“Amazing Hosts, Ideal Location and Lovely Cottage!” I visited Cheddar for the weekend for my Dad's 63rd birthday with my partner, and my Dad's 2 dogs.
Helen is a perfect host, she makes sure you feel at home for the duration of your trip. She is happy to recommend walks, restaurants, pubs and days out. I was amazed at the personal touches which really did make the difference, when we arrived we were already supplied with tea / coffee / milk / sugar / biscuits and even a birthday cake for my Dad!
The location is ideal, just facing the ticket / tourist information point for Cheddar Gorge. There are numerous tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and a tesco and sainsbury's nearby. So there is always something to keep you busy if you have any energy left after Gorge Walks!
“Fab Accommodation & Location” Myself, mother and sister booked The Millstream Retreat for a girly weekend away, men and children free! The location was fab! Literally a 3 minute walk from The Cheddar Gorge Caves themselves! Stunning location with easy links to Glastonbury, Western Super-Mare, Bristol, Bath and the Coast! There are restaurants, pubs and shops all on your doorstep offering a wide range of cuisine!
The accommodation was perfect for what we were looking for and the apartment was very well represented and clean and tidy! You can not fault the hospitality of the landlords! Checking in and out was a quick and simple process. Would definitely reccommend The Millstream Retreat and would definitely return!:) Thank you for a fab stay! X
It may be known for being the namesake of the nation's favourite cheese, but this little village isn't cheesy. In fact, it's delightfully traditional and is the perfect destination for a family getaway.
Why not book your holiday rental in Cheddar today so you can start exploring?
One of the most interesting things about Cheddar is that the Cheddar Gorge sits on its northern edge. It's the largest gorge in the UK and is one of the biggest attractions in the area!
People have lived within and around the gorge since neolithic times – there was once a Saxon palace there! Now it is a quaint village with cobbled streets and a strong community feel! See what you can discover during your stay.
What To Do
If you're a fan of cheese, go to the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company! It's the only place in the village that still makes the cheese this area is known for. They hand-make each piece of unpasteurised cheddar and long-mature it in the traditional way. You can learn everything you'd possibly want to know about the process and can even take some treats home from the gift shop.
Some people don't know this, but Cheddar is also known for its strawberries. Make sure you try some during your stay!

Cheddar Holiday Cottage - relax in Somerset
Spacious, comfortable family friendly cottage
A lovely cottage nestled at the edge of a beautiful woodland with easy walking access to all amenities and attractions in Cheddar and Cheddar Gorge. The cottage is spacious with comfortable beds and a lovely living room with wood burning stove. We settled in straight away, as we arrived to find tea, coffee, fresh milk and chocolate brownies, as well as cheddar cheese in the fridge! The cottage was so well equipped, with everything we needed and more. The kids loved playing in the garden with Vanessa and Jerry's dog, Brian and we all enjoyed playing the games we found in the living room! We used the barbecue and large table and patio area to cook and eat outside one evening and finished off toasting marshmallows over a campfire that Jerry had set up especially for us. Vanessa and Jerry couldn't have been more helpful and were always there if we needed anything. A fantastic base for exploring Cheddar and Somerset. …
Clover Croft lodge - Tor Farm
great lodge with all that you need and to a high standard. The hot tub just makes the place and so quiet we spent 2 hours every night just chilling in the hot tub. …
Somerset Lodge - Tor Farm
What a fabulous place. The lodge is spacious, modern and really warm. The kitchen has everything you need for a self catering break. The view, the peace and quiet, and Mother Nature at her best! The highlight of the break of course is the wonderful hot tub - basking in the warm waters gazing up at the stars. Would definitely recommend a stay at Tor Farm. …
Highcroft Cottage, central Cheddar
Arrived home today after a week in this beautiful little cottage. Nothing negative to say whatsoever! Everything available for our arrival including milk and tea, bread, butter and jam Perfect location with everything you need within walking distance, and a perfect view over Cheddar gorge for the 1st cuppa of the day from the balcony.
Highly recommended ******************* …
The apartment was totally spotless. Everything was in excellent condition. A beautiful welcome basket and fridge items were supplied along with the majority of items you would find in your own home. You only need to bring shampoo and personal items with you. We were so impressed. Ashley (in the shop) is such a lovely gentleman and very helpful. It was the perfect location - right in the gorge. Step out of the apartment and all the restaurants, takeaways, ice-cream parlours and shops are there along with the Cheddar gorge, cheese factory and crazy golf. Wells and Wookey Hole nearby are great and Bristol was great for shopping. The walks are amazing and the views are magnificent. It was so relaxing. I usually get homesick after a week, but this time I didn't want to leave. I went with my husband, daughter and her boyfriend. We all loved this holiday. …
The Orchard 4*Quality in Tourism, VisitEngland
Excellent Holiday Accomodation
My family and I stayed at the Orchard in August and had a lovely time as the accommodation was beautiful. It was well equipped, very clean, great position and one of the best holiday accommodation venues we have stayed in. Carol was a great host and made us so welcome. We were a party of four adults and found there was so much space in the bungalow. I thoroughly recommend you stay here. …
