Nice site, well appointed, 3/4 mile walk off the site to Glastonbury Tor.
Met two Eriba-ists one with a Puck L (from Bath) and a Troll owner.

Yes we enjoyed it there at the end of August. We rented two bikes for 5 hours and did the Somerset Levels. Only problem was there were also a few hills
Fabulous facilities on the camp site.

No mention of the price, you chaps.

Come on, spill the beans - but be sure to advise any financially sensitive Northerners to sit down before they read it.

It's no good asking Rodders. He went with so many freebies, discounts, vouchers and coupons that he walked out having made a profit.

£27/night. OK that's a lot against out of season ACSI prices but you do get free "in caravan" wifi for 2 computers and 15amp lecci so all your cooking can be done without using gas and you get an extremely large level hardstand emplacement for your car, caravan and awning and you get your own private lawn and a private washroom if you arrive at the toilet block at the right time.
We really enjoyed being pampered.

We paid £15 per night and have a free voucher for "next time"
The underfloor heating in the Uni-sex bathrooms was very nice,
The "Gents" showers were very good, the shop sold a decent
selection of wines, the fishing lake had fish in it, but best of all
was just walking out the back of the site and either going to the Tor
or walking on into Glastonbury.
The garden at the Bishops palace, the reclaimation yard with an
ant-aircraft gun just inside its gate, Tesco ,Morrisons, and of course RSPB Ham Wall

What!!!! Did you buy it? I thought most caravanners used this:

or is that just for ants that fly Zeros?

'Course you realise that the chap with the long wooden nose almost owns TOO.

Gad he's even spent several Chrismasses there and if you break into their storage yard you'll see his 540 with its molectric Fiamma awning (posh), a little covered in bird poo but there all the same.

Erm, excuse moi. That be me you talkin' 'bout. 'Tis true though - it is stored there but only until Sunday, when it will glide gracefully back up the M5 and the M6 to Knutters. Welcome aboard Puss. Good to have you with us . . . I think.

Top Oaks 2 gets our vote. Closer to the new shower block and for those who haven't visited Old Oaks, the nearest pitches behind the camera are approx.100 yards away.

I just mentioned SDA and the red seas parted at The Old Oaks
Unfortunately I still had to pay .....
We have had two outings (at the cheaper rates Pete) at the oaks,
Christmas shopping for the old hippies I know.
