Homestead Park is a quiet & scenic adults only park nestling at the foot of the Mendip Hills in the historic village of Wookey Hole.
We have a camping area of approximately 2 acres with over 30 pitches for tents. Because of the location of the site we only accommodate tents.
The picturesque camping area is bounded by the River Axe, and composed entirely of level grassland with tarmac roads, screened and sheltered by hedges and trees.
The location of outstanding beauty is ideal for walkers plus also within easy reach of many inland attractions, as well as both the North and South coasts of Somerset, Dorset and Devon.
The camping site is open from Easter until the end of September.
