About

 

Camping may be the coolest way to get reacquainted with Mother Nature, but there’s no denying it can sometimes be challenging. If your last experience includes pitching up in the pouring rain only to realise you’ve forgotten to pack the pegs, or tossing and turning through the night tormented by the metal drain you unintentionally pitched on (yes, this actually happened), then perhaps it’s time to add a touch of comfort to your camping. And we know just the place.....


Secret Valley is situated on the lush hilly landscape of Cobbs Cross, a 400 acre organic farm and vineyard that teems with rural charm and livestock. The animals here are not just for show, the chickens lay eggs, the cows graze and the miniature donkeys… well, okay, maybe the miniature donkeys and alpacas are for show, but what a lovely treat (especially for the kids) to sleep a stone's throw from them!


As for the details; suffice to say the facilities are excellent. However, glampers do have the arduous task of choosing which form of accommodation to go for. Wigwam? Shepherds Hut? Tipi? Yurt? Lodge? Belle Tent? They are all here, with each thoughtfully furnished, both on the inside and out. Guests are invited to use the site's many facilities at their leisure, with excellent hot showers, proper flushing toilets, two fully equipped kitchens and dining rooms, hand made Scandinavian wood-fired hot tubs, two look-out huts providing stunning views and Wi-Fi all nice little touches that makes your stay extra comfortable.

 

Secret Valley suits both adventure chasers as well as peace and quiet seekers. The Famous Farmer John Farm Tour to the array of Onsite Outdoor Activities we have available. Whether you enjoy the adrenaline of being high up in the trees on the high ropes course to adding another string to your bow competing in Archery. Whilst there is always time to sit back. Put your feet up. Admire the view and enjoy a D.I.Y Wine Tasting from the vineyard at your own leisure. 


The beauty that can be found in Somerset is no secret. Every year thousands of tourists come to walk the hills, breathe the fresh air and take in the exceptional views. Secret Valley sits high in the Quantock Hills, a diverse region with a healthy mix of narrow valleys, steep moors and ancient oak woodlands. These hills offer truly inspirational views across the Bristol Channel, and when the weather's fine, the Gower coastline. Though designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Quantocks receive far fewer visitors than neighbouring Dartmoor and Exmoor, making them ideal for bikers and hikers in search of deserted trails.


After an exhilarating day exploring Somerset's hidden treasures you will no doubt be looking for a tranquil setting to watch the world go by. And as luck would have it the relaxed atmosphere at Secret Valley fits the bill. So sit back, unwind, and watch the sunset whilst asking yourself why you don't go glamping more often.
