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.

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.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TOW THROUGH WATCHET.

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.
