General

  • Small but spacious site with excellent amenities
  • Excellently-kept amenities including ensuite shower rooms
  • 8 miles from Glastonbury Tor and a 40-minute drive from Bristol

Got that Friday feeling – on a Monday? Want to skip out of town and lie low?

Hole up at 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

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

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

    Really enjoyed The Hideout after staying for 2 nights. My wife is a reluctant camper however the shower & bathroom facilities provided made the whole experience really enjoyable. We really could not fault with The Hideout and the owners really care about ensuring your stay is hassle free. Great location for visiting Glastonbury and will definitely return again. A real gem !!

    We booked The Hideout as a last minute week end break away. We received an email confirmation but also a personal one from the owner Jackie giving best advice on how to get there.
    We arrived to a spotlessly clean campsite with very modern facilities. Beautifully kept grounds and lovely ensuite personal toilet/bathroom/shower facilities as a mini bathroom. When I say personal I don't mean each camper has one each but when you use the facilities everything enclosed in one with a lockable door. More than one available.
    The campsite is ideally situated for all around the Somerset area but especially burnham on sea (10 mins in one direction away) Strret/Clarks shopping village (10 mins in the other direction). Slightly further on Wells cathedral, Glastonbury Tor Weston super Mare Cheddar Gorge etc.
    Jackie was most friendly when we arrived and left. Would we return - most definitely and for longer than one night YES!
    Although we booked through a third party web site we have The Hideout direct contact details to book again.
    Suitable for families or couples. If you are wanting a camp site with all singing and dancing entertainment then this may not be for you but our children (now grown up) have happily played on campsites like this with their own footballs/skipping ropes etc and been more than happy.
    Suitable for caravans or tents elcrtic hook up or not. If you are there as a couple and after a quieter spot a separate field with no electric is available.
    Our only regret we forgot to leave this fantastic review in the visitors comment said book and for that we are sorry.

Hi Susan and Paul,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for taking the time to advise of your recent stay at The Hideout.
It is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain and indeed, where necessary, improve on the service we provide to our valued campers.
It was lovely meeting you both and hope you had a great trip back via Clarks Village.
Hope to see you both again very soon :)

Warmest regards
Jackie

Directions


We are 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.

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.
