Alan Rogers Review
Pamela and Alan Walton are really enthusiastic about their small, beautifully kept, adults-only park in the Somerset village of Sparkford where they will make you most welcome. This level, landscaped site is surrounded by attractive beech hedging, silver birch and many other ornamental trees and the park has a relaxed, comfortable feel. It provides 50 touring pitches for all types of units (max. 12 m) with 16A electricity hook-ups (32A on request), 25 pitches with hardstanding, 12 being fully serviced and some extra long with grass lawns at the side, and the entrance has been widened for easier access. Part of the park is being developed with holiday lodges for private ownership or rent, and in 2022 the brand new lodge specially designed for disabled campers with their carer will be available to rent. American-style motorhomes are welcome.
Set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this site offers a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Buzzards, hawks and even peregrine falcons can often be seen. Established in 1945, the site is close to King Arthur’s Camelot Castle, whose history is well researched by the owner. The park is an easy walk to Sparkford village, which has an inn and a shop. It is securely locked at night and the owner lives on the premises. This is well located for the Haynes Motor Museum, the Royal Air Arm Museum in Yeovilton, and the Newt centre in Bruton and is close to the A303.
