A feast for your senses

Cheddar Cheese has been produced here since the 12th Century and to this day, is still stored in the Cheddar Caves to mature.

Cheddar and the surrounding countryside have plenty to tempt everyone’s tastes, from cosy tearooms and welcoming restaurants to traditional pubs and takeaways. 

Home-cooked food, real ale and local ciders are available at the Bath Arms Hotel for example, whilst the quaint Lion Rock Tearooms, based at the foot of the famous Lion Rock, serve traditional cream teas and has been voted one of the best tearooms in the UK.

Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy a visit to The Sweet Kitchen and of course, you can buy Cheddar cheese straight from The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company where you can see the cheese being made in the dairy.

For a real treat, book a table at the Michelin-starred Pony and Trap in Chew Magna, around 16 miles away.

Somerset is home to numerous fairs and food festivals.  The Wells Food Festival features a wide range of events and attractions including gourmet meals and over 100 producers and street vendors in the Artisan Market where a diverse mix of local food and drinks are showcased. 


Treasures on your doorstep

The Cheddar Valley Railway opened in 1870 and was known as the Strawberry Line, as it passed many of the village’s strawberry-growing fields. ‘Strawberry Special’ trains then ferried the fruit all over the country until 1965.

There’s so much going on in Cheddar that you’re sure to feel at home very quickly – from the fun annual Duck Race, the Cheddar Arts and Fringe Festivals to the free Walking Festival that takes place over the August Bank Holiday.  There really is something for everyone.

Cheddar’s unique location means you can try a whole range of different activities, from rock-climbing, caving and gliding. The Cheddar Reservoir is a short stroll from Strawberry Felds and it is here that you could try your hand at fishing or sailing too.

As well as Cheddar Gorge, other local attractions include Wookey Hole Caves, 

Glastonbury Tor and the seaside at Weston-super-Mare.
