Sunnyhill Park and Campsite: Ideal morning

General

  • Family-run site on a farm five minutes' drive from Wincanton
  • Glastonbury, Stonehenge and Longleat within 45 minutes' drive
  • Handy stopover for journeys on the A303

In days of yore, Wincanton was often used as a stopover town where folks would change horses, eat, drink and rest on their journeys between London and South West England. These days the town is an equally convenient stopping point: close to the A303 and roughly halfway between London and Exeter, this is a top location for exploring Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire.

The folks at Sunnyhill Park and Campsite are keen to uphold this tradition; their family’s been at this farm in Riding Gate (five minutes from Wincanton) for generations. Decent slumbers should be on the cards at the peaceful pitches, and there are free hot showers and firepits available to rent on site (plus a supply of logs for sale to keep the flames crackling, and a backdrop of views out over King Alfred's Tower). For seven weekends during the summer, the hay field also hosts music and storytelling events, all of which is included in the pitch price.

Eats can be acquired at nearby takeaways (which also deliver to site), restaurants, cafés and country pubs, and it’s less than a mile to the nearest pub for your evening pint(s). No promises on the fresh horses front though – they do have horses here (along with sheep, goats and chickens) but the owners would rather you leave them where you find them.

A mighty handy stopover it may be, but it’s also a fine place in its own right if you’ve got more time on your hands. Spend your Wincanton days cheering on the horses at the racecourse, visiting the Discworld Emporium or truffling out the tributes to Sir Terry Pratchett around the town centre. For more days out, Glastonbury, Longleat and Stonehenge are all within a 45-minute drive.

Wouldn't recommend the gypsy wagon to anyone with is current interior.27/06/2022

    Met by a lovely lady who was very helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately though after she left us to it we looked at the gypsy wagon more thoroughly.
    Looked lovely from the outside and was very impressed. Once inside the wagon it was not clean at all. The bed looked flea ridden and the flooring was mismatched with odd tiles/lino and dirty looking carpet. It did have a couple of nice touches with the crystal ball and the palmistry set. Nice log burner too. However over all it wasn't clean and looked very rundown with the furniture inside. The main no no for us was the bedding.

    We have seen much nicer gypsy wagons and felt this one needed gutting and refurbishing totally.

    The ladies toilets/showers seemed nice and clean although didn't use them.
    The men's weren't as nice but I suppose people think men don't mind as much.

    We left to go to a pub to eat as recommended by the lovely lady who greeted us and whilst there decided not to return . Unfortunately we had very limited phone signal so couldn't contact them.

    Since being home I've been told by the owner that someone phoned us . We did not receive a call. Didn't even show up as a missed call. This could have been because of our signal problem or just non existent.

From the manager...

This guest came checked in said they were happy with everything and then left to go to a local pub, not returning and staying in the wagon for the one night they had booked. We attempted to Co tact them as we were concerned......no response.....Not at anytime did she contact us with any issues and 5 days later she messaged asking for a refund....I had 5 e mails .......when I refused a refund she left this review

A different guest booked into the Gypsy wagon the following day through another booking agent and left the review below so if you are considering booking the wagon please do read both reviews and decide if she is for you

Thank you

This Gypsy Caravan is so gorgeous! It's really nicely decorated, and really cosy (in a good way!), particularly with the log fire burning in the evening! And it was lovely in the day time too - waking up in the morning and lying in bed, looking out of the little door through the decorative curtains to a sunny day, was very relaxing! We had a great hilltop view of the countryside too, from the spot the caravan was located in when we staying here. In our opinion, the photos on Air BnB [June 2022] don't quite do it justice - it's even better in person! :) As well as how nicely it is decorated, there were lots of lovely little extras that we loved: - the log burner, logs and saucepan to heat food/hot chocolate (so cosy in the evening) -the electric plugs (very useful to charge phones and other things like torches!!) - the water bottle tap (great idea, very helpful!) - provision of a gas stove - electric kettle and electric stove - all the little extras like tea and coffee pots made it so welcoming! The wider campsite site was great too - the showers and toilets were nicely decorated, and always very clean, bright and tidy. It was never crowded, and the general vibe of the place was calm and welcoming. All in all, the caravan is great fun to stay in and our stay here overall was super :)

  • Liked: 

    Stayed here last year in July and were astonished by the view from the field. This time decided to repeat the experience and did not regret at all as the field and surroundings were full of yellow flowers and surprisingly there were practically no other tents, so we spent a perfect day only surrounded by flowers, grass and birds. Even the storm and lightnings nearby at night did not ruin the perfect holidays.
    As for the farm, the owners are very friendly, all facilities needed are in place (water, toilets, showers). A very good campsite for those looking for being closer to nature.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. Everything was even beyond expectations.

    The facilities let it down, no separate water tap that worked and the showers didn't work.

From the manager...

Hi
Really glad you liked it
Really sad you didn't talk to me before writing and scoring the site though

There is a cold water sink in the hay field and hose pipe
A cold and hot water sink in the shower block
A long hose connected to the outside wall of the shower block for filling any water containers .....if any of these taps didn't work why didn't you use the 24 -hour Tel number?
That said I accept there was a problem with water starvation to the shower block causing both the ladies showers to stop working

Sadly again this was not reported to staff and was only discovered on a routine check

Such a shame you didn't enjoy what we offer

Hi

Glad you liked the site, the aninals, view etc. And 8 out of 10 is great. I agree the shower block is a work in progress hopefully new external windows and external doors will vastly improve the exterior. As I am sure you saw I have started to put a new covered sink area in its side. Disappointed you thought the only sink was the cold water sink outside though? Because we have been letting people use the indoor kitchen inside the shower block that has hot and cold water a microwave a fridge cutlery kettle mugs and more. I can only think you weren't shown this as the staff believed you had your own sink?....thank you for saying you would come again please do, and hopefully see our progress as well as enjoying our special spot

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Devotees of Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books flock to Wincanton, not only to peruse the bits and bobs at the Discworld Emporium but also to hunt out the various tributes around the town; having been officially twinned with Ankh-Morpork, there are now several Discworld street names and a themed pub to be seen around the place.

Away from the fantasy world, real-life creatures can be seen in action at the racecourse (10 minutes’ drive) or on a drive through Longleat safari park (half an hour). If it’s motors that get you going, take the 15-minute drive to the Haynes Motor Museum instead.

Those with a sense of the mystic may like to peruse the famed slabs of Stonehenge (35 minutes) or head to Glastonbury Tor (45 minutes) to consider the legends that surround the ancient site. Less shrouded in mystery but still mighty pretty for a wander are the house and gorgeous gardens at National Trust-owned Stourhead (15 minutes).

Must see

  • Stourhead House and Garden (3.9 miles)
  • Haynes International Motor Museum (7.9 miles)
  • Longleat (9.4 miles)
