- Small and friendly wild camping site at the top of the Mendips
- Three miles from Cheddar
- Surrounded by woodland: look out for deer, badgers, foxes and buzzards
Small, basic, in a wildlife haven, welcoming families and well-behaved dogs, surrounded by all sorts of activities for all sizes, 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 smashingly scenic location (watch out for the sunsets), its closeness to Cheddar and the piles of things to do nearby such as hiking, cycling, mountain biking, climbing and caving... It's surrounded by woodland, so also watch out for deer, badgers, foxes and buzzards all around.
The site is on the end of a private road at the top of the Mendips and has been deliberately set up as basic so that guests can experience proper wild camping in a safe space. Campfires are allowed – naturally – and Tim and team can help you fire one up for cooking if you need a bit of a hand. The team can also provide a range of local (within a three-mile radius) produce to cook up your own barbecue including trout, burgers, sausages, bacon, eggs, ribs, cheese and cider: 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 world famous Thatchers cider farm.
The Batch facilities include a toilet block and a washing-up area; please note that showers aren't currently available.

From Bristol and Bristol airport take the A38 heading south up to a crossroads with A368 in Churchill (Murphy's chip shop). Turn right on to the A368 and drive for approximately 400m. Take the left at Nelson's Arms pub onto Skinners Lane. Drive for 400m and then take the right hand fork by the Crown pub onto The Batch. Continue up this steep unmade road until you come to the top of the hill. Wood View and The Batch Campsite is on the right.
From M5, take the junction for Weston Super Mare and turn onto the A370 towards Congresbury and Bristol. After 4 miles, in Congresbury, turn right onto the B3133 signposted Langford. Follow this road until you come to a junction with the A38 in Langford. Turn right onto the A38 and continue as indicated above.
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 is three miles away over the campsite 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.
