Alan Rogers Review

Ilminster Caravan and Motorhome Club Site is a pleasant and peaceful holiday destination, the beautifully maintained site slopes slightly towards some of the loveliest South Somerset countryside and has great open views. Located just off the A303 the site is ideal as a touring base for Devon, Dorset and Somerset. It also makes a good stopover for travelling further south. The busy market towns of Chard and Ilminster are situated close to the site and have a deep history of country trades. For dining, the nearby Eagle pub offers good value food. The site has 68 mostly grass pitches (some seasonal) all with electricity 16amp.

Ilminster site is in an area rich with the legends of King Arthur and you can soak up the tales and the atmospheres of England's great mythical king at nearby Cadbury and Glastonbury. The scenic coast and delightful port of Lyme Regis are also within easy distance of the site and for golf enthusiasts the championship golf course at Windwhistle will not fail to impress. For walkers and bird watchers, the nature reserve at Chard Reservoir offers lovely trails to follow and more than 150 species of bird to see, including migrant Ospreys.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Location

Please only use these recommended directions for your final approach and not sat nav, due to alternative roads being unsuitable for towing. Turn left off the A303 (Ilminster - Honiton) at crossroads signposted Crickleaze, Whitestaunton (about 0.75 mile past Eagle Tavern) into narrow lane. The site is through the second entrance on the left in 250 yards. Do not turn into first entrance (Five Acres House) as it is difficult to back out. For your safety, on leaving the site turn left at junction with A303; in 1 mile at the dual carriageway turn left at signpost Marsh; continue under bridge and turn right to rejoin A303 (E).
