We have stayed on this site several times and its by far the best site we've ever stayed on. The wardens are friendly and helpful. There is a well stocked shop of not only caravan bits and bobs but also food. The site is beautiful and the pitches are the largest we have ever found. Not only that but the views too are beautiful and lots to do in the surounding area.: July in 2011
We have stayed at this site many times and it is one of our favourites. Every time we go the owners have made more improvements. The majority of pitches are now hard-standing and quite a few are full service with waste and water.
Pitches are a good size and separated by shrubs which gives a bit of privacy. The owners and wardens are very friendly and always around if required. An additional new toilet block is to be added during the winter which is good as the current one does get a bit crowded when the site is full.
Nice pubs around the area, details in Reception, we tried the Camelot Inn which was very good.
The surrounding area and the views from the site are excellent and peace and quiet are the norm. Lots to see and do in the area details of which can be found in the Tourist Information room on site.
Staff friendly and helpful. Facilities spotlessly clean. Gardens well maintained. Very peaceful site with no noise whatsoever. Excellent fishing pond. On site shop sells basics and also home made fresh cream cakes and fresh bread. You can also order your newspapers.
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning.

Many thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, it is very much appreciated. See you soon we hope.
The site is set deep in the Somerset countryside but close enough to many attractions. The entrance ensures you have booked the tranquil quiet site you wanted, the friendly welcome confirms this.
All pitches are flat and have plenty of room for caravan, awning, car and room to relax in.
The showers and toilets are spotless and cleaned regularly, the elsan point is equally well keep, with a hand cleanser on the tiled wall.
All pitches are individual with good planting seperating each pitch. There are good walks from the site, and the Old Oaks are adjacent to the site on a footpath.
Dogs are welcome and the dog run is safe, enclosed, with hand cleanser on the gate, there is even a dog shower.
The on site fishing is superb, a short walk from most pitches, and very reasonably priced.
This site is for adults only and if you want a quiet holiday this site is for you

Well here we are, back after a lovely restful week at the Old Oaks. We pitched at an all-serviced pitch on the circle. The plots are very roomy and every caravan had it's privacy.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful - know alot about the local areas. The shop is well stocked and there is a pc for internet use if required.
My husband's a keen fisherman and was really pleased with his efforts at the pool - it's well stocked with carp, tench, perch and roach.
The WC/Showers are kept spotlessly clean as are the grounds.
It's a site we'll be going back to.

My wife and I have recently returned from five days here-wish it had been longer. The site is beautiful with first class facilities. The pitches are large we have a twenty foot tent and a car and there was masses of space. The shop is well stocked with all the basics. There is a lovely little pond which can be fished for around £2.50 a day. It is great walking country beng .75 mile from the tour (beware the hills are killers). If you get the chance to visit don't delay its great.
Just returned from 5 days at this fantastic site. We have been to many sites over the years and this was by far the best in terms of pitches, cleanliness and peace & quiet! The only thing that could improve this site would be a pub a short walk away. Nearest pub 40 mins walk and a bit hairy walking back in the pitch dark - don't forget your torch!! Glastonbury has some great bars and live bands every Friday & Saturday. Highly recommended!
What a fantastic site. Owners lovely and friendly. Sites facilities NEVER experienced so clean before or since. Sally and Jim are lovely people and are always there for helpful advice and a friendly face.
A gorgeous location really peaceful. Fellow campers appreciate the location and respect the facilities.
All together a great site have had our custom for the past 4 years and will continue to do so for many years to come.
Dog walk available with a shower for the dirty dogs pitches are a great size and you never encroach on other campers.

By far one of the best parks we have stayed at in 30 years caravanning. Quiet location with glorious views. Friendly staff. Great not to hear screaming kids at daybreak ! Don't change anything - leave it exactly like it is and we'll be back

This adult’s-only site is located just outside Glastonbury. Festival aside, the town is steeped in history and folklore and well worth exploring. Find peace in the grounds of the ancient Glastonbury Abbey, once the richest abbey in England and said to house the tomb of King Arthur and Guinevere. Ornate Wells Cathedral is also close enough for a day trip. At Old Oaks park you will find panoramic views and access to walks over the rolling countryside. There is also a pool,
dog walk and fishing lake. The large pitches are placed around open grassy spaces so you never feel crowded. Hardstandings and electric hook-up are available. Numerous water points are conveniently placed throughout and the site has washroom, washing-up and laundry facilities. The on site shop has a good range of groceries and offers a freezer pack hire service.

Practical Motorhome Independent Site Reviews.
Old Oaks is one of those gems of a tourng park you find all too infrequently. It's a family-managed site exclusively for adults, run by Jim and Sally White, and is well signposted from roads leading into and out of the town of Glastonbury. The prominently signposted access drive, with passing bay, leads to a courtyard in front of the farmhouse, with a separate reception block, and well-stocked shop and off-licence. Service roads on site are hedged and fairly narrow, although adequate and well paved, so that long US RVs can be accepted.
The camping areas currently consist of 80 level pitches, of which 29 are fully serviced: of these, 17 are hardstanding and 12 are grass. Each camping area has a distinctive character, from the Walnut Paddock Circle with hardstandings for caravans and motorhomes, each with its own grassed area, to the adjacent Walnut Paddock Terrace with grassed pitches for trailer tents.
The Orchard has a mix of hardstandings with hook-ups and grass pitches for tents, around a central area of cider apple trees. Nearby, the Camping Paddock is used for tents and small motorhomes. The fully-tiled amenity block has an excellent layout and facilities and also has provision for disabled campers.
Dog behaviour on site is well monitored and controlled, and dogs must be kept on lead.
A new dog walk with a dog washing facility allows the third family member to be exercised off the lead.
A half-acre pond, less than 300 yards from most pitches, for guests' exclusive use, allows coarse fishing for carp, with some roach and tench. For this, a small permit fee is charged from April to September. A lane at the back of the site leads up to Glastonbury Tor, and bicycle hire is available.
The site is close to some of the county's main attractions, including Glastonbury Abbey, and Cheddar Gorge.
