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.

    Plenty of space to pitch the tents and lovely setting in the Apple orchard. Good facilities with showers, toilets and washing up room. Pub only a 5-10 minute walk away which was useful for when it rained.

    Disliked: 

    One toilet block we didn't use as there was no soap left as they weren't cleaned during our stay. Not that much to do within walking distance.

    This is a lovely site with nice large pitches. We were able to choose our own pitch when we arrived. The owner is very friendly and there is the option of paying £5 to stay for the last afternoon. Toilets are clean and welcoming. Grass is firm and in excellent condition. The simple playground is a nice bonus.

    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
