Thorney Lakes Caravan and Camping Park is a family run campsite on the Somerset Levels. The site is based in a large orchard with level generous pitches. There are 10A electric hook ups so no 3KW rapid boil kettles please. The site boasts four acres of fishing lakes stocked with a selection of coarse fish.
The nearest village of Muchelney was in the news last winter because of the floods however Thorney Lakes remained dry. Here you will find the remains of Muchelney Abbey, a large Benedictine abbey which once dominated this part of the Levels. Just over a mile away is Kingsbury Episcopi with a convenient community shop and café. Just seven miles away is the rural town of Somerton ' The Ancient Royal Town of Wessex', with its 17th. Century square and Thursday Farmers market.
Although we are on 'The Levels' this part has some pleasant undulating country roads ideal for tandem riding. The area abounds with pubs, cafes and other places of interest.
A full range of activities is planned for the rally including:
Last night hogroast/picnic
Velocio trophy (a treasure hunt style ride)
Local food and drink (Cider and Cheese)
Details of the week's rides will be posted here when finalised.
For this rally you may book a few extra days before or after the rally at the special rally rate.
