The Swift Moselle is a luxury 8 berth holiday caravan equipped with all you need to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. This 38ft x 12ft holiday home is further enhanced by a large, 24ft x 8ft veranda which has a fitted 6/8 seat picnic table with parasol. The veranda has a lockable gate, so when you're not using it for alfresco dining or just chilling out, it's an ideal safe play area for toddlers
The accommodation consists of a stylishly furnished lounge/dining area, with 32"LED TV & Blu ray/DVD player, a well equipped kitchen with full size fridge/freezer, microwave oven, cooker with separate oven and grill, George Foreman griddle and a full complement of crockery, cutlery and utensils. A shower, 2 toilets, a double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms. The beds in these can be pushed together to make a double. From March 2015 our letting price will INCLUDE fresh bed linen.
The caravan has double glazing and central heating to ensure you're comfortable during those breaks when the weather is not so kind. The price even includes the mains gas and electricity
It is located in a pleasant setting which during the summer months receives the sun on the veranda all day long. Its own designated parking space is only a few metres from the door and the Butlins main facilities and the Skyline Pavilion are only 5 -10 minutes stroll away. Close by there is a Spar shop and laundrette. Fishing on the nearby lake is free and we provide a charcoal barbecue for your enjoyment on those warm summer afternoons and evenings.
Butlins are far more capable than we are of promoting their resort and there is a wealth of information on their web site. Caravan guests are automatically entitled to all the same facilities as Butlins own guests. People on family breaks no longer require passes
Minehead describes itself as the Gateway to Exmoor, as indeed it is. But there are many other interesting things to discover if you decide to go exploring. Every café and shop in the area will have numerous leaflets describing local attractions but a few things within easy travelling distance are worth seeing.
On your way into Minehead you will probably have noticed the imposing Dunster Castle high in the hills to your left, A very interesting place to visit. The medieval village of Dunster is also well worth a browse. You may notice, as you drive down to Butlins from the A39, a level crossing and if the gates are closed you may see a steam train of the West Somerset Railway. The station is just down the road from Butlins.
Five miles further along the A39 from Minehead will bring you into the village of Porlock; made famous in the novel Lorna Doone and at the bottom of the legendary Porlock Hill; one of the steepest in the country – be careful! If you don’t fancy the hill, there is a more leisurely drive up onto the moors along a toll road. It takes you through some spectacular countryside. Either way you will eventually end up on the A39 travelling over Exmoor.
Watch out for the sheep and Exmoor ponies as you drive the 12 miles into Lynmouth, possibly stopping on the way to take in the magnificent views across the Bristol Channel towards South Wales, or at the one of the two inns along the way for some refreshments.
Lynmouth and Lynton are fascinating places, situated as they are one at the bottom and one at the top of a 500 foot cliff and linked by a water powered, cliff railway over 100 years old and unique in the world. Originally built to carry cars in an age when their engines were not powerful enough to take them up the winding cliff road, it now carries passengers in quaint wooden cars which seem to be straight out of the Victorian age.
Check out the flood museum and see how a disastrous flood in 1952 washed a large number of the village’s buildings and residents out to sea. If you have time, take a walk up the beautiful Glen Lyn Gorge or up the East Lyn Gorge to Watersmeet. And no visit would be complete without a visit to the Valley of the Rocks, walk round the cliff path and look up for the wild goats.
