The Den and Orchard: Car park

General

  • Family-friendly site in a rural spot three miles from Frome
  • A 15-minute drive from Longleat House and Longleat Safari Park
  • Firepits and games room on site, plus takeaway for meals and drinks

What are you going to want for dinner on your Somerset break? Perhaps the fickle British climate will bless you with barbecue weather… or it’s possible you’ll feel like lazing around with a tasty takeaway…

Frankly, who knows what your future self will be feeling like, so it’s a crafty move to grab a spot at The Den and Orchard, where both are equally easy options. And that’s because this family-friendly site happens to have its own fab takeaway right on site (open evenings from Thursday to Saturday).

The food offerings here are tempting indeed: get set for a menu of burgers, pizzas, main meals and a range of drinks, all of which should contribute to a lovely laidback evening . Frugal types and those planning a bit of outdoor cheffing can acquire essentials at the supermarkets in Frome, three miles away.

Firepits and chimeneas have been set up around the site for cooking and flame gazing; there’s also a washing-up area and a wooden toilet block with gents’ and ladies’ toilets and showers. A games room (with darts, table football and table tennis) is on hand too, for damp evenings and general entertainment.

The Den and Orchard is on the edge of Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there are plenty of walks nearby to help you work up an appetite. Other days out nearby include fishing, mountain biking, visits to National Trust properties and the excellent Longleat Safari Park.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Minimum spacing of 4 metres between pitches.

    Small well kept site, level picked, clean and modern facilities, games room (ping pong and football table), free picnic benches and fire pits to use, reasonably priced food to take away in the evenings. The family who run this site are really friendly and accommodating.

    Disliked: 

    Video games in the games room - my son loved this, but we hoped to get away from technology.

    Another amazing stay at The Den and Orchard! The site is so family friendly with lots of space for the children to play and an amazing games room - ping pong was a family favourite. All the facilities are clean and tidy and the pitches are nice and level. We also ordered food which was delicious and great value. We can't wait to stay again!

    A bit of noise from the nearby road but got used to it.
    Games room - Darts were a bit unsafe in little children hands, but owners appreciated feedback and immediate changes made to improve safety in this regard.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely size site, only a dozen pitches or so, nicely sheltered from wind with surrounding trees, but still getting plenty of sun.
    Great facilities, all new or nearly new and well thought out (even a microwave and a kettle if needed).
    Owners were very friendly and couldn't be more helpful.
    No cars on the main site so kids could run around safely.
    Lovely little games room.
    Lots of picnic benches and firepits to use.
    Good location for Frome and other local attractions.
    The food made onsite was really excellent - homemade burgers, pizza, rotisserie chicken etc, exceptional quality.
    Great value
    We plan on returning with more family and friends

    Disliked: 

    The road is audible from the campsite - but don't let that put you off, its far enough away not to spoil the experience at all.

Local attractions

Work up an appetite for the next meal tackling the mountain bike trails at Windhill Bike Park or seeking out one of the circular walking trails in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; both are about 10 minutes away by car.

If you’d like your walks to take in pretty gardens and historic buildings, head to Nunney Castle (five minutes’ drive), The Walled Garden at Mells (10 minutes) or Stourhead National Trust property (15 minutes). Bath’s half an hour away for urban strolls with a Roman tinge, and fishing is 15 minutes away at Shearwater Lake for those who need a bit of a rest.

You’ll easily fill a day over at Longleat (15 minutes away), driving the safari trails, visiting all the different animal areas, touring the house and pottering through the pleasure gardens. The famed caves and kid-friendly attractions at Wookey Hole are about half an hour away.

Must see

  • Longleat (2.7 miles)
