What travellers are saying
- We were staying nearby so felt we needed to visit. We have been before but not with our young son, who did enjoy it but £63 is alot of money (2adults and 1 child) for a 20 minute visit. I appreciate there are other attractions (which we didn’t visit on this occasion) but they are all free anyway. Just a tiny bit steep but still, we enjoyed it and it was dog friendly which is amazing. Wish more places were. I would say that the chap in the gift shop was really lovely, very enthusiastic and friendly.Written 6 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Very good clean and well stocked centre with plenty of things for toddlers and kids to enjoy -but a recent hike in prices ( annual pass was £100 now £135 for toddlers and kids was £125 now £150 makes this a very expensive place -added to that the centre is closed after school and although its advertised as a day pass the day starts at 10 and finishes at 2.30 so hardly a day -food is good but way overpriced -expect to pay £7 for a baguette -there's also no heating on which makes it very cold during the winter months -November -February -we visited 3 times during these months and it was very cold and many parents were talking about it. Its the best soft play around but prices should be geared to realistic figures rather than trying to rip off families.Written 18 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Enjoyed our visit as it was not too busy. Cheddar Cheese attraction is interesting - prices of cheese high because of the quality of the goods. Super little cottage tea room on the corner nearby takes you back in time.Written 19 May 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Near to Cheddar, a great spot for a walk. I did 2 circuits. No refreshments or toilets available and parking was busy and difficult to findWritten 20 November 2022
- On holiday one of our favourite pastimes is to go on a bike ride. This sounded really good. We hired bikes from Strawberry Line Cycles in Yatton, who are a community run group supplying bikes for all abilities & all ages, and they were very helpful in sorting out the correct bikes for us. The route is easy to follow & well signposted. We managed to do about 7 miles in total & I was disappointed we didn’t manage to get to Thatchers but we enjoyed the lovely Somerset views.Written 5 October 2022
- We are very lucky to have The Mendips AONB practically on our doorstep and as very keen walkers/hikers Burrington Combe and specifically the brilliant Burrington Ham are a favourite of ours.
Driving up Burrington Combe there is a free car park on the left hand side, which if you're lucky is usually home to an ice cream van. Perfectly positioned for an end of walk Mr. Whippy. The car park can get very busy depending on the time of visit.
We love driving up here to walk across Burrington Ham, especially in the summertime when it is filled with bees, butterflies and dragonflies. During one visit we were even lucky enough to see an adder cross our path. Our daughter was fascinated, as was I!
Burrington Ham is very open and peaceful. We sometimes stop off at the rocks (which our daughter loves to climb) for lunch before looping back to the car park. During our last visit we decided to come back through the wooded part where our daughter found dens to play in. Other times we have taken the route through the silver birches.
Such a wonderful part of The Mendips AONB. If visiting in the summer just be aware of ticks! I found a teeny tiny one in my leg when I returned home last time we visited.Written 1 May 2022
- We were treated to an absolutely fantastic tour and tasting at Cheddar Ales yesterday, the beers are delicious, the tour very interesting and our guide, brewer Joel, was extremely knowledgeable and patient letting me translate to our group of french guests. Can't recommend highly enough!Written 30 December 2022
- We had two visits to Cheddar Gorge. The first was in the evening when the roads and car parks where empty and almost no-one around. This was a delightful time to visit as during the day the place is busy: slow moving traffic, all car parks full by mid-morning etc. In the evening car parking is free; during the day we paid £5.20 (including fee to pay cashless).Written 6 January 2023
- We accessed the cliff top walk via Jacob’s ladder (next to Cox’s cave) then walked via the lookout tower to the Pulpit rock – we would have liked to have walked further (the walk is three miles long), but we had a long journey ahead of us and time was not on our side.
Access to Jacob's ladder and the cliff top walk was included as part of our Cheddar Gorge tickets (Adult - £20.95 ; Children - £15.70).Written 6 January 2023
- Gough's Cave is a must-see when visiting Cheddar Gorge. The cave has plenty of stalagmites and stalactites and a good audio commentary was included in the price. This cave is also where the wheels of Cheddar Cheese are matured.
Cheddar George day tickets (that includes Gough Caves and many other attractions) was £20.95 (Adult) and £15.70 (Child 5 to 15)Written 6 January 2023
- Large carboot sale and market both inside and out.. Lots of bargains to be had new and used. Friendly atmosphere, nice cafe.Written 29 November 2022
- Jacob’s ladder is just a long set of steps from the gorge to the hilltop (where the lookout tower, pulpit rock, and cliff top walk are). The steps have various passing/rest stops, but really are just a means of getting from A to B. Access to Jacob’s Ladder was included in our Cheddar Gorge tickets (Adult - £20.95; Children - £15.70).Written 6 January 2023
- A nice church, close to the village centre. Stain glass windows were beautiful.
Church was open to the public, even though there was no one there. Well worth a visit.Written 4 June 2019
- A visit to the Cheddar Gorge Lookout Tower was well worth the climb up Jacob’s ladder to see the views across the Mendips from the top of the lookout tower. Access to Jacob’s ladder, and the lookout tower, was included with our Cheddar Gorge tickets (Adult - £20.95 ; Children - £15.70).Written 6 January 2023
- This is a great cheese shop with some great cheeses with a chance to sample before you buy. The cheese was very enjoyable. Staff were friendly and helpful.Written 22 October 2022
