What a location! could not have been any closer to the beach - which is great for walking on, not so good for sitting on - it's a bit pebbly and muddy (we went to Minehead when we wanted a proper sandy beach). The sunsets over the bay were second to none. We had a very nice spacious pitch, and were rather spoilt by being the only van on our row for the whole week. The steam train running behind the site is lovely, and you are aware of the trains passing but this is not intrusive. We bought a day rover ticket for the train and enjoyed the fact we could walk to the station from the site, and have a car free day (the train isn't cheap, but we used Tesco clubcard vouchers). The pool on site was great, we went 3 or 4 times, and it was never too busy. Nice shop on site with all the essentials. Lovely walk along the beach to the Blue Anchor pub, basic pub grub type food, but nice enough and reasonably priced, great garden with views over the bay.

Superb site, clean and well maintained.

At reception dealt with beautifully by the young lady in attendance, very welcoming.

The toilet block was warm and clean at various times visited.

Pitches have a hard standing area for your vehicle you are expected to reverse your van onto the grass.

A word of warning, if you are offered pitch 1 beware if its wet weather, this pitch gets waterlogged very easily.

As others have said an ideal base for visiting this part of the south-west.

Not the easiest site to get to with a caravan would recommend going to Carhampton and turning down the lane to Blue Anchor, also the better road in my opinion to get out of the village.

This site is in an excellent position, with good bus links along the coast to Minehead and watchet and of course the steam railway which is well worth a trip. We were placed in the corner of the camping field nearest the statics and near the sea and road,

Although very quiet (no road noise) we were bunched up close to other units although the site was far from full. The facilities were clean and tidy but there are the push button showers that a lot of commercial sites adopt presumably to save water/money, I personally find them inefficient and waste more water than the normal shower. There is a well stocked shop and swimming pool. I can recommend the Blue Anchor Hotel a short walk along the sea front, food was good and reasonably priced.

Good value at £68 for 4 nights over Easter which included hook up and use of the indoor swimming pool. Please be aware that, although the website states the touring pitches are hardstanding for car and caravan, the touring pitches only actually have hardstanding for your car and your caravan and awning go on grass. We were disappointed to discover this after a long, tiring journey and complained to reception immediately. I pointed out that I had specifically asked for hardstanding at the time of booking and was told by the receptionist that hardstanding meant for the car! After a little negotiation, they kindly offered us use of a vacant seasonal pitch which was hardstanding and much more suitable following the poor weather.

The toilet block was modern and OK but we were disappointed to find people taking their dogs in with them leaving muddy foot prints where you shower. Showers were hot and very powerful but you have to hold the button to keep them on. Swimming pool nice with unisex cubicles on the pool side. However, the only place to change with a baby was the disabled toilet as there were no changing tables in the changing rooms.

All the staff we met were very helpful and professional. The shop on site was useful, if a little expensive. Anyone concerned about noise from the steam train can relax if they are on touring pitches - could hardly hear it. The children's play area was very good and we felt our son was safe.

Very quiet site (although the Easter sub-zero temperatures probably put most people off BBQ's etc in the evening!) Used our Tesco vouchers on the WSR steam train and had a lovely day out. Dunster Castle is great for kids as it encourages children to interact with some of the exhibits/complete a quiz etc.

Lovely tea shops can be accessed direct from the castle's overflow carpark. The beach directly opposite the site is a pebble beach. There is a really nice cafe and also a pub, both within about 5 mins walk of the site. There are no recycling bins, other than at the top of the site.

Overall, a very good site but maybe we have been spoiled by the extremely high standard of the Caravan Club sites we have used recently.

A basic site that does have a indoor pool and a cost cutter. It's right on the sea front. The pitches are hard standing which was needed as it was quite wet and the grass was under water. The toilet block was clean and heated.

There was a proper motorhome service area like they have abroad that sadly seems be the exception rather than the rule in the uk.

Near to the entrance are static caravans, but you can walk off the site at the end where the tourers are sited, there is a gate, which is handy for getting to the pubs.

We went to the smugglers. Nice pub with real ales and scrumpy on draught. Had a meal, no complaints there at all.

Booked in here for 4 nights and ended staying for six. Loved it. Great location, excellent toilet shower block, 50 yds from sea, great for swimming at high tide, but watch venturing out onto deep mud at low tide, or you will loose your shoes or worse.

2 pubs within walking distance, both serving local Otter ales, both serving food. Good for dog walking, go up past Smugglers pub onto public footpath through countryside. Yes they do now accept dogs on the touring site albeit it at a hefty £3 per night.

Leisure pool o. K for kids as very shallow, convenience store very handy.

Steam railway just down road good but pricey, £7 odd each return to minehead, better to get the day rover ticket I think.

At £14 per night with EHU when we stayed mid Sept that was cheaper than the C&CC CS site next door, which we incidentally tried to book first, but was advised was full. All in all good value, we will be back next year. Don't normally stop on big sites like this that cater for statics, but was impressed with this one, well done Hoburne, how about a sensible price for our mutts though, you only have one dog bin on the whole site.
