TOURING CARAVAN PARK CHRISTMAS AVAILABILITY AND CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY LODGES FOR HIRE - CHRISTMAS 2024 AND NEW YEAR'S EVE 2025

Don't miss out on a New Year pitch to see in 2025! All of our remaining availability is on our booking system with the last of our fully serviced pitches.

We are one of the few touring and caravan parks open all year in Somerset and throughout Christmas and New Year. We make a great base to visit family and friends or just get away from it all!

Following such a busy Christmas and New Year in Somerset for 2023/2024, our booking system is now accepting caravan, motorhome, RV, Fifth Wheel and lodge bookings for 2024/2025. Our New Year's Eve celebrations were fully booked for New Year's Eve 2024 and we have already taken many bookings for the coming year!

As an established Open All Year caravan site, we know we provide safe, clear access to the park in all weathers and you can rest assured your pitch will never flood or be snowed under. We make a great base to visit friends and family in Somerset and Dorset, with your touring unit an extension of your own residential home bubble for the Christmas period. Our caravan park is open with availability in December with many great events outlined below.

 

We are open all day, every day over Christmas and New Year and are available to take bookings for touring caravan and motorhome pitches. Our all-weather hardstandings and access via main roads make us easily accessible, and easy to get back out and see friends and family too! With three great pubs within a two mile radius, you'll be spoilt for choice for your Christmas lunch if you don't fancy cooking in the caravan!

Caravan Park Christmas at Stourhead

TOP TIP FOR CHRISTMAS VISITS:

Visit the Christmas lights at Stourhead National Trust property and gardens, just a 15 minute drive away!

"We increased our stay from 4 nights to 7 due to the peaceful and well organised site. There are lots of beautiful places to visit including Stourhead and Montacute NT houses open all year. We even had a day trip to the coast (Lyme Regis). All good where Covid cleaning etc is concerned. Quiet and friendly." - Ross Billingsley

"We were visiting a local country home for their Christmas lights and Long Hazel was booked for us by our friends who also stayed. What a lovely well run facility. Brilliant." - Carole Allcock

"Met friends and parked motorhomes together. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Their Christmas decorations are fab! Fantatsic stay. Local pub, lovely meals for us all. Highly recommend it. Convenient for many attractions. We did Stourhead Xmas lights Saturday and Bath show ground flea market Sunday." - Barbara Smith

PLAN YOUR CHRISTMAS 2024 AND NEW YEAR'S EVE GETAWAY!

We welcomed more guests than ever in touring caravans, motorhomes and in our holiday lodges for Christmas and New Year's Eve 2023 and, unsurprisingly, many of you are already looking forward to spending the holidays with friends and family in 2024! With so many events in Somerset in the build up to the festive season, we'd suggest enjoying the National Trust Christmas lights; local makers markets and fantastic food and drink!

Motorhome Christmas break Somerset
MMM magazine Christmas caravan park

Long Hazel Park has been featured in Motorhome Magazine Monthly as one of their Top 10 sites for Festive Breaks! Visit our Five Star, Premier Parks Top 100 campsite in Somerset for a Christmas break to get you in the spirit for the season in November and December.

SOMERSET CHRISTMAS TRADITION

The "ashen faggot" is a Christmas tradition across Somerset and Devon, held on Christmas Eve. Seemingly linked to the "yule log", the ashen faggot is made from ash tree sticks and bound with nine green lengths of ash to hold it together. The sticks are thrown on to the fire, with the flames bursting each binding, one at a time. As the withy bindings break, it is tradition to raise a toast and make a wish. When all the bindings have broken, a piece of the half-burned ash sticks is taken to form the log for the next year. The use of ash is though to relate to the birth of the baby Jesus, who was said to be kept warm at his birth by the burning of an ash tree.

WINCANTON RACES BOXING DAY

One of the most popular horse race days in the calendar is the annual Wincanton Boxing Day races. As one of the West Country's courses owned by The Jockey Club, Wincanton is situated just a few miles from Paul Nicholls' stables and often features his young horses in races.

Tickets for the Boxing Day races are from just £10.00 and are selling fast! Wincanton racecourse is just 8 miles away from Sparkford.

NEW YEAR 2025

Start the new year of 2025 off with some bracing Somerset walks. Our nearest view across Somerset and Dorset is at Cadbury Hillfort, otherwise known as King Arthur's Camelot at South Cadbury. The old Iron Age hillfort has 7 hectares of open space and is ideal for dogs to run around. There's also a great pub at the bottom, The Camelot.

If you'd like to go a bit further afield, why not travel over to Glastonbury and climb Glastonbury Tor? You'll see Cadbury Camelot from the top and they're both 500 feet above sea level, providing great views of the ancient Isle of Avalon.

TRADITIONAL SOMERSET WASSAILING

Stay a little longer in Somerset and enjoy the tradition of wassailing! Traditionally taking place on twelfth night, so around 5th or 6th January, this ancient celebration takes place in orchards across the county.

Join in with singing and the tradition of blessing the apple trees for next season's crop by tying toast to the branches. It's also custom to enjoy a mulled cider!

Whilst you can often visit small cider farms, the most well attended ceremony is usually at Glastonbury Tor, visited by local druids.
