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.
