Somerset camping… even the phrase sounds peaceful. Add in an orchard and – well, all is sorted for peaceful somerset stays. (And spectacular views too, of course.)
West Down Orchard Touring and Camping Park is a family-run site set deep in green Somerset countryside, in a 12-acre orchard with those spectacular views. This is the place to settle for rest, relaxation and splendid walks throughout the nearby farmland and countryside lanes; dogs are welcome on site too.
Pitches here drain well even in heavy rain, to suit stays in all weathers, and are generously sized with plenty of room around. The park has a big and up-to-date facilities block with separate ladies' and gents' areas and free hot showers, and a launderette with washing machine and tumble dryer.
The small on-site shop stocks daily essentials, a restaurant is just down the road and the local pub is a mile away.
