General

  • Peaceful landscaped park near the Somerset/Devon border
  • Adults only
  • Excellent amenities including free showers, library and guest computer

Pitches divided by plants and trees to allow privacy, on pretty landscaped grounds with views of the surrounding hills, and on an adults-only site – have a peaceful and scenic stay at Waterrow Touring Park.

No stresses either when getting out to explore the southwest, as the park is in the Somerset village of Waterrow on the B3227, close to the Somerset/Devon border and a 30-minute drive from Exmoor. Are you a fishing fan? Several fishing lakes are nearby as well as fly fishing on the River Tone for experienced anglers.

If excellent amenities also make you feel restful, you'll likely like the Waterrow facilities of toilet and shower blocks set in a dry and modern barn, with underfloor heating, spacious shower cubicles and easily operated shower controls flowing out free hot water.

Also in the barn is an information area, library, guest computer, payphone, freezer, microwave, laundry area, washing-up sinks and – most welcome – a coffee machine.

    Layout of the site. all the pitches are angled in such a way that you don't appear to be directly facing another caravan.

    Beautiful setting, pitches well laid out and the owners were super friendly and helpful... Theres a enclosed area for the dogs so they can get off there leads and a stream where the dogs had a great time.. The site has amazing views and really peaceful loved every second of it.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing would be the showers as they are push button, so annoying when you have to keep pressing for water, but to be honest I can live with that as everything else was perfect!!!

    River walk, great scenery, tidy pitches, v clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Always wanted to use toilet/showers when closed from 11 - 12.30pm! There is another toilet to use and the facilities were always exceptionally clean. The site is close to the road on one side, if you're a light sleeper, but by no means a busy road.

    Was great for the dogs with the fenced exercise area and the lovely river next to it. Pitches were surrounded with hedges and trees for shade and privacy which was nice. Everything was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Local pub served amazing food.

    Disliked: 

    The internet connection was pretty bad, even just for browsing which was a shame at £2 per night.

Local attractions

This is a well-placed park for days out in Somerset, Devon, Exmoor and the Somerset countryside and coast as well as cultural times at historic houses, gardens and properties maintained by the National Trust.

In the more immediate area, several circular walks wind to and from Waterrow Touring Park, and both Blackdown Hills AONB and Wimbleball Lake walks are well under ten miles' drive.

Guests also have easy access to several fishing lakes nearby as well as somewhat more challenging casting off from the River Tone, where anglers compete to land chub, quality roach, bream, grayling and trout.

Free fishing is available on the Tone stretch between the top of French Weir to the end of the Market car park; also angle for bream at the River Huntspill, a short distance from Taunton on the other side of Bridgwater.

Several cycle routes are in the area too, such as the flat and easy 11 or so miles along the Grand Western Canal, part of the part of the West Country Way (NCN3) Cycle Route running from Padstow to Bristol.

If you're erring towards the more historic, try Taunton Castle, Coldharbour Mill, and the National Trust's Knightshayes Court and Killerton House.

Must see

  • Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (8.7 miles)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (16.2 miles)
  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (21.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Knightshayes Court (8.4 miles)
