They live next door to the Orchard which is useful but are very discreet .They can offer invaluable insight into places to eat, shop and explore during your stay. We take great pride in the decor and cleanliness of the property. The surrounding gardens are well tended and very colourful. You will not find owners who are more passionate about their property or location. Somerset is a very beautiful County. ,
Why Carol Roberts chose Cheddar
The Orchard is a very large bungalow and underwent a complete refurbishment four years ago. It is beautifully situated in the heart of Cheddar. It is in its own cul-de-sac with off road parking. The driveway has been tarmacked recently so everything makes for very easy access and walking.

Very spacious property with good off road parking for cars . Inside was well presented. Lounge and bedrooms are big . Well equipped house with almost everything you would want. The house is close to all attractions we needed , most within a 40min drive. All in all a very pleasant stay in a lovely property in a beautiful place.
Pleasure to have this family stay, they seem to make the most of their break enjoying the many attractions accessable from Cheddar. I would welcome you for a return visit.
A wonderful, spacious bungalow. Well and thoughtfully equipped. A comfortable home from home.
This is our fourth visit to this fascinating area with it's varied and intriguing scenery. There are always new places to discover such as The Haynes Motor Museum and Oakham Treasures which evoke memories of childhood and times past, as well as special places to revisit. Barrington Court and Tyntesfeild House both different National Trust properties are always worth a return visit and you can never tire of nearby Wells with it's unique Cathedral and the peace of the Bishop's Palace. Finally there is the contrasting landscape just on the doorstep, with the awe inspiring gorge and Mendip Hills and the levels so rich in wild life. Most definitely a place and property to visit again and again.
