"We have visited this campsite for the past two years…"
We have visited this campsite for the past two years now and it's become a favourite - we use it as a stop over on the journey from London down to Devon/Cornwall - although we're planning on a longer stay next year. The site is surrounded by glorious woodland with lots of great woodland walks directly from the site. There are lots of activities for the children to do - the fabulous adventure playground, as well as football pitch, crazy golf and bmx track. We didn't try out any of the organised activities but would def give it a try next time. The site is perfectly managable for older kids to wonder around on their own and really benefit from the freedom camping can offer - I find some sites are just too big to be comfortable for the kids to just wonder off alone. The pool is a real hit as is the 'clubhouse' and evening karaoke/kids' disco was much enjoyed by our children. The facilities were perfectly clean with piping hot showers. We camped this year with electricty hook-up which meant we had our own water supply also. One word of warning - last year we camped in Field 9 (puddle patch?) which was right by the main road which was really noisy at night. Would def recommend avoiding that one. The site is perfectly placed for venturing off to Wookey Hole/Cheddar Gorge but tbh this year we had a perfectly relaxing time chilling out on the site.Read moreLess

We love this campsite so many reasons. Firstly ease of booking- the online system means it can be done in an instant.
The site features all manner of pitches, from open field non-ehu pitches (strawberry field) just for tents to large luxury pitches in Badgers Hole (yes I know, LOL). If you are in a group then the Paddock Pitches accomodate 2 pitches each and are ideal.
The majority of pitches are indiidually screened by hedges, those that are not (apart from strawberry field or paddock) are fenced separately. If you do have a big tent, ask for Badgers Hole for space.
The wash and toilet facillities are amongst the best I ever experienced on site, baby bath is available (this site was my choice with a 5 week old due to facillities), and disabled facillities use a radar key.
The site also has a laundry room, excellent shop, an aea for teenagers away from main camping area, and in the same mini complex they offer lunches, breakfasts and family entertainment (of the fun honest ytype- no motttled fur dressed 'characters' encountered yet LOL!), and a bar. This is seperated from the tents though so doesn't infringe on the peace at all. The site operates tihght security, a plus for families.
There are fish, domestic poultry,and donkeys dotted about, which the children adore.
On one side of the site is a small under 5 area, 'pixie patch'; however the main attraction of the site has to be the humungous adventure play area which features a fort, tower and many other rides- by far the best we have found.
An additional feature of the site is the bookable activity programme (eg archery) for teens etc, advertised on site notice boards.
If you do go june, make a walk to the srawberry stall just past the site entrance a priority!Read moreLess
