We reckon this Somerset site will have you breaking out in cheesy grins: stunning views of the Cheddar valley and Mendip Hills, spankingly clean amenities and a café with sun terrace where you can watch the kids whirling around the play park…it’s all gouda.
Lying between Wells and Cheddar, the family-friendly Bucklegrove Caravan & Camping Park is the oldest family-run park in the Cheddar valley and is set up for all ages in mind: as well as the play park and the family-friendly licensed café, the log cabin with indoor pool also comes with a smaller pool for mini cheddars, at no extra cost. There’s a games room too with pool table.
For grown-up concerns, Bucklegrove has a licensed shop, fully-equipped coin launderette and free use of the ice block freezer; there’s free hot water for dish washing and showers, with separate family bathrooms and full-sized baths available for a nominal extra charge.
If you need to stay in touch or upload pictures of the views to Facebook, there’s good mobile phone coverage, and wifi across the park at a reasonable fee. The licensed café sells home-cooked meals and another pub is within a couple of miles; Bucklegrove is 15—20 minutes from Wells, Cheddar and Weston-super-Mare for pubs and restaurants further afield (a bus stop is just outside the park entrance for those getting about under their own steam).
Bucklegrove guests can take their pick from a tent pitch in the landscaped grass area of The Grove or bed down in a luxury log camping cabin complete with freeview telly and DVD player. Either way, we think you’ll brie pretty happy – say cheese…
