Probably one of the best sites in the UK - depending on what you want from a camp site.
If you want noise, rides, swimming pools, hundreds of people - go somewhere else. You'll hate it here. But if you want peace and quiet, cleanliness second to none, fabulous pitches (certainly the largest we've used) and breathtaking views - look no further. You've found it.
Beautiful countryside, within walking distance of historic Glastonbury and its mysterious Tor, and a short drive from Wells and the fantastic Cheddar Gorge. This has got to go onto your 'must do' list. We'll be back - soon!

What a GEM, I can only echo the other reviews on this site. I whole heartedly recommend this site, facilities are spotless, best we’ve encountered. Well stocked licensed site shop with discounted tickets for all local attractions and really friendly owners. We will definitely be returning. If you enjoy peace and quiet in a superb location this is the site for you.

A quiet, relaxing site with friendly owners. Adequate lighting at night, some of the best toilet facilities on any site we have stayed at. Well away from the main road but easy to access and within striking distance of the North Somerset Coast. We will be returning.

August 2003
This was our first time camping, and we chose the site because it was within a few hours drive from our house, in addition to it being Adult Only, and it accepted dogs.

We cannot compare with other sites, but we found our visit to be immensely enjoyable, for two main reasons:
(1) The specified and fenced off Dog Exercise Area was perfect for our greyhound. Due to his breed, we can't let him run around at home, and so he loved this strip of field where he spent a lot of the break and was able to stretch his legs, reminiscing about his days at the racetrack. We suspected that the area might have been littered with doggy mess, but it wasn't, which perhaps is a testament to the sort of people who use this site. There is a Doggy Wash Room in a shed at the top of the Exercise Area, with a standpipe and a shower, which would be ideal for muddier times.
(2) The site was very peaceful and quiet, even though we visited in the middle of August, and at a weekend. We didn't think the site was full, but there were enough people around to be sociable with (aren't campers friendly!!?), and the site was displaying signs that it was full - so maybe this site doesn't try to cram too many people in. The pitches are marked, but we had plenty of space on ours for our car, tent and table and chairs - and were under an apple tree which made for tasty snacks (the apples were probably better in the form of cider - which we bought in the site shop for £2.20 and was very pleasant.) The ruling is that noise should be kept to a minimum between 9pm and 8am, which we felt was fine. An interesting addition to the "noise rule" was that drum playing was not acceptable at any time - so don't take your bongos. We left ours at home!! Noises at night mainly came from a local owl, and some strange noises which we think came from cows, but the site is on a working farm, so this was to be expected, and added to the pastoral atmosphere.

The views were lovely, of surrounding countryside.

The toilets and showers were very clean, although in the main ladies block there were only 3 showers, but there never seemed to be a queue. The water was always hot, and there were 2 basin cubicles as well, which I liked. There are two additional showers in a unisex area, and a bathroom, which is payable by token. Having never camped before, I was worried about toilet facilities, but they are set in the centre of the three areas, so you were never far away, and they were of an excellent quality - in fact, I've had worse in some hotels I've stayed in.

The site itself was mainly level pitches, and there was no problem with pegging as the ground was soft, and there were some super pitches for caravans with hardstanding, electrics and water, etc etc.

So the site doesn't have all the bells and whistles of heated pools, play areas, bars and restaurants - but that's not what we wanted. We had somewhere nice to put our tent, we had clean and warm toilets and showers, and a well stocked shop - so what more did we need? Had we wanted a lively weekend, we would have gone to Butlins - but we feel that we were better off with the relaxing and peaceful break that we had.

The cost of camping is a little misleading on the camp website, we thought it was £3.50 per person per night - so were expecting a bill of £14 - but it's actually £3.50 pppn, plus £4.50 per night for the pitch. It's £0.75 per night for the dog - which we didn't mind paying given the facilities for him. All in all, it was £24.50 for two people, one tent and a dog for two nights. Having never been camping before, we can't compare this, and don't know if it's good value or not - but we did compare it to £25 pppn in a B&B down the road, so didn't feel that we were ripped off, and anyway, the relaxation was well worth it!!

Glastonbury itself is an interesting little town, made up of "New Age" shops selling healing and crystals in the main. The number of "hippies", young and old, around the town seemed a little disconcerting at first, but once we had been there a little while, added to the charm. There was a sense of freedom and individuality about, and it was nice to have a town without the usual high street names which are the same wherever you go - though we did spot a Woolworths. Lots of the shops had dog water bowls outside, and some permitted dogs inside, so this was the perfect place for our Boy.

To sum up, a great campsite, a great weekend, would we go back again - YES! Would we camp again - we're currently researching where to go next weekend right now!!!

Fantastic, Adult only very dog friendly. Huge hard-standing area with additional grass area, hedged off for extra privacy. Showers were only beaten by Southlands on the Isle of Wight but they take some beating! Not much to do in the area, ideal for a good relaxing break.

This site is first class it was adult only when we went last year. The facilites are first class as so are the pitches. We were in walnut paddock the pitch was huge on hard starding, then you had a huge grass pitch aside of that and behind the van as well

They have a good fishing pool they have put in new landing stages. We will be going back even though we did not like glastonbury tself. The clarks village is good and Wells is nice

ps if you have a dog they have even got their own wash place at top of the dog walk with a hut with a shower to wash them down
