General

  • Peaceful site at the foot of the Quantock Hills
  • Three fishing lakes on site
  • A base for Cheddar, Glastonbury and the Exmoor and Somerset coast

Solo sorts, families, couples and most of all anglers… come and get sorted at serene and scenic Burton Springs Fishery, a peaceful place in a Somerset wildlife haven.

This lovely locale is at the foot of the Quantock Hills and a nifty base for getting out around the Quantocks, the west Somerset and Exmoor coastline, and smashing Somerset settings like Cheddar Gorge and Glastonbury Abbey, both under 20 miles away.

And if your group are fisherfolk? Cast off on site in the three handsome and well-stocked lakes: there's one each of coarse fishing, carp fishing and cat fishing to keep all angling enthusiasts hooked. (Non-fisherfolk have plenty of wildlife to see, walks to wander and quiet spots in which to hide with a book or three.)

Burton Springs is well kept all round by its friendly family team, who've added a spankingly clean shower and washroom as well as a washing-up area for guests' use.

Food and drinks are available to buy in the site shop.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

    The place is very well organized, neat and clean. the owners Adam and Kristy are very friendly and easy to communicate with and helpful.
    I went there with my 2 brothers and we had a great time and surely will come back.
    Eventhough it rained in the night, there is a small gaming room with some darts and board games where you can spend some time if you don't have anything to do.
    The campsite has also a shower and hot water is always available.
    One thing to keep in mind is the mobile reception is quite bad in the whole area or maybe it is because of my network provider but this could be something good to turn off your mobile for a while :)

Local attractions

Burton Spring's closest chunk of coast is at Burnham-On-Sea about seven and a half miles away. Seaside resort Weston-super-Mare is a few miles further along the coast from Burnham; for the Exmoor coastline, stretches of shoreline and sand like Kilve, Dunster, Minehead and Porlock are a short drive in the other direction.

The South West Coast Path, Britain's longest long-distance path, starts from Minehead on its epic 630 miles via the coasts of Devon and Cornwall to finish up at Poole Harbour in Dorset.

If this is a tad too much, other hikes around the region include the Quantock Hills, England's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; Brean Down, a Site of Special Scientific Interest managed by the National Trust, and the Mendip Hills, also an AONB and home to splendidly spectacular Cheddar Gorge.

The Burton team also reckons guests should take a look at the small wildlife and adventure park Tropiquaria; the National Trust's Dunster Castle and Fyne Court; the Bakelite Museum at Wilton; the RSPB reserve at Greylake, and the rides and attractions of Brean Leisure Park.

Paintballing is available at Cannington Park, nearby at Bridgwater.

Must see

  • Cheddar Caves & Gorge (17.9 miles)
