romantic things to do in Cheddar

September 16, 2016

Spending some time in Cheddar with your loved one and looking for romantic things to do? We’ve got you covered with our top 5 things to do in Cheddar. Set in the magical Mendip Hills, Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa is a beautiful setting for a romantic getaway, with 5 Star luxury accommodation I might add too (hot tubs and everything…) Here at Darwin Escapes HQ, we have come up with the top 5 romantic things to do in Cheddar with your other half…

Walk through Ebbor Gorge

Just a few minutes away from Cheddar Woods in the Mendip Hills, a stones throw away from the Wookey Hole Village lies the untouched and stunning Ebbor Gorge. The perfect place for a couple to disappear into the wilderness on a romantic walk, and maybe even a picnic while getting immersed in meadows, flowers, wildlife and a peaceful atmosphere. A place you wont see another human being for hours, a place to relax and get away from the everyday grind.

Hot Air Ballooning

Okay so this is technically in Bath, not Cheddar, but it’s only about a 30 minute drive away. Pop into the glorious Victoria Park, have a wander around and then go to find Bath Hot Air Balloon rides in the centre of the park. Enjoy a breath taking, birds eye view of the city just the two of you, and add the extra romantic touch with a champagne flight.

Eden Spa Treatment

Indulge in a luxury treatment at Cheddar Woods’ own Eden Spa, a double treatment together will add some romance and relaxation to your stay away, without having to leave the park! Refresh with a full body massage, Aromatherapy Associates massage or a wonderful Jessica Nails mani-pedi. There will be something for the both of you, before strolling back to your lodge style accommodation, all relaxed and refreshed.

Afternoon Tea

The Lion Rock Tea Rooms at the foot of the breath taking Cheddar Gorge has a delicious menu of afternoon tea. Feel all sophisticated and fancy while scoffing some cake with your other half, ring and book the little nook room for some romance and privacy, add the champagne afternoon tea for an extra feeling of fancy shamncy.

Wine & Cheese Tasting

There isn’t a specific place to do this, but there are enough cheese shops that offer delicious, mouth watering cheese and will help you pick the best wine to go with your cheesey choice, I recommend The Cheddar Gorge Cheese Co. who make the only real Cheddar cheese in town. Then head back to your 5 Star accommodation (have I told you it’s 5 Star?) and enjoy your wine & cheese tasting night in front of the fire (or TV). Romantic, food and cheap… perfect night in for me!

Have a lovely romantic break at Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa in the heart of the beautiful Somerset Mendip Hills…

Happy Adventuring Love Birds…
