Cheddar village, Somerset, UK
Local Community and Tourist Information
Welcome to the original Cheddar Village web site - a one-stop stop for things to see and do in and around Cheddar village itself, the Gorge and Caves, getting about, and local events – with links to businesses, jobs, properties, and more besides. Do you live or work in Cheddar? Or perhaps you are looking to move here. If so please add this site to your bookmarks or favourites – make it your first port of call for local news, events and information.
Friday 6th December from 5.30pm.
Come and join us for a fantastic evening of Festive Excitement, Shopping, Children’s Entertainment, Markets, Choirs, Tombola and much more! Please see the Cheddar Traders Association web site for further information about this year’s event.
Cheddar’s U3A history group have been busy working on a new history tour guide for Cheddar village which takes you around some of the back lanes to find some hidden gems. Click here to see the first edition of this guide.

“MY CHEDDAR” COMMUNITY GROUP and VILLAGE SOS
Cheddar has its own page on the National Lottery funded Village SOS web site, which is a central meeting point for those interested in making their UK community a better place. And if you are concerned about any aspect of life in Cheddar, its services and facilities, why not join our My Cheddar community group (also on Facebook) which is driving local improvement projects, such as our litter-picking team, and helping with the Cheddar Neighbourhood Plan. You can also join other local residents on Streetlife.com to share news and discuss local issues.
ABOUT THIS SITE
Running since 2004 it’s our own personally-updated “hyperlocal” site, run from the village as a non-profit venture to provide useful information to visitors, residents, and those with an interest in the local area. It’s not part of one of these national or regional web site chains that tries to look local but is actually auto-updated by some large organisation based elsewhere – beware imitators! The Wordle below shows some of the popular topics covered here recently.
