Burton Springs: View from Stargazer Belle Tent across Alder Pool (course fishing lake)

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, for a super stay in a Somerset wildlife haven.

This peaceful place 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. Please note that fishing is subject to additional charges and must be booked in advance. (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. There's also a games room for all ages, with table football and a dartboard, a selection of board games, DVDs and reading material, and a small play area in the pitching field with a pirate ship, climbing walls, slides and a basket swing.

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

Please note

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Reception is unmanned after 5 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

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

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

On 28 May, 2022, the site will be holiding a Jubilee village fête with live music, different stalls, food and a dog show. Admission is free of charge.

    The dog play area was a god send for our two dogs. The toilet blocks were cleaned regularly and felt like the entire site was maintained very well. The ground of our tent pitch perfectly flat and after rain the site drained well. The grounds had a lovely in use fishing lake to take a short dog walk around. I believe the whole site received good mobile phone signal. We were able to stream a film on an iPad with no lag.

    We stayed in the Lakeview bit, and it’s a lovely site. Toilets amazing and clean. The little games room with a communal kettle and fridge for people to use was a nice little extra touch. Would definitely recommend if you like peace and quiet and a pretty view of the lake.

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The belle tent was great. It had everything we needed including bedding and plates/bowls, cups and cutlery. Bbq/firepit included.
    Clean toilet and shower facilities.
    Kids enjoyed the little play area in the tent field. We had a lovely big area of grass that the belle tents were on so kids had lots of space to play.
    Honesty shop had snacks, cans and cartons available and some essentials which was handy when we realised we needed another toothbrush.

    Disliked: 

    It wasn't too much of an issue, but the area around the toilets was a bit smelly at times. But the cubicles themselves were not smelly.

    The whole site is a very quaint little set up. Basic, quiet and very welcoming. Staff going of their way to make sure your needs are met and most mornings they walk around the pitches asking was everything ok the previous day/night.
    Honesty shop has basic emergency supplies like UHT milk , sugar , tea bags and coffee.
    Great place to set up and go off on walks or day trips.
    Use of the firepit provided is a great way to finish the night off

Local attractions

Burton Springs' 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.
