Somerset Reindeer Ranch: Pitching field

General

  • Reindeer ranch and white-horse farm with an enchanted garden
  • A five-minute drive from Yeovil and 10 minutes from Montacute
  • Barbecue hut; plenty of places to walk around the site

If you’re the type of person who starts counting down to next Christmas on December 26th, you might very well be interested in bringing a bit of the yuletide season into your summer break with a stay at Somerset Reindeer Ranch.

This farm is home to a selection of Santa’s fave animals, plus it has a ‘unicorn’ for the kids to meet (you'll need to arrange this in advance though, to make sure it's not, ahem, out spreading magic elsewhere). Other activities that can be booked on arrival include My Little Pony, Peppa Pig and mermaid experiences for the kids and a more grownup luxury rolltop hot bath experience with rose petals and a glass of prosecco.

Stroll through the wide open spaces at the family-run park in search of Dasher, Blitzen and co, then settle in at the seating areas in the enchanted garden for picnics next to the firepit; there’s also a fancy barbecue hut for meals undercover should the weather be more Christmassy than summery (this can be booked separately). Summer vibes certainly prevail at the site's bar – it sells chilled beers and ciders or smooth spirits (and fruit juices or milkshakes for the kids).

Here to explore the countryside as well as the site’s lush grounds? The park is in prime position for touring Somerset and a couple of other counties as it’s five minutes’ drive from Yeovil and around half an hour from the Dorset and East Devon Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The site limits numbers, so guests will have a little pocket of isolation to themselves when staying here, and there are also ample spots to leave your car.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

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

Minimum spacing of 5 metres between pitches.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Guests must bring their own duvets, pillows, sheets and towels when staying in rental accommodation. You will not be allowed to stay if you do not bring these items.

Protective masks must be worn at all times in common areas.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Electric vehicles are welcome but will incur a £20 overnight fee and guests must provide their own charging equipment.

    Very small number of pitches (5) made it feel very intimate, especially in the evening when everyone had their camp fires going and the lights came on. Friendly owners and animals. Clean facilities and surroundings. Plentiful hot water. Very secure and safe.

    Disliked: 

    Road noise is quite noticeable which is a shame, but didn't really affect us. Very expensive activities - I would be inclined to do it if they were not so dear. Lots of spiders to share a shower with!! Difficult to find with poor signage from main road. Swing in fairy garden not really useable.

    This is a fabulous campsite with very welcoming, friendly owners. The showers and toilets are always kept clean, and there is a bar area selling alcohol! The pitches are very spacious and the animals were so much fun to be around, our 8 year old absolutely loved it. She did the bunny experience and it made her day. Just roaming around you can see the reindeer, emus, horses, turkey, chickens, skunks and the super friendly sphinx cats and Marley the pug, who our daughter absolutely loved. A fire pit is included, wood is £5 for a very generous bag. There is no wifi but 4G works fine. I would not hesitate to recommend this campsite and we will definitely be returning.

    Lovely views
    Smaller site with a good ratio of toilets and showers.
    Showers are clean & there is no limit in time, no 20p etc.
    Animal experiences (paid optional extra)
    Secure site so you can let the little people explore
    A great site if you like something a little quirky & less ‘mainstream’.
    Good size pitch

    Everything!!! From the beautiful grounds to Sarah and Dave!
    Our daughter could not have had a better trip away. She loves all the friendly animals that she could pet and love. Her favourite was waking up and seeing all of the horses right out of our camper window! And waiting for the fairies to visit.
    The food that was available was delicious and fresh. The cocktails were also to die for!!! With the cutest bar, we loved it!
    The little spots that are spotted around are absolutely beautiful and we loved being in such a fun and magical place.
    The showers and toilets were spotless!!
    The personalised service from the hosts was just exceptional, made it feel like home whilst we were there. We are already planning our next visit.

Local attractions

Dotted with manors galore, the landscape around this farm is typically English in style. Mosey over to Montacute (10 minutes’ drive) to stare at a striking Elizabethan house set among lush grounds you might recognise from films like Sense & Sensibility, and toddle off to the 20th-century Arts and Crafts-era Tintinhull Garden (10 minutes) too.

There are plenty more attractions to amble towards in the local area as well, like the Fleet Air Arm Museum’s displays of military aircraft, aero engines and Royal Navy ships, the National Trust’s Palladian-style Stourhead estate (25 minutes) and the stunning scenery of Forde Abbey and Gardens (30 minutes).

The nature is a little wilder around Sutton Bingham Reservoir, which is a top spot for fishing, sailing or strolls (15 minutes), and in the woodlands, glades, ramparts and hamstone memorials of Ham Hill Country Park (10 minutes). With connections to the age-old stories of King Arthur and the Holy Grail, the hilltop Glastonbury Tor feels steeped in legend (25 minutes).

See more spectacular Somerset scenery at Cheddar Gorge (50 minutes), dropping by the Wookey Hole caves for some kid-friendly subterranean adventures while in the area (40 minutes).
