The main thing that surprised us about Long Hazel Caravan Park in Sparkford, Somerset was why, for the majority of our week there, we were the only ones on site. It is an adult only site that is easily accessed from the A303 making it a good stop off for a break in a journey down to the South West or vice versa. However, the abundance of local attractions makes it worth staying for at least a few nights. We were met by Alan who explained where everything on site was and then, as we were the only ones due in, we selected our pitch. The facilities were in a good state of repair and always very clean whilst the overall site was well maintained and tidy. The gates are shut at night but we were given the code so we could open the main ones to get our car in but the pedestrian one isn’t locked. Even if we hadn’t been able to open the gate there was enough room in the approach road to park and walk back to our pitch. The owners live on the site which gives a feeling of security and they were regularly walking around. The pitches were spacious and although there were houses along one side there wasn’t a feeling of being overlooked or noise from them. There is a pub within walking distance which served good pub grub and had a friendly atmosphere. We were slightly concerned about the closeness of the A303 dual carriageway but the noise was not as intrusive as we had expected, probably due to the fencing that the owners had put up. The only slight frustrations were that the light in the gents’ shower seemed to be set to too short a period of time, it had a habit of switching off before I had finished. This was mentioned to Alan who confirmed he was aware of it and an electrician was due to visit to sort it out. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Long Hazel and would stay there again if in the area.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with. You will be pleased to hear that our electricians have been. The lights always stay on in the shower block except the main light which does turn off on a timer. Campers will never be left in the dark when the timer kicks in We look forward to meeting you again if you are in the area.
