One of the best campsites we’ve seen, with delightful panoramic views of the Mendip Hills, this top quality ‘Adults only’ campsite lies just 3/4 mile from the base of Glastonbury Tor. Beautifully landscaped, it offers level pitches in a series of attractive locations. First class facilities are complemented by a well-stocked shop and off licence, games room and pond with fishing platforms suitable for the disabled. The campsite has a large dog walk, pool table, book exchange and footpaths to Glastonbury and the Tor. Free WiFi for browsing plus optional paid high speed broadband for 2018.

The entire campsite is gently sloping but all 100 pitches are level, with most divided by hedges or flowering shrubs, into private bays. All 88 touring pitches are 'all-weather' gravel, with their own grass area for sitting. A mix of 29 standard, 52 super and 7 premier. The park has also increased its glamping accommodation for 2017, now comprising of 6 pods, 2 luxury shepherd's huts (one with hot tub) and 4 mini lodges (one with hot tub).  All glamping have their own fire pit and outdoor seating as standard and the newest units also have sun loungers.

This is a first class, five-star campsite in an equally fantastic position, in unspoilt countryside with panoramic views of the Mendips. Glastonbury and the magical Tor, one of Somerset’s most famous landmarks, are a short walk away.

Reception combines an extremely well-stocked shop; farm fresh free-range eggs, home produced meat, fresh croissants and milk are available, while newspapers and fresh bread are collected for you to order, with the added attraction of an off-licence and home-baked cakes.

Opposite the shop is a games room, with pool table and TV, comfortable sofas, a big range of tourist leaflets, free walking maps and plenty of information about the local area.

Larger than average pitches are set in several landscaped areas; the Walnut Circle has spacious hardstandings, all of which are fully-serviced, set around a large grass circle centred by mature shrubs. This area is particularly popular, so book well in advance to bag a pitch here.

Above this are terraces with hardstandings; suitable for tents or camper vans and the other side of the footpath to Glastonbury and the Tor is the Orchard, which still retains a few cider apple trees. Here there is a mix of tiered hardstanding, fully serviced, 3 glamping cabins, 2 shepherd’s huts and 4 mini lodges.

A network of scenic footpaths surrounds the campsite, while the cyclist has quiet country lanes to explore. Gog and Magog, the ancient oaks are nearby.

The fisherman has a 1/2 acre pond to fish that has 12 platforms suitable for the disabled. The original, heated amenity block has been partly refurbished and now has 3 new private wetrooms and a beautiful vanity bar for the ladies. There are also private washing cubicles, disabled facilities, laundry, washing up sinks and a freezer and microwave facility.

Their newest amenities block is one of the finest in the industry and it incorporates the use of renewable energy sources - very much in keeping with the green ethos. The large foyer leads to seven unisex shower cubicles, each equipped with a wet room-style shower, hand basin, mirror, hand drier and toilet. Guests with accessible needs have an extra-large disabled suite. There are additional showers, wash basins and toilets in separate ladies and gents areas. One of the nice extra touches includes a separate make-up area with mirrors and electrical sockets for hair care equipment in the ladies. Also in this complex is a washing up area with four sinks, plus a microwave oven and ice pack freezer (free to use). Another 'Old Oaks touch' is the provision of a washer and dryer dedicated for dog blankets and bedding.

The whole space is light and airy thanks to high ceilings with large sky-lights and beautifully tiled floors and walls. Solid oak doors complement the building which is faced entirely in local stone.

Little added extras: free walking maps caravan cleaning, fish and chip night, Chinese night, Indian night, Kebab night, doggy shower with warm water, discounts at local eateries. New for 2018 will be a weekly Wood-fired pizza night.

The campsite encourages visitors to recycle where possible, with two recycling points. Fresh water points are situated near to all pitches, this campsite is well landscaped, clean and neat - one of the best we’ve visited.     

Planned for 2018 – upgraded wifi system, BBQ cleaning stations, Camperclean toilet cassette machines, upgraded motorhome service point.
