Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Holiday cottages in Cheddar are ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. The historic little town is famous for its gorge and incredible caves. Visitors to the area can explore numerous footpaths revealing remarkable views of the countryside. Caving and rock climbing are also possible. The Mendip Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, borders Cheddar and is a wonderful place for walking and cycling.

There is a wide, flat, and sandy beach here that is well suited for picnics, sunbathing, and playing in the sand. The beach at Burnham on Sea is famous for its nine-legged wooden lighthouse, views of the Welsh coast, and donkey rides for children. The area is well serviced with plenty of nearby restaurants and cafés.

-Golf: The course at Burnham and Berrow Golf Club is among the most spectacular in the region. Looking over the coast, the views from the 18-hole course, which dates back to the 19th century, are magnificent. Its undulating terrain and sea breezes make it challenging enough for experts, but it's still approachable for beginners. Visitors staying in a Sedgemoor holiday cottage closer to Bridgwater can take a short drive to either Cannington Centre Golf Course or Enmore Park Golf Course.

-Food and drink: Somerset is well known for its cider production – restaurants and pubs throughout Sedgemoor proudly have local ciders on the menu. Another culinary highlight of this region are dairy products: cheese making has a rich history here, particularly in Cheddar.

The parking area was great as we did not have to park on the road! That's a plus on a narrow street! We were close to the Red Cow Pub which has excellent food and a very friendly place to spend an evening meal. We enjoyed out stay and would give five gold stars to Peggy's Place!

Thankyou so much Justine , we will definitely be back x
