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.

Tranquil site with warm welcome.

Meadow Cottage CL
I cannot recommend this site enough. The owners offered us a warm welcome and gave a very detailed guide to the area. The site is only a mile from the A303, but you can barely hear it. The sights of the animals on site make a welcome diversion and I personally could watch all afternoon! True, you can use the site as a stop off to Cornwall, but Somerset has so much to offer in it's own right and this site offers a perfect refuge to access it all!

Brilliant site in great surroundings

Meadow Cottage CL
We stopped at this lovely CL for a night on our journey both to and from Sussex and Cornwall. Julie was very friendly and welcoming, explaining where everything was located and offering further help if needed. The Covid precautions were excellent with barcode scan points and anti-bacterial sprays available. Peter came to our rescue, loaning an electric hookup cable, when my long cable developed a fault. An excellent CL to which we hope to return on many future occasions. Thank you Julie and Peter.

An absolute gem.

Meadow Cottage CL
This is a gem of a site. We only used it for a stop over as it is so convenient for the A303. The grass is well kept. The views are great. Watching the geese, the alpacas and the pig in the adjoining field was so good. The welcome was excellent and the sheet giving all the local details made us wish we were staying longer. Perhaps we'll stay longer next year. Why go all the way to Cornwall when this site and its surroundings are so attractive?

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.
