This was not our first visit and as usual from our arrival to departure the helpfulness and friendliness of all personnel was top-rate. The facilities are always clean, warm and efficient. This year will see the opening of another large facility block. There is a well stocked shop on site, newspapers and fresh bread can be ordered. As an adult only site it is peaceful in a beautiful rural setting with lovely scenic views. New this year is a minibus service[by a local firm]especially useful for motor home owners. There is a walk to Glastonbury Tor and a good Dog walk. Glastonbury has many attractions and further on is Street with Clarkes outlet village.

Stayed for 5 nights in September. Staff very helpful could not do do enough from arrival to departure. Pitches well laid out plenty of room good veiws over valley. The toilet block always clean never a problem with hot water. Washing area excellent the shop was well stocked and not over priced. Dog walking and dog shower good idea fishing on site well stocked pool. Super markets shops pubs and restaurants within 10 mins at Glastonbury. Clarkes outlet village also in Glastonbury. Plenty of local walks nice walk up to the Tor worth it for views

A beautifully campsite in a lovely location. The best site we have been on in the UK.

Every pitch is very large, most are hard standings and fully serviced. All the pitches are spread out in large circles, around the sides of a field, separated by shrubs and flowers. In the middle of each field is a large green space. Dogs are not allowed on the green space, but have their own dog walk area with a dog wash cabin attached to it.

The friendly wardens of this site work shifts in pairs and their units are sited one to each field and they are always ready to chat.

Every day there are home made cakes to die for that you can buy by the slice. The portions are huge and enough for 2 people. You can order a freshly made cake or pie to take home.

Bread and milk can be ordered the night before and there is no extra charge. The small shop is well stocked, as is the freezer and fridge full of their own organic meat. Spotlessly clean site. Fantastic views, beautifully decorated clean toilets and showers. We will go back, as will the friends we have told about this friendly site

Just returned from two nights at this beautiful site. It is immaculate! The toilets and showers are clean and well cared for. The washing facilities are second to none. The whole site is well laid out and beautifully landscaped. A new shower/toilet block is being erected at the moment.

The shop is well stocked. We bought a half lamb which is also very good.

We cannot fault this site in any way. It is by far the best we have ever been to. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful.

We will definitely be returning and would definitely recommend it.

We only stayed one night while visiting the nearby motorhome show, but it was enough to be left with a great impression.

The staff and facilities all top class, the atmosphere relaxing and the staff so helpful, we will be returning.

The toilet block facilities were excellent and my wife found the disabled and family shower rooms a boon. The shop was well stocked and we enjoyed the home made 'cake of the day'.

The parking area we had was fully serviced and well cared for with plenty of space with great views. A well thought out site and efficiently run.

Have just returned home from 5 wonderful days at the Old Oaks, read all the reviews before we went and was really looking forward to seeing if it lived up to it's expectations.

It excelled them all! What a fantastic place to stay, the staff were all so friendly and helpful, the park itself was immaculate and so beautifully landscaped.

Definitely the best caravan park we have ever been to in 30 years of caravanning. We had a super pitch with glorious views over the Mendip hills, a stunning sight to wake up to every morning.

And the dog walk was just the best ever, plus numerous walks from the site too, can't praise this park highly enough and can't wait to go back!

This is the second year we have stayed at this fantastic site. Staff are always friendly and helpful. The shop is well stocked and there is always a choice of home made cakes. Newspapers and bread can be ordered at no extra charge.

The majority of pitches have lawned area in front giving a sense of space. We found the site very quiet with no noise experienced at the time of our stay.

The only downside to this magnificent site is there are not enough toilets/showers considering the size of the site. I queued most mornings at different times. We returned this year as a new facility block was planned to be built over last winter. It has been postponed to this winter.

We love this site but will not return next year unless the new facilty block has been built.

We stayed here to break our journey from Kent to Devon. We used M3/A303 but if we had wanted a quicker journey, M4/M5 would be best, as the site is relatively close to the M5. The site is immaculate, and well laid out.

Toilet block was quite busy at times, but did not have to wait. There are also 2 unisex bathrooms with shower and toilet which can be used when the main block is cleaned.

We stayed in the Top Oaks, it has a huge open lawned area, that, in my mind could do with some trees and shrubs to break up the open space.

The owners take recycling very seriously, which is a good point, but to recycle, it does mean a bit of a walk; recycling is not available at every rubbish bin area.

The entry road is about one mile in length, and does have some narrow parts to it. We often met fast moving locals using this road. On the day of departure, we found it quite difficult to turn left onto the A361, as our unit has a shipping length of over 27 feet.

Places that are worth a visit include Wells with its magnificent cathedral, plus a drive through Cheddar Gorge is worthwhile.

One drawback; we stayed here for 4 days and on each of those, there was the almost constant drone of low flying large military type helicopters and on one occasion this noise was replaced by a low flying fighter jet. I can only assume there is an RAF base nearby.

Would we return? Yes, we would.

Beautifully laid out and maintained. Great facilities and a very warm welcome.

The site is located down a b road in some very nice farmland. Good local footpaths abound. Very good shop and reception area and great facilities.

There are some tipi units owned by the site and these looked great. I guess very popular during the Glastonbury Festival. Well positioned for visiting the lovely towns in and around the area.

Only slight negative its a bit of a trek into Glastonbury on foot on a busy main road.

No wonder this is a 5 star site. Superb

Reviewer: BillEmm19 1 review from this member

We camped in tent and really enjoyed our stay. The facilities are great and we made use of the microwave (and Tesco) to prepare a good cheap evening meal. It was easy to walk to the tor or Glastonbury town and return to the quite and friendly site. During our stay I managed to leave my watch in the shower room and we forgot our ground sheet thinking it was already packed. Both items were returned (ground sheet sent on) illustrating the the quality of fellow campers and staff - highly recommended, quite and safe.
