Extraordinary Experiences

Nestling at the foot of the stunning Mendip Hills, Cheddar has been a welcoming place for visitors since the earliest times. Renown for the amazing gorge, the village features some fine buildings and many great independent cafés, restaurants, shops and pubs, and the small medieval market town of Axbridge is only a 30 minute walk away.

Today Cheddar is a haven for anyone who enjoys both natural beauty and outdoor adventure while also being conscious of the need to look after the natural environment.

Our Core Values

  • Responsible enjoyment of the natural environment.

  • The conservation of the earth’s resources and the protection of wildlife habitats.

  • Access for all – facilities and support for people of all abilities.
