Petruth Paddocks is a place where anyone can rock up and feel immediately at home. From the couple in their expensive new motor home to a bunch of young lads in a £29.99 tent from Aldi, from Mum, Dad and a couple of kids to a big group of family and friends – and everyone in between.
A live-and-let-live place where there are refreshingly few rules, kids can be kids, campfires are encouraged, music and bad singing are not a problem and people feel free to wander round making new friends.
That’s what we mean by free range camping – and we love it.
There are so many rules and regulations these days that kids have a really hard time just being kids.
Petruth Paddocks is a PC-free zone – they can run and shout, climb trees and hide in the hedges, fish for tadpoles in the rhynes (what we call ditches in Somerset), kick a football about, clamber over the k*******d old Landrover in the chill out field, take a ride on the back of the quad bike with Jules, get covered in dirt, make some new mates, and even scrape their knees.
Fun is good and play is great – all we ask is that you use a bit of common sense.
