Bobsfield Campsite

9.6

This campground/park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Family campsite on the Somerset Levels between Glastonbury and Street
  • Five minutes’ drive to Glastonbury Tor and the Chalice Well
  • Fresh veg and pop-up street food on site; shops five minutes’ drive

The owner of Bobsfield Campsite is rightly proud of its eco-credentials – and you'll soon see why at this low-impact site, which has a spectacular setting on the Somerset Levels. Surrounded by fruit trees, the level camping meadow is solar-powered and all the amenities have either been repurposed or recycled. This wonderfully laid-back site offers a chilled wild-camping environment so you can get back to the simple pleasures in life.

There’s a fabulous view of Glastonbury Tor from the site (without having to climb a tree or peek through a hedge) and in the other direction, you get amazing sunsets on clear days. The few pitches are well spread out over the site, so everybody gets the chance for a bit of privacy and seclusion.

There’s no electricity but there are eco-friendly solar lights dotted around the site. A biodigester takes care of waste, and the owner has installed swanky flushing toilets and a washing-up area, which also happens to be in prime position to watch the sun go down. Fresh seasonal salad and vegetable boxes are often available to buy from the site owner (yes – it’s Bob) and he also has plants for sale in a nursery.

The towns of Glastonbury and Street are both around five minutes’ drive away, with a choice of shops for buying barbecue goodies, as well as pubs and restaurants if you fancy a break from cooking – and the site itself sometimes hosts the pop-up Cantina, with a menu of South American street food.

    Bobsfield was amazing. A beautiful site, even in November. Amazing nature, clean facilities and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. There was a community area with logs to sit on and campfire. It was a safe and friendly site. It was a home from home. A perfect gem of a campsite.

    Disliked:

    What a find! This was the first time we visited the site and it felt like coming home! We loved the fact that everything here has been made from recycled or repurposed items, and it was great to get a tour from our extremely helpful host Kevin. Great facilities, can’t wait to come back in the spring 😊

    Absolutely everything. The people were so welcoming and friendly. The site was well kept and decorated spookily for Halloween! When we saw the place, we were very excited for our long weekend! Literally 5 mins drive or less to Glastonbury and Street and a retail park even nearer. Parking in Glastonbury was easy too so we didn’t have to walk (as we have mobility issues). Don’t know if there was a bus you could’ve got if you don’t drive but tbf we didn’t check Google maps for it. The cantina is a lovely little food/drink area.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. If anything, we’d recommend the cantina opens in the morning for hot drinks to make our stay better. There was no wifi which is great if you wanna get away from technological life but we just used our data.

From the manager...

Thanks for your lovely review. We do love Halloween 🎃 😁 We will be opening the Cantina all day next summer so you'll barely need a kettle 😉 See you again soon.

    Being surrounded by nature (deer, owls and peregrine falcons to name just few) with a great view of the Tor. The eco facilities are something to be admired and we were only there two nights and by the time we left we felt like part of the family.

Aww you are part of the Bobsfield family now 😉 The wildlife on our doorstep is a source of constant delight. Glad you could be a part of it.

Local attractions

Birders, you’re in the right place. Bobsfield is prime territory for our feathered friends. Teasels have been left for goldfinches, and a corridor mown for the visiting barn owl. The site’s close to Westhay Moor National Nature Reserve (15 minutes’ drive), home to a recovering population of bitterns and birds as varied as marsh harriers and great white egrets.

Glastonbury looms large for its ruined abbey, thought to be the burial place of mythical King Arthur, and hippy shops flogging love beads and boho scarves. There’s bargain shopping of the designer-togs kind at Clarks Village, and when you’ve raided all the stores, why not take an alfresco dip in the lido at Greenbank Pool (all five minutes)?

Clamber up Glastonbury Tor for a nose around the hilltop medieval Chapel of St Michael and stunning glimpses across the Somerset Levels. Once back down at the bottom the hill, have a quiet moment in the peaceful ambience of the Chalice Well: (both five minutes).

If you’ve got Glastonbury Festival tickets and prefer a quiet camping pitch, the festival site is a mere 15 minutes’ drive away from Bobsfield.
