Very secluded, peaceful and lots of atmospheric Christmas lights up with a lovely wee Grotto. Pristine toilets and showers, extremely helpful and sociable staff, useful wee on-site shop, gas stock, and a place we just keep returning to. Really lovely manageress let us in at 9. 45pm! Plenty of hook-ups though we didn't need it this time.
Only 10 minutes walk to Glastonbury town centre, along a semi-rural grass verge. Can see the land features in the morning and plan your ascent of The Tor, via a drink at Chalice Springs, then mooch back via the shops and perhaps a small beverage.
Great site, very clean and well maintained, fantastic facilities, the toilet block was superb, great refreshing showers, good shop, well stocked with all your needs, and a friendly farmer round the corner for fresh eggs, friendly staff and only 10 mins walk from the town centre, the only downside is that I couldn't stay longer. The site was well spaced out and was quiet, an ideal place to relax and unwind, definitely recommended.
Isle of Avalon Campsite - large commercial campsite with full facilities and a shop. But for many people the main attraction is that it is within 10 minutes walking distance of the centre of Glastonbury.
The pitches are a bit regimented in rows but with many mature trees which gives it a woodland feeling. All have EHU (ours rated only 6A) and hard standing albeit caravan, not motorhome-shaped; but joy of joys, there is a motorhome service point!
Out of season the site is rather sad - just stored caravans - all gradually being tinted green with moss. The shop is closed and maintenance staff are painting the outdoor furniture. But out of season it is pleasantly quiet and there is no waiting for the facilities which are good but didn't quite work - dark, unheated cubicles, loose toilet seats, toilets which flush poorly, showers which don't work, etc. Perhaps they will be worked on before the season starts.
I visited this site at the end of February and unsurprisingly I was the only occupant for the 2 nights that I stayed. The shop and snack bar mentioned in other reviews weren't open but given the time of year I wasn't surprised and it didn't affect me at all. The manageress was really helpful and I got the impression that nothing would be too much trouble although thankfully I didn't need to test that.
The site is well laid out although I did find the pitches just a little small for even a medium sized motorhome. There are plenty of fresh water/waste water facilities and a Chemical Disposal Point. The showers were hot, (eventually, but remember I was the only one using them) but not unexpectedly there was no heating in the toilet or shower blocks so I didn't linger.
The town is an easy 10 min walk and the bottom of the Tor about a 25 min stroll. How long it takes to climb the Tor obviously depends on your fitness but even for a pensioner with arthritis its relatively easy!
I found the town to be fascinating and will visit again just to see more of it.
Much has been said of Knight's chippie which deserves its reputation but if you're eating on a bitterly cold night in February, do it in the chippie as by the time you walk back to the site your meal will be cold.
I would also recommend the 'Who'd A Thought It?' in Northload Street for excellent beer and food.
A nice site that I have visited annually for many years. Pitches are flat and you can camp where you like, which is handy as the site can get boggy in places in wet weather.
The owners are efficient rather than friendly but that's just fine. The site is well kept with a small shop and a hot snack service, which comes in handy in the mornings. The toilet/shower block is clean and the water hot (beware the unregulated mains pressure from the cold taps!). There is no charge for the showers.
If memory serves me I paid £12/night for myself and tent.
Glastonbury town centre is a 5/10 minute walk away. All the pubs have something to recommend them, but be sure to checkout the architecture in the George and pilgrim.
Also not to be missed is the licensed fish and chip restaurant in (I think) northload street. Great grub and scrumpy cider! What's not to like about that?
Great site, we turned up unexpected at about 7pm, the office was locked up but someone came out quickly to help and book us in, I think we paid £18- £20 for a good sized pitch on hard standing with hook up for two adults and a dog. Lots of pretty hanging baskets around the buildings and trees between the pitches so you don't feel crowded by the other vans. Each shower cubicle was more like a small room with lots of space to keep clothes dry and lots of hot water. The walls of the shower/toilet block have lots of lovely art work and poems. Staff member told us the quick way into Glastonbury, a lovely site that I would definitely use again.
