West Down Orchard Touring and Camping Park: Grass pitches overlooking the apple orchards

General

  • In a rural peaceful area with easy access to shops and local pubs
  • Orchard walks with stunning views of Somerset
  • In a 12-acre orchard; restaurant 200 yards away and pub within a mile

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 large 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.

Please note

No bachelor/bachelorette parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Electricity is metered on site at £0.40 per kWh and must be paid at checkout.
