About the Owner

The owners of The Orchard, James and Carole have lived all their lives in Cheddar. They live next door to the Orchard which is useful but are very discreet .They

can offer invaluable insight into places to eat, shop and

explore during your stay.

We take great pride in the decor and cleanliness of the

property. The surrounding gardens are well tended and

very colourful.

You will not find owners who are more passionate about their property or location. Somerset is a very beautiful County.

Our stay at the Orchard - Oct 2016

  • 5 of 5

An excellent place to stay. The property was spotless and well maintained. All tableware, pots, pans, etc. were of very good quality and in an excellent condition. White goods looked like new and cooker was more than adequate. Property was very spacious with good quality furniture, carpets etc. The main bedroom is en-suite and with the additional family bathroom there is more than adequate bathroom facilities. Location of property is ideal for visiting surrounding points of interest and the property has excellent parking facilities with space for several cars. Description of property was very accurate and the owners were a delight to meet and proved very helpful in orientating us regarding places to see and sites to visit.

In all we had an excellent stay at the orchard and would highly recommend this property to friends, relatives and anyone else looking for a first class holiday let.

A Holiday Home to visit again and again

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to Orchard Bungalow. As before we found the facilities in this well maintained, homely bungalow to be of a very high standard. My mother is 95 years old so it is important to know that you will find not only a friendly and helpful welcome from the owners but also a supportive one. To us it is a home from home.

I would not hesitate to recommend this bungalow to friends and relatives, indeed relatives stay with us while we are there.

Cheddar and the surrounding area is such a beautiful, interesting place and we very much enjoy visiting old favourite, such as Wells and Barrington Court. But even on a third visit we discovered new places of interest, Oakham Museun and Dyrham Place. I am sure there is still more to discover and I look forward to doing so.

Very highly recommended

Excellently located bungalow in a pretty village

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Cheddar after somewhat lengthy journey to be greeted by Carol (the owner) she was both friendly and extremely informative about the bungalow and surrounding area. The bungalow is very well maintained and is spotless. We were a family of 3 generations so the roomy layout made it an excellent choice. Cheddar is a lovely village with plenty of nice eateries and is well located for investigating Wells, Glastonbury, Street, etc. Would definitely recommend this accommodation to friends and family. Thanks Carol for a lovely holiday.

Excellent bungalow, location and owners

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow is a lovely, well presented and equipped, clean holiday home. The owners are friendly and very helpful. We were a party of 3 generations and there was plenty of space for all. It has a well tendered garden. There are plenty of amenities within walking distance incl supermarkets, cafes, pubs and restaurants. It was a real bonus to be able to leave the car and walk up to the Gorge. We highly recommend this property.
