We were enjoying the walk at first but then the path got steeper and rockier until we were almost climbing up using our hands as well as our feet to help balance. One of our party was 66 and eventually we decided that it was...More

Having done both Ebbor and Cheddar this holiday, I can see what people mean when they say that they prefer Ebbor. It does have the advantage of presenting the option of a quick smaller walk with a view from the car park at the top,...More

Took our two daughters (10 and 12) on this leisurely walk, took about an hour and a half to complete the circuit and saw some amazing views. Suggestions take water and snacks - there is nothing around, and wear sensible shoes as the ground can...More

We parked in the NT car park and took the longer red route for our walk. This was quite challenging up the rocks through the gorge but absolutely worth it as you were actually walking through the quiet gorge itself rather than around a busy...More

Car park with optional charge. Choice of 3 timed circular routes from 15 minutes to 1 hour. We chose the 1 hour route and set off over the wall. Some of the signs are confusing so common sense is much needed. A few steep steps...More

I adore Ebbor Gorge and it’s one of those places that makes me so fortunate to live in England! Whether it’s just stopping off for a quick picnic on the way home from a day out in Wells, or spending a few hours walking the...More

Having visited the disappointing Wookey caves in the morning, we ventured further up the limestone hill to Ebbor Gorge for the afternoon. Much smaller and less touristy then nearby Cheddar, it much quieter and more peacefull. Cheap parking at the top in an honesty pot....More

We were taken on a glorious 3 day “tour” of Somerset, by a friend and board member. With the little bit of business taken care of in London, we were her guests, and got to tour most of the area. From Wells, where we visited...More

We have been to Cheddar in the past but our BnB host told us about this off-the-beaten-path site. An absolute beauty spot, Ebbor Gorge has the occasional passerby, but for the most part, we were in solitude—our family and dog! It was peaceful, surprising and...More

We visited Ebbor Gorge twice, once in the height of summer, then later in the year when it rained. Both times we walked from Wookey Hole. It's a hard climb to the clifftop - but the view is stunning! Right across to Glastonbury Tor. Perfect...More
