The campsite is situated at the foot of The Knoll, making it a perfect spot for lovely country walks, and as we love dogs ourselves the site is dog-friendly. The delightful Ralph’s Wood is just a 5 minute walk away, and just like our campsite also welcomes dogs.

Our campsite is found within the village of East Brent, a charming village that every August hosts the famous Harvest Home festival, and happens to be the home of the very first one of these in Somerset.

Just spent two very relaxing days here. As others have said, very friendly people, so too is molly the dog. Large mown field easy access to CDP and water taps and a spotless toilet. Just how a CL should be.

Perfect stopover

Dene Hollow
A fabulous site, nicely located for an overnight stop on M5, or for a longer stay to vist nearby places of interest. Convenient for a quiet stroll up the Knoll, or to the excellent local pub. A lovely spacious level field, pristine toilet shed, good disposal facilities a friendly welcome all for a very fair price. Highly recommended.

Quiet and peaceful. Can't fault it.

Dene Hollow
We've coming to this site for over 35 years. With 3 generations of our family. Never once had any issues at all. Grass has always been adequately cut. Basic yes, but suits us. What would anyone expect for the price. A friendly family run site. No complaints from us or our family. Well done molly quite a achievement running a cl site for so many years. Long may you continue.

Simply heaven - like CLs used to be

Dene Hollow
A lovely large well-mown field, peace and quiet and lovely views of the neighbouring church spire - with the added bonus of a spotlessly clean toilet. This is how I remember CLs when I was little, when you didn't need to book, you'd just turn up and pitch up in the farmer's field - but usually then there was no toilet! We met and stayed here with 4 outfits as a family to celebrate my sister's birthday. The owners couldn't have been more helpful. As the festivities needed to be kept outside they lent us gazebos in case the weather turned (but luckily we had wall to wall sunshine) We took a walk to neighbouring Lympsham where there was a fete and classic car show. There is also a lovely walk to Brent Knoll. Although there is no hook up (what do you expect for £5/night?!) the owners offered to run an extension cable from the house if we needed it (but we didn't - we just went back to the simple life of running everything of gas and battery - it certainly made packing a lot easier!) It was the perfect place to reunite our family for this special occasion. Thanks Dene Hollow! PS You can safely ignore the previous poor review. The elderly owner had fallen and was unable to mow the field at the time of the other review. Her family now live on site and help run the CL - and very well too! Perfect if you want to get back to some traditional caravanning.

Knee high grass , 3 pin domestic socket on a lead fir power .

Dene Hollow
We arrived at site to be greeted by some very angry geese. We asked before going if site had electricity. We were told yes . It was a household exstension socket trailing along a fence . The ground is lumpy and slopes also biggie . The grass was up to my calf and as there were horses in field adjoining we thought they were making hay . We turned around and left . 3 miles down the road to hard standing electric dogs off leads . Lovely . You don’t have to put up with a shabby dump like this there are so many owners who take a pride in their sites .
