Beautiful site. Very clean and excellent facilities. When we arrived we were given a few choices of where we could pitch. As we we pitching a lovely cup of tea was bought to us which made us feel very welcome.
Site has caravans and tents nestled between them with plenty of space around each unit. We were not overlooked at all.
Laundry facilities great and a £2 token to use washing machine, one of the cheapest I have come across.
The owners are friendly and on hand if you need anything.
Central to most of Somerset and a quite lovely place to camp and unwind.
We stayed at this site for just 3 nights whilst visiting friends. Wonderful warm welcome and lovely quiet site. Well maintained. There was a small shop at reception which although I didn't use would have been useful if we had been there for longer. The toilets/ showers were clean and well lit at night. The grounds were clean and tidy. There seemed to be several seasonal pitches set up, but I can understand people wanting to stay in this lovely location for longer.
Arrived on a misty drizzly afternoon in early March. Having asked for a hardstanding pitch with room for an awning we were surprised to see that only three narrow pitches remained. We ended up putting the caravan 'wrong way round' with the awning over sodden grass.
That's the downside.
Most of the site seemed to be taken up with permanently sited touring caravans. It was quiet, therefore, but not deserted. Owners were friendly and helpful and we were left to settle in after they'd dealt with a couple of things we needed.
Toilet and shower block was very good; warm, clean and tidy. It's situated fairly centrally so that it's no great distance from any pitches.
TV reception was good where we were sited. All other facilities such as water and waste areas were, like the shower block, no great distance.
There is a very good dog walk just across the road from the site entrance. It is a level path through woods.
The pub close by is essentially a folly. It has very little stock because, as we were told by a local in another pub, the owners claimed that there was no demand!
Other pubs nearby at Blagdon and Churchinford were normal and welcoming but were a drive rather than a walk.
Taunton and the Somerset Levels are nearby. As a result we were treated late one afternoon to a visit from a flock of thousands of Starlings in their murmuration, moving from perch to perch, field to field. Quite spectacular!
Had our pitch been better we would highly recommend the site. As it is, we still had an enjoyable long weekend and would consider returning. The facilities are very good and it's very good value for money.
Stayed here for two nights in our Bongo and small pop up tent.
On our arrival we were greeted by the very friendly and fellow bongo enthusiast owner. We felt very welcome and were given a pitch very close to the facilities block. As others have said we were offered tea and coffee while we set up. I can honestly say that has never happened before!
The site seemed full but my sense was that many of the caravans were seasonal and empty. There were a few people around, many with well behaved dogs.
The facilities block was spotless the entire time we were there. Very handy washing line provided. Laundry and kitchen washing up facilities also provided.
This site is definitely more caravan or campervan orientated. There is really no room for children to run around. We felt a little conspicuous in our unconverted van, cooking outside and eating on a picnic blanket!
However, if you are looking for a clean, quiet, friendly and easily accessible site I would not hesitate to recommend.
The most amazing welcome with tea brought to me while I pitched my tent in a quiet peaceful field adjacent to the main well occupied site, with great access to parking, facilities all immaculate & wonderful hosts, dog friendly, awesome location.
Recommended Hare path cycle route was immediately accessible & all access to Blackdown Hills from your tent & amazingly muddy as described after our wettest summer, but superb fun - great mountain biking - totally phenomenal & a different challenge to my local & familiar routes. Top grade walking again from site, on or off routes, again very muddy but who cares
Great showers & sun dried outfits in field really well, washing facilities if required for clothes. Local pop concert annoyed some but not me, after days walking & cycling I was out for the count, fellow campers noted the loud snoring.
Convenient to many local pubs & not far from Taunton supermarkets to stock up, but they have a good selection to get you started in store on site so you can arrive relatively unprepared & still survive well. The area is truly magnificent with much unspoiled countryside & peaceful, few people about so it's idyllic & chilling out on the campsite is so easy. HIGHLY recommended to mountain bikers & walkers, I was completely splattered head to foot & knee deep in liquid mud within a few minutes of blasting out of the campsite & the downhilling was amazing with challenging on or off road climbs forcing me to walk up in places due to the lack of grip but in drier weather the paths may be less chocolatey. Children seeing me return to site wished they too had brought their bikes & it's gonna be great if you don't mind the mud & mess, but I have to emphasise the quality of the showers & washing facilities if you want to dress for dinner later as our group did & we went to the pub quite decent.
What an amazing area, was there for a long weekend, I must return, there is so much more to cycle & explore & the off roading is endless & varied. Once again, the hosts have to be congratulated on being so informal, so laid back, so welcoming, so helpful & so caring & there isn't a single fault to report with the whole experience. The pub next door may close as it did for our group, at ten ! There is no food there as yet, that is unlikely for some time, BUT, there are other most excellent pubs a short drive away in most directions, ask the hosts, I gave one local pub a stunning review after being recommended to visit - we all loved the food, drinks & atmosphere, only five minutes drive away.
This is a remote looking campsite but with star quality benefits & a location not to be missed.
