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 bar with sun terrace where you can watch the kids whirling their whey 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 bar, the log cabin with indoor pool also comes with a smaller pool for mini cheddars, and 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 dishwashing 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 bar sells home-cooked meals and there’s another pub within a couple of miles; Bucklegrove is 15—20 minutes from Wells, Cheddar and Weston-super-Mare for pubs and restaurants further afield (there’s a bus stop 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…

Terms and conditions

Please read the park terms and conditions below and the Pitchup.com terms and conditions.

Bucklegrove is a long established park and has been providing traditional and fun-filled family holidays for over 60 years! As such we have a no-noise policy between midnight and 7am and request that you do read and follow our park regulations below.

If you are looking for unforgettable holiday memories and the chance to relax and unwind then we're your park; for late nights and wild parties, we suggest you find an alternative venue.

Bucklegrove is a small, rural, family-run holiday park.

We welcome families and couples and do not accept bookings from all male or all female parties of four or more persons. We only accept group bookings from recognised rally organisations.

Our guests’ enjoyment and safety is paramount and therefore we ask you to read the following terms and conditions before making your booking.

Balance payments:
- camping pitches: on arrival.

Booking conditions: We reserve the right to ask guests who contravene these terms and conditions or, who in any other way are behaving in a manner likely to cause distress or nuisance to other visitors, to leave the park immediately. In these circumstances the holiday ceases and we shall not be liable for any extra costs incurred by you. We also reserve the right to refuse any booking.
