Tucker's Grave Inn and Campsite: Beer garden in the sun

General

  • Wild camping alongside one of the oldest cider pubs in Somerset
  • Regular live music and events in the barn
  • Large sheltered field for wild camping two minutes' walk from the pub

Cider connoisseurs: you’ll find this site most sweet indeed. Tucker's Grave Inn is a traditional cider pub that’s one of the oldest in Somerset: its doors first opened to thirsty travellers over 200 years ago…

The pub these days has been unchanged for over a century: no TVs, flashing fruit machines or noisy jukeboxes here, just a friendly and lively vibe, a community of locals and visitors… and a roaring open fire to curl up in front of. ‘A proper pub’, ‘timeless excellence’ and ‘probably the best pub ever’ are a sample of guest views on this lovely old inn… and, as is fitting for such an old place, you might spy a cat snoozing gently on the windowsill too…

Tipple options at Tucker's include Butcombe Original straight from the barrel, and a nicely rounded range of traditional ciders such as Cheddar Valley, Black Rat, Rich's and Pheasant Plucker… or you might opt for Mallets sparkling cider, beer… or tea/coffee if you prefer your beverages non-boozy. Whatever you pick, fortify yourself for evenings, as there's regular live music in the barn.

Outside, there’s a beer garden with spectacular Somerset views as well as a firepit to cosy around over an evening pint, and the inn also has a skittle alley with a woodburning stove. You can play shove ha’penny in the Tap Room too (yes, kids do regularly become fans of this rather quickly).

Camping is in a large sheltered field a nifty two-minute totter from the pub, three and a half miles from the village of Faulkland and about 25 minutes' drive from Bath. There's water access and the site has access to toilets and showers.

Please note

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

If reception is closed on arrival: please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

    The old pub. There was nothing else to like. We went midweek so no entertainment ,cafe or burger bar open. This should be billed as a weekend venue as that's the only time anything is open. We were that bored, we left a day early.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing open to dislike.

Without a doubt, this is the best camp site I have ever stayed in.08/01/2022

    Absolutely fantastic campsite. The facilities are great and the music was brilliant. It really is a highlight to be able to enjoy a night of drinking and music and then stumble back to the tent.

    The showers and toilets are brand new, perfectly situated, and in great condition. There are also portaloos around the campsite.

    What many do not know is that the pub here (Tucker's Grave Inn) is unique in being one of only a dozen pubs without a bar counter. It is very old and unique. We absolutely loved this gem!

    There is a cafe, which serves hot and cold food and beer (lager and IPA), and cider too (brewed on site). They serve snacks too and even have gluten free cake. The shop sells the basics. You can eat in or take it back to your camp. There is a small deposit to pay for the beer cups which you are refunded upon return.

    There is an amazing burger van that serves hot food too - including breakfast. Thus just made it even better!

    We can't wait to come back!

    What a fabulous stay as always. Live music, lovely surroundings, coffee shop, food vendors and a fun atmosphere. Came for my birthday weekend and it has been one of the best.

    Disliked: 

    Shower block is ‘work in progress’ and not an oversight so although I would have liked a shower over the weekend, the positives outweigh the current lack of showers - look forward to seeing them next time as we will definitely be back.

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

There are plentiful ways to take in the scenic surrounds while working up a thirst for your evening pint: saddle up for horse or pony treks 10 minutes’ drive away, or head to Bradford-on-Avon to don a captain's hat and navigate a barge through local waterways. If you'd rather just take a walk, a fine place is Westbury (25 minutes), where you can wander off in search of its 55-metre White Horse, carved into the chalk hills.

More leisurely days out might take you for a fragrant bimble among the blooms of Somerset Lavender (five minutes' drive) or along the pretty paths at Prior Park Landscape Gardens (15 minutes). Best be allocating a whole day to a trip to Longleat (20 minutes) too, especially if you've got the small sorts in tow; there’s a huge collection of wild beasts to see on the safari trails, and also some rather gorgeous gardens to stroll through.

Town times may well feature on your schedule too: you can drive to Bath in around 25 minutes, or take in Wells (35 minutes), Glastonbury (45 minutes) or Bristol (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Prior Park Landscape Garden (7.8 kilometers)
  • American Museum in Britain (9.5 kilometers)
  • Sally Lunn's Historic Eating House & Museum (9.6 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Westwood Manor (7.1 kilometers)
