This was our first ever outing in our new caravan which we'd just picked up. Kathryn was very helpful on booking when I explained we were beginners, ensuring we had a level and easy site to get into. Lovely level site with large grass area and some hard standing, and beautiful views over the countryside. Easy access off main road but no traffic noise as entry via farm track. Kathryn very friendly and helpful throughout visit. Facilities basic but very clean and perfectly adequate, shower surprisingly good. Overall a good 1st experience, would definately visit again. (Recommend a visit to Clevedon pier)

Woke to the dawn chorus on dawn chorus morning of a bank holiday weekend.
A most delightful small campsite - very convenient to access but rural and with picturesque views of the hills.
Flat, well cared for field with sheltered spots by the hedges or electrical hook-ups on the other side of the field.
Cows, sheep and horses in the fields around. Launching access on the Axe and stunning views of the Mendips. You can only just hear the road noise which is surprising considering how near and convenient the roads are. Any road noise was drowned out by the dawn chorus!
Facilities were a clean unit with 2 loos per sex and a superb hot clean shower - takes pound coins but 2x 20ps were enough to recover from long cycle rides round the Mendips, Cheddar and Quantocks.
Sad to leave in the evening when other campers were sitting round their fire baskets ( logs available from friendly hosts).
Would certainly book again and recommend to anyone wanting to camp in the area or stop off on the way to Cornwall

Just had six nights at this lovely site.
The owners are very friendly and welcoming and have plenty of local knowledge on places to go and things to do.
We had hard standing, with plenty of room as they only have three units on there at any one time.
The hard standing is quite newly laid, which means water drains quickly which was good as we had lots of rain!
There is a local garage that sells papers and basic grocerys 1/4 mile away.
Lovely views of the Mendips.
A very user friendly chemical toilet deposable point, and also the water point with a pipe attached thats just the right length for an aqua roll.
A proper cycle track (The Strawberry Line) nearby, which we did, also walks from the site.
Would visit again, as a good clean site, and there are still places close by that we still have to visit.
DATE STAYED: October 2012
Fantastic site, plenty of room and great owner. Lovely clean facilities and very good price for the area. Lots to see and do around about then back to the site to chill in peace and quiet. Easy site to access, would definately recommed this beautiful CS site to everyone.

Just returned from watersmeet farm and we have had a fantastic week,the owners are friendly and welcoming,the toilets and showers are very clean,the site is very flat and the space between units is excellent. The site is a 10 min drive to Cheddar and 20 mins to Weston super-mare,the local pub is a short walk away and the views of the Mendip hills are stunning.This is one of the quietest farms sites we have ever stayed on and we will certainly be going back.

Fantastic friendly welcome from Kathryn and her Jack Russell "Spice", site easy to find on the main A38, although the site sign is quite small so keep your eyes peeled, good hard access road, level site, with large pitches 10 with hook ups, hedge around site keeps any wind down, clean and functional toilet block, with a shower room, a good size shower room, with electric power shower, (9 minutes for Â£1, but dont put your money in until people have finished filling their water container as it takes the water pressure from the shower and it wont work) the site is great value for money, beautiful surrounding countryside, you can buy logs and a fire lighter from the farm and borrow a brazier if you want to sit out and keep warm after a BBQ, we will definitely be going back, Kathryn also came over to say goodbye the night before we were due to leave and thanked us for coming,which made us feel appreciated.Well worth a visit is also the Lamb inn up the road for great home cooked food.

Just returned from an absolutely wonderful long weekend at this camp site. The owners are extremely friendly and nothing is to much trouble for them even though they were in the middle of the lambing season.
The facilities are more than adequate with clean toilets and a large shower room. The camping field is flat and well mown with well spaced out electric hookups.
The site is very well positioned for Cheddar, Wookey Hole, Weston Super-mare and a 50 minute drive to Bath which is well worth a visit especially the Roman baths.
Pub a short stroll away and a garage for essential bits and bobs about 1/2 mile away ,Tesco store at Burnham on sea and also Wells
There were flame pits to use if required and bbq's are also permitted.
The pitch fees were very modest given the location.
I would recommend this site to anyone wanting a no frills quiet holiday.

First ever outing in a campervan so we chose this site as it was close to home to try things out and offered the peace, quiet and simple facilities (as well as being within walking distance of a pub) that we were looking for to play at being 'campers'.
Despite what must have been the coldest night of the year we were given a warm welcome by Kathryn when we arrived late in the day just as it was getting dark. Spotless toilets, waste and water facilities all at hand, take your pick which panoramic view of the Mendip hills you want!
Five minutes walk (ten on the way back) to the Lamb Inn where we had a nice meal before a quiet and peaceful nights sleep.
Upon leaving Kathryn came out again to make sure that everything was alright with our stay and to enquire how we had got on with the campervan.
Despite the closeness to home I'm sure that we will return here again when the sun comes out.
Highly recommended and sets the standard for the next stop

We decided to take the kids (4+6) for a 3 day break over the autumn half term. We all enjoyed the site that much we ended up staying for the week. Lots of room for the kids to run around. The toilet block is basic and cleaned every day. Drinking water and waste disposal are easily accessible along with rubbish and recycling. The owners are on site and very friendly. The site is connected to a working farm and the kids got taken round to feed the animals one night which they thought was great. . Great views of the hills. The site is on the opposite side of the road to the pin on the map (North of the Road), two fields back.. Very easy access from the main road if your towing although the entrance is easy to miss first time. Plenty of places to turn around if your coming in from the West. Pub within walking distance down the road or across the field and a petrol station just up the main road for essentials. There is a slipway to the river for those who like messing about on the river. Even the garage over the road fixed a puncture we had within about half an hour. Good central spot from Wells, Cheddar, Burnham on Sea and Weston Super Mare if you like the sea. Lots of space for 5 vans and a few tents. We will be going back again.

Having just read my review I notice that I must have clicked the wrong star marking for facilities. It should be a 5 star. There are electric hook ups, toilets, chemical disposal point, drinking water, rubbish and recycling.

Have just spent a few nights here where we received a very warm welcome from Kathryn and Mark, who provided information about local walks, pub etc. Nice peaceful, level field with views of the Mendip hills. Very short stroll to River Axe, local pub and garage. Garage also sells basic items but not daily newspapers. Just over 10 miles to Brean Sands, and about 10 minutes to Cheddar Gorge. Kathryn popped down the first night to make sure everything was okay, and she always found time to stop and chat if we wanted to. Came for a very lazy, quiet few days and had just that. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to return here next year.
Having just spent 3 nights on this peaceful site situated at the foot of the Mendip Hills we felt we had to write a review. The welcome was second to none and I would imagine that nothing would be too much trouble for the owners. The site is very spacious and level, with a clean toilet block. The surrounding area is beautiful and very relaxing or you can drive to the coast within 20 minutes. There are numerous walks from the site which the owners will share with you. An excellent location and very friendly and welcoming owners, we will be back, that is for sure.

We spent a few days at this site with friends. We were given a warm welcome, the site was well kept, clean and tidy. Lots of walking from the site. Had a meal at the local pub which was good. We are planning a return visit.

We had a lovely stay at Watersmeet Farm. A quiet, friendly site. Basic but very tidy. Fabulous FLAT field! Loads of space, we didn't feel we were on top of anyone. The views are fantastic, looking staight up onto the Mendips. You can walk along the River Axe and enjoy the quiet or a very short walk in the other direction takes you to the local friendly pub. Theres a garage just up the road also where you can get the essentials if you run out, otherwise its only a short drive either up onto the beautiful Mendip Hills or to the Sea side and Burnham on Sea and Weston Super Mare.
