 As Ratty review said most things,a very nice,clean and friendly site.How-ever,don't judge by the google earth image as the new road layout and hardstandings make the site a lot more civilised.Would be a great improvement when the new shower/toilet block is finished.

Owner very helpful on everything asked like parking in Wells,dog walks etc.

Overall a good site and when new block is completed,a very good site.

 We have just returned from Haybridge after a 10 day stay, we found the campsite to be very clean and well presented.

The pitches are mainly hard standing on gravel with tarmac roads around the site and very well lit at night by post lighting.

The site is mainly aimed at motorhomes and caravans although there is a small field for tents as well

Whilst we there there was a lot of work being done to complete a new toilet and shower block, at present the old block although dated is adequate for your needs with no queues and cleaned daily.

There is a small shop on site for the essentials and some camping equipment although shops including a large Tesco are only a mile from the site.

Haybridge is an ideal location for lots of varied days out with Wookey hole and the city of Wells only a short distance away, slightly further afield is Glastonbury, Weston Super Mare and Street only a short drive

The only negatives for us was the lack of play area for children and no dog walk however the owner told us that he is planning on extending the site where these will be included.

We will definitely return to Haybridge park at some point as this would be a very good winter campsite.

 As a site it is great if you want to make sure you avoid the mud of a British summer. The toilet block looks like it will be spot on when it is finished and a nice new block always adds something to a site.

One thing that is a shame though is that there is nothing on site for the children to do. There is no play area and judging by the plans on the wall in reception there won't be either and the open field mentioned is going to be filled with cabins. If you have a van, awning and car on your pitch there isn't even room to play next to the van. I also didn't notice an area on the plans for a camping field, so you might want to check that if you plan to visit. There is nothing stopping tents using hard standing but it doesn't feel quite right.

Having 3 children I doubt I will visit this site again as the only place they have to play is on the road, at that is a major factor. I do think it would make a good adults only site, but I don't think it is any good for kids.

Pros

Good Hardstanding pitches
Close to Wells
New toilets should be good.

Cons

Too much Hardstanding
No play area
Might not be geared for tents in the future.
Current toilets not great.
Limited shop hours.

Reviewer: Ratty 225 reviews from this member

 This site is located just 1 mile from the centre of Wells and offers all the facilities one would expect of a site.

The owner appears to have spent money over the winter period terracing the slight slope and putting in tarmac roads, plenty of EHU points, fresh water taps aplenty, fire extinguishers, lighting and a new facilities block, due to open in early May '09. There is still a field with just grass, which is what appeals to me, but after the last two summers I can understand the hardstanding pitches, some with grass for the awning, some with gravel.

The EHU was plenty powerful enough to have a small 1.2kw heater on in the awning in the evening. The site has a small shop selling the essentials, from bread to bacon, milk to marshmellows, etc.

The facilities were clean and well presented with two toilets, two showers and three urinals in the mens and 3 toilets and three showers in the ladies. Plenty of hot water for the sinks and showers, so made washing and showering a pleasure on the cold mornings. The shower temperature was not controllable and at times was pretty hot.

There is a washing up area next to the facilities block with plenty of hot water and also under shelter should the weather be against you.

The site has a barrier which requires an electronic card for entry and this is available when you check in.

The nearest town is Wells and is 1 mile away up the hill, where you will find all the normal shops, including a Spar and a large Tesco, plus plenty of other interested shops to wander around. In Wells is the magnificent Wells Cathedral and other historical buildings that make interesting viewing.

Further afield, yet not too far you have the delights of Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury Abbey and Tor and of course all the other attractions of the area.

The nearest pub would be in Wells, however we did not visit so cannot comment.

There was not Three 3G coverage at the site, but Orange did get a 3G signal, Vodafone did get a 3G signal also. Once the new facilities block is completed there will also be Wi-Fi on the site too.

A nice site and one that I may return to when in the area, however there is lots of choice in this part of the world and just too many campsites to visit and I like to try something new. The only negative for me is too much tarmac, but that is a real bonus for lots of others.

Reviewer: Snag20 2 reviews from this member

 The site is very clean and hedges and grass kept in good order.

The toilets and shower facilities all very clean, stocked with toilet paper.

Although it rained we had a great time, the owner very friendly, and sociable.

We were very happy and our children were very comfortable there.

Will definitely visit again. We were a party of 3 vans and the owner was happy for us to set ourselves up as a 'U' shape, which was great for our kids.

Reviewer: Cauliman 11 reviews from this member

 We booked to stay at this site on a Friday night on our way to Devon for the Bank Holiday weekend.

There still seemed to be some spaces upon our arrival so it would seem to be a good bet for a late booking.

The toilet block was OK and the site was well kept. It was also quite reasonably priced.

The real advantage of this site is that it is within walking distance of Wells which is a really beautiful if very small city.

The Cathedral with its famous clock is well worth a visit. The city was quite lively on the Friday night without feeling threatening.

I would certainly go back for a stop over or a short break.

Reviewer: Slyboots 5 reviews from this member

 We stayed here over August bank holiday weekend, as we had a last minute change of plan and this was the first site in the area we managed to find which wasn't already booked up. We decided that this was probably though due to their almost complete lack of advertising rather than any major problems with the site and thankfully we were proved right!

Even on bank holiday weekend this site had plenty of room. The fields are all slightly sloping overall but we had no trouble finding a level enough area to pitch a family tent; there was a large empty area in the middle of the field for the kids to play ball games. The site was very quiet especially at night, though I suspect this was more a function of the type of people staying there rather than any active policy of noise control on the part of the owners. There was some noise from the nearby road in the early morning but nothing too bad. In fact the noise which woke me up was the horses in the next field 'harrumphing' right beside our tent!

This is definitely a 'get what you pay for' site in terms of facilities, but none the worse for that. We paid 7 per night for a family tent with no hook-up, although we got the impression that their charging was a bit ad-hoc so you might be able to bargain even cheaper if you want to try. Washrooms are basic but adequate and clean. Although there were only 3 showers and 3 toilets in the ladies, I never had to queue. One gripe was that there was only one washing up sink, for which there was sometimes a queue. It was situated right next to the chemical disposal, which was not very pleasant. There is no shop, play area, dog walk area etc but these are all available nearby.

In general, if you are happy to go back to a more basic style of camping at reasonable cost, then this site could be worth a visit. 


Reviewer: Ian SL

 We have just returned from a week's stay at the above site. We had the pleasure of having seen the site before, even though we hadn't stayed on it. The 3 fields are all sloping. We were in the 2nd part, the middle field. In hindsight, it might have been better to have pitched in the upper field, at the top of the site. Not only would we have enjoyed a better view across the valley, we would have found it easier to decamp. We had a lot of rain during the week, and the ground was sodden. I found it hard with my FWD car to pull the caravan off the pitch, even though the car has traction control. The general condition of the site was good. Grass was mown regularly, it was clean and litter free. The toilet/shower block was old, but for all that, was serviceable. The gents part boasted 2 showers, 2 'sit-downs', 3 'stand-ups' and 2 washbasins. The ladies faired better with 3 showers, 3 cubicles and 3 washbasins. A small word of warning., on one occasion, while in No. 2 shower, early in the morning, I got pinned in one corner by the very hot water coming out. It only lasted a short time before it got to a reasonable level. I had my normal moan about the lack of places in the showers to put things, like somewhere dry to put my glasses and the floor getting wet, so nowhere dry to dress. There is no shop on site. The nearest shops are in Wells, about 5 minutes car drive away. There's a fairly large Tesco's in the centre of the town There is no playground or dog walk either, so it's a basic site. The lady owner/warden was apparent by her absence. We saw her once when we arrived (she only came up to see if we were who she thought we were). Our second sighting was when I managed to 'test' the trip on the electric hook-up by 'testing' the equipment in our new caravan !! only 8 amps BTW. The third time was when we went to find her to pay for the pitch (this was a week later !!) The area was a good base for the local attractions Cheddar Gorge, Caves, Jacobs Ladder & The Mendip Hills Wookey Hole Caves Wells Cathedral Clarkes Village (for the ladies) at Street Glastonbury and it's Tor. (the Old Abbey is worth a visit) The Kennet & Avon Canal (we cycled from Bradford-Upon-Avon to Bath) Bath & West Show at Shepton Mallet (early June) Plans to return ? None at the moment. It's a shame that the weather was so bad the week we were there. No matter how hard one tries to be objective, the rain did make a difference. We won't be able to think of Wells now without remembering how wet it was. Pitch price was low we felt at 6.50 PN including awning. There didn't seem to be a charge for our electric hook-up ?
