Camping in Somerset

We have just come back from a short camping break in Somerset. It was our first holiday in a touring caravan. My husband towed the caravan brilliantly. He’s a very good driver anyway and he’d taken a caravan towing course.

We arrived at Waterrow Touring Park and were shown to our pitch. My better half backed onto the pitch with no problems. Everyone at the site was very friendly and the facilities were clean. Waterrow is situated in a beautiful rural setting and the River Tone is nearby. The scenery was just beautiful.

I had an enjoyable week attending an art course which was run at the camp site. The tutor was Kevin Middleton. The idea of the art course was to spend as much time as possible out of doors, drawing and painting. Unfortunately we had torrential rain for the entire week, so the course was spent in the art studio. The studio was a converted barn that was heated and had facilities for making hot drinks. There were eight students altogether and we covered a variety of topics. Many of the students are returners and us newbies intend to return.

Taunton is about half an hour away and Glastonbury about an hour away. In this area if towing the caravan don’t follow the satnav as it’ll take you down ever decreasing tracks. If you want to learn more about Waterrow site or the art course visit

  1. sounds like a beautiful experience.

  2. Wow. Love your paintings! Especially the far right one.

    • Hi Richard,
      Thanks. Nearly all the paintings by the other members of the course were better, but I learned lots of new things. The one on the right isn’t finished. It’s a pen and watercolour and I need to build up the colour and add more pen marks, but I really enjoyed doing it.

  3. Wow!Good art!Hope you had a great experience.
