A warm, friendly welcome awaits you and your family at Ashton Holiday Cottages, Somerset. Set within four acres, New House Farm has two lovely holiday cottages converted from a former milking parlour. Set amidst the Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels, with views to the dramatic Cheddar Gorge, Ashton Cottages are a perfect base to explore Somerset and the beautiful surrounding area. We are situated one mile from Wedmore village and two miles from Cheddar Gorge and its famous caves.

Wedmore is a beautiful village steeped in history, dating back to King Alfred the Great.  It has many independent shops ranging from fashion and antiques to a range of local produce shops. There are also several tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and more. Cheddar with its dramatic Gorge and Caves is also famous for being the origin of the Cheddar Cheese, which has been produced here since the 12th Century.  You can stroll up the Gorge visiting the caves, shops, tea rooms and eateries and even watch the Cheddar Cheese being made. For those seeking a little more adventure, the Gorge also offers superb walking, rock climbing, and caving.

Other local attractions include Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury Tor and Abbey ruins, the City of Wells with the world famous Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace, Clarks Village in Street, and a number of local beaches all on our doorstep. Bath and Bristol are both within easy driving distance as well as Longleat Safari Park and much more.  Our beautiful area offers enough walking, cycling and wildlife to keep the whole family entertained.
