Interaction with guests
We live in Gorge View House next door to the cottage and share the drive. When you turn up we'll probably be in and pop out to meet and greet you, quickly show you the key things about the cottage and then let you get on with settling in. Our approach is that we will assume everything is fine, but if you want some information, want to know how something works, need to borrow some kitchen equipment, or a bowl of sugar, or have help lighting the wood burning stove if you'd like to try it ... then please just ask.

We only stayed a few days but the cottage was so homely and beautifully situated and I would strongly recommend it to anyone. Can't wait to come back and see those views again!! Claire and Linzi

Management response:

Thanks for the feedback both of you. It's nice that even at this time of year the cottage is a cosy place, and we also love that the view to the gorge and the trees on the hills changes day to day and often hour to hour. Hope to see you again. Huw & Mary

This was my third time visiting Gorge view cottage and it remains an exceptional retreat. Ideally situated, warm, clean, very comfy and tastefully decorated this cottage sets high standards and does not fail to deliver them.

Management response:

Great to hear you had another lovely stay, and maybe sometime we'll see you here yet again. You certainly packed in a lot of great local destinations whilst here.

About the neighbourhood
Cheddar nestles on the sunny southern slopes of the lovely Mendip Hills, a British Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). A small village of just 5,000 Cheddar is famous for the natural beauty of the gorge, the limestone caves beneath, the birthplace of Cheddar cheese, and the strawberries the area produces. It lies 20 miles south of the historic city of Bristol one of England's great cities, dominated by the 'floating' harbour designed by Brunel in the 1800s and with buildings going back to the 1600s. Nearby is the beautiful city of Bath famous for it Georgian architecture and the whole city is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Despite their proximity to these lovely cities the area is very rural. Apart from the hills with their walks and nature reserves, villages and pubs, t...

How to get there
We're pretty easy to find given that we're so close to Cheddar Gorge which is signposted from a long way out (look for the Brown tourist location signs). Once near the start of the gorge area in Cheddar, at the TweenTown (Riverside Inn) roundabout head for the gorge, but immediately turn left in to Birch Hill. The Cheddar Fish Bar is on your right as you proceed up a short narrow rise and then it opens out a little. Gorge View house is the second bigger house on the left. Buses stop near the roundabout (inc. from trains in Weston-s-M, service 126). The airport is 20 minutes drive away or by taxi.
