Things to do in the

Local Area

Leaving behind the heady scent of apple blossom on site, the local area is one of England's most vibrant destinations and demands to be explored. World-famous Glastonbury is just down the road – home to the iconic festival, it's also arguably the nation's epicentre of all things spiritual. The Chalice Well, Glastonbury Tor and the myriad spots associated with Arthurian legend are essential visits.

The Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels make for fantastic rambles – in fact the whole region is eminently explorable on foot, with a walking path linking to many of the surrounding villages and Coombe Hill leaving directly from the orchard. Moreover, the coastal resorts of Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea are less than an hour's drive away.

Then again, you may opt for life back at camp, enjoying a chilled glass of Somerset cider sourced from the very same trees. chilled glass of Somerset cider sourced from the very same trees.
