The 5-star, adults-only Old Oaks Touring Park is an ideal destination for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in Somerset. Situated close by to the historic and mystical town of Glastonbury, it’s a great destination if you’re looking to get away from it all.

A range of pitches with hardstanding and grass areas suitable for touring guests are available, with options to fit all needs and budgets. Choose from a standard pitch, super pitch, premier pitch, and superior pitch – features (dependent on pitch) include electrical and water hook-ups, waste water disposal, satellite TV connections, chiminea, fire pits, picnic benches, bird tables, and patios.

Two superbly clean facility blocks are available for guest use, featuring individual private washrooms and accessible amenities, as well as dishwashing and laundry areas, ironing facilities, microwaves, and ice-pack freezers.

If the style and comfort of glamping accommodation is more your speed, you’ll be spoilt for choice on your holiday in Somerset – the site also offers glamping cabins, shepherd huts, and miniature cedar lodges. If you want the added luxury of a hot tub, this option is available with one of the shepherd huts and one of the lodges.

Fantastic on-site facilities to make your holiday in Somerset really special include a well-stocked half-acre coarse fishing lake, a tourist information room which also includes a pool table, 42” TV and book exchange, and a caravan storage facility. Fire pit hire is available and for the ultimate in convenience there’s also an on-site shop and off-licence providing all your daily essentials and delicious local produce, as well as takeaway food, a breakfast club, and food hampers.

The site is pet-friendly and includes a secure dog exercise area, a dog shower area with hot water, and even a dedicated washer/dryer for dog bedding. Dog treats and other items are available from on-site outlets and there are plenty of ‘dog stops’ where your pet can be temporarily left.

From M5 J23 (approx 15 miles): Take A39 towards Glastonbury. When you reach Street (approx 12 miles), turn your sat nav off! If you don't you are likely to be directed through a housing estate with lots of speed humps. As you approach Glastonbury with Avalon Plastics on your left, take 2nd exit off B&Q roundabout. Straight over 2 more roundabouts. At 3rd roundabout (Tin Bridge), take 2nd exit onto Wells Rd. Turn left to West Mendip Hospital (Old Wells Rd). Just past hospital, take left signposted Brindham / Wick. We are 1.5 miles on right.

From Wells (approx 6 miles) / Bristol (approx 27 miles): Take A39 towards Glastonbury. Heading into Glastonbury (approx 1/2 mile past Camelot Inn), follow signs for West Mendip Hospital. Just past hospital turn left at sign for Wick and Brindham. The park is on right in 1.5 miles.

Pitch here for your holiday in Somerset and Glastonbury with its well known Abbey and Tor is on your doorstep, while Street and Shepton Mallet are easy to reach, being less than 10 miles away, and Yeovil and Frome are both only about a 30-minute drive from the site. About quarter of an hour away you can discover Wells with is striking cathedral and nearby are the famous Wookey Hole and Cheddar Caves.

You could explore the Mendip Hills, which has been officially recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty, have a day trip to Bristol or Bath, both of which are only about an hour's drive away, or travel west towards the coast. Shapwick Heath National Nature Reserve is also very near The Old Oaks Touring Park and is a super place to see and learn more about the natural world – you might even spot an otter. Salisbury is a little further afield but at under 90 minutes away by car is perfectly doable for a day out. Head to the campsite's tourist information area for more details.

Extensive footpaths and cycle paths surround the park.

Beautiful adults only campsite nice and peaceful with fabulous facilities, nice shop with plenty of local and homemade produce also really good if you are a dog owner. Great views from pitches as the site is on fairly high ground by Glastonbury tor. Lovely area to visit we will be returning again this year

Cleanliness, facilities, friendliness, space, peace & quiet - all excellent.
I have never been to a site that was exactly as it portrayed itself and more. The photographs in the brochure and on the website are a true representation of what the site is like – none of this ‘take a picture with just a few ‘vans when we normally cram them in’ mentality. What you see really is what you get!
It’s the little things that impressed us the most: from hand wash by the dog bins and chemical disposal point, the encouragement to recycle as much as possible, to the most wonderful new facilities block. I have experienced disabled facilities before where the provision of a rickety old stool that I wouldn’t trust to handle my wash bag is the sum provision that designates a disabled shower stall. The new facilities are fantastic! There is more than enough room to swing a cat, whilst still in your wheelchair and a shower seat that felt comfortable, substantial and secure.
The wardens were always helpful and it felt like nothing was ever too much trouble. You could guarantee a smiling face at reception or out around the site, no matter what time of day
The only thing I would say is don't expect to lose any weight because of all the walking available direct from the site.. the calories burned are quickly replaced (and a little bit more) by sampling the divine homemade cakes that are available every day! The shop, although small, has just about all the essentials you would need having forgotten that one last ingredient and they don't charge the earth just for the convenience. You have got to sample the home bred meats - I can highly recommend the rump steak for a BBQ.. it was just melt in the mouth. They also offer a 'bread run' where you tell them the day before what loaf you want and they fetch it freshly baked in the morning from Burns the Bread, the local bakery. We didn't avail ourselves of the minibus service, but that runs regularly and looked reasonably priced
I think what we liked the most about this site is that it's adults only - when one of you works in a school, any holiday is like a busman's holiday if the site is full of 'feral children'. This site is full of calm, respectful people, some friendlier than others, but you get that on any site, they just need to understand that it is OK to say good morning to a total stranger!!
In all our years of holidays, both camping and more recently caravanning, we have never booked next year's holiday before we left because we liked the feel of the site so much.. but that's what we've done this year, so we're now on a countdown to our return!
We cannot recommend The Old Oaks enough!

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.

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.

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.

The Old Oaks Touring Park, Glastonbury, Somerset.
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.

The Past

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
