Reviewer: Blunmurr 12 reviews from this member

A little bemused by previous reviewers comments. This is clearly an adult only site where people go to relax and chill out. For those who want to get away from the possibility of noisy families with uncontrolled kids, then this is ideal. All pitches have hard standing and large grass areas between pitches. The owners have worked hard to build up the site from its original CL status some years ago. All staff work hard to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. We were upgraded to a super pitch with water and drainage at no extra cost. Toilet/ shower facilities were spotless and always nice and warm. There was a resource room with a good collection of books and information pamphlets.

For some strange reason a few pitches found it difficult to get the satellite dish working although the cheap status aerial on the roof worked a treat.

Some nice touches like the daily homemade cakes made available for purchase from the shop.

Some walks and cycle paths clearly marked from the site. Glastonbury is a one and a half mile walk and the town of Street with its designer outlet shopping area is great to visit with lots of bargains. Wells is a must with its lovely Cathedral.

Overall probably the best site I've visited in the uk in 50 years of camping and caravanning.

We visited this site for the carnival in November this I must say is one of the best sites we have stayed at. The toilets and showers were heated and spotless. The pitches were extra large hard standing and small hedges around. The site is well kept. The staff make you very welcome. They have a small shop on site. The taxi service from the site was very reasonable. Also a good place for shopping is Clarke's village, you will find all the major retail outlet shops there. The view from the site is breath taking and the only thing that wakes you in the morning is the cows. Will be back in the new year.

Without doubt the facilities are good and clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly too.

Impeccably manicured grounds but I found the place a little bit spooky. I suppose it was the absence of children (we didn't know it was an adults only site)

Our kids are grown up now, but for me, camping is a fun family affair and it's nice to see youngsters around. We visited other sites and kids have never disturbed us.

We walked in to Glastonbury via the Tor and got some shopping so we got a taxi back. Via Bath! So watch out for rogue taxis

Owner's comments: Many thanks for your comments, all feedback is very welcome. However, I would like to defend the taxi drivers of Glastonbury by suggesting that perhaps you may be mistaken with regard to being taken back from town via Bath. Bath is approximately 30 miles away (as opposed to 3 miles from Glastonbury to us) and so a 60 mile round trip would have taken around an hour and a half at best, at a cost of around 100.

We were only here for one night but will definitely be back next year. We have stayed at countless sites over the years and this is easily the best yet. Beautifully laid out with large pitches, the site is immaculately kept. Hedges divide the several sections of the site and in the case of the Orchard (the grassed tent area) apple trees mark out the pitches. October was a good time to visit as the windfalls were delicious.

The toilet/shower bock was warm and clean and laundry facilities even included an iron and ironing board. There is a freezer for ice blocks and a microwave. Wi-fi is available although we didn't use it.

The shop was well stocked for a camp shop and the staff were welcoming and helpful.

There are plenty of walks for dogs and lots to do in the area. Unfortunately, My brother and sister-outlaw joined us in their new motorhome for their first camping trip. They will be disappointed hereafter as they will think all sites are like this!

Having read the glowing reviews of Old Oaks we decided to spend a week there and we certainly were not disappointed.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and at this time of the year have time for the odd informative chat. The facilities are very well kept and spotlessly clean at all times.The site has five star rating, but if six stars were available then they should certainly deserve them.

An added attraction is the availability of delicious home made cakes for sale, a different flavour every day(indicated on blackboards about the site).

The individual pitches are mostly very large and have magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.

It is only a short drive in to Glastonbury and the famous Glastonbury Tor is just a short walk away.

Our original plan had been to move on to Dorset for a second week but we decided that nowhere could be better than Old Oaks,so we stayed on there instead.It is magnificent!

A very well kept site.

We stayed at 6 sites on our tour in September and this was by far the best.

The showers and toilets were very good, heated and always clean.

If I'd have seen them going around the hedges and grass with a pair of scissors I wouldn't have been surprised. They were perfect.

They were very friendly and helpful in the reception.

Internet facilities all over the site, but these could be cheaper.

If I return to the area I wouldn't even look at any alternative site.

All in all a site to recommend.

Reviewer: Jojomad 3 reviews from this member

I left a review following my visit to this superb site last September and just wanted to update it following my first experience of camping on hardstanding.

I know a couple of people were concerned and felt that this was no longer a site for tents, but after this holiday, I honestly don't think I'll be camping on grass again! I brought a couple of good groundsheets with me and have a self inflating matress.

It's at least as comfortable as being on grass and in some respects, more so (it's not as cold/damp and it's much, much cleaner) - plus there are the electric hook ups, so I have an fan heater rather than a gas one and feel much safer.

Maybe you think I've sold out, but I don't think so.I still love camping in my Vango 350 and won't be getting a caravan any time soon, but what's wrong with a bit of comfort?! The site, as ever, is wonderful - peaceful, exceptionally clean and Tara's cake are a lovely bonus. Can't recommend it enough.

Reviewer: Sharonb623 2 reviews from this member

We visited this site for a week in the middle of August. We think this is one of the best sites we have been to! We were pitched on Lower Oaks field which is all semi hard standing. The size of the pitches is fab. We had never pitched our tent on hard standing before and were a bit nervous but we loved it.

The park is in a great location with easy walking access to the Tor,Glastonbury town and surrounding areas. The wardens were very friendly. The facilities were all fabulously clean. They have a small shop that sells essentials plus lovely burgers from the farm and other local produce.

It's such a joy to find a site where they don't cram as many pitches in as they can, we were amazed at the space. We would highly recommend this site, especially as the prices are very reasonable and we will definitely be returning.

We visit this site once or twice a year, and have been doing so for many years. We have seen all the improvements carried out over the years.

The site and the facilities are all first class.

The staff are polite and friendly. As a fisherman I enjoy the piece and quiet down at the lake, and never fail to catch summer or winter. Like most camping sites, fees have increased, but we always see how it is invested back into the site. The shop stocks all basic needs, and newspapers. Plenty of pubs and restaurants in the area, and you must visit knights fish and chip shop in Glastonbury, eat in or take away. The walk to the Tor is a must from the site, we do it on most visits. It is a little steep but worth. The site is quiet and relaxing, which is why we go.

This is an absolute Mary Poppins of a site, practically perfect in every way! I agree with all the positive comments I have read on other reviews. The good experience started with the telephone call to make the booking and continued throughout our 2 week stay.

There are so many positives to say about this site that it's difficult to know where to start. The team who run the site, including the owners and their team of Wardens are exceptional. They obviously take a big pride in their site and it shows.

There are so many special touches. We were escorted to our pitch which took away that little bit of anxiety often felt on arrival at a new site.The feeling of space is amazing. The pitches are huge and beautifully laid out.

Special touches include full recycling facilities (so often missing on other sites) and hand gel dispensers by the Elsan points and by the dog waste bins !

Internet is available on a computer in reception and there is WiFi coverage across the site if you want. The shop had a surprisingly good selection of food including a good veggie choice. We sampled the home made cakes nearly every day.

That's just a snapshot. This site really does tick all the boxes.
