Why stay here ...

Meadow Cottage CL is a peaceful level field situated near the Somerset/Dorset border, just 1 mile from the A303, equidistant to Sherborne to the south and Castle Cary to the north.

It is a very good base for a touring holiday in the south-west, or as a stop-over on your way from London to the west country or vice versa.

We are a 5 minute drive from Haynes Motor museum, 15 minutes from Yeovilton Air Museum. The Jurassic coast resorts of West Bay, Lyme Regis and Weymouth can all be reached in under an hour and Stonehenge is a 40 minute drive east.

Due to the CL entrance being on a narrow lane we can only accept single-axle caravans and small motorhomes (max 8 metres).

The small village of Weston Bampfylde has a licensed farm shop which is very happy to accommodate any order. They also serve good coffee and cream teas (open Tuesday-Saturday).

There is a pub with a 20 minute walk on footpaths in South Cadbury which serves good food every day and we have several other pubs in the area just a short drive away.

Our nearest large supermarkets are in Wincaton (Morrisons and Lidl) just off the A303, but the village of Queen Camel (2 miles west) has a Premier store which is open 8am-9pm every day.

There are three National Trust properties worth visiting in the area: Stourhead, Lytes Cary and Montacute.

On your approach to Meadow Cottage CL you will pass through Little Weston which has a farm that makes very good cider, which can be purchased direct from the farm (a pleasant half mile walk from our CL).

We are a working smallholding with pigs, geese and chickens and welcome well behaved dogs with some fantastic walks straight from our gate.

We don't have any hidden fees but we do ask that you only use breathable groundsheets.

The approach road to the CL is also Sustrans bicycle route 26. It is a country lane with passing places therefore we ask that you don't arrive before 12:30 on your arrival date and you leave before midday on your departure date making sure you don't have any difficulty accessing the CL.

If you have any questions about the CL or the local area, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Beautiful Location

Meadow Cottage CL
We only stayed for one night on the way to Cornwall but feel like we’ve missed out. A warm welcome with a printed guide to the area started things off. The site is absolutely beautiful with great views over the surrounding countryside. Electric hookup and excellent water and waste facilities make this an excellent CL. Just make sure you call ahead if your rig is on the large size as the official entrance is a bit tight. We’ll be back for a longer stay soon as there’s plenty to do and see in this area.

Ideal stop over

Meadow Cottage CL
set among quiet countryside this is a lovely little site, the grass is well cut and the ground practically level, yet only a few minutes from the A303 if you want to break a journey. A short walk takes you to a farm / tea shop. Nearest neighbours onsite are geese and alpacas Nearby Haynes motor museum and Fleet Air museum.

I will be back!

Meadow Cottage CL
I only stayed for one night as I am familiarising my puppy with camping. She is too young to take advantage of all the lovely walks available from this site, so I shall be returning when she is older. Julie was very welcoming and the leaflet showing the local OS map, was very helpful. A lovely clean, neat site with the added advantage of chickens, ducks, geese & alpacas. And the Gloucester Old Spot Apple! A peaceful stay in the beautiful Somerset countryside despite the unseasonable wind.

Friendly Peaceful site with surrounding views.

Meadow Cottage CL
Being 4 miles from home this became our first site after covid to try out our New campervan. What a gem it had everything we wanted lovely friendly couple running it, well equipped, beautiful views with sun rises and sun sets (photography opportunities) and lots of interesting walks with our dog. A bonus having a small holding of animals Alpacas, pigs geese and ducks which kept our dog and us amused. Local farm shops and pubs make it the perfect place to stay. Looking forward to going again very soon.

Fantastic site in beautiful countryside setting

Meadow Cottage CL
Beautiful flat field with fantastic views of the sunset in the evening. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Supply of maps and leaflets available detailing local area. Small farm shop a short walk away and local pub serving great food about 20 mins walk. Well worth a visit, very peaceful. Will definately come back.
