Additional notes

Comments : The site is suitable for a mixture of indoor accommodation and out door camping. The whole site is given over to the unit using it. No animals of any description (dogs, cats etc) A coach cannot get onto the site so children etc have to be dropped at the gate (500yd walk to site along hard drive)Local shops include small Co-Op and butchers, PO farm shop …all handy Larger stores deliver from Taunton
