“Stylish ecolodge in a great location in Cheddar”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Lovely holiday. Well renovated cottage with eco credentials in great location for exploring Cheddar. Welcoming host. Would highly recommend the Gardener's Arms as best local eatery and only a few minutes round the corner.

“Fantastic Place”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in January 2012

My daughter and I spent part of the Christmas Holidays at Gorge View Cottage. We had a wonderful time. The cottage is lovely with lots attention to detail and being environmentally sound, both things we appreciate. The views of the Gorge are beautiful and the location is perfect for peace and quite, while still being near many great areas. We spent a lot of time in Glastonbury. We also went on several local walks. In the gorge we saw sheep, hawks and other wildlife. It was magical in there even in the winter. We look forward to going back this next year.

“A real gem in a great location”
Reviewed 15 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed in the cottage over the Easter weekend and absolutely loved it. The cottage itself is more than big enough for 2 people, and is really homely and warm. It's been restored beautifully with lots of original features, as well as all the new eco considerations. The galley kitchen has everything you need and is at one end of the large open plan living area. The bedroom is very large and comfortable and has amazing views of the gorge to wake up to. The bathroom is small but has everything you need. Hugh was extremely helpful when we arrived, explaining how everything in the cottage worked and settling us in. He and his wife have provided lots of guides for the cottage itself and the surrounding area which we found really helpful. The cottage is right in the heart of Cheddar so all the shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions are right on the doorstep. The gorge itself is magnificent and we would definitely recommend the gorge top walk.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gorge View Cottage and would definitely recommend it.

“Beautiful, relaxing and well thought out cottage a stone's throw away from the center of Cheddar”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

When you first look around the cottage you are really able to appreciate the thought that has gone into it. The owners have designed the cottage from scratch and made sure that it really has everything you need; even on a long stay. The general free layout gives a very spacious and relaxing environment. There are also plenty of storage space to hide all your belongings and your suitcase which really makes you feel at home compared to living out of a suitcase.

The kitchen had all the equipment you would need to make meals from scratch. If the items are not in the kitchen area then having a peek under the stairs usually ends in a successful find. The bathroom has a nice layout and was very clean. The bedroom was a gorgeous place to wake up in due to the multiple skylights facing out towards the Gorge (although there were the options for a privacy blind or full blackout blind if you wanted some privacy).

The cottage had an eco friendly and very modern theme. I think that they got the balance perfect personally. Some fun touches we liked were the touch sensitive bedside lamps and dimmable lighting throughout the cottage. They also provided plenty of material regarding local visits and also about the history of the building, plus some tips on keeping eco on your stay.

The owners were always happy to help with any inquiries but were also equally happy for you to be independent. This made the stay really feel like you've got a second home. Both myself and my fiance really enjoyed being able to have total freedom while still having the benefit of cooking our own meals and having our own space. This beautiful little cottage was absolutely perfect and ticked every box we could wish for! I could keep on typing but the real only way to describe the place is by going to stay there yourselves.

“Absolutely beautiful little cottage”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 for a stay in November 2012

I'm a bit late writing this review but I still have high praise when it comes to this self-catered accommodation. When deciding where to stay in Cheddar, it was the environmentally friendly nature of the cottage as well as its beautiful furnishings that made us choose Gorge View Cottage. Mary and Huw were very good at replying to emails regarding arrival and Mary met us and showed us around the cottage.
The only thing we could find fault in when it came to the cottage was the use of a futon instead of a sofa (which I know can't really be helped). The wetroom shower, underfloor heating, kingsized memory foam bed and the view from the bedroom were all great little touches that make the cottage unique.
Definitely suitable for those without a car as the location is very central and Huw and Mary encourage those travelling by public transport (like us) by providing a discount!
We cannot wait to come back again, definitely worth a stay!

We look forward to seeing you back here again, and we'd like to reassure you and future guests that the rather inadequate futon has recently been replaced with a comfy new sofa.
Thanks to all guests for such wonderful reviews!
Mary & Huw.
