Overgrown Uncared for and lots of rubbish

Miller, Lorraine - 18/05/2024

2

Overgrown hedges and grass, rubbish including bottles and cans etc strewn across the site. Travellers on site, which is fine , but clearly not following any of the rules. Washing lines across the pitches. The Grove felt shabby and I felt like I was in Overspill

Touring break in Somerset.

Turvey, Christine - 17/05/2024

Exterior of the swimming pool needs a paint and cheering up. Also the temperature of the water was unnecessary too hot.Flowerbeds and shrubs to encourage bird life would be appreciated.Information on local footpaths were non existence so that could be improved.Friendly staff. Good food generous portions but shame bar and restaurant not open more during May.

Lovely place to stay with helpful staff

Probert, Linda - 15/05/2024

Strawberry Fields is the best area to stay in. Spacious pitches and a short walk to the facilities, pool and bar/restaurant. Lots of inside and outside seating areas. Could do with a few more in the shade though. Children's play area opposite the bar. Toilet and shower block warm, clean and tidy. Very helpful and friendly staff. There are no walks you can undertake from the site. There are no footpaths on the road so walking on them would be dangerous. You need to drive to visit other areas or to undertake the local walking routes. However, the bus stops just opposite the camp site if you don't want to drive.

Good value but still improving

Donovan, Daniel - 14/05/2024

We booked this on a whim mainly due to the low cost for a lodge for 4 days. We were dubious due to the reviews received under the previous owners, but it seems to have improved since Wookey took over. The lodge was clean, well presented and excellent value. The hot tub was nice and private and also very clean. The pool was fine - warm and clean too. We were a bit disappointed to find that the bar & restaurant was closed however. The site was very quiet, with excellent views. The animal trail was fun for the little one too although the animals disappeared after the first day! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good value holiday park to use as a base to explore the mendips and Somerset area.
