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.

A Return Visit

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
Been to the site several times now. Location is good as is the small town and the services it offers. This was the first visit near the seasons end and the site facilities are looking tired and a generally in need of an intense deep service and clean, if nothing else. Definitely a good weather site as in the rain, drizzle, and mist it is quite off putting. The warden were their normal cheerful helpful selves.

Our first and favourite spot

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
Exmoor House was our first ever campsite and experience with a brand new motorhome. We were helped by the staff from day 1, showing us how to plug in, filling up etc and we were delighted with the suggested pitch. The wardens were very helpful and we also found the experience of club membership very good indeed with many friendly faces and advice from our neighbours. We decided to go again this time with our bikes and found many beautiful places to see and explore. The site is immaculate clean, very convenient for the local pub and restaurants in Dulverton. We eat out every evening but please beware to book in advance to avoid disappointment, specially as the weather gets colder. This is most definitely one of our favourites and we should be returning for beautiful walks and cycling. Highly recommended !

We did it Kemps Way.

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site

When looking for a base to explore the Exmoor National Park and its surrounding area, we chose Dulverton as it seemed to be best placed for all things Exmoor. And when your surname is Kemp and you see a site located in Kemps Way, then why look any further. To be fair we did a little more diligence than that, we read the reviews which were all extremely good. Having now spent 4 nights there, we can confirm that our views are the same as the other reviewers. It's location is perfect. How nice is it to be at a site that is 5 mins from a town that has a proper butchers, greengrocers, chip shop and pubs. To be surrounded by the National Park as well. The people are 'proper' country folk too. How can you tell? They say, 'hello' to your dog first. The facilities are top notch. Isn't it nice to have a heated shower block and loo. Pitches are nicely laid out and the Staff are professional and friendly. There were no downsides at all. There are some things to be mindful of though. Remember the altitude in Exmoor ranges from sea level to 1300 feet plus. If you're in a valley you might not get a good TV or Phone signal. That said our Sky/O2 phone signal was okay on site. TV reception wasn't so good. The consequence seemed to be that everyone was hitting the Internet, which had its moments. Lack of TV signal didn't bother us too much. We were so exhausted from walking up and down the hills and together with the sound of the river in the background we were asleep quite early most nights.

Love this place, no complaints

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
We have been using this site every two or three years for the the past 35 years and it rates as probably our favourite site. Beautiful location yet convenient for the shops and eateries etc of Dulverton, and fantastic walking on the moors. Although it was full all the time we were there it was very peaceful, no rowdy groups or loud radios. Debbie and Keith do a great job of running the site, everything clean and tidy and very well managed. Good fish 'n' chips from the local chippy, great cream tea and a marvellous breakfast at the Copper Kettle (not at the same time of course!) Co-op supermarket decided to close for refurbishment during our stay but they kept a small "essentials" pop-up shop going and there are other shops that provide most of what you need, eg butcher, fruit and veg, deli etc. We will definitely be back.

Excellent Location

Exmoor House Caravan Club Site
We had a lovely weekend at this site. The site was full but very quiet. We didn’t use the facilities as we had our own in our motor home. We particularly liked the location as you could walk into Dulverton with its shops, cafes and pubs where we found the locals to be very welcoming and friendly. There were walks by the river and through the woods which were very enjoyable even in the rain. We will definitely be returning.
