Whether you are looking for a family break with all the trimmings of a traditional seaside holiday, or an adults-only escape to experience some of Somerset’s wonderful scenery, one of these Premier Parks will fit the bill. Each member of the Premier Parks group is visited and assessed each year by the editorial team behind MMM, Caravan, Camping, and outandaboutlive.co.uk to ensure that they meet the highest standards.
