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)

Superb and would recommend

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park
Having read the reviews for this site after booking, to be honest we were thinking of cancelling due to the negatives. We are so glad we didn't. The site was superb, very clean and beautiful. Grass and gardens are immaculate and a lot of hard work has gone into this site to maintain the good standards. Loved the valet caravan parking, some of the pitches would be quite tight to manoeuvre into so the valet option is the best one, and you can park on the road to load and unload. They don't want you to park on the grass and as an example of this whilst we were there, one person drove his car on the grass and got stuck, as we had rain the night before and the tractor had to come and rescue him! There is no space to park a car on the pitches if you have an awning and it does minimise noise levels anyway. No hardship to park in the car park, its not far at all to walk to and we found plenty of large spaces available for larger cars. The staff were very pleasant, helpful and accommodating, so not sure why previous reviews had stated they were rude. We had no issues at all. There was a slight electrical problem on site, so rang the emergency number at 8.30 a.m. and they came straight away it was sorted in no time, very efficiently. They had a young lady, Ellie who was selling home made chocolate brownies, doughnuts, flapjacks etc on the Thursday, her first time on the site, and we so recommend. They were delicious and reasonably priced. All the negative reviews on this site, we don't really understand. We don't have a dog, so could not comment on anything regarding this. Lanes to site entrance is narrow yes, but they have managed this by the no right turn as you leave the site so you dont 'bump' into any other caravans and NE Somerset is known for small narrow lanes, that is the beauty and countryside of Somerset. Bushes had been cut back a few days before we left. This is the councils department, not the sites responsibility I would suspect. Phone signal was very good. Covid restrictions were very good. Loved the Adult Only element, didn't notice any noise from planes. Nice pub on corner and local shop within walking distance which is well stocked, and a Spa only a 5 minute drive too. Will definitely be back and yes I would recommend.

Great Site! Great Location! Great Staff!

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park
Congratulations to all the Bath Chew Valley Caravan Site on the exceptional quality of your park and all the facilities that were provided. We found the site very easily with the directions provided and the signage as we approached the site.Without exception all the staff were brilliant! From the very welcome greeting to the personal direction to our pitch. We had no difficulties during our stay and the facilities were second to none with absolute cleanliness throughout, and top quality management. The site went far beyond our expectations. We went to the Red Lion Pub a couple of times, and although we didn’t eat there we would not hesitate to call in again for food. The staff there were fantastically welcoming. We would be delighted to return in the future and we cannot think of one thing that would improve the already superbly well managed site. Thank you to all the staff at Chew Valley Caravan Park! Kind regards Chris & Sue Brooks (stayed from 20th-25th June 2021)
