Why stay here ...

We are pleased to announce that from Friday 1st March 2019 our Cheddar Club Site will be open all year round allowing members to enjoy this particularly scenic part of the country throughout the four seasons.

Cheddar Club Site is situated on the very edge of Cheddar Village and boasts magnificent views of the Mendips and surrounding countryside - an absolute walker's paradise.  Amenities in the village include a variety of shops, pubs and takeaways. Cheddar Caves and Gorge and the famous Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company are all within easy walking distance of the caravan site. With Wookey Hole Caves and Mill and England's smallest city of Wells just a short drive away, you are sure to have plenty to see and do during your stay.

For the active and sporting visitor, the Cheddar Club Site offers access to loads of fun activities in the area - karting, pony-trekking, golf, off-road driving and a great cycle path are all available just a few minutes away. For fishing and water sport enthusiasts there is Cheddar Reservoir a short distance from the caravan park, with a host of different activities throughout the year. If you would rather just relax on a nice beach, Burnham and Weston-super-Mare are both within a half hour's drive, offering all the shopping conveniences you could wish for. Visit the site in November and you will also be able to enjoy the colourful atmosphere and bright lights of the Burnham-on-Sea Carnival.

Don't go by the Post Code

As with all CMC sites you do get a certain standard so the site was well equipped and OK for a weekend visit - particularly this time of the year. That said it would be a good base to explore the lovely area as Wells, Wookey Hole, Ebbor Gorge, Cheddar Weston-Super-Mare etc.etc. etc are within easy reach. The main thing is THE POST CODE. Ignore it otherwise you'll end up in a dead end in a housing estate. We did laugh about it and the wardens were helpful when we gave up and admitted we were lost! All in all a nice site and a pleasant stay. One final thing.......don't stay under the trees as the bird poo is a NIGHTMARE to clean off the car etc.

Best wardens in the network

Wardens do a great job but Cheddar goes that extra mile (so sorry I didn’t note your names). The happiest, friendliest and most welcoming wardens to date. Thank you so much for a lovely weekend. Site is immaculate.

Delightful

Stayed for a week starting 9th March A small but lovely well maintained site. Quiet and peaceful with Cheddars cheapest bar only yards away, a little noise from there but nothing excessive. Wardens Jo and Malcolm could not be faulted. Always busy but time for a chat with a smile. Shower block lovely and warm and spotless. Walking distance to Cheddar and the various tourist attractions. No play area for the children hence 3 stars for families. We will be returning when weather improves.

Great location for exploring Cheddar and Wells

Arrived on the 1st March, first day for year round opening to a friendly welcome - our third time returning to this site. The site is well located, walking distance to Cheddar and the Gorge - Sainsburys supermarket within walking distance, plenty of nearby takeaways too. Usual clean and tidy CC facilities - nice quiet site, mostly motorhomes and couples during our stay. Level pitches, narrow entrance road but nothing too taxing provided everyone sticks to the arrival and departure times. We're a family of 4 and it made for a nice long weekend stay. Wells, the UK's smallest city, is a 25 minute drive away - a stunning location and will be heading back to explore further.

Pleasant- ish stay in Cheddar

We stayed here in late September while travelling home from Cornwall. On arrival we received the most unfriendly welcomes from the grumpiest warden we have ever met. No manners, just a folded receipt and instructions to pitch and let him know where we were sited. The site is located behind a high boundary fence which limits the views but it is a well laid out with the usual CAMC facilities. Although these are looking a bit tired they were OK but nothing much to praise. But they were livened up when Mr Grumpy came rattling his sweeping brush under the toilet door and shouted "all out its time to clean" The benefit of having Radio 2 on in the toilet block is that you know it's cleaning time when PopMaster starts at 10:30, but with Ken Bruce still playing music I thought I still had a few more moments to relax, but apparently not. Anyway, the area is great and Cheddar is well worth a walk round and we did enjoy our stay. If you like cheese then you should be ok here but I was surprised by the number of Original Cheddar Cheese Shops there are. Finally I did overhear two others complaining about the warden (who appeared to be on his own during our stay), with one member stating that he had previously worked for the club, had given the warden a piece of his mind and would be making an official complaint.
