"Set on the north
west Somerset coast, between Minehead and Watchet, Blue Anchor
Bay is a quiet coastal location with a long sandy beach offering
peaceful relaxation. It is also an ideal location for sea
anglers and walkers. The bay is surrounded by alabaster rocks
and cliffs, which are of great geological interest. Visit the
West Somerset Steam Railway which runs through Blue Anchor,
marvel at nearby Dunster Castle – sample the local parks, farms
and falconry of nearby Minehead".
