Excellent site

Booked this site well in advance as thought it might be busy. Lovely site, toilets and showers a bit far for me to walk to as they’re by the pool but James said I could take my car up there. They are putting in showers and toilets down by the cl so that will make a huge difference. Very peaceful , pool is lovely, didn’t use the games room. Quite a late check in time but an absolute gem of a site.. Have already rebooked for a couple of months time.

Great site for access to the Strawberry line cycle way

We stay here predominantly because of its location to the Strawberry line cycle way. The site is spotless, lawns well kept. There is a slight slope downwards so you may need to fully extend your jockey wheel, there are extra blocks if needed. There is an on-site swimming pool, that is supposed to be heated, when we was there is was far to cold to swim in, but was still nice to sit round the pool. it is very quiet with woodland walk from the site one way, and for cycling, come out of the site, turn right, along the lane, cross the road, and then you are at the cycle way, you can then go left to Yatton, or right. The CL is tree-lined so not much of a view, but would be great if a little windy as you will be sheltered. Will defiantly stay here again.

Lovely quiet stop.

This is a very nice quiet place to stay. We were the only ones on site and out of season. Lots of lovely walks right on the door step. About a 15 minute walk to nearest pub.

Lovely site

What a lovely, peaceful site. Very spacious pitches. A great base to go explore Somerset. The strawberry line is just at the end of the lane and a fabulous bike route. We stayed 4 nights and will most definitely be returning.

Lovely Site and Excellent Base to Explore Somerset

I was staying here to visit my parents in the village whom I hadn't seen for nine months due to the pandemic. I borrowed by sister and brother in law's caravan and, apart from communication issues at the start, I can thoroughly recommend this CL. On trying to make my booking, initially through e-mail, no one replied to me. After trying several times, I managed to get through on the telephone. A week prior to my visit I e-mailed twice but didn't receive a reply. I couldn't leave a voicemail as the machine was full! I finally got a reply upon sending a third e-mail. This is the only issue I had with this CL and is the only reason I have rated it 4 our of 5. James told me to ring his mobile after setting up so that he could bring me the site information and make payment and, from that point onwards, I had a wonderful 3 night stay on this CL. The location is lovely and peaceful and only about a mile from the village of WInscombe. I recommend The Railway Inn at Sandford (owned by the Thatchers cider family) as well as a visit to their shop. Winscombe also has an abundance of shops. As long as you are patient at the start and keep persevering to make the initial booking, you really shouldn't be disappointed with this lovely site.
