Cheddar Caravan Club Site, Draycott Road, Cheddar, BS27 3Rl, Tel 01934 740207
To find site:- Access to the campsite is immediately off the A371. From the west coming through Cheddar as you exit the town in the direction of Wells turn right just before Cheddar Football Club. The entrance to the Caravan Club site is next to Cheddar Bridge Touring Park. The Club ask that there are no arrivals before midday as access is by single track road with no opportunities for passing. Please note that approaching the campsite via the road from Wells is narrow in places with several short stretches where it is more difficult for two large vehicles to pass.
The Cheddar Caravan Club Site is a fairly recent acquisition by the Club. It has now been completely refurbished with a superb new toilet block which includes a fully enclosed dish wash area. The site has 67 pitches of which about half are on gravel hardstandings set out in two areas. There are only two service points at either end of the site. In my view the site really needs a third point as depending on where you are pitched it can be a fair walk. There are no facilities for children. The electric bollards also have provision for digital TV hook up. Date of visit early October 2007.
The town of Cheddar is only a short walk away, the wardens suggest using the footpath at the back of the site to avoid a stretch of road with no pavements. For restaurants its best to walk in the direction of the Gorge. There is a Budgens supermarket within walking distance of the site. For most staying here the main reason will be the Cheddar Gorge and the associated tourist attractions. If you have time the Cathedral City of Wells is less than 10 miles away.
