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 are so happy we discovered The Lorax Patch. A beautiful place to relax and have some time out. Highly recommend a visit here. Char and Gabes lovely produce is delicious.The lamb burgers and Salad were so tasty. We hope to visit again soon.
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.…
I wanted to spend weekend away with my Son and I had scoured all of the campsites around this area on the internet first. Most options seemed OK, but they didn’t have the right feeling. Then The Lorax Patch popped up. From the minute I read the website and saw the pictures I knew this place was something unique. We were not disappointed! The very moment we arrived at the gates we were put at ease by one of the wonderful owners, Gabe. He came to greet us, and having run through the simple do’s and don’t’s (which by the way, are all based on common sense, respect of people and nature, so no issues there!) he then invited my Son and I to help feed the chickens. We set up our ample designated pitch, which came complete with a picnic bench and a fire pit before soaking in the peace and tranquility around us. The site itself focuses on feeling at one with nature and ourselves as people. The layout and presentation was neat and natural in perfect balance, you can sense the love, care and commitment the couple have put into this site, it’s simply stunning. There are meadows or fields on each side, animals on site (sheep and chickens) a vegetable patch, a quaint and romantic little stream which really captivates your imagination and a rope swing, which my Son enjoyed until he literally had blisters. The pitch itself was flat, and the pegs gave little to no resistance, just perfect ground. Yet the surrounding countryside offers rolling hills and plenty of verdant lushness. The facilities were a great match for the purpose and feeling of the site, clean, tidy and considerate compost toilets and the deep sink available were more than adequate and actually really enjoyable to use. Both Gabe and Char insisted that anything we needed was only ever a call away, and this included a tidy wood basket equipped with all of the things you need for a fire and at at very reasonable price. I can’t stress or thank them enough for the comfortable and relaxed feeling they ensured from the very first minute to the last. Unbelievably attentive. The Lorax Patch was the ultimate place for quality time and tranquility. I was able to be at peace in nature, build a cosy fire, toast marshmallows, look up at the stars and spend quality time with my Son. This place is camping. Pure and natural perfection. My Son and I will be back again and again.…
We had a lovely time staying at this small and peaceful campsite. Pitches are well spaced out and large and I loved the addition of picnic benches and a fire pit! Toilets/sinks were also super clean and very eco friendly. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Plus, the centre Wells is just a short walk from the campsite. Would definitely stay here again!
We had a lush three night stay at the Lorax patch whilst visiting family nearby. The site is beautiful and we loved swinging on the rope swings and paddling in the river. We all enjoyed feeding the sheep and our youngest enjoyed helping Gabe with the chickens. We will definitely be back. It felt very safe, clean and well set up for COVID.
We had a wonderfully, peaceful overnight stay at the Lorax Patch, Gabe and Char are really friendly and accommodating! Beautiful and well set up for covid with separate units per campsite and lots of space!
Small yet beautiful site set amongst the wildlife and within walking distance of Wells. Safe and well spaced out pitches gave the feeling of privacy and also freedom with a rope swing and small stream nearby ideal for paddling. Excellent composting toilets and sink areas which were individually allocated to each pitch during our 2 night stay. Looking forward to returning again soon.
