“Very peaceful”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Just got back from a weeks stay
Caravan was excellent, clean and had every thing you
Needed in a kitchen, heating worked great only used once when we arrived as was bad weather and abit chilly
Location is great 15min drive to minehead and close to other attractions or close to m5 to go out further if needed
Only problem was our mobile phones couldn't always pick up a signal as 4g not good down there and wifi only available in reception would like to be able to use wifi at night
Great views and will be returning next year

We rented a dog friendly caravan during May half term and had a great time. The caravan was lovely and clean. The kitchen had what you needed utensil wise, and the hot water for washing up and showers was constant, the cooker and hob worked well, our bed was comfy and we slept well and the caravan was newer than I was expecting.
The park itself was really nice, the pool was great and loved by my children( although the showers by the pool were often out of order as the water was cold) The playground and football pitch are also good, as is the well stocked shop, and it's in a good position for the beach,
which is dog friendly and has some sandy areas which made it good for ball games, and there's a little bit of rock-pooling as well.
The park is in a good location for visiting nice places like Dunster, Watchet (which we walked to) Porlock and Lynton.
It's really nice that there isn't a clubhouse (not my cup of tea) so if you want one don't stay here.
If you want family time, enjoy walks, and like me love a bbq and a beer you'll enjoy!
Finally, many thanks to the cleaners for their honesty (we managed to leave our daughters tablet behind) received safely through the post, thankyou.

Having not been to West Somerset before I was very pleased with our accommodation which was changed to a disability friendly caravan when we needed it. Comfortable living space and good open plan rooms.

The beach was littered with dead fish that the anglers had caught and thrown back just as the tide was going out each evening ... they were rude and would not move to let us and our wheelchair past.

The pool, when being used by outside customers, gets too crowded and twice we had to wait for the pool to become once again a safe number. I understand that this must create a vital income for the facilities but if those same facilities are not prioritised for the use of the paying guests on site then it does make you feel like a second-class citizen. I really thought a bar or something similar was missing from the site especially when the main building and reception shut up shop at 6:30pm.

On-site store was great - but best to head into Minehead for essentials as a bottle of Blossom Hill Rose was £8.99 - no Blossom Hill is worth that!

The adventure playground is excellent and our families had a wonderful time.

Hello and thanks for your review. We're pleased that the majority of your holiday was great, and I have passed your comments about the park facilities to the park manager for review. It's a shame the local anglers spoilt things for you but we hope this didn't detract from your holiday experience too much.

The plus side of this caravan site is the position , quiet yet totally easy to get around everywhere in good close distance .The views on the promenade are stunning on a clear evening and I loved the sunset . I have holidays every year and have tried haven butlins you name it but here is where my 7 year old loved more . I was amazed as there in no entertainment . Very flat if you have mobility problems like myself . For the more infirm this is the place , café very close to the left as you come out , restaurant to the right . sitting areas along promenade and in the summer a mobile catering van stops along the strip . I have had one holiday here last year and am due to go again , so much so is that I love the position of this place BUT why have i only given 3 stars ...well as it is quiet place staff should really be better at customer service , staff on reception is hit and miss , one lady was very helpful on another day there was one where everything was an effort and barely smiled ...come on now I was on holiday and had paid the full wack I didn't pay a lot of money peak season to be bought down from the holiday buzz .Her attitude remained all holiday . I rang the site to enquire about something for my future booking a month ago and it seemed a very hard job for the lady to sound as if she welcomed anyone there , curt and clipped and no look forward to seeing you again ( I can assure you I was very pleasant so it didn't warrant it ) My main complaint ( and if its not sorted out this year ...June admin :) I wont return for a 3rd year ) is the pool temperature . Due to the lack of facilities the pool is a big bonus . people not staying on the park also use it .This has been mentioned by others on the reviews about the coolness of the pool ,so I know its not just be me .I also got chatting to two elderly people who own there own van and cant use the pool as it is to cool and it affects there muscles . If your fit as an athlete it probably wont affect you lol . Because I have disabilities I need a warm temperature , so I asked the pool attendance what temperature it was that day ..I was told 32 , No way was it ...I should know I use a hydro pool at physio . The one thing i know is pool temperature and by law it should be checked daily and correct information given .I let it go but the next day I asked again ...again I was told 32 ...double no way it was colder than the day before. This really ruined my holiday as the pool was too cool to use , and was one of the reasons I had booked again as the depth of the pool is great for children and for people with mobility problems , a real plus .I had bought a weekly pass for the whole family each so it was a waste of money . I didn't complain at the time as I didn't want to cause a fuss and ruin my daughters holiday . The pool was very clean though and a nice touch with tables and chairs. So come on blue anchor sort the heating of the pool out this year so I can keep coming back . I will further my review after my holiday in June 2014 and hopefully be able to give a 5star rating.

Stayed on the campsite with friends and family - two motorhomes and a camper van. All ages from 6 to 67 years old. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Beautiful location just across the road from the sea front. Not the type of weather for sitting on the beach, but lovely for walks, rock hunting etc. Walked into Minehead, but took a taxi back to the site. Buses pass the gates but not on Sundays or Bank Holidays.

The staff at Blue Anchor were very helpful and friendly, especially in the little shop which seemed well stocked, nice to have Sunday newspapers. Wi Fi available around the reception area only. Laid back atmosphere, but staff seemed vigilant and any problems were quickly solved.
