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.

Peace and Tranquility, helped by the wardens

Our second visit of the year Exmoor House site, and it remains one of the best, particularly if you like, peace, quiet and the delights of a fantastic Exmoor location. Much has been said about the site in previous reviews, pointing out things such as how spotless the facilities are, how well kept the site is, how convenient nearby Dulverton is and the closest shops etc.

This is all true of course, but there’s one thing that doesn’t get much of a mention and that’s the peace and tranquility. Noise is limited to the babbling of the adjacent River Barle, and a distant peal of bells at Dulverton All Saints Church. All very rural, peaceful and relaxing.

The wardens play a very important part in maintaining the idyll. Instead of the noisy, petrol driven mini tractors that some site’s custodians seem fond of driving around to collect rubbish or just for transport, Exmoor house wardens make do with...... shanks’s pony and a wheelbarrow. Ok, it’s only a small site, so the silent “man- powered” rubbish collection works well and probably wouldn’t work very well at larger locations, but at Exmoor house it’s entirely appropriate, and there’s no rush, which harks back to an earlier, more peaceful, gentler age.

As well as being virtually silent doing it “by hand” is also entirely ecological and dare I say, keeps wardens fit (and young!) (I should say it’s almost silent... the wardens are very friendly so do actually stop and talk sometimes!)

Exmoor house is a now a firm favourite. I’ll leave it to you to work out why. Sshhhh... don’t tell everyone.

Charming site and location

We stayed for 6 nights at the end of August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The site managers are very helpful and keep the site lovely and its a short walk from the pub, shops and tea rooms. So many lovely places nearby to visit - Exmoor, Lynton & Lynmouth and Minehead. We will definitely be returning soon.

First Class Site

Stayed here for 4 nights in the last week of August This site is located on the edge of Dulverton, gateway to Exmoor. It provides many amenities on the doorstep, in fact everything we needed for a great holiday. There are excellent eateries, butchers, bakers, all within walking distance, and many places of interest in the local area. Further afield the North Somerset /Devon coastlines are within easy reach, and offer some great days out. Within the site boundaries the views and tranquility make for a fantastic base. The wardens keep the site and facilities immaculate, and do so with a great attitude and friendly manner. One of the best sites we have visited

Exmoor is what its about!

This is a lovely quiet site in a fantastically dog friendly town..... It's an easy stroll into the town with an array of lovely eateries......most of which welcome dogs. Driving from Dulverton in a variety of directions lead across beautiful countryside. (Exmoor is less bleak than Dartmoor) Many of the roads are single track with passing places and on some your maximum speed is probably going to be around 20mph!!! Worthwhile though. Tarr steps and Wimbleball reservoir are worth a visit. We also like the Porlock Hill toll road for a picnic and wortleberry picking. (Similar flavour to a bilberry) Horner woods is another nice walk. Lynton and Lynmouth are lovely places but always busy. We did find dedicated motor home parking in Lynton (on a previous visit) where it is always easier to park and use the funicular down to Lynmouth. Will definitely come back to this site. We opted for a standard pitch with no awning as that was all we required but our pitch turned out to be a very tight fit for our caravan lengthwise. Space widthways was fine. The wardens are very friendly and helpful. There's a lovely ambience on this site.

Peaceful location and great wardens!

We are at the end of a two week stay at the Exmoor House club site. Debbie and Keith, the site wardens, have been amazing. They are so helpful, friendly, happy and hard working. A big thank you to Debbie and Keith for a lovely stay! We visited as a couple with a dog. The site is surrounded by picturesque woodlands, excellent for dog walking and yet the small town is just a few minutes walk away. The Coop was well stocked. Would recommend the pies and Cornish pasties from the bakery which is about 5 to 10 minutes walk from town (turn left at the Post Office and walk along the river). We had a very nice meal at The Bridge Inn and had excellent takeaways from the fish and chip shop. For walking... We found the map of local footpaths from the tourist centre useful. Wimbleball Lake is worth visiting.
