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.
