Location - Martock, Somerset

Our West Country location is an ideal base for exploring Somerset and in easy reach of the beautiful Dorset coastline.

 

With a range of large, level pitches for camping and touring as well as our fabulous, wooden glamping pod and static caravan holiday homes, our campsite offers a range of options for your perfect holiday.   

On our doorstep is Parrett Iron Works, a series of industrial buildings on the river, formerly known as Carey’s Mill.  The site includes some outstanding examples of late 19th century industrial architecture with a history which dates back to the doomsday book.  It has, in the past, produced snuff, sailcloth, rope, steam engines, agricultural machines and mass produced wagons and carts.    It is now privately owned but adjacent to the mill is Castle Reclamation, a wonderful treasure trove of architectural antiques, furniture and great vintage finds.

We also have the River Parrett within walking distance for fishing, you can buy day fishing licences direct from reception for selected local coarse fisheries, have a look at our fishing page for more information on opportunities for coarse, game and sea fishing in the area.   If fishing is not your thing, the River Parrett is also a perfect place to sit and observe our local wildlife. 

The Parrett Trail runs by our park, so this is an ideal place to stay if you enjoy walking – for more information on walking the Parrett Trail and other opportunities for keen walkers in the area, have a look at our walking page.    

Cyclists are also well catered for in the immediate area with a number of long and short routes available as well as some great mountain biking opportunities.  Our cycling page has more information for cyclists, we also have our cycling expert, Mick, a keen cyclist himself, on hand for advice and recommendations.

Our campsite is set amid the the Somerset Levels which are well known for delicious locally produced food, beers and ciders and there are a number of great local options for eating out.   What better way to end the day than with a good meal from one of the excellent pubs or restaurants nearby. You can also sample the local food from produce markets, regularly held throughout Somerset and Dorset.   

From the park you can see Burrow Hill, recognisable by the solitary sycamore tree which site on the top.  Burrow Hill is home of Burrow Hill Cider, producers of ‘proper’ West-Country cider and the world famous Somerset Cider Brandy.  We stock both the local Cider and Cider Brandy in our on-site shop. From the other side of the park you can see Ham Hill which is the site of an Iron Age Hill Fort, a Roman site and is now a Country Park.   You can walk through the quarries where the local Ham Stone comes from or you can simply sit and take in the wonderful panoramic views.
