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.

What a good idea!

This is a nice small site with a fantastic location. As you know it really is a short walk into the town of Cheddar, the Gorge and the reservoir. Everywhere very quiet largely because of the Welsh lockdown. The Gorge walk is really worthwhile even in the mist and rain! Try to visit Wells, an amazing City! Just worth a mention, whilst queuing to register and pay, Malc the warden suggested I could pull over and fill up with water. What a time saver, it would be good to provide a service point at arrivals at other sites to avoid driving around looking for the service point before finding a pitch. Enjoy your stay.

Jo and Malc made our stay so welcome.

We arrived at Cheddar site for a 10 night stay having just travelled from Tintagel and Littlehampton sites. On arrival Jo and Malc made us very welcome and were so helpful in answering any queries or information that we needed. During our stay the Covid rules were well managed and Toilet/Shower blocks were kept very clean. Malc had a few friendly chats while around the site during our stay and he very kindly contacted me on return home to say I had left a small item on our pitch, which Jo Very kindly posted to me. We are very happy with the professional way we were cared for and will definitely be back next year.

 

5 STARS FOR ALL ASPECTS. .  I'm not sure if I ticked all boxes correctly to show this ??

Over and above

Lovely site up to usual CAMC standards. The main reason for this review is to praise Malc and Jo the two wardens, they were very friendly and helpful and worked hard to keep the site clean and tidy but also Covid secure. Jo even took it upon herself to bring our barrier fob to our pitch as she wanted to save me walking, having seen me limping.

Unpleasant booking in experience

Whilst waiting to book in at the reception, a lady used the wrong entrance to get into reception and the warden shouted - yes shouted - at her to use the other entrance. Poor woman - she actually jumped and quickly got in line. Then it was my turn to check in - I got shouted at too for not wearing a mask even though I was wearing my exemption card in full view. The lady warden said to the other warden - she's wearing an exemption card. Never been shouted at by a campsite warden before. This experience completely spoilt my stay to say nothing of having to pick a band out of a bucket of water with bits floating in it before I could use the inadequate showers (cracked tiles and generally didn't look particularly clean unless its where the shower block needs updating). On a more positive note, Cheddar campsite is a pretty site in a fabulous location.

First time/not the last

Had a very pleasant stay, despite Covid, would like to return and explore more . Used our m/h facilities but armbands on showers seemed to work well . A flat and open site with level hard standing and good satellite signal. A short single track entrance road , so don’t arrive early .
