-15 minute walk to the local pub which had a great Sunday evening roast. Highly recommended

Perfect couple of days

Lovely, chilled campsite. Basic facilities but exceptionally clean. Within walking distance to 3 local pubs. Excellent base to explore the Mendip Hills and surrounding area. Would definitely visit again.

A relaxing camping experience

This was our last stop on our camping holiday and honestly wish we could have stayed longer. On arriving at the site there was a chalkboard with our name next to our allocated pitch so there was no awkward fumbling around trying to find someone to ask. We had an electric pitch in campsite 1. The pitch was massive and separated from the neighbours by bushes and each pitches own campfire area. The plots have their own recycling bins too which was convenient. There is a barn on site with a variety of animals in that kids can feed and pet. In the morning they let them help with the proper feed and really took the time to answer their questions, at no point did the kids feel like they were in the way. There is a small honesty shop on site with homemade produce, logs and firefighters which was handy as we hadn't got any. There is one point that should be mentioned - the compost toilets! I've got to admit they weren't the nicest experience but I did appreciate the ethos behind them and they were in keeping with the nature of the site. They were cleaned regularly without chemicals and you get used to them. There are suggested walks to take if you want to explore the local area and games and books to borrow should you feel inclined. The stream is great for the kids to play in (don't forget your wellies and nets). Overall a relaxed site that was just what was needed at the end of our holiday. We were so impressed and hope to visit again in the future.

Really great weekend! Toilets were cleaned regularly and for compost loo’s were decent! Lots of space to pitch in campsite 2. Farm was good fun! And river nice to cool down in! Wish there was a shower because it was so warm! If it wasn’t we wouldn’t have minded so much!

Fantastic family getaway

4 families camped in the meadow for the bank holiday weekend, we all had a fantastic time. The facilities (long drop compost toilets and washing up area/drinking water) are simple but very clean, well kept and more than sufficient for a chilled camping weekend. The children loved the rope and tyre swings, wading through the river and the big open spaces to play and explore. They also loved going to see the animals and feeding the goats. 5 mins walk to the nearest pub. Supermarkets a few mins drive away and the campsite was sign posted and easy to find. Would highly recommend and all 4 families have agreed that we will return!

Peaceful, low key, Beautiful.

We stayed for two nights at this gem of a site. We pitched up in the meadow field which was very quiet, our nearest neighbours at the opposite end of the field nestled in the hedge! We were extremely lucky to have glorious sunshine and the children enjoyed access to the paddling stream and playing on the rope swings. The goat milking was another hit with the children, who kept an eye on the time to make sure they could go along and watch (and help!). The honesty box system in the shop, which was in a little box, was super and we sampled the local goats milk and cheese. The weather meant that the open air washing up area was not a problem, but I can imagine in the rain we would be less likely to enjoy the pot washing experiences!! Composting toilets kept clean and well stocked with all the necessary. Would definitely stay again, although for us, in a tent, 2 nights is the maximum we would want to do without a shower! Super stay, thanks so much.

A wonderfully relaxing campsite

We camped in the meadow and loved the open space, shallow but exciting river, rope swings and of course the animals. The kids loved petting the goats and pigs and watching the goats being milked in the morning followed by frozen yoghurt made with goat milk. The compost toilets were spotless, if a little aromatic (goes with the territory) and the lack of shower facilities meant we got to experience washing in the river. Brought back memories of camping from when I was a kid. Can’t wait to make a return visit.

Lovely, simple, eco friendly but we chose an unfortunate night to stay

We loved Wookey farm for our 1 night stay, we stayed in campsite 2 and it was great just being able to choose where was best for us to pull up and camp. The children loved the river swing and splashing around. They loved watching the goats being milked! A lovely little farm shop, and the composting loo's were great. Unfortunately for us very close by there was a function on with very very loud music/band and fireworks. The music went on until the early hours and dogs every where were barking, also because of this. I know this is not the campsites fault but because of this us or the children did not sleep at all. This is why I have not given 5 stars.

Old Skool camping

Had a fantastic night away under the stars. Quiet, peaceful site with a lovely atmosphere. A beautiful river for the kids to play in, lots of space to run around and play. No pressure just simple camping. Campsite one, pitch seven and eight are really private and have the sense of wild camping. Great having the animals and the farm shop too. Only addition that would be good is a shower, but for night not a problem!
Aug 3, 2019 by Sarah Tucker


What a lovely spot! We booked one of the secluded small tent pitches, tucked away in a glade in the trees. The pitch was perfectly shaded from the hot day, but equally would have sheltered us if it was windy. My two children loved it - building a dam in the river, the rope swings in the trees, and watching the goats being milked. The facilities are basic but that was all part of the charm, as we only stayed one night I didn't mind not having a shower!

Perfect anniversary getaway

Quiet, peaceful and yet buzzing with life. We loved that our campsite was secluded and calm and cool and totally flat. The first night there was loud music coming from a field miles away and the owner of our campsite tracked them down and asked them to shut it off, then came round to apologise to us in the morning although it clearly wasn’t his fault. I consider that above and beyond, and very kind of him. The night afterwards he made sure the same thing didn’t happen and it was blissfully quiet and we got a brilliant nights sleep. We loved how eco conscious everything is and the compost toilets were always kept clean and stocked. The site is right next to a beautiful river and long fords, huge fields for kids to play in, and a really welcoming farm at the top which you can get involved in if you fancy it! Thankyou so much, just a lovely lovely experience all round.

Great night away!

We loved our stay at Wookey farm! What a beautiful relaxing place to stay! We took our 2 children and dog and camped with my sister and family. We stayed in the meadow field and there was so much space there! The highlight for the kids was that the river was next to us and they spent most of their time playing in there! They also enjoyed watching the goats being milked! The compost loos were kept in very clean good condition and there were large sink areas which was handy. Really lovely place to relax, would recommend!

Lovely chilled, back to nature camping trip!

My 2 year old thoroughly enjoyed her first camping trip at Wooky farm! She loved being able to run free and explore freely! She loved meeting the goats and paddling in the stream! She loves water and it was so hot so the stream was perfect for cooling down! The compost loos were great and the recycling points were fab, made recycling nice and easy. We will definatly be visiting again! 😊

We enjoyed our stay for a stopover. It was a very quiet peaceful spot. The site has everything that you would need (apart from showers). The pitches are spacious with trees between each pitch. There are areas to BBQ. The eco loos do smell very ‘natural’ but that is to be expected! We bought apple juice from the farm shop which was delicious.

Super chill

Our children loved Wookey Farm Campsite, and so did we! The river is perfectly shallow for small ones to potter about in, and my children spent hours collecting hay on the other side of the river to make child sized nests with. It was perfect for our school camp, with more than enough space for the children to run wild and the parents to kick back and relax. The goat feeding and milking was lovely, and we treated ourselves to the rhubarb and vanilla frozen yogurt - mmmm. Thanks Wookey Farm, we had a great stay.

My 5 year old daughter and myself loved Wookey Farm

We camped for two nights @ Wookey Farm with Sefton Park Primary School. It was just me and my Daughter on the two nights but my daughter had the best time, This was her first experience of camping in my opinion no electricity is a must on a camping trip. She thoroughly enjoyed the River Axe, cooking with Daddy on a single burner and toasting marshmallows by the evening campfire. And to top it all off we had a display from the red arrows on the Saturday. She loved going to see Mr Pickles and exploring the farm. My daughter commented on the beauty of the night sky (something which is very difficult to see in the City). I will defiantly advise people to use your campsite Kind regards and thank you very much for a great couple of nights John.

This place is as near perfect as you can get - quiet, birdsong, stars, campfires , huge picked with a little coppice and campfire spot next to each one. Each pitch also has its own recycling area, emptied daily so super clean. The nearby River Axe is good for adventures. Cycling onto the flat but oh so beautiful Somerset levels is easy. Wookey, Ebbor Gorge, Cheddar, Wells and of course Glastonbury are all so close. And of shopping is your thing, the Clarks outlet village at Street is 20 mins away. Would definitely return.

Lovely large pitches and nicely set out with fire pits and easy access to bins etc. It felt well organised and there was the right balance of knowing owners are on hand/near but not 'on patrol'! Really enjoyed being able to see the farm and goats and the swings by the stream were a plus for the children (and adults). We plan to come back for longer next time and explore the area more.

Goatally baarilliant!!

We have camped in both fields on god wonderful site and loved each time. Friendly welcome and clear signage as to where you need to be. Great produce to buy and a lot of very happy goats to see. Close to several good pubs,a great cafe and beautiful mill even less than 10 minutes from a Waitrose! What more could you ask for?

Wonderful child friendly atmosphere

We loved our stay here. The children made dams in the stream, fed the goats and were even allowed to help with the milking. In the evening, they toasted marshmallows over the camp fire. They even found the compost toilets fascinating! Childhood adventures straight from Enid Blyton

Wonderfully relaxing

We stayed for two nights on a large pitch with electric. The pitch was perfect. A really good size with a picnic table and a place to have a fire. The kids loved going and feeding the goats and Mr Pickles and spent a lot of time playing in the river. Before going I was worried about the compost loos, but they turned out to be much nicer than I'd feared. The biggest downside is the lack of showers, so I don't think I'd stay for longer than a couple of nights. The atmosphere on the site is amazing and being 10 minutes drive from Wookey Hole was a distinct advantage. I'm looking forward to visiting again.

Friendly and fun eco farm camping

We chose Wookey Farm for a family gathering and had a brilliant time. The kids loved visiting the goats and pigs and helping at milking time. We also loved wading in the stream and the rope swings! The grown ups enjoyed the pubs and cake in the village and the open all hours horse box shop which we regularly raided! Sadly we didn’t acquire the taste of goats milk ice cream however but the other products were lovely. The eco focus of the campsite is really impressive. The only improvement I can think of is to perhaps add taps at washing up stations in Campsite 1 and solar showers. Then we would find it hard to leave!

Glad Glades

We camped in one of the glade pitches, nestled in the trees like that, we felt we had a lovely bit of seclusion all to ourselves. The site is very well looked after. No litter or mess and very tranquil. The goats, pigs and Mr Pickles are great to see but not too close to disturb. It’s very much a family site and it’s was good to see so visitors kids and dogs having fun. We didn’t have a camp fire but plenty did and it’s nice to see them across the site. The loos are well kept and looked after. Compost loos get a thumbs up from us and its good to see them on site. The pitch we had had good turf and pegs went down easily. Being able to park alongside and have no worries about getting stuck in mud was a bonus. We would have given five stars if the round house and the pizza oven were up and runnng.

Peaceful, spacious and eco friendly

We totally fell in love with this campsite and so did our 10 and 15 Yr old boys. If it had showers (solar?) we would stay a week and give it 5 stars. Great for a few days stop over

Great site

Would definitely stay here again if you like a good rustic site to just relax where the kids can run around this spot is ideal, compost toilets not to everyone’s taste my first time using them but where fine & very clean no showers on site but we didn’t mind this as knew this before we booked & loved being able to have a camp fire in the evenings.

An idyllic campsite

I can't recommend this campsite highly enough. Not even relentless, torrential rain could detract from the happy, relaxed atmosphere of the place. We stayed in one of the large pitches. Everything is laid out perfectly, and the facilities, though basic, are clean and more than adequate (the composting loos are much nicer than "normal" loos we've encountered elsewhere). It's an absolutely idyllic place for children: the stream, rope swing, open playing field, and most of all the animals provided endless interest and adventures. The staff on the farm are extremely welcoming and patient (we met Ian, but also two young men who were working with the animals). We're looking forward to returning.

Wonderful place

How traditional camping on a farm should be simple and delightful.

Wonderful Campsite

Absolute Gem of a campsite. We only stayed one night but we had a fabulous time. The campsite is well thought out and there is plenty to explore. My eight year old loved seeing the animals. Managed to visit the local pub which served lovely food and made us feel very welocome.

We loved the space, the stream and the composting toilets

This was our first time at Wookey Farm and we'll certainly be camping there again, and next time we'll take the grandchildren. A beautifully simple, spacious and well thought out place with lots to do nearby.

What a beautiful place

Possibly the best campsite I've been to 5 stars

Quiet freindly camp site

Really enjoyed our stay. Very friendly and well run small and quiet camp site. The children loved watching the goats being milked every day and meeting all the other animals. Short walk to several local pubs that serve great food.

We stayed two nights at the beginning of June 2018. It's a beautiful spot, and everything has been thought through. Your name is on the notice board to tell you where to go when you arrive. Your little part of the field is semi-sectioned off with small trees, with your own fire space and recycling point. You can buy wood, goats cheese, milk etc from the little honesty shop. In the morning, go and watch the goats being milked. The loos double as a mini-tourist information point. On the question of loos: they are compost loos (though with running water to wash your hands) with an initially alarming set up for automatically "sorting" your deposits! They are in a nice clean-feeling wooden hut; and you feel worthy. And, to be honest, I've never visited a campsite loo, especially a more conventional porta-loo, that doesn't make you cringe just a little - and once I was used to these ones, I felt quite at home. (I've rather gone on about loos there!). Also to note, there are no showers (if the owners could find a way to install those, the place would be completely perfect). We're definitely going back.

Beautiful, quiet site

What a lovely place, free from urban noise but obviously not from animal noise both from the farm animals and wild birds which is such a pleasurable aspect of being in the country . Larger than .average pitches( each separated by a strip of wild vegetation creating sense of privacy) with a picnic bench and bins for recyclable and non-recyclable waste. Several fire pits. Sarah is very friendly and invited us to look around the farm sheds and watch the goats being milked. The on site shop sells their own produce including goats milk and goats meat. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you

As you drive down the little lane to get to the campsite you truly enter another world where time stands still and you can breathe pure relaxation. The campsite (which we have been visiting for years) is our most favourite place to escape.if you have children this is the perfect place for them to be allowed to properly play free. The rope swings over the little shallow river,building dams ,fishing with nets and lighting campfires then cooking marshmallows should be every child’s camping heaven . No PlayStation or x box!!! Because there is no playground other than nature the children (and parents)usually end up playing rounders or other games in the middle of the field. You are allowed into the farm to visit the goats and you can buy goat related products. The owners Sarah and Ian are unobtrusive but have always been very helpful and friendly if needed. The pub Ring o Bells in the village is within walking distance and looked after us well(also catering for gluten free) There are fabulous walks from the campsite with great cooling off spots for your dog in the river.this is such a beautiful part of the world The compost toilet is a compost toilet and if you’ve got your own porta loo you will miss this experience ! See you soon Wookey Farm. We love you and we love camping xxx

The whole embience

Firstly what a beautiful location. The site it’s self is excellent. I am not a fan of marked pitches as if in groups it can hinder the closeness and vibe, however that said this work. Massive area in the middle for kids of all ages to play, surrounded by 15 pitches all with fire pits. Pitch 1&2 have a lovely fire pit in a wooded area. The stream isn’t a lovely walk. We walked on from the obvious stopping point and found some lovely spots. The Wookey hub idea and the honesty farm shop are brilliant the eco friendliness of the site are truest the way forward. This is what all campsites should be aiming for. Prices are reasonable in the day and age. The location to attractions in the Rea is brilliant. All in all a very lovely weekend, a very forward Morden thinking campsite, that is beautiful and quaint.

Eco campsite with goats and firepits

A lot of thought has gone into this campsite. Each hook up pitch has trees dividing it from the next, its own recycling bins and a fire pit. Anyone who knows compost toilets appreciates that they can smell, but these are the cleanest I have come across. Great location near Wells and a ten min walk to a pub that serves good food and a cafe, the Wookey hub, that serves home made cakes and big pots of tea. The goats are beautiful ... you can also just call in to see these and buy goat products (cheese, milk, soap etc). Very friendly and helpful owners. We came after heavy rain at Easter and it was muddy on the field so they let us camp near the barn and sorted out hook up and fire pit. Would like to come in summer when they use their pizza oven!
