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 trio of furnished bell tents, 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.
FacilitiesBell tents feature a proper double bed with bedding, bedside tables, a wood burner with plenty of logs, a hammock, deck chairs and picnic table, a trunk for storage and a cool box for food, lights, rugs and floor cushions. Roll out beds for children can be added (up to three per tent). An outdoor kitchen set has a huge grill pan for the ultimate fry-up and all the plates, cutlery and crockery you need. For all guests there is a communal bell tent with games and toys in for children, composting toilets and gas powered outdoor showers and a provisions store with a fridge, freezer and local produce available to purchase. There's also a communal fire pit.
Suitable ForGlamping only (though additional tents are sometimes considered if they are part of a larger glamping booking). Ideal for couples and families. 1 dog per tent permitted (on a lead at all times).
