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.

What a wonderful CL

Crimson Hill Farm
We have visited the Somerset levels on a regular basis for a long time now as it’s not that far from home but wanted to try somewhere a bit different and so glad we did because this CL was such a treat. The views were to die for and being lucky with the weather (first weekend in October) we were able to just sit outside our caravan and soak up the glorious views and the perfect peace. Kevin couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful. We tried both the nearest pubs, eating at both, and thought they were both lovely and friendly with good food. However, I’d say the Hatch Inn was more of a restaurant type pub whereas the Bell Inn was a proper local that served good food. Each to their own and what you’re looking for but we had no complaints about either of them. We will definitely be returning soon.

Excellent site

Crimson Hill Farm
Yet another visit, our third, whilst out in our motorhome, excellent value for money with toilet and shower (free) even though we gave them a contribution for the shower. We have run a CL for 15 years with facilities and visited many, with far less facilities and far more expensive. Beautiful unobstructed views over Somerset. Quiet location, you can walk to as local PH. We will certainly visit this site again when in the area.

Stunning views

Crimson Hill Farm
Top of a ridge overlooking stunning views across the Somerset Hills. Rustic but adequate with two lovely horses and Billy goat in adjacent field that kept us entertained all for £12 a night with ehu. Excellent cider farm nearby Perrys, their vintage cider was superb

Autumn 2020

Crimson Hill Farm
Access to this site is via a rather narrow lane for the last 2/3 ml. There's also a gradient to start with, several passing places and one significant bend, all quite tight to negotiate as it's single track with passing places (maybe just big enough for passing a small car ?). When you get to the farm entrance (on the left) and enter the driveway you will see the CL field round to the right through an open gateway, all reasonable for width and turning space. Pitching is conditioned by the site electric box positions, though there is ample space for five pitches so that everyone gets the glorious evening sunset view. Grass length was acceptable during our Sep stay. Levelling blocks weren't really needed where we pitched, most pitches looked reasonably level. Water is from a standpipe near the entrance gate, along with waste dustbins and some recycling. Chemical disposal is in the farmyard on the right hand side of the farmhouse, with a flushing hose to hand. The loo and shower are on the opposite left side of the farmhouse side, and was clean enough on our stay, with hygiene protocols in place during our visit. theat the bottom of the pitching field. It is a peaceful and tranquil site with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Birdsong and random grazing livestock were the only perceptible noises, with maybe the odd vehicle passing in the lane behind the tall hedging screen. We really enjoyed eating in both local village pubs (The Bell in Curry Mallet and the hatch in Hatch Beauchamp) which are both just within walking distance if you are up for it. The bonus of fine dry weather most of the time made the stay very enjoyable. And the panoramic landscape views were memorable ! 0 replies

Lovely quiet sunny spot in the middle of lovely the Somerset countryside.

Crimson Hill Farm
What a lovely spot. Great CL near to Taunton and the M5. It was slightly soft under wheel when we arrived but it has dried out overnight. Lovely views. We are looking forward to a walk this morning to explore. We will be back.
