About Blue Anchor

Your Business Here! - Sponsor our Blue Anchor pages, click here.
Blue Anchor in Somerset is a village dominated by the bay in which it is named after, and by the Hoburn Holiday Park, a quiet well kept park for holiday makers that sits just across the road from the bay, with views across it for some of the caravans parked there.

The village contains a pub called The Smugglers Inn and a small cafe which overlooks parts of the bay and Bristol Channel, indeed when the weather is reasonably clear you can see right across the channel and into Wales.

Blue Anchor also has a railway station which forms part of the West Somerset Railway, which offers wonderful Steam Train rides around the surrounding countryside and villages, including into the historic port of Minehead which is just a few minutes ride from Blue Anchor. The station also hosts the museum of the West Somerset Steam Railway.

Nearby attractions include the beautiful Quantock Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Cleeve Abbey, and the wonderful town of Minehead.
