Camping 5 Acres

· Taunton, England
5 acres hosted by Sarah B.
12 motorhome/tent pitches
Creature comforts
Enjoy the comforts of home in nature at some pitches — including real toilets, showers, and kitchen.
As you'd expect from a site with such a name, there's a whole lot of space in which to relax and explore at 5 Acres, a large grassy site in the Somerset Levels. Kids and dogs are both welcome on site here, and there's plenty of scope for them to run about and play games safely away from barbecues and campfires (which are also permitted to keep you warm and fed in the evenings). Facilities on site include firepits, a toilet and shower block and outdoor sinks with mains water. Dogs must be kept on leads at all time. We class ourselves as a quite site so no amplified music. Mains hook ups are 6Amp max rated. Pitches are approximately 16m x 20m. The flag, firepit and pitch number line up in the centre of your pitch. The surrounding Somerset Levels aren’t just out in the sticks – they also produce them. Willow cane has been cultivated the traditional way in this part of the county for hundreds of years and can be seen growing within a mile of 5 Acres. The Levels are also a wildlife haven, making them an all-round top choice for country walks along the many trails nearby. And while this may be a rural retreat, it's also one that's easy to get to as it's just off the A378 (no winding country lanes to negotiate for this one…) Taunton town centre, with its wide range of shops and supermarkets, is a 15-minute drive away. The closest pub and coffee shop are five minutes away by road.

Non electric grass pitches
Such a great site! So much room for each pitch and a lovely wild flower meadow with paths cut through for the toilets (which were in a converted horse box!!). Everything super clean. Fire pits on every pitch. Lovely rolling hills surrounding it. Would recommend!

Non electric grass pitches
Peaceful stay.
A lovely, very spacious field. Wild flowers in the centre. Large pitches with own fire pit. Outdoor sink and rubbish with cold water. A little noise from a side road but very peaceful on the whole. Very quirky toilets and showers in a horse box. Very clean and well made. Very friendly owner who supplies logs if needed. Would recommend if you like to camp simply and peacefully.
