Tucker's Grave Inn and Campsite: Lovely shade

General

  • Wild camping alongside one of the oldest cider pubs in Somerset
  • Regular live music and events in the barn
  • Large sheltered field for wild camping two minutes' walk from the pub

Cider connoisseurs: you’ll find this site most sweet indeed. Tucker's Grave Inn is a traditional cider pub that’s one of the oldest in Somerset: its doors first opened to thirsty travellers over 200 years ago…

The pub these days has been unchanged for over a century: no TVs, flashing fruit machines or noisy jukeboxes here, just a friendly and lively vibe, a community of locals and visitors… and a roaring open fire to curl up in front of. ‘A proper pub’, ‘timeless excellence’ and ‘probably the best pub ever’ are a sample of guest views on this lovely old inn… and, as is fitting for such an old place, you might spy a cat snoozing gently on the windowsill too…

Tipple options at Tucker's include Butcombe Original straight from the barrel, and a nicely rounded range of traditional ciders such as Cheddar Valley, Black Rat, Rich's and Pheasant Plucker… or you might opt for Mallets sparkling cider, beer… or tea/coffee if you prefer your beverages non-boozy. Whatever you pick, fortify yourself for evenings, as there's regular live music in the barn.

Outside, there’s a beer garden with spectacular Somerset views as well as a firepit to cosy around over an evening pint, and the inn also has a skittle alley with a woodburning stove. You can play shove ha’penny in the Tap Room too (yes, kids do regularly become fans of this rather quickly).

Camping is in a large sheltered field a nifty two-minute totter from the pub, three and a half miles from the village of Faulkland and about 25 minutes' drive from Bath. There's water access and the site has 24-hour toilets as well as portaloos around the pitches.

Lovely place to camp08/06/2021

  • Liked: 

    I love it here. It’s a peaceful and relaxed place to stay but with just enough going on there, e.g. excellent live music. Clean campsite with adequate facilities. Friendly staff, there’s a really nice atmosphere here. Great pub location and we camped in a field with a stream.....well, there’s several fields, this is a reasonably big campsite. We camped in a very level field surrounded by lush trees and fields. Pitches were a nice distance apart with plenty of space generally. The pub stocks some really good Somerset ciders and there’s loads of outside seating.
    There was food if you needed it. I had a spicy bean burger which tasted really good. Rural setting but close to Wiltshire, Frome, Bath and Radstock.
    You can hire fire pits or bring your own.

    Disliked: 

    We’ve visited here several times over the years. The new owners have done loads to improve this site but a shower block would be good. Loos were clean but still portaloos; a toilet block would be nicer. These are minor issues and I imagine it will be on their list of future improvements and certainly wouldn’t stop us camping here again or recommending it to others. A shop for basics like bread and milk would be good but it’s not far from town so not really a problem.

Directions

Local attractions

There are plentiful ways to take in the scenic surrounds while working up a thirst for your evening pint: saddle up for horse or pony treks 10 minutes’ drive away, or head to Bradford-on-Avon to don a captain's hat and navigate a barge through local waterways. If you'd rather just take a walk, a fine place is Westbury (25 minutes), where you can wander off in search of its 55-metre White Horse, carved into the chalk hills.

More leisurely days out might take you for a fragrant bimble among the blooms of Somerset Lavender (five minutes' drive) or along the pretty paths at Prior Park Landscape Gardens (15 minutes). Best be allocating a whole day to a trip to Longleat (20 minutes) too, especially if you've got the small sorts in tow; there’s a huge collection of wild beasts to see on the safari trails, and also some rather gorgeous gardens to stroll through.

Town times may well feature on your schedule too: you can drive to Bath in around 25 minutes, or take in Wells (35 minutes), Glastonbury (45 minutes) or Bristol (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Prior Park Landscape Garden (4.9 miles)
  • American Museum in Britain (5.9 miles)
  • Sally Lunn's Historic Eating House & Museum (5.9 miles)
