Description from owner
Luxury 2 bed cottage with the most spectacular views of Cheddar Gorge from its own private balcony. Check out the photos! Located at the foot of Cheddar Gorge (but in an elevated position to take full advantage of the views) this pretty, stone built cottage could not be better situated to explore all that Cheddar (and the rest of Somerset) has to offer. It also has free Wifi.
Changeover day is ordinarily Saturday for weekly bookings and short breaks may also be available (outside of the peak summer season) for a minimum of 3 x nights (please note that Friday - Sunday = weekend nightly pricing). Please enquire before booking for short breaks and also for prices at Christmas.
If you want to, you can just park up and leave the car as all of the cafes, tearooms, pubs and shops of Cheddar (as well as Cheddar caves and the Gorge itself) are within a few minutes walk. Bus stops to Wells and Weston Super Mare are just around the corner and Axbridge village, with its pretty medieval square, is within walking distance too.
Bath, Bristol, Glastonbury and Taunton are just a short drive away, as is the picturesque Chew Valley and its surrounding villages.
Perfect for ramblers, cyclists, fishing enthusiasts (with Chew Valley lake and Blagdon lake nearby), bird watchers, rock climbers or photographers (the ever-changing scenery is fascinating) - or just relaxing in total comfort - Highcroft has all you need for a wonderful break from the norm. And do feel free to bring man's best friend! Up to 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome; with country walks starting just a stone's throw from the door, your doggy companions will be in heaven.
Sleeping 4 people, Highcroft will suit couples, small families (children must be over 12 years old, please) or a group of friends (of course, solo holidaymakers are very welcome too!) Please note however that, because of its elevated position, Highcroft is not suitable for those with limited mobility.
Downstairs, this lovely property has a modern sitting room (with comfortable sofa bed), a bright kitchen diner, an understairs storage cupboard and a cloakroom (toilet and hand-basin). Upstairs you will find 1 x double bedroom, 1 x single bedroom and a shower room. There is plenty of cupboard space to store your clothes and belongings. A lockable storage area for bikes etc is available outside.
Both the kitchen and the sitting room have french doors opening out onto the decked balcony where those stunning views over Cheddar Gorge will become apparent - there really is no better place to watch the sun popping up over the Mendips, first thing in the morning.
Highcroft also has its own private, enclosed, patio garden with waterfall and small pond - quite the nicest spot for a lazy lunch or to sit with a glass of wine (or three!) in the evenings.
Parking for one car is available on the owner's drive with on-street parking available a short walk away. The cottage has its own private pedestrian access.

There was even a welcome hamper of bread, milk, butter. The directions Andrew and Helen provided were exact and we had no issues finding the property.
