Caravans and Camp Sites in Chard, Somerset
Caravan and camping holidays have come a long way in recent years! A little preparation can make them an economical holiday to please the parents and an adventure to please the kids.
Alpine Grove Touring Park
Alpine Grove Touring Park lies close to the Devon and Dorset border. Just a short drive from many local tourist attractions, with a Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award.
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 & Trailer Tents are positioned amongst the touring park. With many 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. Picnic benches are arranged around the site for al-fresco eating and are ideal for picnics & barbecues.
The newly refurbished and extended modern single amenity block is clean with free hot water, hand basins, shaver points, hand & hair dryer and laundry facilities plus both hand washing and dishwashing sinks. We also have a disabled/ family bathroom. For the perfect family friendly atmosphere, children are occupied with a play area and a giant trampoline complete with safety enclosure netting, plus the abundance of safe cycle and walking tracks within the park to explore and play safely. Cycle Hire is available to explore the Chard to Ilminster cycle path (on the old railway line). The woods are great for den building. Try and complete the scavenger trail and receive a prize.
Recycling and refuse bins, chemical disposal point and waste water disposal are all nearby with fresh water taps dotted around the site. The recently refurbished outdoor heated swimming pool is situated in a sun trap. The pool surround is furnished with sun loungers, tables & chairs. The on site shop stocks goggles, arm bands and rubber rings. There is also an adult only swim time to tone up the muscles. The combined reception & 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, milk. Camping Gaz and Calor Gas and Freezer packs are also available.
