Football Tours at Butlins Minehead, Somerset
ESF Festival of Football
Butlins Minehead is something of a jewel in the crown for ESF. Located right on the beach, yet on the doorstep of the great wilderness of Exmoor National Park, it really is a magnificent setting for an exciting end of season tour.
The ESF festivals in Minehead are the biggest festivals of their kind in the South West, with over 200 boys and girls teams of all abilities participating. Staged at Minehead Town FC and the picturesque villages surrounding the town, the festival attracts teams from all over England, Wales and further afield every year.
Accommodation and Entertainment
All teams are accommodated at Butlins action packed resort in Minehead for the duration of the tour. The onsite facilities at Butlins are fantastic. There’s a huge variety of sports and leisure activities, the Splash Waterworld with flumes, slides and wave machines, superb evening entertainment venues and great places to eat and drink.
There’s the Aerial Rope Course with the stomach churning ‘leap of faith’ and climbing wall, the Multi Sports Court with football and basketball courts, the Funfair with free rides, the Go Kart Track, the Adventure Golf, the onsite Cinema, Ten Pin Bowling…. we could go on!*
The evening entertainment is another key factor which sets Butlins apart from all other holiday centres. There’s a huge programme of entertainment on offer in the premier entertainment venues. From top TV and music stars to brilliant daytime shows and spectacular evening events, there’s amazing entertainment for the whole family at Butlins.
There’s a full range of accommodation in Standard, Silver, Gold and Deluxe grades on offer to suit all budgets. If your club like a bit of luxury on tour, the new £12million West Lakes Village will be a beautifully serene place to rest your head after a day of action at ESF.
The apartments at Butlins are ideal for families, providing everyone with enough space to relax in comfort. With separate lounge and kitchen areas, 2 or 3 bedrooms and bathroom, the apartments are fully equipped with everything you could need on tour.
Butlins’ half board dining plans are always popular with our teams on tour. There’s a great range of food on offer and you can go back for more as many times as you like, perfect for hungry young footballers after a day of action at the pitches.
