Why stay here ...

Our CL is located on a working farm and livery yard where we have a young vineyard and our own distillery. We are just off the A39 which gives easy access (including bus routes) to the cities of Bath, Bristol and Wells along with links to the Bristol Channel resorts of Weston-Super-Mare, Clevedon and Burnham-on-Sea. We are a 30 acre farm with 1 acre set aside for the CL.

Home produced sausages, cider, wine, gin and other spirits are available to purchase on site from our own vineyard and distillery. It is possible to participate in one of our cider making or tasting courses with booking in advance on selected dates. Home produced sausages and faggots– and other meat products are available, please ask.

The site is located in a flat field with good access and sheltered by a mature hedge. We support sustainable farming principles so at certain times of the year we allow the flower meadows to grow to ensure good seed heads are set, hedges remain untrimmed to ensure wildlife has a sanctuary and good winter food supply and bird nesting in the spring. Our hardstandings sometimes have weeds in them - this is because we do not use weed killer or other harmful chemicals on our farm, as we also have bees and following organic principles. In breeding season, the grass is not always neatly mowed - however this does means there is an extensive variety of wild life, including many types of birds, to be seen during your stay.

Our electric hook-up points give out 16amps of power.

Wi-Fi is not available, if needed please bring your own Dongle

Our local pub the Butchers Arms is a 5-minute drive away and serves both excellent food and beer.

The local villages all have small but well stocked shops with chip shops in both Timsbury and High Littleton and a Chinese in Temple Cloud

We are on a direct bus route to Bath 179 (Weekdays only), Bristol 178 and Wells 172 (via Paulton) if needed.

Please Note: We accept arrivals between 2pm & 6pm weekdays, and 2pm to 4pm at weekends and Bank Holidays. Other times can be available BUT by prior arrangement only. We cannot accept double-axle caravans between 1st October and 31st March. Cancellation policy issued at time of booking.

For details about our site please check our website or email us.

Jackie and Tim look forward to welcoming you to their CL.

Nice site in the country side

Willow Farm

Very friendly welcome, level pitches with a bonus of having a vineyard. You can sample gin,  buy wine, cider and sausages, all made at the farm.

Great little CL

Willow Farm
When I booked this site there were no reviews - it was a recommendation from someone who had stayed there. I was a little therefore a little nervous when I saw the review that appeared just before I was due to stay! However I need not have feared. If you are expecting mown lawns and full CAMC facilities then this is not the place for you. If you want a proper CL, camping in a wild flower meadow, peace and quite with bee hives and sheep next door then it is. There are also free range pigs (and fantastic sausages to buy) and horses. Access to the site was easy, although there is one turn that could be a bit tight if you have a really, really long motorhome. The site and facilities are tidy and clean, no problem with recycling which is all clearly labelled (along with a what goes where leaflet that was sent to me at time of booking) and I saw no skip of manure...a friendly site where my neighbouring motorhomer for the stay was a regular visitor and pointed me in the direction of the cider and wine they also make and sell on the farm. Good bus route into Bath during the week although it seems more patchy at weekends. Would definitely stay again.

Worst CL we have ever stayed on and we have stayed on CL's for years.

Willow Farm
On arrival we were greeted by the owner who seemed quite a nice fellow and told where we could pitch our motorhome after we had paid him, he pointed at a dirty hosepipe on the ground and stated that is your drinking water, we declined the kind offer of his filthy hosepipe and used our own food grade hosepipe to fill up our water tank, the entrance to the site was overgrown and tress scraped along the side of our motorhome as we entered the CL, the pitches were all overgrown, the site was full of old building rubbish and scrap metal, there were no rubbish bins, the chemical toilet disposal point looked like it had never been cleaned and you had to negotiate around yet more building rubbish to access it, the owners dog was running freely so we had to leave our little dog inside the motorhome the entire time, behind the pitches was a skip full of manure (I expect country smells when staying on a farm but do not expect to be pitched adjacent to approx 10 tonnes of steaming manure). This could be a nice CL but I think the owner has taken his eye off the ball and let it go.
