Reviewer: Microjo 2 reviews from this member

We are quite new to camping, and this is the first trip of the year, and what a treat this site was. Beautifully set out excellent pitches. The toilet and shower block was impeccable, and a pleasure to use. The staff were lovely, very helpful and welcoming, I can't fault this place at all, for us novice campers it was a great way to start our year. For peace quiet and tranquillity with superb facilities, and No Children. Bliss. We will be back!

We received an efficient and friendly welcome from the reception staff and shown personally to our pitch. All the toilet / washing facilities were very clean which makes everyone using them want to keep them that way. The shrubs and flowers around the site are beautifully kept and the views from the top of Walnut Terrace are spectacular in sunny weather!

The walk to Glastonbury along the lanes the fields were too muddy proved a stern test of stamina. As mentioned in earlier reviews, signs to the town petered out and we had to ask other walkers which way to go. Whilst there we had our Sunday lunch at the Abbey Tea Rooms. Two courses + drinks around 25.

No problems finding the Tor with great views from the top.

We only use sites where we can walk or take public transport into the nearby town or city. We shall be back here again.

Just returned home from a fantastic 10 days at the Old Oaks. Warm and friendly reception, very helpful. The site is the best we have stayed on, with the pitches being very large which is unusual these days. Again, the personal hygiene facility was second to none, incredibly clean. I can't really comment on the washing up facilities as that is my husbands department, but there didn't seem to be any complaints.

Nicely laid out and maintained.

The area is ideal to use as a base for exploring the local surroundings. My only criticism is when walking to the Tor the signs dried up leaving you wondering which way to go.

Although the internet was offered it was available in the office only. A WIFI facility would be useful even if a charge was made for the privileged.

Looking forward to returning to the site later in the year. Can I have the same pitch please.

Reviewer: Kernow Camper 163 reviews from this member

Heaven on Earth! The best run site we've ever stayed on. Everyone was so friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Pitches are all large, all bordered by hedges and all in sections so it feels like a small site even though they have 100 pitches.
The recycling facilities and waste facilities are second to none. The toilet/shower block is the cleanest we've ever used. Under-cover washing up area is great too. There is also a small laundry. The shop is well stocked with loads of local produce (not overpriced either!). I can highly recommend the local cider (Hecks from Street) - I'm sure they do a roaring trade in it! You can pre-order morning papers for collection from reception the next day.
The dog facilities are the best we've ever come across too! They have a dog walk, a dog exercise area where they can be let off the lead and a doggie shower - tried and tested by our boy, Paddy, much to his disgust!
The walk to Glastonbury Tor from the site is steep and is 3/4 of a mile but is well worth it for the views alone. The walk into Glastonbury itself it 1.5 miles, again it's steep but worth the walk. I would give this wonderful site 9.9 out of 10, the only thing it lacks is a pub within a reasonable walking distance for a sunny evening pint!
This is our 2nd visit and it certainly won't be our last. Thanks to all at Old Oaks!

Well here I am, back after a lovely restful week at the Old Oaks.

We pitched at an all-serviced pitch on the circle. The plots are very roomy and every caravan had it's privacy, which is nice but sometimes it's nice to sit and talk to the neighbours!

Even though there was a lot of rain around we were lucky only to get caught once - half way walking up the Tor! There is a footpath leading from the site up to the Tower. The total walk from the site took around 90 minutes. Very enjoyable. On a nice sunny day the views would be fantastic, sunrise / sunset times would be beautiful.

It's lovely to be on a site that's situated away from main roads, very peaceful. The lane approaching the site is OK - according to one of the chaps on site, there's only two places where two caravans can't pass each other. If you have concerns about meeting oncoming caravans, avoid getting there early as all caravans should leave the site by 12 noon.

All the staff are very friendly and helpful - know a lot about the local areas. The shop is well stocked, as well as freshly made bread there's a lovely home-made Victoria sandwich cake every day which is sold by the slice.

My husband's a keen fisherman and was really pleased with his efforts at the pool - it's well stocked with carp, tench, perch and roach.

We ate out a few times - The Lion (turn left onto the main road, drive around 3 miles) was excellent - 10/10, couldn't fault it at all. Also another place for recommendation is the Geroge and Pilgrim in Glastonbury itself. Another excellent meal and good atmosphere in a very old building - it has quite a history.

It's well worth a trip to Wells on a Wednesday for their market, it's really good. Surprisingly Glastonbury market (Monday) isn't up to much.

Frome is a lovely town also.

Hopefully we'll go back for a weekend in October, otherwise definitely next spring - can't wait!

Just returned from August bank holiday at the Old Oaks. We have been to this site many times and it just keeps getting better. As always the shower and toilet block absolutely spotless. Pitches and site area immaculate and even after a wet August the people in tents didn't seem to have much of a problem.
The site was full but at Old Oaks they never seem to pack them in and everyone has plenty of space to relax. What we really love about this place is that everyone staying here seems to chill out and just enjoys nature and peace and quiet - you never hear noisy tv's or radios so if you are after somewhere really to recharge your batteries away from children this really is the place to come. We devoured the freshly baked loaf from the shop in one day and enjoyed walking around the site chatting to the onsite chickens!
Good places to visit with the dog - Stockhill Woods the other side of Wells (off the A39) East Harptree Woods (also north of Wells) and the Willow Walk following the canal near glastonbury. Old Oaks is convenient for everything really - Wells, Street, Mendip Hills and not too far from the M5. Cant wait to go back.

Reviewer: Farley 11 reviews from this member

This is the first time weve used an adults only camp site. We were very impressed. Lovely peaceful site with pitches that are level and bordered by trees and shrubs. The gates of the camp are closed during the night so there are not any cars travelling around the park after 11 pm. The staff are friendly and helpful.
The toilet block very clean but could do with a few more toilets when the site is full. Disadvantage to us was that there are no places to visit in the evening within walking distance. Glastonbury is quite a walk away over fields (not to be contemplated when returning after drinks in the dark) . Overall though an excellent site which we will revisit.

Reviewer: Rob Johns 12 reviews from this member

I have to concur with many of the previous reviews about this site. There are many areas that deserve the highest praise here. The staff are fantastic, toilets and showers too are top line as are the campsite shop and the pitches themselves. This is most certainly the best kept site that I have seen. The proximity to the town of Glastonbury and its attractions (as well as the close towns of Street and Wells) make it an ideal base for tourism. I also have to praise all the fellow campers at Old Oaks who added to the great atmosphere.

Facilities for dogs are also superb with its great dog run and associated doggie shower, something rarely seen in most sites (considering that you pay a charge for dogs).

Whilst at the site, I was pondering over how I could offer any constructive criticism. The one point that I was going to make (and one that has been mentioned before), and that is, that the distance from both Top and Lower Oaks fields (or paddocks as they called them) to the one toilet and shower block is just a bit too far. Well, it appears that this is going to be addressed and that a new block is planned for construction in the winter of 2009 / 2010. Also the number of water tap facilities that at present are fairly sparse are now being increased, progress is being made in this area presently.

Would I visit this site again? A team of wild dogs cannot stop me going back to this wonderfull beutiful campsite!

Fantastic Site very quiet in the country but still near to Glastonbury. A nice pub just up the main road that serves good food

Lots of space between pitches, wonderful shower block, friendly staff and well stocked shop, wonderful area to visit. This site has it all. We will be back

Reviewer: 100acrewood 20 reviews from this member

Well what can we say that hasnt already been said? Our fourth trip here and the site just gets better and better - if thats possible! More hardstanding which is understandable after the floods they encountered last yr which we were in resident at the time, more pitches outlined where as before the top half of lower oaks and the field behind werent. Another freezer added for freezing your ice blocks and fresh cakes available in the shop which were baked by the owners' daughter in law (very good they were too Tara thank you).

What a truly fantastic site in a great location with wonderful owners and fantastic and friendly wardens. Its become apparent that Jim and Sally are taking more of a back seat in the knowledge that their very capable son will be eventually taking over and by the few changes that have already been made - added signs we noticed to the very UN RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERS to name but one, we can see that they'll do as good a job as the present owners.

Booked already for 2009 and cant wait - the dogs loved it too and know where they're going when taking them for a walk! Think they would take themselves and return once they'd done given the chance. We went to Brean Sands whilst there and still 2 for the whole day although it was a bit breeky. TOP TIP Dont park in the Abbey car park, park behind the high street in Glastonbury - if you go right at the roundabout after the tor the car parking is signposted, bigger car park, cheaper and great loos!

A definite must for people wishing for peace and quiet and plenty of time to sit and watch the world go by!
