Watching the tide come and go, taking in the fantastic sun sets, watching the fishermen or just generally the world go by.
Throughout the day you can hear the steam trains chuffing and whistling merrily along. The train can take you on a scenic route to Minehead, where you will find a wonderful sandy beach, various shops, bars, restaurants etc and sea side amusements. Or you might just decide to stop off at the small harbour town of Watchet with its quaint shops, museum, the esplanade, numerous pubs, small cafes and bars.

For those of you who like walking, you are able to walk along the coastal path to Dunster and Minehead. If you were to drive to Minehead and beyond you will find the gateway to Exmoor, you will go through the small fishing village of Pollock pass through the famous Lorne Doone valley arriving at Lynmouth and Lynton where you will be able to visit their museum and read the devasting history that surrounds the town. A cream tea is a must where ever you decide to take a wander.
Back at Blue Anchor just a short walk to the left of the site you will find the Driftwood seafront cafe and to the right the Smugglers Inn offering freshly cooked meals through the day. There is also Cafe H on site which has a small shop selling essential items and serves a selection of scrumptious snacks and cakes, along with freshly brewed coffee and tea.

Hoburne Blue Anchor offers a relaxing family, friends or couples and of course not forgetting you beloved pet dogs holiday. Blue Anchor beach is dog friendly all year round. We only live 20 minutes down the road but when available we stay at the caravan, it allows us to recharge our batteries and feel a millions miles away.
From Easter to late September there is a car boot sale every Wednesday and Saturday (weather permitting) on the Home Farm field next to the Smugglers Inn. So if its a bargain your looking for then look no further.

Well what a relaxing holiday waking up.to that view everyday. The caravan was spotless and very well equipt with everything you would need. Julie was absolutely brilliant from booking right through to us getting home feel like have known her for ages. The boys enjoyed the swimming pool onsite their only complaint is that they did not let the mushroom off very often. The dog soon made herself at home so we had a happy pooch. For me this is a place that is just 100% relax time loved it and would definitely recommend this caravan to anyone. The welcome pack was lovely we could have a cuppa as soon as we unloaded the car. Lots of different games to entertain you the boys can actually play chess now they loved it. Back to reality now though unfortunately but will definitely be staying again can't wait thank you again Julie and Micheal and the hot chocolate was amazing xx
Thank you Tracey and family, we feel as though we have known you for ages also. We look forward to seeing you again

We have just had a fantastic 5 days in Julie & Michael's beautiful caravan, it was spotlessly clean, so good to have the bed made up too, there is everything that you will need, lovely view over the sea towards Wales, geat decking area to sit and watch the people passing and the fishermen, so many beautiful places to visit, the steam train is geat and well worth getting on at the Blue anchor station and doing the round trip. We will without a doubt be going again. Great communication with Julie. Many thanks.x
Thank you Christina and Paul. We look forward to hearing from you take care

We have just returned from a short stay at this lovely caravan. It is in a stunning location, right on the sea front, overlooking the Bristol Channel. The kids loved watching the fishermen as the sun set (spectacular sunsets by the way) and were entertained when the sea was particularly lively one night, producing huge waves, soaking anyone who came near! The caravan is the most well equipped and homely that we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in a few! The shower was powerful and hot, 2 toilets were a bonus (with 3 males in the caravan!) and the beds were comfy. Also a bonus that the bedding and towels were provided! The local pub was very dog friendly and served lovely food and was just a few minutes walk from the caravan. There was lots to explore in the local area. We just wish we could have stayed a bit longer! Julie's communication was fantastic and made the whole booking process easy. The tea, biscuits and juice for the kids was a lovely touch too. We would love to come back for longer next time. Thanks again Julie x
Thank you Suzanne, so glad you had a fab time, and look forward to hearing from you again in the future take care

We had a lovely week with great weather. The caravan was the cleanest and most homely than any other we have stayed in and we have stayed in a few! We enjoyed coming back to the caravan after a day out, sitting on the balcony with those fabulous views and supping a cold cider. We will definitely be back!!
Thank you Graham and Judy we looking forward to hearing from you in the future

Fantastic short stay had at the caravan by all the family. Warm welcome including buckets and spades which were quickly put to use, much appreciated. Caravan was very clean and well equipped, had everything we needed, notably a good shower. Great views being the foreword most of the caravans and great location generally, within a short drive of Minehead and Exmoor National Park. The caravan park staff were very friendly with good well kept facilities. Good size pool and adventure playground which the kids particularly enjoyed. All in all very pleased and would certainly recommend
Thank you Charles and familly. So pleased you enjoyed the break

We stayed for a weekend, the caravan is immaculate with a brilliant location right on beach front with lovely sea views. Julie was most helpful and we will definitely be visiting again. The campsite is very clean with nice cafe and a lovely local pub and restaurant just down the road.
Thank you Steph very much appreciated

We stayed at this static caravan for 10 nights in March 2019. We were very happy with our stay. The location of the caravan is excellent. Right at the front of the site overlooking the Bristol Channel with direct views across to South Wales. There is a minor public road which runs between the site and the promenade but during our stay it was not at all busy and is not intrusive. The unit has a nice deck at the front with table and chairs, overlooking the sea. The caravan itself is very well equipped in every respect and in excellent condition. It has full central heating. There are two flat screen tv's, a large sized one with DVD player in the lounge and a smaller one in the master bedroom. From the unit it is possible to receive the sites free wifi. It was reliable and fast enough to stream You Tube videos. The owners are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble The site itself is well run, with onsite cafe and launderette. Just outside the site to the left is an unrelated seafront cafe 'Driftwood' and about a ten minute walk to the right is the Smugglers Inn which serves food including a Sunday carvery. The West Somerset Heritage Railway runs along the back of the site with a railway station about a 10 minute walk away. There are a couple of villages a short drive away with Coop convenience stores. There are numerous eating and take-away options etc. Minehead is about a 10 minute drive with a full range of shopping and eating possibilities. We had a very comfortable stay and would certainly stay there again.
Thank you Kieran we look forward to hearing from you again
