Having not been to West Somerset before I was very pleased with our accommodation which was changed to a disability friendly caravan when we needed it. Comfortable living space and good open plan rooms.
The beach was littered with dead fish that the anglers had caught and thrown back just as the tide was going out each evening ... they were rude and would not move to let us and our wheelchair past.
The pool, when being used by outside customers, gets too crowded and twice we had to wait for the pool to become once again a safe number. I understand that this must create a vital income for the facilities but if those same facilities are not prioritised for the use of the paying guests on site then it does make you feel like a second-class citizen. I really thought a bar or something similar was missing from the site especially when the main building and reception shut up shop at 6:30pm.
On-site store was great - but best to head into Minehead for essentials as a bottle of Blossom Hill Rose was £8.99 - no Blossom Hill is worth that!
The adventure playground is excellent and our families had a wonderful time.
