Things to do

 

Walks

We are spoilt for choice over the amount of  outstanding walks in and around Cheddar and the Mendip Hills. You can walk from village to village/Town just walking the hills. You will be over whelmed with the views looking down across the (now very famous ) Somerset levels.

Mountain Biking

Colin has a passion for mountain biking across the mendip hills. Why don’t you take the golden oppotunity to join him and his friends on a mendip adventure. If you love the outdoors and seek a thrilling ride, whist enjoying some sights you may not know about, then bring your bikes along with you when you stay with us at Bramblewood B&B and ride the mendip hills. There is a secure storage and bike wash facility, you would be able to carry out any maintenance required to ensure the smooth running of your bike.  You can also use the laundry facilities to alleviate having to take home dirty washing. All levels of ability can be catered for, all this is exclusive to Bramblewood B&B guests. So if you fancy taking on the Mendips please contact Amanda on 07787548455 to book your weekend of fun.

Coming Events

November

The largest illuminated carnival in the world 

If you are staying in the area you really will want to watch one of these carnivals. It’s free to watch and the streets come alive. If you have any change the clubs will be grateful if you would put some into their buckets. There are loads of food stands etc. So you can enjoy the display, while you munch into a naughty burger and sing along with the floats as they pass you by. The starting times for the carnivals are 7.15pm. You will need to be there early, as a lot of the roads will be closed off. It truly is the best carnival you are likely to see.

December

Cheddar Festive Shopping Night

The event is normally held on the first Friday in December from 6pm.

Every year, a few weeks before Christmas, the shops and cafes of Cheddar open late one evening. It’s an ideal opportunity to buy unusual gifts whilst enjoying the festive atmosphere.

A typical schedule involves a firework launch, choirs and bands dotted around the village, candlelit tours of the caves, with the Lower Gorge and much of the village decked out with Christmas trees and lights. There are normally pig roasts at two or three of Cheddar’s pubs, a farmer’s market and a prize draw. Santa usually puts in an appearance too! Why not come in fancy dress, bring candles and torches! For more details see the Cheddar Village website.
