  • Award-winning park in a green wildlife haven
  • A mile and a half from Chard and 12 from Charmouth
  • Heated outdoor pool, play area and firepits for hire

There’s more than a hint of Enid Blyton’s Famous Five about Alpine Grove Touring Park: pitches among secret groves of rhododendron, dappled with shade from the oak trees towering above, plus den building in the woods, scavenger trails, biking and hiking adventures around the local countryside, picnics and sausage-fuelled singalongs by the fire. Bet they sell lashings of ginger beer in the on-site shop…

Guests here can choose between sun or shade, seclusion among the rhododendrons or a more open grassy area for their pitch. In addition to all the good old-fashioned fun outlined above, there’s a heated outdoor pool and a play area, plus of course the usual amenities for ablutions, laundry, refuse and recycling. Firepits are available for hire, and well-behaved dogs are welcome.

A level cycle path runs along the disused railway line between Chard and Ilminster, or for a more challenging ride, the 80-mile loop of the South Somerset Cycle Route goes right past the site. There are also plenty of walks for all abilities, and golf, fishing and horse riding nearby.

Local attractions

All the attractions of south Somerset, Devon and Dorset are within easy reach, so it’s impossible to list more than a few highlights here… The popular seaside town of Lyme Regis is renowned for its Cobb beach, fossils and links to Jane Austen, and has a good museum. Forde Abbey, a stately home which used to be a Cistercian monastery, has stunning gardens, and soft fruit lovers are likely to find its ‘pick your own’ farm berry exciting (jostaberries, anyone?).

Europe’s biggest collection of naval aircraft is hosted at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton, which regularly hosts special events, from Dalek invasions to drag racing.

Within the lovely orchards of Perry’s Cider Mills, there’s an interesting museum of old cider presses housed in a 16th-century barn (and, of course, abundant opportunities to sample the results in the farm shop and tearooms).
