Campsite review: Wells Touring Park
An editorial review of Wells Touring Park
Introduction to Wells Touring Park
Wells Touring Park makes for the ideal location to explore the historic city of Wells as it is only a 25-minute walk away. This five-star, award-winning, open-all-year campsite is in a rural location with views of the Mendip Hills and is for adults only.
I particularly like the on-site licensed coffee lounge, a nice place to relax and enjoy a drink and maybe even sample some tempting cake, with the bonus of free WiFi. Reception stocks basic essentials and the bus stop outside the site gives easy access to surrounding towns if you’d prefer not to walk or drive.

What the campsite has to offer
There are 60 hardstanding pitches, on a gently sloping site, all with electric hook-up. An optional full-service pitch has the addition of a fresh water tap and grey water drain.
The facilities block has underfloor heating, with showers and privacy cubicles, plus there is a separate shower room for disabled guests. Additional amenities include a covered washing-up area, freezer, launderette and drive-over motorhome waste point. For anyone with pets, there is a small exercise area and a dog shower, too.
Where to visit

The smallest of England’s cathedral cities, Wells is one of my favourite places to visit – the cathedral itself certainly has the wow factor and the elegant medieval city centre hosts lots of independent shops. Across from the cathedral is Vicars’ Close, a residential street of medieval houses, and you must visit the moated Bishop’s Palace, set in 14 acres of landscaped gardens.
Another plus point for this site for me is its proximity to Wookey Hole, which is just over a mile away. Originally famed for its stunning show caves and underground chambers, in keeping up with the times there are now over 20 family-friendly attractions here, but I visit purely to marvel at the colourfully lit mysterious caverns. I’d then definitely recommend you walk two minutes up the road to the Wookey Hole Inn for some tasty food, too!
