Further afield

Cheddar Gorge

Roughly 1 hour from Bailbrook in the Mendick Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Cheddar Gorge is one of the UK’s most amazing natural landmarks. At 400 feet deep and three miles long, it is a wonderful place to explore, with prehistoric stories to tell. Take the cliff-top walk and revel in outstanding vistas while you are 900ft above sea level. Or, for the dare-devils, embark on a caving, climbing or abseiling experience. You can find out more about these here.

Discover the Cotswolds

Bath is positioned within the southern edge of the Cotswolds, and is the perfect gateway to delving further into this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Renowned for its honey-coloured limestone villages and gently rolling landscapes, there is an array of charming places to visit, like Calcot Manor, Sudeley Castle and Cleve Hill (the highest spot in the Cotswolds).
