I stayed at Spitgrove farm for 4 weeks during August 2013 whilst working in the area, Phiiip was kind enough to look after my small motor bike at weekends for me, which saved me lugging it back and forth to Cornwall. The site was very convenient as North Petherton was only about a half mile away, there was a small local shop and a Tesco Express, a fish and chip shop a keebab and piza place as well as a chinese and indian resturaunt takeaway. Although I was forbidden by the wife I did have chips twice and Chinese once. There are also 2 cashpoints in the village. Going the other way into the village of North Newton which was about a mile, there was a nice village pub called the Harvest Moon, and a short distance from this was the lovely Bridgewater to Taunton canal, I think one of the prettiest that I have been on, 8 miles to Taunton and 5 miles to Bridgewater the otherway. with a couple of visiter centers along the way to Taunton. I actually brought the missus here when I had a short break and we cycled right into the docks in the centre of Brdigewater. A great ride ! Also not that far away towards Othery is a hill with a church ruin on top called Barrow Mump like a small Glastonbury Tor, which is worth a visit on a clear day. The M5 is right close by but it never gave me a sleepless night an it is very easy to get on or off at j24 or J25.
