A sustainable haven with fantastic views of Cheddar Gorge
Gorge View Cottage is an award-winning sustainable four-star self-catering holiday cottage for two, nestling in the foothills of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Originally an old gardeners cottage, it was recently fully renovated to exacting environmental standards whilst maintaining its natural charm, with attention paid to sustainability and comfort throughout.
Situated in a small lane, conveniently located in Cheddar village, the cottage has uninterrupted and panoramic views to the nearby gorge. It stands opposite the main Gorge View house, and customers can have access to the house’s working permaculture garden.
For anyone needing a gentle break from the pressures of life Gorge View Cottage has it all; a haven for walkers and nature lovers, with easy access to stunning walks around the Mendips and the famous gorge. The caves, shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes all just a few minutes' walk away.
