Somerset is one of several South West England gems. Despite having to share the limelight with likes of Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, Somerset is an incredibly wise choice for any potential second home. 

The lifestyle on offer here is a reality few places can match. We’ll explain why we rate Somerset so highly in this, the five reasons to buy a static caravan in Somerset.

1. Two terrific holiday parks to choose from

1. Two terrific holiday parks to choose from

It goes without saying that for holidaymakers, Somerset is a solid choice for any length of quality time away with the family. This quite literally extends to a place that you can holiday at as when and you please. There are two fantastic Haven holiday parks in which this dream can made a reality. 

Burnham-on-Sea Holiday Park is one of our most convenient spots, close to both the breath of fresh air you come to expect from a Haven location, and an array of amenities in the town it’s named after. Doniford Bay is equally enticing, sitting on the coast just outside the town of Watchet, a picturesque Somerset spot that’s the type you see on a postcard.

2. Amenities to make every day easy

Somerset is the ideal place to set up a second home, and living here is made all the easier with the fantastic services you can access just a short distance away from your spot at one of our parks. 

Here’s what to expect:

3. Where a leisurely lifestyle becomes routine

There are so many ways to adopt a routine whilst you’re away at your second home in Somerset. The owner communities at both our Sussex holiday parks benefit from exclusive events and features throughout the year, fostering a sense of community that’s priceless. 

Places like Watchet Town Football Club and Watchet Bowling Club aren’t just sporting venues, they’re places where residents come together to make memories. Similarly, in Burnham-on-Sea, the town’s Ritz Social Club hosts themed nights throughout the year. 

4. Beauty as far as the eye can see

Whether you’re five minutes from your place at a Haven holiday park in Somerset, or a few miles further afield, the scenery in front of you is likely to be picturesque. Spectacular inland areas like Cheddar Gorge tie in with the rolling hills that overlook the stunning surroundings of Glastonbury to create unique and beautiful backdrops. 

It goes without saying that the Somerset coastline ties in with this too. It’s a place where wild Atlantic crash into the land to make the walks here fantastic throughout the year, whatever the weather. 

5. Events to enjoy throughout the year

Weston: a town steeped in holiday history

Somerset hosts one of the world’s most famous music festivals, Glastonbury, so it’s safe to say it’s no stranger to welcoming visitors for memories that last a lifetime. Closer to your second home, you’ll see why the likes of Weston-super-Mare are world-famous seaside. 

The combination of classic seaside fun and family-friendly events are a constant winner throughout the year.
