Our gorgeous Cheddar Club Site is on the edge of the village of Priddy, the highest in the Mendips, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The setting is idyllic, surrounded by rolling farmland and with distinctive dry stone walls between fields.

The site is an ideal base to explore the area for walking, cycling, caving and rock climbing activities. With Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and Wells within 6 miles of the site there are great days out on the doorstep. We are able to offer discounted tickets for both Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole caves.

The well laid out site has excellent shower and toilet facilities, including family rooms, laundry and a small play area. There is a well-stocked licensed shop selling local produce and fresh bread and croissants can be ordered from the site bakery. There is a good wifi service across the whole site.

There are 90 pitches, spread across 3 fields, 75 with 16A electric hook up and 38 hardstanding’s. Special rates are available for backpackers arriving on foot or by bike. There are also two well-equipped holiday caravans for hire, each sleeping up to six people.

For the less able we do have some level access facilities with shower seats and grab rails. More details can be found within a comprehensive access statement on our website.

You can walk to the village of Priddy where you'll find a popular pub serving food just 3/4 mile from the site. The Priddy Good Farm Shop, known for its hearty breakfasts and selling a range of locally produced meats and home-made pies is only a 5 minute walk from site. Priddy hosts a popular folk festival in July and other events throughout the year.

The Mendip Hills offer great walking with Roman lead workings, Bronze Age burial mounds, nature reserves, gently rolling farmland, plus of course the spectacular gorges of Cheddar and Ebor. The adjacent Somerset levels are home to several wetland reserves and many seasonal visitors attracting bird watchers throughout the year.

There are many other attractions in Somerset and the surrounding area including:-

  • Wells – England smallest city with its beautiful Cathedral and the Bishops Palace.
  • Glastonbury – This place of myth and legend has a ruined Abbey and famous Tor.
  • The beaches of Weston Super Mare, Brean and Burnham are just 20 miles away.
  • There are a number of National Trust properties within easy reach, including Stourhead, Tyntesfield, Montacute, Lytes Cary House and Clevedon Court.
  • The museum of Naval Flyer at Yeovilton, Helicopter museum at Weston and the Haynes Motor Museum at Yeovil are all great days out.
  • Bristol with its Zoo, river, SS Great Britain and Clifton Suspension Bridge is just 20 miles away.
  • The Georgian city of Bath, with its Royal Crescent, Roman Baths and Christmas market is a great place to explore.
  • Longleat Safari Park is also less than an hour’s drive from the site.

There really is something for everybody in this gem of a county.
