A decent stay for the price but some issues

I have stayed on dozens and dozens of Farm sites and have had cows act as my Alarm Clock on many an occasion. I say this to temper what I have to say. Every morning during a 5 night stay we were woken before 6 am, not by cows, but by the owner moving pieces of farm machinery around his open metal barn that backs onto the CL. Not just for a few minutes but for over an hour every morning.(There was deathly silence from this area whenever we were on site after that time.) No chance of turning over after this. Now, I don't know if it just happened to be the "wrong" season from our point of view but I do know that I would avoid staying here at this time of year again. In addition we were treated to a Karaoke session from the Waggon and Horses pub on the Old Frome Road one Saturday night until midnight. It's about 400 yards away as the crow flies with nothing between us. Apparently it's a regular thing. The CL is a large round field enclosed by mature trees and hedges on three sides and the barn on the other. Plenty of room to fit 5 units on without crowding. Pitches are level in the main. There were quite a few flies around. More than we normally see on farm CLs. All grass pitches, which showed signs of previous members attempts to get off it after rain. We were fortunate insofar as it was dry for our stay. The EHU, Recycling bins, Elsan and fresh Water points are all found in the same area behind the barn. We had no problem with wifi or phone signal (EE). Access and directions were straight forward. You can access from the Old Frome Road if approaching from the north. Just turn right at the T junction, 2 miles down the road, and immediately right again. Farm on the right in 200 yards. We were able to shop in Shepton Mallet at Aldi and Tesco and there is a M&S at Frome. We also had access to many areas from this location. The Mendip Way footpath cuts across the bottom of the site. All in all a decent stay for £12 per night as no shower or toilet but I do wish the owner would give a bit more consideration to the CL users as we were not the only ones tying who found it off putting.
