Nettwood Country Breaks

UK England South West England Somerset Wells

The views over the Chew Valley are worth admission alone, but with first-rate facilities and the friendliest of owners, Nettwood ticks all boxes

To cast your eyes upon the Chew Valley is to gaze upon nature perfection. If there's a more idyllic scene than the undulating patchwork of lush, verdant sheep-dotted hills and wooded combes that surround the tranquil waters of Blagdon Lake, we're yet to find it. Nestled within the wider Mendips Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it'll come as no surprise that this is prime camping territory. With such an array of fantastic spots to pitch up in, the choice can often be beguiling. But for the best of bases, first-rate facilities and views to die for, look no further than Nettwood Country Breaks.

Nettwood Farm is 210 acres of Somerset livestock farm-cum-camping retreat overlooking the sprawling Chew Valley Lake (the largest in the South-West). Run by the lovely Griffin family, this is the ideal setting for getting away from it all with the family. There's a relaxed attitude to life here with 20 'pitch where you fancy' spots alongside other more formal grass pitches that come fully wired. The grass field is well-kempt and on an ever-so-gentle slope (although most pitches have been levelled out). Fringed by some 30 acres of woodland, campers pitching up in springtime will be treated to an amazing show of technicolour as the forest floor explodes with vibrant purple bluebells.

Kids will love this place too. The woodland copse is prime den-building estate and when they're not busy exploring the copse or kicking a ball about the fields (that's right – ball games allowed!), there's always Nettwood's resident sheep to meet.

Location, Nettwood has it all: easy access to the Mendips; expansive lakeside vistas; woodland walks around East Harptree; the famous caverns of Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole. You can stroll the quaint cobbled streets of Wells by morning, before following the afternoon to the seaside-kitsch at Weston-super-Mare. And when evening dawns, there's fewer more relaxing places to reflect upon the day than Nettwood Farm. All the easy-going owners ask is that you keep the noise to a minimum after 10pm out of respect for your neighbours. But truth be told, after a day's spent exploring the gems of Somerset, a contented slumber beckons under the star-spangled blanket of unblemished Somerset night sky.
