- Flat and grassy five-acre site deep in the Somerset Levels
- A 15-minute drive from Taunton; Barrington Court 20 minutes
- Dog-friendly site with easy access from the A378
This spacious site is such a super spot that you may well want it all to yourself. As it happens, if you plump for these flat and grassy 5 Acres, you and your gang will have exclusive rights to roam, pitch up and relax here for the duration of your stay.
As you'd expect from a site with such ample acreage, there's plenty of space for parking, so it's simple to hire the place out for family shindigs or group get-togethers. Folks heading here are welcome to either bring their own toilet or have a chat with the site staff, who can sort out portaloo hire. They're also able to hire out tables, chairs and take you for tours around a secret garden where there's a summerhouse and fountain to admire.
The surrounding Somerset Levels aren’t just out in the sticks – they also produce them. Willow cane has been cultivated the traditional way in this part of the county for hundreds of years and can be seen growing within a mile of 5 Acres. The Levels are also a wildlife haven, making them an all-round top choice for country walks (with a well-behaved dog, if you've brought one).
Taunton town centre and its wide range of shops and supermarkets is a 15-minute drive away. The closest pub and coffee shop are five minutes away by road.

From the manager...
Thank you for your review. We want to make continual improvements to our accommodation and we will now provide citronella candles for guests to detract the midges (we do actively encourage nature to thrive in the garden). We have also found a flaw in the vent design of the custom-made toilet which has now been fixed.

First time in the West Country? Get your bearings at the Museum of Somerset (15 minutes' drive), a family-friendly local history exhibit housed in the grand surrounds of Taunton Castle. Other history-infused haunts, like National Trust-managed Barrington Court (20 minutes) and Coleridge's Cottage (40 minutes), are also pretty sure to help you get a feel for the place. Already a maven in all things southwestern? Skip the history lesson and get straight out for rambles in the Quantock Hills (20 minutes).
The coast is also within range, whether you opt to head north to the Bristol Channel for swims at Kilve beach (40 minutes) or a trip to Watchet arcade (40 minutes) or south to Lyme Regis (45 minutes) on Dorset's Jurassic Coast.
If you're looking to branch out from your common and garden holiday attractions, take a closer look at the traditional willow products on display at Coates English Willow Visitor Centre (10 minutes). More local produce can be inspected (and tasted) at promisingly named Sheppy's House of Cider (15 minutes), a well-established Somerset firm where you can analyse dry, medium and sweet varieties.
