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. The extensive meadow that occupies the centre of the site is left for the wildlife and provides you with a feeling of space and privacy.

We welcome older families in the upper section of the site. 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 selected pitches only.
Although quiet rural sounds of animals or machinery may be heard during your stay.

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

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.

An ideal place from which to explore many local attractions, including:

We are also close to various market towns including Frome, Sherborne and Shaftesbury. The City of Wells is half an hour away, The City of Bath is one hour as is Stonehenge. Slightly longer will get you to the coast.

If you want to escape the campfire enjoy a long walk or a short drive to many local pubs including The Old Red Lion at North Brewham.
