Peaceful long weekend break

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park
We were excited to visit the Bath Chew Valley site, it is a very well kept and pretty place which is obviously cared for by the owners. Your caravan is towed to your pitch for you which is no problem at all and everything is explained up front about the site. I was surprised that Bath is 30 mins away but no big deal. We visited the Red Lion pub which serves classic tasty pub grub and a great roast on a Sunday. This was ideally placed just a 5 minute walk from the campsite, as was a well stocked shop. We did the walk to the lake to took in the wonderful views (and sampled some chips from the Salt & Malt chippie). There seems more to explore in the local area so will definitely be back one day.

DISSAPOINTED

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park
We didn't realise before paying upfront, that our van would be unhitched and towed to where the site wanted to position you, we had a very unfriendly welcome (you have to arrive after 2pm and NOT before). We were made to sit in the car and given a list of instructions and rules in a military fashion before we were allowed to exit the vehicle. You cannot park your car next to your caravan only to unload or unload, so its a little frustrating if you've forgotten something and need to return to the car in the carpark.The site is supposed to be dog friendly, there are little signs on the well kept grass saying NO! for dog poops and you have to keep your dog on a 2 metre tether. The dog walk area is small, again NO dogs off leads. And you will be reminded of this by the staff. The gardens are beautifully kept and not all the members of staff were as unfriendly as the chap we accountered. The unisex washrooms are satisfactory too. There is a lot of signage on the site, with rules and regulations that you must follow, you will be reminded of them by some of the staff. We had no TV signal, along with our neighbours on both sides of us, luckily we had some DVDS spare, which we lent to our neighbours. I know being out in the country we should expect a little noise, we unfortunately had two cocks that 'Cock-a-doodle dood' from sunrise to late into the afternoon over the hedge from the adjoining field. We were a long way from Bath - its a bit of a car ride. We were very disappointed with our 4 night stay here, especially as it was the most expensive part of our two week holiday. Until customer service improves and the rules relaxed, we won't be back.

Underwhelmed

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park
Stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of August. Approach to the site even with a twin axle caravan was no problem. The gentleman who moved our caravan to the pitch was very friendly. The other 2 staff members that we encountered are certainly lacking in customer service skills. We can make no further comment about the staff as the reception was closed “due to the COVID situation”. Our advice to anyone staying here is try to avoid pitch 4 at all costs. There is a gravel walkway through to the car park and the toilets and showers which is unnecessarily close to the pitch. Not only is this an invasion of privacy with people walking past within 2 - 3 feet of your front window at all times of day but also every step can be heard. We feel that this site is substantially overpriced when compared to other sites we have been on who offer so much more. A further word of advice. Make sure you read the terms and conditions before booking a stay here. Remember it is not a CMC site.

A stunning site

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park
Once again we have had a fabulous break here .As usual the site was in marvellous condition and the facilities were spotlessly clean. The team there were all friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble .We would recommend Bath Chew Valley unreservedly.

Lovely and Quiet

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park
We stayed at this lovely site for a week. The super location were complimented by the warm and kind hospitality of our hosts, clean and very hygienic facilities and the use of the hire-car onsite. The local pub, the Red Lion offers traditional home cooked meals and if you fancy something really special try the Lazy Lobster at Chew Magna. Woodford little lodge and the main restaurant, offer good food with breath-taking scenery of the lake Our visit to Bath and Clevedon were a delight. Our drive through Cheddar Gorge was also an experience to be cherished for a long time. This is MUST visit site for adults only (No kids allowed)
