Camping and Caravanning in and around Bristol

Get the best of both worlds by visiting the city then heading out to the scenic countryside on Bristol's doorstep, where you can sleep under the stars in your own postcard-perfect setting.

Unzip the tent and wrap up by the fire while gazing out at the green hills of Coastal North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and the South Cotswolds and Rural North Somerset and the Mendips. Whether you plan on staying in a tent, yurt, motorhome or a caravan, cool camping and retro caravanning is back in Bristol.

You’ll find a range of camping options within easy reach of Bristol and the region’s top attractions.

The multi award-winning Brook Lodge Farm offers a unique rural camping experience with two paddocks catering for individual pitches and groups nestled below the Mendip Hills. Bring your own tent, caravan or motorhome, or rent one of their bell tents and a fire pit to make it an extra cosy stay.

Keep the whole family busy with a stay at Basecamp in the heart of the beautiful Mendip Hills, just five minutes from the M5 motorway. Surrounded by ancient woodland and with dozens of activities on option at Mendip Activity Centre on the same site, this spacious campsite is perfect for families, small groups and adventurers.

If you like the idea of camping, but still want a luxury experience, then glamping could be the perfect middle-ground. Stylish safari tents at The Camp at The Wave provide comfy mattresses in proper beds, as well as a loo, a small kitchenette where you can make your own tasty treats, and a log burner in the lounge area, where you can relax after a surf.
