Located on the edge of the Quantock Hills AONB, Quantock Camping sits on a beautifully landscaped four-acre site which is just a short 1 mile walk from the local pub and 10 miles from the Somerset coast.

The campsite features 16 serviced hard standing caravan pitches, cabins and huts which are ideal for camping and glamping, camping and touring paddocks as well as a four-bedroom detached farmhouse which has been recently renovated to a high standard.

The site also includes several outbuildings including an American-style barn and stables, workshop and two storey double garage which can be converted into additional accommodation, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

The business has been owned and run by Terry and Jane Ayre for the last 12 years, who are now seeking retirement. They comment, “Having thoroughly enjoyed developing the site, we are now in our mid-70s and are ready to retire. We were first attracted to the house because of the private setting and its proximity to, and views of, the Quantock Hills, whilst still providing easy access to Taunton and the M5.

“We have a large proportion of repeat customers, and they particularly love how green the site is and the fact they can walk the public footpath to the local pub and the hills. We also have horses and have found the outriding to be second to none.”

Matthew McFarlane, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “It is a pleasure to be instructed to sell such a fabulous home and business in a beautiful part of Somerset. Nestled on the edge of the Quantock Hills and not too far from the coast, it makes for a perfect opportunity for a buyer looking for a more relaxed lifestyle change alongside a well-established tourism business.”
