Why stay here ...

The Cl is set in a paddock adjoining our home. Level grass pitches are available on both sides of the paddock with hook-ups (10 amps). Access is easy for all size vehicles through a wide gateway. Anti slip terran has been added to pitches and track way to help in poor weather. 

The amenities consist of recycle bins, water tap, and a chemical closet point which is on the mains sewerage. There is also a metal bin for used BBQ coals. We have an adjoining grass tennis court with BBQ area and a hut with plenty of information on the immediate local area and wider district. Some Tennis racquets and balls are available for use.

TV reception is good here but you will need your own WiFi. EE is the best mobile WiFi in this area.

We are in the heart of the countryside situated next to a working farm surrounded by farmland so dogs need to be on a lead and under control. The village has a network of footpaths and lanes with grass verges which are suitable for dog walking with leads.

The parish of Kingston Seymour is situated on the North Somerset Levels between the towns of Clevedon and Weston-Super-Mare. The shore of the Severn Estuary forms its western boundary. The village itself is a small active community with a population of approximately 400 residents, with an ancient Church and Village Hall around which many of its events revolve. The Bridge Inn, a Hungry Horse Restaurant is situated at the approach to Kingston Seymour and includes a large children's indoor soft play area.

Tesco, Asda, Lidl and Aldi can all be found at Clevedon (4 miles) which also has a range of independent specialist shops. There is a good selection of pubs, restaurants and food takeaways at Clevedon, which is a quaint, picturesque, Victorian seaside resort (pebbles only), with a famous grade one listed pier and the oldest working cinema in the world (The Curzon).

Nearby to Kingston is Yatton (2.5 miles). This has a Co-Op and small selection of independent shops, post office, takeaways, eating places and pubs. There is also a mainline railway station which is very useful for connections to Bristol, Bath and Weston-Super-Mare.

Buses run regularly from Clevedon and Yatton to Portishead, Bristol, Weston-super-Mare and surrounding districts. Vehicles can always be parked at unrestricted parking places in both Clevedon or Yatton to use the bus services.

Kingston Seymour village and the wider district are excellent for walking, cycling and course fishing. There are plenty of opportunities for golfing within 3 to 4 miles. The Seawall with views over to Wales is only a 20 minute walk from the CL. Nature and bird watchers will find much to satisfy themselves because the rhynes, ditches and hedgerows support abundant wildlife.

We are excellently situated for the West Country attractions of Bristol, Bath, Weston-super-Mare, Cheddar, Wells and the Mendip Hills. Nearby are the National Trust properties of Tyntesfield House and Clevedon Court. Family days out include Brunel's SS Great Britain Museum ship, Noah's Ark Zoo Farm, Bristol Zoo and the open air heated Lido at Portishead.

A gem of a place

Used this lovely CL for one night en route to Cornwall but could easily have stayed longer. Quiet and surrounded by lovely countryside. A sign on entering Kingston Seymour would have been helpful as it's along a long lane and we thought we may have missed it but our 7.4 metre caravan was able to access with ease. Lovely big pitches, good clean facilities and a charming owner. We will return.

Really lovely and peaceful site

It was my first time staying in a CL site and I now understand the appeal. So peaceful with only 5 units, really nice large pitches on flat grass, and a warm welcome from the owner. There is nothing I can fault. This place is perfect for my needs as I am quite self sufficient and don't run a load of gadgets at the same time. Only the sound of ducks and sheep to disturb you. I will definitely be back.

Gem of a site!

Jane is very welcoming and her site is easy to get to and access. Beautifully kept site and so peaceful. Huge pitches and all mostly level. Six amps did not bother us and this was excellent value for money. Ideal stop over to and from the West Country, but also for longer stays in Clevedon - quaint Victorian town - and also not too far from Weston super Mare with its huge sandy beaches. Several walks from site along footpaths and quiet country lanes. Highly recommended and thanks to Jane for her hospitality.

A really welcoming site

We have visited this site twice now, firstly at Easter-time and then last week. Jane gave us a very warm welcome on both occasions. The site was quite wet on the first visit but we managed to get our camper van on and off okay. Since then Jane has laid an all weather grid in the field which should make the pitches accessible in all weathers. We do not have many electrical appliances so had no problem with the 1200 watts limit. Jane did offer to lend us a low wattage kettle or heater if needed. This is a lovely site down a quiet lane on the edge of a beautiful old village. There are fields around teeming with wildlife and it is a great place to walk or cycle from. We can fully recommend it!
