About Be Wilder Camp
Our aim is rewilding.
Rewilding the soul while we regenerate the countryside, spending time in nature, relax, unwind and connect with each other and the countryside at a deeper level.
On most days of the week we aim to offer activities between 10am and 4pm, though there are exceptions to this dependent on availability and levels of bookings. These sessions are bookable on this page below at a fixed cost for the 6hrs. You can drop in and out of sessions as required and most are suitable for kids and adults. There will also be additional standalone activities that can be attended by all campers such as storytelling sessions, fireside song circles, movement workshops in the morning, etc. These are all included in your stay.

Our new home nestled in the Mendip hills is part of a rare breeds farm who are focused on conserving and protecting the UK’s native rare breeds as well as promoting biodiversity and managing the land in a way that protects our natural wildlife.
You’ll spend your stay camping under canvas in a beautiful wildflower meadow surrounded by natural woodland and rolling green hills.
We have lots of pre-pitched options available ranging from fairly luxurious safari bells tents complete with real beds to traditional tipis with basic furnishings and pre-pitched bell tents that are unfurnished and ready for you to make your own.
And if you happen to be seasoned campers and have your own tent we have a limited number of camping only spaces for you to pitch up and get involved with the activities.
