Holiday Resort Unity Review:
The hardest thing about camping is the equipment. Lugging everything you need to survive when spending a few days with family in a confined space is hard work. We don’t even drive, so it’s an additional torture carting tent, sleeping bags and any additional items you might need on the challenging public transport options in the area.
This time, instead of navigating the minimal number of carriages First Great Western lays on towards the South West, versus the large number of people looking to travel in that direction, we ditched the tent and hired a Euro Tent at our campsite of choice.
We chose Holiday Resort Unity in Brean, because it’s a large campsite on the edge of seven miles of golden sand. It has a range of entertainment options available as well as excellent facilities. Additionally, it’s just 35 miles from Bristol meaning that when things go wrong, it’s never more than three heel clicks away.
The Euro Tent is a six person cavernous space with a double and four single camp bed options on the Brown Field site. It features electricity, a sink with cold running water and a large dining table with six chairs. For the three of us it was brilliant. There was plenty of living space, a metal storage rack and all just a short walk to the free showers and toilet block.
For two nights hire 25-27 July, we paid £99.90, which was an absolute bargain for stress-free camping.
What we like most about Holiday Resort Unity, is that there is everything there you need and yet plenty of space if you choose not to be social. The beach stretches from the imposing natural pier of Brean Down for several miles towards Burnham on Sea.
The beach features lifeguards and beach patrol due to the dangerous nature of the mud. The tide comes in quickly due to the naturally flat land, so it’s really important to read beach signs and listen to the lifeguards. If the tide is out, no attempt should be made to reach it. It’s too dangerous.
It is a safe beach if you use it within the safety advice given. It’s reasonably clean, though you should always pick your spot with care.
We absolutely recommend Brean Splash, which features a swimming pool, indoor splash space and outdoor splash pool with flumes. It’s best later in the afternoon, though there’s always going to be a queue in the peak summer months. Hot days are best if you want to take full advantage of the outdoor water options.
