Overview

  • A popular site for couples

    Great site for couples

Our site is on the edge of the village of Priddy, the highest in the Mendips.

Our gorgeous Cheddar Club Site is set in the heart of the beautiful Mendip Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It's an ideal base to explore the area for walking, cycling, caving and rock climbing activities. 

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

You can walk to the village of Priddy where you'll find a popular pub serving food just 3/4 mile from the site 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 and other events throughout the year. There are also many other pubs and restaurants in the local area. 

There are many attractions in Somerset and the surrounding area including Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Glastonbury, Longleat Safari Park and the cities of Bath and Wells are waiting to be explored. 

Cheddar currently holds an AA 4 Pennant Award.

If you fancy leaving the unit behind, consider a hassle free break in one of our two 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

WiFi

WiFi is available at this site. However please note the service is supplied by a different provider therefore your Site WiFi card (powered by WiComs) cannot be used. Please contact the site direct for more information.

Worth Noting

The site is 45 minutes towing time from M4 Junction 18 and M5 Junction 23. Not all pitches are flat and chocks are advised. There is no on-site dog walk, but there is a local footpath near the main gate. Please note that there may be sheep, cattle or horses in the fields, and your dog must be kept on a lead. The footpaths may become very muddy during wet weather, so stout shoes or wellingtons are recommended.

Eat Local

Site shop stocks locally-produced preserves, pork, beef, chicken, eggs, cider and ales. Bread and pastries baked on site. A farm butcher is next door and village pubs serve local produce. Farmers’ Market is held in Wells on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

This review is for Cheddar Mendip Heights

We were pleasantly surprised to find this site at the top of the cheddar gorge, so we drove through the gorge, it was breath taking. The site is very green and clean with a well stocked shop. We took our dog as its a dog friendly site, but we were given a leaflet on arrival stating the dogs must not urinate or defecate on site (I don't have control over that) there is a large field opposite the site for exercise, which we found had a large number of spikey weeds in or you can walk along the lanes, which we tried but there is no lighting so not ideal. I would recommend this site but not for dogs. On our way home back through the gorge and village, opposite a petrol station there is a deli called Handsford, you must try it for all its homemade cakes/pastries/rolls and other delicious food. They also do coffee/tea as a takeaway. That gets 5 stars from us.

A smallish site with fabulous wardens who were very friendly and welcoming.

This review is for Cheddar Mendip Heights

A smallish site with fabulous wardens who were very friendly and welcoming. A nice little shop on site with the essentials, incredibly clean facilities and the whole place was a credit to the club. It should be noted that the site is a good 5 miles from civilisation so you can't just pop out for a lolly, but that makes it all the more special. I was in a diddy little motorhome with hookup. The pitches were all hard standing and although not all were level, only minimal chocking is required. The area is certainly ideal for walkers but also central enough to explore all the surrounding attractions; I went to Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge and Haynes Motor Museum. You will not be disappointed if you come to this site.

“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.”

- Dennis Family
