Why stay here ...
Our CL is located in the beautiful Somerset countryside with a magnificent view looking out to King Alfred's Tower. We are a working sheep farm so there are usually sheep grazing in the fields surrounding the site.
King Alfred's Tower, part of the Stourhead Estate, is a 160ft high folly which, if you're feeling up to it, you can climb the 205 steps to the top where the views across Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire are magnificent. It is open March to October.
There are lots of lovely footpath and woodland walks nearby and our village pub, The Old Red Lion, is only a mile away where you can enjoy a delicious meal whilst admiring the stunning view across the Brue Valley.
We are situated 4 miles from the interesting small town of Bruton where amongst other things you can visit (free of charge) the renowned Hauser & Wirth Somerset gallery. We are only 5 miles from the exquisite National Trust property Stourhead Gardens and House – definitely worth a visit.
There are many other lovely places to explore, including Frome with its quirky shops. On the first Sunday of each month from March to December 'The Frome Independent' comes to town. This is a mini festival taking over the whole town, bringing together the best local food and drink, artists, retro, vintage, collectables etc. plus street entertainment.
Historic Bath is only 23 miles away and boasts its superb Abbey and Roman Baths, along with excellent shops.
Other places well worth a visit include Wells with its wonderful Cathedral and Bishop's Palace garden (15 miles); also Glastonbury with its legendary Abbey Ruins (18 miles). Why not climb the iconic landmark Glastonbury Tor while you are there?!
Then there is Cheddar with its spectacular Gorge and caves (27 miles) and Longleat in Wiltshire (12 miles) with its famous Safari Park where you can drive close to wildlife such as lions, tigers, giraffes, elephants etc.
There are various historic National Trust properties not too far away, including Lytes Cary Manor, Montacute House, Barrington Court and Dyrham Park.
Other local attractions are Wincanton Racecourse, Orchardleigh Golf course (near Frome), Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford and the outlet shopping destination Clarks Village in Street.
Our peaceful site provides you with the perfect base for an excellent holiday exploring our amazing county of Somerset and enjoy all that it has to offer.
