If you’re the kind of person that’s very much “at one with nature”, you’ll be amazed at just what you can see, do and taste within 50 miles of the Fernhill Hotel in Lyme Regis.
The first and most obvious place for the cheese lovers amongst you is Cheddar Caves and Gorge, where the world famous cheese is produced. Even if you’re not a big cheese fanatic you can revel in the sights and sounds of some of the largest inland cliffs in the UK (500 feet in places!) that form the famous Cheddar Gorge. A designated site of outstanding natural beauty since the early 1970′s, it provides an unforgettable day out.
A little cider.
Just a few miles from Cheddar, in Sandford, is Thatchers Cider Company. For over 100 years the company has produced award winning cider.
Three National Parks
Being located between three of the UK’s most glorious national parks is something we’re proud of, and each has its own particular attractions. To the north-west, there is Exmoor National Park, Dartmoor National Park is to the west, and to the east there is the New Forest National Park.
And if you fancy another drop of cider after visiting the National Parks, you’ll not be disappointed.
On the way back from Exmoor there are Hancocks in South Molton (Devon side of the park), The Somerset Cider Brandy Company Ltd & Burrow Hill Cider in Martock, with their champagne method cider, and cider brandy as distinctive specialities. The centuries old Sheppy’s is just outside of Taunton at Bradford-on-Tone, and the award winning Perry’s is located in Ilminster.
Not a cider drinker? Between Dartmoor National Park and and Lyme Regis is the Lyme Bay Winery, producing and selling ciders, country wines and speciality liqueurs to boot.
So you see, with the Fernhill Hotel as your base you are naturally spoilt for choice
