Glamping wagons in the gardens

General

  • Retro glamping units in a peaceful riverside glade near Crewkerne
  • Half an hour's drive from Glastonbury and the Jurassic Coast
  • On a 14-acre historic estate with pub and restaurant

Seeking a serene Somerset stay? Have a hassle-free hol at Haselbury Mill, on a cracking 14-acre estate five minutes from Crewkerne.

This is a place with quite a chunk of history behind it – the original buildings date all the way back (way, way back) to the times of William the Conqueror. The glamping units, in a gorgeous little glade by the Parrett river, are from days of yore too (although they’re very much of the vintage variety rather than the ancient).

The wagons here are traditional numbers, collected in a quiet corner and cleverly restored to hang on to the best of their retro features while upping the comfort factor by throwing in some modern bits and bobs, including tea and coffee making facilities (vital for those who simply can’t function until they’ve had their morning cuppa.) Smart modern toilet and shower facilities are housed in another wagon parked up in the same spacious clearing.

Need more than a cup of tea to get you going of a morning? Sorted: a generous breakfast is provided for all glamping guests, and served up a short walk away in the main mill. With any luck that’ll see you through your days out (hiking, beachcombing or gadding about in Glastonbury, perhaps) until it’s time to come back and settle in once again for evening drinks and a meal.

Bag a table by the lakeside restaurant’s glass wall for dinner with a view, or potter over to the site’s pub for woodfired pizzas and pies to accompany pints of local ale or cider.

Please note

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

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

The shepherd's hut is not recommended for people above 5'8" because the width of the hut restricts the length of the bed.

  • Liked: 

    We stayed in one of the vintage caravans which was perfect for a family of 4 and 2 dogs! As a last minute booking we weren’t expecting too much but it was far more spacious than we expected. The kids loved the “retro” style and we found it a great base to visit the surrounding areas in Somerset and Dorset.
    The breakfasts were great and COVID-19 control’s were in place. Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful especially when we had an issue with the shower which they fixed almost immediately. The grounds of the hotel are stunning and there are plenty of old cars, gypsy caravans and even a tank for the kids (& big kids) to look at.
    We didn’t have dinner at the hotel but the food did look great and based on the breakfast quality, we’d happily eat there.
    Overall, we loved our stay as it was different from the norm, the caravan was something unique to us and with the hotel facilities on hand, you have everything you need.

    Disliked: 

    No fridge in the caravan.

Thank you very much for taking time to write us a lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and it means so much to us for you to highlight all the points we work so hard to achieve. I am of course disappointed to read that your drinks didn't turn up, please accept my sincerest apologies for this and be assured your comments have been passed back to the team. Unfortunately you will find creepy crawlies on most glamping sites but I hope they didn't bother you too much. It appears overall you had a wonderful stay and we look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon.

  • Shepherd's hut
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The facilities our shepherd's hut were as cosy and comfortable as they looked on the website, and the welcome was truly warm. We lacked for nothing, and enjoyed the peace and quiet to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food at the restaurant was also delicious, and with copious quantities too - we were nearly too stuffed for pudding! The road is quite close to the glade site, but the cars stop early in this quiet country location and certainly did not disturb us. Definitely recommended!

Local attractions

Inspired by all the bits of the past on display around the estate? There’s plenty more nearby. On a rather grander scale than your digs (fab though they are) are the smart stately homes of Montacute House, a Tudor pile with gorgeous formal gardens (15 minutes’ drive) and Barrington Court, home to a walled garden and orchard (20 minutes).

Orchards are a fairly common sight around these parts, and their offerings go towards creating the famed Somerset cider. Sample a sip or several at Burrow Hill Cider (20 minutes) – they’ve been pressing the stuff for more than 200 years so they know a thing or two. If you fancy a snifter of something stronger, their cider brandy is worth trying too.

Burrow further back in history with a trip to Glastonbury Tor (half an hour) to hear tales of King Arthur and Excalibur; or delve into the age of the dinosaurs down at the Jurassic Coast. Charmouth beach (half an hour) still harbours ancient fossils, for those who know where to look (and that’d be in the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre if you’re not lucky with seeking out your own).

Must see

  • Montacute House (4.5 miles)
  • Mapperton House & Gardens (7.7 miles)
  • Fleet Air Arm Museum (9.9 miles)
