Additional Location Information

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 also the flat Somerset Levels - reclaimed from sea and marsh centuries ago: today's coast is just 10 miles away.
Within 15 minutes drive you can be in the picturesque market city of Wells (England's smallest city) with its glorious cathedral, Bishop's Palace, market square and medieval buildings. Ten minutes more and you are in Glastonbury home to the mystical Tor, the famous festival, historic abbey grounds, and many alternative shops and cafes. And further afield are national parks like Exmoor, with England's south coast just over an hour and half's drive.
Cheddar is easily reached by train (mainline to Bristol or Weston-Super-Mare) or coach or even plane to the International Airport just 20 minute away. If you are driving it is a simple 10 mile drive from the M5 motorway exit. To reward the more sustainable guests we offer a discount to those coming by foot, bike or public transport. Cheddar is on the National Cycle Network (path #26) known as the Strawberry Line - almost entirely traffic free from Yatton using the the old rural trail track, and one day on to Wells. National Cycle Route #3 from Bristol runs across the Mendips coming close to the top of the gorge.
