Lovely rural campsite

We have stayed at Garslade Farm about 4 times over the past few years and we have enjoyed our stays every time. Michael and Bridget are really lovely hosts and make you feel so welcome. The site is a great location, easy access to Glastonbury, you can easily cycle into too. Wells is just up the road, Saturday market not to be missed. If you are heading to the campsite, easiest access is going past Isle of Avalon campsite, other access road a bit tight and easily missed. 2 showers and 2 toilets as well as outside pot sink and fresh water as well as waste sink. Facilities are basic, but none the less good considering lots of CL sites provide nothing. For £15 a night including hook up, it's amazing value. Not forgetting the site looks onto the Tor, what more could you want?

Easter at Garslade

Just spent a very wet and muddy Easter at the site. The weather was awful but we had a good time. This was due in no small part to the friendly, welcoming, helpful and humerous attitude of Bridget and Michael. Will definitely be returning but hoping for better weather.

Wonderful hosts

The location is peaceful, and the only noises are farmyard ones; sheep bleating and birds singing. The site is really spacious so that you can pitch as close or far away from others as you need to. The Tor can be seen from all places, and is just three miles away. The toilets and showers are what you'd expect on a working farm, but were made special by clean hand towels and hand soap. The joy of this stay was the hosting from Mike and Bridget. They kindly gave us a lift to the local pub, which is an amazing find for food and drinks. They waited for us to finish our meal, and brought us back to the site, as I'm not sure we would have navigated the short 20 minute walk in the dark. Mike was round every day to have a friendly chat and offer advice for day trips and excellent local information.

Ideal for visiting the Levels

Good level site. Great view of the Tor, ideally situated for exploring the levels. Facilities basic but fine.

Peace and quiet

Just back from a very enjoyable week at the farm. Beautiful surroundings and perfectly placed for all the local attractions. The view of the Tor is lovely and bird watching is great. The levels are perfect for cycling especially if like me, hills are challenging! The only negative is that the shower/toilet is very grubby and uncared for, with a little attention this CL would be perfect.

Great CL in lovely location

Quality CL in great location for Glastonbury, Wells and the surrounding area. Good variety of grass pitches all with views of Glastonbury Tor. Basic WC and shower provisions, but they work and were hot and free (which is more than can be said of some CL's I have stayed at). Good access but last mile or so is single track. We had 5 nights and walked to Glastonbury, biked to Wells, drove to Cheddar and the Mendips. We also spent some time at the local (about a mile away) great quirky pub, with some good cider, beers and some home made concoctions. Had our last meal there. Food was excellent too. Al in all this CL is highly recommended and one I would go back to again without hesitation.

Lovely stay

We just returned from a lovely and very relaxing stay at Garslade Farm.  The site is really well situated for visits to Wells and Glastonbury but being in the middle of the country is so quiet and peaceful.  Facilities are basic but perfectly adequate and Mike and Bridget were very friendly and welcoming.  The local area is flat and great for cycling and walking.  All the pitches have distant views of Glastonbury Tor.  We found it to be great value and we will definitely be back.

Farmer Mike's field.

We have stayed on this site for the past few years, usually for a month, maybe longer, and have always been made very welcome. Mike has become a friend, also Bridget, but she is away most days, so don't get to see her too often, but when we do, she is very amiable and friendly. It is such a relaxing place, you really feel that you have had a holiday when you leave. We are getting ready to book again this year, it is handy for us as my husband has family nearby, and they can come on site too, they sometimes stay in their trailer tent. Like others have said, the site is basic, but you have everything there you need, shower, toilet, dog walks etc, and the views are glorious. Glastonbury, Wells and Cheddar are not too far away, and there is Weston Super Mare and Burnham on sea as well. Plenty to go and look around. I am looking forward to our stay this Summer.

Disappointing

Unfortunately, we found directions to the site very unclear and ended up going along a road unsuitable for caravans to reach the site. When we arrived, the 'top' part of the site which housed 5 caravans was full and so we had to go into the 'overflow' (an adjoining field) which was on unmown grass about a foot long - not good for our 2 little dogs who were shorter than the grass! The weather was very wet which made the underground conditions even more unpleasant. Cows in the next field escaped a few times and we feared for our caravan being damaged. The owners suggested we might be better moving into the 'top' field (now with spaces) which could be gated more securely. As it was our last day we declined. We were very disappointed with the site for the reasons given above, however, it does have good views across to Glastonbury Tor and the surrounding countryside. The owners of the site were welcoming and friendly and stated that they had not cut the grass due to wet weather and that some caravanners dont like loose grass in the field after cutting. However, the top field was cut and we would have been happy in there had there been space for us - we had booked in advance. All in all, the site was quiet and basic (no problem for us as that's why we choose CL sites), well situated, but needs better directions on how to get there and attention to the field conditions in view of the excessively long grass and the escaping cows.
