A tents-only, dog-friendly site with campfires allowed in Somerset.
When it comes down to it, what do you really need from a campsite? For many of us, the answer is a flat pitch, a water supply, and somewhere to go to the loo. If you fall into this camp (pardon the pun) then you are going to love Loves Hill Camping. This simple summer campsite in Somerset is as laid-back as they come; it’s tents only, dog friendly and campfires are allowed. Situated between the Cotswolds and the Mendip Hills, Loves Hill offers a rural, edge-of-village location that means you can relax in the countryside but still be within walking distance of a pub, a shop, and a chippie. The campsite is essentially a large, level field, some eight acres, that’s been mown into shape by owner Nick to create a place to stay for a month in the summer. As befits a place that’s usually used to grow grass for winter feed, it’s as eco-friendly as he can make it with composting loos and hot water showers with waste water destined to irrigate nearby fields. You can drive to your pitch and camp where you like, thanks to a free-style pitching policy. And while Nick is on hand to welcome you, tell you what’s what and sell you logs for your campfire, you are generally left to enjoy the peace and quiet of the setting   – however you see fit. There’s plenty of space for kicking a ball about but there’s a tempting footpath that leads off site too. Follow it for a mile or so and you’ll reach the banks of a nearby river, The Cam Brook, with a bridleway that’s part of the Limestone Link long-distance footpath. The two ends of that route are in the nearby Cotswolds and Mendips Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where there’s plenty more walking on offer. Bath is within 10 miles of site, Wookey Hole Caves and Longleat Safari Park within 20.

Nick the Owner was absolutely fantastic, extremely welcoming and generous with his time. This is Nick’s first season and boy what a start. The layout was perfect, different areas mowed out, allowing family and friends to be together but allowing plenty of space between fellow campers. Love Hill has that easy relaxed vibe. Compost toilets were really clean, and regularly cleaned. Showers one of the best I have used on a campsite. Washing up area with two sinks. Plenty of water taps on site, never too far to walk for water. Recycling and General Waste bins, plentiful on site and emptied regularly. Fire pits available to hire and Nick sold seasoned logs. At the weekend Nick had fresh coffee, croissants and pastries for sale, which was really appreciated. You could leave your phone with Nick to charge for a small fee. We went to Wells which is not too far and is well worth a visit, especially the Cathedral. I would also say it’s worth going to Book Barn International, selling second hand books and records, it also has a coffee shop (less than 10 mins drive). Unfortunately I would highly recommend this Campsite, I say unfortunately as I want to keep it as a well-kept secret. Thank you Nick for looking after us so well. Looking forward to seeing you next year.

This is a well thought out site, with plenty of space and an eco-friendly ethos. The owner, Nick, is friendly and welcoming, the toilets are clean and well stocked. The shower block is one of the best I've seen on a campsite, and the basics are well covered. Sinks for washing up and stand pipes for drinking water. Plenty of rubbish barrels for waste and recycle barrels as well. The site is flat for the majority , but the further along you go the better views you get. Dogs are welcome and ours loved the attention she got. Definitely a site I would revisit. 18-22 Aug 2021.

Nick the owner was fantastic! Never too busy to help or answer questions. Tent pitch layout was lovely and had a bit of a wild camping feel. Fab showers , composting loos, washing up area ( no hot water) water pipes at regular intervals with recycling and rubbish bins ( collected regularly.) Tea/ coffee and croissants available on Saturday and Sunday am. Fire pits with wood . Very easy and relaxing. Our lab Guinness had a fantastic time as lots of walks around. Definitely booking for next year !

This is a great little campsite, with everything you need and nothing you don't. There are clean composting toilets, warm showers, and washing up sinks on hand, but apart from that it's all hay bails, firepits and good vibes. There's plenty of space around the pitches so you can camp with friends and family and have space from others, which also meant noise was never a problem. There are firepits and wood to hire, and tea, coffee and croissants available to buy in the morning. Nick was super friendly and helpful, even happily jump-starting our car when we needed help! Can't recommend enough, it's just a shame it's not open for more of the summer!

Our two families stayed for two nights at Loves Hill and had a excellent stay. Nick has created the perfect vibe at the campsite with his laid back and chilled out style. We were met and greeted on arrival with an explanation of how stuff worked. We chose a spot and pitched…simple as that. The compost toilets were in a very clean state and didn’t pong. The showers were warm and clean. There was a small washing up area that was never that busy so always available. In the morning there were fresh pastries and coffee available to buy - lovely touch! There was also kindling and logs available to buy for the fire pit (could hire those too). All-in-all, a perfect way to spend a couple of days chilling out. We will be back.

Loves Hill Camping is a seasonal, family-friendly, no-fuss campsite with a focus on low impact, environmentally sound holidaying. Opening July 28th to August 24th.Situated just 20 minutes from the centre of Bath and only 30 minutes from Bristol we are perfectly placed to help you get back to basics and start enjoying the great outdoors.

Or just take your time to soak up your surroundings, slow the pace and get to know the walk to the village pub.
