‘We raise you up… high above the Lev—els…’. Be tuneful seeing the sights from Bowdens Crest Caravan & Camping Park, way way high above the Somerset Levels and the ancient market town of Langport – take a squint at that sunset pic for starters…

Views from budget-friendly Bowdens Crest include said Levels and its moors, the Quantock and Blackdown Hills, the River Parrett and the Vale of Taunton Dene, stretching out towards Breddon Hill and Exmoor – over 30 miles of Somerset surroundings can be seen from here on a clear day, all the way to Minehead. The small town of Langport is about a mile and a half away and there's a play area on site, on the edge of nine and a half acres of natural woodland where the kids can burn off suitable amounts of energy to let the grownups crack open the wine at sunset.

The site is high up, set on white lias stone with an eight-inch soil top (rock pegs are recommended for tents; if you don’t have your own you can buy them in the site shop). Tent, tourer and motorhome pitches are in a spacious field with non-electric pitches in the centre and pitches with electric hook-up around the field’s edge, and site facilities include chemical disposal and a well-maintained loo and shower block with separate ladies’ and gents’ sections, a disabled/family shower room and a family bath and shower room.

Washing-up sinks with free hot water are also available, and the games/information room has books, board games, DVDs, pool tables, football tables, games machines and several sockets to charge phones and other equipment free of charge. The Mad Hatters Bar and Murphy’s Kitchen will fill grumbling times at breakfast, noon and dinner time, and the impressive menu will satisfy even the pickiest of customers. From veggie options and kids’ picks to hearty roasts and curry favourites to eat in and take away, the tricky part is just deciding which homemade grub to devour first. While you’re mulling over the menu, we suggest sipping on one of the local ciders or ales on offer and taking in the panoramic views of 30 miles of open countryside from the bar’s garden. On a clear day, you may just find it impossible to move yourself…

Open from 1 Jan to 31 Dec
