General

  • Peaceful meadow on a Somerset alpaca farm
  • A 20-minute drive from the Quantock Hills; half an hour from Exmoor
  • Footpaths from site to local pubs

A fan of the furry alpaca kind and places for hiking, mountain biking and pony trekking? On Pickney Farm, you’ll plot down in a peaceful four-acre rural patch with a herd of alpacas for your neighbours and outdoor activities in the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty 20 minutes’ drive away - and the sounds of birds, horses and the odd tractor.

In the isolated hamlet of Pickney, 15 minutes’ drive from Taunton, this four-acre field is behind a small farmhouse with views of the Quantock and Blackdown hillsides and starry skies by night. Pitches are spacious and spaced out with access to a compost toilet, gas-powered hot shower, sink and natural washing products, plus a dishwashing area, fridge and freezer in the farmyard.

There’s also a footpath from the farm towards Kingston St Mary's pub or to Bishops Lydeard’s brewery and steam train (day trip to the coast, anyone?). For a more strenuous hike, you may follow a footpath to the Quantock Hills for views as far as Wales and Glastonbury too.

    Great little campsite situated close to the Quantocks hills and the town of Taunton.
    Only a few pitches so never going to feel busy.
    Great facilities with the option for a fire pit.
    Alpacas on site so can feed and stroke them.
    Owner is very friendly and helpful.
    No Wi-Fi but great 4g signal.
    Definitely stay again.

    I loved camping here! Such a beautiful spot and all very friendly and relaxed. A peaceful field with alpacas for neighbours and really clean loo/shower. I picked the site for its eco loo/shower and the fact that cars aren’t allowed in the field and also no dogs.
