What To Do On Your Somerset Glamping Holiday
When you manage to tear yourselves away from the peace and tranquility of the Yurt & Gypsy Caravan, you will see that we have plenty of holiday treats to suit all ages.
We are centrally located adjacent to the Bridgewater and Taunton canal. With easy road access to the large towns of Bristol, Wells, Bath and Exeter. Glastonbury and the shopping complex at Street is approximately half an hour away, the spectacular Cheddar Gorge and caves about 40 minutes drive. Dunster with its historic castle, the Bristol channel, Minehead and Watchet and the Quantock Hills to the West. The Jurassic Coast, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis and the Blackdown Hills to the South. Exmoor, Dartmoor and the North Devon Coast are all well worth a visit. A trip to the Eden centre in Cornwall will take about two hours by car.
