Bell tent and tipi 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 pair of furnished bell tents and luxury tipis, 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.
