Cheddar Gorge and Caves


Milton’s Country Lodge is located 15-20 minutes from the incredible Cheddar Caves and Gorge. Explore the spectacular splendour of Britain’s most breathtaking stalactite cavern where Cheddar Man, Britain’s oldest skeleton, was found. Audio guides bring the cave to life for kids and adults, telling the fascinating story of its Ice Age creation, Stone Age occupation and Victorian exploration.

In Gough’s Cave a shimmering brilliantly coloured underground sanctuary with fantastic calcite sculptures, dancing fountains, mirror pools and music evocative of a more spiritual world. A striking contrast to Gough’s Cave. Kids love to follow the Crystal Quest and meet the Lord of Darkness and his evil dragon.
