Walnut Tree Bunkhouse. Shepherd's Hut and Camping

Add Walnut Tree Bunkhouse. Shepherd's Hut and Camping to your Itinerary

Walnut Tree Farm Bunkhouse and Camping


This is a quiet campsite in a lovely secluded setting, on an organic farm. The herd of Friesian cows and calves are usually in view in the surrounding fields. Fresh eggs are usually available. The solar-powered showers are very efficient. Wood for campfires and barbeques is always available.

The kitchen is fully equipped, but food at the local pub (15 minutes pleasant walk) is good and very reasonably priced. There is also a selection of pubs with a varied range of good food in Chew Magna, 3 miles away.

The farm also hosts its own Bunkhouse which is set in its own quiet secluded spot. There are two pleasant bedrooms with a 3/4 bunk in each, a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable sitting/dining room, shower room and lavatory. It also has efficient air-sourced heating.

The charming Shepherd's Hut is also situated in a lovely location with good views and has a double bed, wood-burning stove and a calov gas hob.

The Bunkhouse and the Shepherd's Hut are for adult accommodation only.

The location is perfect for fishermen; being situated just 2 miles from Blagdon and Chew Valley Lake. There is sailing on Chew Valley Lake and Walkers can enjoy the beautiful Mendip hills.

Bath and the small city of Wells, are approximately 25 minutes away, as are Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole caves.

Ashton Court on the outskirts of Bristol (the host of the International Balloon Fiesta) is just 15 minutes away. Longleat is approximately a distance of an hour and a half.
