General

Exclusively for adults, The Old Oaks Touring Park won AA Best Campsite in the UK in 2013. We have an unrivalled reputation for our spotlessly clean facilities, excellent customer service, friendly wardens, beautiful grounds and yummy homemade cakes.

Set in tranquil and unspoilt countryside with panoramic views of the Mendip Hills and surrounding area, our adults only five-star park offers huge landscaped pitches all backing onto mature hedges separated by trees or shrubs, creating a sense of privacy.

There are two amenity blocks with plenty of individual private shower rooms. Our shower block, completed in 2012, has been described as being better than a five-star hotel!

Also provided are ample dishwashing sinks, freezer facilities for ice packs (no charge) and laundry rooms, and free use of microwaves. Free wifi throughout the park is also provided.

The shop/off-licence carries a good range of locally sourced groceries, our own free range eggs and home-reared beef and lamb, wine and beer - and during the main season we will also collect newspapers and freshly baked bread for you (if ordered). Fresh home-baked cakes are available at busier times. We also stock Calor and Camping Gaz and offer a freezer pack hire service.

Our half-acre fishing pond is well stocked with carp, roach and tench. Win a free break in our fishing competitions.

We plant an extensive number of native trees, shrubs and hedging to help to create a peaceful, green sanctuary for people and attract wildlife including foxes, badges and birds. The park also has a Victorian-style reed bed to filter waste water from the amenity block in a natural, chemical free way which provides an excellent habitat for wildlife.

Excellent recycling facilities exist all around the park. Guests are actively encouraged to recycle as much as possible.

We are a perfect location for walking and cycling (free walking guides): bikes can be hired on site, and you can even borrow a bird feeder and bat detector!

Gates locked - the park is closed to all vehicles between 11.15pm - 7.30am. This is for security reasons and also to keep noise levels down early in the morning and late at night.
