Visited this site for the first time at Easter (First time out in new van).

Other reviews have already covered most of the issues but I would like to add that at bank holidays you can only book for 7 nights. I do agree that this is a very nice site and for adults only which is a first for us and was a major success especially at school holiday time. There is a surplus of signs though-out beginning 'do not' but understandable considering todays tendencies.

The toilet facilities were always immaculate and this rather underlined that this was an adults only site.

We have an active Springer Spaniel which needs off lead exercise. This is difficult at this site and area, The lake is only 2/3 hundred yards away but the water authority operates an on-lead policy so this was not ideal for us.

The policy of parking tow cars away from the pitch is probably going to mean we will not visit this site in future, I never realised how inconvenient this would be. The pitches are very well laid out and would not be accessible without the sites push pull machines to site and remove the vans. Once an awning is erected there is no further room for a tow vehicle to park. Even if you do not erect an awning you are still not permitted to keep a tow car on your pitch. Whilst this maximises the available space for the owners it is very inconvenient when in our case we keep certain things in the car, if its wet then you are wet when you reach your car.

I would add that this does not of course apply to campervans. The roads are all gravel so moving any wheeled item is difficult. TV reception was for us very patchy, The service pitches all had plugin tv points but not the rest which is unusual. As this is not a cheap site we thought this was mean.

Excellent facilities. Very Quiet. Good base to visit Bath or Bristol. All pitches are hard standing. Only able to book minimum of 3 nights over weekends. Could do with a separate area where you can wash and toilet and not have to wait for individual cubicles to become available especially when site is busy

Positives:

Quiet. Very tidy. Pleasant reception.

Very clean and warm washrooms.

Negatives:

Had to pay full price in advance with no refund if we didn't turn up for any reason.

Not disabled friendly! Gravel paths throughout prevent use of wheelchair or mobility scooter.

Dog walk very restricted - doggie must stay on lead.

Too many rules and signs! (Don't use this gate, don't go this way etc etc. )

Site a bit 'twee' but designed for quiet British pensioners we guess!

Approach lanes a bit grotty. Local village a tad run-down.

Found individual washrooms a bit oppressive especially with no daylight.

Toilets equipped with the cheapest, thinnest toilet paper in the world!

Prefer more sociable combined facilities!

Some pitches very close together.

Very expensive for what it offers.

About double the price of much better sites in Spain and Portugal!

Not recommended despite the pleasant lady on reception! Sorry!

We stayed for three nights at this site to visit family in Bristol. Ideally situated, easy access, albeit down a narrow lane, but for the last section it was one-way, so no fear of meeting another vehicle. Very warm welcome, shown to our pitch. The pitches are spacious and level. The site is kept immaculate by an active but discrete team of workers, who never fail to acknowledge you. The individual shower/toilets are delightful. Always clean and plenty of hot water. The site warden visited us to explain that a 'Music Festival' was due to take place, nearby, on the Saturday and Sunday of our visit. They had no prior knowledge of this so told us that if we were unhappy they would move us to an entirely different site or if the noise levels disturbed us they would refund our nightly fee. As it happened the music didn't disturb us at all, but we were grateful for the forewarning. We will most certainly stay at this site again.

I stayed at Chew Valley with my wife in June and it was a wonderful place to be. We have been caravanning for almost twenty years and have been a lot of places and we consider this to be one of the best we have visited. The pitches were an excellent size, the facilities were well maintained and modern. We really loved the fact that the sink, toilet and shower were all in the same area. The staff were very kind and helpful. It was in an ideal location for visiting Bath and Bristol. We are more than likely to return.

Well I am a little late putting a review on here but I promised I would place one.

First off, we thought the price was quite pricey before we got there, my view now is it is worth every penny.

If people are thinking of starting a campsite visit this site.

Staff are very obliging, the shower /toilet facilities are nothing short of faultless. One little thing I would advise, have a method of showing the shower/toilet you are using has an engaged symbol.

We had a cat with us and it was nice to know dogs are on restricted leads.

There is a pub within 5 minutes walk, very nice owner and really nice food, also a post office which despite being small seems to stock everything you could ever need. First rate thank you. We will be back, the Chew Valley Lake is a short cycle away and well worth a trip.

Highly recommend this site.

PS The hire care is a little gem
