    Several people have been asking about camping in Glastonbury, try this site ... a working smallholding which is run by two lovely people ... Drinking water and elsan point emptier there ... no EHU .

    Within a ten minute walk of the town centre and lots of peace and space around you. See photo of me.

    That looks nice, we are going that way in a couple of weeks but staying on the old oaks, bit expensive but wanted to try it out. Where is that one Joy or PM me the location if it's not ok to post up on here. And let me know of a good pub in Glastonbury that does good pub food and good beer. We plan to walk into there for a beer or two. Shame you were not there then could have met up for a beer. (y)

    The old oaks at Glastonbury have a minibus which calls every day except Sunday's and goes to places such as Wells, Street (for Clarks village) and Glastonbury itself, also a couple of evening trips to Glastonbury for those who want to go out for a meal or a few beers.
    Fantastic site ( the toilet block is the best you will find anywhere), it is expensive but this is the site you will compare all others to.

    Hi, where is this site, we often visit Glastonbury. We stay at Glastonbury Cottages and Camping, situated at the bottom of the Tor. Just nice to know that there is somewhere else we can use.

    Another site which is within staggering distance of Glastonburys pubs is The Isle of Avalon site, it is quite a few years since we stayed there but it is a short walk to Glastonbury centre, hard standings are available and a well stocked shop

    We live between Wells and Glastonbury. Never stopped at Avalon but driven past it many times. Not our cup of tea, always seems to be busy, I suspect with loads of " long stay" campers.
    Two sites I can recommend are Greenachers camping site between Glasto and North Wooten. On the somerset levels, Does not allow caravans but is ok for small motorhomes. Easy cycling to Glasto. See
    http://www.greenacres-camping.co.uk

    The other is a much improved site on the edge of Wells. Wells Holiday Park. Great site, easy cycling across levels to Glsto. See. http://wellsholidaypark.co.uk

    Regards. :happy:

    Hope you do get a free night at Old Oak I just priced one night for us (3 adults plus dog) £37.85 in 2nd cheapest periods and £46.85!! For high season.
    Have stayed at Isle of Avalon twice but not for a couple of years and was very well run, clean and oh so convenient to walk into town. Don't remember any 'long term campers' when we went I think there were some vans there which people kept there for holidays.

    Yes, I've been looking at this site as Glastonbury has been on the list for a long time......I can't actually see how the free night works. It's mentioned that you can have one, with a link for more infor but that just takes you to the offers page and I can't see any further mention of how it works......(yes I have me specs on) hope someone can clarify? It looks very nice with the views.......:)

    To get the free night you have to ring and book and mention it, think there is a code on there website. you get the cheapest night free.

    We wildcamp use Aires and sites whichever is convenient but at £46.85 (3 plus dog) for Old Oak would break our previous most expensive record which was in Sienna!

    Oh you're not running those witches courses again Joy, haven't you passed on enough of your witches wisdom over the years?

    Couldn't teach mine how to fly her broom-stick without crashing could you? :wink:

    So glad you found somewhere you liked @movan , especially with everything else going on around you; a lovely little sanctuary by the look of it.
