As well as an award-winning site, it's a perfect base to explore what Somerset has to offer.
Below is a button for Visit Somerset but further down are some of the things we've found along the way and we've added some pictures and website information where we can to help you plan your time with ideas that work for all weather outcomes.
The following are some of the places we'd recommend in Brean
Great place for a day at the beach, a gentle stroll or it's a 3.5mile walk along the beach to Burnham-on-Sea.
Follow the beach instructions though as there is a mud-risk when the tide is out.
An epic climb up the steps (there is no shame for stopping for a rest or two - I promise!) is rewarded with fantastic coastal views of Brean on one side and Weston-Super-Mare on the other. A National Trust place.
Check out the sunset times and head over to the rear of the Sundowner Pub (just next to the Brean Beach entrance) - grab a drink from there or bring your own and head down to the top of the dune or down to the sand for this!
The key attraction apart from the animals has to be the all-weather play barn which attracts many local families and holiday makers, giving children the opportunity to play whatever the weather.
Located right next to Holiday Resort Unity - great place for the kids (big and small) to burn off some energy. Check the Tavern reception for discount vouchers on day tickets. Parents and Grandparents can thrillseek or enjoy a drink in the sun outside the Tavern, which is right next to one of the entrances
..........Or a long leisurely walk if you're feeling more ambitious. The places and attractions below are all within a 30 minute drive from the resort
You can get here in about 10-15 minutes in the car.
High Street is compact and easy to get up and down. Plenty of places to grab a bargain or a bite to eat and a drink
Don't miss the opportunity for a Mini Fish and Chips from Superchips on the High Street and eat them on the seafront steps. Small enough to enjoy but won't ruin your dinner :)
You can drive in around 30 minutes or you can take the Weston Coaster Bus (stop is across the road from the entrance to HRU - ask in reception if needed)
Renowned British Seaside location.
Plenty to do - explore the Pier; play Crazy Golf; challenge yourself on high ropes; grab a donkey ride;
Loads of places to eat and drink and would always recommend a day here in good weather

Somewhere far beyond the music festival that it is most famous for. Visit the Tor (above), the Abbey or the town itself for some great sights and only a short drive from Brean
Visit the City of Wells in Somerset with its historic centre, the magnificent cathedral, and the unique moated Bishop's Palace.
About a 45 minute drive from Brean but very easy route to follow. Designer outlets, restaurants and access to the high street too. More information via the following link - https://clarksvillage.co.uk/
A hidden gem that we only discovered very recently. Located about halfway between Minehead & Bridgewater. The shoreline is mostly rocky with plenty of rockpools to explore towards low tide. One of the best features of Kilve beach is the large grassy area behind the beach which is ideal for picnics.
Discover Europe's largest collection of Royal Navy aircraft at Fleet Air Arm Museum - an award winning naval aviation museum located in Yeovilton, Illchester. There is also an old Concorde there that you can tour.
The East Somerset Railway is a 21⁄2-mile (4 km) heritage railway in Somerset, running between Cranmore and Mendip Vale. Prior to the Beeching Axe, the railway was once part of the former Cheddar Valley line that ran from Witham to Yatton, meeting the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway at Wells.
