 Stayed when I was going to the Pilton Party at the Glastonbury Festival site. It couldn't be any handier, only just over a mile away.

As per previous reviews stated the owners are really friendly. Yes, the campsite which they have recently took over needs modernisation which they know, but it is clean and tidy and relatively inexpensive.

Absolutely wonderful for dog owners with loads of footpaths just outside the site. Especially if you don't mind hills. You can use footpaths right through the festival site.

Being in the back field there was no traffic noise.

 Great little find, super friendly and helpful owners. The only campsite we have visited that have made our little dogs feel at home.

Lovely warm showers, clean toilets. Microwave and fridge freezer available to use.

A nice big secure dog walking field.

Will be visiting again

 I was looking for somewhere near Glastonbury that offered hard standings, due to poor weather, and I needed a shower after the last site did not have any, so this site appeared in my search on here and I sent an enquiry.

The owner was quick to respond and let me know the prices and told me they had space. I confirmed and headed up.

The site is easy to find and is directly off the main road into Glastonbury. It is a fairly busy road, however the house and barns are blocking the road from the site which helps dampen the noise. I was in a campervan, so it did not affect me at all, but in a tent you may hear road noise.

Check in was quick and friendly and I duly paid my £13 for one night for a campervan, me and my dog with electric hookup. I f I had gone non hookup it would have been £8 for the night, what a bargain.

Pitches are either grass or hard standing, and I went for hard standing due to the weather and hooked up. Nice spacious pitch and perfect for what I needed, there was grass to the side if I had wanted to put up the awning, but decided against it as it was just one night.

Facilities are great and consist of chemical disposal, recycling, fresh water, two toilets and one shower in the mens, presume the same in the ladies, and two communal showers. All were very clean and secure and well lit at night. There was also a washing you sink and fridge / freezer for campers to use. They had some info leaflets on the area too.

Unfortunately the pub across the road, The Apple Tree Inn, has now closed their doors, as from early Jan 2020. Bit gutted as I fancied a pint and a bite to eat, but not to worry. The road is busy, but it is walkable and about 4 miles into Glastonbury.

Glastonbury is awesome and very chilled / hippy like with lots of quirky shops and of course the normal shops, supermarkets on offer.

The area in general has loads to see and do and I for one will be back when needed a base for the area. A great site, well done all.

 The site was tidy, toilet block and showers were also clean and the free showers were hot.

The dog walk field was great, as it was secure and fine to let the dogs run about in.

It was quiet that week and we were the only tourer for the week, with a few others for a night or two and a few longer term stayers.

The pub over the road was friendly and did great food.

 Think we were an afterthought!

We arrived to be shown to a grass spot with a power extension lead hanging over a fence and running from the home on the main site. We got no welcome information or told where facilities were. We had to work this out.

Facilities were very basic. There were a handful of proper hard standing pitches with electric and other numbered pitches, but not ours. Our location so near to the house, felt rather exposed as we endured tractors driving right past our pitch, cars turning almost under our awning and taxis being cleaned a few feet from us.

The first night our nearest neighbours decided to start a party with music at 1am, even though the site rules state no music after 11pm. The party went on for some time, so we had to ask them to stop the noise. They eventually went quiet. I reported this to the owner by phone, whilst we were on site and they were not interested, just saying there is a 11pm curfew and hung up on me.

The site is close to the Glastonbury festival site, but you have to walk along grass verges along a fast road to get there. At times it felt quite dangerous.

Our second night was better with the noisy neighbours leaving. The pub across the way had a function on which was audible until midnight. Our location on site was close to the busy main road, so there was traffic noise most of the time.

It was not the peaceful site we expected, the owners were not very helpful and we seemed to have paid the going rate on site for a pitch that wasnít actually a pitch. I think they had overbooked. I canít see us going back. It was pretty grim.

 We had 5 nights at Ashcombe Farm from 14th -19th Sept 2016. Carol was very helpful and the pitches are all pan flat, generous and well groomed. The toilets and showers are clean but very basic.

Nice pub across the road from the site that does food.

Fantastic position for the Glastonbury festival

The site is quite close to the road that joins Glastonbury to Shepton Mallet and we found the noise from the road an issue if you like it nice and quiet.

Also, the next field has residential campers in tourers and we did have to ask Carol to ask them to reduce the music booming through the fence at night on one occasion.

All in all, a nice site but the road noise was an issue
