Accommodation

Holiday Resort Unity

The four-star Holiday Resort Unity has been welcoming visitors for over 70 years. In early 2021 it opened its doors to Channel 5’s ‘Happy Campers – The Caravan Park!’, which showcased what goes into running the popular holiday resort to ensure it remains a firm family favourite. It’s located just 200m from the beach and provides an excellent base for your team. The amazing facilities include restaurants, arcades, indoor and outdoor play areas, an indoor water park, as well as Brean Theme Park boasting over 40 rides and attractions!

Sandy Glade Holiday Park

Sandy Glade Holiday Park is the perfect setting for families with plenty of space for the kids to let off steam, from a fantastic indoor pool with water jets and fountains to an outdoor adventure playground. Enjoy a take-out from ‘Chef’s Corner’ or a meal in the bar, and there’s a shop on-site too for any last-minute essentials. Just a short stroll from the park and you can dip your feet in the sea, relax on the long expanse of golden sand, or enjoy an ice-cream. As evening breaks, the clubhouse comes to life as the on-site team lead games and a great entertainment programme for the whole family to enjoy.
