 Spent one night here and it was a lovely quiet site situated at the bottom of the Tor.

Easy to reach the Tor in very short time. Went up to see the sunset. Wonderful experience.

Could see the Tor from my bongo camper. Wonderful view

 Great little site just at the bottom of the Glastonbury Tor and the owners were very friendly.

Easy walk into town.

Facilities were more than adequate so no complaints from us.

 Loved how close it was to the Tor and that you could walk from the campsite.

Also liked how small the site was aka that the camping and touring pitches felt separate.

Owner was helpful and friendly. Me and my dogs felt very welcome,

Would definitely go back there again.

 Lovely campsite conveniently located near Glastonbury—pavement paths leading into town—off the busy main road.

The flat hardstanding pitches were generous in size. We were on Pitch 2, which gave us ample room to set up a small camp for one night.

We would have liked to stay for a few days, but there was no availability (probably due to the equinox), so we enjoyed our one night listening to a band of drummers on the Tor and having a great view of the Harvest Moon, Jupiter and Saturn.

Edd, kindly informed us of the Covid-safe measures they have implemented, and while we were there some construction was taking place. Perhaps more self-contained cottage units are being built?

Overall, this is a campsite that I can recommend for ease of visiting Glastonbury (3-5 minute drive), Glastonbury Tor (15 minute walk to the base), and the surrounding Somerset countryside.

As others have mentioned, water supplies in the toilet blocks require opening both taps before water comes through, but only in the right-hand facilities.

The left side toilets, basins and taps are unaffected and have ample water pressure and warm water for showers.

 A stopover on our way back home from Devon. Site is on main A361 road and as such suffers a little road noise.

We went straight to our pitch, 2, which was right at the base of Glastonbury Tor.

Although a quite small site, it was well kept and Edd the owner was soon there to make sure all was ok.

Booking is probably essential as it seemed quite busy.

Good base for exploring Glastonbury, Wells, Street and Wookey Hole caves.

I think we shall return for a bit longer next time.

 Great site, level pitches close to Glastonbury Tor. Great view up the hill. Welcoming owner.

Clean quality facilities. Water in sink taps a bit erratic but owners know about it.

Shower great, hot and plentiful. The drumming from the Tor lulled us to sleep.

Will return.

 Great little site, right under the Tor.

Friendly owner, decent facilities. Only issues you might find are a bit of traffic noise from busy road (didn’t keep us awake) and the light sensors in the loo block could have been on for longer if you’re showering after dark!

Fair walk into town, but there is a route to miss most of the main road.

Reviewer: Gazza112 1 review from this member

 Great location. Good clean facilities.

Very nice, helpful owners.

The guys let us pitch as we turned up without booking and usually don’t open the tent field until later in the year to keep the pitches from damage as they are still a little wet.

Had a great time and of course appreciated the wonderful view of the Tor as you are actually sited at its base.

Will certainly be back.

Reviewer: Pagan-Buddh Pilgrim 1 review from this member

 Found the place on some website, possible this one, who knows. The road was sort of easy to find in the dark however the farm and field weren't. Would have been much easier in the daylight - no signs as such, which is odd!

But what a beautiful place: Pitched my tent facing 'Mecca' and when I pocked my head out of it I had an Easterly view of the nearby hills. Its at the foot of the Tor you know - quite literally! The downside being that if anybody is mucking about up there during the night with drums and singing etc, then that may be a pain. You don't have to take the A road all the way into Glastonbury town as the farm leads is serviced by one of the lanes - which also lead to the Tor. So walking to Chalice say, at average pace is 20 minutes. But when you do get onto the main road be damn careful!

The shower/toilet block is available 24/7 and works fine (1 mens shower out of action when I was there for 4 days). Theres also a fridge for your perishables and a very clean sink and microwave. What more could you need? *Shame the light are on timer as you have to move to trigger the sensor in the dark. Small grass area with a picnic bench.

Its only a small site but it as quite mid July. The young couple who live in the farmhouse and run it are charming, quite down to earth, even helped me pitch up in the dark! I forget the guys name. I will certainly return. £15 pn.

 Beautifully kept site within walking distance of the town centre if you have reasonable fitness and mobility.

All the facilities were good including nice size pitches and a fantastic view of the Tor one way and the Somerset Levels the other way.

The cost was at the top end of what I'm willing to pay at £25. 00 per night all inclusive of electricity and WiFi. The WiFi was good enough to stream stuff off the internet and cast it to the TV (Giro d'Italia).

The only downside was that it is very close to the A361 and the road noise was quite intrusive, although I appreciate that we all have different tolerance levels to this.

Also as we were on a cycling weekend we had to use the A361 in order to get to and from Glastonbury each day and it proved to be the worst part of all the 100 mile+ cycling we did due to the amount of traffic and lack of any viable alternative.

However, if the above concerns are not applicable to you this is a great site for exploring the Tor, Glastonbury and the surrounding area.
