Quantock Orchard Caravan Park is an award-winning five-star, family run holiday park in Somerset, found in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is close to the West Somerset Railway, which is always popular with tourists of all ages, as well as a vast range of other tourist attractions and popular towns in the area. The park is open throughout the year, and welcomes guests with motorhomes, touring caravans, and tents, while also offering static holiday caravans for hire and holiday caravans for sale.
The park is immaculate and the owners are proud to have won ‘The Best Campsite in West of England’ award.
All of the pitches at Quantock Orchard Caravan Park offer a 15amp electric hook up, while they’re also all well-spaced to offer a degree of privacy to all guests. Thoughtful landscaping and use of the natural surroundings mean all pitches offer a wonderful holiday ambience and feel like a real home from home. Pitches are level, while grass and hard standings are available depending on guests’ preference. A small number of the pitches are fully serviced with water taps and drainage hook ups, while large pitches are available for guests bringing bigger motorhomes to the park.
A heated facilities block provides a number of conveniences to guests, including toilets, showers, a laundrette, washing up facilities, and chemical waste disposal. There is also a television room with plenty of seating to go around, while a games room is great for children during the evenings or when the weather makes outdoor play impossible. Wi-Fi internet is also provided for guests to use during their stay should they bring their laptops and tablet devices.
An on-site shop is ideal for guests looking to steer clear of the larger towns during their stay at the park. Guests can pick up groceries as well as children’s games and toys, while Calor Gas can also be swapped over. The shop also contains an off-licence so guests can buy alcoholic beverages if they wish, while daily newspapers can be pre-ordered.
There is plenty for guests to enjoy on the site, including an outdoor heated swimming pool, which is open daily from May to September. Inflatables are available for anyone to use to ensure time in the pool is always fun! Adults often enjoy spending time in the on-site gym, which also houses a sauna, and steam room for those looking to end their workout in style.
Guests with plenty of energy looking to explore their surroundings can take advantage of bike hire on the site. Maps are provided by the park owners and are highlighted with local points of interest as well as great places to enjoy a pub lunch. The park also sells ordnance survey maps for guests looking to discover the Somerset countryside themselves.
Away from the immediate vicinity of the park, there is much to do and discover. Taunton, Bridgwater, and Minehead are all wonderful towns with a range of attractions, while a short drive to the west takes tourists to Exmoor National Park, where fishing, golf, horse riding, and many other activities can be enjoyed.
The South West Coastal Path begins at Minehead, and is a great route for anyone who enjoys walking holidays in Somerset. So if you love the coast, this could be the campsite for you, whether you're planning to walk and enjoy the views or spend time on the local beaches.

This was our second visit to Quantock Orchard though as the last one was more than 5 years ago we can hardly claim to be regulars!
Our prime purpose for choosing this site was its location for some walks we had planned in the area. Access is easy as it is just off a main road though the entrance itself felt tight but I think that was probably more perception than reality.
The reception/shop was closed when we arrived but a notice on the door advised us of our pitch number. The shop is small but seems to have the essentials though due to the time of year we were there the opening hours were not long.
Getting onto the pitches isn’t particularly difficult especially as they allow you to drive through the pitch but with a mover this was certainly very easy.
The facilities were always clean, if somewhat dated and there was a feeling that they could do with a revamp.
As it was early in the season when we visited we regularly saw someone doing maintenance such as painting or repairs ready for when it started to get busy.
There was no road noise so quiet nights for all though at times during the day you can hear the train whistle from the nearby steam railway.
As this was a second visit we clearly are prepared to come back to this site and if its location suits us again then we will be back.
