Ideal for a visit to East Somerset Railway

Booked 2 nights here as we had a day booked at ESR. On arrival we called the owner and within a minute he arrived on his bike to welcome us, told us we could could pitch up anywhere we liked on the field, where the water and bins are etc. First thing we noticed was the amount of flies! They were everywhere, so much that we didn’t feel comfortable sitting outside our motorhome. Not only were they flying around, they left such a mess on our van. However, the site is fairly well kept, grass was cut ok, no loose cuttings. Bins and toilet waste area all kept tidy. We walked to east Somerset railway which took about 30 mins, but down a main road that was busy with huge lorries, had a great day out there, well worth a visit. Shepton mallet is about an hours walk, but we didn’t try it as the walk to esr was too stressful on the main roads! The site is peaceful, nothing woke us up in the night, even though they had cows and chickens nearby. If it wasn’t for the flies we would rate this site much higher, I guess that’s what you get for being on a dairy farm.

Comment from the Club:

Thank you for your review and we are glad you found the CL Site peaceful. The CL Owner has been in touch as he wanted to advise the CL Site is not affected by flies frequently and they do not have them in any greater number than you would expect at any farm site. Our CL Inspector has also visited the site a few times and reports he has not experienced flies on his visits so we are sorry that your stay was affected by this. With regards to walking to the East Somerset Railway, please note there are other walking routes which are not via the main road and the CL owner is more than happy to advise of the best way to access the railway.
