  • "Comfortable and spacious."

    Location perfect. Had read that parking was tight, our friends had a transit van with bikes on the back and they managed to get through the gates with a little shuffling.. The cottage is a little dated but very clean and comfortable, a little attention is needed to the gates, back gate and shower screen. Sadly no BBQ. Could also do with an instruction folder rather than having to hunt through drawers and notice boards looking for back door key, wifi codes, rubbish days etc.There is a Tesco Express and cycle hire at the end of the road. The tourist part of Cheddar is only a 10 minute walk away. Would recommend this cottage.

  • "The cottage is in a great location."

    Cheddar is a lovely village and we really enjoyed our stay. The interior of the cottage is a little tired and in need of some cosmetic refurbishment, but overall had everything we needed for our stay. Would recommend and would stay there again.

  • "Great location."

    Great space and facilities in cottage. Could do with a deep clean and perhaps a de clutter of the ornaments. Parking entrance was very tight but appreciated the off road parking.

  • "One thing that needs highlighting is the parking."

    ......yes, there is off street parking for three cars but the entrance is very small. We drive a Range Rover Evoque (not the biggest car in the world) and it was very tight, it would have been useful to have known about the restricted access.

Walkers can follow a nearby footpath which leads to the summit of the Cheddar Gorge from where you access many other footpaths and discover the surrounding area.

Take a scenic drive towards the stunning coastline for a range of local sandy beaches where you can treat the children to an ice cream, or simply let them run and play in the sand, while you soak up the sunshine.

About the location


Wells 9 miles; Weston-super-Mare 12 miles.

The large Somerset village of Cheddar is a major tourist destination on the edge of the Mendip Hills, renowned for SSSI Cheddar Gorge, the largest gorge in Britain, which includes several show caves such as Gough’s Cave, through which Britain’s biggest underground river runs. The Cheddar area is unique; apart from the chasm, the Cheddar Gorge cliffs are Britain’s highest inland limestone craggs and create a spectacular sight. The village gave its name to Cheddar cheese and has also been a centre for strawberry growing, the crop being transported on the railway, which now provides a fabulous cycle path. Cyclists will also enjoy the picturesque paths that cross the Somerset Levels, while Wells - the country’s smallest city, with it’s beautiful cathedral, is perfect for culture lovers. Visit the ancient town of Glastonbury, well known for its annual music festival and connections to all things mystical. Alternatively, the scenic Somerset Coast and Exmoor National Park are both easily accessible, truly spoiling you for choice of how to spend your holiday!
