Staying in hostels in Cheddar or the surrounding area is one of the cheapest accommodation options. Hostels in Cheddar are usually of a high standard, clean, with ample room and usually with modern facilities, such as free Wi-Fi, hot water showers, and comfortable beds. In most cases the hostel will be located in a older building.

If visiting Cheddar in the winter months (November through February), it is recommended booking a hostel with central heating and double-glazed windows, as it can get very cold during these months, and older houses without these facilities can get particularly cold. Cheddar is a popular tourist destination, and accommodation is likely to book up during the peak season (including Easter week and the summer holidays in June through August). If planning on visiting during the peak season, book in advance to ensure you get a bed or room, and to avoid paying a higher, last-minute premium.

While Cheddar is a fairly big village, it can be explored by foot; however, there are also some public buses that operate within the village and surrounding areas. Cheddar is also a relatively safe village, however care should still be taken when exploring the village after dark.
