OK but not 5 stars?

Chatterwood
Not quite sure how anyone who's been anywhere can give this site 5 stars. Don't get me wrong it's OK but NOTHING stands out. The owners seem very pleasant and accommodating just as most CL owners are. The hard standings with a grassed area at the sides is a nice touch but pitch 2 is very tight indeed AND you've got the pleasure of the recycling bins encroaching onto your pitch and the toilet dump adjacent. The views are nice but really only 7 out of 10 maximum, the site is quite small and hence you're pretty close to your neighbours. The grass cuttings are not picked up so be prepared for the inevitable fight with grass in your van. As has already been mentioned the road noise isn't particularly conducive to a 5 star rating either, it's the biggest downfall of the site frankly. At £20 I don't feel it represents particularly good value. for £3 more we stayed at Trewethett Farm with free hot showers loads of space, no road noise, great TV reception and truly truly amazing views.

lovely site, lovely owners

Chatterwood
Stayed at Chatterwood for a week in early June. The site has serviced hard standing pitches with grass adjacent for you to sit out on. Horse paddocks all around and a gated exit from the owners' garden which they use regularly to nip out and welcome new visitors and to pop round checking all is ok. Not intrusive, just a lovely level of care and interest in their campers' well being. Road noise from the main road is just noticeable, but it is across one of the horse paddocks so is not too intrusive. Crossing the main road takes you onto a bridle path and then a short walk into Bicknoller with a nice pub (Bicknoller Inn) that does good food and keeps a good pint. There is also the village store, which opens 0900 to 1300 at present. The road from the store leads up a lane and onto the bridleway up onto the Quantock Hills. Loads of walks and cycle routes across the hills and we managed a different circular walk on each of our 6 days stay. The walks along the valley are also very pretty and it is possible to catch a bus from near the site entrance into Watchett and then walk back to the site on public footpaths and minor roads. The site is well served by public transport, with buses every half an hour both ways (Taunton-Minehead). The site owners Jane and Tim also own a pub called the Farmers Arms in nearby Combe Florey (transport required as not in walking distance). This place is a gem and you should visit if you can! loads of heated outdoor (covid safe) seating under thatched canopies outside this beautiful thatched pub. Excellent beer, cider and wine. The food is top notch and includes home made 12 inch pizzas from their own wood fired oven, expertly crafted by Tim. My wife had a crayfish and sea bass linguine that was deemed "excellent". Not your typical pub fare as you can even share a chateaubriand if you are feeling hungry! we drove our 6 metre long Ducato motorhome there and Jane had even saved us a space in their car park. 10/10 for customer service. Bigger units may struggle as the pub is on a little lane over a small bridge. Well worth the 10 minute drive if you can make it. Would we come back? A resounding YES. Would also be nice out of season as walking the Quantocks in winter would be a treat too!

Lovely CL with beautiful views

Chatterwood
Stayed at this lovely CL for five nights. Each pitch is hardstanding with grey/fresh water and ehu. The site is at the base of the Quantocks and there are plenty of walking and cycling routes direct from the site. There is a shop and a pub in Bicknoller which were great. Jane and Tim made us very welcome and we look forward to returning.

Paddock camping

Chatterwood
if you love horses and steam railways you’ll really love this site! Surrounded by horses in paddocks on 3 sides - and the 4th side overlooks the West Somerset Railway line so you can watch (and listen) to the steam train from your van - or stand in the door and get a wave from the engine driver!! we just had 2 very wet nights there but it was thanks to the very wet sat afternoon that we stayed at the van and had the pleasure of watching 3 return train journeys - if we’d been out for the day we would have missed them! Bicknoller pub is perfect for a drink after a walk up onto the Quantocks, highlight was encountering a small group of deer on the top, but the views are outstanding. Bicknoller village shop is run by volunteers, only open in the morning at the moment (due to covid), it has all the basics and will be doing drinks when the weather is nicer. lots if sheep in the fields so didn’t find anywhere to let the dog off lead, but still lots of lovely walks both in the valley as well as on the top. the CL is down from the main road but we didn’t notice the noise from the road at all, 4g signal was fine but didn’t try TV. the farmers pub is recommended but not if you are in a motor home - limited parking plus a very narrow lane - we were not unscathed 😢

Charming Beauty

Chatterwood
We just spent 2 nights at this site. It had all the facilities needed to make our stay pleasurable with fully serviced pitches. The pitches are level, hardstanding with a grass area. It is a lovely part of the country with much to see and do nearby or within a reasonable drive. We enjoyed seeing the horses running in the adjoining fields. The Site owner was welcoming and happy to assist with any queries. We recommend this site if you are wishing to visit the Quantocks and Exmoor.
