 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.

 The site is well maintained and with Hard standings in our English weather a bonus, plenty of walks available with or without a dog, roads not to clever if on a Bike plenty of hills to keep the heart Thumping. One Bus a week on a Tuesday 10. 20 and return at 1300 hrs from Wells, A lovely city well worth a trip in a taxi with a group. There is a Play area for the children at the bottom of the site, toilets Spotless plenty of Hot water Will return next year

 Just returned from this lovely site in the Mendips near Cheddar. We were warmly greeted by one of the wardens and shown a couple of pitches that would suit us. We chose a pitch by the wall that borders the road. There was a small amount of noise from this but nothing too bad. The pitches are sloping and a little on the tight side. We were definitely closer than 6 metres to both the tent next door and across the road. We had a fair amount of rain and so the dead area of our pitch became a bit of a mud bath! Facilities are first rate, spotlessly clean. The ladies facilities were heated with privacy cubicles to some basins and even a few loos with wash hand basins in them. Showers were large enough to take a child in too, though there are parent and child facilities on site too. There are spotless dishwashing facilities both indoor and outdoor with hot water from solar power. There is some distant machinery noise, not sure if this is a local farm or there is a scrap metal place nearby but we were aware of the noise though we might have been unlucky. Bikers too seem to like the Mendips on a sunny day so be prepared for that as well. The small shop is really great and the croissants available to order and baked on site were just brilliant! It is a real credit to the wardens who obviously put in a major effort to keep the place to a high standard. Overall I think this is a great Club Site and one I would be happy to return too, but with better weather next time!

 Spent 3 nights here. A lovely small site on the top of the Mendips a couple of miles from the top of Cheddar Gorge. The site is sloping so try for a pitch at the lower end, away from the road, where it levels off slightly. Usual facilities for a C&CC site with helpful wardens who offered us a choice of pitches. Site has a small play area for young children.

A small farm shop 5 minutes walk one way (which does excellent cooked breakfasts, try one) and a pub in the village of Priddy a 15 minute walk in the other (beer - Butcombe and food excellent).

No public transport so spent one day visiting family and friends, and the other visiting Glastonbury - the New Age hippy capital of Britain. Even if not your thing, worth sitting in a cafe and watching the 'sights' walk by!

Plenty to do in area and will be visiting again I'm sure.
