Reviewer: Davtuc 3 reviews from this member

Surprised to see 2016 reviews, booked this after viewing them, simply very inaccurate or out of date.

My experience, very second class campsite charging first class fee, £35. 00 per night, two people no pets, car and van, ehu.

Toilet block very dated, but floor kept clean, showers worst we've ever used, low push buttons, some won't stay in, some stay in for three seconds, all of them flood the next cubicle and main area. Water power so strong you can hardly stand under.

Did report it to no effect.

Black mould around top of all cubicles.

Grass on most of site not maintained very well, outer edge park has a dozen seasonal pitches where grass is kept better.

Reception shop good, didn't use pool.

Crude pitch layout, uhu but no tap or drain. Plenty of waste bins.

I asked a few others for there opinion, all agreed, too expensive and a poorly run touring site,

All expected better of Hoburne, Blue Anchor, we won't be coming back.

We found this on the net and got a great last minute deal for £365. 00 with EHU for 14 nights

Pitches are spacious and some are only a stone throw away from the beach

The showers and toilet block were cleaned regularly and well maintained

There is a laundry and drying facilities

There is an on-site shop which will cater for all your basic needs

There is no club house on-site, which to be honest did not bother us

The swimming pool was free and safe for all ages

The play area including ball game pitch would suit most ages, lots of kids when we were there

There is a Tesco’s – Morrison’s – Lidl supermarkets about 5 mins’ drive from site in Minehead

A couple of nights in the week a mobile chippy wagon is on the sea front which served freshly cooked cod and chips, really nice would recommend to try

There are 2 pubs on the blue anchor sea road, did try them out but was not impressed with food and drink selection, they both did not cater for children meals in my option and one was a dump, we did find a pub call the butcher arms just before Minehead and it served good beer and family type meals

Wachet was good with its old sea harbour, we had great fun crabbing and spent a few hours there, only gripe was 2 cod and chips – 2 sausage and chips – 4 cans of pop and four sachets of sauce was £28 very rude if you ask me

Minehead is a long high street with some of the well named branded shops on it high street and you can get what you need.


Cant wait to go back there were lots that we did not do

We found this site by accident and I am glad we did,

The pitches are level and we'll spaced out with hook ups

The shower, toilet block is the cleanest I have come across and are well set out and the showers are free they could just do with being on a timer

The site is clean and we'll placed

There are 2 pubs serving food and local beers very near with 1 overlooking the bay and at sun set this was beautiful, it is a good walk into watcher village an old fishing harbour

We were not equipped to use the pool so can't come to on this

We would define try come back and it was cheap at £17. 50 in august a real bargain

There is a good shop by the entrance serving the the site and local community

The steam train is also located by the site

We booked this site after we had driven past it previously. We were attracted to the fact that it DOES NOT have a club on site ((Bonus).

The roads to the site are a bit tight, our camping SatNav took us through watchet, but we went through Carhampton on way home.

On arrival the Pitch that we had booked (49) two months earlier had been given to another tourer, We were then given pitch 52, but alas this also had a unit on it.

The staff then gave us pitch 79 (which turned out to be a better pitch than pitch 49).

The touring site is level and each pitch has a hard standing. The pitches are a good size. We found the toilets and showers to be clean and ample. There was plenty of hot water. The washing up area was clean again with plenty of hot water.

The drinking water points were next to waste water emptying, This is the only bad point on the site as far as I'm concerned(Apart from dogs being allowed on site).

The reception was open until about 20:00hrs each day. The staff were always helpful.

The indoor heated pool was very good, communal changing areas, life guards in attendance throughout.

The shop on site was well stocked with alcohol, food items sweets and a few toys. The prices were reasonable.

The Childrens play park was great, It is also in the centre of the site which we were happy with, it allowed us to see our Grandkids when they were away playing.

The roads on site are good, children are allowed to cycle around the site.

The site is a quiet site (apart from our immediate neighbours, the Adults were worse than their kids) Dogs were accepted, and unfortunately I had to clean up some dog mess that had been left by someone (If you are taking your dog then CHUFFING clean up after it).

We stayed for a week Loved the site and its location being close to the beach, Loved the evening strolls with my Grandkids who were enthralled by the sea fish that were being caught.

We had a small mishap with my sons Bicycle, but the site Staff sorted out the issue for us, they were so helpful.

We ate at the Smugglers pub which is virtually next door. The food was brilliant.

We ate at the Butchers Arms in Carhampton, the food is awful. I was sick later in the night, luckily the Kids and my wife couldn't eat the slop that was served up to them.

The site is a great base for touring, we visted Watchet and took the steam train to Minehead. We visited Wookey hole which was a great day out. We also visted Crealey at Exeter another great day out. Finally we went to Dunster Castle where the kids attended Knight School, another great day.

I have no problem in recommending this site, it is brilliant. We will be returning.

Excellent value for money - they had a promotion and we paid £75 for 3 nights - 3 adults and 4 children. Electric hook-up, grass pitch - Motorhome + car

First of all it's clean! Don't expect 5 stars for the the money as it isn't. It's quiet and nice.

Location - you can see the sea from the gate.

Facilities - toilets block with showers, dishes area, laundrette with iron board and iron, free wifi, playground, covered swimming pool (heated), minigolf -£1 per club, Nisa Local with a game room and books.

Water and grey water disposal

Close to the train station so it's easy to do day trips to Minehead or whatever you have in mind or English Heritage - Dunster Castle.

Huge carboot every Saturday next door where is also a pub with a free inflatable castle`to keep them occupied.

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.
