Occasions at the Old Summer Dairy

A unique opportunity to create a holiday or event to suit all occasions in a very special location.

The location allows guests to get away from it all and connect with each other and nature with peace and quiet in mind. This would suit Families who want to spend time together having old fashioned fun. Or for those on a Retreat where quiet contemplation and reflection around the campfire is required. It is also suitable for Birthdays or Hen or Hag Parties or other larger Gathering. The place is very safe for young children as there are no roads nearby, just fields. There is space too for family games and activities. Our fields give access to nearby walks by the river where wild swimming takes place on sunny days, the orchards and to the village, shop and great local pub.

Larger parties can also hire the Bell tents and Cabin together as they are relatively near to each other which would mean the whole site is entirely yours.

We are happy to discuss individual requirements to ensure the event is exclusively yours and everything you have dreamt of!

Anniversaries, Family reunions or Friends reuniting are all possibilities due to the flexible nature of the location and we can discuss any special requirements necessary. As the land around has been set up as a nature reserve this lends another dimension to the area and may be of special interest to some visitors. This is the reason for our ‘no dogs’ policy.

Glastonbury Festival week allows us to offer an ‘off site’ boutique Glamping experience within easy reach of the Bath and West Park and Ride facility. The Festival site at Pilton is only 5 miles away.
Please note tickets for the Festival must be bought separately.

We also have various contacts who can provide speciality cakes, general provisions or catering such as Hog/Lamb/Beef roasts or BBQ’s for larger numbers. We can provide Hampers or other speciality gifts on request. We also have a list of suggested activities for Hen parties too.

Please contact us if you wish to discuss an Event which cannot be booked directly on our Booking Page or to discuss specific requirements. We want all our Guests to have an experience to remember.

Please Note – If outside caterers are hired, please ensure that they remove all food waste rather than leave it for us to deal with.
