Without a doubt the best campsite we’ve used. If you want to camp in a natural, idyllic and stunningly beautiful setting, visit Wytch Wood. The site is amazing to explore, surrounded by trees and there is every amenity you need. It’s a joy if you’re after a proper camping experience.

What a stunning campsite. So peaceful and private with lovely large pitches in the woodland. I'm always happy to share facilities but having our own toilet on the pitch was a great bonus! Owner was super friendly and we enjoyed the extras arranged for the jubilee weekend such as a curry night and cream tea. We will definitely return!

Such a beautiful campsite! Elise is really friendly and welcoming and has some exciting things planned for the site. We stayed in our campervan on pitch 6 which was really roomy but private and had great views all around. The toilets where clean and the showers where lovely, warm and powerful. Cant wait to go back 🙂

Had a fantastic time at Wytch Wood campsite. The spacious woodland setting is beautiful and the experience is complemented by the very welcoming host who tends the bar and makes great coffee in the morning!

Whether you are new to camping or more experienced Wytch Wood is definitely for you. Resting in the hollow of Somerset's gentle, rolling hills, with deep woodland on one side and a cafe bar on site, this place has everything. Pitches: these are spaced far apart with loads of room for children to play and explore, and allowing room for wild flowers in between. Each pitch has its own compost toilet - as close to en suite when camping as it gets. The compost loos are clean, smart and odour-free and get cleaned daily. Showers: the hot water comes quickly and remains constant. A curtain across the solid wooden door, which is supplied with solid hooks and a small shelf, ensures your stuff stays dry (I left my sandals outside). Supplies: there's no shop on site but Crewkerne is 10 mins down the road. Local supermarkets will deliver here too. On site activities: Archery and Axe Throwing: run by a confident, relaxed and very experienced guide, this session was one of the highlights of a great week. Both activities work for families. I loved the fact that the session was not time-limited and we could do as much or as little as we wanted. Tiffins in the Woods: a local chef brings them in ready-prepared (you need to order in advance). The food was great quality and very satisfying. I have been to India and this was much more like the genuine cuisine than your average takeaway. Big Bonfire: the big fire bowl is something to see. Surrounded by benches cut from tree trunks it's the perfect place to meet your fellow campers and members of the family, and to sing songs into the night. Bar: selling a selection of local beers and ciders (no spirits) there is plenty of space to chill out and blankets available as the sun sets. There's a book swap and it is a covered area so you can settle down in comfort whatever the weather. Coffee bar: new this year is a coffee bar open from 8am, a must for those of us who need a little boost first thing. Great value too. Wytch Wood Camping worked brilliantly for us. It is lovingly kept by Elise, an energetic and friendly inspiration, who makes time for her guests and clearly loves what she does. I love this site for its unique combination of wilderness-edge and thoughtful care (check out the young trees planted in strategic locations), and the way other local businesses have partnered with them to make a well-rounded holiday experience.

Beautiful campsite, with some lovely special touches. Great to be so tucked into the woods, with such a beautiful view. Elise is very friendly and helpful. Very family friendly, and easy to navigate the site.

We had a wonderful stay at Wytch Wood. The owner, Elise, is welcoming, enthusiastic, and great host. Having pizza made on site was an added bonus!
