Nestled into the South Coast Countryside in South Somerset, bordering both Devon and Dorset Counties is this unique rural camping and caravanning touring park. This quiet, level oak woodland site is set in 8.5 acres of parkland with pitches naturally screened by rhododendrons amongst the mature oaks, beeches and birches. Alpine Grove Touring Park is a small family run site, with emphasis on hospitality and friendly approach.
For Tents there are ample camping pitches on the campsite where the feeling of seclusion, amongst totally natural settings and abundant wildlife of both flora and fauna, is to be enjoyed.
For campers with Motor Homes and Caravans, hard standing is available on naturally draining level pitches arranged in an arc with the freedom to erect awnings.
Folding Campers and Trailer Tents are positioned amongst the touring park.
With many of the above pitches serviced with electric, campers are encouraged to pitch anywhere they please to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere which allows them to escape the trappings of modern life.
Some pitches are bathed in sunshine whilst others enjoy gentle shading from the leaf canopy of these magnificent oaks. Picnic benches are arranged around the site for eating al-fresco and are ideal for picnics and barbecues.
Friendly Dogs are welcome, on leads.
The newly refurbished and extended modern single amenity block is clean with free hot water, hand basins, shaver points, hand and hair dryer and laundry facilities plus both hand washing and dishwashing sinks. We also have a disabled/ family bathroom.
Recycling and refuse bins, chemical disposal point and waste water disposal are all nearby with fresh water taps dotted around the site.
The combined reception and small shop stocks most provisions and displays local information/ leaflets on the many local attractions. We stock local produce e.g free range eggs, bacon, sausages, honey, bread, cakes and milk. Camping Gaz and Calor Gas and Freezer packs are also available. The historic town of Chard is only 2 miles away (the birthplace of powered flight).
With 3 different customs and traditions of the 3 adjoining counties of South Somerset, Dorset and Devon there is plenty to see and enjoy.
The South Coast, Lyme Regis, is only 20 minutes away with its famous picturesque Cobb, beach and world renowned fossil beaches.
Cricket St. Thomas Wildlife Park is only 2 miles away offering a superb wildlife experience to all the family.
Forde Abbey (one of the top 10 gardens in the country) is only 2.5 miles away and in the summer, fruit picking is not to be missed.
At the beach resort of Seaton (25 minutes away) is a tramway.
Also nearby is the National Trust Montacute House.
And for adventure, Diggerland offers a real JCB experience.
For cyclists, either follow the level cycle network path to Illminster or for the fit and healthy perhaps try the 80 mile South Somerset circular cycle route which travels past the campsite.
For walkers and dog owners, a public footpath on the Eastern boundary of the Camping and Caravanning site runs North towards Chard Reservoir Nature Reserve, where fishing permits are available, and South towards Perry Street and the nearest pub just over 1 mile away for good food and drink. Two circular walks from the campsite enjoy different scenery and are easy enough for the smaller family members.
