Why stay here ...

One of our many Somerset caravan sites, 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.

Lovely Site

Stayed at Cheddar club site for 10 days in September and thoroughly enjoyed it. Found it very peaceful and relaxing. The football club was adjacent our pitch and caused no great disturbance to us with any of their activities - even an evening football match was no issue.Facilities within the village of CHEDDAR are well documented in other reviews posted on here, though simply to say practically every thing you could need is within a short walk of the site. Ate out a few times and by far the best for both quality of food and service was The Bath Arms, excellent. Managed lots of cycling and away from the main roads was the most beneficial, even so beware of motorists the back lanes etc. Early morning rides in the beautiful hot spell were wonderful. The site itself is typically CAMC standard but is made that bit more special by the most efficient and friendly wardens (Jo and Malcom). A very well managed site to which it will be a pleasure to return..

Excellent location

Perfect location for dog walks and walking to cheddar gorge, Lots of shops, cafes etc all within a 15 to 20 minute walk, which is on a foot path away from the main road, which is great when you have dogs. sainburys is only 10 mins away on foot. Staff are very friendly and give you all the information you need on arrival, without even asking them. Would 100% recommend and we will return

Lovely site when theres no home game.

Our first visit to this site, which is 5 minutes walk from Cheddar town and all of its facilities. The site is quite small, and is in two parts separated by a tall hedge. the first part is basically two straight lines, whereas the second part is more open. This is where we pitched. There are only two wardens on site, who worked hard and kept the site clean. The wristband system was different to where we had come from, Rookesbury, in that you weren't given your own wristband. Instead, 4 wristbands were in a pot of diluted Milton, and you took one when entering the shower block. We found this system worked just as well, and had no problems. We used the facilites early in the morning, and didn't have to queue. Those a little later did though. There isn't a dog walk on site, but the walk from the site is safe, and leads to a lovely grassed area next to the river. It really is nice. The only thing to be aware of is the sites proximity to Cheddar Football Club. On the Friday that were there, the club house was being used for 'music' practice, and was very loud. Afterwards, the local football team took on Wincanton Town, and without fans, you could hear the players effing and jeffing for the full 90 minutes.

Just perfect.

Superb site close to the town of Cheddar with the Gorge on the doorstep. I have stayed here quite a few times and never tire of it. Site managers are fantastic and work so hard to keep the site up to scratch. Would recommend to anyone.

Pleasant stay, helpful staff

We enjoyed our first stay at this site. The facilities were spotless, as is usual for all club sites, however we would have liked to see emergency toilet facilities available for when the main blocks were closed for cleaning. The cycle route to Axbridge is very clearly marked but if you would like an easier ride, use the paved route around the reservoir for part of the journey. We can recommend the Almshouse Tea Shop in Axbridge (opposite King John's Hunting Lodge) for delicious cakes and cream teas.
