Family Fun in Somerset

Family holidays can be the source of lasting childhood memories and Somerset is a County that can supply all the raw ingredients.

Whether it is the first paddle in the sea, a donkey ride or candy floss on the pier or whether it is a chance to collect fresh hens' eggs for breakfast, we have so many special places where these magical moments can be enjoyed.

Some of the best family fun can be found for nothing in the freedom of parkland, farm stays and the open countryside.

Equally there is the lure of the bright colours, delighted squeals and excitement of the amusement parks.

In Somerset and Exmoor we have something to satisfy most childhood dreams be it riding on a steam train, petting a snake, dressing up as a pirate, exploring a cave, boarding a replica aircraft carrier, building a sandcastle or pony trekking across a moor.

Family fun is top of the agenda for our well established holiday parks at resorts such as Burnham, Brean, Minehead and Weston Super Mare but it is also to be found in the less obvious locations wherever there is a chance to try something new and interesting.

What makes Somerset so special is that it has a whole tradition of family fun going back centuries to the first community carnivals, country shows, works outings, fairs and firework displays.
