Situated in a small lane, conveniently located in Cheddar village, the cottage has uninterrupted and panoramic views to the gorge. It is the perfect holiday location with easy access to stunning walks around the Mendips and the gorge itself; with the caves, shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes all just a few minutes' walk away. Slightly further afield are attractions such as the beautiful city of Wells, more caves at Wookey Hole, the Somerset coast at Brean Down or Weston-Super-Mare, and of course Glastonbury with the Tor, alternative shops and the ancient Abbey. For anyone needing a gentle break from the pressures of life Gorge View Cottage has it all.More

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, there are als...
Getting around
Lots of good walking from the cottage door up on to the Mendips or out on to the Levels. We have to good bikes we lend to guests - good for (e.g.) a cycle along the Strawberry Line (old rail path). Buses service Wells (12km) and Weston-Super-Mare (21km). By car there are lots of great places, rural and city, in very easy reach.
