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.

The shops and restaurants of historic town Taunton are a short drive from Tanpits Cider Farm Caravan and Camping Park, also easily reachable via bike or feet via the towpath of the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal. Have a wander in town around Vivary Park, once a medieval fish farm and now a place of tennis courts, miniature golf, playgrounds, model railway track and two playgrounds.
Taunton's also famed for its flowers (the Taunton Flower Show's nickname is 'the Chelsea of the west'); if this suits your green-fingered tastes, Vivary Park also has over 55,000 spring and summer plants, and a rose garden that includes the Royal National Rose Society's Provincial Trial Ground.
Other nearby places of interest and activity are the West Somerset Railway near Bishops Lydeard seven miles away, Clarks Village (20 miles) and Minehead, within 30 miles. The walks and mountain bike rides of the Quantock Hills are also a popular pick.
