The Oakhouse Hotel is in the market town of Axbridge, which has narrow, winding streets and a variety of medieval buildings, on the edge of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Church of St John the Baptist, a striking Grade I-listed building that dates from the 13th century, is less than five minutes' walk from the hotel. King John's Hunting Lodge, a National Trust property that is nearly 550 years old, is also less than a 5-minute walk away. Nowadays the property is a museum of local history. Axbridge also has an array of independent shops and places to eat and drink.
Cheddar Gorge, an impressive limestone gorge that is England's biggest natural canyon, is a must-see on any visit to the area. We recommend the 3-mile clifftop walk from Lookout Tower to Lion Rock. You can also explore the caves beneath the gorge, which are floodlit to help visitors see the rock formations and their subtle colouring.
The AA 5-star restaurant with rooms has parts that date from the 11th century; its large open fire and exposed brick walls are original features. The AA says that its "stylish mix of old and new" puts the property at the "boutique end of the design spectrum".
The "impressive" 2-AA-Rosette restaurant provides a "high quality experience" and "delivers delightful dishes full of flavour", according to The AA. It also holds an AA Breakfast Award.
