What time can we check in and out?
Check in will be after 12 noon and check out is 11am on your last day
Will my SatNav take me there?
Please look at our website for directions as the sat nav takes you down a farm track!!
Are there pubs nearby?
From the farm, you can walk to The Plough pub which is 15 minutes on foot. It is dog friendly and serves regular pub grub! We have a private track so avoiding the main road.
The Hood Arms in Kilve has a lovely beer garden and is perfect for a special occasion. You can also walk avoiding the main road, but it's abit of a hike back and takes approximately 45 minutes. By car it is 3 minutes down the road.
Also The Babbling Brook in Shurton and The Ancient Mariner in Nether Stowey are a short drive from the site.
Is there a shop nearby?
There is a village shop and post office in Kilve. It sells fresh bread and has a good stock of necessities. Further along the A39 is Williton for a bakery, butcher and 'The Co-Op.'. Local supermarkets can be found in Minehead or Bridgwater.
Do you have a freezer for ice packs?
Yes we have a communal fridge/freezer in our bbq hut.
Are there charging points if I don’t have an electric pitch?
Yes we have plug sockets in our bbq hut. There is also a secret phone charging point in the dishwashing area between the ladies and gents loos. It is up on the wall above the shelf so you can tuck your phone away to charge.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes we are very dog friendly. However we ask that dogs are kept on a lead at all times due to our free range chickens, ducks and children
Please make sure you clean up after your dog and use the dog bins in the lanes, thank you.
Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in the pods.
Can I have an open fire?
Yes we allow fires in our large tent field and have firepits spaced out for use. We ask that these are not moved due to burning the grass. Please purchase logs from reception. A wheelbarrow of locally sourced logs are £7
Can I have a bbq by my pitch?
If you have a bbq that is raised above the ground, you can bbq on your pitch. If you have a low level bbq, we prefer you to use our large tent field. We have blocks behind our bbq hut to borrow to raise your bbq off the ground.
You can also find 2 bbq’s for communal use in our bbq hut. Please pop back when you have used them and give a clean ready for the next person. You can find a wire brush hanging in the bbq hut.
Also bin for ash in bbq hut
Can I arrive earlier than 12 noon for my pitch?
We prefer new arrivals from 12 noon so that we can get the toilet/shower blocks clean and grass cut in the morning. There is a lay-by in Holford before you reach the village if you are towing where you can stop. Unfortunately we do not have a car park as we are a small farm campsite.
Can I check out late?
Check out is 11am. However if your pitch is not booked, we charge £2.50 per person to stay until 3pm. Please ask at reception if this is an option.
What facilities do you have on site for children?
We have a large climbing area with a slide for children. This area works best for families as it is a safe field where you can see your children from your pitch. It is also the furthest point, so cars only use the bottom entrance/exit
The toilet block has a large disabled for families with a shower, loo and sink
We have free range chickens and ducks wandering around the site. Please ask children not to chase and try to catch them!
What facilities do the PODS have?
Woodlands Pod - £55 per night
Shervage Pod -£60 per night
The difference in price is due to Shervage Pod having slightly higher walls.
They have a horse-shoe of beds with mattresses and a suspended bed. there is a kettle, small fridge, microwave, fan heater and plug sockets. Outside you have a wooden table and chairs, bbq and fire pit in-between the two pods.
You will need to bring everything for camping e.g bedding, crockery, cutlery etc
Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in the pods.
Do you have a shop on site?
We have a small shop at reception. This is more for souvenirs, firewood, charcoal, Calor gas and camping gas, ice cream, cold drinks and long life milk. There is a shop in Kilve 3 minutes down the road.
What do you recommend to do in the area?
If you haven't visited our area of Somerset before, here are some of our favourite things to do!
If you wanted some short trips, Kilve beach is a 5 minute drive from the site. Great for rock pooling and fossil hunting. Tea rooms for a cream tea too. You can also walk avoiding the main road. It takes around 45 minutes. Please look at the noticeboard in the main toilet block for directions.
Coleridge Cottage National Trust house in Nether Stowey. Serves great cake!
Great Wood at Ranscombe is 15 minutes away. It is really well set up for outside BBQ and picnic'. Lovely walks and streams for the children to play in.
Dunster Castle (National Trust) 30 minute drive, often has events over school holidays. Lovely gardens for a walk and a cafe. One of our special places to eat 'The Luttrel Arms' also in the village. It has a pub menu or a special dining restaurant depending on what you are looking for. My youngest loves the fairy shop there so we always have to pop in!
Fyne Court is another National Trust Woodland near us. If it has Wild Wednesday on I will put this on our Website. It is great for a walk and minibeast hunt. Good Cafe with homemade cakes.
You might like to look up Hestercombe Gardens. I often take the children to meet up with friends there. It has a playarea, really good cafe, lovely gardens and again runs activities for kids in the holidays.
West Somerset railway can be hopped on at Williton (15 minutes away). We tend to get it to Minehead. If your little ones are into scooting, there is an indoor skatepark Minehead Eye. Good for a wet day. Has a climbing wall, cafe and runs special events over the holidays.
Minehead has all the arcades, some independent shops and of course fish and chips. Lovely organic cafe Toucan which we enjoy when there and think Friday is the farmers market. Also home to Butlins which does day passes if the idea of staying there is not your cup of tea!
Fish and chips at Watchet are good and a stroll around the harbour. They have some antique shops and a museum. Also 'Street Fair' first weekend of the month.
If you wanted a bucket and spade day, Blue Anchor beach is good. There is the Driftwood cafe there and also you can swim at Holborn caravan site. Quite a small pool, but good for little ones. Car boot sale on a Saturday afternoon.
As for cycling, most of the local trails are on our Facebook page. If you look up, Wills Neck Quantock Hills, Triscombe Stone and Crowcombe you should find some good ideas for trails. They are accessed safely from the campsite down our private farm track.
There are wetlands near us that are good for cycling and bird watching. If you look up Steart Marshes you will find all the info. It is a 15 minute drive from us.
