General

  • The oldest family-run park in the Cheddar valley
  • Between Wells and Cheddar with spectacular valley and hill views
  • Licensed café and shop, indoor pool, paddling pool and games room

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, 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. A games room with pool table is also on site.

For grownup concerns, Bucklegrove has a licensed shop, fully-equipped coin launderette and free use of the ice block freezer; there’s free hot water for dishwashing and showers, and separate family bathrooms and full-sized baths available for a nominal extra charge.

The site has good mobile phone coverage and free wifi across throughout if you need to stay in touch or upload pictures of the views to Facebook.

A 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).

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

  • Liked: 

    The fantastic views from the top of the field. Neat and tidy flat pitches. Well kept grass. Nice little shop on site. Overall we enjoyed our stay - there is plenty to do in the surrounding area.

    Disliked: 

    The windows from the ladies toilet cubicles opening onto the washing up area! Only 3 toilets and 2 showers in the field we were in, so this got very busy and there were queues for the showers in the morning. Not very much to do on the site so most people doing day trips so there was congestion in the mornings. There is another block on site but this serves more campers so there were queues here too.
    The drinking water supply were sitednearby on pitches so access was frequently blocked by the people camping/parking on those pitches.

    This campsite was beautiful. It's grounds, toilet blocks, bar area was spotless and well looked after

    Disliked: 

    The size of the swimming pool & how it's not supervised/checked. whilst there on more than 1 occasions we were swimming with young kids and there was groups of kids a lot older who arrived & were jumping in, doing bombs & doing a lot of splashing & messing around which meant we then had to all get out which didn't please the kids who looked forward to swimming.

From the manager...

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the location and Park, we are lucky to have such beautiful views :)

We are sorry if your swimming time was disrupted. It is made clear on arrival that all children must be supervised by an adult. We do monitor the pool and intervene if necessary or if it is brought to our attention.

We hope you got to enjoy the surrounding area too and very much hope to see you again.

    Very welcoming, family friendly site, great atmosphere and very supportive staff.
    It was a little daunting going to a totally new area as a single parent however we had a very enjoyable holiday with my two children and our 15 month old cocker spaniel! The play area amused them while waiting for some food from The Lodge. Tasty food served with a smile. Indoor swimming pool enjoyed every day.
    Great local advice given by the staff regarding amusing the dog too... enjoyed the Cheddar Gorge Walk via the National Trust Cliff Top walk and avoided the fee for entering Jacob's Ladder in Cheddar itself, and a more level ramble around Cheddar Reservoir another day.
    Facilities were in good condition, electric hook up, easy access to water points, and clean well kept ladies showers and toilets all helped us enjoy a good time despite a busy time of the school holidays (that is a lot of folk also there :-)). Washing up area was handy and in good working order and bins available for general, dog and recycling waste.
    Grass pitch was fairly level in The Grove with good parking space for one car (extra cars can be parked nearer reception if needed).
    All in all I look forward to staying there again, we have plenty of good memories of the short week spent there.
    Thank you all at Bucklegrove.

Important note for GPS users: please do not rely solely on the route provided by your satnav as some of the local lanes are not suitable for large/towing vehicles.

From the M5 motorway:
Leave at Junction 22 and take the A38 north (signposted Cheddar). As you come into the village of Cross, take a right turn onto the A371. Stay on this road through Cheddar and Draycott (towards Wells). Continue through the village of Rodney Stoke (passing the Rodney Stoke Inn on your right), up the hill and the park is on the left after the 'S' bend. Please use the second entrance.

From the A303:
At Wincanton turn onto the A371 towards Shepton Mallet. Continue through Shepton Mallet on the A371 towards Wells. Upon reaching Wells take the second exit off the roundabout and proceed through the first set of lights, bearing left at the second lights (signposted Cheddar). Continue along the A371 though the villages of Haybridge, Easton and Westbury-sub-Mendip. The park is approx half a mile on the right after leaving Westbury-sub-Mendip.

Rail/bus:
A local bus service (126) stops directly outside the park. The route runs from Weston-super-Mare train station and through to Wells via Cheddar and local towns.

Local attractions

Bucklegrove is only a few miles away from two Somerset absolute must-sees: the spectacular Wookey Hole Caves and home of the Witch of Wookey for spellbinding shenanigans, and the Cheddar Caves and Gorge for would-be smugglers, adventure story fans and historyheads.

The Cheddar Gorge is deep in records: it’s the largest gorge in the country, has the biggest colony of endangered greater horseshoe bats and is the discovery site of Cheddar Man, the oldest complete human skeleton found in Britain and a name you'll want to say in a dramatically deep superhero’voice; find out about him and his ancestors in the caves’ Museum of Prehistory.

Outdoors around the gorge, there are the 274 steps of the Lookout Tower to puff up for sweeping Somerset views, and a clifftop walk and open-top bus tour.

Apart from witchy and subterranean goings-on, holidaymakers in this corner of the country will find gardens, history, farm parks, theme parks, beaches and more within easy reach and other main Somerset attractions like Bristol and Bath within an hour’s drive.

Glastonbury with its abbey and tor is less than half an hour away, and medieval Wells, Britain’s second smallest city (that’s four now) has a thirteenth century cathedral and bishop’s palace complete with moat.

Feeling driven? The Haynes Motor Museum at Yeovil has the UK’s biggest collection of cars from around the world and is one of several museums in Somerset on the quirkier side: also try the privately-owned Oakham Treasures near Bristol for retail and farming history, the Helicopter Museum at Weston-super-Mare or the American Museum at Bath, the only American art museum outside the USA.

Kids are spoilt for choice with the wildlife parks, zoos and aquariums in the area: whet their appetites at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Bristol or the SeaQuarium at Weston-super-Mare before taking them to an adrenaline-inducing day at Longleat Safari Park just over the border in Wiltshire.

Rollercoasters and fairs more their thing? Brean Leisure Park has 40 rides, river rides and splash parks; stroll along the miles of sandy stretch from here past Berrow and to seaside town Burnham-on-Sea.

Sticking closer to Cheddar, there’s abseiling, caving, sampling the wares at Somerset cider farms, meandering around the Mendips or visiting the town’s sweet factory all to be had – and yes, there's also the cheese.
