We have just had 3 days at Phippins and what a truly lovely site. Frank and Barbara so welcoming and friendly, the site is beautifully kept, everything is so clean and tidy. Although we did not meet the owner it is obvious he takes enormous care to keep everything tip top.

A lovely walk to the pub, good honest no frills pub grub, and Speckled Hen on draft!

Super walks along the river bank in either direction and a walk to the cider farm is a must.

The site is also very peaceful and no children!

We have loved it thank you all and we will return.

There in nothing endearing about this campsite. So much noise from m5. Neighbour arrived at 0720 making noise on gravel whilst parking. Just what I didn't need after the background m5 all night. Local pub is cheap food and not well kept ale. Ugh. Showers 20p for 2 minutes and the coin box is in the main toilet so either lose a minute or dash out naked and run back quickly

Management response: We are sorry that this customer had a bad experience at our site. I believe that we were used us as an overnight stop on route elsewhere and so the customer was looking for somewhere easily accessible and close to major roads and with his small camper he effortlessly fitted into one of our large flat pitches . Sadly with these advantages come the disadvantage that you might hear the roads that were so convenient for your journey on occasions when the wind carries the sound towards the site. We are on the edge of the Somerset levels with no obstructions for miles other than vegetation and as a result any significant 'noise' will be heard. And this is true of any campsite in our area within 10 miles of wind carried noise as the only other noise is wildlife. We apologize if a neighbour entered the site before 1000hrs. We discourage this as we are aware that our customers are on holiday and like to lie in. But some customers 'must' have their early morning paper and drive off to get it rather than walk or cycle to the nearby village newsagents.

The local pub, The Bason Bridge Inn, (10 mins walk from site along the river side path) does provide reasonably priced food and usually stocks two or three real Ales. After this review I visited the pub with a friend I had a Golden Hen and my friend a Speckled Hen both were excellent and we drank them in the well-kept beer garden behind the pub. We then sauntered down to the Crown and had a pint of Hobgoblin (at 5.7% this is a favourite of mine) before strolling back to the site. I would however recommend that when using a quieter country pub that sells Ale, which these are, that you enquire if the beer has been in frequent use that day or ask to try a sample before purchasing.

Use of the showers is described on our website and there are instructions for use in the toilet
block. Admittedly some pre-planning is required and a minimum pre-load of 40p is recommended for a man with short hair (for 40p you could also get a couple of licks of an ice cream or two slurps of beer or a cappuccino). If people are coming for a prolonged stay at our site I recommend that they time themselves in their shower at home to determine precisely how many multiples of 20p are required to achieve the required minutes on site. Personally when on holiday and using coin operated showers I tend to over indulge and stick in a whole 1. Tim - Site Owner

What a great site in an great location, on arrival we were shown our pitch and basically left to our own devices (which was great) as some sites we have been on the wardens go on and on with site rules.

The grounds are immaculate and most pitches are flat with hard standing. Our only gripe is it's a little sparse between pitches and a shame there isn't any privacy hedges or bushes.

The wash rooms are Ok and kept clean and tidy.

There is a public house a short walk along the river bank in the near by village,

Over all a good site and Tim (site owner) should be highly commended

Been going to Phippins farm for a total of 10 years now and I can honestly say that if you want peace and quiet and a spotlessly clean site, then you need not look any further. We are going again on Friday and I cannot wait. Tim, and Frank & Barbara, do an excellent job of keeping this site one of the best.

Had a lovely wide hardstanding pitch right by the river. Site very quiet and toilets/showers fairly modern. Plenty of bird life about-Great spotted and Green Woodpeckers seen, Little Owl heard and Reed Warblers singing along the river bank. Walked to the Bason Bridge pub along the river bank which is a bit of a village local with limited food menu and Old Speckled Hen on draught. The other pub the Crown was shut during my visit. Great site for a stop off from the M5.

Have loved this site all through the spring and summer. Adults only which is just as well as you are right on the edge of the river Blue, for fishing and bird watching and walking to the pub. So now that Tim has installed heating in the showers and is open through the winter, we can continue to visit this fabulous site.
