As part of our Platinum Jubilee celebrations, we have joined in with the Queen's Green Canopy tree planting.
We enlisted the help of the Somerset Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury to assist us in planting a very special apple tree on site. Our idea for this tree was to celebrate Somerset's cider heritage in our planting and we sought assistance with finding the most local heritage variety possible.
The Rural Life Museum kindly put us in touch with a cider apple expert, who advised that the "Harry Masters" variety was the closest to Sparkford, developed by a farmer in Yarlington (5 miles). The Harry Masters tree is used in mixed varieties of cider and dates back to the late 1800s.
Finding the best possible apple tree for the occasion led us to a small, specialist cider apple farm, just on the cusp of Sparkford and Sandford Orcas. We were particularly pleased to find a small, local supplier, with the tree grown in Somerset to reduce emissions along the way. Our commitment to engaging with the local community and eco-friendliness was awarded a Silver Award in the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards 2021/22, which also reflected our commitment to tree planting.
Our tree is now proudly displayed on the Queen's Green Canopy map and will form an integral part of our camping landscape in the years to come. It will also feature in our David Bellamy Pledge for Nature 2022, as part of the Tree-Mendous Challenge.

We are proudly celebrating our first year as a Premier Parks Top 100 site, making us one of the highest quality, specially selected touring and camping parks in the UK.
