about Cheddar Woods

Here in Cheddar Woods, we’ve got a bit of a claim to fame- we helped to spark the start of the current UK holiday park revolution when we first opened our doors in 2012; bringing five-star standards to the Somerset region!

In the place of a traditional former camping and touring caravan park destination, we funded the construction of the new go-to location for luxury lodge holidays in Somerset, with standards comparable to those you would find in any five-star hotel overseas.

No longer did our guests need to head overseas to experience five-star luxury – as Cheddar Woods offered our guests the first opportunity to experience the Darwin difference, setting a brand new standard which had previously been unequalled anywhere else in the UK!

This focus on providing five-star standards encompasses all aspects of our Cheddar Woods holiday park, ranging from the facilities and activities on offer, to the luxury lodges which are available both for hire and ownership.

We have worked to customise each individual lodge plot, so that it has its own unique charm and personality. That’s why we’ve worked closely with some of the leading names in the holiday home industry to make some of the most natural-looking plots for holiday accommodation and holiday home ownership possible to find! Now that’s what we call a perfect partnership.
