To Find Site:- The site is about 4 miles from junction 25 on the M5 at Taunton. Follow A38 towards Taunton. At the first set of traffic lights turn left towards Corfe on the B3170. The campsite is well signed along the route. The final approach does narrow in places. Once over the motorway bridge the entrance to the site is left turn in about 50 metres.

Cornish Farm is a small basic campsite with an open aspect not far from junction 25 on the M5 at Taunton and is open all year. Reception sells a few essentials including a good range of caravan/motorhome bits. There are 48 pitches, 25 of which are hardstanding on gravel. The hardstanding pitches are quite long but not very wide so it would be a tight fit to get caravan and awning without encroaching on the grass. There seem to be a number of seasonal campers on site. Electric points are convenient to the pitches and are rated at 10 amps. Likewise water points are dotted around the site. There is a very nice quality central toilet block which also contains washing machines and a dishwash area. Next to the toilet block is a motorhome service point. The site has free WiFi although not the strongest signal I have used. There are no facilities for children. Being close to the M5 there is some background hum from the motorway although you quickly get used to it.

This campsite is a convenient stopover near to the M5. It would also be a useful place to stay to visit the surrounding area. For motorhomers Vanbitz the motorhome specialist fitter of accessories is right next door. Taunton is a busy commercial centre with a good range of shops. The Museum of Somerset, in the town, is worth a detour and its free. Just off junction 25 is a large Sainsburys with a fuel station that is suitable for motorhomes.

Found this site to be perfect for our stop off en-route to Devon, was easy to locate, and wardens gave us a very warm welcome. The toilet and showers were perfect, very clean and warm. The field is flat and also convenient to the racecourse.

Only annoyance were some inconsiderate campers allowing dogs to run free at the bottom of the site, they seem to be long stayers who have become complacent to the rules.

Hopefully the new wardens will spot this and then the site will indeed be perfect.

Stayed here for free whilst Vanbitz (adjacent!) fitting extras to our van. Excellent site in every way - and very friendly and helpful people! Just found very pleasant off-road path into Taunton. (1 & 1/2 miles. Taunton very pleasant town - in fact we would consider staying here again whether or not the wonderful Vanbitz were working on our van! Many thanks to family.

Free Wifi and good TV reception by the way. Only downside site is quite remote - no pubs round the corner! Follow directions from their website rather than satnag. Will be back!

New compact but well thought out 50 pitch site located 2 miles outside Taunton. Most pitches are hardstanding with grass division between sites.

The central facilities block is modern and clean but with only 2 showers and WC (in male) may prove busy is site is full.

Site has direct access to the numerous footpaths that criss-cross the area and is only mile from Taunton racecourse. Taunton is an easy 2 mile walk/bike ride mainly on off road marked lanes/paths.

Nearest convenience store is 1 mile from site.

Downside, the site runs parallel to the M5 with its relentless background drone. However this is not loud enough to block out the bird song so not too intrusive. Another item is the bizarre fresh water taps that are time based percussion with no hose connection. Not ideal when trying to fill a 120 litre water tank!

Bonus free site WiFi with very good connection.

Just spent 3 nights here. This is a small site about a forty minute walk from Taunton. A convenience store is a twenty minute walk away as is a bus stop into Taunton.

We judge sites to a large extent on their toilet blocks and these passed with flying colours! We didn't meet the owners but on arrival our pitch number was written on a board at reception.

Very open site (old apple orchard) which was great for satellite reception!

We would gladly return.

Very much a stopping off place for tourers and motor homes - as tent dwellers we felt that this site was geared more towards motorised visitors. Can't fault cleanliness of facilities or the friendly wardens but we won't be returning. Motorway noise is probably more of an issue in tents and the exposed location made the site very windy indeed. Very good value site though if you have a need to be in Taunton or want to use as a base for touring the local area. Lots of NT properties nearby!
