General

  • Set among apple orchards with scrumpy cider available to buy on site
  • Easy access to Taunton by road or along the canal by foot or bike
  • Wild peacocks, ducks, geese, guinea fowls and chickens

A Somerset site with 'cider farm' in the name: how fizzing fantastic. And the means to buy scrumpy on site from two spacious apple orchards: how fizzing fantastic too.

Lashings of Henry's Farmhouse Scrumpy can be obtained at Tanpits Cider Farm Caravan and Camping Park – perhaps on arrival, to have on your very first day while firing up the barbecue for a post-sunset supper under the Somerset stars…?

Free range eggs are also available to buy for sizzling up for breakfast, a meal that might see you joined by the feathered and furred residents of this friendly and peaceful little farm site: wild peacocks, ducks, geese, guinea fowls and chickens all wander here, and you should see squirrels scampering about too.

The farm is right next to the historic Bridgwater and Taunton Canal, about 40 minutes' walk or 15 minutes by bike via the handsomely scenic towpath to the old town of Taunton. Happily tasty pub food and ales are about six minutes' stroll from base at the Merry Monk, and a retail centre with shops (and cinema) is within easy walking distance.

The farm facilities include hot showers, toilets, a launderette and a washing-up area. A play area is to hand for kids – possibly best to distract them while the grownups sort out a hefty purchase of Somerset farm scrumpy.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Fab Little Site , Spacious and Tranquil , Our Daughter loved the animals wandering around and we even managed to see a peacock with his feathers out . Shower blocks have been moderised and were spotlessly clean , plenty of hot water for washing up and showers , Washing machine and drier prices reasonable at £3 to wash and £1 to dry . Conviently Located to all you need , on our last but one day we even found a lovely hidden park which isnt obvious from the small roundabout near tanpits but is fab , has lots to do for the little ones even a sandpit , and better still only a 4 minute walk from the site :) We had a Fabulous Carvery at the Merry Monk Pub which was just a 10 minute walk away , nearest shop is about 8 minutes walk which is a well stocked Co op

    Lovely quiet sight, they have redone the showers and have opened up another toilet block. The free range birds are a delight to see. It's close to a lovely canal walk and a short drive to Taunton centre. Owners are friendly. No set pitches which worked wall as we were part of a group. This was our second year here and will go back next year.

    Campsite was clean and tidy. Showers and toilets clean at all times.

    Disliked: 

    When we arrived at site found out cash only, no mention of this before got there and dont carry cash on me, however staff were happy for us pitch then go get cash. Site surrounded by new estate being built so had to put up with noise of building works from 8am on wards, again no mention of this before we booked, were not even advised when arrived. Showers were like swimming pool showers where you push the button and then it goes off after a couple of minutes, not allowing the water to get hot.

    The peace and quiet. The peacocks wondering round, lived having them visit at breakfast.
    Plenty of space for the kids to play around.

    Disliked: 

    The only minor downside was that there was no freezer available for ice blocks but not a major problem at all

    Nice site close to M5, clean facilities close to local amenities.
    Pub and shop both close by. Rode our bikes into Taunton along the canal which is also close to the site entrance. Lots of wildlife roaming the park, including Peacocks and Pea hens. We would definitely stay again.
