Kittisford Barton – Glamping Holidays and Luxury Camping in Somerset
Kittisford Barton is set amongst the stunning scenery of Somerset, just half an hour west of Taunton. Though surrounded by unspoilt countryside, the site is just 10 minutes from junction 26 of the M5, making it easily accessible and well located for local amenities.
Lantern & Larks have chosen this secluded spot on the Somerset-Devon border as one that oozes peace and tranquility. With the Blackdown Hills AONB creating an incredible backdrop, Kittisford Barton is spoilt for choice when it comes to country walks and patchwork scenery. The organic farm alone is 260 acres of ponds, woodlands, fields and trails for keen adventurers to wander. Guests to the site will be able to see the farm’s animal inhabitants, meet the friendly goats or collect eggs from the chickens that live in the orchard – a firm favourite with all ages!
Further afield there is even more on offer. Grab a map of the local area provided on site and venture into the countryside. You are in a prime position for spotting local wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled for deer and an endless supply of birdlife. Join one of the many walking routes crisscrossing the Blackdown Hills and immerse yourself in the wooded valleys or riverside scenery. An ongoing programme of events means there is always something going on to take your fancy.
From Kittisford Barton you can easily explore the coastal areas of Devon and Somerset. Within an hour from your base you will find the golden sands of family-friendly Minehead or the saltmarshes of Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve, a haven for waders and waterfowl located at the mouth of the River Parrett. The south coast offers Sidmouth’s popular sandy beach and the famous coastal town of Lyme Regis which is loved for its stunning location amongst the iconic Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
You won’t be short of places to visit. Somerset is a haven for gentle country walks, quiet evenings and peaceful wildlife, but you’re never too far from civilisation either. If you fancy getting back to the city for a while Taunton and Exeter are both an easy drive away and offer a fantastic range of retail centres, independent shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and attractions. Staying closer to home you will also find a handful of towns and villages to explore such as Appley and Wiveliscombe, so if you need to grab a few essentials, you needn’t worry!
From our Somerset glamping site you can also reach Exmoor, Brean and Weston Super Mare. If you’re interested in local history then Bath is reachable by car and you can pay a visit to in infamous Cheddar Gorge which is also nearby.
