A pleasant and peaceful holiday destination, the beautifully maintained Ilminster Club Campsite slopes slightly towards some of the loveliest South Somerset countryside and has great open views. Located just off the A303 the site is ideal as a touring base for Devon, Dorset and Somerset. It also makes a good stopover for travelling further south. The busy market towns of Chard and Ilminster are situated close to the campsite and have a deep history of country trades. You will be staying in Hamstone country where you'll be sure to recognise the golden stone used for buildings wherever you go in this charming area. For dining, the nearby Eagle pub offer good value food.

Ilminster Club Campsite is in an area rich with the legends of King Arthur and you can soak up the tales and the atmospheres of England's great mythical king at nearby Cadbury and Glastonbury. The scenic coast and delightful port of Lyme Regis are also within easy distance of the site and for golf enthusiasts the championship golf course at Windwhistle won't fail to impress. For walkers and bird watchers the nature reserve at Chard Reservoir - is a must-visit - there are lovely trails to follow and more than 150 species of bird to see, including migrant Ospreys.

Directions

Please only use these recommended directions for your final approach and not sat nav, due to alternative roads being unsuitable for towing. Turn left off the A303 (Ilminster - Honiton) at crossroads signposted Crickleaze, Whitestaunton (about 0.75 mile past La Campagna, Restaurant & Bar) into narrow lane. The site is through the second entrance on the left in 250 yards. Do not turn into first entrance (Five Acres House) as it is difficult to back out. For your safety, on leaving the site turn left at junction with A303; in 1 mile at the dual carriageway turn left at signpost Marsh; continue under bridge and turn right to rejoin A303 (E).

Super clean site!

Ilminster Club Campsite
Very helpful and friendly wardens who maintain the site to a high standard - easlily the cleanest shower block we have ever been in. A very quiet site which is close to he A303 but far enough away for no road noise. As others have said, getting out onto the A303 isn't for the faint hearted but with a bit of patience it can be done safely. There are lots of public footpaths around but Somerset doesn't seem keen on making sure they are maintained - crossing the border into Devon showed a marked improvement. In summary - a very nice site and one we hope to return to.

A lovely site

Ilminster Club Campsite
A warm and friendly welcome from both wardens. This is a lovely well kept site with clean and tidy toilet block. We would definitely return if in the area again. We love these small sites.

Good site for stop-over or exploring in vehicle

Ilminster Club Campsite
June 2023 for 3 nights. Good club site, perfect for stop-over heading to/from Cornwall. There is a good Italian restaurant (La Campagne) 1.5 mile walk along back roads (turn left out of site) though you do have to cross the A303 to get to it. 4G was good enough to stream TV. Good TV signal too. A303 is a fast road so we approached and departed with the flow of the traffic.

Rural Solitude

Ilminster Club Campsite
Recently had 11 nights on this charming rural site which is mainatined by the wardens Mandy and Sue in an exemplary state. Relief wardens on duty when we arrived who gave us a cheery welcome with full explanation of site and best pitch options for sunrise, sunset benefits. No children facilities hence 3* for families. About 14 miles off M5 so reasonably accessible for stop off's travelling south (or north) Access off the A303 a bit tricky and leaving instructions with caravan hitched to turn left are a must due to heavy traffic and road layout. Southern coastal towns only 20mls or so away and reached in 45mins. Although called Ilminster, nearest town is Chard. Plenty of attractions - National Trust Properties, Haynes Motor Museum (a must for petrolheads) and RAF museum at Yeovil to name a few. Overall very relaxing.
