Campsite of the Month: Dulhorn Farm Holiday Park, Somerset

0ac8b402-9912-472b-9eab-1b57b2d436c6

Words by Val Chapman

Almost all campsites have their origins in agriculture.

Back in the dawn of ‘campsite time’, as farmers discovered that tents and, much later, motorhomes, were a cash-rich crop, campsites arose as farm diversification enterprises. Investment over the years has transformed fields into top-flight campsites.

Today, though, few fully retain a farm feel.

Wide-open fields with pitches only around the perimeters, signed walks along field boundaries, chance to pause and gaze at herds of Longhorn cattle, views of farm and field as far as the eye can stretch.

Popular stopover site

This is Dulhorn Farm Holiday Park, which is five minutes from the M5 and yet has a wonderfully remote feel.

This site is a very popular stopover en route to Cornwall, because of its convenient location. However, many visitors have realised that this site deserves more of their time.

First-class showering facilities, laundry and washing-up area, one of the best security systems on any campsite (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 these reasons, Dulhorn is an enchanting campsite.

New hardstanding pitches

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 touring pitches around the edges of the fields) and, for this year, more hardstandings have been added to the site.

Guests are encouraged to explore and can follow a signed farm walk, as well as heading out to explore the Somerset coast at Brean and Weston-super-Mare, or to try the fabulous deli called Pyne's at Bridgwater.

Guests can also peruse the architectural magnificence of England’s smallest city, Wells, or head over to the Haynes International Motor Museum at Yeovil, which is particularly attractive should the weather turn wet.

All of this and more is on your doorstep when staying at Dulhorn.
