General

  • Next to a family-oriented pub in Lydford-on-Fosse
  • Convenient for visiting Glastonbury, Bath and the Wookey Hole Caves
  • Pub serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and hosting live music

A pub – with beer garden – in Somerset: how smashing. And even more splendid, The Cross Keys Inn is about 10 miles from Glastonbury if you're in the south-west to see the Tor or get muddied up at the fest, and is niftily set for other top highlights like Bath, Wells and the Wookey Hole Caves, all under 10 miles away.

The pub is in the Somerset village of Lydford-on-Fosse, between Yeovil and Glastonbury. It has two bars, an open fire and wifi, and serves breakfasts, lunches and dinners as well as real ales. Live music events are occasionally hosted in the beer garden.

Facilities in the camping field include drinking water, a chemical disposal point, a recycling area, toilets and showers.
When you're off to explore the many tiptop highlights of Somerset and the south-west, the A303 is a quick three-minute drive away.

Ease of booking. Friendly contact from The Cross Keys staff. ... 24/08/2017

    Ease of booking. Friendly contact from The Cross Keys staff. Food was excellent. The pub was clean and very well laid out, really nice atmosphere.

    Disliked: 

    Food was a little overpriced compared with similar locations we have visited.
    Due to the size of our caravan we were offered a larger pitch which would have been ideal, however there was a bank across all the pitches which we were unable to reverse over and so had to park half on the pitch and half in the car park. The ground just requires levelling to resolve this issue.
    We still intend to book again for next year so these are small points and added purely to assist with improving facilities.

Well laid out and very well maintained site....to be recommended !! 23/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jan G. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    The grassy camping area was well laid out and level, with easy access through the pub car park for our motorhome. The facilities were as stated on the website, and again easy to access and use.
    The pub itself provided an excellent range of hot meals, which we all enjoyed.

    We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return to this pub camping site in the future.
    Also worth noting that this site is very central for visits to National trust properties in the area.

Directions


The site is just off the A37 between Yeovil and Shepton Mallet, close to Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Bath and West Showground.

Local attractions

It's under 10 miles to some excellent and famed Somerset destinations, including Glastonbury Tor and Abbey (six miles), the teeny city of Wells (eight miles) and the fably spooky Wookey Hole Caves (nine miles).

You'll also be a speedy five miles from the huge collection of military and civilian craft at Ilchester's Fleet Air Arm Museum, which houses the biggest naval aviation collection of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft in Europe, and nine from the 400 or so cars and motorbikes at Sparkford's Haynes International Motor Museum. This latter takes family fun most seriously, and lays on a range of activities for the under-fours, ages four to 12, and teens.

The Royal Bath and West Showground is seven miles away at Shepton Mallet: head here for events and shows, flea markets, and the famed Royal Bath & West Show, highlighting the best of British farming, culture and produce. Toddle along to it if you're around in late May/early June, to see the British Cider Championships and the British Cheese Awards, and sample as much produce as poss from 125 food producers.

And then there's Bath, the famed and handsome city that's one of only three in Britain to have UNESCO World Heritage status (Liverpool and Edinburgh are the others, but of course you knew that…). Drive the 20 or so miles to here for sights such as The Roman Baths complex, Bath Abbey and the Jane Austen Centre.

Must see

  • Haynes International Motor Museum (2.8 miles)
  • Fleet Air Arm Museum (4.3 miles)
  • Glastonbury Tor (6.6 miles)
