Waterrow Touring Park is an adults only caravan park and camping site, situated near to the Somerset/Devon border and a short drive away from Exmoor National Park. Waterrow Touring Park is the perfect location for adult singles or couples who wish to experience camping in Somerset and explore the outstanding natural beauty that surrounds the whole area.
Waterrow allows you to rent a pitch for your own motorhome, and while there are a small number of tent pitches, demand is high and these tend to be snapped up quickly. All motorhome pitches have their own power supply, and television signal amplifiers. The relatively small size of the park makes it a welcoming and peaceful location for anyone looking to escape the pressures of life and enjoy a relaxing break in the Somerset countryside. Dogs are allowed into the park, and even have their own dedicated field for them to run around in and enjoy the holiday for themselves!
There are a selected number of activities available for those who are looking to stay occupied on site, including watercolour painting classes for those of an artistic ilk. If you want to be more active you have the option of bringing your bike along. Beware, however, that the terrain can be quite demanding, so you may need to invoke your inner Bradley Wiggins!
Outside of Waterrow Touring Park, there is a number of great places to visit. The North Somerset and East Devon coastlines are both reachable in under an hour, while there are outdoor swimming pools, fishing lakes, and a number of National Trust properties, including Arlington Court, are all in the nearby area. Oake Manor Golf Club can also be found only 15 minutes outside of Waterrow.
Alternatively, those looking to escape the countryside for an afternoon can be in Taunton Town Centre within half an hour, where there are a number of great shops, restaurants, and bars.

Oake Manor Golf Club is 15 minutes drive from the site.
Outdoor swimming pool at Wiveliscombe, sports centres with swimming pools at Tiverton, Wellington and Taunton.
If you love the sea we are equidistant between the North Somerset and East Devon coastlines, both approximately 50 minutes drive away.

We collected our new caravan today from Highbridge Caravans who kindly included with their starter pack a voucher towards staying at Waterrow Touring Park. We wanted to stay locally to try the new outfit before retuning home to Hampshire.
What a treat, the owners, Anne and Tony Taylor go out of their way to ensure that the Waterrow experience delivers all that is promised from the quite relaxed atmosphere (ensured by being adult only), attractive landscaped surroundings, to the wealth of local attractions should you get tired of chilling out. Unfortunately we had only planned on a short trip but we are already looking forward to a return visit.
After purchasing our first ever motorhome, my wife and I wanted to find a site that ticked all our boxes to lose our 'Motorhoming Virginity', also one that provided a great enviroment for our dog, good walks, cleanliness and above all a haven away from our 4 needy teenagers.
Waterrow park ticked all our boxes without effort.
Situated in a deep valley with the River Tone running alongside and rolling countryside all around,it is possibly one of the most relaxing places I have ever laid my head, and as a bonus fly fishing is available on site and get this, 200 Metres from the site is a fabulous pub built into the valleys rock face 'The Rock Inn'. Great food wine and beer with log fires 'bliss'. My Wife and I went in November and it was great so in the Spring and Summer it would be brilliant. Don't miss it. Go!
One major bonus point for us was that there was absolutely no mobile phone signal so we could not be bothered by work or family alike. So if you are a phone stressed mobile junkie. Get liberated! It felt sooo good!
Practical Caravan Top 100 Parks awards 2007.
This is an ideal site for adults wanting a peaceful, pretty base from which to explore the delights of Somerset. The adults-only policy means families will have to look elsewhere, but that will suit many.
The site’s owners, Tony and Anne Taylor, greet you like an old friend and it’s soon obvious how much pride and effort they put into this touring park. The facilities are kept beautifully clean, and the garden-like surroundings are immaculate.
Dog owners are welcome, and there’s even a field for dogs to run around in. The woodland river walk gives a fine taste of the scenery and will whet your appetite for a more challenging hike on nearby Exmoor. Once you’ve had your fill of walking and taking in the views, you can relax at the country pub just up the road.
Should you feel like learning a new skill during your stay, the site runs watercolour painting courses. If fishing is more your thing, that’s available on-site too.
If you plan on introducing friends to touring this season, Waterrow Park can help. It hires out touring vans for use on site
– an ideal way of introducing novices to the pleasures of caravanning before they move onto such things as towing.
It’s worth noting that this site is open all year. Regular visitors will find it fascinating to watch the landscape change through the changing seasons at this little gem of a touring park.

Practical Motorhome independent site reviews Nov 2006
Owned and managed by Tony and Anne Taylor, who greet you like an old friend, it is easy to see why their customers return year on year. From the moment you enter this beautifully kept, adults-only site, you are constantly delighted by what is set before you. It really is a surprise to find that Tony and Anne have only been operating this gem for the past six years.
The stunning Somerset scenery around the site is glorious and can be viewed from just about every one of the 48 pitches. Being open all year allows visitors the chance to watch the changing seasons, and devotees of winter touring will be pleased to find that all the park’s facilities also remain open all year.
The site runs popular ‘Learn how to…’ breaks between May and October, giving visitors the chance to sample courses in such diverse areas as fly fishing and beginners’ Spanish. Just think how impressed colleagues would be if you returned from a break in Somerset speaking a new language!
A purpose-built disabled unit deserves special mention. The superb shower and toilet facilities, accessed with your RADAR key, are exceptionally well-thought-out and maintained, as are the rest of the park’s facilities.
Taunton and the surrounding area lie a short drive away, and a half-hour’s drive gives you access to the Exmoor National Park at Dulverton. Dunster Castle and Hestercombe Gardens are also pleasant diversions, each worthy of a day trip. 21 Sep 2006

Very quiet. NOT IMPRESSED WITH TENT PITCH UNDER TREES. THIS SITE HAS MADE THE TENT PITCHES AN AFTERTHOUGHT AS THEY ARE NOT IN THE SUN & UNDER TREES MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO DRY TENT ON LAST DAY ETC.
