Looking for a caravan where you can take your Doggies? then bring them here, it's perfectly placed for the dog walk it's just beside you. We have a large corner end plot right next door to a dog walking lane, the lane goes right behind the caravan site goes through a field following the designated signposted coastal path. The views are stunning. The lane part is tarmac which is very handy on wet days, it then leads you onto a coastal path.
Or take your dogs onto the beach and meet lots of other doggies. We have fully enclosed Side & Front Decking that will keep them safe, but they can still be on lookout duties!
And we dont charge for your dogs.
Enjoy your breakfast outside on the decking with a horizon sea view on the rattan dining furniture.

Large Comfortable Caravan for hire on a HAVEN site at Doniford Bay Holiday Park. Fully Enclosed Decking Side & Front. Heating in every room.

There is a 28” TV in the main bedroom, with Netflix, Amazon Kids, iplayer, and catch up TV, so no arguing over having to watch the football! an en-suite toilet and sink, plus a hairdryer.

The site is smaller than some Haven sites, which means you can let your youngsters go off on their own, and you don't have to be superfit to walk the distance to the entertainment and swimming complex. It has 24hr security patrol. Heated Indoor and Outdoor Pool with slides, and sun loungers. Plenty of Activities, (some require additional costs) Aqua jets, Fun Inflatables, swimming lessons, Kart hire, Climbing Wall, Zip wire, Soft play area, All-Weather Multi-Sports Court, Archery, Amusement Arcade, Supermarket Shop where you can buy the usual groceries and freshly baked bread. Launderette, Cash-point, Restaurant, Takeaway Fish & Chip shop, Outside the complex there is Decking with Seating where you can enjoy a Costa coffee, ice cream or a beer or have a meal. Family Entertainment in the Entertainment Lounge with visiting acts seven day a week, which include Party Bands, Vocalists, Comedians, Magicians, and off course Bingo.

On-Site there is a Supermarket which bakes bread and cakes where you can enjoy a coffee from the Costa Express and sit on the outside seating. It has a good range of food, and essentials, as well as small gifts.

Fish & Chips etc on site. (with curry sauce if you wish)

There is a launderette on-site, (purchase tokens from the on-site supermarket).

The entertainment lounge is the place to go, the kids love it, or after 9 pm time to dance the night away. Entertainment seven days a week. (Please note you will need to purchase Play passes from reception to access swimming or to go into the entertainment lounge)

Dogs are allowed on Doniford beach, which is more for rock pooling or walking. The dogs love the stream of water that runs into the sea for a paddle.

Dunster Castle (National Trust) and Dunster medieval village (Not National Trust) is well worth a visit, independent shops, tea shops, and sweet shops.

Minehead is about 25 mins drive away with shops, cafes, pubs. Steam Train. You can get the steam train from Doniford Halt railway station, about 10 mins walk from the site, and it takes you to Minehead. Dogs are allowed on the trains. Most pubs and some tea shops allow dogs if they don't we don't frequent there. The Black Dog at Minehead is good for children, it has a large play garden area, plus dogs are allowed inside and out. It does a very good Sunday carvery, no need to book. Park in the car park beside the Co-op, it's just a three-minute walk. Or if you like Pizza, then Stones in Minehead has a real pizza oven. They don't sell food on Monday or Tuesday at lunchtime.
Dogs are not allowed on the main Minehead beach from May to end Sept. Though they are allowed on the beach at the opposite end by Butlins, behind the golf course, there is parking, it has dunes and is quite quiet.
There is a nice coastal walk in Minehead, drive to where you would turn left to go to the main shops, but don't turn left take the next right turn, drive right to the end, passing a pub called the Bridge Aground, which is dog friendly and good food, so right to the dead end and there is a lovely park/coastal walk. You will need to buy a Pay & Display ticket for parking.

Additional info:
Activity PlayPass is NOT included in the price, purchase upon arrival. The cost for Peak is £50 each for adults and £25 each for children aged 4-15. Off-peak prices are £36 for adults and £18 for children aged 4-15 This will allow you to use the heated swimming pools, kid's clubs and also evening entertainment. (There are some additional activities if you sign up for them for children that you have to pay for, for example, kayaking, swimming lessons, or archery, and lots more, they get booked up very quickly, so you'll need to book activities at reception as soon as possible upon arrival) The amusement arcade can be used without a pass during the day, but at night there is a chap on the door checking passes, as it leads to the entertainment venue. The restaurant can be used day and night without any passes, so unless you want to go to see entertainment in the evenings, you only need children's passes for the swimming pool, etc. Adults watch them without needing a pass

Had a wonderful stay at Elaine's caravan, the caravan had everything you needed and more, it was spotless. Elaine was extremely helpful and welcoming. We explored the local area and our dog enjoyed the many walks, and our lads enjoyed the facilities on site. We would highly recommend.

Thank you Chris for your lovely review. We are so glad you all had a great time, including Baxter your dog.

Just returned from our first visit to this caravan. We saw it advertised via this website and thought it looked lovely and we weren't disappointed. The caravan was situated on a great spot on the site, inside it was clean and spacious and the decking was a great touch to sit out and enjoy the views. Elaine was very helpful with anything we needed, we would definitely recommend and can't wait to return

Thank you very much for this lovely review. We are so happy you had an enjoyable time, and we hope to welcome you back again.

We absolutely loved our holiday. The caravan was perfect for our needs. Really spacious master bedroom with a very comfortable bed. Sitting on the terrace was a delightful experience with green hills behind us and a fabulous view of the sea to the front. Very comfortable outdoor seating and dining furniture. The owners keep their caravan in immaculate condition and are extremely kind, friendly and helpful. Communication was excellent. We were really sad to leave and will definitely be returning.

We saw this Caravan via this site and decided to book a family holiday away with our two boys. Elaine was nothing but helpful via text before, during and after the trip. I had the added bonus of knowing the area from my own childhood and teen year holidays with my own parents. The Fishers keep the accomidation in top condition and we could not fault it at all. The site had all we needed to keep us going whilst we were on site. We can highly suggest you consider your stay here and you won't regret it. We look forward to staying with you again.

Must apologise that I have only just logged on and seen this review, it's very kind of you thank you. We hope to see you back again.
