The thieves have gained accessed to houses by going round the back of properties and smashing conservatory windows or windows in doors.
Jewellery and valuables have been stolen, and even gardening equipment left in a car.
Allotments on Upper New Road have also suffered a burglary, with Cheddar Parish Council asking all owners of allotments to get in touch with the parish clerk immediately.

PC Wills has emphasised that people need to look out for their neighbours and report anything suspicious.
If you hear alarms going off, go outside and check to see if anything untoward has caused the alarm.
