£15 for full day cycle hire, worth it. Great cycle track and everyone on it friendly. Great views and particularly enjoyed Axbridge. Must do whilst in Cheddar xx

Lovely place to go for a bike ride. I am not very fit but could manage the lanes quite well. Very enjoyable. We stopped half way for a cup of tea and to pick some blackberries!

Those TA reviews which referred to the diversion can now be discounted as the work has now finished. Hurrah! Lovely food and drink at the Thatchers Cider place (Railway Inn) at Sandford.

Whilst staying in Wells we decided to walk some of the Strawberry Line having read reviews on Tripadvisor. We caught a bus to Winscombe, 'picked up' the Strawberry Line there, walked to Axbridge (diversions are easy to follow), where we stopped for refreshments. We carried...More

Yes, the old station of Sandford and Banwell is just of the A368 at Sandford, it is only open on weekends and Bank Holidays. It is well worth a visit, and also a walk along the old railway line. The Railway Inn at... More
