This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.
Kingsettle camp-site; 7 acres of beautiful rural countryside, with large flat pitches, open views and play areas. Relax to a glowing camp fire whilst watching the sun set.
Stourhead House and Gardens are three miles from Alfred’s Tower, standing in woods above the site, and throughout which, runs the Leyland Trail. Bruton offers culture with the Houser and Worth Art Gallery and Wincanton has the Race course.
We are ideally situated for local shows from The Bath and West, Frome, Gillingham and Shaftesbury.
A day out could be planned for many of the major attractions in the area such as Longleat Safari Park and House, Haynes Motor Museum, Yeoviltons Fleet Air Arm museum, Glastonbury Abbey and Tour, Wells Cathedral, Wookey Hole Caves and Cheddar Gorge.
This small countryside retreat offers peace and quiet, fresh air, freedom, a friendly welcome, and the opportunity to explore a diverse, unique selection of attractions.

Excellent peaceful getaway with very friendly and helpful owner. Great for visiting Stourhead.
We stayed here in when visiting national Trust Stourhead with our four year old and 11 week old baby. It is an excellent site with good views over open countryside. The facilities are basic but very charming and always immaculate. The "shower in a shed" was very effective and always hot. The fire pits are a great bonus as are the supply of marshmallows for toasting. There is a good pub a short walk form the site.
Jennie, the owner, could not have be more helpful or friendly, making us feel very welcome and offering good advice on the surrounding area.
Overall a great site for people that want a small site for a peaceful getaway. We will definitely be back.

Lovely little site, but with all the facilities
Stayed at Kingsettle at the end of August for three nights. Arrived quite late on the Wednesday and pitched in the dark, so we got the first full impression of the site when we got up in the morning. This place is gorgeous and spacious.
There's 14 or 15 pitches on the site (can't remember exactly), but even if every one was occupied you couldn't feel crowded here. They're around the outside of the field, and Jenny has even helpfully marked out which ones have the best view, are best in wet weather, where any slightly more party minded people should pitch, etc. Most of them have a sunken fire pit, and little solar lights marking them out after dark. The centre of the field has a couple of small football goals and netball hoops, and it all looks out over some glorious Somerset countryside.
Site's small, but it has two compost loos (which I think Jenny has recently got installed), a hot shower, washing up point and drinking water. It covers what you need, while still feeling like you're in the middle of the countryside surrounded by nature. You can really feel the pride and effort that's been put into the place, and it pays off.
We were staying at the site with the plan of heading off to various Somerset locations, and it's great for that. Went over to Weston, down to Cerne Abbas, and up to Lacock. Didn't feel at all like we'd travelled too far, and there's much more in the way of local activities too (Stourhead, Fleet Air Arm Museum, etc).
I'd recommend this site to anyone, and hopefully will be back next year.

Lovely quiet site, loads of space, everything you should need!
This is a quiet site, with easy access to heaps of local activities. Stayed 4 nights so have to go back soon to see more of what's nearby! Bison Centre near Mere, Haynes Motor Museum, Cadbury Castle (hill fort - possibly Camelot???), Alfred's Tower and Stourhead... The list goes on. The site is very spacious, has loos and a shower plus the essentials. Buzzard and Tawny Owls seen/heard at the site. Jenny (the owner) is very friendly and helpful and knows the area well. Excellent local pub only half a mile away. Highly recommended!
