The Cross Keys Inn: Camping field next to the pub

General

  • Touring pitches next to a family pub in Lydford-on-Fosse, Somerset
  • A 25-minute drive to Glastonbury, half an hour to Wookey Hole Caves
  • Pub serves lunch and dinner and hosts live-music events

After a touring site right next to a family-friendly pub in Somerset? Look no further than the friendly and quiet The Cross Keys Inn, which makes a handy base for visiting Glastonbury (25 minutes’ drive) if you’re needing a base for the famous music festival.

The pub is in the Somerset village of Lydford-on-Fosse, between Yeovil (20 minutes) and Glastonbury. It has two bars, an open fire and a wifi connection, and serves lunches and dinners (please call to book in advance) as well as real Somerset ales and ciders. Live-music events are occasionally hosted in the function room, which opens out onto the beer garden.

The pitches are a short distance from the pub, so although there may be more noise than usual during live events, staff are more than happy to allocate a quieter pitch for you on request.

Facilities on the camping field include drinking water, a chemical disposal point, a recycling area, loos and showers.

When you’re off to explore the many highlights of Somerset and the south-west, the main A303 is a handy three-minute drive away.

Please note

This is a quiet site: no music is allowed.

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

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Although this is now an over-18 site, there may be a chance of under-18 guests due to historical bookings which are being honoured.

Live music events are occasionally hosted in the Cross Keys function room, which opens out onto the beer garden.

    Disliked: 

    I’m afraid I wasn’t happy with the pitch as we had a caravan not really suitable..We had to use our water barrel which is a nuisance to keep refilling up…Showers and toilets are in the car park no real privacy..Lighting not good for the night times..

    Ideally located adults only site, in a small village, at the rear of a truly great pub. Within easy reach of Glastonbury, Well, Street, Yeovil and Montacute House. Shower block basic, but functional. Large reasonably level grass electric pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Slight niggle really; Only one toilet per gender is reserved for campers. Public toilets are also available, but not as we serviced.
