Luxury Award Winning Adult Only Dog Friendly Glamping in Cheddar, Somerset

Located on The West Mendip Way overlooking Cheddar Village and Cheddar reservoir, we are tucked away in an area of outstanding natural beauty surrounded by spectacular views, amazing sunsets and dark skies for stargazing.

Footpaths from Owley lead to pretty Cheddar Village with its many tea rooms, pubs and restaurants  and Cheddar Gorge. It is the perfect location for you if you enjoy an active break or just need to chill.

We are a small quiet site with  just five Lotus Belle Tents, which are all fully equipped with indoor and outdoor equipment. ‘The Owlet’ is our bathroom block with flushing toilets and showers and The ‘Cheats’ Kitchen has those essentials like kettle, toaster and mains electric!

Prices start at just £100 per night in low season including your first basket of logs etc and complimentary tea and coffee. We are open from March – October –  with a two night minimum stay (but you will wish you had booked more!)

Lotus belle tents

After staying with us for one night you will realise why all of our tents are named after owls and I am sure you will love listening to the evening chorus of owl calls as you sit around the campfire. Choose from The Tawny, The Bubo, The Screech, The Pygmy and The Boreal Belles. We have bathroom facilities with hot showers and flushing toilets called  ‘The Owlet’. We also have a ‘Cheats Kitchen’ with an electric kettle and toaster for those of you who need your coffee/tea before you light the stove in the morning.

Lotus Belle Tents let you experience being back to nature but without sacrificing your creature comforts. These amazing 5 meter tents have 18 square meters of standing space with 1.8 meters of headroom all the way to the edge, so yes, you can get dressed standing up! All the comforts of home but in a stunning location.

Fitted with king size beds, cosy bedding, throws and cushions, table and chairs, bunting and of course sparkly fairy lights, and with a private outside seating area with firepit/BBQ and woodburning stove. A real home from home with a colourful theme for your glamping staycation in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset

Location:

Cheddar,
Somerset

Cheddar is obviously famous for its cheese, (check out Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company who make the only Cheddar still made in Cheddar), the sweetest strawberries, stunning walks and for the highest gorge in the country which is quite spectacular. The village and surrounding area are great for those seeking activity or for those looking for a more relaxed getaway, with climbing, caving, hiking or sightseeing and enjoying a cream tea just a few of the things to do in the immediate area.

Cheddar Village is just 15mins footpath walk from us (or 5 min drive) with its vast array of pubs, cafes, restaurants, takeaways, supermarkets and lots of quirky shops. With Wells, Glastonbury, Weston Super Mare, Burnham, Brean and Street all within 30 minutes’ drive, there are no shortage of places to visit if you can bear to drag yourself away!

About us

Sunsets, Scenery, Stargazing & Cider!

We have lived in Owley for 4 years and we know how lucky we are to live in such a spectacular location but still be close to amazing pubs and restaurants. Friends and family  constantly told us that Owley is the perfect location for a staycation, so  after  trialing a pop-up campsite in 2020 we finally opened Owley Woods Glampsite in 2021 and our guests loved it!  We were only open for 3 months in 2021 but we have already had guests return for a second stay. Reviews have been amazing and we can’t wait until we can have a full season this year. Set in 12 acres of land and surrounded by wildlife and great views we are sure you will grow to love Owley as much as we do.
