DRAYCOTT Cheddar 1 mile; Wells 5 miles; Weston-super-Mare 12 miles. Set in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, nestling beneath the scenic Mendip Hills, the village of Draycott is truly a holiday destination to savour. With its two pubs and local shop, this pretty village provides a great base for exploring lovely Somerset. There's plenty to see and do to suit all tastes and ages, including an energetic walk to the top of nearby Cheddar Gorge to view the amazing caves or a more relaxing trip to see the fabulous attractions at Wookey Hole. A visit to the lovely cathedral city of Wells is recommended, whilst slightly further afield but within easy driving distance is the delightful coast at Weston-super-Mare and the Tor and Abbey at Glastonbury. With so much to see and do you'll want to return year after year!
