Primrose Hill's Local Attractions...

Blue Anchor Bay with its sandy beach is a short walk from Primrose Hill. The bay has stunning panoramic views, at low tide a large expanse of firm sand is ideal for building sand castles, flying kites or just walking… and walking.
There is free car parking, two good pubs, a convenience store and newsagents, two cafés and an indoor swimming pool….and treat yourself to an Exmoor ice cream!
Steam Railway enthusiasts can board the
West Somerset Railway train at the pretty Blue Anchor station…..a time warp back to the helicon days of steam. The line is the longest preserved railway in the county skirting the Quantock Hills and passing through picturesque villages & tranquil countryside.

The Smugglers Inn serves excellent food either in the Cellar Bar or in good weather outside in the spacious garden.
The Driftwood Cafe is a 1930's style cafe open 9am -5pm serving snacks and meals, the all day breakfast is a firm favourite with guests.
Each August Minehead hosts the
RNLI Raft Race, professionals and fun craft all finish at Minehead Harbour.

The bustling seaside town of
Minehead with its shops and restaurants is just a short drive away, the harbour is pretty and the old part of the town around the Church is worth exploring on the way up to North Hill with its spectacular views of the coast. During the summer months Blenheim Gardens hold outdoor concerts.
A visit to the medieval village of
Dunster is a must. The Castle and gardens are owned by the National Trust who host interesting events throughout the year.
After a visit to the castle the village with its cobbled streets, fascinating shops, tea rooms a plenty is a lovely place to while away a few hours.
In August the hugely popular
Dunster show and Dunster Fair are held on the polo fields.

Dunster Beach is very popular... the pay and display parking is right next to the beach...but if you are feeling energetic it is a lovely walk along the West Somerset Coast Path from Blue Anchor. There is a cafe serving fish and chip and cream teas during the main season, pitch and putt to entertain the kids (and adults) and behind the quaint beach chalets a small wooded lake teeming with wildlife.

Wimberaball Lake offers plenty of water based activites for everyone, windsurfing, canoeing, sailing, and fishing. If you are a wheel chair user then the wheely boats are a great way to get out on the lake. www.swlakestrust.org.uk & www.wheelyboats.org

Exmoor National Park
is just a short drive away with its miles of footpaths, rivers, moor and heathland and views that make you feel good to be alive. Visit Doon Valley, dramatic and wild, walk along the river at Tarr Steps, call in at the Exmoor Pony Centre and a cream tea at Selworthy or Horner is a must… and did I mention Bossington, Webbers Post and Dulverton?.

Those who are less able can hire a Tramper All Terrain Mobilty Scooter at Heddon Valley and towrds Woody Bay www.countrysidemobility.org



Walking, Mountain Biking, Fishing and Horse Riding.

Some people just want to relax on holiday…some need to be on the go… and there is plenty here to fill each day.
Primrose Hill has many lovely walks from the doorstep and nestling between
Exmoor and the Quantock Hills the area is a walker’s paradise. We can suggest tried and tested walks and have maps and walking guides available to borrow.

The North Devon and Exmoor Walking festival takes palce in April/May each year

The South West Coast Path starts at Minehead on its 630 mile journey to Poole in Dorset and the whole of the Coleridge Way can be completed in sections


Bike hire is available in Minehead and at Dunster beach… The Exmoor National Parks information center at Dunster has route maps.


Blue Anchor Bay is very popular with fisherman at high tide, but if river fishing is your sport Exmoor has miles of rivers and with lake fishing at Clatworthy, Combe Sydenham Country Park or Wimbleball you are spoilt for choice.


Horse riding is very popular on Exmoor…Everyone from the novice to experienced rider cannot fail to enjoy riding on open moorland. A visit to the Exmoor Pony Centre is a delight… Taster riding sessions can be booked or you can just call in to learn all about this wonderful breed. www.moorlandmousietrust.org.uk


Into North Devon...
If you are exploring Exmoor you will cross the county line and find yourself in glorious North Devon.

The North Devon Coastline with its surfing beaches at Croyde Bay and Woolacombe and picturesque Lynton and Lynmouth are popular day trip from Primrose Hill.
