If your idea of the perfect holiday is endless days in the fresh air, by the seaside or in peaceful countryside, then join our regular holidaymakers who return to Hoburne Blue Anchor year after year. They love the fantastic location, the comfort of our Platinum, Superior and Standard caravans, the friendly atmosphere and the excellent value for money.

Hoburne Blue Anchor has a heated indoor swimming pool for splashing fun throughout the season, and while there is no entertainment complex we do offer children's activities in the pool such as the aqua roller, hydro globes and paddle boats; it's the perfect place to make your own fun!

Touring caravans are welcome, and for simple, hassle-free camping, why not check out our camping pods in Somerset? These chic, individual timber buildings have a double futon, two camp beds, mini fridge and kettle. It's camping - but you don't need a tent!

Right on the beach. Accessible by steam train. Next to a National Park. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?

Waking up to the sea breeze and warm, West Country sun, you'll see why so many of our visitors return year after year. Hoburne Blue Anchor is the ideal holiday base, whether you're a couple looking for a quiet getaway, or a family seeking an adventure in the countryside.

Kids have plenty to keep them busy. Between the pool activities, the nature trail, and watching the steam train chug alongside the park, you probably won't be able to tear them away from all the fun.

We haven't forgotten about the adults either - why not sample a local cider or two at The Smuggler's Inn down the road? If you visit in winter, the village's cosy cafes and pubs give you an easy excuse to while away the afternoon in comfort after a bracing walk.

Of course, the park is so relaxing, you could spend your whole break here. There's miles of beach to explore on our doorstep. But if you can see it from your sun deck, why bother?
