Why stay here ...

Our site is perfectly situated for visiting all the wildlife reserves (Avalon Marshes) on the Somerset Levels, with the beach only a short drive away and Clarks Village Outlet Shopping down the road.

Set on the Levels we are away from main roads and very quiet, with views of Glastonbury Tor and a village shop close by. We are ideally placed for cycling enthusiasts.

We have electric hook up and water, space for awnings and we welcome well behaved children and pets!

Campervan Visit September 2019

An exemplary CL or as one might say, small but perfectly formed! An extremely friendly welcome with helpful local information from the owners who kept a careful but not intrusive watch on the site. Well drained grass pitches which were reasonably level although we did use levellers. Several water taps around site and standard EHU points. Well stocked shop in village. Good cycling and walking in the area with many nature reserves. We hope to return for more birdwatching at a different time of year to this excellent peaceful site.

Total relaxation on this quiet and well presented site.

We couldn't have been happier with this site, the owners made us feel very welcome with a constant supply of fresh eggs from their chickens. The pitch sizes are generous and very well maintained with a tap and electricity to every pitch. Trips out were easy being so central to many wonderful places. We will definitely be returning and have no hesitation in recommending this site.

Well located. Well looked after

A small cl in a very quiet location. Quietness and darkness are its strong features. The field is enclosed on three sides by mature hedges and the entrance has the owners new build house at the other. Entry to the field is easy and after a torrential storm the water just drained away quickly. The field is level, well looked after with plenty of space between pitches and was close mown on our visit. There are ehu’s and water points at various locations. Pitch No 1 however is on a bit of a slope but it has the advantage of having electric and water. Waste water at the other pitches can be disposed of in the hedge. The owners, caravanners themselves, have worked hard over the years to maintain the cl to a good standard and have had 30+ five star reviews. However these were lost by the club under the re brand and website upgrade and apparently can’t be retrieved. This is such a sad occurrence when now the owners have to start building a picture of their cl all over again through more reviews. So I will give it 5 stars We stayed here for three nights, second week of June, on our way to Devon. It is a few miles off the M5 so may not be ideal for an overnight stop but it is certainly good for much longer. It is fairly central of all parts of Somerset. Locally, there is no pub in the village but there are two at either side in adjoining villages. The local shop has a bit of everything but is mainly a Coop mini market, quite impressive for an out of the way location. The village is on the edge of the Somerset Levels and in a short distance there is the Avalon Marshes Nature reserve with small visitor centre and coffee shop. Across the road is the large Shapwich Heath Reserve with lots of wildlife. The surrounding area is almost flat and good for those with bikes. There is an added advantage to come when the owner’s new house is complete and that is there will be two self catering rooms to hire. So no doubt that will be good for anyone who wishes to take relatives. All in all a cl we enjoyed very much and would have no hesitation in visiting again when in the area.

Cycling on the levels

The site was simple but had electricity and water on each pitch. The owners were friendly and gave us local information which was useful as we didn't know the area. We intended to cycle and Karl suggested we go into Glastonbury via the nature reserve which had a cycle track . We started by visiting Avalon marshes centre where we picked up some cycle route maps and found out some more about the area. We enjoyed our time at Swallow View and cycling in the Somerset Levels ( as relatively new cyclists it was great as it was level )!! We will return ! Eddie and Gerry
