If you’re looking to whisk your other half away for a special anniversary weekend, where you can spend quality time with your other half, then Somerset could be the perfect location. Especially if the two of you enjoy adventurous time spent outdoors, then Cheddar Gorge could tick all the boxes of an incredible weekend away. One of Britain’s most spectacular landmarks, and one of the country’s most popular attractions, Cheddar Gorge has awe-inspiring cliffs and incredible caves for you to explore. For some great ideas of how you can enjoy a trip to Cheddar Gorge, read on below.

Cheddar Gorge

Cheddar GorgeThe spectacular pinnacles of the cliffs and the incredible 400ft deep caves of Cheddar Gorge means there’s something for everyone to do when visiting. From cliff top walks to Gough’s cave (which is over 500,000 years old), you can spend more than one day exploring everything the site has to offer. The site, as you might have guessed, is linked to famous cheddar cheese and the year round 11-degree temperature makes the caves the perfect place to mature Cheddar cheese, which you can see packed into shelves in the cave. If you want to work up an appetite, then the climb up 274 steps of Jacob’s Ladder is a must. If you can manage 48 more once you’re there, you’ll be rewarded with a view of the Mendips and lush meadows of the Somerset levels, stretching 22 miles east to west.

If you want to stay away whilst you’re in Somerset to really switch off from the outside world and make the most of the quality time the two of you can spend together, then look no further than the White Hart Hotel in Wells. The hotel has recently just beaten off stiff competition to win Channel 4’s Four in a Bed, and offers guests a warm, relaxing stay with food served by their award-winning chef. On top of Cheddar Gorge, the hotel is in close proximity to Bristol, Bath and Glastonbury, Clarks Village shopping outlet and Longleat Safari Park, which was the first drive-through park of its type outside of Africa.

With so much to see and do in the area, you’ll want to book in plenty of time to ensure you can have the dates of your anniversary. To book your stay at the White Hart Hotel, call today on 01749 672 056 contact us through the website here or email reservations@whitehartwells.com.
