Heated indoor swimming pool

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

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

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

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

The swimming pool is closed due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

The lodge and bar are open on weekends from Friday to Sunday and daily during school holidays. Please note between December and February the lodge opening can be subject to seasonal variation.

Very nicely kept site with clean facilities and friendly staff.26/10/2020

  • Liked: 

    Nice quiet site with good clean facilities, dated but always really clean with plenty of hot water. Very friendly staff. Site positioned perfectly for exploring North Somerset. Would go back again for sure.

    Disliked: 

    Only fault was the grey water empty point on the Strawberry Field had a 30cm high wall to lift the container over to empty (not easy at nearly 80yrs old) with a 50litre waste tank. A overly minor dislike I know but nevertheless one that could be rectified very simply.

    Nothing memorable at all!

    Disliked: 

    Although covid signs were on display one member of staff at check-in at the reception clearly didn't understand the rules (no face mask and tried to point out location on the map).

    After settling into our pitch families turned up (2 x motorhomes and 2 x tents) and proceeded to dink alcohol, shouting and walked around with tins of beer that carried on beyond 10pm.

Overcrowded and badly planned05/10/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomPeter H.Confirmed

  • Grove electric gravel and hardstanding motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Easy check in process, toilets & showers opened within Covid19 guidelines. There was access to a bus route into either Cheddar or Wells from outside the site which was very convenient.

    Disliked: 

    Did not like the layout at all. We were at the top of the site with a large mobile home behind us and we were within 6 feet of a caravan with an awning.
    There was a section of the site which was dedicated to seasonal pitches. This area looked really quite badly overcrowded with caravans of all sizes parked up very close together and no discernible planning to bring some order to the site.
    On leaving the site there was no motorhome service area to drop our grey waste water, thankfully as we were there for 1 night only there was very little waste so we emptied the tank at the next site.

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.
