Perfect. A friendly welcome. Dog-friendly. The site is lovely; flat, secluded in parts, beautiful flower and shrub beds a-plenty with a stream and leat passing through. All really well cared for. Smashing loos and shower and dish wash room; ultra clean with nice homely finishing touches. The view of the Quantocks is great. Super dog walking area, large ball playing area, children's' play area, pitch and putt, games, recycling. Quiet and secluded. Very reasonably priced (12 campervan with 2 persons - end of July).

Sadly, we were passing through the area and were only able to stay for one night, but will definitely return to this site and explore the area.

Stayed here for Spring Bank half term week, the site was noticeably quiet considering it was a school holiday.

We were the only tent on site so the owner put us in one of the three caravan fields so we'd be near everyone else, very thoughtful of her! We have quite a large tent and I'd prewarned her about that on booking, so the pitch we had was a good size, plenty of room and fairly flat. (Although after checking around the site I realised all the tent pitches were a generous size. ) Hedges separate each field and are full of birds singing, quite lovely to sit and watch the wildlife.

The tent pitches are located at the opposite side of the campsite (2 have EHU), near the playground and the resident donkeys. Field looked nice for camping in, we wouldn't have minded being in there, except for having to open and close two gates to enter the field (because of the donkeys).

The playground was excellent, lots of swings and a big slide, big field to play ball games in, a stream running through the site for pond dipping, a small pond with a boat that you can row about on (apparently there was a missing rowlock so no boating occurred during our visit), and a croquet lawn/9-hole putting green (all equipment available to borrow). My children (age 9 and 6) spent a lot of time over there playing.

There's a little shop (open Mon-Sat 10-11 am) that sells camping accessories and limited food essentials (and sweets!). Adjacent to the shop is a charity shop selling old camping gear, books, and clothing (we donated an old lantern), and with tourist information leaflets.

The toilet and shower block is central to the site and easily accessed from the caravan fields (would be a tedious walk from the tent field in the middle of the night). There are 2-3 toilets and two showers separate for men and women (no family room); they were always clean and we never had to queue but there was an odd sluice thing running through the block that was obviously designed to remove water but was full of fluff and made the block smell sometimes). The showers are push button and don't stay on for long (we were warned by the owner that they are very cold to start with; it was nice to have a warning even though most camp showers are pretty cold to start with/all the time).

Lots of signs in the toilets reminding caravaners to use the correct toilet fluid (don't dream of using the blue one) and listing all the rules. Shame the rules aren't on the website so we could memorise them in advance rather than while brushing teeth. Another sign asks us not to take the hot water but rather to purchase it for 20p from the washing-up area (located at the rear of the toilet block). 20p basically unlocks the hot tap, but it didn't get hot enough to wash up with, save your 20p and boil a kettle.

Quite an extensive selection of recycling and rubbish bins, nice to be able to recycle like we do at home.

Overall, a bit of a hidden gem of a site.

Location is good, off the A39 and close to Bridgwater. There's a Morrison's and Sainsbury's for food shopping, and a small Spar in Cannington. During our stay we visited Minehead, Taunton, and Weston-super-Mare, all less than an hour drive away. For those who like walking, the Quantock Hills are on the doorstep; we did the circular walk at Great Wood and Ramscombe, very easy for children (2 miles on easy paths, 2 to park). Dunster Castle is not far away (although we didn't visit this time), and you must (not) visit the Bakelite Museum in Williton (we did, it's 'the world's largest collection of vintage plastics' and in our defense it was raining. )

We stayed here just 1 night, and found this a nice quiet country park, mainly caravans were pitched with awnings, and looked like they were seasonal. We had a pitch on hard standing, suited us perfectly with water and electric supply close by. It was very dark at night, no lighting at all, but the solar lights at various caravans provided some colourful lighting. Prepare by taking a torch with you! the toilet and shower block very clean and non slip floors, we didn't use the washup area, as you have to pay 20p, but we had our own facilities. The views were lovely of the lakes and streams, also the water mill was very quaint! it was a little strange to hear a sound of 'music' off site somewhere in the distance, maybe from another park in the area?, it went on until the small hours, but apart from this we found this a lovely site just to mention, we had a lovely drink in a local pub, The Rose and Crown, in Cannington, nearby, there are some 'interesting items all over, including the 'ceiling!'

A most pleasant small site.

Simple but always clean and adequate facilities: showers are fine as are the toilets.

Helpful and friendly staff.

Pleasant pitches and some with good views.

Useful shop for the odd emergency needs, and some luxuries too.

Good access to Bridgewater shops and to coast and the Mendips.

Fine easy walking on the Mendips, or a bit more demanding if you wish.

Simple children's playground for those few spare minutes when exercise is needed.

This is a fantastic friendly site.

The children enjoyed the swimming pool, the site shop and the playground the most. They also had a wonderful time splashing in the streams, boating on the pond and making friends with the donkeys.

The site is situated in beautiful countryside and is close to lots of visitor attractions for days out.

We will definitely be making a return visit!

Our children are 7, 8 & 11.

A lovely quiet rural site, with excellent dog walking areas. We were placed on a hardstanding pitch which was excellent due to recent bad weather.

The site owner very friendly and had a good knowledge of the area if you needed it. The toilet block very clean, the only downside are the showers, they take a while to warm and just as you get a warm flow they stop, the shower cubicles have only a hook on the door so keeping all your things off the floor a bit of a juggling act, a small stool would have been great.

A lot of the pitches taken with sited tourers.

It is a fairy rural site and its a car journey to reach most places.

We would certainly be more than happy to return to this site and would recommend it for a lovely peaceful and relaxing holiday.
