General

  • Small but spacious site with excellent amenities
  • Excellently-kept amenities including ensuite shower rooms
  • 8 miles from Glastonbury Tor and a 40-minute drive from Bristol

Got that Friday feeling – on a Monday? Want to skip out of town and lie low?

Hole up at The Hideout Camping and Caravan Park, hidden away in Somerset surroundings but only eight miles from Glastonbury Tor, 40 minutes’ drive from Bristol and within an hour of Exeter, Bath and the beaches of Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super-Mare.

Turn off the M5 at Junction 23 and drive four miles through wildlife-laden Somerset countryside to go underground at this peaceful place, with loads of room for kids – and suddenly rejuvenated adults – to run around in.

This is a small site, but so popular you’ll probably want to keep it to yourself: the excellent amenities include separate ladies and gents’ blocks with ensuite shower room in each, sockets for electric razors, drinking water and a chemical disposal point. There are also two separate toilets for guests' use, and free wifi.

Guests have access to a fridge, freezer, kettle and microwave, and when it’s time for washing up, even the dishwashing area is undercover…

Please note that this is a relaxed peaceful site and so ball games are not allowed.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    This was an excellent small site. It had great amenities. Showers and toilets like being at home. Very friendly owners, always happy to help. Providing little extra s, fridge freezer, microwave extra. Very handy if staying a week. We only stayed for a weekend,as we were trying out our newest tent. Will definitely be going back. We highly recommend. 😊

    This is a wonderful little site, the owners were very pleasant and welcoming. The facilities were kept spotlessly clean. We will definitely be booking to return at some point.

    Disliked: 

    The only downside was the pitch wasn't flat with divets and bumps that could easily have had the possibility of causing a trip inside the tent.

From the manager...

Hi Dean and George,

Thank you for taking the time in leaving this fab review and choosing The Hideout for your recent 5 night stay. It was lovely meeting and chatting to you both.
All pitches on the campsite are flat.
However the divets and bumps you refer to on your pitch has been caused by our long hot summer causing the ground to open up with cracks and the heave of the clay soil. These dry conditions unfortunately is nature which we can't control.
We are pleased that this hasn't put you off for any future return and we look forward to welcoming
you both back to The Hideout.

Kind regards
Jackie and Glyn :)

    We have just spent 11 nights at the hideout with our boys aged 7&9, our longest camping trip yet and we can't rate the site highly enough.
    Huge flat pitches, electric hook up and water points. Very peaceful and relaxing on site even when busy over Bank Holiday weekend.
    The bathroom facilities are the best we've used when camping, no need for flip flops in the shower as in most places! Well thought out, exceptionally clean and a good supply of hot water.
    Use of a kettle, microwave, washer and tumble dryer was very handy.
    We explored the local area and the site is perfectly located half an hours drive or so away from most attractions with so much to do.
    The owners Jackie and Glyn make the site the gem it is. From the warm welcome we received on arrival to the tips for days out and places to eat they could not do enough for us. They both work tirelessly to ensure all guests have the best possible time whilst at the Hideout and nothing is too much trouble.
    We will most definitely return when next in the area or sooner if the children have anything to do with it! Their words as we left were "I wish we could stay at the hideout forever!" High praise indeed.
    Thank you Jackie and Glyn.

Hi Becky, Mike, George and Harry,

WOW! What can I say....
Thank you so much for a wonderful review and staying with us at The Hideout.
We are so pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable time here and that you got to visit many places around Somerset and Devon.
We do hope to see you all again if your travels bring you back to Somerset.

P.S. Let Harry know I will keep a puppy back for him next year :)

Directions


We are conveniently located approximately four miles from Junction 23 of the M5 motorway.

Heading along the A39 on the Street/Glastonbury road, you will pass The Olive Mill on the left-hand side where you will then take the next right-hand turn to the village of Stawell.

Follow the road down and at the bottom of the hill the road bends to the right. Please follow this road until you reach a T-junction.

Turn left and follow the main Stawell Road for half a mile and The Hideout is on the left-hand side (second gateway). You may also want to look at Google maps before you set off.

Please note: turn down Tower Road and not Ford Lane.

Local attractions

Very friendly The Hideout owners Jackie and Glyn can offer heaps of advice and info on what to see and do when going off adventuring in these parts, with piles of coast, city and countryside pursuits available within an hour’s drive at most.

The smallest city in England is the City of London, but those looking for a less packed and more relaxed small city sightseeing excursion can wend their way to Wells 20 minutes from The Hideout, a medieval cathedral city and the second smallest city in England.

Leave lots of time to get there: Glastonbury Abbey, Glastonbury Tor and the village of Street, home of Clarks Shoes and Clarks Village, are all on the way. (More shopping, you say? Flash your cash at Kilver Court in Shepton, Mallet, Cribbs Causeway at Bristol, Cabot Circus at Bristol and Bath, and buying All The Cheese at nearby Cheddar.)

Although it’s teeny tiny, there’s a goodly amount of things to do in Wells after letting your jaw drop at the rather fab 12th-century cathedral... History boffins should also make room for Bishops Palace next door, Vicars’ Close, the oldest residential street in Europe, Grade II-listed Milton House overlooking the city, and the Wells and Mendip Museum’s fossil and geology collections from the Mendip Hills.

One of the exhibits at the Wells and Mendip Museum (this one should freak/fascinate the kids) is a skeleton found in nearby Wookey Hole Caves and thought to be the Witch of Wookey Hole (woooooh).

The Wookey Hole Caves are just outside Wells and are now a major family attraction with life-size dinosaurs, adventure golf mirror maze and more; visitors can meet the witch herself during school holidays and most weekends.

Engine enthusiasts can travel to Somerset museums revolving around motors and transport, such as the Helicopter Museum at Weston-super-Mare, and the Haynes International Motor Museum and Fleet Air Arm Museum, both at Yeovil.

The history of Somerset is covered at the Museum of Somerset in Taunton (more shopping here at the Orchard Centre), and at Glastonbury’s Somerset Rural Life Museum, in a fourteenth century barn with exhibits on Somerset’s agricultural and social history (you might particularly like the three-seater toilet).

Seaside days at the Somerset coastline, Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea are also within easy reach, and it’s less than an hour to some of Dorset’s most prized Jurassic Coast and sailing/surfing beaches like Lyme Regis, Weymouth and Bridport.
