‘We raise you up… high above the Levels…’. Be tuneful seeing the sights from Bowdens Crest Caravan & Camping Park, way way high above the Somerset Levels and the ancient market town of Langport – take a squint at that sunset pic for starters…
- Above the Somerset Levels with stunning views over 30 miles
- Twelve miles from Glastonbury and seven from Wells
- Bar and restaurant on site with a wide range of options
Views from budget-friendly Bowdens Crest include said Levels and its moors, the Quantock and Blackdown Hills, the River Parrett and the Vale of Taunton Dene, stretching out towards Brendon Hill and Exmoor – over 30 miles of Somerset surroundings can be seen from here on a clear day, all the way to Minehead. The small town of Langport is about a mile and a half away.
Bowdens Crest has a play area on site, on the edge of nine and a half acres of natural woodland where the kids can burn off suitable amounts of energy to let the grownups crack open the wine at sunset.
The site is high up, set on white lias stone with an eight-inch soil top (rock pegs are recommended for tents; if you don’t have your own you can buy them in the site shop).
Amemities include chemical disposal and a well-maintained toilet and shower block with separate ladies’ and gents’ sections, a disabled/family shower room and a family bath and shower room.
Washing-up sinks with free hot water are also available, and the games/information room has books, board games, DVDs, pool tables, football tables, games machines and several sockets to charge phones and other equipment free of charge.
The Alfie’s Bar & Bistro will fill grumbling times at breakfast, noon and dinner time from a menu of veggie options, kids’ picks and hefty roasts; while you’re mulling it all over, you could sip on one of the local ciders or ales on offer and taking in the views from the bar’s garden. On a clear day, you may just find it impossible to move yourself…
