Natural wonder: The village of Cheddar

Natural wonder: The village of Cheddar

Perhaps best known for being the point of origin for the world's favourite cheese, the village of Cheddar in Somerset may not be one of the most known settlements when people are looking for somewhere to live. However, the village has far more to offer, with many places of interest for those who have a keen eye for nature and enjoy walking, and can be ideal for people who want a quieter life by looking for property for sale in Cheddar.

Cheddar is a large village located in Somerset, with a population of just some 5,000, which makes it a perfect spot for homebuyers who are looking for a location away from the big city, perhaps those who want to enjoy their retirement in a more peaceful location where they can enjoy the scenery and the surroundings.

As well as the cheese, the village also lends its name to a famous British landmark; Cheddar Gorge. This is the largest gorge in the whole of the United Kingdom, and is thought to be the attraction for more than half a million visitors every year. For those seeking out somewhere historical and natural, this makes Cheddar one of the more favourable destinations, as they can see a site of outstanding natural beauty.

Surrounding the village, there are also numerous rural areas for people to walk in, ideal for those who are trying to keep fit in their older years when living in the countryside.

Back in the village itself, there are also a number of landmarks people may be interested in seeing, such as the historical 15th century market cross, the Church of St Andrew, and the only remaining producer of Cheddar cheese in the destination of its origin, where people can learn about the famous foodstuff.

Another plus for any small settlement is that it has decent transport links to shopping areas in bigger towns. Cheddar provides a bus link to Weston-Super-Mare and Wells, and good links to the motorways nearby.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801351790-ADNFCR
