Situated in Somerset in the eastern part of Mendip between Oakhill and Stoke St Michael (ST 6505 4720) it makes an ideal base for caving, as well as many other outdoor activities including walking, cycling, climbing etc. It is close to the Mendip Way footpath and there are a number of local crags and quarries for climbing which have become popular in recent times.
