Campsites in Somerset: scrumpy-stuffed spots to explore

When heading off to holiday parks and campsites in Somerset, delicious treats are in store. And we’re not just talking about the artisan-made cider and cheese up for grabs in this county. The scenery’s also rather scrumptious in the south-western section of England, with a swathe of seaside and rural landscapes to roam.

 

A little more under the radar than the nearby counties of Devon and Cornwall, Somerset is a prime place for a peaceful break. So with that in mind, here are the campsites you could have a hol at and the things to do in Somerset while on your trip. 

Campsites in Somerset to suit you and your holiday tastes

Pondering a stay at a campsite in Somerset near the beach? Make a break for Burnham-on-Sea and settle in on a towel for days on the sand – heaps of holiday parks for families are around this area, many offering options like static caravans and rental tents to keep your Somerset stay simple. Alternatively, wander to Weston-super-Mare and poke around the Victorian pier, antique shops and amusement arcades.

For the experience of wild camping in Somerset – but free from the fear of being chased out of a field by a farmer – look for off-the-beaten-path sites in remote locations or amid spectacular scenery.

If you’re hoping to sample all the scrumpy when in this county (a tough but admirable challenge to pursue), opt for an adults-only touring caravan site in Somerset near a taproom serving the strong stuff; some of the best are around Langport, Taunton and Sandford. You may also like to consider pitches in the grounds of country pubs, or picking somewhere with a rental tent or glamping option (wrestling with your tent post-pints = possibly not a great idea).

Or perhaps you fancy spending your break in nothing but your birthday suit? If so, have a gander at naturist campsites in Somerset for a hol in the countryside with like-minded folk.

Amenities to consider at campsites in Somerset

So you’ve got your heart set on a sojourn in Somerset but aren’t quite sure what facilities you’ll want once you get there? Here’s a handful to keep in mind when browsing – from functional options like pitches with electric hook-ups to swanky leisure amenities like saunas.

If you’re travelling as a family, keep an eye out for campsites in Somerset with a swimming pool for the nippers and a spa for the parents. Other excellent extras on hand often include restaurants, organised entertainment and well-stocked camping shops. 

For serene stays, settle in at a site with a fishing lake and sit quietly on the banks, rod in hand, as you wait for the carp or trout to bite. There are also campsites in Somerset in wildlife havens with animals like deer, badgers and rabbits to get a glimpse of.

Try to think about the practicalities too. For example, if you’re touring with a caravan, you’ll want to pick a park that accepts – and has ample room for – twin-axle vehicles.

Things to see and do while camping in Somerset

While the countryside is simply stunning in Somerset, the county is also known for its swish cities: Bath is one of the best urban attractions in the UK with its blend of Georgian and Roman and architecture, while the much smaller Wells punches above its weight when it comes to striking buildings in serene surrounds.

Bristol is England’s capital of cool – its artsy graffiti scene did spawn Banksy, after all – and hosts summertime fiestas like the famed hot-air balloon festivals, which draws tens of thousands of visitors in August every year.

There’s many a top town to visit in Somerset, too. Glastonbury isn’t just worth a wander when the festival is on – it’s a destination in its own right for its Wiccan shops and hippy-dippy vibes. Climb up the 520-foot Glastonbury Tor to St Michael’s Tower, a spot said to be built on top of mystical lei lines, in search of inner peace (or just to see the fab view over Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire).

Speaking of vistas, you’ll also get them in the excellent Exmoor National Park, the pretty Mendip Hills and at Cheddar Gorge, where walks are to be combined with peering at the caves of Wookey Hole and chomping on delectably sharp Cheddar in the town of the same name. 

If you’re not so mobile (or don’t fancy huffing and puffing your way uphill), saunter off to the Somerset Levels instead for wanders on flat ground.

Activities in and near campsites in Somerset

Somerset is a great spot for going gung ho on all sorts of adrenaline-spiking activities. Pick from campsites with river canoeing and kayaking in serene spots like the Blackdown and Quantock hills, or spend a hol hanging off a rock face at a climbing crag. Golf courses are all around as well if you’re keen on the green and the mountain biking paths in Somerset are sought after by cyclists.

There are also peaceful pursuits to try out, like horse riding, along with birdwatching at spots like the Wayford Woods, Sutton Bingham Reservoir and Bincombe Beeches LNR). Historical type? Browse for campsites in Somerset near battlefields and see the past come to life.

Sticking around south-western England for a while? We wouldn’t blame you. If you’re travelling long-term, or are able to extend your trip, have a look at campsites in Cornwall and Devon as well.
