Here are some of the caves that we visit regularly, but we also have lots more to choose from so there is always something new when you come again!


Caving on the MendipsGoatchurch Cavern is a wonderful cave in Burrington Coombe, on the Mendips near Cheddar. This is a dry cave and offers a selection of walking passages as well as plenty of smaller wriggling passages for the adventurous! A great cave for beginners.



Caving 11Pridhamsleigh Cavern is a gloriously muddy cave situated near Ashburton, on the edge of Dartmoor. Descend through a series of wonderful passages and caverns to the edge of an underground lake.



Caving in Priddy

Swildon’s Hole is in Priddy on the Mendips, near Cheddar. This cave offers both wet and dry passages and some fine formations to admire. Follow the stream as it carves its way underground through the cave and admire the natural beauty of the rock sculpted by water over millions of years.



Swildons adventure caving on the MendipsSump 1 trip in Swildon’s Hole. This is a longer trip taking in excess of 4 hours underground and is thus best suited for those who have been on at least one previous caving trip. The trip down to sump 1 in Swildons is a classic trip that takes you deeper into the cave following the streamway down waterfalls and pools. This section of the cave is well decorated with flowstone and wonderful formations. A sporting trip for the physically fit and agile.
