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.

Peaceful

Although a peaceful and clean site it is quite compact if you don’t get the right pitch which unfortunately we had pitch 65 next to the toilet block. We didn’t have much choice when we arrived because we were told that our motorhome was longer than 6 meters (6.4) and with the bike rack was more like 8! Apparently we should of informed them of this when booking. When we arrived there was some oohs and ahah as to whether there was actually any room for us. We are members of the caravan and Motorhome club so they know the length of our unit and when we booked no where was there any mention of size. I must add though that I think they were stand-in wardens. Dulverton village is an easy walk and the fish and chips are amazing.

Wonderful location will use this site again.

We stayed here during wet June. Glad we chose a pitch away from the river as it was dark there, we like seeing the sun . The excellent bakers is a ten minute walk away along the stream near the site it’s a lot longer by road. Lynmouth is a lovely place to visit. We went to Knightshayes and Arlington court both national trust places. Barnstable market is on a Friday ..If coming from Weymouth do not use the A373 from Honiton to Cullompton that I used stopping and reversing a caravan is no fun! Use the A30 M5. Morrison’s in Tiverton easy to get to although the local garage sells fuel at a good price. Wardens keep the place clean and tidy despite the rain . They don’t have a tractor so rubbish is carted off in a wheelbarrow ,make it easier for them and take your rubbish to the large bins near the entrance.

Holiday

Just had a fantastic fortnight at Exmoor House despite the rain. Lovely site and friendly wardens. Debbie and Keith were really welcoming and friendly if only all wardens were like them. Toilets and showers cleanest we have ever seen and only closed for 45 minutes for cleaning other sites need to take note We will be back as so nice and easy walk into town. Local pub the bridge really good but need to book as gets busy. Tantivy in the town does great breakfast and lunch Can’t wait to return

First Timer

Just bought 2012 VW California and this was our first outing. Great initial contact with Debbie who explained the rules of the site and how to find a pitch and get settled in. Keith was a super star who was very experienced in all things VW. Then disaster happened - no gas and no cuppa Keith to the rescue thought it might be a faulty regulator and contacted Masons Kings who said they would sort me out. One hour later back on site cup of tea in hand all sorted. We've had a great introduction into the world of Camper-vanning and can't wait for our next adventure and to be sure we'll re-visit Exmoor House when hopefully the weather will be somewhat kinder to us.

FANTASTIC LOCATION

Small site ideally located for Dulverton and surrounding areas. Site and facilities immaculate and wardens very friendly. Walk to Dulverton village (5 minutes) where there is a well-stocked Co-op or walk to the bridge and sit by the river Walk through Blenheim Gardens in Minehead and visit Dunster village The Grand Western Canal in Tiverton has paths ideal for cycling and walking. The tea rooms provide huge portions, a high tea for 2 came with 8 sandwiches (choice of 2 fillings), 4 scones with jam & cream and 3 different cakes for £17.50. Car parking at the Canal is £3 all day. There is a circular walk around the Tarr Steps which is pleasant and you can stop along the way for a picnic If you love cream teas, visit Periwinkle Cottage at Selworthy and then walk across Exmoor to Dunkery Beacon - plenty of free parking along the route Wimbleball Lake has a footpath which runs around the whole lake - 9 miles in total. Please note you cannot cycle all around the lake Lots to see and do in this area and wardens always ready to give advice - looking forward to visiting again
