Why stay here ...

Hill Farm is a countryside site with fantastic rural views across Somerset and as far as Exmoor. In fine weather sunsets are stunning followed by clear starry nights without light pollution (see photos).

This is a peaceful site which cannot be seen from the road and without passing traffic except for the farmers. Access is easy with no narrow lanes to negotiate.

The site is over an acre of mown grass (some say lawned) with a central stone access. There is plenty of room to spread out for BBQs and for games. There is a traditional orchard at the lower end and members can sample local varieties of fruit in the autumn.

Hill Farm is in South Somerset near both the A30 and A303 and within 5 miles of Devon and Dorset in either direction. It's equal distance (3 to 4 miles) from the market towns of Chard, Ilminster and Crewkerne. It is an excellent base to stop over for a night or two on route further South West or stay and see the riches the area has to offer.

Our CL is within a 30 minute drive of the Jurassic Coast and the picturesque resorts of Lyme Regis, West Bay, Beer, etc.

It's an ideal base to visit National Trust properties in South Somerset including Montacute, Barrington Court and Tintinhull. Also glorious privately owned gardens at Forde Abbey, Mapperton, etc.

There's plenty to do locally if the weather is not so good like the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Haynes International Motor Museum, Perrys Cider. Discover the local market towns which have many small independent shops and have become a centre for antiques with the well-known Lawrence Auction House in Crewkerne.

For those who enjoy walking there are footpaths to the nearby villages and cyclists can join the Sustrans route 30 which can take you through the lanes to Monacute and Barrington or onto the Somerset Levels.

Dogs are welcome with prior agreement. Dog walking is available from the site.

Everything a CL should be

Hill Farm
We had a wonderful week in early July at Donald & Cynthia’s perfect CL. Variable weather didn’t spoil a thing & the site remained pristine despite some hefty rain showers. Other reviews have covered everything from the warm friendly welcome to the beauty of the peaceful area - it really does not disappoint. We welcomed the laminated map & were able to explore every footpath & quiet lane walk on it over the course of the week. Our little dog slept like a baby on the 7 hour journey home! If we are in the area again, we will happily return to Hill Farm, an outstanding little haven within easy reach of Exmoor & the Jurassic Coast. Grateful thanks.

Wonderful site

Hill Farm
This was our first visit to this site and it won’t be the last. Donald & Cynthia are lovely, very welcoming and keep the site in tip top condition and the access to the site is a very easy drive from the main road. There is a recycling box and a bin at each pitch and the water tap is easily accessible. The waste water area is very clean and tidy. The site is lovely, with well cut grass and fabulous views across the fields as far as the Blackdown Hills and Exmoor. Thank you.

Amazing as ever

Hill Farm
Love this site, we’ve been coming at least once per year for the last ten years. Friendly owners, great views, large site. You can wander down and meet the calves in the barns, or chat with the sheep in the fields. Highly recommended.

Recent Stay in the Hot Weather

Hill Farm
The owners Donald & Cynthia are very welcoming and helpful they couldn't do enough for us during the very hot spell this month (July) checked on us every day and offered us to sit in one of there barns to avoid the heat. Site is very clean and well kept the views across the Valley are outstanding along with the sunsets. Will certainly stay again when next passing this way.We had a very nice meal at The Docks at Dinnington 5 minutes away by car

Donald and Cynthia are very welcoming and happy to advise and offer help on local venues hospitality walks etc. Fantastic views and beautiful sunsets. Great selection of footpaths and many circular walks. It's a working farm with cows and sheep and Bobby the sheep dog is beautiful and very friendly. The New Inn at Dawlish Wake does good pub grub and well worth a visit after venturing into the Perry Cider works although the cafe that is advertised on Perry's Web site is no longer open. The facilties on site are clean and tidy and each pitch has its own recycling bin. Cynthia attended to these facilities regularly to sanitise. Can't recommend this site highly enough and we'll certainly be paying them another visit at somepoint.
