The Mendip Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), are one of England’s most attractive landscapes. The distinctive limestone ridge rises from the flat Somerset Levels and Chew Valley just south of Bristol. The windswept plateau is punctuated by spectacular dry valleys and gorges, and impressive rocky outcrops.
On the hilltops there are hundreds of ancient monuments, while on the steeper slopes flower rich grasslands and wooded combes offer a variety of habitats for wildlife. The hill tops also provide spectacular views across to Wales, the Quantocks and Glastonbury Tor. Hidden beneath the hills are the famous Mendip caves - Cheddar and Wookey cave attractions, but the many less accessible caves make this a popular area for caving.
The area also offers sailing and fishing on the reservoirs, cycling, horse riding, walking and host of other activities. Plenty of outdoor activity businesses are here for you to try out something new.
Our Greentraveller On-line Guide to the Mendip Hills AONB will allow you to discover the best of the region whilst minimising your impact on the landscape. From eco-minded B&Bs to farm shops offering fresh, local produce, to activity centres, we have uncovered the greenest businesses in the AONB.
