Somerset, South West England

Voted AA campsite of the year 2013, this tranquil, rural park offers a luxury camping and caravanning experience, 'just for the grown ups'.

The state of the art shower block has been described as comparing to a 4 star hotel and contains several private shower rooms, laundry, seating area and lots more.

Located just 3 miles by road and 2 on foot, to the bohemian town of Glastonbury, the park enjoys unspoilt countryside with panoramic views of the Mendip Hills. Just a short distance away are the Medieval city of Wells, a choice of 60 nature reserves, the spectacular Cheddar Gorge, Clarks shopping centre, gorgeous gardens and lots of pretty villages to explore.

With 103 pitches spread over 10 acres, there's no scrimping on space with lots of green open lawns and spacious pitches. The abundance of mature native trees, scrubs and flowers, provide excellent habitat for wildlife and bird watching. Stepping off site, there's an extensive network of footpaths and cycle routes, with the iconic Glastonbury Tor just 3/4 mile (to the base), on foot.

A 3/4 acre coarse fishing pond provides a leisurely sport for the anglers and a beautiful spot to while away some time, for those who like to sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

As well as lots of all weather touring pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes, we have 6 unique Camping Cabins (luxury camping pods) - a fantastic alternative to a tent or caravan. A great way for friends who 'don't do camping' to holiday with those who do!

Facilities include FREE wifi throughout the park, tourist information room with TV and pool table, free walking maps, minibus service, day trips and tours, excellent campsite shop stocking lots of local produce and camping equipment. We also offer a weekly caravan cleaning service, painting holidays and fishing competitions.

Come and see us soon!

From the Guest Book

Practical Caravan Top 100 Parks Award 2008

This adult’s-only site is located just outside Glastonbury. Festival aside, the town is steeped in history and folklore and well worth exploring. Find peace in the grounds of the ancient Glastonbury Abbey, once the richest abbey in England and said to house the tomb of King Arthur and Guinevere. Ornate Wells Cathedral is also close enough for a day trip. At Old Oaks park you will find panoramic views and access to walks over the rolling countryside. There is also a pool,
dog walk and fishing lake. The large pitches are placed around open grassy spaces so you never feel crowded. Hardstandings and electric hook-up are available. Numerous water points are conveniently placed throughout and the site has washroom, washing-up and laundry facilities. The on site shop has a good range of groceries and offers a freezer pack hire service.

Practical Motorhome Independent Site Reviews.

Old Oaks is one of those gems of a tourng park you find all too infrequently. It's a family-managed site exclusively for adults, run by Jim and Sally White, and is well signposted from roads leading into and out of the town of Glastonbury. The prominently signposted access drive, with passing bay, leads to a courtyard in front of the farmhouse, with a separate reception block, and well-stocked shop and off-licence. Service roads on site are hedged and fairly narrow, although adequate and well paved, so that long US RVs can be accepted.
The camping areas currently consist of 80 level pitches, of which 29 are fully serviced: of these, 17 are hardstanding and 12 are grass. Each camping area has a distinctive character, from the Walnut Paddock Circle with hardstandings for caravans and motorhomes, each with its own grassed area, to the adjacent Walnut Paddock Terrace with grassed pitches for trailer tents.
The Orchard has a mix of hardstandings with hook-ups and grass pitches for tents, around a central area of cider apple trees. Nearby, the Camping Paddock is used for tents and small motorhomes. The fully-tiled amenity block has an excellent layout and facilities and also has provision for disabled campers.
Dog behaviour on site is well monitored and controlled, and dogs must be kept on lead.
A new dog walk with a dog washing facility allows the third family member to be exercised off the lead.
A half-acre pond, less than 300 yards from most pitches, for guests' exclusive use, allows coarse fishing for carp, with some roach and tench. For this, a small permit fee is charged from April to September. A lane at the back of the site leads up to Glastonbury Tor, and bicycle hire is available.
The site is close to some of the county's main attractions, including Glastonbury Abbey, and Cheddar Gorge.

The facilities are second to none, the best I have ever encountered. The attention to detail everywhere is excellent. The whole site is kept beautiful and very well maintained. The owners and wardens are very friendly and helpful. The art course which they run a few times a year is a lovely idea. And last but not least, the daily cakes are to die for!

Kate Fortune
