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.

Excellent quiet site with clean & warm facilities. 21/02/2018

    What a wonderful place! Staff were friendly and helpful. Bar served good food and drink and had a cosy atmosphere. Camping facilities were great. Toilet and shower block super clean and warm with plenty of hot water. A dish washing sink indoors with washing up liquid supplied and an iron and ironing board to use. Site was quiet and in a picturesque little village. Plenty of walks nearby and details of these printed on cards to borrow. All round 5 star stay, we will return.

    Disliked: 

    There was nothing to dislike about this site. Absolutely everything had been thought of and catered for.

    This is a very clean and peaceful site with excellent facilities. We have stayed before and have always been pleased we did so. It has the added bonus of being situated in the grounds of the Masons Arms were the food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful.

    I highly recommend this site

    Shower button had to be pressed every few seconds. Only a minor gripe.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will ask the plumber to have a look at the shower timer as it should stay on longer than that. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

    We found the Mason arms easy to get to. very clean and tidy and staff very helpful. Showers could have done with a partition in them to help keep things dry But it's just my opinion. They were lovely and hot and clean. Evening meal in the Mason we had a starter and main meal which was lovely, the guy serving us was a good laugh and chatty. Would we stay again Yes we would.

    Disliked: 

    The sun refused to shine but not the Mason arms fault.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely comments and I suspect the chap serving you was dave our manager, he does love his job and loves to entertain!

Excellent small, quiet,level site. 01/10/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Ann C. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent or motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We can recommend this site wholeheartedly. The site is behind the pub so within a very short walk you can get something to eat and drink. It is situated in a village a short distance outside Yeovil so you have the convenience of a quiet village setting with the conveniences offered by a town. The site is small, quiet and dark at night to guarantee a good nights sleep. A very clean and well cared for site.
