    Hi all
    Does anyone know of a site that we can stay for 7 days over Christmas. Our only needs are a toilet/shower block and ehu.
    We are visiting our daughter in Taunton so it can be up to 10 miles away.

    Cornish farm where we normally stay are taking a break over Christmas before anyone suggests it.
    Any suggestions considered :thumb:

    Don't be tempted by Holly Bush Park.
    We stayed there 2 years running during cold weather both times.
    First year water supplies were frozen up with just one very slow tap in the laundry room.
    Our consolation was the charming Olde Worlde pub up the road.
    2nd year was worse. Owners were uncaring, pitch was in deep snow and invisible. Water again rubbish and prices had gone up £4 pn above the advertised price.
    The pub had bombed was freezing cold and only one beer for sale.

    Never been here, but when I lived up that neck of the woods, they seemed to have always been busy all year, and had something going on around christmas time. Seemed pretty busy place.

    You'll be around 15-20mins from Taunton.

    Christmas 2009 and 2010.

    Up to May this year (2012) the pub was still under refurbishment.

    Check out UKCampsites for reviews which appear ok, but....

    BTW the shower block was very cold and the water, if available, was not very warm.
