Location !!!

Guest access

Our garden is also for guests to enjoy . An additional garden room is also for you to use, with simple cooking facilities and extra space for dining . This room is not heated, therefore we tend to not use it for guests in the winter time .The shower/toilet is exclusively for our visitors , located 10 meters from the hut.

Interaction with guests

Happy to help!

Getting around

Buses to Wells and Weston every hour.
Nearest train station is Yatton ,and there is a lovely cycle path from there to Cheddar ,about 10 miles.
Falcon coach runs from Bristol to Plymouth almost every hour , will stop to pick up and drop off , on the A38 at Shute Shelve . From there it is a pleasant 3 mile walk along a mainly off road route to Cheddar, several of my visitors have used this service to get to us.

Other things to note

Solo Travellers ,I am happy to offer better rates for one guest ,please enquire and I will quote you a price .
There is space in our garden for a small tent or two for extra guests if they wish to camp.
It is now heading into the colder winter months , just to point out to guests ,the only heat source in the hut is the wood stove ,and if you wish to be warm and cosy in there , you will need to manage the fire lighting and keeping it going , a relatively easy task! We supply all the wood etc.

We had a lovely stay in this charming unique shepherds hut. We assumed the facilities would of been basic given the nature of the accommodation however, every need was catered for. Basic cooking facilities tea and coffee, water, games and a lovely bathroom with private access and towels were all included. The wood burning stove kept us nicely cosy through the night, adding to the magic of the stay. Chris is a great host and makes you feel very welcomed, would be happy to stay again any time. Many thanks.

This was my first time using airbnb and a generally positive experience. Chris' place is deserving of all the good reviews, it was was as described, clean and we enjoyed our stay. Only thing to point out to future visitors is that we found the narrow hill climb a bit tight in a van (made it though with no dings).

There are few things that go far and above the expectations you had of them. And Chris' hut is one of those things. It already looked lovely from the picture, but in real life, it's beautiful. There is so much character inside the hut itself, the fire is splendid, the garden is wonderful. Chris was an excellent host. Friendly and always ready to help. The location was brilliant too. Cheddar has stunning nature and the cliff-top gorge is a few minutes from the hut. If you want to be surrounded by nature and have some gorge/cave adventure, while living in a cosy, beautiful hut belonging to a great host, come stay at this place. You'll be glad you did.

Absolutely brilliant. A lovely spot and perfect for exploring Cheddar Gorge. Chris was really helpful and the hut (plus the extra garden house) were loads of fun. Also really well equipped.

We had a wonderful (if brief) stay at the Hut on the Hill. Chris was a great host and showed us around when we arrived before leaving us to it. The Hut itself is cute and very clean, with a comfy bed and a fire laid ready in the wood burning stove. Everything we needed was provided. A beautiful garden with a back gate leading up to the top of the gorge meant it was easy to head out for a hike. We would definitely love to return.

Hi There , I live right next to Cheddar Gorge in an old cottage with my teenage daughter and various animals. I love the outdoors ,cycling, walking ,camping or just lazing in the sunshine. We live in such a lovely place, it seemed the obvious thing to do was to accept guests from around the world to share this beautiful countryside on our doorstep. I have a relaxed approach to hosting , happy to give advice about things to do and see ,or just to let you discover for yourselves what is out there. I have spent a large part of my life in the cycle trade so bike repairs is second nature to me ,I also enjoy working with natural elements of wood and stone.
I do not own a smartphone at the moment so it can sometimes take a few hours for me to respond to a request, so please be patient!
