Eating and Drinking

Local pubs and restaurants:

The Maypole Inn

The Maypole Inn is a 5-10 minute drive from the Yurts, it serves traditional pub food using locally produced Somerset meat and seasonal vegetables wherever possible. They do a great Sunday roast. Call 01823 412286 to book. Further information on their website:

The Merry Monk

About 2 miles down the hill and left at the main road this pub is easy to get to from the Yurts - carvery set up rather than a restaurant.

Il Basilico

Found down the hill in the local village, just a stone’s throw from the farm, Il Basilico is an Italian Resturant with great reviews. Ring 01823 412414 to make a booking.

The New Mill

We're fans of The New Mill, 5-10 min drive from the Yurts in a neighboring village 'Bathpool' - it's been good pub restaurant food whenever we've visited with our family. Part of a larger chain - link to their site is here

Local supermarkets:





Pyne’s of Somerset

Award winning butcher with a fantastic deli and fishmongers, just off J24 of the M5 – perfect for stocking up on BBQ fodder at the yurts!

Thurloxton Fruit Growers

Lovely PYO just a couple of miles from the yurts – a great activity to do with children during the Summer months.

We had no idea what a treat we were in for, this is glamping at its absolute – yet affordable – best
