The Batch Campsite: The stunning sunset from our tent at Camp Batch

General

  • Small and friendly site at the top of the Mendips
  • Three miles from Cheddar and within walking distance of several pubs
  • Surrounded by woodland: look out for deer, badgers, foxes and buzzards

Small, simple, in a wildlife haven, welcoming families and well-behaved dogs, surrounded by all sorts of activities, and on the Mendip Pub Trail – how many hurrahs could you give The Batch Campsite? (Quite a few more, it turns out – it's only three miles from splendid Cheddar.)

The Batch is rightly popular with wild camping and quiet holiday types, who come for its scenic location (watch out for the sunsets), its closeness to Cheddar and the things to do nearby such as hiking, mountain biking, climbing and caving… It's surrounded by woodland, so also watch out for deer, badgers and buzzards too.

The site is on the end of a bumpy unadopted private road at the top of the Mendips and has been deliberately set up in simple style so that guests can experience a wild camping vibe in a safe space.

Campfires are allowed – naturally – and Tim and team can help you fire one up for cooking if you need a hand. The team can also provide a range of local produce to cook up your own barbecue including trout, sausages, bacon, eggs, ribs, cheese and cider (all from within a three-mile radius): let them know when you arrive or drop them a note in the Special requests box after booking.

And yet more hurrahs: The Batch is within easy walking distance of several Somerset pubs, all pulling gallons of local beers and ciders alongside some dishing up some right good pub food. Most of the neighbouring farms make their own cider, but you can also walk down to the Thatchers cider farm.

The Batch facilities include a toilet block, fridge-freezer and a washing-up area; please note that showers aren't currently available for wild camping guests.

Please note

Reception is unmanned after 9 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

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

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Minimum spacing of 5 metres between pitches.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

    Amazing view and a laid back atmosphere. Not just a field but tent area is quite separate from house/shed/facilities. Large rooms with mini port-a-pots make for a good space to change clothes or sort gear. A pub at the bottom of the 'road' is handy as well :)

From the manager...

Thank you for this. We do provide our yellow wheel barrows to move your equipment. It means we don't have to have vehicles on the camp field where we also have small children dogs and chickens. We are also trialling renting out solar showers following comments that they have improved. Watch this space as they say.

    The site is near the top of a hill overlooking the coastal areas, across the Severn Estuary over to Cardiff - a lovely view and amazing sunsets! Tim was extremely helpful and welcoming - the milk was divine, the eggs full of flavour and the service sublime! I was fortunate to have the site to myself one night but other nights between 1 - 3 other sites occupied and still very peaceful. After a day out and about - and thousands of steps on my fitbit!- it was a perfect place to relax as the sun descended over Wales. Oh - the toilets are unique! Love the bookcase. And the armchair! I can definitely recommend this site 😁

    Amazing sunset views, Tim is a legend and will always go out of his way to help. Perfect setup for cycle tourists or bikepackers as the campsite has now installed bike stands to lock your bikes up. Easy to access loads of the Mendips for hiking and riding.

We had a very friendly welcome from Tim who is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. He even lent us his rope so we could investigate some local climbs he recommended!

    As a family with a young child and a dog we wanted to find somewhere slightly out of the way and partially wild camping and that’s exactly what we got! Set in a very beautiful, peaceful area with amazing views. We loved being able to explore the countryside around the campsite during the day and watch the sun set while sat around the fire in the evening. Tim was very friendly and welcoming.

Local attractions

The small farm of The Batch Campsite is between a National Trust woodland and a Bronze Age settlement: you might already have heard that this part of Somerset is fairly historic… Cheese, gorge, caves and climbing are three miles away over the hill at Cheddar and Tim and co can provide instruction if you want to tackle any Cheddar or Mendip caving or climbing.

It's full-on walking and hiking land here too, around the gorge and hills, the area's cider farms or the Mendip Way's 50 miles over the Mendip Hills from Weston-super-Mare to Frome. The Mendip Pub or Butcombe Trail is an agreeably scenic totter along 45 miles connecting six pubs owned by Butcombe Brewery and through Priddy, Axbridge, Bleadon, Rowberrow, and Compton Martin.

Yet more attraction and activity hurrahs are in the area, like seaside days at Weston-super-Mare, heritage at Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Tor and medieval Axbridge, or a shoot down the slopes at the Avon Ski Centre.
