General

  • Peaceful camping field with year-round facilities
  • National Trust and English Heritage properties close by
  • Enjoyable 20-minute walk to Ham Hill

Yeooo, check out this well-connected Somerset pub site... The Masons Arms is in the good-looking hamstone village of Odcombe near Yeovil, surrounded by topping walking trails – the 20-minute hike up Ham Hill is thoroughly recommended just to start strolls off.

The Arms is close to many Somerset attractions including National Trust and English Heritage properties, but is set peacefully well away from the main road. And as it's a pub site, dinner and drinks in the Arms each evening are also thoroughly recommended – no fights needed about who's going to drive home...

Facilities at the Masons Arms include a modern unisex amenities block with two toilets, two showers, three sinks, a washing-up area, a hairdryer, an iron and an ironing board.

Please note

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

Unfortunately due to access issues we no longer accept caravans. Motorhomes, campervans and trailer tents are welcome and, of course, tents.

    Well maintained site with excellent amenities. Very clean. We arrived late in the evening and were shown to our pitch. We were made most welcome and were still able to avail ourselves of the bar facilities and the staff were cheerful and nothing was any bother to them.

    My first taste of luxury glamping I usually just stay in a tent !!!!! Very friendly staff, a really nice secluded site and I was surprised by the welcome pack which included few beers along with the usual coffee, tea & biscuits. Can't think of a single thing that was wrong with my stay.

A well presented gem of a campsite. Welcomed by Sam ... 24/06/2018

    A well presented gem of a campsite. Welcomed by Sam who was very friendly and professional. Our pitch was perfect in a very quite position with electrical hook up and fresh water close by. The showers and toilets were a short walk towards the pub which were very clean with washing up facilities for our cutlery.
    We had a table booked in the pub for our evening meal, the menu was extensive and our choice of food was an excellent standard which reflected in the price. There was a good selection of local ales for me to enjoy.
    Will definitely be returning in the near future and are very happy to recommend the Masons arms.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to report.

From the manager...

So please you enjoyed your stay and I will pass your comments on to Sam. Look forward to seeing you again!
