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.
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.

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 nice long weekend
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!
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! 😊
A lovely quiet spot
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.
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.
Wonderful family friendly campsite
Beautiful campsite with heaps of space for kids to play, campfire areas were amazing in the late afternoon/evening. Loved the big open space in the middle this was great for the kids to all play. You can go in the paddocks with the animals and paddle in the stream too.
Utterly idyllic campsite
We LOVED staying at Wookey Farm. It's quiet, clean, and well laid out. The fresh goat's cheese in the shop was delicious, and the goats and other animals were so much fun. It was beautiful and calm and serene - we loved every minute and will come back again!
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.
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
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!
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
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.
How traditional camping on a farm should be simple and delightful.
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
WARNING ...YOU ARE ENTERING ANOTHER WORLD!!!
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!
