“Just a darling little cottage”
Reviewed April 30, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage was exactly as described. It had everything needed for our stay. It was warm and cosy and the view up to the Gorge was stunning. The garden of the main house is huge and you can wander round at will. It was a steep climb up from the village but we managed and we are in our 70's.

“Brilliant accommodation and view of Gorge”
Reviewed April 27, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Friday to friday booking is ideal for us seniors now.The cottage has everything needed for a single or couple,including Wifi to keep in contact with people.Took the bikes,good cycling on the levels.Good walking in the mendips- did both Cheddar and Ebbor gorges amonst the walking.The weather was great, meaning we could get out and about everyday of the week.
Went to Wells twice ,once on the bike and again on the bus.
Will go again.

“Exceptional cottage”
Reviewed March 31, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My husband and I stayed at Gorge View cottage for 2 nights, it was a surprise birthday getaway present for me. We couldn't recommend this cottage highly enough. It's cosy, beautifully built and decorated, extremely environmentally friendly and very comfortable. The owners Huw and Mary were very helpful and welcoming, and really went out their way to make this trip very special and memorable.It was such a pleasure and joy to return to the cottage after a day of exploring, and enjoy it's calming and warming ambience. The cottage is ideally placed to explore the surrounding Mendip hills and of course Cheddar Gorge itself. There are some beautiful walks around here and stunning views from the cottage itself. Nearby Wells is definitely worth a visit. This is a lovely retreat for a break away, thank you Huw and Mary.

Reviewed March 13, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What a fabulous find..great hosts, great cottage in a great location .The cottage was warm and welcoming, as were Huw and Mary - I can't recommend Gorge View Cottage enough to any couple visiting Cheddar and the surrounding Somerset towns.

“A little Cornish gem”
Reviewed January 8, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed for 3 nights for a post Xmas break. What a wonderful cottage. Superbly renovated and a good eye for detail which makes it a really relaxing stay . Close to the gorge- walking distance- and a good base for exploring Somerset. You would not be disappointed !! Thanks Huw and Mary

Such an easy and pleasant find for a long weekend. Cottage was very clean and accomodating. View is spectacular and a short walk to lots of beautiful walks and fantastic caves.

“Perfect”
Reviewed November 6, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We spent 4 days in the Cheddar Gorge area and this place was just amazing. Short walk to town, a garden in the back that the owners welcome you to enjoy (great tomatoes). The bed is so comfy you don't want to get up. We are already talking of going back as we have friends who live a couple miles from there and did not even scratch the surface of things to do. Note to other Americas, bring your shampoo, shower gel, etc as the cottage did not supply.
Kitchen had everything you needed and then some. Just a perfect get away place.
