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.

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.
