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.

First Timer love the peace and quiet

First time at a Club site and what an impression, if all Club sites are as well maintained and presented as this I look forward to a lot of visits. On arrival a lovely lady greeted me and felt almost embarrassed to ask me for my Membership Card (which I had left in the van). She explained the available pitches by highlighting them on a very clear map, toilet drop point and Motorhome Service Point was also pointed out. The lady mentioned something about water that I missed but soon understood as there is no water on the pitches. So I returned to the Motorhome service point to top up the tank. The only gripe I have with the whole experience was that the water flow from this tap was so slow! But hey, you only do it once. Reading the reviews I see someone got confused about the pitch marker and parking. This was explained to me as rear offisde corner OR front near side corner for continental vans. This was explained as the 'passenger' corner. Now I know some continental vans are right hand drive but the mischief in me couldn't help wondering if some foreign person whose grasp of English wasn't great would wonder how to get his passenger side to the peg. Just me being silly. (smiley emoji here). One thing I did miss was the key for the facilities. A Warden came to my pitch to advise that the shop would close at 5 so if I wanted my key I had better go now. He explained they normally wait awhile so that we could set up etc. Very kind of him to seek me out and out me right I thought. A site team on the ball there. Having got my key, as my head hit the pillow a sudden thought? Why do they lock the facilites. Being close to the town are they struck by vandalism? Did we need to lock everything away for fear of it disappearing overnight? Is the need to lock facilities the norm for Club sites I wondered. Anyway such fears receded as the land of nod took precedence. That's me being security concious. The next day was exactly what I wished for, peace and quiet. After busy work schedules a few days away in such tranquil settings is exactly what the Doctor ordered. Being close to the main road the occasional siren could be heard but nothing intrusive. In my review tick boxes I have given it a one for families. I saw no facilites for children such as a play ground or field they could let of steam and make noise, such as they do when excited and enjoying life. I hope this is not taken as a detriment to the overall site which was excellent. The blessed child things are entitled to life as much as us oldies! (second smilie emoji here) One final note on the pitch peg. Yes I liked it, it was clear and concise where your pitch was. I have been to many overcrowded sites where guy ropes and tent pegs intermingle as trip hazards for unwary. Yes, I am a fan of pitch pegs. I will return to Minehead at some point in the future, but first work, after which, which club site next?

Good location

First time here. God location, with a 15 minute walk to Minehead -which is why it is popular with motorhomes. Toilets and showers up to usual club standard. Welcoming staff. Well kept site, easlily found. Good chip shop and Co-Op 5 minutes walk down the road. In Minehead the Old Ship A'Ground is a really good pub serving real quality food. Went three times during our five night stay. A trip on the steam railway from Minehead is great fun, especially the Cheese and Cider special..Dunster Castle well worth a visit.

Beautiful Site

What a gem this site is, the facilities are spotless and our pitch was great. It was hardstanding and nice and flat. All the pitches are hardstanding, so you can't go wrong. The wardens were extremely helpful and very friendly. The site is very well positioned with Minehead being within walking distance. There are several takeaways in Alcombe, just around the corner from the site. The fish and chips from Seafare were epic! There is a dog friendly beach at Dunster and Blue Anchor Bay. Dunster Castle is well worth a visit.

Immaculate

Stayed here earlier in May. Site is kept to exacting standards by the wardens ( and relief wardens while we were there ). Although on a main road and adjacent to the Fire Station, the site is tranquil, with little road noise noted Close to the amenities of Minehead for supplies ( Morrisons and Tesco both have a fuel station ) Central for touring the northern part of Somerset, with Lynton and Lynmouth close by. Porlock Wier is a pleasant place to pass an evening with it's pub producing good beer and home cooked food. Dunster and it's castle worth a visit. West Somerset Railway runs from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard through some outstanding countryside. Quantock Brewery Tap is just outside the station at Bishops Lydeard, and serves a fair pint of beer and cider - friendly and informative staff - enjoy.
