Bishops Lydeard Caravan and Camping Site: Excellent location for dog walkers

General

  • Two-acre site on a family-run smallholding in Bishops Lydeard
  • Five minutes' walk from West Somerset Railway steam trains
  • Rural site backed by woodland; two pubs within a few minutes' walk

If you like to arrive in style on your hols, this is certainly a place where you can do just that… Bishops Lydeard Caravan and Camping Site is one of those rare places where you can ride into town on a steam railway, thanks to the West Somerset Railway station a mere five minutes’ walk away.

Those planning to ride the rails at a later point, meanwhile, should be pleased to hear that access in a more conventional manner is also straightforward, as the A358 passes fairly nearby. Either way, this is a rather splendid spot with pitches spread across a two-acre field surrounded by protected woodland just on the edge of the village.

It’s all been set up in the grounds of the 18th-century Greenway House, a Grade II-listed building that was once part of the adjoining Sandhill Park estate. It’s now a family-run smallholding, so you’ll share the space with ducks, geese and chickens and there are more farm animals to spot in the surrounding fields.

As well as being a top spot for train enthusiasts and those in search of farm stays, this place also has much to offer walkers, cyclists and folk travelling with four-legged companions, thanks to the plethora of pathways in the surrounds. And it’s also rather handy that there are two fine pubs and a microbrewery within a few minutes’ walk…

Life on site is pretty simple, with just a few amenities set up in the form of portaloos, water taps and a chemical disposal point. Barbecues are permitted and there’s ice pack freezing available to keep provisions cool.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Easy to find site with a fairly level field. Very friendly owner and lots of chickens and geese on site. Some of the best dog walking we have found within walking distance of the site. Lots of EHU pods and pitches well spaced. One of the few sites we would revisit, which says a lot.

    Disliked: 

    Would have given this 5 stars if we hadn’t been woken way to early by all the cockerels lol but that’s the countryside for you!

This was our first time camping in our new campervan …18/10/2021

    This was our first time camping in our new campervan with our two dogs!

    The site was easy to find with our satnav. On arrival we were initially a little confused about where / how to check in, but once the site owner appeared he was very friendly and made us feel welcome and told us about local attractions, shops and pubs etc...

    There were only 3 pitches in use so we were able to find a secluded spot in the corner of the field, next to the wood. We were pretty much self contained so didn't use any toilet facilities etc. The site was tidy and there were bins to put our rubbish.

    This was a lovely place to stay and we will definitely return if we are in the area again. May thanks

    What a fabulous place to stay. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. The camping field was extremely safe for my 1 year old and it was the perfect place to stay for a relaxing, quiet couple of days. Loved seeing the animals in the next field and we even saw deer at night. Amazing to hear the cockerel in the morning as our wake up call. A hidden gem and would definitely recommend. Also only a stones throw away from the railway and brewery which are both well worth a visit. Thank you so much for such a pleasant stay.

    Not the fault of the campsite but internet signal is temperamental.

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

Start local with a stroll up to the village to browse the farm shop, the Quantock Brewery, the tea rooms and the little rural life museum within Bishops Lydeard Mill. Just outside the village (but certainly worth travelling a mile for) is a smart hotel where you can pick up day passes for the swimming pool, spa and nine-hole golf course.

If you need an excuse to book in for some pampering, perhaps a few long walks or bike rides would fit the bill? There are plenty of options in the nearby Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, around the Blackdown Hills AONB (20 minutes’ drive) or over in the Exmoor National Park (15 minutes).

And one mustn’t forget the coast – the South West Coast Path starts in Minehead (half an hour), and it’s got plenty of beachy activities too. A little inland from Minehead is the splendid Dunster Castle; other fab options for days out nearby might include horse riding (10 minutes from the site) or gentle strolls around Hestercombe House & Gardens (15 minutes).

Must see

  • Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (9.5 miles)
  • Clarks Village (20.6 miles)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (21.3 miles)
