We purchased this van in 2016, already 10 years old, but in excellent condition, with loads of character and a really good "feel" to it, delighted with the brass plug surrounds and brass effect taps, and what can we say about the curtains and swags!
There is a double bedded room with built-in television and an en-suite toilet, a twin bedded room and a bed settee in the lounge.
It has a bath and shower in the main toilet, which is not so common, double glazing and central heating, and an easy to work kitchen area, plus a built-in 'fridge and separate built-in freezer; the oven has a good ventilator hood, and there is an extractor fan in the bathroom.
In February 2018 we have had all new carpets fitted throughout, and new bathroom and toilet flooring.

We have used this van ourselves and it has everything you need; we provide duvets and pillows but you must provide your own sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases and towels.

You will be pleased to know that the mattresses and pillows all have protective covers. .

The lounge has free standing furniture including a bed settee, a proper "fireplace" with a TV and a blue ray player, various games and books etc, the books tend to be mainly railway because the owner is actually a driver on the nearby West Somerset Railway. There is also a ceiling fan that does work, but don't jump up and down, or fling your arms about whilst it is on!!
Double doors open onto the decking where you can sit and watch the world go by, at whatever speed!

The Tide is always in and out and different every day, you can watch the fishermen who are very friendly and happy to talk about what they've caught or not caught! And finally if it is a sunny evening, sit with a drink and watch the sun go down over Mineheads' North Hill, you will feel like a millionaire, believe me it is priceless.

OTHER STUFF: We operate a clean as you go policy which means that we ask you to leave the van as clean as you wish to find it, we do supply all the cleaning materials that you'll need. This policy helps keep our costs down, it also saves us the problem of finding reliable cleaners and those savings are passed on to you our guests. ALSO Accidents do happen and nobody breaks stuff on purpose, we are all human, so if you do break anything or have any sort of spillage accident, DO TELL US, not because we want to tell you off, but because we can then make replacements or repairs to put it right for the next guest, who might be you!

If you are there we care.

Please read our guest reviews

N.B. Before retiring we had a top quality B & B in Porlock and previously a lifetime in the service industry, it is very important to us that you enjoy the facility which your hard earned money is paying for, and also important that our good reputation is maintained. We look forward to hearing from you,

Happy Holidays!

Elaine & John Stenner

We had a lovely few days in this caravan very inviting and homely. The caravan was very spacious living area with patio doors. Large bathroom with bath tub ( however we didn't use it ) it was a welcome site. Nice big bedroom with lots of storage , its the first time my husband has had his own wardrobe on a caravan holiday. Lovely kitchen with all you could want regarding utensils. Great communication from the owners they were away when we were due to arrive but sent us a number to call if any problems occurred. A lovely home from home caravan would absolutely recommend and hope to go back next year.

A really comfortable, well furnished and fully equipped caravan which was home from home for our family. A place where we could relax knowing the site was compact with a swimming pool and the sea both on the doorstep. The park, shop and newly opened cafe on site meant we didn’t have to leave the site. The children loved the sea view and relaxing on the veranda! With minehead town centre only a 5-10 minute drive away and the steam train passing through blue anchor regularly throughout the day there were many things to do throughout our stay. The owners were extremely accommodating and we were made to feel that it was important to them that we were happy with our accommodation. We will definitely be booking again soon! Thankyou to the owners for their commitment to providing a very good service.

True home from home. The weather was very much against us but it meant we had to switch off and just 'be' and being able to do so in such a lovely space was great. John and Elaine were very attentive - we had an issue on arrival which was quickly sorted out. The best part of this rental was that my elderly Cairn Terrier could join us. It is rare to find lovely accommodation that will accept dogs. Absolutely recommend.

This is one of the best caravans we have stayed in - like a home from home. Everything you could need is there and the kitchen, so well equipped, meant it was a pleasure to prepare a meal - even though on holiday! The furnishings are fantastic and so comfy, which open up to the most beautiful views across the bay from the front decking. We usually get a 3 bed van for the extra storage space, having a dog and our grandson but there is so much storage in this van that you can really organise yourselves initially so you still have ample room. We met John and Elaine, the owners who are lovely people and really keen that everything is perfect for you. This is also a lovely site, very peaceful and friendly and is in a perfect situation for exploring this area. Our grandson loved the pool on the site and usually either started or finished the day there! We are now considering a break with no kids or dogs some time next year so we can take in a few more of the quaint pubs and sample some more of the food! Thanks John and Elaine for a great holiday.

All the above should be 10 plus. We only booked last minute for a weekend. Lovely van, lovely site and terrific owners. I've just booked to return in September. Can't recommend this van and site highly enough. We watched the fishermen and the weather allowed us to sit on the veranda. Just what we needed

We have just returned from a fantastic week. The caravan was very spacious and really well equipped. Everything was in good working order. The location of the caravan is great with clear views of Minehead and South Wales from off the balcony at the front of the caravan. Even though this is a pet friendly caravan it was very clean and we were not aware of any doggy smells. We met John briefly and he is a lovely chap and very knowledgable about the surrounding area. After a couple of days Elaine contacted us to make sure everything was ok so great customer relations! We will be returning again next year.

We have just spent a fabulous weeks holiday relaxing in peaceful surroundings in this beautiful caravan. As soon as you walk in you feel very comfortable with the furnishings. The situation is perfect right on the sea front with beautiful views. You can just sit and watch the world go by, watch the fishermen just across the road or stroll up to the station and watch the steam trains. There is everything you need in the caravan, the bed is very comfortable and the caravan has the added bonus of having a bath as well as a shower. The owners Elaine and John are a lovely couple and made themselves known to us to check if everything was OK and are happy to offer any information on the area. All in all a really great week, needless to say we have already booked again for next year. Thank you Elaine and John.

Wow! what a great review.... This is our first year of caravan letting, having owned a very successful and highly regarded B & B which we sold last year. Our aim is always to give our guests all that they need and more than they expect, so a review such as yours is music to our ears, and gives us a huge buzz of satisfaction. We are delighted that you wish to book again, and hope that others will be persuaded to do likewise. Very Best wishes John & Elaine

We absolutely loved our stay here. The caravan is on a wonderful, quiet site with close access to the beach, pool, shop, park and restaurants. The steam train that runs through the village was fantastic. The caravan has the most wonderful spot overlooking the beach, we enjoyed watching the stunning sunset over Exmoor every evening. The caravan itself was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. The beds and bedding were comfortable and the owners had left milk and tea for our arrival. Having a bath and shower was a great bonus for us as a family. The kitchen facilities were modern and easy to use and the caravan was clean and spacious. We also met the owner and she was lovely and helpful. We will most definetly be back. Best holiday for many years!

Stayed for 4 nights, the caravan was clean, the furnishings were nice and the van was well equipped. Its on the seafront of Blue Anchor Park. It was nice to sit on the veranda and watch the locals fishing. Nice to walk round this lovely quiet park with our dogs and to watch the steam train pass the back of the park. We met the owners who are a nice couple, checking if there was anything we wanted to know. We will return if we are visiting this area again and would recommend to family and friends.

Owner Feedback

Thank you for your review Audrey we do appreciate feedback from our guest. We are very lucky here at Blue Anchor with 2 tides a day and the fishermen as you say come rain or shine. It was lovely to meet you both and hopefully we will see you again soon. Elaine

Just come home from a fabulous week relaxing in this lovely van, lots to see and do if that's what you want....steam train goes through several times a day, Minehead just a few miles one way and the lovely village of Watchet a few miles the other, however, the highlight for us was being able to spend a week in high spec van overlooking the beach with our pooches! They loved a daily run on the beach which is dog friendly all year! The weather was fab so our days were spent relaxing on the spacious decking watching the locals fishing! For someone like myself doing a stressful job this was heaven!! The lovely Elaine and hubby stopped by just to check we had everything we wanted, the tea bags, sugar, milk and coffee was a welcome find on arrival! All in all a lovely break in a lovely mobile home, hope to go back soon!!
