You've probably already heard of Cheddar, maybe because the name makes you think of cheese! Perched on the edge of the Mendip Hills, Cheddar is surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful countryside and sits 500 feet atop Cheddar Gorge. Famous for being the home and birthplace of Cheddar cheese, you can still see what this historic cheese-making process consists of by visiting the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company.
As well as being home to world-famous produce, Cheddar is the perfect destination for a cottage break for a large group, and it's the ideal base to explore the stunning Somerset countryside. Whether you're looking for a secluded spot with enough garden space for all your kids to run around in or a modern barn conversion for a touch of luxury, we've got something to suit everyone. Your perfect holiday is just a few clicks away!
As well as getting a taste of the famous Cheddar cheese, the Cheddar Gorge and Cheddar Caves, formed over one million years ago during the last Ice Age, are definitely worth a visit. Cheddar Gorge is also home to Britain's oldest complete skeleton, known as "the Cheddar Man".
