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.

Convenient for area sightseeing

This site is very conveniently located close to the village of Cheddar – a short walk to the village centre and a little further on is the Gorge and caves. The site is compact – the maximum number of pitches have been squeezed into the space available. There is a small facilities block - with limited access due to Covid precautions whilst we were there. But as most people use their own van or motorhome facilities, this is not an issue. TV is available via a booster point on the EHU bollards – note that it’s necessary to re-tune the TV after plugging in the cable because the boosted signal is provided from BBC / ITV South West, not the local service (BBC/ITV West). WiFi was patchy whilst we were there, but the system was in the process of being upgraded so better quality should be available soon. As always the Wardens were welcoming and friendly and site kept in a very tidy condition.

Lovely site with great staff

Just returned from this site after a weekend stay. I managed to get a late availability stay. The staff were really kind and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were really informative and helped us to make the most our our time in Cheddar. They worked really hard to keep the site spotless and safe in these very strange times. I would definitely stay again without hesitation. The biscuit lady

A well kept site

Our first visit to this site was a very pleasant one, we were greeted by a very friendly warden and despite the procedures put in place to comply with Covid regulations we were soon checked in and ready to set up. The site was very clean and tidy and the toilets were spotlessly clean, the wardens were working tirelessly to keep the pitches maintained in excellent order. Next to the site is the Route 26 National Cycle path sited on the old Strawberry Line railway track which is tarmac and the safest way to walk into the village for shops and pubs and of course The Gorge. A good mixture of hardstanding and grass pitches with two service points and a Motorhome service point too. We would definitely return to this site again.

Great site

A first stay of 2021 and such a lovely place to do it. Wardens were very friendly. Pitch flat with plenty of space. Views south towards the hills were stunning - fantastic to wake up to with a noisy dawn chorus echoing around the site. Facilities were good, very clean, but a bit of queuing at peak times accommodate social distancing. Centre of Cheddar village only 10 mins away with the superb Bath Arms for an excellent meal first night, with more pubs towards the Gorge for the rest of the weekend. A great place to stay,
