Seven super campsites in Somerset


These seven top-rated campsites in Somerset offer some of the best camping experiences in the south west of England.

Whether you are looking for a family break with all the trimmings of a traditional seaside holiday, or an adults-only escape to experience some of Somerset’s wonderful scenery, one of these Premier Parks will fit the bill. Each member of the Premier Parks group is visited and assessed each year by the editorial team behind MMM, Caravan, Camping, and outandaboutlive.co.uk to ensure that they meet the highest standards.

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park (adults only)

Bishop Sutton, Bath BS39 5TZ
This adults-only campsite may have just 35 touring pitches, but is proof of the maxim that good things come in small packages. It’s a real winner for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and is just a short walk to a championship fishing lake. The attractions of Bath, Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare, as well as the scenic Mendip Hills, are within easy reach and there’s a pub and shop only a few hundred yards away.

Country View Holiday Park

Sand Bay, Weston-Super-Mare BS22 9UJ
Just a short walk from the beautiful Sand Bay beach, this first-rate campsite’s facilities include a large heated outdoor swimming pool and a licensed bar with a sun patio. Close to Weston-super-Mare, it offers 120 touring pitches and good access from junction 21 of the M5. There's also a laundry room, children's play area, an arcade and games room on site, and a choice of restaurants in the nearby area.

Dulhorn Farm Holiday Park

Lympsham, Weston-super-Mare BS24 0JQ
Handy for the famous Cheddar Gorge, the Mendip Hills and the beaches at Weston and Brean, Dulhorn Farm offers level grassed pitches for caravans, motorhomes and tents, with electric hook-ups set in a secure site with barrier access. Facilities include a play area and a shop that stocks essential supplies open at peak times or on request. The campsite offers seasonal and part season pitches, together with CaSSOA-registered storage facilities.

Exe Valley Caravan Site (adults only)

Bridgetown, Dulverton TA22 9JR
In the heart of Exmoor National Park, nestling among trees, Exe Valley Caravan Site has an idyllic and sheltered setting. Each of the 50 pitches is next to either the River Exe or a gentle mill stream. There are ample electric/television hook-ups, as well as a small on-site shop and heated toilet blocks. Opposite is the Badgers Holt Inn, which serves excellent real ale and bar food daily. Red deer and Exmoor ponies roam free in the area.
