YHA Cheddar

Nestled in the Mendips with Cheddar Gorge just a few minutes' walk away, this large Victorian house and accompanying annexe is the perfect short break destination for families, individuals and groups. If you're flying to or from Bristol Airport, YHA Cheddar makes for a great stopover as it is only 15 minutes' drive away.

The Youth Hostel makes a great base for an exciting activity break and activities for all abilities are provided by our partners Mendip Outdoor Pursuits. If high octane activities and adventures aren't your thing, you can take it easier with some wonderful local walks and cycle routes.

The Hostel

YHA Cheddar has 57 beds in a selection of dorm rooms and private rooms, some of which are en-suite. The Youth Hostel is housed in a large Victorian house and annexe which is a great base for activity breaks in Somerset.
