Reviewer: Jonali 1 review from this member

We've just returned from our first weekend at Old Oaks and booked our next stay before we left, this morning! We were recommended this site by three separate couples that we had met whilst away over the last few weeks in sites across the south of England. The site certainly lived up to those recommendations and to it's reputation.

The facilities on site were impeccably clean. Lots of toilets, showers, washing-up sinks and laundry facilities so that we never had to wait for anything.

Our pitch was lovely although smaller than some of the others on site - we've chosen our pitch for our next visit to ensure maximum evening sun and space.

The staff on-site were great - really friendly and helpful. We can recommend the home-baked cakes and the bread which is delivered daily from 'Burns the Bread' in Glastonbury.

One tiny niggle, was that the taps for drinking water and waste water disposal nearest to our pitch were a bit flakey (either sprayed loads of water or resorted to a dribble) but we reported this and have been promised that it will be fixed for the next time we're there.

My husband has a serious heart condition and this was the perfect site for him - flat enough to be able to get around, easy access to the facilities and peace & quiet when he needed to rest in the afternoon.

10 out of 10 for a brilliant weekend.

We've been tenting for many years, this was our first time taking a caravan, I'm afraid this site has set a standard that may be hard to find elsewhere.

We went to the Glastonbury festival and wanted to stay far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet and we certainly found the right place.

The owners and all the staff are friendly and can't do enough for you. Really helpful with lots of useful local information and knowledge. The site itself is wonderful and I have no downsides, complaints or negative comments.

We walked to the tor down the back lanes from site and it took about 30 minutes to get to the top and a further 10-15 minutes we were in the town centre, which is beautiful with some lovely pubs, take a headtorch with you if walking back.

We will definitely be returning.

A real five star campsite!

Brilliant facilities, lots of washing up spots, showers etc. Even had a washing machine, spinner, freezer and microwave for our use! Plus a FREE internet pc in the office/shop to look up places to go or anything you like. Adults only so quiet at night once the winos (a very giggly couple after a bottle or two of red!) had gone to bed.

Walks from the site to Glastonbury Tor and town for the fit - close but steep!

Horses in the field behind our tent (the Orchard) for company. A duck from the nearby pond visited every afternoon for nibbles!

Lots of recycling facilities. Staff very friendly and loved being shown pitch by a man on a push bike - brilliant idea!

Would happily recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful welcoming place to stay.

If only all campsites were this good!

We Visited this adults only campsite in July, absolutely fantastic site cannot find any faults at all. We pitched our tent on hardstanding which we were a bit worried about, but we borrowed an extra groundsheet for a small deposit from the office, so with our own groundsheet and the borrowed one the tent was well protected and to be honest I would prefer this to grass,no mess to be carried in.

The campsite is situated in a quiet peaceful setting with very nice views.

The toilet block was kept spotless with the added bonus of 4 large private rooms to the back of the block which each housed a toilet, sink, large walk in shower and even a bath in the end one.Dogs are well catered for, dog poo bins with antibacterial gel everywhere also at the end of the dog walk a small brick building with a large sink and shower to wash the dogs down after a muddy walk.

The small shop had most essentials and homemade cakes to die for. Loads of walks to the Tor and into glastonbury itself via fields, we will most definitely be back to this 5* campsite.

What a wonderful week we had. This excellent site really does meet a 5 star accreditation. It is located in a beautiful part of the country, with spectacular views and a central location for exploring other locations nearby.

Toilets and facilities are next to none. Spotlessly clean toilets, even private showers/toilets if you prefer. Not much room to manoeuvre though once inside the toilet cubicle, but usually a problem.

A nice shop on site selling basic food and camping items with a daily selection of fresh cakes.Yum yum

Pitches are huge and spacious, we opted for electric waste and water hook-up, which was definitely worth the extra and would definitely do again. Plenty of room for parking and spreading out a bit to relax.

Lovely walks lead of from the site, and a designated dog walking area made it so easy to look after our four legged friends which were more than at home on this wonderful site. Dogs are very well catered for and dog wash areas were an excellent idea to keep these little friends clean and tidy, especially if the weather was not so good.

Overall, a little gem of a site. Nothing negative to say about it. Well run, friendly and helpful staff. Very tranquil and peaceful. Highly recommended. Stunning. Well done everyone that works there, you certainly made the week we stayed an extremely enjoyable one.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this beautiful spacious site. The staff and wardens are very friendly and helpful, and the facilities on site were always very clean and tidy.

There is a small shop on site, which stocks the main essentials, with fresh cakes available on a daily basis. The site is very quiet and peaceful and in a rural location yet is only 1 mile from the main road, which provides easy access (although the lane is narrow in a couple of places - but do not let this deter you from visiting).

Also close by is a large Morrisons supermarket and petrol station, with Sainsburys a little further afield (10 minutes by car). You can also visit the Glastonbury Tor from a walkway on site, well worth a visit.

We would not hesitate to recommend this site, and will definitely return in the future.

Reviewer: Brettsy 10 reviews from this member

Camped here 3 nights Bank Holiday weekend. Beautiful site, spacious enclosed pitches, spotlessly clean, top class showers, toilets etc and friendly staff. Site is a little remote and very quiet with no children. Also quite pricey, but you do get what you pay for, and whilst the nightly charge was higher than I am used to paying for camping, in no way did I feel this was a rip-off.

Took a day trip to Weston and passed 2 other sites where campers were packed in like sardines, probably would have got 3 tents and cars on the size of pitch that Old Oaks gave me all to myself. I was so glad I had paid the extra.

Ensure that breathable groundsheet is used if camping on grass, and rock pegs (and thick groundsheet / carpet) are needed if you have electric hookup on the all weather pitches

What a find! First time at this site, not the last!

Excellent site, beautifully laid out and maintained, wouldn't know that there were 100 pitches. Facilities were always clean. All wardens friendly and helpful. Homemade cakes were heavenly. Shop well stocked, bread and papers can be ordered.

Lovely dog walks, including dog shower! Plenty of walking around the area too.

Excellent location for access of things to do, or simply chill out with a capital CHILL !

We have just returned from a lovely weekend break at the 'Old Oaks'.

A lovely Adults Only campsite by Glastonbury Tor.

Nice large pitches, immaculate toilets, a lovely shop, and the owners and Wardens are very friendly and helpful.

Chemical disposal point is the nicest we have ever seen - black granite and chrome!

Close to Glastonbury and the Clarks shopping village.

Wells is a lovely place, but I was disappointed with Glastonbury.

The Fleet Air Arm museum is not too far away - an excellent day out.

Morrisons and Sainsburys is close by.

We would definitely return.

My husband, myself and our 18 year old son stayed for three nights at this site and wished we had booked longer! The whole site is spotlessly clean and the wardens are very friendly and helpful.

The site is in beautiful countryside and is a haven for birds. How magical to be awoken in the morning by birdsong - I lay listening to woodpeckers too on most mornings.

You can walk from the site to Glastonbury tor and also into Glastonbury town both routes take you along quiet farm tracks or across fields and are not to be missed.

The site also hires out bicycles at very reasonable prices. We did this on one of our days there and followed a cycle route along peaceful country lanes into Wells.

The reception has a list of good places to eat along with menus for most of them.

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, peaceful and relaxing site this is it!
