General

  • Simple but scenic Somerset site between Wincanton and Templecombe
  • A 15-minute drive to Stourhead; 25 minutes to Longleat
  • Five-acre field with rural views; five minutes' drive from the A303

Blackacre Barn is a simple but scenic site in the south Somerset countryside, with pitches spread across a spacious five-acre field between Wincanton and Templecombe (and about five minutes’ drive from both).

Look all around you and you’ll see classic countryside views – so it might be hard to believe that this is in fact a particularly handy spot for road-trip stopovers. The site is accessed from the A357, with the A303 about a five-minute drive away (handy knowledge) for those heading across country to/from Devon or Cornwall…)

That said, there’s a whole lot more to this place than simply somewhere to sling your bags down for a night or two. The likes of Glastonbury, Bath and Bruton are close by, as are all sorts of attractions including Stourhead, Longleat and Wookey Hole.

Facilities on site are fairly simple but include toilets, showers and water points. Dogs are welcome, as are barbecues (you’ll just need to check the rules for both so that everyone can have a safe stay). There's a pub half a mile away if you fancy an evening out – or there are places to eat in both of the nearby towns.

    This was an excellent stopover site close to A303. The large field has lovely views of rolling hills with plenty of space to choose your perfect pitch. Brand new compost toilet and hot shower units were just what we wanted. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we wish them well in this new venture!
