Things To Do



The carriage will be available to hire
from May 2018.


More 'Things to Do' will be put on this page over the next few weeks to help plan your holiday at Blue Anchor.


The West Somerset Railway

The WSR station of Blue Anchor is a 2 minute walk from the camping coach. The railway's web site sums up the country's longest heritage railway...

"Our Railway, a true country branch line of the old Great Western Railway is full of fascination whether you are looking for a nostalgic ride back in time through lovely countryside or to study the railway and industrial heritage which our line preserves..


The historic steam locomotives, coaches and wagons, and the buildings of our ten unique stations linked by a twenty mile scenic journey will repay hours of exploration. The surrounding countryside is as varied as it is beautiful.

The gently rolling Quantock hills and distant Exmoor, unspoilt villages and farms nestling in leafy lanes, the cliffs and coast of the Bristol Channel with views of distant South-Wales, confident Church Towers, Dunster's imposing Castle and Minehead's seaside charm are all waiting to be discovered"

Visit their website for full details of the railway, timetable, what to see and where to see it - as well as everything to do with the line.

Why not book your week stay at the carriage to coincide with one of the WSR gala weekends or one of their many special events?

The WSR web site has full details.




There’s a small shop selling the basics in Blue Anchor. There’s also two pubs serving drinks and food and the wonderful Driftwood Cafe just 5 minutes away serving breakfast and delicious meals, coffees, teas and cakes throughout the day and open regularly for dinner in the summer holidays.

There are supermarkets in Minehead together with a family butcher and a huge range of other shops.
