Why stay here ...

Metcalfe House offers a small and friendly certificated location for caravans and motorhomes. Situated in a rural position, near Somerton in the picturesque village of Cimpton Dundon with a pub, post office and an abundance of walks and cycle rides available in the immediate area.

The quiet, level site provides electric hook up and drinking water at each pitch. The gate to the rear of the site gives direct access to the surrounding public footpaths including the Dundon Beacon Nature Reserve and Coombe Hill Wood.

The Somerset Levels with nature reserves at Westhay and Shapwick Heath are essential for birdwatchers. Glastonbury Tor & Abbey, Wells Cathedral and a choice of National Trust Properties, including Montacute House and Stourhead (which has world recognition) are all on our doorstep. Many picturesque and historical Somerset villages are only a few miles away eg- Wedmore, Sherborne and Shaftesbury - home of the classic 'Hovis' advert or a little further to Cerne Abbas and Milton Abbas.

Our superb location is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions that Somerset has to offer. For nature lovers there are the Mendip Hills and Polden Hills. For families, the coastal beaches of Weston Super Mare, Burnham on Sea, nearby Fleet Air Arm Museum, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole as well as Clarke's Designer Outlet village in Street.

 A visit to Somerset wouldn't be complete without a trip to Thatchers Cider with its restaurant and shop, or the mure rustic experience of Wilkins Cider Farm just down the road.

Taunton, Bath and Bristol are all under an hour and provide the perfect choice for day trips.

There is also the wonderful Viaduct Fishery specialising in coarse fishing with a beautiful peaceful vista in which to relax in the heart of the Cary Valley.

All you need is simply on our doorstep.

A peaceful site

Ideally located immediately off the main road but site is set back far enough to be of no bother. Fresh water available to each plot with EHU and night light. Location excellent, if you enjoy shopping, sightseeing or walks there's plenty of each to keep you busy. But if you prefer to do very little then the site is a perfect haven. The pitches are very spacious and well maintained. Mr Jones and family are the perfect hosts, very welcoming, friendly and nothing is to much trouble, Mr Jones is always at hand keeping the site in good condition and is a wealth of information. My wife and I are looking forward to a time when we can visit again.

A great CL

Just back from a tour of Gloucestershire, Devon and Somerset and had to write a review of this CL Site – Metcalfe House at Compton Dundon in Somerset. What a lovely CL If I was to describe a chocolate box village sprinkled with thatched properties and a lovely pub within walking distance people would think I was dreaming. This CL is in such a village. A lovely location not far from the M5 and within easy reach of Glastonbury and Yeovil. John the owner is constantly looking to perfect this CL and we loved our short stay there. Easy access, secure, spacious pitches each with their own water supply and electricity point. Bus stop in the village to Street, Glastonbury and Yeovil. We had a lovely meal on the Sunday in the local pub the Castlebrook Inn. We will definitely be back. Dave and Joan McCaddon

Lovely location

This CL is in a great location for visiting this area of Somerset with all the varied places to visit. We were on a trial trip after the recent lockdown and had only booked for one night so we were pleased to find a lovely walk right on the doorstep of the site, not too far or too strenuous, to a trig point and viewpoint with far reaching 360° views. The walk took in the churchyard of St Andrews with it’s beautiful 1700 year old yew tree. The arrival at the site was very easy and we were shown to our pitch with it’s own water tap and electricity point. The pitches are well spaced out and the surroundings rural. Nice and level. A perfect CL.
