The Owner Says
READ THE ESSENTIAL INFORMATION FOR CAMPERS BEFORE BOOKING and FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS (SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE) CAREFULLY TO AVOID DISTURBING OUR NEIGHBOURS
ESSENTIAL INFORMATION FOR CAMPERS
Facilities are very basic - sinks with cold drinking water, compost toilets and private cubicles for bucket washing (no showers), but it’s very beautiful and you can have a campfire (in the pits provided only). We have firewood available to buy. Pay for car parking as an extra if you drive here - it costs the same as one person per night.
GETTING HERE - VERY IMPORTANT: Directions to our site are at the bottom of this page. Our neighbours don't like to be disturbed so please follow the directions carefully and make sure that everyone travelling to the site has a copy.
YOUR PITCH: Make note of which number pitch you have booked. You will need to know this so you can find your pitch when you arrive. Please also make sure your tent will fit into the pitch you book.
WASTE! We ask campers to take their non-compostable waste home with them, both landfill and recyclables. Access for the business waste collection and recycling trucks is difficult and we haven’t been able to find anyone who can collect it. We welcome all food waste onsite - even meat and dairy - as we have some wormeries to turn it into lovely compost. So please leave it in one of our food waste containers. We would be delighted if you would help us with this. Thank you!!!
COMPOST TOILET: Please read the instructions in the compost toilet carefully – and follow them.
OUR NEIGHBOURS: When you are exploring the area please don't continue along the private road past the gate to our field - it only leads to our neighbours - the ones that don't want to be disturbed! There are lovely walks if you go down the hill from our gate.
FIREWOOD: Fires are only permitted in the firepits provided - see Terms and Conditions for more info. You are welcome to help yourself and pay later, (please return the empty bag to the shelter so we can reuse it).
PARKING: Please pay for a parking place from the extras menu if you're driving here. Is costs the same as one person per night. You can’t drive right up to the sites, but we do have a wheelbarrow you can use to move your stuff.
NOISE: Please be considerate of other people on the site. Quiet time starts at 10pm – do stay up late and enjoy a fire into the night if you wish, but be sure to keep the noise right down after 10pm so other people can sleep. We don’t allow amplified music.
DOGS: Sorry, no dogs.
We look forward to meeting you!
It is essential to follow DIRECTIONS to Vallis Veg, you can find them here:
Important: please note that we are Vallis Veg, not Vallis Farm.
From Frome: Follow the A362 West through Frome, past a graveyard on the left and then a row of shops on the right. Then take the first exit at the mini roundabout. Continue over the crest of the hill and down the hill out of town. Take the first right onto Elm Lane.
After 200m the road turns sharply left, but you need to go straight on over the old cattle grid (past the Vallis Farm sign but please don’t go to Vallis Farm) and start going up the private road. You will pass a small car parking area on your right, and go up the short, steep hill. Look out for our Vallis Veg sign hanging in a tree by our gate. Before you get to the cottages at the top of the hill turn right through the gate (with the sign the tree). Please don’t go past the cottages, the neighbours don’t like people to go beyond our gate.
Do call if you have any trouble finding us.

About Vallis Veg
Suitable ForTents only (sometimes the odd, small campervan is allowed), couples, families, groups (in their own field) – yes. Caravans, motorhomes, noisey folk, dogs – no.
NearbyIt's a short and pleasant walk to Frome (01373 465757), its compact size belying the range of activities on offer. There are two theatres, ample pubs and cafés, a cinema, several great music venues, a museum and more. Head to the library for tourist information. On the first Sunday of each month The Independent Markethas become a bit of a draw – a colourful and eclectic range of stalls with a buzzing atmosphere. In the very centre of town, the innovative Share Shop sometimes runs free craft workshops (though it's worth a visit anyway). Elsewhere, walkers can head in the opposite direction treading the East Mendip Way to a beautiful bridge at Great Elm. From here you can either carry on to the village of Mells, or join the Macmillan Way south towards Whatley – home of The Grange cookery school (01373 836522) – and on to Nunney, with its own castle (03703 331181), a fab pub (01373 836458) and a small café.
Food & DrinkThe campsite can sometimes sell veg or other farm produce direct to campers, just ask what’s available when you arrive. There are endless independent shops in Frome, including two butchers in Badcox. H.E. Williams (01373 462797), which is down a little side street and whose family has run the business for approaching 100 years, is a great option, while Cayfords (01373 462701), again a long term family-run affair, is another great choice. Both are about 20 minutes’ walk from the site and on the way into town. For pubs, The Griffin (01373 467766), on Milk Street, often has live music and games nights and hosts a microbrewery onsite. The Three Swans (01488 682721) is at the top of Cheap Street and is also very popular. The Lamb and Fountain (01373 463414) at the bottom end of Castle Street is a third pick, wonderfully unpretentious and a little more undiscovered.
