Our immaculate two acre site is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is therefore surrounded by Forestry Commission woods and amenity areas. This makes it ideal for walking and cycling, as well as bird watching, or simply for relaxing.

The area has many other attractions including, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, National Trust properties, Longleat, Fleet Air Museum, and cider farms. Sports fans will find golf, horse riding and fishing all within a 2 mile radius, and with two sports centres less than 5 miles away.

Holly Bush Park prides itself as a peaceful retreat for campers and caravaners alike. The 2 acre site has space for up to 40 caravans, motorhomes and tents. It has good access via a wide gateway onto tarmac roads which lead directly to level grassed pitches, many with hard standings. Most pitches are served by electric hook-ups and there are standpipes for water across the site.

I would recommend this site

I've just spent 2 weeks at Holly Bush Park. It's situated 5 miles south of Taunton and very near to Taunton Racecourse and is ideally placed for getting out and about as it's very near the M5 and A303.

The site is small and informally laid out, with 40 pitches, and includes some seasonal caravans. It takes tents, as well as motorhomes and touring caravans and while we were there, a few horsedrawn 'gypsy' caravans stayed overnight a couple of times.

The toilet and shower block has 3 showers in the ladies and 3 in the gents, and can accommodate disabled people. It was clean and adequate.

There is a washing up area with 2 sinks, and a laundry room with a washing machine, tumble drier, ironing board and iron, and also a rotary clothes line outside.

There is a little shop on site which sells the basics, plus lovely ice cream.

The site is owned by a lovely young couple, Rachel and Gary, who will go out of their way to be helpful. They keep a good supply of local maps and leaflets of local attractions and on our arrival with our 3 Border Collies, we were given a printed sheet listing lots of nice places where we could walk the dogs and let them swim, most of which we would never have found ourselves as they were quite off of the beaten track.

There is no dog walk on the site, but almost immediately opposite the gate is Forestry Commission land which is ideal for their first walk in the morning and last walk at night, and there are loads of places locally where you can take the dogs. The Blackdown Hills are a 10 minute drive away and the dogs can run for miles up there. A half hour walk (or 10 minute drive away) is a lovely lake where they can swim.

Rachel also told us about the local dog-friendly pubs, one of which is right next door to the camp site. (I've given restaurant 10 stars in the rating because of this pub which does fantastic food - HUGE portions!)

I would recommend this site to anyone with dogs. Rachel and Gary have 3 dogs of their own which live on the site, and they are certainly not the sort of people who would tell you 'one bark from your dogs and you're off' like some sites that say 'dogs welcome'.
