Parks review: Dulhorn Farm Holiday Park


Farm walks, a fishing lake, table tennis, adventure play areas – and lots of space, all with the view of Brent Knoll, one of the highest points in Somerset; Dulhorn Farm Holiday Park is a very special place.

It’s conveniently five minutes from the M5 – it’s also just a few minutes’ drive from the sands of Weston-super-Mare.

This quality park is on a working farm – beef and sheep – and the farm trails take you along field edges from where you can take a look at the beef herd, complete with the handsome resident bull.

Dulhorn Farm is best known as a holiday park for touring caravans, motorhomes and tents – and we’ve stayed here many times. There’s another facet to this enchanting place – you can buy holiday homes here. It’s an idyllic location for your weekends and holidays, in splendid Somerset; a base for never-ending explorations of the coast and countryside.

You can get a flavour of what’s all around your holiday home from the vista that awaits walkers at the top of Brent Knoll, 137 metres high and not an arduous venture. From here, there are splendid views of the Polden Hills to the south, Glastonbury Tor to the east, the Mendip Hills and Cheddar Gorge to the northeast, the Bristol Channel and Wales to the west and the Quantock Hills to the southwest.

This is a family-owned park where the focus is very much on families. Tractor-trailer rides take place during school holidays.

There is a large sports field with football nets and a basketball net, two adventure play areas and plenty of space for children to run around and play safely. 

In addition to the seaside attractions at Weston and Burnham-on-Sea, the park is within a short distance of several nature reserves and National Trust sites including Uphill Nature Reserve and the National Trust sites of Brean Down, Sand Point and Middle Hope.

For birdwatchers there’s the Somerset Wetlands areas of Westhay and Avalon Marshes. From the park it’s also a short drive to the historic city of Wells (the smallest city in England) plus Cheddar Gorge, the famous Cheddar caves and also the Wookey Hole Caves, which is a brilliant family attraction.

The park is open for 11 months of the year (closed between 9 January and 9 February).
