All-American vintage Airstreams on the banks of a Somerset river

If you want to look the part at Glamstreams pull on a pair of Levis, lace up your Converse and chuck a trucker’s cap on your head. Two all-American Airstream caravans will provide the backdrop to today’s vintage-filtered Instagram post. Two are the classic aluminium of a thousand movie cameos, while one is an unusual pearlescent blue. Found across the USA by owner Nick, and rescued from various states of disrepair, they're now parked up at Brookover Farm next to the vast Orchardleigh Estate, home to a golf course, a historic house and 500 acres of parkland. It's all-American accommodation in a very British spot.

Each van provides self-contained accommodation with a well-equipped kitchenette, a shower and an eco-friendly, waterless toilet. Beth sleeps up to five while Gloria, the dinkiest and older of the two, can still sleep a family with enough space for four. Linen and towels are provided along with a healthy dose of 60s and 70s style. Outside there’s seating and a fire pit and the vista from your van is across sheep-grazed fields and rolling hills; the soundtrack is of the Mells river babbling by. You can fish or set out on a walk on footpaths through the fields.

Frome, just two miles away, is home to the closest pubs, independent shops and a thriving market scene. You can reach the town on foot or set out in the other direction to explore Orchardleigh’s parkland (the house and gardens are not open to the public). Further afield, but not far, there’s an even grander estate that’s worth a visit: Longleat with its house, gardens and famous drive-through safari park that offers a taste of life on the plains, complete with lions, tigers and elephants. When you’ve finished your African encounter, it’ll be back to your American base in the best-of-British countryside. Three continents in one day... not bad for a holiday in Somerset.

Nearby

There are great walking routes right from the farm, offering peaceful walks with stunning views. A route that's good for walkers and, especially, cyclists is the 18-mile Collier's Way cycle path that links to Mells in one direction and Radstock in the other. Yoga sessions are also available – contact the site directly to book in. For golfers, there's the 18-hole Orchardleigh Golf Course (01373 454200), right next door. In nearby Frome, just two miles from Glamstreams, you can stroll along lanes and cobbled streets, and check out the many independent shops, cafes and pubs. The Frome Independent Market is huge, and attracts a fabulously eclectic bunch of stall holders on the first Sunday of every month. For live music and events check out what's going on at Cheese and Grain ahead of your stay. Within 30 minutes’ drive you’ll find the pretty town of Bruton, with attractions including Hauser and Wirth Art Gallery and some great places to eat (see below), the stunning Georgian city of Bath and the renowned Longleat Safari Park. Further afield, Cheddar Gorge, the city of Bristol, Avalon Marshes wildlife centre (01458 860556), the famous festival town of Glastonbury, Stonehenge, The Hawk Conservancy Trust (01264 773850) and Haynes International Museum (01963 440 804) are all within an hour's drive.

Food & Drink

Nick recommends At The Chapel (01749 814070), a restaurant, bakery and winestore in Bruton, 13 miles from Glamstreams and The Roth Bar and Grill by the Hauser and Wirth Art Gallery (01749 814700) in the same town, which is also a good place to pick up the locally-produced Godminster cheeses as they have a shop on the high street. Closer to site, the last-Sunday-of-the-month Frome Independent Market has a large food element if you're lucky enough to catch it and there's a more regular market in Frome every Wednesday and Saturday morning too. Try The Artisan (01373 300102) in town for somewhere to eat and drink while you're out.

The Owner Says

A stay in a luxury GlamStreams Airstream caravan at Brookover Farm is the best of all worlds. The Airstreams are fully fitted with kitchen, bathroom, heating, linens, etc, so it's a level way above canvas camping. And yet, the glorious riverside setting of the site means that you literally step out into nature from your front door. Sleeping in Nature, without sleeping on the ground.

Brookover Farm is tucked away along a private drive in the Mells River valley, just outside the buzzing town of Frome. Set deep in gorgeous Somerset countryside, on a private estate, sheep and horses abound and it’s the perfect place for you and the family to unwind. All the Airstreams have their own river frontage,  fishing is definitely on the agenda. With fire pits, private outside seating areas, and stunning views at every turn, GlamStreams Glamping offers you the best of glamping this summer.

You can cook in your fully-fitted Airstream kitchen, or you could take advantage of the many catering options, from Indian Thali to French brasserie dishes, and local farm shops. .

There are great walking routes right from the farm, and a link to the cycle path that runs from Mells and Radstock. Golfers will doubtless head over the hill to the fabulous 18 hole Orchardleigh Golf Course, right next door.

And Brookover Farm is the perfect location for visiting the area, from nearby Frome with its cobbled streets, markets and funky independent shops and bars, to the world-famous Longleat Safari Park.

Getting There

From Frome or the A361, take the A362 towards Radstock. After about two miles, just after the road crosses the River Mells, you will see the grand gateway into the Orcahrdleigh Estate. Turn right here and instead of driving through the ornate gates, take the right fork signposted for Brookover Farm.

The nearest railway station is in Frome, just over two miles away. From there you could take a taxi for the remaining part of the journey (book in advance).

Wow! Amazing glamping!

We booked the airstreams with another family for the bank holiday weekend with no real expectation apart from a chance to get away before schools etc start up again. Finding our destination we came through the gate and see the airstreams across the field….wow! The set up looked amazing! Nick was there when we arrived giving us a run through of everything and answering any questions we had. The airstreams were wonderful and the bbq area was perfect for our group, we spent most of our time relaxing and enjoying the fresh air. We launched our paddleboard on the river the set up ball games in the field. We found a lovely walk around the golf club and went into Frome (beautiful) and further afield Glastonbury and Wells. Perfectly located with lots to do! A real treat and totally recommend to anyone who wants a glamping experience…..just wish it wasn’t so far away from where we live! Fabulous set up Nick, thank you!

Cool, comfortable, well equipped and in a beautiful setting.

We hired both Beth & Gloria with friends for 5 days and had a great time. It’s so well set up outside with the bbq area between the two Airstreams and inside, each one is well kitted out with everything you could possibly need. They’re surprisingly spacious and well designed - the kids loved the starry ceilings and disco lights! We literally turned up and immediately relaxed into our holiday without the need for any faffing! It was lovely to have our own private campsite where we could let the children (3 of them aged between 2-4) run around and play games. We were lucky enough to see the otter catching fish in the river and was lovely to have the horses grazing beside us. We cooked and ate outside every night - it’s so good that the tables are sheltered by the Airstreams - and the fire pits were great for toasting marshmallows. Nick is a great host; he said he’d be there if we needed anything and he was, popping round within minutes to answer our questions and give us some great tips of things to do and visit nearby. Can’t recommend it enough - perfect place to switch off, enjoy the outdoors stress free and have fun!

Beautiful site and comfortable accommodation

We have just had a wonderful 5 days in Beth The Blue. The site is beautiful with the river right on your doorstep. Our 9 year old had a wonderful time in his dinghy on the river and playing camp games on the site. The firepit was an added bonus as having the campfire experience was great fun and many marshmallows were toasted! Nick is a great host, always helpful and accommodating, nothing is too much hassle. The regular deliveries of firewood and him being so responsive was very welcome. The airstream was beautifully refurbished and provided a lovely, comfortable and cosy base for all our activities. A great time was had by all and we would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

The best glamping trip of the year

This has been one of the best glamping trips we've done so far! The location is superb with the nearest town (Frome) only being 2 miles from the site. Not only is the area spacious with it being adjacent to a quiet field but you can also hear the flow of the river in the background The Airstreams were chic and cozy with its own patio and the bbq area is a very good communal space with a firepit if you need it. Nick (the owner) is very easy to contact and was happy to help with any issues we'd need if there was any. The kids slept well and woke up with lots of energy to play around. All in all, this has been a memorable experience. We've already recommended it to friends and family.

Lovely place lovely people!

We stayed with Glamstreams last week and had such a lovely time! The airstream is very comfy and I slept like a baby on the memory foam mattress. We usually camp in a bell tent - but what luxury to not have to set anything up! We rocked up on the friday with our suitcases and within minutes had a cocktail prepared and were ready to settle in to relax. We had a lovely long walk around the beautiful farm and then settled in for an evening by the fire. Nick is lovely and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend Glamstreams highly. In fact i have and my brother and sister in law are staying this week!
