Allercott Farm: The bell tent in its enclosed area

General

  • Pop-up site with views across Exmoor and the Bristol Channel
  • A five-minute drive from Timberscombe and 10 from Dunster
  • Woodland and countryside walking trails leading straight from the park

Settle down in Somerset at Allercott Farm for a trip to a family-friendly pop-up site. With seven acres of green fields to explore, this is just the kind of spot that’s excellent for embracing the experience of all-natural stays. As if that wasn’t already enough, there’s also the fact that Timberscombe, a riverside village in Exmoor National Park, is a five-minute drive away.

Light a campfire and let the smaller travellers run free while you gaze over the cairn-topped summit of Dunkery Beacon and the Bristol Channel beyond. Make a note to bring binoculars – on a clear day, Wales’ Brecon Beacons can be seen on the horizon. A fence and hedge encircle the site, meaning that you won’t be worried about the kids straying too far.

If the views inspire you to get out and stroll, set off towards the southern edge of the farm, which has a marked woodland trail and access to a public footpath. There's also the Coleridge Way, about a mile up the road towards Wheddon Cross.

The facilities here include a portaloo, a cold tap and waste disposal bins, plus a hot shower. Well-behaved dogs with considerate owners are welcome; logs are available for purchase for those who plan on getting a fire on the go come nightfall. Those staying on Saturday nights can also treat themselves to a freshly baked wood-fired pizza on site.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

There is no reception on-site: on arrival please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Minimum spacing of 4 metres between pitches.

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

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    Disliked: 

    The lean back of the portaloos
    The walk to the pub - we couldn't find the footpath for certain, so headed back to camp, which was fine, but would have checked an OS map before coming if we'd known it was tricky.

    Extremely quiet, peaceful campsite with a view to the sea in some weather. Gorgeous place to wake up to when the sun is out, and lovely even when not. Liked being able to go on walks up and down the farm. Very good value compared to other wild sites.

Our break here was a fab experience.05/09/2021

  • Liked: 

    The view, the facilities, the set-up, and the general experience. Our family loved going for walks on the farm, and exploring the adjacent forest. Jasmine has thought of everything, and we highly recommend the pizza if you stay on a Saturday! We used the fire pit every night including a couple of bbqs. The tent was really clean and the double bed was very comfortable. The canopy covering the outdoor bench was extremely effective, and kept us dry when we had a rain shower. We did a day trip to Minehead, and on the way back we dropped in to see England’s tallest tree. We parked at Nutcomb Bottom and walked down to the tree (the parking is free and there is a trim trail for older kids). Highly recommended

    Very spacious campsite where you can park up next to your tent and pitch anywhere. It was very quite when we went, despite being a bank holiday weekend, but we loved it because of it. Basic amenities, but that's exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend it, and would come here again!

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

Dash into Dunster (10 minutes' drive) to stroll around its independent shops, or sip ales in one of its cosy traditional pubs. The place is also stuffed with history: the age-old Dunster Yarn Market and National Trust-run Dunster Castle are both well worth a visit, as is the 16th-century dovecote that’s tucked away behind the main street.

After perusing the above, you could set out from Dunster and walk to Dunster Beach in roughly 40 minutes, or drive down the coast to Minehead (20 minutes) for fish and chips by the sea, classic arcade amusements or steam train trips on the West Somerset Heritage Railway.

Outdoorsy types have lots of options too, including hiking to the top of Dunkery Beacon (15 minutes), taking in the scenery along the four-mile Porlock Woodland Walk (30 minutes), crossing the river Barle at Tarr Steps (25 minutes) or fishing for trout at Wimbleball Lake (20 minutes). The seaside villages of Lynton and Lynmouth (45 minutes) are also worth the journey, both as destinations in their own right and as starting points for a hike up to the gorgeous Valley of Rocks (50 minutes).

Must see

  • Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (19.6 miles)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (24.6 miles)
  • St Fagans: National History Museum (25.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Dunster Working Watermill (3.1 miles)
