This campground/park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Peaceful lakeside site in landscaped Victorian surrounds
  • A 10-minute drive from Frome; 20 minutes from Bradford on Avon
  • Regular food and drink events and outdoor activities

Make tracks to Marston Park for some much-needed relaxation time on an artsy Somerset site with spectacular waterside views. Here you'll be able to fully tune in to the sounds of nature while indulging in gourmet food, sipping on craft ales and appreciating art in the open air.

The site is set on a spectacular Victorian estate with a lake, woodland and rolling parkland to spend your days tramping through. Natural explores in the local area are also within easy reach, as Marston Park is just outside Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a short drive from other scenic spots like the Kennet and Avon Canal.

Marston Park's special programme of leisure activities focuses on boosting these already-chilled vibes, with group yoga, craft classes and site-organised strolls on the cards. Creative types heading here can also arrange access to an all-canvas studio space or pick from a programme of intimate performances and small-scale exhibits.

For 2022, each tent will also have its own private glowing garden of light, installed by internationally acclaimed visual artist Bruce Munro.

Fine food and drink is regularly available for sampling at tasting sessions organised at the pop-up bar, courtesy of the food trucks that regularly drop by to serve up lakeside bites. Fresh local produce is also sold here. Further food options can be sorted in Frome (10 minutes' drive) or at the nearest pub (10 minutes' walk).

Expensive, but worth a treat for a night or two if the weather is good11/07/2022

  • Bell tent (deluxe)

  • Liked: 

    Pool & hot tub great, Pizza were good and lovely setting next to the lake.

    Tents are super cool and comfortable. Clean toilets and best showers at a campsite so far. Nice light show in the evening.

    Great place to sit and relax and decent music in the evening.

    Disliked: 

    Breakfast was super expensive - £8.50 for kids breakfast which included one croissant and a bottle of apple juice.

    Adults was £15 and I got the same as the kids plus a coffee and yogurt/muesli.

    I had ordered the breakfast the previous night, but didn't arrive until after 8.30am. Kids not too happy.

    The site is beautiful the lights and the vintage feel was just perfect.
    The staff were lovely.
    Toilets and showers were immaculate.

    Disliked: 

    The food; No variety it was expensive for what it was and how it tasted, we found a local takeaway after £24 for 2 Hotdogs.
    The ground in the tent was uneven and the path was unfinished down to our tent so was muddy!!
    No fairy lights in the tent like pictured.
    Think some kind of delivery option to your tent would be amazing for drinks or wood fired pizza something quick but tasty! (especially hot drinks in the morning)
    It was lovely just think some finishing touches would make it worth the price.

Disappointing! Big on ideas but falls short in their execution.07/06/2021

  • Liked: 

    My daughter liked the use of a guitar and art materials provided in the tent. The street food was tasty. The staff were friendly.

    Disliked: 

    There was a lack of thought and attention that went into the set up of the tents. It felt like they had been overbooked and were scrambling round to pitch as many tents as possible. As a result, our tent had not been properly set up. The wood burner was in pieces on the floor. There was a dead branch in the middle of the tent, where they presumably intended to hang the mirror, but this too was on the floor. The tent was pitched at the far end of the site, there had been no attempt to flatten the ground, so there were significant undulations in the floor, nor even the removal of stinging nettles right at the entrance of the tent (where it zipped up); so our daughter was stung. The closest loo block only had one working loo; the two showers were chained shut. Everything was damp the next morning, but as we had no working wood burner, we were just cold and uncomfortable!

    Woodland location by the lake, safe family environment, set up of the camp, lovely communal eating and drinking area, good food from the visiting street food vans, nice toilets and showers, ambience and lighting, the ducks, close to Frome and Stourhead National Trust property

    Disliked: 

    No cooking facilities for barbecue or self catering combined with pricey food, no mat directly outside the tent so stepping into mud when wet, too many tents too close together

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

Embark on a self-driven safari at Longleat (15 minutes' drive), the world-famous Wiltshire wildlife park where tigers, lions and wolves can be seen skulking between the trees. (Friendlier beasts like giraffes and lemurs are also on display.) To be in with a chance of seeing native critters like grey herons, otters and kingfishers, take your tribe for a wildlife stake-out down at Rodden Nature Reserve (10 minutes).

Some of southern England's finest aristo architecture can be admired in posh nearby spots like Bath's 18th-century Royal Crescent (30 minutes) and Stourhead (15 minutes), a National Trust-managed Palladian palace with exceptional landscaped grounds.

The West Country may be a far cry from big-city smog and traffic, but it's a fair deal edgier than this green and grassy landscape would initially suggest. Few places beat Bruton (20 minutes) in terms of cool: this handsome Somerset village is full of cutting-edge designers, lifestyle shops, art galleries and innovative eateries like At the Chapel, a bakery housed in a Grade-II listed former church.

Free spirits who aren't too bothered by Instagrammable bites may well prefer trips to hippy haunts like Glastonbury Tor (30 minutes) or Avebury (50 minutes).

Must see

  • Longleat (3.9 kilometres)
  • Stourhead House and Garden (10.4 kilometres)
  • Prior Park Landscape Garden (18.3 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Stourhead (10.7 kilometres)
