A fabulous park setting with sea views in a picturesque Park setting, sandwiched between the impressive coastline and the gorgeous Exmoor National Park. With a heated outdoor plunge pool with waterslide, you can also take a dip in the heated indoor pool - the site has plenty of activities to enjoy in the great outdoors and fresh sea air. Close by the sea above a rockpool bay with pockets of shingle and sand, Doniford is a surprisingly green and open park, with sea views to the front, magnificent Exmoor National Park just behind and pretty wild flower meadows surrounding the Park. Feel free to fill each day in just your own way. Every family is different of course, but a typical day might begin with a lazy lie-in or a family 'wake 'n' shake' session; it could be a morning in the outdoor pool complex with four-lane waterslide, or trying your hand at the crazy golf. Lunch out at a great little pub or pop into our sports bar with café bar & grill menu. In the afternoon, try the tennis & multi-sports courts, explore Somerset or relax with a game of mini ten-pin bowling. In the early evening, enjoy a stroll on the beach, a sunset bike ride or a barbecue. Then head off to the ShowBar for a drink, live music and dancing. So, whether it's out and about or staying on the park, you're sure to have a great holiday at Doniford Bay.
