About Wookey Farm

Suitable For

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

Nearby

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.

Fabulous!

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.

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!

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.
