- Bikes and firepits available 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...
Campers 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 swimming pool, tennis, a play area, plus of course the usual amenities for ablution, laundry, refuse and recycling. Bikes and 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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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 will 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 sixteenth century barn (and, of course, abundant opportunities to sample the results in the farm shop and tearooms).
