Why stay here ...

Exmoor House Club Site is a pretty, peaceful destination which offers superb views up the valley and with some pitches overlooking the River Barle. The caravan park is within walking distance of the quaint old town of Dulverton, with its shops, pubs and restaurants. This is an ideal location for those seeking a relaxing family holiday. It's also well situated for dog owners, with plenty of lovely woodland and National Park walks.

Exmoor House Club Site makes for a marvellous base to explore Exmoor, one of the UK's loveliest and most approachable National Parks. Conveniently, the National Park's Information Centre is located a short stroll from the caravan park and the friendly staff will be only too happy to help you plan out a rewarding schedule of activities for your stay. Keen anglers will want to visit Wimbleball Lake or try fly-fishing at one of the nearby fishing reserves. Leave your car behind and explore this walker's paradise - there are plenty of illustrated leaflets to guide you on your trails, making sure that you don't miss out on any of the superb scenic views. You can also enjoy a scenic steam train journey on the West Somerset Railway, running between Minehead and Bishop's Lydeard.

First timers to Dulverton

We were recommended to this site and how pleased we are to have visited. We arrived to find we only had a choice of 3 pitches. We chose our pitch but found it wasn’t the best for us. We asked the warden if we could move the following day once some guests had left and were told absolutely no problem. We sometimes find wardens not so accommodating of such a request. The facilities were spotless, never had to wait in the toilets and showers and on the whole the site was so friendly. Dulverton is lovely with good pubs, eating places and tea rooms. Had a number of cream teas, the best we felt at Hignam and well worth the walk to get there, but closely followed by the Copper Kettle. Will definitely return again. The wardens were excellent.

Excellent find

Lovely site. Everything clean and tidy. Extremely well run site with Keith and Debbie in charge - going above and beyond to help visitors. Peaceful location next to the River Barle. Dulverton town is a stroll away. We will definitely be back.

What a lovely stay

Stayed on this site for 8 nights. Very peaceful, just the sound of the river Barle and birds twittering. Facilities very clean, grounds too. No play area for children. Within a 10 minute walk you are in the town of Dulverton with a good Co-Op, bakers, fantastic butchers, post office etc. Lots of places for a meal or just sit and have cream tea! Just outside the site there is a grass area which runs alongside the river Barle, why not have a paddle or just sit and take in the views. There are maps, booklets etc for walks, cycle routes, lots of info for the area too. If you are a Motorhomer and like to use the buses check the timetable as we found them not very good unless you travel for some time, then have to leave early to get back! The wardens that were on duty for our stay, Bridget and Bill were really helpful, friendly and have a good sense of humour which was needed as they didn’t have their computers working for two days!! You can imagine what issues they faced when people turned up and they had no idea. They took some very nasty remarks from some people, totally unnecessary, we did feel for them as they worked so hard making sure all their duties were done to perfection. THANK YOU BRIDGET AND BILL, you made our stay even better.

Gem of a Site

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of June.

Exmoor House really is a Gem of a site, especially if you are after a quiet peaceful stay with plenty of walks onto nearby Exmoor. The whole area is also full of historical interest for those that like that sort of thing. For example, Exmoor House, opened in 1855 and the Victorian building that the site is named after, was originally built as Dulverton Workhouse.

One thing that doesn't appear to be mentioned in previous reviews of the site is that although there is a small dog walk on site, which is perfectly acceptable, just a few hundred yards outside the site gates, and in front of Exmoor House is a reasonably sized grass area that is idea for those early morning walks.

The site itself is as described by many previous reviewers, compact, tidy with good facilities. I really can't add anymore, it really is that good. In short, A Real Gem.

Still our favourite site

We have been using this site for the best part of 30 years, returning every couple of years. The location is superb, good walks from the site or a short drive to the moor for more walks, interesting sites etc. Tarr Steps is lovely, we walked there from Withypool and had lunch at the Tarr Steps Inn. Dulverton itself has everything you need (although the bank has closed down, but there is a cash machine limited to £50 in the Co-op). There is a butcher shop, a greengrocer, small Co-op supermarket, hardware store, pet shop, Tantivy that sells papers, booze, sweets, gifts etc. There is also a baker's although it's not in the main part of the town, it's out a bit towards the moor but still easy walking distance from the site. And they offer dog treats in the form of their own bread cooked in beef dripping. The site itself is immaculate, great work from Debbie and Keith keeping everything ship-shape and being extremely helpful. We had a great evening meal in the Lion Hotel, like everywhere else it is dog friendly, decent beer, friendly staff and a good meal. Our only gripe during the whole week was the extremely irritating dog on the next pitch that barked constantly for no reason and the owners who did very little to try to shut it up.
