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.

Peaceful stay

When we first turned up thought it was a bit unusual to park and walk to find a pitch, but after realising it is too narrow to turn as all the site is mainly little end cul de sacs. Wardens really helpfull took the dog for a walk came back and the warden was trimming our hedges as he thought we were missing out which to me I didn’t think so just goes to prove how these guys work hard day in day out to try and keep the upkeep of the sites and ensure people who are staying are satisfied with their stay Not all site wardens are like this as some sites they seem to treat you as if you’re a burden to them sometimes Toilets and showers were immaculate I think maybe they should start cleaning later in the day like some sites have as it’s a bit rushed in the mornings before it’s closed for cleaning but this is the only negative thing I can say Overall site was great and peaceful food places 3 minute walking distance Town 15 minutes walk beach 5 minutes further This is one of the best sites we have stayed on and will definitely be coming back Book this site you won’t be disappointed

Minehead best site on the network

We have just had 4 glorious nights on the Minehead site From the moment we arrived it was excellent, the wardens are the nicest and best we have come across in 5 years of using CAMC sites. They couldn't do enough to help and had excellent knowledge of the local area with help on walks, bus timetables and places to go The site is even better than the normal high standard we have all come to recognise as CAMC. Everyday the wardens are out cleaning the service points, the toilets & showers, the laundry and the washing up room The site is in a lovely position easy to access from the main road but peaceful once on your pitch. A lovely walk into town or the local shops & a great local pub We were lucky to have lovely weather, hopefully we will return again next year and have another great stay

Good site BUT has lots of TICKS - Bring your pets at their peril

This is a good site. Up to the usual standard for the CAMC. A small site set on a number of levels this works well and is easy to navigate. Wardens are professional and capable, providing a good service.The wider area is excellent with a number of fantastic tourist attractions that are well worth a visit. These include Dunster Caste and of course the fantastic steam railway. The seafront is excellent although and not unusually so there is restrictions on dogs being on the beach through the summer season and beyond. The coastal walks are excellent though and breath-taking. A good seaside high street with some interesting shops and pubs intermingled with the usual beach equipment and bazaar type establishments. My only real issue with this site is that it has a real problem with ticks. In two days we pulled off some 20 or more ticks from our two dogs. The wardens had clearly marked the dog walk as "might" having ticks. I suggest a stronger and clearer sign might be more responsible. Of course CAMC cannot be held in any way responsible for the presence of ticks but this should be made clear at the time of booking. I understand that the presence of red deer in the area means that this is a persistent issue. In essence a reasonable, but not special, site with a real and serious problem for animals. I personally would not go back here.

First time on this site

We had been intending to visit West Somerset for some time and finally made it this July, when we had a 4 night stay with grandchildren. We received a warm welcome on arrival and, when the ground proved unusually resistent to out heavy duty awning pegs, were offered the loan of a lump hammer. On-site facilities were well up to the standard we have come to expect from Club sites and there was never a queue, eg, for showers. Although the site is adjacent to the A39, it is remarkably quiet. Out and about we enjoyed trips to Dunster and Lynmouth, although Porlock Hill made the latter a tad challenging. There is a lot of choice for eating out, both in Minehead and Dunster, but the Castle Coffee House in Dunster stands out for its very attentive staff and "home cooked" food. We will defintely be returning to this site

Spot On

Our first time in Somerset and at this site with our motorhome, up to the usual excellent standard. Shops nearby. Very convenient for Dunster & Minehead whether you are walking or cycling and even Porlock is nearby though you have to use the hilly A39 to get there. Dunster and the castle are well worth a visit and be sure to use the West Somerset Railway; consider walking back from Blue Anchor or even Watchet as a pleasant and easy walk to Minehead.
