Kingsettle Camping Retreat is a quiet, ecologically run, seven acre campsite hidden beneath King Alfreds tower on the edge of beautiful Somerset where it meets with Dorset and Wiltshire, just five miles from the A303.

As an area of outstanding natural beauty we offer a retreat for just one night or your entire holiday. A place to enjoy nature in a relaxed atmosphere, a glorious sunset on sunny days and the opportunity to toast marshmallows over a camp fire, under a canopy of stars.

We welcome families in the upper section of the site with an adjoining play area, where children can kick a ball around freely without disturbing you or your neighbours. The lower section of the site is ideal for adults who just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Well behaved quiet dogs on request only as numbers are restricted on site (please request when making an enquiry)

Kingsettle Camping Retreat also offers the chance to enjoy time away, without the stress of packing to camp or the pitching of tents or vans, please enquire about our beautifully renovated Cattle trailer (Daisy) ready now, max. head height 5’11” sleeps 1 to 2 adults. Or our large hand crafted traditional Shepherds Hut (Gabriel) sleeps 2 adults and one child.

Camping open from 16th April to 16th September

Shepherds Hut and Trailer open from 16th March to 16th October

Kingsettle Campsite is run by Jenny Pepper who grew up on this former small dairy farm.
