About YHA Cheddar

Nestled in the Mendips with Cheddar Gorge just a few minutes' walk away, this large Victorian house and accompanying annex is the perfect short break destination for families, individuals and groups.

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.

After a long day exploring why not relax back at the Youth Hostel and eat a delicious meal from our carefully selected menu in our licensed restaurant. Have a look at a sample menu of what you can expect when you eat with us here.
