Bucklegrove Caravan and Camping Park

8.6

This campground/park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

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).

    Difficult to walk into cheddar the only way was along a busy road with no path, having said that you where the only place that had space and I would have booked in at a nearer site had there been space available.

    Easy to find, good signage on the main road. Close to Wells and Cheddar Gorge.

    Facilities clean. There was actually quite a few people staying just before Christmas, all of them in campers/caravans, I was the only one in tent. Could choose any pitch. Nice lady in reception. Small shop on site.

    There's map of the site on their website, you can use it to request pitch number, if it's available.

    Disliked: 

    It might be a bit crowded when full, but obviously not in winter.

    Peaceful site with lovely views and walks. Onsite bar and swimming pool, unfortunately closed at mo. Good clean facilities and everything on hand, which is what you need in a motorhome. Bus stops outside if you need to travel. Pitch 201 slightly unlevel, but nothing that would stop us returning.

    The pitch was a decent size with hedges round. Toilets, showers, washing up area close by. Just a couple of miles outside Wells & Cheddar Gorge. We would definitely stay there again when in the area. The price charged was also a plus. And the young person whom was on reception was really nice and helpful. Thank you for our stay.

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.
