Tucker's Grave Inn and Campsite: The pub

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.

    Staff are great and very helpful. Easy going, pitch where you like. Cider is great and many choices.

    Disliked: 

    Website said there would be live music and also called when making booking and was told the same but when we got there we found out there were private parties there and only a poor standard disco for entertainment, not what we were expecting or were told.

    Porta-loos did not have any water for flushing or washing your hands,

    Have stayed here many times before and always enjoyed but think this will be the last time.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

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)
