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 caravan holiday in Somerset. 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.

Very busy

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
We visited during a particularly hot week in July. The site was full over the weekend, which we were aware of when we made booking. A few pitches became vacant on the Monday. It was the luck of the draw if you could find a pitch with shade. Many have no shade. Some pitches have no grass division at all between them and back right up to the wall. The site is very well maintained and the wardens (Keith and Debbie) are amazing, friendly and very helpful. They have knowledge about walks and the local area in general. They do a great job. The are local walks from the site, especially along the river. The village of Dulverton is only a 5 minute walk away with a good variety of local shops, mostly independent, Thai restaurant, fish and chip shop and pubs. NT properties such as Knightshayes and Killerton can be visited if you wish to travel a little further or you could go north to Porlock and west along the coast.

Exmoor Ecstasy

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
All large level hard standing pitches and some serviced surrounded by woodland, the River Barle and historic Dulverton. Two excellent shower blocks. Good boosted tv reception and mobile and wifi. A well kept delightful site by 2 of the best wardens who clearly love their job. The town is an absolute delight and offers lots of browsing opportunities as well as good places to eat catering for a range of culinary tastes and a local coop should you need groceries. A gentle stroll through the woods takes you to Marsh Bridge tearoom where the cream teas must be sampled - freshly baked scones still warm from the oven. Another gentle stroll along the road and beside the river brings you back to the campsite. Also worth visiting are the Heritage Centre - a mine of information about the town and its history and the model railway display. A walk to the weir and the information leaflet add more insight into the town’s history. Our return is guaranteed.

Lovely site in the heart of Exmoor

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
Lovely fairly intimate site, doesn't take long before you're on friendly terms with most folks on the site, Two toilet blocks on a fairly small site makes life a little easier in challenging times. Gorgeous scenery and the site is well sheltered by the majestic hills and trees around. Very easy 5 min stroll into the lovely little town of Dulverton. Good Pub and first class restaurant, Deli, Co-op open till 11pm, loads of fascinating shops in a thriving town. Nearby towns of Minehead, Tiverton and Particularly Dunster are worth exploring. Travel a little further to Lynmouth and Lynton, take the Toll road from Lynton via the Valley of the rocks to Hunters inn, not for the faint hearted but a lot of fun. Nearby are the Tarr steps for a lovely walk up the river and a spot of Lunch at the Tarr farm inn.

Perfect site to explore Exmoor

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
A really lovely and cosy site, next to a river as mentioned above. You can have a cooling bathe or wade at Tarr Steps, about ten miles away, which is well worth a visit. The wardens are friendly and helpful; Dulverton village is about 5 minutes walk with lots of places to eat and a well stocked Co-op store. One of the best sites we've been to, in a perfect location - we'll definitely be back soon.

One of the best

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
Bearing in mind the situation with COVID, we found this site to be one of the most relaxing sites we have been on. The sound of the River Barle running over rocks provided an excellent background to this peaceful site. We do not normally go back to sites we have visited as we prefer new experiences but this one is different - we will definitely be going back! The site was very well kept and the staff friendly. The shower blocks were as new.
