Holiday Parks in Somerset

Escape to the peace and quiet of Somerset. At Hoburne Blue Anchor, there’s so much variety. You’re surrounded by rolling hills with a beach on your doorstep!


If you can drag the family away from the park, you’ll find plenty to do in the local area. You can spend the day touring a cider farm, discovering the secrets of the Quantock Hills or spotting rare wildlife on Exmoor.

From festivals to farmers’ markets, events here are always brimming with Somerset hospitality. And they aren’t limited to land either! In Bristol the annual balloon festival fills the sky with a myriad of colours and patterns.  

Our events calendar tells you what’s happening when you’re here.
