Bowdens Crest Park was first established in the 1950’s as a static Caravan Park and Camping and has operated ever since. In September 2017 the Kefford family came to view the park and immediately fell in love with the views from the Park and the local area, they then went on purchased the park from Ken and Angela May who owned and operated Bowdens Crest for 30 years. Since new ownership has taken place Bowdens Crest has been granted planning permission for Luxury Lodges Homes to be Developed throughout the whole site.
The best of Somerset is close to hand from Bowdens Crest, such as witch hunting at Wookey Hole Caves, striding around the Quantock Hills, Blackdown Hills and the Somerset Levels, exploring the subterranean sights of Cheddar Caves, or, for the more modern, happily spending holiday money at Clarks Village in nearby Street. Glastonbury is about 12 miles away; these days it’s probably better known for its famous fest nearby, but a more peaceful time can be had around Glastonbury Abbey, which has stood on this site since the seventh century and which may – just possibly – be King Arthur’s Avalon where the mighty Excalibur was forged (Arthur and Queen Guinevere are purportedly buried here).
The ‘holy hill’ of Glastonbury Tor, home to Gwyn ap Nudd or the King of the Fairies, is another legendary local highlight to trek to: Somerset picnics taste super at the base of St Michael’s Tower, accompanied by tasty views of the Somerset Levels, Wiltshire, Dorset and over to Wales. Tiny Wells about 20 miles away is well worth a visit too: once there, see the show caves and look for the witch at the Wookey Hole Caves on the edge of the Mendip Hills, where dinosaurs, King Kong and pirate golf abound these days too. Another seven or so miles north-west and on the south side of the Mendips, spectacular Cheddar is worth at least a day to see the most of Cheddar Gorge and Cheddar Caves, where you can stick to sightseeing or be a bit more adventurous caving or rock climbing.
Outdoor options in the area include hiring a bike and pedalling off from Langport Visitor Centre into the Somerset countryside, fishing on the River Parrett and around Bridgwater, Somerton and Taunton, or sea fishing for Dover sole and bass from the beach at Burnham-on-Sea. While you’re on the coast, the Animal Farm Adventure Park is a popular pick with animal-petting youngsters, and a SeaQuarium is a little further along the shore at Weston-Super-Mare.
