Lovely CL site

We visited this site about a month ago now. What can I say, it was one of the nicest Cl sites we have stayed. Easy access on to site from main road. The site is exceptionally clean and tidy and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely return to stay at this site.

A Haven for All

Once again, a delightful couple of brief stays at Southfield, where Roz and Nick have done great things in the short time they have been there. Quite apart from the delightful and spacious site, with its thoughtful touches like the floral displays as you enter, the excellent area for brief dog-exercising and facilities for 'natural fall-out', this time the extra provision of sanitisers everywhere was particularly pertinent and appreciated. They both put themselves out for their guests with an extremely warm welcome, with tea and biscuits on offer as one settles in, making a genuinely warm and friendly atmosphere throughout one's stay. On each visit it seems improvements are being made and there is no doubt about it, this is one of our favourite CL's. More power to your collective elbow, both of you, You are doing a great job and deserve to go from strength to strength.

Special

What a lovely CL this is. A great welcome by Roz and Nick with an offer of a hot drink, shortbread biscuits and 6 fresh eggs from their own hens. Site was nice and level with lovely views and the Elsan and water point easy to use and clean. The site was easy to find and lots to do in the area though our day in Glastonbury was blighted with torrential rain. The New Mill on the way to Taunton and next door to Aldi does really tasty meals and we also went to the Merry Monk which was good. Roz and Nick came to our rescue when we were due to go home on the Monday. With blustery winds and driving rain it was not a day for towing but the site was fully booked. However, Nick said if we could move over to the orchard we could stay another night so he fixed up the electric in the hen house and we stayed safe. Thank you once again Nick and Roz for being so accommodating and saving 2 old people the trauma of going home in such bad weather. We can highly recommend this beautiful site with such lovely owners and we will definitely stay here again if we come back to this area. Thank you again x

Glorious CL

Have just spent a superb eight days at Southfield, hosts Ros & Nick could not have been more accommodating. From the moment of arriving to our departure they were fantastic hosts. Most comments have already been mentioned, just to say an easy site to access from the main road, no narrow roads to worry about, level pitches and good views. Yes there is a little road noise and by the time you hear the train it has been & gone. I just hope when we next book there will be room for us. Great site great people, thanks Ros & Nick
