Fantastic site. Ideal for exploring the area

Southfield
What a fabulous site this is, quiet, peaceful, well maintained, level H/S pitches, EHU & water on the pitch and wonderful friendly owners Roz & Nick who are available to help out whenever needed. This is an ideal place to stay if you want to explore the area. There is Parsons Cider Production just a 2 minute walk from the site where you can pick up some very good and reasonably priced cider and the bus into Taunton Town Centre stops directly outside the site. We jumped the short journey on the bus into the Centre and visited the Museum of Somerset which is a 1 min walk from the bus stop and we highly recommend. Lots of things to see, it's free but donations gratefully accepted. The Cafe is also excellent and very reasonably priced. There is also a large Sainsbury's in the centre with a big car park. We will hopefully get to stay at Southfield again but will stay a few more days next time.

Well Kept Site

Southfield
Our third visit to this CL. Stayed here in our Motorhome for four nights in June this year in order to catch up with family and friends. Warm welcome from Nick with a welcome cup of coffee. The site is well kept, with grass mown and clippings picked up. There is some road noise, but as we live next to an ‘A’ road, it didn’t bother us. We believe the site is on a bus route but not sure how often the buses run. Close to lots of interesting places.

Great CL

Southfield
We stayed for one night at the end of June on our way back from Devon. This is a lovely well kept CL. Grass mowed and clippings removed. Spacious pitches, nice views. Some road noise, but we didn’t find it obtrusive. We were in a Motorhome so it was great to have a nice flat level pitch. We had a warm welcome from Nick. Ease of access is good, and plenty of places to visit in the locality. In fact, we liked it so much, we’ve booked to go back again.
