General

  • Rural Somerset site five minutes' drive from central Yeovil
  • Handy stopover point on journeys to Devon or Cornwall
  • Next door to a traditional inn with top-quality food and a lake

It will, of course, rather depend on your starting point and final destination. But if you’re Devon- or Cornwall-bound on the A303 it’s quite possible that The Halfway Caravan and Camping Park will indeed offer a handy stopover roughly halfway through the journey.

There’s rather more to this small friendly Somerset site than simply a place to flop for the night though... For starters, fab views can be had over the surrounding fields and farmland, and there's easy access to a whole bunch of townie amenities five minutes' drive away in Yeovil. On top of that, it’s surely always a bonus to note that there’s an inn next door – especially when it happens to be one that serves up top-notch grub and has a lakeside trail for post-drive leg-stretching.

It's worth resisting the urge to get straight back on the road here, as the park is in a tiptop location for days out. Those who settle in for several days can hit Weymouth's beach, Stourhead's gardens, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole with a leisurely drive of an hour or so, or take to local trails for rural rambles or rides.

Between day trips, there's space on site for kids and dogs to have a bit of a run about while the grownups put their feet up, pour a glass of something (ideally something local, this being cider country) and gently stoke the barbecue coals.

    Disliked: 

    Windows in toilets were NOT frosted
    Not much space to manoeuvre car and caravan
    The advert said paying £1 for a shower, but no mention of paying for hot water
    The entrance was hidden, as was the sign

From the manager...

Slightly befuddled at your review but congratulations for finding something to complain about that no one else has - frosted windows! Not sure who you worry will be peeking in as the windows are rather high but everyone has their little peeves I suppose. Oh and the entrance is quite clearly marked, not hidden, and the sign is in plain view, everyone finds their way to us without an issue.
Good luck next summer with your camping adventures, I wonder who will be the lucky recipient of your company. :)

    hot shower ,only one other camper quirky place to stay as the 2 pub staff dont want anything to do with camping site( although the pub where you get shower tokens and check in,)the bar staff made a concerted effort to be very abrupt when we first arrived and tried to check in ,and we were thinking what the hell!but they became more friendly later,as we ate at the pub..as the night progressed and by end of night we really liked them !and were amused by there hostile attitude to any campers😄would go back just to be entertained by watching those feisty ladies!

    Wonderful site, clean and tidy. We stayed twice, on our way to and way back from Cornwall. Mark and Isabella are superstars and helped me to sort an electrical issue with my van. They are so laid back and kind and made my holiday really special. I cannot thank them enough.

Local attractions

The surrounds here are the kind of classic English scenery that gets folk all misty-eyed. If you're looking for a pretty place to potter, make for Montacute 10 minutes’ drive away: its streets have featured in several films including Sense & Sensibility and Elizabeth.

Scenic strolls are in good supply around here: the National Trust’s stunning Stourhead estate is 25 minutes away by car, and the gorgeous grounds of Forde Abbey and Gardens are half an hour away. For a side order of legend and myth as you meander, take a tour of Glastonbury Tor (25 minutes), said to have links with King Arthur and the Holy Grail.

There’s more stunning natural scenery to be seen on a visit to Cheddar Gorge (50 minutes) or by delving into the showcaves at Wookey Hole (40 minutes). Meanwhile, those with other interests may like to take flight to Fleet Air Arm Museum (10 minutes), meet the menagerie at Ferne Animal Sanctuary (half an hour) or pack their bucket and spade for a day spent on the sands of Weymouth (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Montacute House (2.4 miles)
  • Fleet Air Arm Museum (3.2 miles)
  • Haynes International Motor Museum (6.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Tintinhull Garden (1.8 miles)
