British families on the look-out for a staycation should look no further than the infamous Cheddar Gorge, as it has made its way into the Top 20 UK Holiday Spots that you probably haven’t heard of.
The “pretty village” that tempts all
Boasting world famous caves steeped with history and a gorge that has tempted millions of visitors every year - it’s not exactly surprising that Cheddar has been voted one of the top UK holiday spots.
Based on the increase in Trip Advisor reviews, Holidaylettings.co.uk published the list of top holiday locations that most Brits hadn’t taken a second look at.
A spokesman for the lettings company said of this list of aspiring towns and villages in the UK – Cheddar has made it into this top 20 list which is fantastic news.
This “pretty village” of Somerset gave its name to and was the very first to produce the UK’s most popular type of cheese; Cheddar, he added.
A top performing holiday spot
The nearby caves of Cheddar Gorge provide the ideal temperature and humidity for cheese, and in recent years the rugged limestone valley has even been recognised as one of the UK’s top natural wonders – encouraging more and more families to visit the stunning location and learn the history of the caves.
Cheddar sits on the southern tip of the Mendip Hills – an area of outstanding natural beauty, making it an ideal location for rock ramblers and hill hikers, the spokesman explained.
Due to its sudden surge in popularity, traffic surrounding the holiday spot of Cheddar has increased by a staggering 95.55% in the last year alone!
Cheddar came in sixth place in the top 20 list – losing out to Camber in East Sussex which landed first place and Tattershall, Lincolnshire scoring second position.
