Wookey Hole Caves are only a short jaunt away near Wells. These are probably the most famous of the underground cave networks in England. The caves are open to the public year round, while many of them remain unexplored. The caves are reportedly over 1 million years old, known to have been occupied some 50,000 years ago. The temperature inside is a constant 11 degrees, ideal for an adventure no matter what the weather.
Cheddar Gorge is a famous site where the oldest complete skeleton of a human being has been found (9000 years old) in the United Kingdom. Older remains from the Upper Late Palaeolithic era (12,000 - 13,000 years ago) have been found. Another feature of the gorge is Jacob's Ladder, a set of 274 steps carved in the side of the gorge. The gorge is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The gorge is the site of the Cheddar Caves, the rocks of the gorge consist of a Carboniferous Limestone layer on top of an Old Red Sandstone layer. The river at the bottom of the gorge is the Cheddar Yeo, and it rises from the ground in the gorge, in Gough's Cave. The maximum depth of the gorge is 113 m (370 ft).


Attractions near Parasol Guest House

Weston-Super-Mare Golf Club - Weston-Super-Mare - 0.5 miles
Our Course, which was officially opened on the 24th September 1892, is unusual. It is by the seaside, but is not truly a seaside links in the sense that dunes do not form part of the challenge but are rather the seaward boundary of the course. There are few trees on the course, more likely large shrubs. The overall impression is of wide horizons and masses of sky. In summer the greens are fast and true, the fairways tight and the rough punishing. In winter the course is rarely closed and is always played off real tees, just occasionally, depending on the weather, it may be necessary to use temporary greens but this is no more than a few days each year.

Weston-Super-Mare Centre - 0.59 miles
With nearly 200 years of experience of welcoming holiday makers, its small wonder Weston remains as much of a magnet for visitors, as it always has. Weston boasts a beautiful promenade, stretching for 1 1/4 miles along the sandy beach. Break your walk by visiting Sea Life Centre, Grand Pier and Marine Lake (boating and paddling). There is a host of great places to visit within easy reach such as Cheddar Caves, Wookey Hole and the historic towns of Wells, Glastonbury and Bath. Weston is only 25 minutes drive from Bristol International Airport.

Worlebury Golf Club - Avon - 1.96 miles
There can be few more historic places to test your handicap than at the long-established Worlebury Golf Club, near Weston super Mare. It was founded in 1908 by Henry Butt, a local philanthropist, with a group of like minded prominent businessmen, initially for their own enjoyment. This traditional parkland course offers all the challenges of golf in a hilly terrain - with an excellent mix of holes providing a stiff challenge to both low and high handicappers, under the watchful eye of club professional Gary Marks, club captain Martin Ford and club secretary Mike Wake.

Brean Golf Club - Burnham-On-Sea - 4.18 miles
Welcome to Brean Golf Club. Golf enthusiasts will love Brean Golf Club! It's an 18 hole, 5715 yard, par 69 course, located at Brean Leisure Park, in approximately 100 acres of lush green meadowland. Water features come into play on many of the holes providing formidable hazards to the flat landscape. The greens are irrigated by a popup sprinkler and since the fairways are cut from meadowland, they remain lush even in drought and are well drained. Hence you'll find the course is seldom closed. Plus, with the course being on the coast, you'll find the fresh winds and breezes add to the challenge of the course!
