Why stay here ...

Swallows View is set on the Somerset Levels and is a peaceful, adults only, cosy site that is enclosed by mature hedgerows teaming with bird life. There is ample space for 5 outfits, each pitch having their own water tap and electric hookup point (10amps). There is a hand sanitiser station located next to the chemical/grey waste, recycling and composting facilities.

We have now installed Terram grass protector semi hard standings to every pitch along with a run through the centre of the campsite to make it easier to arrive and leave the site.

There are 3 pubs within walking or cycling distance if you're feeling energetic, or a very short drive away. There is a very well stocked village shop which houses our local Post Office and also stocks Calor Gas.

With the beaches of Minehead, Burnham-On-Sea, Brean and Weston-Super-Mare to the West and the infamous town of Glastonbury and other famous locations such as City of Wells, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole to the East there is plenty to do, not forgetting Clark's Village for a little retail therapy, all within a 30 minute drive.

We are a few minutes drive (or nice flat bike ride) from all the nature reserves, Avalon Marshes, Ham Wall (RSPB, dogs welcome), Catcott Complex, Westhay Moor (dogs welcome) but to name a few, with the famous displays of Starling Murmurations in Autumn.

Karl, Liz & Keira look forward to welcoming you to our site.

Quiet Site, great location

Swallows View
We were given a warm welcome to the site by Karl with suggestions of local bike rides and places to eat. The site was level with grass over plastic grids. Even after 3 days of very heavy rain we had no problems with getting our 3.7T van off the site when it was time to go home. There was also a substantial hedge to protect us from the prevailing wind. Because of this I would recommend it as a site year round. Each pitch had it's own water supply and there were good recycling facilities. The site had an information board with a map of the local area. There were some lovely bike rides and walks from the site to nearby nature reserves. It is possible to do an almost flat bike ride into Glastonbury which is a nice town to visit and, for those feeling energetic, a walk up the Tor provides great views. The food at The Duck, about 1.5 miles down a quiet lane, is very nice with generous portions. The bacon sandwiches at the Avalon Marshes Visitor Center are also nice. Be sure to check opening times for the historic buildings as they aren't open all the time. For a quiet break surrounded by nature I couldn't recommend this site highly enough.

So Peaceful and Quiet

Swallows View
Just returned home from 2 weeks + on this wonderful CL. Karl Elizabeth and Kiera so friendly and helpful. The site is surrounded by mature trees with an abundance of visiting birds and squirrels, although we didn't get see the elusive Woodpecker we heard him often enough. Each morning we were visited by 4 Robins around our caravan. My favourite bird. The Cl is kept absolutely immaculate. Each pitch has EHU and it's own water supply. It is well situated for visiting many places..Street and the Clarkes Shopping Outlet, Glastonbury, Burnham on Sea, Brean, Cheddar Gorge and many more. We have 4 dogs so managed to walk miles around the area following the public bridal through the fields. We only managed to get Sunday Lunch at 2 pubs The King William Inn and The Crown Inn both at Calcott. Both were delicious and very dog friendly. We will definitely be visiting again *****

Excellent Site

Swallows View
We stayed on this site mid August. Access to the site can be a little tight in places but it is well worth it. The site itself is extremely well kept and maintained by the owner, with hook-ups and individual water points. The owner and his family live on site and are welcoming and very friendly and a mine of useful information. We went to The Duck which was a country mile’s walk from the site (if you go in the evening take a torch for the return journey) it served good beer and food. For shopping the nearby Co Op is very well stocked and worth a visit rather than the big supermarkets. Thoroughly enjoyed this site and will return.

'Paradise in August'

Swallows View
We booked this site to for 2 nights to break our journey from Cornwall and were not dissappointed. We received a friendly welcome and the site is well kept with recycling bins.Having a tap on each pitch makes life a little easier!! it is very peaceful ,(having spent the previous 2 weeks in a very busy area) the beaches are not too far away, Clarks shopping centre at Street for a bargain and ASDA & ALDI are at Bridgewater also If in need of caravan accessories Highbridge caravan centre has a good stock of items.

Top CL site

Swallows View
first visit to this site. So So good that we have booked a return visit in September. If you visit don't follow the sat nav. the village lane is quite narrow on the approach but the locals are very good at pulling in to let you pass .site is very peaceful apart from the odd car in the lane. each pitch has its own water tap so its like being on a service pitch without the extra cost. The owners, Karl ,Liz and there daughter Keira are the perfect host, they go out of there way to be helpful and friendly. Nothing seems to be to much trouble for them and they always wave and say hello when they see you even if Karl is out on his bike !!. site is level with nice access and quite central to places to visit. We haven't tried the local pubs yet but are looking forward to it next visit.
