The Lorax Patch is a small farm & campsite in Somerset, a mile or so south of the tiny City of Wells, and 5 miles from Glastonbury. ​ We are a working (albeit small) farm, rearing livestock and growing fruit & vegetables. Please come and stay with us, we offer a rustic camping experience (no showers!) but what we lack in facilities, we make up for with space and freedom.

I’d just like to say a massive thank you for a wonderful 2 nights away. My two children, my partner and I stayed in the 18ft yurt and it was magical. Super huge and comfy bed and kids loved their futons. we lit the log burner in the evenings which made it really warm and cosy. It really is such a peaceful and beautiful setting. I would recommend to anyone who wants to escape.

We had a great hassle-free two night stay in the 24ft yurt. Huge space for us to lay out air beds and also keep bikes inside. Also included a log burner with logs, outdoor picnic bench and fire pit. Great for a few friends to chill with a BBQ. Campsite was immaculate and well groomed. Only a couple of others there on the weekend we stayed with plenty of space between us all. Facilities are limited, but this is part of the charm really. The owners were super friendly and helpful too!

We spent three nights at the Lorax over a beautiful May bank holiday weekend and I have to say it was utterly perfect! The location was great for exploring the local area, we were able to walk with our two boys (3 & 6) into Wells for the day which was wonderful. The site itself is a little tranquil haven, clearly very much loved and beautifully landscaped. Our children loved the rope swing and paddling in the river and thoroughly enjoyed feeding the chickens with Gabe! The hosts, Char and Gabe were attentive and helpful and made us all feel so welcome! If you are after a little escapism in a beautiful spot then the Lorax is perfect, we would highly recommend it! We will definitely be back, thank you so much guys! Xx

Last summer I was totally fed up with Covid, and the restrictions and stress of it all. So hence I felt that needed to get away for a couple of nights. A friend recommended The Lorax Patch and I am so glad they did. The Lorax Patch is located about a mile south from the centre of Wells, where there are both Lidl and Waitrose food stores, as well as the famous Bishops Palace, with its fantastic gardens, Cathedral and lots of coffee shops. However the site itself feels to be in the middle of nowhere. Perfect isolation. A lovely flat field surrounded by trees and a few hills. On arrival Gabe (the co-owner) was utterly charming, and really keen to ensure that I made the most of my stay with them. My “pitch” came complete with a picnic bench, and a fire pit and was ideal. And again nicely secluded from the rest of the site. Then, after a late night star gazing session sat beside my fire pit, I went to sleep to the sound of an owl, and woke up in the morning to the gentle sound of a rooster and the sheep in the distance. A perfect rural retreat. Add in to that all that Gabe and Char have done to make the place a fully working eco-friendly small holding, complete with animals which the kids can see, and lots of space to run around in beside each pitch, and you have the recipe for a perfect ‘back to nature’ retreat and break. Absolutely superb and therefore very highly recommended. Personally I can’t wait until Covid restrictions are lifted once again in a few weeks, and I can get back there for another stay.
