The campsite is on a working dairy farm that originates from before the 14th century. We have 250 cows as well as sheep, horses, chickens, Fergi the dog and Tigger & Toffee the cats. You will see the animals out in the fields around the campsite and you may even meet the cows walking down the road on their way to the milking parlour. You can visit the animals or watch the cows being milked with us by prior arrangement.
There are lots of footpaths and lanes around the farm to explore the immediate area. Take a stroll to the heart of the beautiful village of West Bradley and visit the old church, or attend the "pick your own" apples event throughout September at the local apple farm. You could travel 'off road' to The Red Lion in West Pennard (2 miles), or explore the neighbouring village of Baltonsborough, with a new and improved Farm Shop (Balsbury Grocer), just 1. 5 miles away. The walk to the Tor from the site is just 4 miles and crosses some of the most picturesque farmland in Somerset.
If you prefer to cycle, there is an easy, flat route to Glastonbury via the hamlet of Coxbridge and along the banks of the River Brue. National Cycle Route 26 passes just 1 mile away, through the village of Baltonsborough and Number 3 goes from Glastonbury to Wells. Find out more on The Sustrans Website.There are lots of lanes, back roads and green lanes in the area for the more intrepid cyclist.
Please be aware that working farms sometimes have machinery moving about and animals can be unpredictable. Children must be supervised at all times and due care and attention should be paid when moving around the farm. Be sure to follow the Countryside Code when out and about:
- Be safe - plan ahead and follow any signs
- Leave gates and property as you find them
- Protect plants and animals, and take your litter home
- Keep dogs under close control
- Consider other people
Always keep your dog on a lead. Even nice dogs can scare livestock.
Most of all - Enjoy our beautiful area.
