General

  • Small, flat touring park in Banwell at the foot of the Mendip Hills
  • Two miles from the M5 and five from Weston-Super-Mare
  • Plenty of open space, spectacular views, barbecue area

As the owners of Myrtle Farm Holidays rightly point out, its setting at the foot of Somerset's Mendip Hills means there's something here for all sorts.

Weston-super-Mare is only five miles away, hilly hikes are on the doorstep, and within a quick drive you'll be at famed Somerset and Wiltshire spots like Cheddar Gorge, Bristol and Bath, Stonehenge, Longleat and anciently idiosyncratic Glastonbury. Its semi-rural location a mile from the village of Banwell has it easily accessible too: Junction 21 of the M5 and Worle train station are both two miles away and Bristol airport within 11 miles.

Under new ownership since 2016, Myrtle Farm is a family-run, small and level touring park, welcoming families and adults, and facing south with excellent views. It's well maintained and spacious with plenty of room for kids to run around.

Facilities include shower and toilet blocks, spotlessly kept and supplied with soap, shower gel and shampoo. Wifi isn't available on the pitches, but a wifi hotspot can be accessed by the amenities.

Village pubs, shops, restaurants, takeaways, a post office and a castle (cream teas in the summer, anyone?) are all a mile away at the farm's local village of Banwell.

    Large pitch,warm welcome,clean facilities,fabulous sunsets.

    *This is a lovely site if you have a caravan or don't mind moving your motorhome-camper to go places.
    Chillies indian takeaway deliver to the site, and this was a great bonus for us!

    Disliked: 

    Constant rumble of the M5 during the night..iam a very light sleeper,but it wasnt an issue for my other half!
    The site had a large dog walking area, but sadly is bounded by roads and there were no footpaths to the village/field to let our dog have some off lead time..
    As Diane pointed out the main road was not a great one to walk along as it was very fast! *Sadly - the nearest bus stop was a mile away, and as we leave our motorhome in situ when we go away we did find it a bit restrictive with the roads being so busy..but was still a lovely site..

From the manager...

Thank you for your review.
We are sorry to see that you won't be visiting us again but respect your reasons.

    Everything is wonderfully clean and tidy. Very informative and friendly welcome.

    Disliked: 

    The one thing that lets the site down is the toilet and shower facilities. They are far too small and if you were to have a shower there isn't anywhere to put your clothes other than hang them over the wall so as not to get wet. If the toilets and showers were made bigger then the site would be absolutely great. If the owners have not used the facilities themselves, they should to see it from their visitors perspective.
    Other than that it was lovely so I hope that they get made bigger so that we could return and also recommend the site to others

From the manager...

Thank you for choosing Myrtle farm Holidays, we are so pleased you like our site.
We can confirm that work starts this winter to replace the showers and toilets with a new spacious, modern facilities. We applied for the planning permissions almost 2 years ago, now that they are finally granted we can start our planned improvements to Myrtle Farm Holidays.
Hope you will come back and see these for your selves.
Many thanks, Diane & Mark.

    Facilities were kept immaculate, relaxed atmosphere, access to fridge/ freezer/ toaster/ microwave/ kettle, close to beach/ WSM/ Cheddar Gorge. Was a really good stay overall.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay, look forward to seeing you again.

Local attractions

The Myrtle Farm Holidays setting at the foot of the Mendip Hills has it perfectly placed for outdoorsy days, with a vast pick of walks, cycle routes, fishing and birdwatching within easy distance.

By car, Cheddar village and the famed and fab Cheddar Gorge are very close by, as is the teeny city of Wells with its cathedral and independent shops. The National Trust-managed Victorian Gothic house of Tyntesfield is ten miles away.

Another cracking option is Glastonbury, with its independent shops and cafés, museums, Glastonbury Abbey and Glastonbury Tor. The golden sandy beaches, seaside shops and wide range of restaurants and bars at Weston-Super-Mare, Brean and Burnham-on-Sea are all within a short drive.

You'll also be within easy driving distance of the cities of Bristol and Bath and their shopping, theatres, cinemas, museums, bars and restaurants. Travel a little further to get to Wiltshire, where must-sees include Stonehenge and Longleat.

Must see

  • Cheddar Caves & Gorge (6.6 miles)
  • Wookey Hole Caves & Papermill (12.1 miles)
