 Very impressed. Yes a very basic site, but staff were so friendly.

The toilet and shower block are new and probably the best I've used at a camp site.

The staff were cleaning them from the time we got up and still at it when going to bed.

The fire by the tent made the weekend.

 A lovely 5 nights at Petruth Paddocks. Great social distancing in place. Good sized pitches with lots of space. Separate toilet and shower blocks. Each toilet block consists of 6 individual toilets (2 baby changing cubicles) there are 3 blocks. Showers are also spacious individual units. Showers are open 7am until 11am and 6pm until 10pm to allow for cleaning etc. Toilet blocks are closed on a rota to allow for cleaning.

Site owners and staff are friendly. You can have a fire pit and the site will provide wood each night. They come around and it gets delivered to your pitch.

Washing up facilities were ok but could sometimes get busy depending on time of day.

Whilst we there, a man delivered ice cream on a bicycle which seamed very popular but we bought from Cheddar Village as more flavours available.

Would definitely return of I was to visit Cheddar again. It is a 10/15 minute walk to Cheddar Village and Gorge along a vehicle free path

 Excellent campsite, very clean facilities and friendly helpful staff.

A man selling icecream on a bike and a fresh coffee hut at weekends.

Loads of space for the children to play.

 Very friendly site mostly for tents with a small number of hard/electric hook up sites. Literally acres of space.

New toilets and showers. Ten minutes walk to village and 15 ish to the gorge.

Very pleasant stay- Thanks

 The escape this Public Health worker needed.

I was anxious about stepping into the real world after working relentlessly since February (whatever the hell that is) but I needn't have been. The infection prevention and control measures are exemplary, and done in a way that doesn't make you feel dictated to. What this wonderful team have done should be a blueprint for all other businesses.

Best toilets on a campsite ever (although I was terrified of taking out a small child by the spring loaded door😆), wonderful setting and a bloody amazing team of staff!

I shall be singing your praises (appropriate socially distanced of course, singing is still an increased risk of spreading the virus) from on high to anyone who'll listen. Hopefully that won't mean I'm then unable to book due to you being busy.

Thank you all so much, every single one of you! I feel recharged and ready to face our ever changing world again. Xx

 We received a great welcome when we arrived here. Jules and his team checked every now and agian to check everyone was OK.

Here is an amazing uninterrupted almost 180 degree view of the Mendip Hills. Stunning.

The toilets and showers are brand new and worked well. The cleaning team worked relentlessly, constantly cleaning them as well as the water taps around the field.

There were the ubiquitous dos and don't signs but all were written in a friendly matter with cartoons.

There is the Cheddar Ales Tap Rooms just 600 yards from the reception area, serving some 13 or so different ales served in 1/3 pint glasses so you can try different ales.

Cheddar town centre is only few minutes walk from site were there are a number of bubs, restaurants and tea rooms not to mention the famous Cheddar Caves though these were closed when we visited due to Covid 19.

 Easy to find but avoid Banwell if towing or motorhome as extremely narrow.

Having chosen a really wet week my 5 year old grandson still had a great time playing with Jules's son. Henry had a ride on the quad bike and loved the animals.

We visited the caves and resevoir with skate park next door. Heney took his bike. Ocean Adventures was great for indoor play

O - 12yrs.

We look forward to returning in better weather and having a firepit with marshmallows.

Didn't use the facilities so can't coment on those.

Reviewer: Anneparker 10 reviews from this member

 Here for a large family gathering, 3 generations, 12 units - tents, a caravan and a campervan.

Absolutely perfect site for us, facilities fairly basic but clean and sufficient.

Fire pits provided were amazing, children loved toasting marshmallows and toasting popcorn.

Location excellent, just a short walk on a footpath/cycleway from Cheddar village and on to the gorge.

 Stayed here in early March for two nights. The site was pretty quiet, not surprising considering the time of year and storm Gareth wreaking havoc!

Very friendly welcome and helpful service from the owner and staff. Very chilled out and relaxed atmosphere, I'm sure it makes a good party site in the summer particularly. Was given a VERY comprehensive welcome pack containing every bit of information about the site and area that anyone is likely to need. Impressed.

Location is great, about a 15 minute walk into the centre of Cheddar, where you'll find Tesco, Sainsbury, all manner of pubs and shops and of course the Gorge itself. There's a cyclepath leading from the site entrance which makes it easy. There are also lots of fab walks direct from site, you can walk for miles along the droves and alongside the waterways, and indeed I did.

Facilities were fine, everything you would need, fairly basic but perfectly serviceable. Portacabins housing the showers and loos. Good recycling. Washing up sinks. Free wifi on the pitch, although I didn't use it, found my 4G was pretty fast so stuck with that.

Looks like a lot of work has been done and is continuing to improve the site even more. A lot of trees being planted between the pitches and around the fields - when they grow it'll look very nice. It's a very big site with various camping areas / fields.

I stayed for 2 nights, one person, dog and EHU and paid £15 a night. Was offered the choice of hardstanding or grass - took grass as I hate hardstanding and it was fine despite the torrential rain.

Would definitely return!
