 Stayed here for a couple of nights to get away from it all.

What a gem we found in the Kingsettle campsite.

Quiet site with large pitches, the meadow grass adds to the privacy and feeling of space, and if you are really lucky at dusk whilst sitting round the firepit, you may see barn owls hunting over the meadow.

Lovely walks on the Leyland trail and Macmillan way are within a short walk from the site.

The facilities were spotless, compostable toilets were clean and odour free.

Each pitch gets an individual bucket for recycling plus decompostable bag for general rubbish.

Jenny, the owner was so friendly, helpful and chatty, nothing was too much trouble.

When we visited this weekend, the site was full, 20 pitches, and yet it felt empty.

If you are looking for a site, to forget the troubles of life for a few days, you will not go wrong here.

Our only regret is, we have never visited before!

See you soon Jenny, we will be back!

 Stopped here for a quick mid-week night away from the city.

Gorgeous quiet site, spacious pitches, all facilities spotlessly clean, and lovely, helpful owner in Jenny.

Fire packs for use with the fire pits well worth purchasing.

 One of the best campsites we have stayed in. Spacious pitches with firepit area separated from other pitches with wild flower areas which were full of wildlife.

Composting toilets, clean showers and recycling actively encouraged.

Jenny the manager was lovely and really helpful.

Reviewer: Neolith 1 review from this member

 If your idea of camping involves WiFi, luxurious shower blocks, on site bar and entertainment, this is not the camp site for you. If on the other hand you want a peaceful place where the air is clean and the intrusions of the modern world slip away then this is the spot.

The site itself is on Kingsettle Hill near Bruton at the foot of the hill leading to Alfreds Tower and a few minutes drive to Stourhead. Itís close to the village of Bruton and just a few miles from Frome.

The field has 20 pitches dotted around a large field. When I was there the grass in the field was knee high but the pitches and the access to them had been mowed giving a curious sense of privacy to each pitch. Facilities are limited to two composting toilets and a single gas powered shower all of which were spotless.

Unusually each site has a small fire pit and the owner sells compound sawdust fire logs. If you wanted to barbecue over the pits you would need to bring your own charcoal.

The site has two unique features both new this year, a converted cattle trailer and a shepherds hut. I had booked the cattle trailer and Jenny, the owner, was still sewing the curtains when I arrived. Itís cosy, comfortable and is big enough to sleep two. It has a small barbecue and chimenea and plenty of space round it for a couple of cars and even another tent.

There are plans to develop this further adding an outdoor kitchen. The Shepherds hut arrived whilst I was there, it isnít yet fitted out but itís been converted to the same high standard as the cattle trailer. Finally, the welcome is friendly and I got the impression that nothing could be two much trouble.

When I was moving into the trailer it became apparent that a couple of wedges to hold the doors open would be a good idea. I said there was no rush, they appeared an hour later.

This really is a delightful place.

 We loved Jenny's campsite which was surrounded by fields and hedgerows with views of Alfred's Tower to the east and sunsets to the west. Large mown spaces give plenty of room and privacy.

This site is great if you want your own space without crowding. We loved the long grass full of meadow flowers that surrounded the mown areas and appreciated the dark, starlit night skies (there are no electric lights on the site).

The facilities include compost toilets and a simple but very effective gas shower. These are cleaned twice a day and are very well looked after.

This site is really well cared for by Jenny who visits campers twice a day and is friendly, welcoming and continues to develop the site in a creative way.

 We stayed at this idyllic campsite on a suddenly rainy and wild weekend in my Bongo. It was such a lovely spot, pitches separated by blowing grasses, with sunken firepits and views across the surrounding countryside.

We stayed as a couple and it was perfect for us, tranquil and relaxing and fantastic for watching the storm blow through. Facilities are basic but charming and very clean.

Location is great for walking, a local pub and all the sophistication of nearby Bruton. Jenny is absolutely lovely and made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this campsite.

Reviewer: Minerva14 24 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for 5 nights and would have stayed longer but had a family commitment. We've been to many certificated sites, and thoroughly enjoyed most of them, but for us this has to be the best! As stated on their website it is a 7 acre field and the pitches really are huge.

To the left of the site entrance is a very large area marked 'groups' which speak for itself. The individual pitches are to be found by driving straight down the clearly mown path. Most pitches have fire pits. While we were there we were the only caravan; there were a number of tents and one or two short stay camper vans.

Fresh water, waste water, CDP and refuse are close to the entrance, as are the shower, and the two separate composting toilets. There is no electric hook up on site which suits us perfectly as we have solar panels. Mobile phone reception was perfectly adequate.

Jenny the owner is very friendly, and she keeps the site as environmentally friendly as possible. She cleans the facilities regularly and is on hand if you have any questions. She works very hard and deserves much praise for this site.

We had our 4 small dogs with us and walked their legs off along the many trails and paths around, including the forest which is part of the Stourhead estate. We chose to walk up to King Alfred's Tower which you can see from the site but it is all uphill so you can drive and park there to start your walks if you prefer.

The lane outside the site is mostly single track with passing places. We had no problem towing our caravan up and down. The site is in a very rural area with lots of places to walk and free of traffic noise.

We will most definitely return to this site.

 We had a fabulous visit, on two separate occasions.

We arrived by cycles, tired and in need of rest. Jenny, the site owner could not do enough for us to make our stay pleasant and comfortable.

Her positive energy and friendliness made us forget our fatigue and soon we were all laughing.

We were very pleased with the site layout, the very clean facilities along with the option to buy food for breakfast in the morning.

Keep up the good work, Jenny. We hope to see you again soon.
