Lovely site with the pitches set in amongst a wide variety of trees, tent site is accessed across a bridge and is supplied with seats and picnic tables. Owner really friendly and welcoming, facilities could do with updating but are adequate. Not a site for children as there is a pretty river running through the site which is quite deep in places and it is next to a really busy road, also not ideal for dogs as there are no footpath walks and the main road has very little verge. The site is let down by the noise from the road and railway but this is not the fault of the site. Nearest town is Frome which has bags of history but has a small town mentality and a hatred of cars, therefore unsurprisingly it seems to be dying with loads of graffiti and empty shops, however it is worth going in to get bread from The Settle, it is proper bread. Fortunately there is Asda Sainsburies Halfords Homebase etc. On the outskirts on the bypass and Trowbridge and Warminster are only a few miles away with really good shopping and free parking.

This site does have some drawbacks but we enjoyed our stay.
Arrived early evening and found nobody at reception so pitched up and then took a walk to the house where the lovely if hard of hearing owner was watching telly.
We stayed for 3 nights after only booking for two. The toilets and showers were very clean, but also very unheated and the showers did not seem to work very well and surged hot then cold causing my wife to use the one in our motor-home instead.
As for the road and railway noise we did not find it at all intrusive and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Upon our departure someone had unfortunately emptied sewage down the grey water point as the two are very close and I guess not easy to tell apart for the new camper.
The large tent field was closed, which became our games field, but I could imagine it being very difficult with only a few showers and toilets available.
This is a really clean, well kept site, with lovely weeping willows around and with a stream separating the caravans and tents. The grass was well mown and hard standings well drained. The shower block was immaculate.
However, it did have the feeling that it was a stop gap site, as people were staying for 1 or 2 nights, then moving on. There were also a couple of caravans with fellas going to and fro from work from, in the week.
We chose it, at it was near Longleat and not to far to cheddar - both fab days out.
It did rain a lot, but the hard standing was drained well, so all ok.
There was a swing for the children and the owners were happy for them to run around on the grassy areas as well. Plus we always take swingball!
The train can be heard in the distance, but all in all, a good base to go out from.
I use UK Campsite to find places to stay so feel it only fair to leave honest reviews ;
It is a lovely site, well maintained grounds well kept. As previously mentioned has a stream going through for Children to play in. Swings in the centre of the tourers, and a netball/basketball hoop behind facility block.
We stayed to visit Longleat, only ten minutes down the road, so ideal.
Large Tenting field, and can hold about 16 touring caravans, BUT only 10amp electric, which does sometimes prove a problem.
Family toilet/shower room - Ladies 2 toilets with 1 electric shower, (presume Mens the same) NO heating in the toilets, but they are kept clean and there is a hairdryer for use.
Washing up facilities, 2 sinks in separate room always clean and hot water. But would imagine long wait when busy
Overview, site is well maintained, toilets/showers kept clean, but old. Would think in busy times would not be able to cope as only two toilets and 1 shower, unless you willing to wait.
Electric 10amp proved annoying for us.
Excellent location for Longleat, Wooky hole (very good) and Cheddar Gorge (didn't go)
Pub left out of site, 1st right, mile down the road Fox & Hounds, EXCELLENT sunday Carvery, £10 adults but worth it
Sainsburys & Asda within 10 mins, Frome town 15 min away too.
Site is good, basic but clean and £16. 00 pn with EHU.
