 The female staff on reception where very pleasant.

The first thing that struck us was the very poor condition of the roads around the site, with pot holes deep enough to damaged vehicles. The poor roads could have been repaired relatively cheaply.

On entering the Grove it looked very uncared for, with grass and hedges overgrown. Hard standings were water logged and muddy. Even with the wet weather you don't expect hard standings to be muddy.

There were far more seasonal pitches than we expected which makes the site look quite untidy.

The facilities block was clean but in need of a refurb.

Overall the whole site needs modernising.

This review is no reflection on the site staff, who can only work with what they are given.

 Site is well located for all the main spots in Somerset and you get a discount on Wookey hole.

Good size shop well stocked. Site has faculties for the family and the girls liked the pool.

Though the pitch was quite small and being next to the toilets wasn’t great given the smell.

We pulled up and no one was in reception and the number wasn’t being answered. Ended up having to go into the site to find someone and once I did there was another four people wanting to check in.

Some very deep pot holes in the roads

 Nice campsite the caravan was nice and clean, it has a kids play ground, swimming pool and a pub/restaurant,

The only problem we found is after the school holiday it goes into “end of season” so the pub/restaurant is not open on Sunday and a few days of the week, this campsite had a caravan rally going on and was full but the pub/restaurant still stayed closed, most people was disappointed that it was not open.

There is another pub about half a mile down the main road but be careful of the traffic as there is no foot paths on parts of it, supermarket are not far away, Wells and cheddar are both very nice.

The cider barn is worth a visit if you like coder.

 We stayed in the adjacent field, Tor View and wow, what a view it was. Tents looked a little tightly packed in the main site however in Tor View we had unlimited space and plenty of privacy.

Clubhouse was lovely, good value food and drinks. Toilets and showers were clean and in a central location. Owners very friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

A phone charging station for those without EHU would be my only suggested improvement.

 Relaxed campsite, friendly staff, bar on site with live music.

Swimming pool on site, extremely dog and child friendly.

Would use again.

Tad pricey.

Toilets clean but not exceptional

Reviewer: DylanOES 28 reviews from this member

 A reasonably located site with excellent views towards Glastonbury Tor and the Mendip Hills.

The site is compact but restrictive, due to the lack of surrounding footpaths. There is one signposted towards the Mendips, but it includes a section along a narrow, winding, sometimes busy road which is not conducive to walking with dogs, having no footpaths.

The fully-stocked bar/restaurant serves a limited range of reasonably priced food, which is freshly cooked. The downside is that it opens only 4-days per week at this time of year, and was closed for maintenance for 2-days of our stay - so we only had access for 6 out of 14-days.

Unless the owners update their website (as we have requested), please take no notice of the photographs of what appeared to be a well-stocked shop - we would estimate that the product range was no more than 50% of that shown - disappointing.

There is an indoor, heated swimming pool which is a plus - other general facilities are serviceable, if a little 'tired'.

The staff are excellent - friendly and helpful.

The bus service between Cheddar and Wells is reliable and cheap, and convenient as it stops immediately outside the site.

Overall, we would not return, mainly due to the lack of options for off site walking.

 Very clean shower and toilet facilities. The pool was open all day and until 6pm but was rather chilly. All of these facilities were well maintained but rather tired and old fashioned.

The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful.

The site was in a peaceful location with lovely views. The site was also pleasant to stay on as no roudy noise at night.

The site was well situated for some fabulous days out. We loved visiting Cheddar and walking the cliff top walk and experiencing the caves.

Wells is very close by and is a very pretty quaint little city to visit. It is like stepping back in time.

Glastonbury Tor was another fabulous walk and a visit to Glastonbury is a must to experience this unique town and it's links to healing, mysticism and readings of various types.

Situated just right for cheddar or Wells less than 10 min drive either direction the views are stunning

Pitch well-sheltered

Facilities were closed hence no ratings time of year,

But plenty to do off site

Reviewer: ForsterJ 4 reviews from this member

 Despite the £3. 00 charge per night this park offers nothing for dogs. There is no dog walk on site apart from the Woodland Walk which takes 1 minute to walk through and dogs have to be kept on a lead at all times.

There is a walk from the site but again, dogs cannot be let off as you had to walk past 2 fields of sheep and the dog had to be lifted over several concrete stiles.

People were walking around the site with their dogs on leads having no option but to allow their dog to foul on the paths, grassy areas and stones, to the disgust of other site members. We've stayed on many sites and dog walks, free poo bags and dog washes are standard. It was very disappointing.

Apart from this, the site was quite pleasant and the staff helpful and friendly.

The shop itself was one of the worst stocked on site shops but that was possibly due to the fact that they wanted you to eat at the on site bar/cafe.

It's described as a Restaurant but the menu comprised of pizza, burgers, scampi etc. All served with chips. The toilet and shower blocks were tired and in need of modernisation.

 Very friendly reception staff. Nice small walk. Pool unavailable.

Food good. Toilets and showers both dated but clean. Dog friendly all across site. Quite expensive
