Woodland Glamping Holidays Activities & Attractions

Whether you are coming to our Somerset w00dland glamping site for a rural glamping holiday, joining us for a romantic  woodland getaway in the Somerset countryside, looking for a family glamping break in Somerset or a group glamping holiday; our Woodland Escape is brilliantly situated to offer a variety of activities and attractions.

World Heritage Sites

The glamping site is only approximately 25 minutes from the mystical site of Glastonbury Tor and King Alfred's Tower. A similar distance away is Sherborne which has both its Old Castle and Sherborne Castle & Gardens. If you fancy venturing further afield we are well placed for day trips to the Roman Baths of the ancient city of Bath, plus West Bay & Weymouth along the Jurassic Coast are both within an hour's drive.

Cider

Long famed for its traditions of cider production, Somerset is home to some of the best-known and most colourful ciders in the world. To name just a few within reach of us; Orchard Pig in West Bradley near Glastonbury, the Somerset Cider Brandy Company at Burrow Hill and Perry's Cider Mills in Dowlish Wake.

Museums

We are just 5-10 minutes' drive down the road from the Haynes International Motor Musuem, the UK's largest collection of cars and historical "automobilia". Less than 15 minutes' drive away is the Fleet Air Arm Museum which exhibits an extensive collection of aviation artefacts including military and civilian aircraft as well as the first British prototype Concorde, 002, where visitors are invited to climb inside to see the cockpit first-hand.

Activities

A go-karting track is located adjacent to the nearby Haynes Motor Museum and paintball can also be found within a 10 minutes' drive of the site. There are also a range of activity equipment that we can arrange by request to be hired in externally to provide things on site such as climbing walls. Please enquire with us directly about hiring in activities.

Pubs & Restaurants

Our neck of the woods boasts many excellent pubs and restaurants should you wish to dine out during your stay with us. Our most local pub is the Sparkford Inn, a quaint and quiet village pub, well-appointed with two bar areas and a separate dining room with carvery. The nearby town of Castle Cary has a number of dine-in restaurants including traditional English as well as world cuisines plus you can now order food for delivery from our local caterer, please see further down the page for more details.
