Our Inspector's view
Old Oaks is an exceptional, adults-only park offering larger-than-average landscaped pitches (standard, super, premier and superior), impeccably maintained grounds and wonderful views. The perfect ‘get away from it all’ spot where you can enjoy walking, cycling, fishing and touring or simply relaxing amid the abundant wildlife. The top-class facilities include a well-stocked shop selling locally-sourced produce, cakes and gifts, two smart shower blocks with excellent wet rooms, WiFi, free walking and cycling maps, a half-acre fishing lake, dog walk, dog field with swimming pond and even a hot doggy shower. Glamping now comprises six 2-person, heated wooden glamping cabins, two shepherd's huts and four mini lodges, all beautifully equipped to a high standard. Two of the glamping units have private hot tubs.

About the area
Somerset means ‘summer pastures’ – appropriate given that so much of this county remains rural and unspoiled. Ever popular areas to visit are the limestone and red sandstone Mendip Hills rising to over 1,000 feet, and by complete contrast, to the south and southwest, the flat landscape of the Somerset Levels. Descend to the Somerset Levels, an evocative lowland landscape that was the setting for the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685. In the depths of winter this is a desolate place and famously prone to extensive flooding. There is also a palpable sense of the distant past among these fields and scattered communities. It is claimed that Alfred the Great retreated here after his defeat by the Danes.
Away from the flat country are the Quantocks, once the haunt of poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth. The Quantocks are noted for their gentle slopes, heather-covered moorland expanses and red deer. From the summit, the Bristol Channel is visible where it meets the Severn Estuary. So much of this hilly landscape has a timeless quality about it and large areas have hardly changed since Coleridge and Wordsworth’s day.
