Reviewer: Linda Stephen 1 review from this member

 We have just returned from a 5 night stay, checked availability online, booked over phone, paid first night as deposit [non refundable]. Good pitch, slight slope but flat surface. Electric hook up worked fine. Facilities clean, soap and toilet roll and hand towels provided, very green site, solar energy and recycling. Good local info provided. Outdoor washing up and inside one too, only one sink but always hot water. Not packed so plenty of room for the cricket, badminton and rounders that our two older boys enjoy! A new wooden adventure climbing type thing was being installed while we were there. People with younger children might not find this sight user friendly.

The worst thing about the site was the noise from the road and the price. We never got an undisturbed night but then we don't live on a main road so not used to lots of traffic. We were a party of 3 adults and two children with tent and two cars and the costs was 32.00 a night, bit steep for my liking.

There was a good farm shop only ten minutes walk away that sold everything we needed - beautiful steak for the bar-b-que!

The site is in a good position for lots of site seeing. We had a day at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Brunels SS Great Britain, Cheddar Gorge, the Cheddar Cheese Factory, Bristol Town Centre and boat trip on the river. We even managed a trip to Swansea for an evening meal with the relatives!

 I was amazed by how much it cost for 1 night for a tent, 2 adults & a toddler - £23. The other 2 campsites we stayed at during the same trip cost £9 & £12.50). The owners seemed very nice & there were good facilities toilet-wise, & with freezer, etc but it's right next to a busy A road.

 Excellent camp site run by a retired couple who were helpful and friendly and went the extra mile to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Tidy and clean facilities and always got a hot shower. Very green camp site which was great to see with separate bins for recycling of food waste, plastics, tin and glass. Farm shop very close by which was open 7 days. Close to the A38 and the site is well surrounded with lots of trees so we did not find noise a problem.

Overall had a great time, pool was a lovely bonus when the sun was out.

 We stayed here for a long weekend. We were allocated a flat pitch with nice short grass. There were only about six units on site over our three night stay- this was good as there was only one working womens shower. The shower was clean with plenty of hot water. The washing up facilities, recycling, toilets and wash basins were kept clean and in good working order. The couple that run the site could not have been more helpful with local knowledge and directions.

On the negative side, the noise from the A38 was constant over 24hrs, as the airport is only a couple of miles away. The pitches are expensive at £25 a night- which is really double what we usually pay.

During our stay we visited, Wells, Glastonbury, Weston Super Mare and Bristol (HMS Great Britain).

 Very enjoyable visit to Brook Lodge Farm.

This is a delightful campsite run by a friendly retired couple, who were very helpful and offered plenty of local advice, directing us to good local pubs and attractions.

The campsite itself is well kept, with nice pitches. The new toilet and shower block is great with free hot showers (and is also solar powered!) and clean toilets. Also there were lots of nice touches such as there was always liquid soap next to a sink to wash your hands and paper towels to dry your hands, always washing up liquid next to a sink (and dish cloth if you forget yours) and good toilet roll is also provided.
On the other side of the shower block is an information point with plenty of fliers for local attractions and road maps so you can find your way around. There is a fridge and freezer you can also use to put your food in if necessary. The site also employs recycling and has bins for most types of wate, something I was pleased to see.

There was a decent size nice pool that was great for me and my friends to have a swim and and cool down in the July sun.

It is located just off the A38, so its very easy to find. If you are a very very light sleeper you might want to bring some ear plugs if you suspect might be woken by the noise of the road, however no one in our party of 8 had any trouble sleeping!

In summary, delightful stay will be returning same time next year! Thank-you Brook Lodge :)

 If you're looking for a basic this is fine. But very expensive for what's on site- expect to pay more than CaravanClub sites. Website says refurbished toilet block which turns out to be new tiles and two electric showers in ladies (one not working) but old toilets and fittings.
Website also says country walks direct from site which is not quite possible without walking along roads not at all suitable for young children. Electric hook up was dodgy. And lots of workmen living in caravans, even two living in a tent! quite odd. The position is ideal for travelling out and about but we didn't feel secure leaving our stuff.

 Road noise is a real issue as the site is right next to the busy A38.  We found it very expensive for an ‘out of season’ pitch.  We also paid £2.50 per night for an unreliable electricity supply.  Toilet block is clean though and not to far away. Recycling bins were full but at least the site recycles. Pool looks lovely but is very cold. Their is a small woodland type of play area for children to enjoy. More likely to look around for another site rather than return.

 We liked this campsite very much, it had good facilities and was friendly. It's close to some really cool stuff so good location! We found the owners welcoming and friendly. They couldn't do enough to help us!  Suited us v. Well. We'll definitely come back. Would recommend.

 We visited Brook Lodge for the Bank Holiday weekend, May 2006. The preceding 2 weeks had seen a lot of rain, so we called 3 days before leaving and were assured that the site was not waterlogged in anyway.
We were greeted on arrival by the owners daughter, who was very apologetic and explained that it had become very wet, but did her best to ensure we found the driest pitch she could.

The owners, quite rightly, were not allowing cars onto the grass, but this was not really a problem as none of the pitches were more than 20 metres from the site road. The site is along a short road / track, and there is no turning facility at the end. We had to unhitch our trailer to turn around, so I would imagine somebody with a large caravan might struggle. To be fair it might not be a problem when its dry as the owners probably direct cars over the grass.

The site is situated a short drive from Weston-Super-Mare, and is also handy for Bath and Bristol. Its location only 15 minutes from the M5 would make an ideal stop-over for the long journey to Cornwall. It is alongside a very fast stretch of the A38, so it has to said that road noise is a factor. The pitches along the bottom of the site, next to the stream, might not be affected as much, but I have to be honest and say that it was far from a quiet site.

The site is slightly sloping and runs down to a stream. There is a lot mature tree cover, however none of the pitches remain in the shade all day. The facilities are excellent. The showers are free, hot and powerful. They were very clean and well kept. The washing up facilities were again excellent. The site even provides a bowl, washing up liquid, washing up brushes / scrubbers etc, and even a tea towel; along with gallons of hot water for washing up. There is a fridge / freezer for your use. There was a washing machine, but I did not notice whether it was charged for. EHU is only 6 amps

On the site there is a dry barn that has seating and picnic benches, providing those with smaller tents somewhere undercover to eat etc. There is a small adventure type playground for older children in a small wooded area. The reception is accessed through a beautiful walled garden, this too has benches with a nice lawned area. To the side of this the owners have created a fantastic small area for small children / toddlers with mini play house, slide etc. They have even provided bats, balls etc.!

The owners are very friendly, and always helpful. They even fetched us some fish and chips as we arrived at tea time.!

To surmise, lovely small site, excellent facilities, nice friendly owners and very well located. Will more than likely go back at some point.

 This is a small campsite run by a nice family. Facilities are OK - adequate for what you need but nothing more. It is opposite the Holiday Inn on the A38 into Bristol so is quite handy for Bristol.

They wanted to charge £4 to wash and dry one load of washing, which considering it was their own washing machine I thought was a bit expensive.

Didn't use pool as it was too cold and couldn't park next to my tent as it was too boggy (had been raining very heavily).

They did have a useful guide to local shops and restaurants which was appreciated.
