Why stay here ...

Mick and Jen would like to welcome you to our CL.  It is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the foot of the Mendip Hills. The site is a flat, lawned field for caravans and hardstanding area for motorhomes. It has been a CL for over 25 years.  It is dog friendly and an adults only site opposite the Cheddar Club Site.

We are only 5 minutes walk into the Village for banks, supermarkets, shops, a café and a pub. 15 minutes walk brings you to the World Famous Cheddar Gorge where you will find entry to the Caves, more shops and a large variety of places to eat and drink. We have 7 pubs in the Village all within 15 minutes from the site.

There are many fantastic walks on the Mendip Hills, suitable for all abilities and with beautiful views. The most popular is a circular walk around the Gorge. The Somerset Levels, as suggests, are more flat walks most running alongside rivers.You can walk around Cheddar Reservoir stopping off at Axbridge for refreshments and see the picturesque medieval square and visit King John’s Hunting Lodge that houses the town museum. 

If you prefer to use your bike we have the Strawberry Line Cycleway from Cheddar to Yatton (9 miles each way) which is part of Route 26 of the National Cycle Network. At Sandford you can stop for lunch at the Thatchers Cider Pub. This is also a footpath.

There is an hourly bus service, from the Village, to the city of Wells or Weston-Super-Mare. Wells is the smallest City in England where you can visit the Cathedral, the Bishops Palace, twice weekly street market or see film locations used for ‘Hot Fuzz’.  Weston-Super-Mare is a typical seaside town and has many events throughout the year.

On Sunday morning, just up the road, is one of the largest car boot sales in the west.

If you use us as a base, within an hours drive are Bristol, Bath, Wookey Hole Glastonbury Tor, National Trust Properties at Tyntesfield, Tintinhull and Montacute. Steam Railways at Cranmore (East Somerset) and Bishops Lydeard to Minehead (West Somerset), Clarks Village factory outlet stores, stock car and banger racing, the Bath and West Showground, RNAS Yeovilton and Wilkins Cider Farm.

Activities locally include caving, dry slope skiing, swimming at the sports centre, Go Karting, fishing (sea, fresh water and fly), horse riding and clay pigeon shooting. 

If you just want to relax, set up a chair, light the bbq and pour yourself a drink, or sample some of the locally made cider and cheese and watch our free range chickens running around.

Everything you need to enjoy the area.

Witheridge Farm
We spent 3 lovely nights at Witheridge Farm Adults Only CL. This is an immaculately kept 5 pitch site which is owned by Mik and Jen. There are 3 hard standing pitches and 2 grass ones. There is hook up, water and black waste on site and all pitches have their own picnic bench. We were met on arrival by Mik who gave us both walking and cycling maps along with recommendations of where to eat locally and places to visit. Mik and Jen are very obviously proud of their site and the area and want you to get the most out of your stay. There is very easy access to The Strawberry Line cycling and walking trail, you literally go out of their front gate, cross the road and it is a couple of hundred yards up a quiet service lane. This trail takes you from Cheddar through Axbridge and Sandford to Yatton, about a 20 mile round trip. The trail has an excellent cycling surface and is mainly off road, you will have to cycle through a short section of road in Cheddar and near Sandford, there are also several roads to cross along the trail. This is a lovely cycle route and you can visit the Railway Inn at Sandford which is owned by Thatchers Cider or visit the Strawberry Line Café at Yatton Station where they serve freshly made rolls and home made cakes. During our stay we also did one of the walks Mik provided. This took us from the site along tracks and fields up onto The Mendip Way where there were tremendous views to Glastonbury Tor in one direction and across the Bristol Channel to Wales in the other. The descent brought us down via Cheddar Gorge and Jacob’s Ladder, a 274 flight of steps into the village, this walk was approximately 4 miles and not for the faint of heart, it is very steep and rocky in places. Mik also provided a less strenuous walk which takes you around Cheddar Reservoir but we did not have time to do this, hopefully next time. There is a bit of road noise from the adjacent road but this did not make our stay any less enjoyable.

Nice site spoilt by location

Witheridge Farm
This site is spoilt by the very busy, noisy road alongside. The turn towards Cheddar is almost blind and the road extremely narrow with no footpath. The only safe way into Cheddar, as Mick himself said, is across the road, past the Club site and onto the pedestrian way. We arrived and were given a 20 minute run down of the area, which was helpful but we would have preferred to set up first. We asked if we could move to a sunnier spot but Mick wasn’t happy to let us. However, the whole site is immaculate and we really enjoyed the beans we bought that were grown in the garden.

Lovely CL

Witheridge Farm
We have just come home from a week at this CL it is immaculately kept with plenty of room, three hard standing's for motorhomes and plenty of well kept grass for caravan's. You are greeted by Mick the owner who explains all about the area which is good if it's your first visit to Cheddar. You have regular visit's from the resident 6 hen's and 2 duck's all very friendly. Easy walk into town with 2 supermarket's 10 minuet's walk away. As said before this is an immaculately kept CL a credit to Jen & Mick.
