Why stay here ...

Set on a small hillside, Minehead Club Site is spread across several flat areas, all of which are attractively screened from the road with plentiful trees and bushes. For shopping and all the attractions of a traditional British seaside resort, Minehead is only a 15-minute walk from the caravan site. Another tempting attraction nearby is Dunster Castle. Beautiful Exmoor, famous as Lorna Doone country, is also a popular draw, especially for walkers and those with dogs. There are also excellent bus links to explore the Quantocks, Porlock, Taunton and Dulverton.  

The coastal path near Minehead Club Site is marvellous, with many of its vistas being more impressive than the last. The little lanes and small, intimate villages, such as Porlock, Porlock Weir, Selworthy and the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth are all well worth the visit for their charm and easily accessible from the caravan park. You can also enjoy a scenic steam train journey to Bishops Lydeard which takes in plenty of stops along the way. Be it countryside walks or a taste of the rural life, there is bound to be something to delight visitors to this tranquil destination.

Small friendly site

Although a small site, Minehead has everything you require for a quiet peaceful stay, and to use as a base for getting around Someset/North Devon. The site is nicely landscaped - most of the pitches being nice & flat. There are no full service pitches. however, this is no big deal because as Minehead is a small site, everything is at hand anyhow within a short distance. The rear perimeter of the site has a steep bank of thick woodland ......in between the site and the A39, there is a wooded area for dog walking .......and at the entrance end of the site there is a small fire station next door. The staff are extremely friendly & helpful. They run a nice little shop from the office, and they run the site obviously well, as it's super clean, and maintained to a high level. The toilet/shower block is clean, and well looked after. You will find that maybe there are not as many cubicles as with other sites, so would imagine it gets full quick when the site is full (which I am told is quite often). We walked into Minehead, which took approximately 25 minutes. Next day we walked into Dunster village using the scenic back lanes, and that took approximately 35 minutes. You can use local buses to get further afield, such as Porlock, Taunton, Lynton & Lyndmouth, Watchet, Bridgewater etc. There is a good selection of local shops by the site, in Alcombe, such as Fish & Chip shops, Indian and Chinese food, Newsagents, Co-Op store - you will not want for anything. We heard good things about the site & area, and we were not disappointed - we will return !!

Recent visit again to Minehead

Minehead is one of our favourite sites, it Is a site that despite being close to a town still feels a little rural and quiet. The site is well laid out and the upgrade on the facilities makes the feel a whole let better. The warden team work very hard to make everything just right for visitors to the site, a big thank you to them for their labours. Another reason to visit this site, is that there is stuff to do if the weather is not good, and boy this time it was not brilliant. Sadly the steam railway is closed for an upgrade, left something missing from the town, but open again shortly. Discovered the Somerset Museum in Taunton, a really interesting to place to visit if the weather is not good. Gives a good picture of the history of Somerset. You can easily get there on the bus to, there is a regular service from Minehead. The food in the café there is great, one of the best bacon baps I have tasted in years, the bread was warm and there was a good amount of bacon, the cakes are great too, thoroughly recommend a visit there

Great site

This is a lovely site with just one problem for us which was levelling the caravan. It was impossible to level our caravan when backed onto the pitch but fortunately the warden suggested putting it sideways which was an improvement. This would not deter us from visiting the site at a later date. The wardens are really good and the facilities are immaculate. We liked the beach at Dunster for walking the dogs. This is a really good site which luckily is open all year.

A good introduction to caravanning

Took our first van for our first night to Minehead last weekend. The site was clean, tidy and quiet. We had a lovely welcome to the site which gave a positive impression of the Caravan and Motorhome club.The toilet block was most impressive all looked new and very clean indeed. The 20 min walk to the seafront for chips by the sea was perfect. Will go back again for sure.

Bright and Pleasant Site

This site is directly accessible off the A39 which is a godsend - no messing about akobg narrow lanes! The site itself is well laid out and whilst there maybe sone levelling issues with sone of the ptches i have never felt the need to use blocks. The toilet block is kept immaculate and is central to all pitches which are all well maintained. Minehead town centre is a ten minute walk away and has some unusual and interesting shops to browse. The seafront is close by.. Tesco, Morrison's and Lidl are a five minute drive away and a Co-op is almost on the doorstep. Bus routes can take you to Taunton, Watchett and Dunster. This is a great little site with helpful and pleasant wardens and is even better because it is open all year.
