About Wookey Farm

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.

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.

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.
