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.

A gem of a site.

We spent a lovely new year here. The Wardens are testament to what you wish all wardens were like- very helpful, friendly and quietly efficient - all you could ask for. I really shouldn’t tell you about this site. It’s so well positioned in the pretty, small town with great pubs, shops and places to eat. Perfect for walking and cycling - if you’re fit or own an E bike! The site is waterside and full of wildlife and kept immaculately. It’s really too good to share so please don’t tell everyone or we won’t get a pitch when we want to return!

Festive season vist

We have stayed at Exmoor House three times previously at Christmas and this year stayed on for New Year too. The welcome from the wardens on arrival was excellent. This site is ideally situated for the festive season (or any time of year) as it is so close to the town of Dulverton so that you can easily walk to the pubs, restaurants and shops. The site was immaculate as were the facilities. The wardens are knowledgeable about the local area and are able to recommend local walks and places of interest to visit. The wardens hosted a drinks and snacks event on both Christmas eve and New Years eve which was a great opportunity to socialise with others on site. The site was very peaceful despite being full and close to town. We had a very enjoyable stay and will be returning again next Christmas

Superb site for peace and quiet and friendliness

As new members this was our first C&M Club site. It was also our first touring excursion with our new/second hand caravan. Double jeopardy then! However, we couldn't have chosen a better site to start our new hobby/pastime and holiday basis of choice off with. What a wonderful little site. As we no longer need to worry about facilities for kids, Exmoor House provides the perfect choice. I/we can echo all of the positive comments from previous reviewers - warm welcome, helpful with choice of pitch, quiet and very friendly, easy drive around the site, super facilities, etc. There are no play areas so I only gave 3 for the 'good for families' question, but if your children like walking then there's plenty for them to do in the local areas. We only stayed here for 3 nights between Xmas and New Year, but we will be back again in 2019.

A really good winter site

This was the first visit to this site. Always been put off by town location but, certainly in winter, it was very quiet despite the site being full. Small town within walking distance and Exmoor a short drive away. Site in a lovely sheltered spot and, as expected from a club site, was well looked after. Really good site. Had to give a mark to families to submit review but no idea as there were no children on the site. Dogs seemed happy!

Warm welcome and relaxing week

Just had a week at this site, mid November and site is lovely. Nice warm welcome on arrival, shower blocks etc all kept spotless and great location at the center of Dulverton with the moors easily accessible by car. Was surprised how busy the site was, Friday 17th November site was just about full and Saturday was fully packed but plenty of room on each pitch so did not feel enclosed at all. This site has a feel of a very large car park rather than a grassy rural site as the back of the site is surrounded by houses staggered up the valley and is mainly hard standing with small areas of grass but this works well being completely dry in the winter months and makes the site very motor home friendly, also plenty of wildlife here in the valley, owls hooting at night and pheasants regularly making an appearance. Look forward to visiting again but would advise to book early to avoid disappointment if you are looking for an autumn break as it does seem to be very popular.
