The caravan itself is sited at Haven Doniford Bay Park. This is a very family friendly park which is set next to a rockpool beach.
Watchet with it’s steam train, Minehead with Butlins, Dunster with its famous castle, Exmoor and the fantastic Quantock hills are all within easy reach.

This caravan has been ours from new and lovingly cared for as our second home.
It is in fantastic condition throughout and of a very high quality.

In the lounge, there are large comfortable sofas.
In the dining area there is a dining table with plenty of room to seat 6 for a meal.

There is a 40” Panasonic smart TV, Blu-ray / DVD player.
THere is a 4G dual band wireless router with a PAYG sim in so you can just top up and enjoy high speed internet throughout and Netflix on the TV.

A mains gas combi boiler provides full central heating throughout, plenty of hot water and a very powerful and relaxing shower.
There is also a gas fire in the lounge (although we have never needed to use it) and a tower fan will help keep you cool after a day in the sun.

The kitchen is very well equipped with a 4-burner gas cooker with grill and oven, microwave oven, full height fridge freezer, toaster, plenty of work top space, cupboards and cutlery drawer.
All plates, crockery, cutlery, pans and cooking utensils are provided as well as washing up liquid and cleaning products.

The master bedroom has a comfortable double bed with plenty of wardrobe space. It also has a dressing table with stool & mirror.
Both twin bedrooms have wardrobes with hangers provided

The family bathroom has a good-sized shower cubicle, wash hand basin, mirror and WC. We have the added benefit of a second WC with wash basin for those busy mornings.

Outside there is a patio area with picnic table and benches. We also have a fully enclosed wrap round deck with lockable gate. Perfect for bringing the outdoor indoors without the worry of little ones escaping.
There is a table with a parasol and 4 reclining chairs also on the deck.
We also benefit from having a lovely larger than average grassed garden area which makes it perfect for sunbathing.

The caravan is sited in a quiet garden area of the park with no passing cars. It is a couple of minutes walk from the leisure complex, restaurant, shop, outside play area and beach.

A non-refundable deposit of £100 is required at the time of booking, and the remainder is to be paid 8 weeks before the beginning of the holiday, or fees must be paid in full at the time of the booking if it is made less than 8 weeks before the holiday.

Fees can be paid in instalments if required, but the holiday must be paid for in full 8 weeks prior to the start of the holiday.

Booking in time 3pm. Check out time 10am.

The amenities on Doniford Bay Holiday Park, all of which are just a short walk away, consist of an indoor pool, an outdoor pool with a four lane slide, "Funworks" building with amusements and a games room, childrens indoor soft play area, outdoor all weather multi-court sports area, tennis courts, children's adventure playground, archery, fencing, climbing wall, zip wire, etc., children's clubs, the Showbar Club with daytime and evening entertainment, and more.
To use these facilities, entertainment passes must be purchased from the reception. They are not included in the hire cost of the caravan, and this is reflected in the booking prices.

Also on Doniford Bay Holiday Park is a hire shop, picnic areas, a sun lounger area, the Cafe Bar, traditional fish and chip shop, and the on-site convenience store which also houses an off-licence and a gift shop.

Local to the park is the quaint harbour town of Watchet, with its narrow streets, shops, museum and the esplanade around the marina. Fishing trips can be taken from there and fishing is also allowed from the west harbour wall. There is a fishing tackle shop at the top of the main street up from the harbour, so don't forget to pack your rod and reel.

A little further along the coast is Blue Anchor Beach, and then on to Minehead with its shops and sandy beach. Butlins is at Minehead, and a discounted day pass can be purchased from reception at Doniford Bay if you fancy a visit!

Also, there is Dunster with its famous castle, and the West Somerset Railway with its steam engine trains - the station is only a short walk from the park and tickets can be purchased at reception. There is a bus stop right at the Doniford Bay Holiday Park entrance if you fancy leaving the car behind and having a day out! Not forgetting that the National Park of Exmoor is close by to be explored and admired, as are the Quantock Hills in all their splendour.

Weston-Super-Mare, Burnham-on-Sea, Brean, Cheddar Caves and Gorge, Porlock and Taunton are all within easy reach, with Weston and Cheddar probably the furthest, but still only an hour or so drive away.

A great holiday to be had by all

Please note there is a full inventory taken at the end of each stay and any items removed from the van will be charged to the lead name of the holiday.

Pilows and duvets are provided. Bring your own towels, pillow cases and duvet covers.

Such a wonderful holiday, making lovely memories with the family! The caravan is in a great place in the park with lots of space around for the children to play. The van itself was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay. There are loads of DVDs available for the children and adults to watch and games for the kids to play outside the caravan. Dave was so helpful with the whole booking and promptly answers any questions or queries. Would highly recommend this caravan and Haven site and would love to return in 2019.

Many thanks for your kind review Nicola. It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay and you're always welcome back. Dave and Adele

Have just returned from a midweek stay with my 4 year old daughter. Had the best holiday! I cannot recommend this caravan enough. Fab location, spotlessly clean, fantastic hot shower, WiFi in the caravan. Dave has been there to promptly answer any queries and really friendly too, nothing was too much trouble for him. I will definitely be looking to book something for next year. This caravan is much more comfortable & cleaner than all of the Haven vans I have stayed in before! Thanks again, Dave!

Many thanks Claire I’m so glad you had a great time and you’re always welcome back ???? Dave & Adele x

I’ve just added a review but for some reason accommodation was rated as only 9 out of 10. This was an error, caravan was amazing & definitely 10/10. Had to come back & amend as it was annoying me!!!

Awwww thanks Claire That’s really kind, that’s much appreciated. Dave

What a lovely experience staying at Dave's was. He was at the end of the phone to guide us to the caravan position when I got lost(not unusual for me!) Children's ages ranged from 3-13 and all of them had a great time. People in neighbouring caravans very considerate. Everything on site within a very short walk from the caravan, but very quiet and restful. Thank you so much, we will be back!

Thank you so much for that lovely feedback Carol. It was great accomdating you and look forward to welcoming you back. Many thanks Dave
