Views of the pitches

General

  • Small, peaceful and friendly site in the Somerset countryside
  • Excellent well-kept amenities including ensuite shower rooms
  • Glastonbury, Wells, Wookey Hole and Cheddar within a half-hour drive

Time for a little escape? Head off to The Hideout Camping and Caravan Park, hidden away in Somerset surroundings but only eight miles from Glastonbury Tor, 40 minutes’ drive from Bristol and within an hour of Exeter, Bath and the beaches of Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super-Mare.

Turn off the M5 at Junction 23 and drive four miles through wildlife-laden Somerset countryside to go underground at this peaceful place, with loads of room for kids – and suddenly rejuvenated adults – to run around in.

This is a small site, but so popular you’ll probably want to keep it to yourself: the excellent amenities include separate ladies and gents’ blocks with ensuite shower room in each, sockets for electric razors, drinking water and a chemical disposal point. There are also two separate toilets for guests' use, and free wifi.

Guests have access to a fridge, freezer, kettle and microwave, and when it’s time for washing up, even the dishwashing area is undercover…

Please note that this is a relaxed peaceful site and so ball games are not allowed.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

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

    A lovely welcome by the Owners, thought given into where we should pitch. Wow what a great size pitch for our 2 cars and large tent. Owners could not help enough even directing us to a lovely local pub for our first evening meal and a map with places of interest. Even marking the golf clubs for my Husband ! The site is definitely a hideout amazing views and if you want peace and quiet no better place to be. The showers and toilets are the best I’ve ever seen on a campsite . The Hideout is a real credit to the owners and can’t wait to book our next trip.

Directions


The site is conveniently located approximately four miles from Junction 23 of the M5 motorway.

Heading along the A39 on the Street/Glastonbury road, you will pass The Olive Mill on the left-hand side where you will then take the next right-hand turn to the village of Stawell.

Follow the road down and at the bottom of the hill the road bends to the right. Please follow this road until you reach a T-junction.

Turn left and follow the main Stawell Road for half a mile and The Hideout is on the left-hand side (second gateway). You may also want to look at Google maps before you set off.

Please note: turn down Tower Road and not Ford Lane.

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

Very friendly The Hideout owners Jackie and Glyn can offer heaps of advice and info on what to see and do when going off adventuring in these parts, with piles of coast, city and countryside pursuits available within an hour’s drive at most.

The smallest city in England is the City of London, but those looking for a less packed and more relaxed small city sightseeing excursion can wend their way to Wells 20 minutes from The Hideout, a medieval cathedral city and the second smallest city in England.

Leave lots of time to get there: Glastonbury Abbey, Glastonbury Tor and the village of Street, home of Clarks Shoes and Clarks Village, are all on the way. (More shopping, you say? Flash your cash at Kilver Court in Shepton, Mallet, Cribbs Causeway at Bristol, Cabot Circus at Bristol and Bath, and buying All The Cheese at nearby Cheddar.)

Although it’s teeny tiny, there’s a goodly amount of things to do in Wells after letting your jaw drop at the rather fab 12th-century cathedral... History boffins should also make room for Bishops Palace next door, Vicars’ Close, the oldest residential street in Europe, Grade II-listed Milton House overlooking the city, and the Wells and Mendip Museum’s fossil and geology collections from the Mendip Hills.

One of the exhibits at the Wells and Mendip Museum (this one should freak/fascinate the kids) is a skeleton found in nearby Wookey Hole Caves and thought to be the Witch of Wookey Hole (woooooh).

The Wookey Hole Caves are just outside Wells and are now a major family attraction with life-size dinosaurs, adventure golf mirror maze and more; visitors can meet the witch herself during school holidays and most weekends.

Engine enthusiasts can travel to Somerset museums revolving around motors and transport, such as the Helicopter Museum at Weston-super-Mare, and the Haynes International Motor Museum and Fleet Air Arm Museum, both at Yeovil.

The history of Somerset is covered at the Museum of Somerset in Taunton (more shopping here at the Orchard Centre), and at Glastonbury’s Somerset Rural Life Museum, in a fourteenth century barn with exhibits on Somerset’s agricultural and social history (you might particularly like the three-seater toilet).

Seaside days at the Somerset coastline, Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea are also within easy reach, and it’s less than an hour to some of Dorset’s most prized Jurassic Coast and sailing/surfing beaches like Lyme Regis, Weymouth and Bridport.
