Nestled in the small hamlet of Launcherley, we have a quiet idyllic site overlooking the smallest medieval city of Wells, 1.5 miles away.
Not only are we so close to Wells, there are also stunning views surrounding the site - A glorious panoramic view of Wells with its magnificent Cathedral, set against the backdrop of the Mendip Hills, which is located in an area of (AONB) outstanding natural beauty. It looks amazing both day and night. Or the famous, majestic, Glastonbury Tor surrounded by the enchanting Somerset levels and Moors.
Alternatively there is the view of Launcherley Hill: historically it is reputed to hide a dragon in the woods, sleighed by Bishop Jocelyn during the 13th century, that returns every 50 yrs. Today the sheep or cows roam over the fields, and at the moment, happily, there is no sign of the dragon.
You may like to visit the lovely Bishops Palace in Wells to find the mosaic monument found beside the moat, which was created in 2001 that commemorates the slaying of the Worminster Dragon.
The caravan site itself is grassed with mostly level pitches. We have electrical hook-ups, space for awnings (our price include awnings), an enclosed hard-standing area for dry recycling, drinking and grey water taps plus a chemical waste disposal point.
This is a Caravan Club member site, with up to 5 grassed pitches available. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate dogs. ( No aversion to them, just our neighbour's preferences for his sheep.)
The sites location is ideally suited for a quiet relaxing stay surrounded by unspoilt countryside, rich in wildlife and wild flowers. Or for exploring this wonderful Heritage area or for visiting the many festivals, fairs and concerts throughout the spring and summer.
Alternatively for the more adventurous there are many walks, including a public footpath 500 yds along the road that takes you directly into Wells, approximately a 25min walk, or cycle routes and many other activities close by.
Please see our Wells events which is part of the Surounding Area page of this website for more detailed information and we hope lots of useful links for your stay.
There is an ever-lasting wealth of things to do in Somerset which means "land of the summer people" so we hope you enjoy every minute.
