Ebborways Farm is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for the most authentic, 'back to nature' camping experience possible.
This campsite in Somerset is found in the heart of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to Cheddar Gorge (a 15-minute drive away), the Wookey Hole Caves (less than 10 minutes from this campsite by car) and the small cathedral city of Wells – Wells is about a 15-minute drive away.
When you stay at Ebborways Farm you’ll find yourself staying in a field with other campers. Drinking water and a compost toilet are available to use, but other than that you’ll enjoy as basic a camping experience as you possibly can!
Ebborways Farm is a seven-acre field open for tents, caravans and campervans, and it is open all year round. It is just a short walk outside the village of Priddy – for refreshment, head to the Queen Victoria Inn, a friendly and welcoming pub that is just a five-minute walk from the campsite.
There is enough to see and do across the Mendip Hills that guests staying here could quite easily fill their holiday without leaving the area. In addition to the popular tourist attractions mentioned above, guests also enjoy heading out to explore the Mendip Hills at their leisure. Walking, cycling and horse riding are all brilliant ways to get around. And while Ebbor Gorge might be less well known than Cheddar Gorge, this National Nature Reserve is just a handful of miles from this campsite and is a 63.5-hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Less than 30 minutes from Ebborways Farm by car is the world famous town of Glastonbury – and there's much more to it than just the (almost) annual music and culture festival. You can also visit ancient Glastonbury Abbey as well as the Tor, or even the Somerset Rural Life Museum.
Or how about a day out at the beach? If you're pitched at Ebborways Farm on your camping or caravan holidays in Somerset, you're about three quarters of an hour by car from the seaside resort of Weston-super-Mare. Enjoy time at the beach, play crazy golf or take a walk along the world famous Grand Pier. In fact the pier could be a day out in itself, with rides to try again and again, as well as places to eat and drink – there is even a 4D cinema. Maybe you'd rather an evening at the Playhouse Theatre, or you fancy a day out with a difference at the International Helicopter Museum.
The city of Bristol is also under an hour's drive from this campsite in Somerset. With its rich maritime heritage and revived harbourside area, the SS Great Britain, the awe-inspiring Clifton Suspension Bridge and the independent shops and cafes in nearby Clifton, not forgetting the zoo and the cathedral, there are so many things to do here, whatever you are interested in and whatever age you are.
A camping or caravan holiday staying at Ebborways Farm might be back to basics, but it is sure to be full of fun, as there is so much in the surrounding area to keep you busy, no matter how long you stay.
