While on our recent hols, called into "Thorney Lakes" campsite. It's on the Somerset levels right where the massive floods were earlier in the year.

Very large flat field with the cleanest and best toilets and showers we ever seen on a campsite !!! Just the place for kids / grandkids / dogs to run around like mad things. Only downside is that there is no footpath to the nearby village so it's either a walk via an overgrown riverpath or maybe a bike ride down the country road. The road is normal B road so plenty of room for MHs to get there.

Have a look at their website www.thorneylakes.co.uk.

The outstanding feature of the place is the lakes. We were told to take a walk down there early evening. You walk between fields of corn, must be 10 minute walk then you arrive at the lakes area. Did you ever read Enid Blyton when you were little ? The Famous Five would find a magical glade in a forest and you saw it in your minds eye ? It's here in real life !! Huge trees around beautiful lakes, the grass on the walks is mown, there are little wooden bridges to cross, birds everywhere. We truly expected to see a pixie on a toadstool round every corner !! So peaceful and enchanting !!

Hi

I thought the heading was best campsites for chilling out . How chilled out were your campsite neighbours with your kids / grand kids and dogs running about like mad things ?

Love Thorneylakes, it's the only campsite we return to every year. The dog walks are great, the lakes, guinea fowl and resident heron always make me feel good. We go either May or September so either parked under blossom or apples, were back September this year.(y)

Well, we did not have kids / grandkids or dogs with us, but to see any of those having fun in a magical, safe environment would chill us out no end.
