General

  • Set among apple orchards with scrumpy cider available to buy on site
  • Easy access to Taunton by road or along the canal by foot or bike
  • Wild peacocks, ducks, geese, guinea fowls and chickens

A Somerset site with 'cider farm' in the name: how fizzing fantastic. And the means to buy scrumpy on site from two spacious apple orchards: how fizzing fantastic too.

Lashings of Henry's Farmhouse Scrumpy can be obtained at Tanpits Cider Farm Caravan and Camping Park – perhaps on arrival, to have on your very first day while firing up the barbecue for a post-sunset supper under the Somerset stars…?

Free range eggs are also available to buy for sizzling up for breakfast, a meal that might see you joined by the feathered and furred residents of this friendly and peaceful little farm site: wild peacocks, ducks, geese, guinea fowls and chickens all wander here, and you should see squirrels scampering about too.

The farm is right next to the historic Bridgwater and Taunton Canal, about 40 minutes' walk or 15 minutes by bike via the handsomely scenic towpath to the old town of Taunton. Happily tasty pub food and ales are about six minutes' stroll from base at the Merry Monk, and a retail centre with shops (and cinema) is within easy walking distance.

The farm facilities include hot showers, toilets, a launderette and a washing-up area. A play area is to hand for kids – possibly best to distract them while the grownups sort out a hefty purchase of Somerset farm scrumpy.

Lovely, well placed site09/25/2018

    LOVELY site and well placed for touring the local area with an easy walk along the canal to Taunton.
    The pitches were large and set out between the apple trees.
    There were a lot of wildfowl and ducks wandering around who were very friendly and would visit us throughout the day for porridge oats !

    Owners were friendly and welcoming on arrival.

    Yes, the toilet facilities in the “orchard area” are basic and in a portacabin but you can walk to the main block where there are very acceptable toilets and showers.
    I believe this site is better suited to units with their own facilities as there are only 2 toilets / 2 showers in each area and I can imagine it would get very busy in peak season.

    We’ll definitely be going back.

Well worth the money08/15/2018

    The pitches were very large, the wildlife of rabbits, peacocks, geese & guineafowl were great to see everywhere.
    Good washing up facilities.
    Great electricity hookups

    Disliked: 

    In the second toilet block there was never any hand soap. The lights also went off after 15 seconds of not seeing any movement by the entrance door. This made it difficult if you used it at night as it went pitch black 8 seconds after sitting down. I wasn't impressed that you had to take a torch inside a cubicle to be able to see.

    The Main toilet block, all the taps would only work while you were pushing them down which made it difficult to use them.The showers were the same that you had to press in a button every 40 seconds or so otherwise the water would go off. There was no temperature control for the water, so you had to take the shower at the temperature the site owner had set and there was no way to make it hotter or colder. There was also no space to be able to put your old and new cloths apart from 3 hangers on the door.

    We liked the fact that we could choose our pitching site. Pitch sizes are very generous size which we loved.The peacocks, Guineafowl and gooses roaming around the site really made us feel like we were on a farm. The near by water canel was an added bonus for walks in the evening.

    Disliked: 

    For what we were paying an night we didn't expect the extra frills.
    Facilities were ok but not enough on the busy nights.
    Cleanliness Was ok on quite nights but when busier required more attention.
