The Den and Orchard: Visitor image of grass tent pitch

General

  • Family-friendly site in a rural spot three miles from Frome
  • A 15-minute drive from Longleat House and Longleat Safari Park
  • Firepits and games room on site, plus takeaway for meals and drinks

What are you going to want for dinner on your Somerset break? Perhaps the fickle British climate will bless you with barbecue weather… or it’s possible you’ll feel like lazing around with a tasty takeaway…

Frankly, who knows what your future self will be feeling like, so it’s a crafty move to grab a spot at The Den and Orchard, where both are equally easy options. And that’s because this family-friendly site happens to have its own fab takeaway right on site (open evenings from Thursday to Saturday).

The food offerings here are tempting indeed: get set for a menu of burgers, pizzas, main meals and a range of drinks, all of which should contribute to a lovely laidback evening Frugal types and those planning a bit of outdoor cheffing can acquire essentials at the supermarkets in Frome, three miles away.

Firepits and chimeneas have been set up around the site for cooking and flame gazing; there’s also a washing-up area and a wooden toilet block with gents’ and ladies’ toilets and showers. A games room (with darts, table football and table tennis) is on hand too, for damp evenings and general entertainment.

The Den and Orchard is on the edge of Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there are plenty of walks nearby to help you work up an appetite. Other days out nearby include fishing, mountain biking, visits to National Trust properties and the excellent Longleat Safari Park.

  • Liked: 

    The sitte was well layed out and provision of fridge, mircrowave and washing facilities was great. There was even an electric kettle that was available for use. The Showers were clean and tempreture was adjustable and flow was good. Games room was well equipped and stocked well with spares!! Fire pits were available and wood was able to be bought at the reception area if you didn't bring your own. The takeaway for Fridays and Saturdays gave a good variation and it was all well cooked and presented. The black and blue burger I had was one of the best burgers i'd ever had. All in all a very good experience.

    Disliked: 

    A little road noise as quite close to main road.

    Fantastic owner was so welcoming and friendly. Facilities are great, can't fault them. Lovely sheltered little site, with a great atmosphere. You can buy takeaway on-site at the weekends, and a little shop with essentials. Fire pits provided. Great games room. We had a fabulous time.

    Disliked: 

    Really not much to fault at this lovely site but if you really want to know...
    Sheltered site = no view as it's surrounded by a lovely hedgerow - no biggie unless you like to watch the sun go down!
    Also a bit of traffic noise from the road nearby.

    Perfect little sheppards hut, just what we needed for two nights away. The facilities were great and the hut itself included all things needed for a bit of outdoor cooking. A great place to stay with friendly and helpful owners.

Bath’s half an hour away for urban strolls with a Roman tinge, and fishing is 15 minutes away at Shearwater Lake for those who need a bit of a rest.

You’ll easily fill a day over at Longleat (15 minutes away), driving the safari trails, visiting all the different animal areas, touring the house and pottering through the pleasure gardens. The famed caves and kid-friendly attractions at Wookey Hole are about half an hour away.
