Top Class site - stayed here to visit the Glastonbury Carnival - facilities extremely clean. Staff very helpful and knowledgable of the area. Good pitch layout and several taps around the edge.
Food on site great value and quality. Area has lot to see & do, also not too far from coast.

We stayed as part of a group this weekend, we're a family of 4 with a dog. The site was small and friendly, dogs were welcomed as long as they were kept on a lead. The staff were very acommodating, chatty and eager to help. The facilities were fab, the shower/toilet block was always clean and the showers were hot. There was even a family room with a bath which was a realy plus. Surprisingly for a site of it's size there was a shop, a games room for the kids and a pub as well. What more could you ask for?! We would definitely recommend it and would go back.

Lovely friendly level park. Excellent toilet/shower facilities (even got a bathroom with a bath!). Great Shop with all basics. Had a good evening meal in Bar from Murphys Kitchen & on the Sunday had a roast which was fantastic. Our son loved the playarea & Games room. Our friends stayed in a static and found that to be extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable. Very freindly staff and other campers. Ideal for exploring Clarks village, Glastonbury, walking & fishing. We also took a trip to Lyme Regis whilst there - took 40mins by car. Would definately return.
