A very user friendly well organised site. The clever bit is they site your

Caravan onto a fully serviced pitch or one with electric. They even make sure your lateral level is perfect leaving you to level longitudinally.

There are a good number of individual self contained bathrooms. Sheer bliss. The welcome sign made up from winter flowers proves the attention to fine detail.

400 yards away is a general store. All you need including papers and good value wine. The Red Lion serves a good pint and enjoyable grub.

The dog walk could be better and allow do off the lead. Chew Lake is a sight to see.

16 amp electric fully serviced pitch with your own mini garden. Lovely. One for a return visit.

Visited this great site to celebrate a birthday and New Year. Access down Ham Lane both when arriving and leaving was a bit tight owing to a couple of parked cars, but not a big deal.

Access on this thoughtfully laid out and well kept site is very easy even with a 9m unit.

The pitches are cleverly positioned giving areas of a few units and a higher level of privacy than you would expect. All the christmas Lights gave the site a great festive atmoshere

The unisex toilet and showers are in large individual units which were heated and spotlessly clean and are amongst the best we have ever used.

Lots of hooks and surfaces to put things on and not have to worry about getting them wet when stepping out of the shower.

It was if someone had taken all the best parts from other sites and put them together here.

As it has been mentioned before, easy to see why this site has won so many awards.

We used the Red Lion in the village which was friendly and we can recommend the food. Bar had a good range of beers and wines and it is a 3 minute walk from the site.

We also went into Bath (25 min drive)and visited and used the Roman Baths, expensive but memorable to be in the hot bath on the top floor out in the open in December in the rain!

Easy to understand the awards this site has received.

Where do you start,

Thoughtfully laid out with excellent shrub borders between pitches, Facilities best we have have seen

Very sensible.

There is a nice walk upto the lake via the country park, cafe by the lake is very reasonable and has a wide selection of food, very busy while we were there considering the time of year.

The Red Lion a short walk away was also reasonable and very friendly. There is also a very good Indian restaurant(sutton Spice) which is at the Sutton Wick end of the village, beyond that there is a Farm Shop and cafe well stocked and varied menu.

For those like us who have to rely on buses rather than move the Motorhome, the buses are few and far between but reliable, we found the local bus travellers very helpful with finding the stops in Bath and Bristol.

We have just returned from a very relaxing and chilled out week on this beautiful and extremely peaceful site. The garden style layout with borders/trees/shrubs gives privacy and is really charming; we just loved the look of it all and it is extremely well maintained. Staff are attentive, friendly and welcoming. We are more than capable of pitching and levelling our 'van but completely happy to let them do it for you as per their rules. They have a most efficient system which works well and everything is dealt with quickly. A well-oiled machine!

The many individual bathrooms with toilet/shower/sink/hair and hand dryers are fantastic. Each one is differently laid out and they are immaculate. They are cleaned many times a day; staff seemed to get to the last one and then start again we reckon as they were always spotless! They were also wonderfully warm; a joy to use to be honest.

We had a fully serviced pitch with electric/tv point/waste and water on tap and it was just brilliant. Not having to empty the wastemaster or refill the aquaroll was worth the extra 2 pn in our opinion.

Recycling facilities are excellent and we liked the lovely utility room with freezer / handwashing sink / dishwashing sink / 2 x washers and dryers. Separate room with sink for washing out the toilet cassette. We particularly liked the small free library of books and our most favourite things were the leaflets with walks written by a local enthusiast. We followed 5 of these walks around lakes and reservoirs and the most beautiful countryside - so many places to walk it really is a wonderful location.

You can leave the car on site and walk for the day or catch a bus from the village, a 2 minute walk up the lane. There are so many pubs in the area (again another helpful guide has been prepared for you to take away) and we managed to visit a few, eating out many times. If you want a reasonably priced meal the Red Lion in the village is nothing fancy (proper locals pub) but the meals are generous good pub grub and good value for money. We ate there twice as it was nice to stroll over for dinner and then back to the site to chill. If you follow the guided walks make sure you do the one starting at the Kings Arms pub at Litton. A glorious 3. 5 mile walk around a beautiful reservoir and you can finish at the Kings Arms for a drink. It is one of the most gorgeous pubs we have ever seen - just loved it and next time we will eat there. Menu is pricey so we gave it a miss after eating out so many times already but we wish we had now. One for next time!

So, as you will see, we loved this site and will definitely return at some point. The only small criticism I have is the price of the internet which is quite steep at 12 for a week I think but then you do not have to have it! I do like to log on of an evening so was happy to pay the price and the connection worked well and never let me down. Do try this site; you won't be disappointed at all, it is lovely.

Just returned from a week at Bath Chew Valley we thought the site was lovely and peaceful and well kept. The showers, toilets and washing facilities are all together in separate units which I think was better they were cleaned twice daily. This site is handy for visiting Bath, Weston supermare, Wells and a few other lovely places. We had a meal at The Red Lion which was very nice but we thought The Blue Basin /bowl ?pub was better value and a nicer meal. The use of the library and free internet was good, staff was friendly and stopped some people comin on late at night who obviously had no intentions of paying thank god for cctv. Overall we liked the site but don't think it warrants a five star, four definitely also thought it a bit pricey.

7 day stay and to be honest this is not a 5 Star site. The shower blocks could do with an update and taps are temperamental, hot or hot. The actual site is very well laid out and very attractive. A word of advice. When booking, ask not to be near the entrance, unless you're happy with caravans being shuffled back and forth, as all roadways are loose stones, not tarmac. This also applies to everybody walking back and forth to the toilet block, , rubbish facilities. Crunch, crunch. Would we stay again ? Probably not, as it's also quite pricey. Definitely not the Caravan Club standard. We would be happy to give it 4 Stars.
