A few things to note:

As always, we want your holiday to be everything you’d expect and it follows that your Simply Somerset break will be no exception. However, we all realise that so many things may still not be quite the same as pre-Covid and our foremost consideration will continue to be to ensure that all our visitors and team members STAY SAFE as we gradually return to some semblance of normality.

So, we’d like to make it really clear, so there’s no misunderstandings, what you can expect here at Lakeside this season.

Our holidays are called Simply Somerset because:

We simply provide the accommodation and setting -much of the rest is up to you!

But, firstly, some very important things that won’t change:

✔ A small family run holiday park.
✔ A choice of holiday homes in a delightful setting.
✔ All in a great location, just a short level walk from the town centre or beach in Somerset’s favourite
traditional destination of Burnham-on-Sea..

✔ It’s the ultimate base to tour and explore all that Somerset has to offer and Lakeside’s perfectly placed to venture that little bit further away while you’re here to so many different magical places in Devon, Dorset or even the Cotswolds.

Frequently Asked Questions.

1. What actually is a Simply Somerset break?

We’re simply providing the accommodation and a lovely setting – the rest is up to you and your family who’ll have all the time in the world to explore the beauty of Somerset and the West Country from the safety and comfort of your self-contained, self-catered holiday home from home.
We offer a much more low-key holiday experience, just perfect for those seeking a more peaceful and restful time.

2. Why can’t we expect all the usual things going on?

Our tranquil coarse fishing lake will be available to visitors as normal and we anticipate being able to provide a “pub with grub” experience in the Boathouse and Sail Loft but without the levels of “club style” live or interactive entertainment as in the past. There will be no children’s entertainment. The play area will however be open as will the Games Zone.

For so long as it continues to be necessary, the requirements demanded by Covid Secure – Keeping you Safe will be our paramount consideration to ensure that your stay remains worry free and enjoyable.

You’ll get the keys to your self-contained holiday home and from then on simply enjoy the re-discovered freedom and a gentler place that a 2022 break at Lakeside offers you!

3. What about some of the photos and wording on this website about all the things to do?

What’s on offer at Lakeside for the 2022 Simply Somerset Breaks is as outlined above under “A few things to Note” and is all about providing a safe and stress-free environment as free as possible from the lingering worries of Covid. Any photos or descriptions showing activities or locations involving large groups of people are historic and included only to show something or somewhere, certainly not how it will be at Lakeside in 2022.

4. Are the Simply Somerset tariffs competitive then?

Yes, absolutely! This year’s tariff really is highly competitive, reflecting a more laid back and slower paced Lakeside experience but still including all the wonderful choices of places to go and things to do or see in this delightful part of the West Country.

Re-discovered demand for this simpler holiday life which was a sell-out combination with our visitors in 2021!

5. So, what are you actually providing in the caravan then?

Everything you need for a self-catering stay will be in your holiday home as usual. Although interaction with our guests will continue to be contact-free as long as is appropriate, we’re still here to help over anything you may need during your stay! As usual, you’ll need to provide your own towels, tea towels, washing-up liquid, toilet rolls, and other items of a personal nature. Bed linen is available to hire – don’t forget to order yours!

6. How will I check in?

Details and all necessary information will still be provided to you for your 2022 stay before the day of arrival. Our reception will remain open but where possible we will be operating a contactless check in for as long into 2022 as is necessary. Please ensure you check your booking details before arrival.

Before you arrive, we ask that you advise us of your arrival time. This should be between 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. We understand there can be hold ups with holiday traffic etc, therefore please contact us before 6 p.m. with an ETA so that we are aware or need to make/amend arrival arrangements for you.

We also have a brand-new Lakeside Holiday Park app to download with all the information you should need, you can download this now from either Apple Store or Google Play.
