The Halfway Caravan and Camping Park

8.8

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

General

  • Rural Somerset site five minutes' drive from central Yeovil
  • Handy stopover point on journeys to Devon or Cornwall
  • Next door to a traditional inn with top-quality food and a lake

It will, of course, rather depend on your starting point and final destination. But if you’re Devon- or Cornwall-bound on the A303 it’s quite possible that The Halfway Caravan and Camping Park will indeed offer a handy stopover roughly halfway through the journey.

There’s rather more to this small friendly Somerset site than simply a place to flop for the night though... For starters, fab views can be had over the surrounding fields and farmland, and there's easy access to a whole bunch of townie amenities five minutes' drive away in Yeovil. On top of that, it’s surely always a bonus to note that there’s an inn next door – especially when it happens to be one that serves up top-notch grub and has a lakeside trail for post-drive leg-stretching.

It's worth resisting the urge to get straight back on the road here, as the park is in a tiptop location for days out. Those who settle in for several days can hit Weymouth's beach, Stourhead's gardens, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole with a leisurely drive of an hour or so, or take to local trails for rural rambles or rides.

Between day trips, there's space on site for kids and dogs to have a bit of a run about while the grownups put their feet up, pour a glass of something (ideally something local, this being cider country) and gently stoke the barbecue coals.

    This is a little gem of a site if you need a stop over. It’s such a tidy site, facilities are clean and Jess is so friendly and kind. I felt safe on the site and it’s clearly very well maintained. I didn’t visit the pub but this would have been an easy way to get fed and watered if needed. Lake is beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing! There are other reviews about the road noise but this is minimal…and it’s a site on a main road so it will not be silent!

Local attractions

The surrounds here are the kind of classic English scenery that gets folk all misty-eyed. If you're looking for a pretty place to potter, make for Montacute 10 minutes’ drive away: its streets have featured in several films including Sense & Sensibility and Elizabeth.

Scenic strolls are in good supply around here: the National Trust’s stunning Stourhead estate is 25 minutes away by car, and the gorgeous grounds of Forde Abbey and Gardens are half an hour away. For a side order of legend and myth as you meander, take a tour of Glastonbury Tor (25 minutes), said to have links with King Arthur and the Holy Grail.

There’s more stunning natural scenery to be seen on a visit to Cheddar Gorge (50 minutes) or by delving into the showcaves at Wookey Hole (40 minutes). Meanwhile, those with other interests may like to take flight to Fleet Air Arm Museum (10 minutes), meet the menagerie at Ferne Animal Sanctuary (half an hour) or pack their bucket and spade for a day spent on the sands of Weymouth (45 minutes).

Must see

  • Montacute House (2.4 miles)
  • Fleet Air Arm Museum (3.2 miles)
  • Haynes International Motor Museum (6.8 miles)
