Warren Bay Holiday Village is in a truly superb position - about a mile from the bustling harbour town of Watchet, offers everything you could possibly want from a seaside holiday, plus excellent facilities and a superb position in the heart of a host of tourist attractions.
The park also has facilities for 150 touring caravans and tent campers and these pitches have fantastic views out to sea. The holiday homes are quite separate from the tourers and tents, with good roads giving access to all areas, and there is an impression of a beautiful green environment with well-tended grassy areas between caravans and beautiful trees, many of them providing shady areas as their branches meet across the roads. Peter and Virginia Pring have four children who have grown up on the park and who have known many of the long standing home owners and their families all their lives.
There is access down a wooded lane onto the park’s own private beach where children can have hours of entertainment exploring its many pools or hunting for fossils. This part of the coast is designated an 'area of special scientific interest’ because of its ancient rocks which record some 185 million years of the earth’s history. However, if the sea is too chilly for swimming, the park has its own heated swimming pool. Measuring 36ft long by 18ft wide, it is 5ft 6in at the deep end and 3ft 6in at the shallow end. There is a charge for use of the pool - just £1.00 per person. A pool for toddlers is also provided. Other amenities include a children’s play area, a laundry and a shop selling papers and groceries.
Holiday makers can walk, easily and safely, along the West Somerset Railway Line to the sandy Blue Anchor Bay and Watchet Harbour. On the way they will have close-up views of the steam engines on this very popular tourist railway line.
Well placed for access to a host of lovely beaches, Warren Bay Village is also within easy reach of large towns.
The popular seaside resort of Minehead is only about 20 minutes away by car and the city is Bristol is also within striking distance.
The principal landmark in Watchet is the town’s harbour and the surrounding quaysides and narrow streets.
In commercial use until 2000, the harbour has now been converted into a marina and the esplanade has been refurbished. Adjacent to the harbour is Watchet station, an intermediate stop on the West Somerset railway. Mostly steam-operated this heritage railway links Bishops Lydeard near Taunton with Minehead.
