Location

An amazing location

Located at the foot of the Mendip Hills, and only 100 yards from the beautiful “Strawberry Line”, The Woodborough Inn is the perfect place to stay for those looking to experience the great outdoors.

There is plenty of walking & cycling on offer plus the more extreme pursuits such as climbing, abseiling, caving, mountain biking and even a dry ski slope.

For the anglers there are some superb fishing opportunities at Blagdon & Chew Valley lakes and horse riding is available in the near village of Shipham.

On-site we have a safe area to store bicycles..

Five circular walks from The Woodborough Inn

Ranging from a 2 1/2 miles fairly easy walk (allow 1-2 hours) to a 12 3/4 mile strenuous walk to Cheddar Gorge (allow 6-7 hours).

The Strawberry Line heritage trail

The Strawberry Line is mainly traffic-free, with no steep gradients and only 9 miles long, making it ideal for a family day out. Along the way you’ll appreciate the beauty and variety of Somerset as you pass cider apple orchards, wildlife-rich wetlands, steep wooded valleys and the spectacular Cheddar Gorge.

The entire path has a limestone dust that is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. It is used primarily for walking and cycling, though horse riding is permitted along a one mile section between Dolemoor Lane and Carditch Drove, which is between Congresbury and Sandford.

History

The Strawberry Line takes its name from the delicious cargo this former railway line carried from the strawberry fields of Cheddar. The line was well used for nearly a century until its closure in 1965 and since then a wealth of wildlife habitats have been allowed to flourish. Volunteers from the Cheddar Valley Railway Walk Society began converting the line into a walking and cycling route in 1983.
