Both caves were excellent and the views from the top of Jacobs Ladder were beautiful. Feel there should be a reduction in price of the day ticket as the bus is not running. Still... read more

Our recent visit with two children 7 and 10 to this exhibit almost happened by accident after running late. But am I glad we ventured into the 'DREAM HUNTER'S at Cox's Cave. (New Easter 2016) *WOW JUST WOW*, This is a million miles away from the previous attraction at this cave, (something about finding a crystal) which was a bit... More

We didn't bother with the caves but the walk was lovely and very scenic. Quite steep and a bit slippy in places so wear good boots (I was wearing good walking boots and still fell over on the mud!). We went in the opposite direction to most people so we descended via Jacobs ladder rather than starting there. Possibly the... More

We stopped off here after driving through the Gorge. There are a few shops n cafes here for you to stop off in and have a look around. Of course there are the Caves and Cliff Walks but we didn't do these as it was November and very cold! As it was November there was plenty of car parking spaces... More

Really good value if you buy an all points pass. Took us 2 days to fit everything in. The great thing is there are things to do inside and out so when it rained we did the caves and the shops when the sun came out we walked across the top of the Gorge. Amazing, Amazing, Amazing.

The caves are great. Make sure to check weather as the main cave can be closed when there is heavy rain. On the trail the views of the gorge are beautiful.

We have been to different caves in the past, but these ones were out of this world, it was amazing walking round and seeing all the magical things in and round cheddar gorge and the caves. Would highly recommend this trip.

Really enjoyed ourself. The caves are really interesting to see and the views on the hills are breath talking! Unfortunately needed to take out a star as the bus tour was not available this time of the year.

Ok day out but not worth the price!!! Fortunatly we booked using tesco club card points which saved a good amount of money of the normal admission fee. The sales pitch stating that you may return for free within the next twelve months!!!Really why would you want to visit again in such a short period of time!? The only bit... More
