Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) tourism businesses

On Monday 16th November Mendip Hills AONB with Visit Somerset are holding an event at Yeo Valley HQ, Blagdon for tourism businesses.

If you are a business that is directly linked with the Mendip Hills landscape this event aims to explore ideas for raising the profile of the area as a visitor destination and develop itineraries that the travel trade are seeking.

There can be few areas that rival the Mendip Hills for the range of outdoor activities it offers as well as high quality accommodation and food and drink that provide that intrinsically British experience.

Sarah Jackson Mendip Hills AONB Manager said ‘ the stunning landscape of the Mendip Hill AONB has attracted many businesses and directly contributes to the quality products they produce or offer- whether that be commercial outdoor activities such as climbing and caving, or well known brands such as Yeo Valley, Butcombe, Cheddar Ales and cheese, Thatchers, and Salt and Malt at Chew Valley Lake. Many have already discovered what the area offers but there are also untapped markets on our doorstep including Bath and Bristol visitors and residents’

Presenters include Yeo Valley, Mendip Outdoor, Greentraveller, Visit Somerset and Visit Bath. The 10.00am- 2.15pm event includes lunch in the striking Yeo Valley Canteen offering stunning views over the Chew Valley.
