I have just returned from a weekend at this site and totally agree with all the good reviews written on here, especially the proximity to the town. However, due to a festival being held in Glastonbury on Saturday evening the site was packed to overflowing and I'm sure it was a fire hazard as units were so close to each other. Also, I think £20 per night is a bit expensive for two people on a non electric pitch.
Me and my 10 year old son spent a weekend here and loved it. We pitched up in the main field without electric. There was plenty of space.
Shower/toilet/washing up block was spacious and well kept/clean. Showers free and hot with plenty of room inside.
Very picturesque on entrance with flowers in full bloom. Easy to find too and well signposted which is always a bonus.
A 10 minute walk into the town, plenty of little shops to get lost in and places to sit and people watch.
We drove out past Cheddar during the weekend to do some cycling on the Strawberry line from Cheddar reservoir to Yatton. Unfortunately my son fell off his bike so our cycling was cut short but will definitely return to do the whole trail. Some of it is on road so more suitable for older kids.
We also visited the Thatchers cider shop in Sandford though there were lots of cider outlets around for topping up supplies.
We never made it up the tor as the Saturday was so hot and the Sunday sky was black clouds - how I love the British weather! However it gives us another excuse to return to this great campsite.
Although there was no playground on site my son was more than happy riding around on his bike with the other children on the site.
Myself, my Husband and our dog were travelling the West Country and thought Glastonbury would be a good place to explore from. We found this site online and are so pleased we did. This site is in a very good location for wandering into town, which is a very interesting place, the shops are as you would imagine, with crystals, dream catchers, beads, spiritual books etc everywhere, it is such an interesting place. If your an old (or young) hippy, you will love this place.
The Camp Site itself has all you should need for a comfortable stay, the laundry room, showers and toilets are very well kept and spacious.
There is an on site shop with basic stuff which is handy.
We drove to Cheddar Gorge, it took 20 minutes to drive there and is well worth a visit, if you have a dog its so dog friendly, with water bowls outside most shops. Our dog came into a cave with us and on a open top tour bus ride.
The camp site here is one we have been visiting for many years, it does just get better and better that's what makes us come back.
The site is entered by a secure barrier system which they will raise for you from the office, although you can hire a tag to get in and out (you get full money back when you hand it in at the end of your stay) The shop is always well stocked in the summer season and they even do a take away for food, burgers etc.
The local shop is 5 mins walk towards the village, 15 mins walk the other way is the new Tesco so even quicker in the car.
The new boiler is great, always giving instant very hot water to the very clean spacious showers as well as in the laundry / washing up room.
The site is family owned and over the years of visiting have found them very helpful (especially with one of us having a medical emergency needing an ambulance this last trip)
Yes out of season the site does have general tidying up done, re tiling, painting etc but this means it's not being done when there are too many around and it didn't bother us in the slightest.
Although children are welcomed on the site there is no playground, In summer most older children congregate around the trees at the bottom of the camping field (so not a great spot to pitch if you are child free) but they could be a bit bored if there were no others to play with.
The newest thing we noticed has been the new wooden fencing erected around the caravan storage compound adding extra security at the same time as hiding them away.
We store our caravan here, and the site offers a reasonably charged caravan washing facility saving us the bother and wasting our hard earned leisure time having to do it ourselves.
They do not charge for towing in and out of the compound as many other storage sites do.
You only have to ring before hand to have your caravan on a pitch ready to hook up for electricity and water or ready to tow away.
Yes it can be very quiet here in winter but for us that is the attraction as well as the fact the town has attractions all year round Carnival, Abbey extravaganza, Frost Fayre etc as well as the usual Tor and Wearyall hill to climb and wonderful shops to visit.
Love visiting well worth the three and a half hour journey for a weekend of 'chilling out' time.
It really is a site where you meet all walks of life and great to sit and people watch.
Just returned from a weekend at the Isle of Avalon campsite in Glastonbury. It is a really well run site in a lovely setting. The owners were friendly and helpful, even printing us out a map to show us how to get to the Tor. Lots of lovely shops to browse with an easy going atmosphere, and the local pubs were nice too. We tried the 'Who'd a thought it?' and the King William. Good food and music in the Blue note Café as well! The town is easy to walk into from the campsite, and facilities were excellent. Good sized, hot showers which were free and plenty of regularly cleaned toilets. Nice little shop on site for any forgotten 'camping' essentials. Pitches were well spaced and we had no problems with the electric hook up. Would definitely return to this site!
Having arrived back from, the Isle of Avalon Touring site, I must write a review. My family and I had a great time. The owner of the site could not be more helpful. The shower block. Is very clean, and plenty of room to shower. Good stocked shop, if you want fresh eggs the farmer just up the road will sell you some. Close to the pubs, most are dog friendly. The town is walking distance, lovely shops. The tor is walking distance. A bit hard going to climb up the steep hill, but well worth the effort. We will be going again.
