not much to do

lovely well kept site , toilet and shower basic but perfectly acceptable , all clean. we couldn't find any public footpaths nearby , so no where to exercise the dogs off the lead , about a mile walk along a pathless busy road to the local village , small post office selling basics , 2 pubs but they don't open in the day . a nice site but not for us and our dogs .

Convenient and Peaceful

A lovely, level, well-tended site easily accessed from the M5.  We used it as a one-night stopover because of its closeness to the motorway.  We received a very friendly welcome from Mr & Mrs Petheram.  The price we paid was the minimum quoted in last year's Sites Directory.  A shower cost an extra 50p (payable by honesty box) and was well worth it.

lovely, peaceful site

Just spent a great week at this site. Lovely welcome from the owners who keep the site immaculate. No groundsheets allowed but not a problem. Nice, peaceful site and within easy reach of coast and countryside. Our first time in Somerset, loved it and will definitely return.

Good Location, Great Site, Easy Access

This site is near to the M5 junction but you cannot hear the traffic.   The last 1/4mile is a single track road with a dyke on one side and no passing places luckily its very quiet.  Once you arrive at the site which is a small field, you enter through a farm gate.   There are no access issues, I took my twin axle in and out without bother.    The site itself is well kept, grass mown regularly.  Waste water is dumped in the dykes surrounding the field.   The toilet empty point is under cover which is a nice touch.    There is a single toilet and separate shower which costs 50p via honesty box. Just about everything is recycled including food waste, and all bins are emptied daily.   The owner is really friendly and often has for sale home grown produce. There is a pub on the main road Fox and Hounds which is a 30minute walk away which serves good food and is dog friendly.   There is a petrol station next door to it as well.   The site is centrally located and there are loads of places to go to a short drive away.   You do really need your own transport though. Burnham on sea is a short drive away where there is a cinema and supermarkets.  If visiting the town park at morrisons pay and display.   The town itself does not allow dogs onto the beaches anywhere. If in the area, I would recommend visiting Brean Down, you can park on the beach (watch the tide times) for £3 all day,   its a huge beach and dogs can run freely.  There is a National Trust office/shop/cafe there as well. Western Supermare also has dog friendly beaches, the south car park is on the beach and the north carpark not far from it. Cheddar gorge, wells, bath are short drives away and exmoor is about an hours drive as well. Cheddar gorge allows dogs inside the caves and on the cliff top (jacobs ladder) walk.  I would do this in reverse though, the exit is just behind the lion tearooms up a lane.  If you do it in reverse you avoid the £5pp entry fee, and it is still clearly signposted.

Great little site

We stayed here for one night this week, having decided at the last minute to take advantage of the good weather. Good clean basic facilities, very friendly and helpful owner, and everything we were looking for. Will use again. Plus White Horse Inn in Mark well worth patronising.

lovely well kept quiet site

This is the second time we stayed on this site after originally staying for one night last year. We enjoyed it so much we decided to stay for 4 nights this year from august 7th. We visited cheddar gorge, wells and Weston super mare. The site is handy for coast and city. Lovely site, quiet, clean and right in the countryside with good pubs in mark village, we will be back again soon.

Beautifully kept site

This site is a real treasure, its nice and quiet, and beautifully kept. The level grassy field is more like a huge well mown lawn, and the facilities on site are also very good. The seaside town of Burnham on Sea is around a ten minute drive away, with its sandy beach and has a good mix of eateries, little shops and Supermarkets. The beautiful Cathedral City of Wells is around half an hours drive away, and if like us you get a chance to visit on the Farmers Market day, you will not be disappointed. We will certainly be visiting Rookery Farm again.
