Location: Draycott is a small rural village listed in the Domesday Book, close to the village of Cheddar (2 miles) on the southern edge of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Draycott Sleight nature reserve has now been designated as a Site of Special Scientific interest. Draycott is well known as a major strawberry producer. The now disused railway line that ran through the village, the Strawberry Line, is now a popular cycle route linking this southern side of the Mendips from Wells to Yatton. There is even a pub located opposite the old railway station called The Strawberry Special. There is a distinctive pinkish tinge to the stone that makes up this area and it is known locally as Draycott Marbleā€, a dolomitic conglomerate that was quarried quite close by at Draycott quarry. There is a useful village store and post office in nearby Rodney Stoke as well as all the various fruit and vegetable market stalls found along this popular route offering you the opportunity to buy your produce from a local producer. The Rodney Stoke Inn can be found here too so you are spoilt for choice, not to mention the popular Cider Barn where you can sample some local cider or pick up a sour dough Pizza. Draycott and Rodney Stoke have an excellent First School which in turn feeds to Fairlands and Kings of Wessex Academy, part of the popular Wessex Learning Trust. There is an active thriving community space at Draycott Memorial Hall with a playing field and play area. There are fabulous walks right on the doorstep up through the Mendips behind the impressive Cheddar Gorge. Or if you are feeling more adventurous why not try the Mendip Gliding Club for spectacular views as you soar over the Somerset Levels from just above Draycott Steep.
