For a truly local holiday!

Close to the centre of Somerset, between the sea and the Somerset Levels, Burnham-on-Sea is the local resident’s resort of choice.

There’s no ‘super Mare’ here, it’s just plain, honest old Burnham-on- Sea.

But there’s a lot hidden away in the lanes and the sand dunes, as well as in the quiet Victorian back streets, including everything you’ll need for a happy family holiday.

It’s a friendly town where you set the pace to suit yourself.

Burnham-on-Sea owes its development to lighthouses, and to a clergyman.  We have two lighthouses – there used to be three – including the unique one on legs.

200 years ago the local curate bought the right to charge passing ships for using his lighthouse, and collected a toll. The money thus raised helped develop a neat new town of holiday accommodation which we still enjoy today. There was also a railway from Glastonbury, and a pier for steamers from Cardiff.

As with Weston-super-Mare, there’s a wonderful flat sandy beach for the kids, and an esplanade with all the amusements they’ll want when they get tired of sandcastles.

To the south of town you get yachting in the Parrett Estuary. To the north you get golf, as the famous and fearsome Burnham-on-Sea links course snakes its way through the dunes, with fine walking on the beach between. Everywhere you get expansive sea views and sea air.

The great thing about Burnham-on-Sea is how easy it is to get here – train to neighbouring Highbridge, or J22 on the M5 – and how easy it is to stay here.

One of the greatest concentrations of caravans and holiday chalets in the world spans the coastal strip known as ‘the three bees’ – Burnham, Berrow and Brean. These big holiday parks have everything you need, and are the perfect base camp from which to explore the rest of Somerset.
