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.

lovely site

Metcalfe House
we have just returned from four nights at Metcalfe House. The site was quiet, well organised and also flat. We were met by John on arrival who was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed listening to the local wildlife and watching them too. The nearby bus stop was useful and we used the bus to travel to Street and Glastonbury. Local pub was clean, food was good, landlord and lady were very welcoming and also dog friendly. Plenty of local footpaths with amazing views from the top of the hills. Thanks for having us, would not hesitate to visit you again. John and Sandra Bray

Handy and nice

Metcalfe House
Needed a break but not to far from home in Bournemouth and booked 6 nights. Had a warm welcome and shown to pitch with water and electrics. Grass cut well and improvements being made to end of site for direct access onto countryside paths. Great sunset views from far end and with the chickens and doves running about made it interesting and enjoyable stay. Friendly people on site and good re cycling and elsan unit facilities.

Wonderful site.

Metcalfe House
Booked this CL to get away in early July and meet up with family on the site. Met by Phil who was very welcoming and helpful. Really nice and friendly. I would definitely return to this site and would have liked to stay longer but the need to tour was great. Pitches with a water supply to each one. Gravelled approach and as it was fine weather there was no problem on the grass pitches. All in all a very pleasant stay.

An expensive one night!

Metcalfe House
Had to curtail our 3 night visit after one night at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances, but that didn't stop our advance deposit for one night being withheld. So, charged twice, £30, for one night with no shower or toilet facilities on site didn't leave me impressed I'm afraid. The location is lovely and very handy for Street and Glastonbury, The birds can be a bit noisy through the night if at the top end of the site. I won't be back to this site.
