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

Beautiful Site with very friendly staff 02/10/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Zoe N. Confirmed

  • Quantock View camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Absolutely beautiful site with friendly, helpful owners. we stayed in the Quantock view pod overlooking kingfisher lake. we are a young couple that don't fish but the site was perfectly serene (just what we wanted) they even had a little self sustained shop which had treats and essentials in! the pod was so warm and cosy, we really really enjoyed our stay :)

    Disliked: 

    The only downside we can mention is the futon/bed in the Quantock pod. obviously its great that they have provided a futon, however, you can really feel the wood in your back as unfortunately, the mattress/cover is very thin. it may be a good idea to take extra layers to sleep on

    Thank you to Adam and Kirsty for providing such a warm welcome, and for being so helpful during my brief weekend stay.The site and facilities were clean and tidy. A beautiful part of the world, and considering it was bank holiday weekend, it was very peaceful - just what I needed to relax and recharge! Lots of places to walk my dog too :) Hope to see you again, Debbie.

    Disliked: 

    The light in the shower is on a sensor, and while showering the light kept turning off which was a bit disconcerting!

    Really enjoyed staying at Burton fishery despite not fishing. Adam and Kirsty were very friendly and helpful. They helped to make our stay very comfortable. The toilets and showers were kept very clean. Would recommend to anyone that wants a holiday away from it all. The Babbling Brook pub that was near by was also excellent and worth a visit for dinner.

    Disliked: 

    The only problem i had was the light in the shower didn't stay on for very long and i had to wave my arms about.

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.
