Alan Rogers Review

Cheddar Mendip Heights Camping and Caravanning Club site is half a mile north west from the village of Priddy. There are picturesque views across the Mendip fields with their characteristic dry stone walling. It has a simple charm with field margins kept natural to encourage wildlife, and nest boxes in the mature trees edging the three fields that make up the site. These provide space for 90 units, some on slightly sloping short grass, with 76 electric hook-ups (16A), 37 with hardstanding. Historic Priddy is the highest village in the Mendips and is popular for its folk festival in July.

Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Nearby are extensive Roman lead-workings, Bronze Age burial mounds, the Priddy Circle and access to Swildons Hole, one of the popular cave systems in the Mendips. The park is also on the Padstow-Bristol Sustrans Route 3. Many tourist attractions are within a 20 mile radius.
