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.

Great views and very quiet

Longfield Farm
This is a truly remote location with stunning views. Booked for one night, was the only van there and took a while to find a level spot so would definitely recommend bringing levelling ramps. Limited facilities, but lovely owners and their dog called Doug, best night's sleep in ages thanks to how quiet it was. Recommended if you want to get away from it all!

Lovely CL with friendly owners

Longfield Farm
Stayed at end of May after a very heavy rainfall. Owners were very helpful, especially when I got stuck, (my fault). Walked to King Alfred's Tower through owner's fields and had an enjoyable day even though it was raining. Close to Haynes Motor Museum and Stourhead House. Great views from site. Very relaxing with sheep and lambs in neighbouring fields. This was our second visit and will return.

Peaceful, Country CL

Longfield Farm
We spent an enjoyable time on this friendly site. We love to go back to basics and we did in this green farming area where we could watch the sheep and lambs. And we were, as others have said, a short trip to large woods which were great for walks to keep the dog cool on the lovely sunny days we were lucky enough to have. We also walked from site to Alfred's Tower. We will without doubt return.

Good location

Longfield Farm
We only stayed for one night as had booked tickets for Stourhead the following day. Good views of Alfred's Tower from site which you can walk to from site through owners fields. Parked on hardstanding which is nearer the road so some traffic noise, you would not hear this if parked in field. Great location for Stourhead, only 4 miles away. Had lovely walk in local wooded area, less than 10 minute drive away. Would recommend this site for visiting Stourhead and if you fancy walking to Alfred's Tower and if you like country walks. Would stay again if in the area.
