- Secluded Somerset wild camping spot on a working farm near Crewkerne
- South Somerset Cycleway 15 minutes' drive; Jurassic Coast 40 minutes
- Sole occupancy of a woodland glade; firepit, barbecue and shack toilet
So you want to get away from it all for a few days? Here’s your chance. The wild camping pitch at Manor Farm is hidden away in a peaceful woodland glade near Crewkerne in rural Somerset. No fellow campers, no-one to disturb you. Just the chance to wake up to the singing of birds and the sound of the burbling of the stream nearby, perhaps accompanied by the gentle mooing of the cows in surrounding fields.
Accessing the site is easy: there’s dedicated car parking space a short walk away from the pitch. Once you're there all is pretty basic: simple facilities stretch to a toilet shack and a mains water tap (no shower and no electricity, please note). There’s a cleared and chipped space for pitching a tent, plus a massive firepit and barbecue area, so you can boil kettles on the open fire and grill up supper.
If you need extra supplies, just follow the footpaths from the farm to the sleepy mellow-stone village of Merriott (five minutes’ walk) and pick up essentials from the handy store. For a change of scenery, you can stop off at the lively café in a converted chapel or head straight for the local pub.

Use Manor Farm as a base for walking stretches of the River Parrett Trail, or stop off at Ham Hill Country Park (both 10 minutes) and have a potter around its sprawling Iron Age hill fort. Cycle trails cross southern Somerset’s Mendip and Blackdown hills, and the challenges of the South Somerset Cycleway (15 minutes) are easily accessed too.
Sea air a number-one priority? Head to Lyme Regis Fossil Beach (40 minutes) or Charmouth (35 minutes) on the Jurassic Coast to go hunting for ammonites, or choose Seaton (45 minutes) for its long shingle expanse, promenade walks and traditional seaside attractions like fish and chip shops or ice-cream kiosks.
There are plenty of stately homes to poke around too; the lovingly restored Tudor-era National Trust-owned Barrington Court (15 minutes) also has lovely grounds with walled gardens and orchard walks. Lytes Cary Manor is another National Trust property, this one with paths leading through exotic topiary hedges and lavender gardens. Anyone with a love of military history can tour the Fleet Air Arm Museum (both 20 minutes) with its huge collection of aircraft.
