Dulhorn Farm Campsite, Somerset

a0202cf2-5bab-46e8-beff-09e93616bfce

Almost all campsites have their origins in agriculture. Back in the dawn of campsite time, as farmers discovered that tents were a cash-rich crop, campsites arose as farm diversification enterprises. Investment down the years transformed fields to top-flight sites.

Today, though, few fully retain a farm feel. Wide-open fields with pitches only around the perimeters, signed walks along field boundaries, a chance to pause and gaze at herds of Longhorn cattle, views of farm and field as far as the eye can stretch… This is Dulhorn Farm Holiday Park, only five minutes from the M5 yet with a wonderfully remote feel.

We’ve used this site many times as a stopover en route to Cornwall, because of its convenient location. And we’ve often remarked that this place deserves more of our time. Earlier this year a week of holiday gave us the chance to get to know Dulhorn even better.

First-class showering facilities, laundry and washing-up area, one of the best security systems on any site (a height barrier is manually opened, by staff!), large, level pitches, two play areas, a fishing lake, a dog walk and, above all, wide-open vistas – for all of those reasons, Dulhorn is an enchanting site.

It’s been a Premier Park for some years and developed along the way, opening new fields, increasing the number of pitches, but still retaining the Dulhorn principle of only placing pitches around the edges of the fields.

NEED TO DO
During our stay here we followed the signed farm walk and explored the Somerset coast at Brean and Weston-super-Mare. We also perused the architectural magnificence of England’s smallest city, Wells, and devoted a wet day to the Haynes International Motor Museum at Yeovil. A short drive from the site, you’ll also find the fowns of Glastonbury and Street, and Cheddar where you’ll find the famous gorge and caves as well as the Wookey Hole attraction.

EATING OUT
The park is midway between Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea and both are well served for pubs and restaurants. We also discovered a fabulous deli in Bridgwater, called Pyne’s. The Hobbs Boat pub is a couple of miles along the road towards Weston and does decent meals at reasonable prices.
