About the trail

The Mendip Way traverses the Mendip Hills from the Roman port of Uphill to the historic market town of Frome. The Mendips form a ridge of flat-topped limestone hills stretching eastwards from the Bristol Channel. The landscape, which has changed little in centuries, is an enchanting mix of broad-backed hills, pastures enclosed by drystone walls, ancient woodland, mysterious caves and spectacular deep gorges.

The Mendip Way encounters Wookey Hole and the deep cut of Cheddar Gorge, as well as a selection of nature reserves, charming settlements and historic sites dating as far back as prehistoric times, making this a fascinating trail for walkers of all interests.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.
