Batcombe Vale Camp Site
Batcombe Vale is a quiet campsite set in the green hills of Somerset and offers not only stunning views but peace and tranquillity, where the buzzards soar on the thermals and the waterside statue is a real heron.
The site is perfectly located for you to explore the World famous, historical surrounding Countryside. From the legendary Glastonbury and King Arthur's Holy Grail to the West and to the East, the beautiful Wiltshire features Stonehenge, Longleat and Salisbury Cathedral. Bordering on the County of Dorset, you are only minutes from yet more unspoiled landscapes. The famous Cities of Bristol and Bath to the North provide more historic attractions as well as some the best retail therapy outside of London.
Batcombe is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. Set in the middle of one of it's secluded valleys is an enclosure of trees, lakes and wild landscaped gardens around Batcombe Vale House.
This area of Somerset offers some of the best camping in England. The Somerset Levels are reknowned for their far reaching views of unspoiled landscapes and views across the Mendip region. NO FLOODS HERE - thankfully, our location escaped the severity of the Winter UK rains, so you can be assured of dry camp site, although we'll never guarantee the UK weather!
The landscaping includes thirty individual pitches of mown grass, all adjacent a hard roadway. There are electric hook-ups; water, drainage and rubbish points. A log cabin contains basins, sinks and showers with free hot water, together with toilets and a chemical disposal unit and tourist information, all well lit after dark. There are 3 good pubs within 3 miles of the campsite all offering excellent food and ale. We are a dog friendly site, all pets are welcome.
The 120 acre valley around the campsite is part of Batcombe Vale; you are welcome to wander and picnic in the fields and enjoy the company of the cows. Free rowing boats provide fun for children and adults alike (parents are fully responsible for their children's safety and behaviour). There are many shaded glades designed for you to hide away with a good book or just relax and observe the abundant wildlife.
Three of the lakes within the campsite have scores of carp and tench up to 20lbs for the 'fisher folk'. We expect the fish to be treated kindly with the use of barbless hooks and landing nets, - keep nets are forbidden.
