Why stay here ...

The CL is set in the grounds of our home, Higher Sea House. Pitches are at the far end of the property, quite level and overlook our potager, garden and orchard, whilst enjoying the open aspect of the countryside views. The thatched 17/18 century house is a Grade 11 listed, former farmhouse enjoying easy access off the road through a wide drive-way and courtyard to the CL. Pitches are suitable for both caravans and motorhomes. We recycle on site. Only green additives allowed in the Chemical Closet point please, as this goes into a septic tank. Gas BBQs are allowed. The site is surrounded by countryside, but only just over a mile from Ilminster and all its facilities.

This small market town, not only has its famous Minster and Arts Centre but also a range of independent specialist shops, pubs and restaurants with Perry’s Cider Mills close by. There is a Tesco and Co-op in the town. Fishing, golfing, walking and cycling can easily be accessed from Ilminster. Route 33 of the National Cycling Network, Sustrans, is just 0.5 miles from the CL. Additionally, this route is pleasant for dog walking or strolling into Donyatt and The George Inn. If you prefer to use public transport then Route 30 bus can take you to Axminster/Chard/Taunton.

Higher Sea House is an ideal location for a short or longer break, with easy access to all major routes. There are numerous places of interest to suit all tastes such as The Blackdown Hills, Neroche Forest, Barrington Court, Montacute House and of course the Jurassic Coast and Lyme Regis.

Myles and Myra look forward to welcoming you to our CL at Higher Sea House.

Lovely few days in Somerset

Lovely warm welcome from very helpful owners of this well maintained CAMC CL. Spacious pitches enjoying nice views over farmland. 1 mile walk along road, mostly with pavement, to Ilminster, where we had a lovely lunch & cappuccino at The Gallery Cafe. We chose this CL as it’s close to Southwest Motorhomes where we are taking our van for it’s habitation service. Would use again.

A bit different

Stayed here at the end of August breaking our journey from Plymouth back to London. A warm welcome from the host who introduced us into the orchard field. Plenty of peace and quiet to be had. Great site for visiting Montacute House and surrounding countryside. Thank you (belatedly).

Great location & friendly owners - a lovely CL

Stayed here for 7 nights, Ilminster and surrounding villages are lovely to explore. Myles and Myra are great hosts and the setting in their orchard garden with 5 free range chickens is a delight. An easy less than 30 minute tow from J25 on the M5 on a clear run. Also in easy reach of the nearby Devon and Dorset coast. Recommend nearby Perry's Cider (5 mins down the road) and for a day out book early for Donkey Walking Adventures at Beaminster, a truly unique and memorable experience.

A lovely CL.

This is a lovely CL. Myles and Myra are very welcoming and helpful. We stay here when we visit our daughter and family in Ilminster. We can either walk to Ilminster along the scenic old railway track or our daughter can collect us, a 5 minute drive for her. The CL is peaceful, very pretty, overlooking a splendid vegetable garden and the resident hens are our new best friends! We look forward to staying here again before too long, hope to see you soon Myles and Myra.

Friendly owners and nice location.

The CL is in a nice location, mostly flat, and easy to find, with very friendly and helpful owners. It is quiet (although there is some passing traffic in the day) and surrounded by fields. There are a few chickens about, who will try to share your meal, which my wife found a bit irritating, but overall they weren’t too much of a bother. One point to note is that owners request that you use green toilet chemical as they have a septic tank. There is a good walking track just up the road which we enjoyed, and I can recommend eating at The Five Dials at Horton, a few minutes drive away. My only grumble, and the reason for a few lost stars is pitches 4 and 5. We arrived fourth, and we put in a rather tight pitch surrounded by a garage one side, a small building site at the back, and a hedge on the third. It was just under 8 metres wide – fortunately we don't have an awning, which would have been impossible. There was plenty of space further round, but the owners response to request to move was “we don’t usually put caravans round there". So my advice is to get there early. Would we use the CL again? Definitely, the owners are friendly, the position is lovely, but I would request a specific pitch.
