Moor View

UK England South West England Somerset Wells

Luxury bell tent glamping in Somerset's Mendip Hills that's perfect for romantic breaks or peaceful family getaways
There’s something special about the way the grass grows at this off-the-beaten track glamping site. Pimpled with yellow buttercups and fringed by wild cow parsley, its lush, colourful layers are symptomatic of the surrounding countryside, where the Mendip Hills spread north into the distance. Mown pathways and open clearings have been carefully mown into, like the streams that mow through the hills around, and there’s plenty of space for campers to run wild. It all fits subtly within the scenery. Just as any good campsite should.

Rightly, however, Moor View don’t refer to themselves as camping. Oh no. This is ‘luxury canvas camping’ where the focus is not just on the Somerset surroundings but also on ensuring guests have a thoroughly comfortable stay. Inside their trio of furnished bell tents, guests will find proper double beds with sprung mattresses, a wood burner with logs to keep it fuelled and an extra large hammock outside for lazing in the sun. There’s also an excellent little outdoor kitchen with everything you need, including a cool box for food storage with ice packs you can replenish in the campsite freezer.

The atmosphere is what really stands out. The small-scale of the site makes it ideal for couples and families who simply want to laze around and enjoy the peace and quiet. There’s a fourth mini bell tent with games and toys for little ones, while a communal fire-pit is ideal for that authentic camping touch and also provides a nice social element. The owners, too, contribute a personal touch, on hand with any local recommendations when you need. They can even arrange a hamper of local produce from the nearby farm shop in Priddy, so that you have food when you arrive.

If you fancy walking to the village yourself, it’s only a short stroll away and rewards you with a picturesque village pub and quintessentially English summer events on the village green, such as the Priddy Folk Festival. It’s also the starting place for some good local walks. For the best of the scenery, though, it’s worth venturing down the road to famous Wokey Hole and touring east through dramatic Cheddar Gorge. As you head beyond the campsite you’ll also find stunning views across the Somerset levels to Glastonbury Tor in the distance. Private though the site may be there really does seem to be something to see in every direction.

Gorgeous glamping in a beautiful area

My husband and I stayed at Moor View for two nights with our three young sons and we all had a fantastic time. The site is in an incredibly picturesque location - surrounded by fields and lovely walking spots. It's also really close to Wookey Hole, which is a fun (if expensive) place to go for a day trip. Moor View is really lovely - the site and the yurts are immaculate. The yurts are really nicely decorated with thoughtful touches and the hammock next to the yurt was wonderful. The kitchen is small but equipped with everything you need - fridge, toaster, kettle and crockery. The compost toilets are really clean, as were the showers. Although the yurts are fairly close together, we felt like we had our own space and the kids enjoyed using the cricket bats, croquet set and frisbee. Kathryn was very helpful and friendly. Would really recommend a stay here (especially for those like me who are more glampers than campers)!

Wonderful glamping getaway

We loved our last minute getaway for our first glamping experience at Moor View. Wonderful set up with all the little extra things thoughtfully provided such as hot water bottles, cosy sheepskin rugs on the deckchairs and even a tub of spring flowers on the tent’s decking. It’s eco friendly and the sawdust compost loos are clean and easy to use (and they don’t smell!) once you get used to the double pan system. Showers were good too and the luxury kitchen shed with microwave, kettle and toaster plus fridge and freezer space for all campers was wonderful. Great position for exploring the fabulous area. Tons to do with Wells on the doorstep, Cheddar Gorge down the way and Wookey Hole for the kids too. Stunning views and a decent pub too.

A little slice of heaven!

All the thoughtful little touches to make it a home away from home made our first glamping trip perfect. Comfy beds, warm quality bedding, floor cushions, great outdoor kitchen, solar lights, and the outdoor shower (my biggest fear!) was simply divine! So peaceful and the views are amazing. We cooked on the brazier every chance we got - our full english breaky has never tasted better! We even rustled up popcorn and marshmallows which we shared with other families. Weather was wonderful for our stay (thanks for being kind Mendip gods!) so we didnt need to use the wood burner inside, as much as we wanted to. Snug as bugs with extra blankets if needed. Kitchen hut had everything you could ask for from spare candles to power sockets and outdoor games like boule, tennis and croquet. Our hosts were super friendly and ensured a very welcoming and relaxed feel to the whole place. They've not left a stone unturned and have thought of everything to make your stay simply perfect. Can't wait to go again!

Cold, but pretty

This was our first time camping, which is why we opted for glamping. The tent was beautiful and the surroundings stunning. Unfortunately the week we decide to stay the weather had turned and it was rather cold and windy (9 degrees overnight!). There was a wood burner in the tent, but this being our first time camping we were not great at making a fire and there were no instructions on how to build one or keep it going. Due to our fire issues we also didn't manage to cook on the outside fire, but Wells is close enough with plenty of restaurants and take aways. The bed was super comfy and with all the extra blankets provided we managed to stay warm enough for a good night sleep. An extra floor bed had been made up for our son and even with that in the tent there was still plenty of space around. The hosts are very friendly and a wealth of information about the local area. All in all we had a fun and adventurous weekend!
