Petruth Paddocks, Cheddar, Somerset, Mendip Hills
Cheddar Petruth Paddocks is where you go if you simply want to "get away from it all" and chill-out.
Open fires are positively encouraged with kindling and logs delivered to your door!
We aim to be the opposite of most sites these days so no overly zealous wardens prowling about - just Jules and the team who make it our mission to ensure everyone has a seriously laid-back time.
We've even put together an online and hardcopy guide to Cheddar so you get to know where useful stuff is along with some recommendations for great food and drink and one or two special deals just because you're staying with us!
Starting from our gate, stroll or cycle along the Strawberry line for 15 minutes and you're in Cheddar Gorge or why not continue on and take the old railway line path to Yatton recalling how different life must have been with trains hauling strawberries from the slopes of Cheddar to the early morning markets in East London over half a century ago.
You'll wake up to wonderful views - overlooking the Mendip Hills one way and out towards the levels the other - the ideal back-drop to a few days out of the rat-race.
If you can't face putting up a tent - why not stay in our 2-8-person Tipis or Shepherd’s hut complete with fire-pit and luxury beds?
There's loads of open space for the kids to run about in, get to know other and make new friends. Towards the end of the day, Jules often recruits helpers and gives trailer-rides as he delivers logs and Fire-drums to your door.
Well - behaved animals of all shapes and sizes are welcome so long as they come with well-behaved owners who pick up after them!
Spend the evening relaxing under the stars simply watching the fire as you chat to friends and recall old times.
Our facilities are basic but clean - piping hot, high pressure showers set you up nicely for the day and along with the loo's and washbasins, are all cleaned twice a day.
There's a washing-up bay and coloured bags are provided for you to separate your waste so we can do our bit for the environment.
Both fields have lots of taps and there's a chemical disposal point for those of you with vans and motorhomes.
If you can't do without your hairdryer we have 25 hook-up points and will be adding more over time.
We have 15 hard-standings so whatever the weather you'll be able to enjoy time-out at Petruth.
We look forward to welcoming families, singles, couples and well-behaved groups - come and say hello!
Jules and the team.
