Small pitches

on arrival you have to drop your van at the gate and let some guy on a tractor put it on a pitch for you, wasn't amused by this as I was under the impression it optional not compulsory, after the van was placed on the pitch I was informed I could take my car to unload but then park in the carpark provided wasn't amused by this either. if you don't put an awning up you have room for your car, but no under no certain terms was I told you must park in carpark, back to the pitch itself if you put up an awning you no space surrounding your van is non existent and are forced to walk on the mud to get to your tap and electric on a serviced pitch. £32 a night in February what a rip off with only part the facilities open and people waiting to se them after they paid top money is not what I would expect from anything associated with the caravan club that I've been a member for many years, wouldn't return here very poor value for money, this park is more like a dictatorship on the what you can and cant do.

First visit of many.

Enjoyed our first visit to this site. Booked by phone at short notice, we followed the clear directions to arrive to a warm and friendly welcome. Site is level, nicely laid out, quiet and peaceful. There is far distant aircraft noise from Bristol Airport which we noticed but were curious rather than bothered to hear. We had a serviced pitch, for the first time as we are new to Motorhoming., which was great. Reception has lots of information about the area, walks, bus times etc. The village only has one bus a week to Bath, but lots to Bristol. The village shop is open long hours and the current owner was friendly and informative. Other reviewers have mentioned the showers, which are currently laid out as a row of little en suite style rooms. Very warm, nicely decorated, private and roomy although I have to agree that I noticed the fluctuating water temperature in the shower and would have liked to been able to adjust the direction. There is a hairdryer in most. Friendly farewell from the staff. Short stay this time, but plenty to see and do so we will be back.

Be careful !

A beautiful site with a luxurious toilet/shower block.However , on closer inspection there are advisory notices everywhere indicating how you (especially your dog ) should behave whilst on site. Fair enough as site wardens do like to have control but sadly it went too far on our third day there. Our motorhome wheel accidentally clipped the gravel board between the hand standing and grass verge resulting in minor damage. The board was pushed upright with a split but the adjacent grass/gravel was still intact . We were apologetic but the duty warden was not happy and told us in no uncertain terms that when we are ready to leave the next day (our departure), we must inform him at reception so that we can be supervised manoeuvring off the pitch. How humiliating!. Needles to say , we slipped away early unnoticed - my wife decided it was her turn to drive off the pitch and had no intention of allowing anybody supervising her. She is , after all a qualified driving instructor!

Three stays in three months

As caravan ‘newbies’ we chose Chew Valley as our first caravan site stay upon collection of our new van, we returned the following month due to appointments in Bath, and a month later again, due to appointments in Bath. We particularly like the private bathroom facilities, lack of children and the landscaping/spaces between pitches which give the overall site a very nice feeling of space and tranquility. We have enjoyed walking from the site to Chew Valley Lake, Chew Magna, Knowle Hill and Burledge Hill. A short drive away we have enjoyed visiting Glastonbury, Wells, Ebbor Gorge, Bath, Bristol and National Trust properties at Stourhead and Tyntesfield. The site is located with local eateries a short walk or drive away including: Salt & Malt at Chew Valley Lake where the fish is cooked in gluten free batter (which is great for our dietary requirements), Manor farm shop and cafe (at the far end of Bishop Sutton village) for lunch and purchasing fresh ingredients from the farm shop, the Red Lion for a drink and dinner, and Sutton Spice for a very nice curry. We will return to Chew Valley again in 2019.
