Portishead Holidays |

Choose from a variety of accommodation to suit your stay

Situated right on the northern edge of Somerset, on the Severn estuary near Bristol, this small town has brilliant views of the Welsh coastline as well as up and down the estuary itself. With all the charm of being a waterside town, as well as having the transport links of Bristol and the surrounding area, Portishead is a popular holiday destination.

A highlight of a Portishead holiday is a trip to the lake, a pretty spot to sit with a picnic and watch the model boats in the water or feed the little ducklings that call the lake home. During the summer months why not hire a rowing boat and spend a relaxing day on the water? If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the shore then there is a children’s play area and tea room, which is a tranquil setting to spend an afternoon.

Portishead Open Air Pool is a wonderful place to spend your time on a dry day in the town regardless of how warm it is with the pool maintained to 28 degrees Celsius. A dedicated toddler pool is on site meaning that the little ones can take a worry free dip in clean and safe water too.

The Marina is one of the most beautiful spots in the town with a number of sailing vessels being based here. There is no shortage of places to eat and drink around Portishead Marina with food from a wide array of cultures being served in the cafés and restaurants surrounding the marina.

Make the most of your coastal setting when you’re on a Portishead holiday by spending a traditional British day beside the sea. You’ll be spoilt for choice on where to head for the day out with Clevedon, Weston-super-Mare and Burnham-on-Sea all having great beaches and beautiful piers attracting visitors all year round.

The cities of Bristol and Bath are only a short trip across the county and have plenty to see and do. Both cities are famed for the quality of shops found there and the rich heritage including Bristol Cathedral and the Roman Baths. Bristol Zoo is a fantastic family day out and with over 7000 animals on the site you’ll be marvelling all day at the beauty of some of the creatures. Get out and explore during a holiday in Portishead with nature reserves being found at Eastwood and Battery Point, ideal settings for a gentle stroll through the Somerset countryside.
