Hoburne Blue Anchor Holiday Park is perfectly placed as a base from which to explore Exmoor.
There is a choice of accommodation in one of a range of two, three, or four-bedroom static caravans, or alternately there is hard standing for your touring caravan and car or motor caravan, with an awning area where available and electrical
hook-ups. A convenience store and a launderette are on the Park.
There is no club or entertainment on the site to spoil your peaceful enjoyment, but if you don’t feel like cooking or fancy a drink in the evening, Blue Anchor village has the Smuggler’s Pub as well as the Driftwood Cafe, which both serve home-cooked meals or snacks.
Blue Anchor Park also has an adventure playground, crazy golf, a football pitch and an indoor leisure pool, and just across the road from entrance is the three quarters of a mile long, sand and pebble beach, which is excellent for fossil-hunting, though you do need to watch out for some fast tides. The nearby cliffs are coloured and sparkle with veins of alabaster and when the tide is very low it’s said that you can see the remains of a long-submerged forest. At High tide the promenade is often lined with fishermen who are able buy frozen bait at the Driftwood Cafe.
For days out, the park is within easy reach of Minehead, by car, bus or train. The West Somerset Railway runs along one side of the park. You can buy a rover ticket for the railway and spend a day or two travelling along it’s route and getting on and off the vintage steam trains as often as you wish. A bus route also travels along the promenade to Minehead or, in the opposite direction, to the pretty harbour village of Watchett, so this holiday can include some car-free days if you wish.
You can actually walk along the beach from Blue Anchor to Dunster Beach. Dunster Village is about one mile inland from the beach, and when you’ve finished exploring the pictureque village and its Castle, watermill and ancient woolmarket, the train will bring you back to Blue Anchor. There is so much to explore on beautiful Exmoor, such as Cleeve Abbey at Washford, which is said to have the finest cloister buildings in England, The Fleet Air Museum, second largest naval aviation museum in the world, or just explore the scenery and villages of Exmoor National Park and maybe spot some ponies, red deer, or other wildlife. Why not treat the children to a day at spectacular Wookey Hole Caves, see the Witch of Wookey and visit the prehistoric valley of the Dinosaurs.
