Our woodland campsite

General

  • Peaceful Blackdown Hills site with two fishing lakes
  • 15 minutes from Taunton and 30 from Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast
  • In a walkers' paradise: free maps of local trails available on site

This peaceful little site may take its name from the monarch’s honey wine, but these days it’s the food in the area that’s fit for a king: about 20 minutes' walk from the site is the Half Moon, serving fresh and traditional pub food with side order views over the Culm Valley.

Kingsmead Centre is excellent territory too for ramblers, cyclists and equestrians, with free maps for all the nearby trails available on site – a local recommendation is the longer-distance Neroche Herepath.

In a wooded vale in the Blackdown Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), Kingsmead also has two coarse fishing lakes which are exclusively reserved for guests’ use, and is home to a wide variety of birds and other wildlife.

The shower and toilet facilities are simple and clean, with no shortage of free hot water. Well-behaved pets are welcome on site.

    Jodie and Tristan were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much effort for them. They made us very welcome from day 1 and left us firewood every night so that we could use the fire pit (which we certainly did make use of). They were very responsive to our requests (from a spatula to a spare duvet) and always had a smile on their face.

Excellent site, clean facilities, secluded and easy stop over pitches11/20/2019

  • Overnight electric asphalt touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Just a one night stop over but was perfect and would love to return to spend some time here. We arrived in the dark around 8pm having just booked that day. There is a phone to call reception within a laundry room and we were then given directions to the pitch which was easy.
    The facilities are clean and modern.
    The whole campsite is situated in the woods with pitches squirrelled away within the trees.

    Disliked: 

    The site is situated several miles from the motorway and up some windy and quite narrow (at times) lanes so be prepared for that - they were better in the daylight the next day. Not really a dislike as very much worth the journey
