Why stay here ...

Our CL is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, in an elevated position with truly breath-taking and far-reaching panoramic views across a spectacular rural landscape as far as the Quantocks and Blackdown Hills. This really is an ideal site for those looking for a peaceful and secluded break in an idyllic countryside setting. The site itself is on a large field with electric hook-up and space for awnings. A shower and toilet are available day and night. Adults, children and pets are all welcome. Please note that there are no extra person charges for children under 12 years old. 

The site is in a tranquil and rural location on a small working farm with sheep, goats, chicken, ducks, guinea fowl and pheasants (horses during the winter months) and is ideally located for touring the many places of interest in this area including Taunton, Glastonbury and Wells. There are beautiful walks available on the Quantocks and Blackdown Hills. Good access is enjoyed to the Jurassic Coast, (including Charmouth, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis), the north coast (including Minehead, Lynton and Lynmouth), and Exmoor National Park. More locally are the RSPB centre (c.2.5 miles), The Wetlands centre (c.4 miles), a canal boat ride (c.3 miles). The County Town of Taunton (c.7 miles) offers a museum, two theatres, swimming pool, bowling, a large cinema complex, a racecourse, Somerset County Cricket ground and many excellent restaurants.

There are a variety of National Trust properties in the area, including Barrington Court, Dunster Castle, Knightshayes Court, Montacute House and Hestercombe Gardens. Glastonbury Abbey and Tor, Wells Cathedral, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge would make other excellent day trips. For those with children, Cricket St Thomas Wildlife Park (c.14 miles), The Fun Farm (c.8 miles), Axe Valley Wildlife Park (c.20 miles) and Tropiquaria Animal and Adventure Park (c.18 miles) are well worth a visit.

For other great ideas, please see Day Out With Kids - Taunton. There is a choice of pubs serving food and a local shop within a mile of the site. The Bell Inn in our local village offers good pub food, with a selection of vegetarian options. An excellent pub restaurant (The Bird in Hand) is within a 3 mile drive.

Beautifull views and peacefull location - April 2018

After a short drive along a small country road we arrived at Crimson Hill Farm site, access into the farm wasn't an issue. After turning into the site field we were greeted with stunning views towards the Quantocks and beyond. We were the only ones on the site at the time over the period of our five night stay, a couple of other vans visited but only over night; having plenty of space between pitches made the stay a very quiet and pleasant one. Two local Pubs, one walking distance (The Bell) with a local country shop next door, makes for a nice walk taking approximately 40 minutes at a stroll. We visited the other on the way back from a day out and had a meal, very nice and reasonably priced food. Close to National Trust locations and 30 miles from Mine head ideally situated for days out. Toilet and shower always clean and tidy which is attached and part of the house. As you visit, you walk by both the sheep, lambs and horses in the paddock which is lovely especially first thing in the morning, also Rufus, Kevin's little dog comes out to greet you 'good morning'. A really lovely stay Kevin and his wife really friendly and helpful, we will visit again.

Heaven!

This site is to us heaven. We stayed for a week in April and Kevin had warned us that the field was flooded, although we could use a hard standing. In a way this a CL is the opposite of some Club Sites we've stayed on. This is an organic, family farm with all that entails. In this vain Kevin gave us a lovely friendly welcome, whilst trying to cope with five orphaned lambs that were waiting to be bottle fed by him! Others have mentioned the view, which is truly amazing. Our favourite pub was The Far Canal which can be reached by a path, which was slippery and steep in places - as we were there after loads of rain. However with care it can be managed. On the way can be seen the remains of a disused canal and the entrance to a tunnel built in the 19th Century. It goes for about a mile under the farm. We also went to The Bell which was good traditional pub. However The Far Canal is different to the norm. The Landlord Simon is a larger that life character who sometimes also cooks a wide variety of food. They boast over 70 varieties of gin(?), local ale and fresh fish. Finally big thank you to Simon and Alison for a superb holiday

Peaceful Getaway

We have just spent three nights at this lovely CL where we were welcomed by the very friendly owners. It is a perfect location for a peaceful getaway and great for exploring the local area. Lovely dog walks directly from the site. Curry Mallet is a very pretty village off the beaten track with a very welcoming pub called The Bell which served good food and was dog friendly. The pub is a pleasant mile walk from the farm. Would definitely recommend and we would like to return at some point in the future.

Lovely stay

We stayed for a long weekend earlier this month and only wish we could have stayed longer. Lovely quiet site with marvelous views. Owners very friendly and helpful. We haven't used CLS for several years and had forgotten how peaceful and good value they are. We'll visit again when we can.
