The local area of Axbridge
Axbridge is a charming market town on the edge of the Mendips, near to Cheddar.
Axbridge can trace its history back to the time of King Alfred – when it was one of the 30 places fortified to defend Wessex against the Vikings.
The Medieval square, where the hotel is situated, leads into the centre of this picturesque town.
Opposite the hotel is King John’s Hunting Lodge, an early Tudor timber-frame wool merchant’s house, circa 1500, the museum provides an insight into local history. Open March through until October.
Next to the hotel is the 13th century St John’s Church, dating back to 1245. The Churchyard contains a Commonwealth War Grave of a Dorsetshire Regiment soldier of World War II.
