The Owner Says

Pitches are carefully spaced out, level and well-drained, with beautiful mature trees and hedges dividing each area. These give shade in the warmer months and shelter in the rain. We have a large tent field with electric hook-ups and a landscaped BBQ communal area in the centre.

There is a separate paddock for family tents and those looking for a more private area of the campsite. We allow fires in this field using our fire pits and own locally sourced wood.

The farm is a working arable farm, with ‘Mad Apple Cider‘ being produced in our barns. Children and adults will enjoy watching the free range chickens and peacock on their daily jaunt around the site. There are small petting animals for children and new for 2016, a wooden climbing area in the large tent field.

Kilve beach is a 40 minute scenic walk away or a 5 minute drive. The Chantry tearooms provide a lovely pit stop for a cream tea, before or after searching in the rock pools or finding some fossils.  

The ‘Quantock’ hills can be directly accessed down a private farm lane to the picturesque Holford Village.  Wonderful historic walks, following in the footsteps of the poets, Wordsworth and Coleridge and picking up the Coleridge Way.

Our site is popular with mountain bikers as we have some of the best natural trails in the country.

There are two local pubs, both within walking distance. The Plough at Holford is a 15 minute walk which is great for a drink after a walk on the hills or a hearty evening meal. The Hood Arms in Kilve provides a scenic walk with views across the Bristol Channel to Wales. It has a family friendly beer garden and play area for the kids.  The local ale is not to be missed and will help on the walk back to the campsite!  Both pubs are dog friendly.

For day trips, The National Trust’s Dunster Castle and Gardens’ is a 30 minute drive away. The cobbled village with a wide range of local independent shops, galleries and cafe’s is perfect for a stroll.

The West Somerset Steam Train can be hopped on at Williton, a 10 minute drive away. Take the children on a trip to Minehead for a play on the beach and scrummy West Country Styles ice cream.

Porlock Weir is a favourite for crabbing and watching the world go by from Millers at the Anchor. Also Watchet with its antique and craft shops and delicious fish and chips to enjoy whist deciding which boat you would own in the harbour!

Many childhood memories are built in the local coomb’s at Holford. Building dams and paddling in the streams.  Take a picnic and then return to the site to toast marshmallows on the fire whilst enjoying a taste of the local cider.

Moorhouse is a small independent place to stay, ensconced by the beautiful countryside.  One not to be missed!

Great location - friendly helpful owners

We stayed for one night visiting the beautiful Quantocks. The campsite is spotlessly clean and quiet and has all the facilities you could need. The owners were absolutely lovely and recommended the nearby pub which does yummy food. Lots of walking routes from the door and accessible to the wonderful Kilve beach and surrounding hills and forests. Thank you so much for a fantastic stay!

Fabulous family campsite

We've just come back from a stay at Moorhouse Campsite. We went with a group of families, some of whom had never camped before, and had just a perfect camping experience. We camped in the large tent field, which includes the children's climbing frame and plenty of space for the children to run around in. The campsite itself has everything you need, with lovely little extras like farm animals to feed, guinea pigs to pet and sculptures to admire. There's so much to do with children in the local area we didn't know where to start. All finished off with toasting marshmallows over the fire. So good we've already booked to go again next year!

Fantastic, natural family campsite

We stayed in our tent with our 3 year old daughter for 2 weeks in June and loved our stay. Moorhouse is run by the very friendly and helpful Helena and Simon. The campsite facilities are kept clean and tidy and it is in a beautiful setting. Lots of pretty flowers and mature trees around the site. There are loads of places to visit for day trips (Helena always had a great suggestion!) and lots of local pubs to choose from. We enjoyed the pub within short walking distance for large and hearty portions! Our daughter loved visiting the resident cocker spaniel, chickens, ducks and donkeys on site every day. We especially loved the option to use the fire pits in the evening. We would highly recommend Moorhouse as a peaceful and natural natural family campsite.

Peaceful retreat close to home

We store our caravan at Moorhouse Farm as we only live down the road but choose to stay at the farm due to the peace and quiet we find there. Helena and Simon are very friendly and work so hard to make sure their guests have a great holiday. The pitches are really spacious and level. Many are demarcated by specimen trees and the site is full of well kept flowerbeds and immaculately kept grass. The toilet facilities are very clean and contain information boards that would be useful to visitors from further afield. The camping fields are flat and have fire pits which families love. Logs are supplied by the barrow load. When we have stayed we have seen children enjoying tractor and trailer rides round the site and petting the many animals that live there. I love being visited by the bantoms that roam around freely. There is lots to do within easy reach and some great walks that can be started at the site. The pubs in the area sell good food and welcome everyone. If we did not live down the road we would happily spend a week or two there. As we do, we will continue to spend weekends enjoying our caravan there and popping home to feed our pets. A really lovely site in a beautiful part of the world. Well worth a visit.

A wonderful stay in Somerset

We had a wonderful stay at Moorhouse. The site is really well-kept with brilliant facilities - powerful hot showers, a fridge, bbq area and lots of recycling and water points. We stayed in the tent field which has lots of space and great views. We loved having a fire in the firepit on a chilly bank holiday evening! We also highly recommend the delicious homemade cider. The site has a pub within walking distance down a pretty track. During our stay we walked to Kilve beach  (via the delightful Chantry tearooms) and went for a lovely walk over the Quantocks. Moorhouse was the nicest campsite we have stayed in so far and we're looking forward to going back already. Thank you Helena and Simon for such a great time.
