Things to do

-Golf: Visitors staying in a Burnham-on-Sea holiday cabin can practically walk to the Burnham and Berrow Golf Club. Founded in 1890, the club features two 18-hole courses. The Channel Course is the more casual of the two and is well suited for beginners or experienced golfers looking to practice. The club’s Championship Course is more prestigious and very traditional. Visitors are welcome at both courses throughout the year. Green fees for the Channel Course are quite reasonable and a good choice for novice golfers.

-Beaches: The beach at Burnham-on-Sea is miles long and can be broken down into several major areas. The main beach is located around the town’s famous pier and features wide stretches of flat sand and shallow waves. Lifeguards are on duty here daily from 1 May to 30 September each year. Burnham South offers easy seafront parking, whilst Burnham North is a fun place for kids to explore and also features several pubs. The Beach Lighthouse Area is famous for its nine-legged lighthouse and also allows dogs year-round.

-Outdoor activities: On the beach adventure seekers can try their hand at windsurfing and kite surfing. Lessons and equipment hire are both widely available. Horse riding and donkey rides for small children are also available from the beach at Burnham-on-Sea. Some visitors simply enjoy the tranquillity of walking along the coastline. If not staying in holiday homes in Exmoor, the National Park is an easy drive and has lots to explore on foot or on a bicycle.

-Family attractions: Families staying in Burnham-on-Sea holiday homes near the beach can make the short walk to the town’s famous pier. There is plenty here to keep little ones entertained, including an amusement hall. Beyond the pier, families have a choice between the Apex Leisure and Wildlife Park, Animal Farm Adventure Park, and Fun City at Brean Leisure Park, all located within a few miles from the centre of town.

Facilities were first rate, with everything you could need in a home away from home. Lovely friendly pub and shop just across the road, plenty of space for everyone, comfy beds and heavenly showers. Three miles from Cheddar Gorge and not much further to Wells. Close enough to Bristol for visits to the city. What more can I say? Perfect!!

                                                                                                      Very spacious and comfortable house. The house is perfect for a quiet family get away, with peaceful surroundings and great views. Close enough to the A39 to be accessible but far enough to 'get away from it all'. Pro's: The biggest plus for us was the field at the back - this really made the holiday. The inside had plenty of room and has been furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen is very well equipped and Tesco deliver, which helped. The owners were very friendly and helpful and obviously care for their guests. Con's: none really! The Internet was a bit slow at times, but no more than you would expect in a rural location - we still watched Netflix without many pauses. There are some beams and doorways that might trouble 6ft plus people, but weren't particularly noticeable. All in all a great holiday home which we wouldn't hesitate to recommend or visit again
