Helpful Hints & Tips
To make planning your holiday as easy as possible, activity bookings will open 12 weeks from the start of your holiday, in line with restaurant bookings.
You’ll be able to make your bookings via the My Haven Experience app or at haven.com/experience and will be able to book both free and paid for activities.
Activity bookings can also be made once you arrive on park, however due to limited capacity, we’d always recommend booking in advance to ensure you get everything you’re after!
Please note, whilst we have a lot of free activities for you to get stuck into, some of our activities do require a small additional charge to book.
Arrival day activities
If you want to book activities for your arrival day, this can be done seven days before your arrival date. Once within the seven days, you'll be able to book activities from 1pm. Please note, you’ll also be able to book activities for your first day via theActivity Booking Point on park once you’ve checked in (subject to availability).
Activities are only available to our Holiday guests, Private Let guests who have purchased a Play Pass and our owners. Please bring your Play Pass or Privilege Card with you.
Please see haven.com/experience 7 days before arrival for your allocated check-in time.
Arriving late: please let us know on the My Haven Experience app or haven.com/experience when you get your allocated arrival time. We will then know to expect you later.
Get your sizzle on in safety. Please keep barbecues away from holiday homes, verandas and the external gas bottles. They must also be elevated and please use a non-disposable barbecue. Be sure that they’re completely put out before you leave them.
Bars and restaurants
We have two venues for wining or dining: the Mash and Barrel restaurant, and our Live Lounge entertainment venue home to our Entertainment Cast, the Seaside Squad, and live acts. Both venues are inside the main complex. We have a coded lift to the Live Lounge (which is upstairs), so please ask one of our team for the code if you need this. You can pre-book a restaurant table on the My Haven app or via haven.com/experience 12 weeks before your holiday or by visiting the restaurant once on park. There will be no table bookings in entertainment venues and tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The nearest beach is across the road, at the back of the park. It’s a sandy beach that stretches past Burnham-on-Sea town centre and the pier. The RNLI lifeguard Burnham-on-Sea main beach, the part of the beach near the town.
All aboard! There’s a bus stop just outside the park at the Old Pier Tavern. You can catch a bus to Burnham-on-Sea, Bridgwater, Taunton, or Weston-super-Mare.
Our grassy areas are important to us. Please avoid parking on them and use the dedicated space next to, or near your holiday accommodation. Please also be considerate of your neighbours too. We have Blue Badge spaces in the main complex for those who need them.
Our amusement arcade is mainly cashless. You'll need to purchase a Playcard from the Playcard Kiosk or Prize Shop, top up the card and tap it on the card readers to play. Don’t forget to register your card in case you lose it! If you do lose your card, speak to a member of our friendly team in the kiosk or prize shop and they will cancel your card and will replace it with a new one with any remaining credit and awards. We have 2p and 10p coin pushers for coins and, on request, we can convert 20p, 50p and £1 coins to money on a card if you want to use other games within the arcade. Any credit and awards not used can be saved for your next visit to Burnham-on-Sea – no refunds will be given
We have two free-to-use cash machines in the main complex and at the Mini Market. You can get cashback at the Mini Market and any till point in our main complex (minimum spend applies).
All good things come to an end – please check out by 10am. Please leave your key with the team on the main gate or outside our main Reception. Remember to leave any hire goods in your accommodation. Once returned, the deposit will be paid back onto the same card used to make the payment. Please leave your keys with the team on the main gate or outside of Reception.
We can’t give you eyes in the back of your head, but we can give you a brightly coloured wristband for little ones, in case they wander off. Come and see us at Reception and we’ll add your contact details to it.
We’re a dog-free park, but if you have come on holiday with your four-legged friend, please pop into Reception and we’ll do our best to move your holiday to another park.
We’re strict about speed on park. Please stick to 10mph when you’re driving around.
Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points
Unfortunately, we do not provide this service yet. Tesco is the closest place with electric vehicle charging facilities.
If you have an emergency, please call 999 and then our Reception team on 01278 783 391 or our Security team on 07899 960379. This way we can direct them straight to you and come to your aid while you wait. If it’s not an emergency but you’d still like help, please call our Reception and Security teams as we have trained first-aiders on the park. Out-of-hours, please call our Security team.
Find out what’s on during your holiday four weeks before you arrive, go to the My Haven app or visit haven.com/experience. There will be no table bookings in entertainment venues and tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Extend your stay
If you’d like to stay a little longer, come and see us in Reception and we can check availability and prices for you.
It’s always good to hear how we could have made your holiday even better. But if you have anything you’d like to tell us, pop into Reception for a chat.
While you’re busy making memories, you might want a little memento of your trip. We have holiday gifts, treats and essentials on sale at the Mini Market and Funshop.
For a small charge, we have to hire: bed guards, highchairs, pushchairs, travel cots and irons, subject to availability and a £10 deposit for each hire good item. We recommend you book in advance of arrival through your My Haven account, to avoid disappointment, but if you haven’t please pop to Reception and we’ll check availability for you. Please leave your hire goods in your accommodation on departure and your deposit will be refunded to the same card used to make the payment.

If you’ve had a big adventure, you might need a washing machine to clean you up again. Pop into our Mini Market where you can buy tokens for the launderette, as well as washing powder.
If you’ve mislaid a pair of swimming trunks, or Ted the Bear has gone missing, pop into Reception and we’ll see if someone has handed them in for you. We keep all lost property for 14 days, so you have plenty of time to check.
We want your holiday to be tip-top. If you find any niggles when you arrive, please tell us straight away. Let us know if you don’t want a team member to come in if you’re not there.
Our Mini Market is open every day, so you can pick up any essentials.
We want you to feel safe and secure on park. So if there’s anything worrying you at night or you need our help out-of-hours, please call our Security team on 07899 960379.
Say cheese! If you get ‘papped’ by our professional photographer, you can buy the picture from the Funshop, in the Live Lounge.
Places of worship
Our Reception team can give you any information you need on local places of worship.
If you're on a Haven holiday break, Play Passes give you access to book activities, pools and entertainment venues, subject to availability. Play Passes are not included in Haven Hideaway breaks.
We know how important a postcard to Nan and Grandad is when you’re on holiday, so we have a post box just outside the Mini Market.
Stay lucky – don’t forget to exchange your arcade tickets before you leave. Just pop down to our prize shop in the FunWorks amusements arcade.
No luck finding the TV remote? You can operate it from the set itself. We may even have another one at Reception so it’s worth asking just in case
Our security barrier is coded between 10pm and 8am. Just ask at Reception if you think you’ll need the code during your holiday.
Special requirements and accessibility
If you have any questions or have special requests please contact our Call Centre prior to booking, where we have specially trained advisors who can help with every aspect of your booking. They can discuss the suitability of the park. If you have any questions while on the park, please ask the Reception team.
We know that swimming is one of our most popular activities, so we have done everything we can to ensure as many of our guests get a chance to swim as possible.
For indoor swimming, you can book slots before and during your stay. From four weeks before your break start date, you'll be able to pre-book up to 14 swim slots per holiday booking. You'll also be able to book more slots once you arrive on park, should capacity allow.
Each swim slot lasts for 60 minutes and can be booked on the My Haven Experience app or at haven.com/experience. We're able to hold swim slots for up to 15 minutes, however if you fail to show after this time, the swim slot will be cancelled and given to another guest.
If you can’t have a takeaway on holiday, when can you? We have Cook’s Fish & Chips and Papa John’s® on our park and new for 2022 Burger King®*, just waiting for you to enjoy. Papa John’s® will also deliver directly to your accommodation if required. Whether you’re ordering for collection, delivery or to eat in, all takeaway orders can be made via My Haven app or haven.com/experience.
Terrain of the park
The park is completely flat.
Surf’s up dude! Stay safe and tide alert with up-to-date tidal times from Reception. Or search for the ‘My Tide Times’ app to get live, local updates.
If you’re looking to explore the area, find a cracking local restaurant, or discover a nearby hidden gem, our Reception team can offer tips, advice, and recommendations. We have loads of tourist leaflets in Reception too.
Own up, who forgot to pack the towels? It’s okay, we provide towels (1 hand and 1 bath towel per person) in our Silver, Gold and Signature grade accommodation or you can hire some from Reception for a small charge and deposit.
You will need to arrange any upgrade prior to receiving your arrival time. Please contact the park and they will be happy to discuss upgrade options with you.
To maximise the opportunity for guests to access the swimming pools, activities, entertainment venue and restaurants included in their holiday package, all holidaymakers visiting our parks must be included on a valid holiday booking. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity on our parks to allow our guests to bring visitors to our parks.
Due to the remoteness of our holiday parks the WiFi signal can vary. We do have free guest WiFi available in our main complex. Unfortunately, we do not have WiFi in our accommodation. Our apps work on Wifi and 4G, and if you do not have any signal, you can always book your activities with our Activity and Leisure team at the Activity Booking Point.
