 Our second visit, last one in 2018. It's still a lovely peaceful site not busy during our visit. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

We had a good size flat hardstanding pitch. There are plenty of water taps but one place to empty grey water by the chemical emptying place.

Facilities lovely and clean with good showers.

TV reception is excellent and this time the mobile signal (on O2 )

Was OK but patchy at times. You get free wifi for your stay for one device, which was fine.

It's a pleasant stroll to Priddy where there is a good pub- The Queen Vic with good beer and food and friendly service.

Good situation for visits to nearby Wells, Cheddar Gorge and the coast.

It's very quiet at night with clear starlit skies for most of our time. A torch is recommended for walking around the site after dark.

 Absolutely love this site!

Super friendly staff, great facilities and a fantastic location to explore from.

Be prepared for no mobile signal, although sometimes a good thing! Internet on site is good and you can pay for extra days/ devices.

Highly recommend this site if you want to explore Cheddar, Glastonbury and Wells areas, or if you simply want to chill out.

 Cheddar is a franchised site but very nice with helpful staff.

It is an internet blackout but for us we could stay in touch with the outside world on visits to Wells and Glastonbury.

Clean facilities with a pull cord to operate the showers. A word of advice - do not drive up through the gorge with your unit which we did, fortunately our van is small and we managed it much to the surprise of staff.

Would recommend this site for visits to the towns mentioned above and most importantly wonderful walking and Cheddar Gorge.

 A great spot to be. The site felt spacious even when busy during weekends.

Perched high up on the Mendips there were lovely sunset views even after rain.

This site is very well cared for by the staff.

It was here, back in our trailer tent days, that we decided to join The Caravan and Camping Club.

 A lovely secluded site a few minutes drive from Cheddar Gorge (mind the Soay sheep on the bends!). Staff are very friendly and helpful. Facilities are spotless and modern. There is a farm shop next door that does an amazing farmers breakfast!

“Dog walk” is a bit limited and must be on lead. Footpath outside camp had cows. Otherwise plenty of walking nearby.

Do study the directions carefully to avoid towing through the gorge or very narrow lanes.

Great shame that hundreds of ash trees have been cut down throughout the area due to ash dieback disease.

A walk through Cheddar in the evening and a fish and chip supper beside the streams. Lovely!

 Site is in ideal place to visit Cheddar, 15m walk to Gorge, shops and restaurants. Sainsburys only 10m walk away.

Facilities are good and clean, however with no shower curtain, keeping clothes dry during shower is a challenge. Pitch was flat and well maintained, and wardens were welcoming and helpful.

TV requires aerial cable but WiFi good.

A lovely site, would return

Reviewer: Dubdogs 147 reviews from this member

 Had a couple of nights stay on my own with my two dogs.

The site is well tended and looks very nice, with the owners busying themselves with keeping things tidy. Facilities were clean and the washing up room and laundry were very good, with local information to hand. The on site shop was also very good and well stocked.

The owners were efficient in my dealings with them, but not overly friendly.

Two points that will slightly put me off returning, their apparent attitude to dogs and how much the pitches slope. It seemed strange to be given and extra 'information leaflet' about dogs, that included statements about not letting your dog urinate on site or around your pitch; try walking two dogs to the entrance and not letting them lift their leg! It also had the C&CC club 'rules' printed with statements in bold. It just felt totally unnecessary. All other C&CC sites have a brief paragraph which is common sense and the norm for most campsites.

It also seemed strange to go to the trouble of putting gravel pitches in but not levelling the pitch at the same time! Luckily I got my van level, but many of the other pitches were not so lucky with vans at various angles with chocks staked up unable to get level.

The surrounding area is great for walking and that will probably pull me back to the site, but I'll no doubt check out the looks of other sites in the area first.

 We have just had 10 days at this lovely peaceful site.

We received a warm reception from the assistant site manager and were allowed to choose a pitch.

It is in a lovely peaceful setting, nice views over adjacent fields

Very little light pollution at night. A torch is useful after dark!

Pitches are a mix of hardstandings and grass, a good size some gently sloping.

The site is kept in lovely condition by the staff, who are very friendly and helpful.

Sanitary facilities are spotlessly clean and have good hot showers.

Reception sells a range of food and drink plus camping essentials.

You can purchase tickets for the nearby Cheddar Gorge attractions from reception, saving £6 on two adult tickets, you have to do this the day before.

Its a 3/4 mile pleasant stroll into Priddy which has an excellent pub, the Queen Victoria.

It is a very old pub serving local ales and good food with friendly staff. Free wifi too.

The other pub (The New Inn) is closed for refurbishing. Go past this and take second right to the Queen Victoria!

Left out of the site takes you into Cheddar Gorge well worth a visit.

There is a farm shop, which does breakfast, a few minutes stroll out of the site.

Plenty of footpaths and open spaces close by to exercise your dog!

Nearest supermarkets are in Wells, Waitrose, Morrisons and Lidl. Its a pleasant city with lovely cathedral and plenty of cafes and shops.

You can park at Waitrose and claim some of fees back if you shop


Glastonbury, Weston Super Mare are all easy drives, also Clarks outlet at Street and the excellent Fleet Air Arm museum at Yeovilton.

TV reception is excellent but phone signal was non existent on EE. Apparently Vodaphone works fine!

Pay for wifi is available all over the site.

A super site convenient for this scenic area.

 My partner & I have just returned home after a lovely weeks holiday at this campsite. Our pitch was on hardstanding & spacious. The site was wonderfully peaceful, the only sounds were from local farm animals. The facilities were kept spotlessly clean & it was good to have 2 personal cubicles (although I was concerned that one had a window to the outside & no way of preventing folk seeing someone inside using it). The only negative I felt was that in the dark evenings it could do with some lighting around the site. The details do say that there are 2 pubs in Priddy but at the present time only the Queen Victoria is open & very popular, offering good food at reasonable prices. During our stay we walked over 45 miles (thanks to decent weather), taking in Cheddar Gorge & the Mendips, areas which are very close to the site. A visit to the extremely beautiful Wells cathedral was a joy. I would definitely recommend this site & I hope to return sometime in the future

 We stayed on this site with friends for a weekend in June. We were in a large tent and our friends were in a caravan.

We were warmly welcomed and informed about the various facilities by the good natured wardens, then shown to our pitches. These were a decent size and came with EHU, just reachable with our 15m cable. The pitches were on quite a slope so it’s worth making sure that you have the means to level anything that needs levelling, like the camping stove or a table. Pitches are all well maintained; some are hard standing and some are grass.

The campsite itself was very peaceful. Although it was a busy weekend with most if not all pitches occupied, there was almost no noise from anywhere on the site. A nearby road inevitably produces a little traffic noise but it is not a busy road and there were no noisy or large lorries. The road is narrow, though – something to bear in mind if towing.

The facilities on the site were kept very clean throughout our stay and consist of toilets, washing cubicles, and showers. There are also disabled and parent/child facilities.

The site office is also a shop which appeared well stocked, though we did not use it or look round in detail. It is possible to order bread there for delivery the following morning.

Three quarters of a mile away is the hamlet of Priddy where the Queen Victoria Pub does excellent and reasonably priced food as well as a good choice of ales and ciders, as well as all the other drinks you expect to find in any pub. In the other direction from the camp site, just a few yards up the road is a small farm shop – the sausages from there were excellent!

It is about 3 miles to Wookey Hole and a little further to Wells. Cheddar is also close by.

All in all, a beautiful, well maintained camp site inset in beautiful countryside. Well worth a visit.
