Bus 28 runs every half hour from Taunton bus station through to Butlins, less frequently on Sundays and in the evening, taking about 1.5 hours

No idea on fare.

To enhance your holiday try the steam train

I think you can get a rail ticket that includes the bus fare. I've seen buses outside Taunton station waiting for trains to arrive. If you look on the www.thetrainline.com it gives times right through to Minehead.

The bus you need is service 28 which picks up next to the southbound platform of Taunton Station.

The timetable is available at firstgroup.com/ukbus/…index.php - scroll down to the number 28 then click on the appropriate day of the week on the right hand side.

Using the steam train is a nice idea but it doesn't go from Taunton and deposits you about 1 mile from Butlins. The bus is door to door so if you want to ride the steam train, you are probably better off doing it as a day trip from Minehead.
