Overview

  • A popular site for couples

    Great site for couples

Our site in the Mendips  between Wells and Cheddar, and surrounded by walking country.

Our gorgeous Cheddar Club campsite is set in the heart of the beautiful Mendip Hills – an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its rural location on the edge of the village of Priddy – the highest village on the Mendip Hills – makes this the perfect location for a relaxing break.

The well laid out site has excellent shower and toilet facilities, including a family room, plus a laundry, and a well-stocked licensed shop selling local produce. Special rates are available for backpackers arriving on foot or by bike. And there are two well-equipped holiday caravans for hire, each sleeping up to six people.

Within walking distance is the village of Priddy. Here you’ll find a couple of pubs and the Priddy Good Farm Shop, selling a range of locally produced meats and home-made pies. Priddy also hosts a popular folk festival in July.

Further afield Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Longleat and the cities of Bath and Wells are waiting to be explored.

Cheddar currently holds an AA 4 Pennant Award and a 4 Star Visit Britain Award

If you fancy leaving the unit behind, consider a hassle free break in one of our new holiday caravans. Our self-catering options sleep 4-6 people and have all the creature comforts of home. For more information check out our self catering pages Read More

I read the reviews before booking and everything lived up to my expectations.

This review is for Cheddar Mendip Heights

I read the reviews before booking and everything lived up to my expectations. There is just a county lane to the site and it was very quiet but with a few agricultural vehicles in the daytime. There were mostly couples of all ages on site and a few with dogs. You do need to be able to level your caravan as most pitches, even hardstandings, have a slight slope. There were some bricks available. Some of the grass pitches in the top field do slope a lot but people found good spots. Toilet block was kept very clean and the showers are excellent with lots of room and no horrible curtains or buttons which keep turning the water off. The site was quite busy with caravans, motorhomes and tents but I never had to queue for a shower. Staff were very friendly and you can buy cheaper tickets on site for Cheddar Gorge. Wells is about 4 miles away and has a good Saturday Market and many good shops. Easy to park at Waitrose in the town as you can claim some or all of your parking fee back on shopping. There are two static caravans on site so you can holiday with your friends/family who don't camp. Make sure you follow the directions provided to get to the site and don't end up going up through Cheddar Gorge - its a bit steep and narrow in places for towing. Note that there is only a short entrance to the site so you could end up queuing on the road whilst you wait for the new vehicles to be moved onto their pitch. This is a franchise site so if you have an annual C&CC Wifi subscription you will still need to buy a new one on site as I understand the C&CC do not allow the owners access to their Wifi. Do mention if you have annual cover as I was allowed a discount on the site owners Wifi. I saw the most wonderful starry nights so all in all it was a great base to tour such a beautiful area and I would go back like a shot!

“Had a wonderful 4 days at this lovely site. Bakery on site so had fresh croissants and pain au chocolat for final day breakfast. Also tried the local pub for great food, beer and cider and a short walk home to walk it off! Highly recommended.”
