Best known for its dramatic gorge and as the origin of cheddar cheese, this parish is situated in the county of Somerset and lies within the boundary if the Mendhip Hills; an Area of Outstanding Beauty.
One of Britain’s most incredible natural landmarks the gorge is home to some spectacular landscape including cliffs and subterranean stalactite show caves. The area is therefore fantastic for hiking, caving and rock climbing, and for those who prefer a little less adrenalin, there are many scenic walks and cycle trails too.
Cheddar cheese has been produced here since the 12th Century and is to this day stored and matured in the Cheddar Caves. If you’re a fan of this delicious savoury snack, there’s no better place to sample some of the finest in the world.
There’s also plenty to keep children entertained at the local attraction of Wookey Hole where they will discover dinosaur models and playgrounds.
