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 to visit when touring in Somerset is nearby 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.

Recommended Site.

We just spent 4 nights at this site during school holidays. as always we look at the reviews before booking any club site, and I must say the reviews do not do this site the recognition it deserves. upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and friendly welcome, we were advised to walk the site to choose a pitch as most roads are dead ends. this is for your benefit as turning will be difficult should you not like those specific pitches. normally i always use my own shower in the motorhome! but I must say the cleanliness and conditions of the showers and facilities were amazing, so much so that for the first time in 2 years I did prefer using the site showers, as did my wife. they are always locked and you are given keys for both Male and female. the staff are so friendly, I damaged the grass when reversing my van into position, I did go and inform the staff and their response was amazing. "dont worry sir, it will grow back. dont threat" the site is very well looked after, and even in February the grass was perfect. except for my tire Mark's!!! it is a short walk to the town and a 3 mile hike to Dunster castle, I would recommend using the back rd, it's more up and down but the views are incredible. also if you can, try Porlock and Porlock weir. these are amazing places. the pubs are amazing especially the ship in Porlock weir. the SW coast walk is also nearby and amazing. if you want exmoor, a car would be advisable but there are local cabs which you can get from the office, and reasonably priced. there were families on site with kids, and I must say that we never really heard them at all. compared to some sites we've been to, it was a pleasure. would we stay here again?? yes... without fail, just this time we would maybe like the car with us to explore more.

Members drive to fast on site

Lovely clean site, very handy for Minehead`s attractions. My only concern is that vehicles on site are not sticking to the 5 mph limit. With a young family I had to quickly move to the grass to avoid a car and we witnessed speeding on numerous occasions throughout our short stay. This is not going to be popular but it appears to be the more senior members who are not abiding by the 5mph rule.

Enjoyed the experience

The site was easy to find and was about a 15min walk into Minehead centre. The pitches were well spread and level and we were allowed to choose our pitch. This was our first motorhome trip and if the facilities on this site are typical of all the clubs sites we will be more than happy. The toilet and shower block were ultra clean and warm. We had some waste water problems in our motor home so made good use of the excellent facilities on this site including dishwashing and shower block. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend visiting this site and in summer I imagine it would be ideal. Regards J & M

One of the best.

We were really impressed by the site, and although it was not full, it was busier than expected so it is clearly valued by other members It was quiet, peaceful, and extremely well maintained by the excellent wardens. The shower and toilet facilities were exceptionally clean, warm and welcoming. Dishwashing was also very clean and warm with plenty of hot water. The service points were well located and were kept exceptionally clean by the wardens. It was an easy walk into and from the centre of Minehead (15 mins max, gentle walk) which is worth a visit. Nearby Co-Op (5 mins) store seemed to stock everything one would need. We caught the 28 bus to Watchett and the free Hinckley Point C (HFC) community bus back to Minehead centre which gave us an inland trip out and a coastal return trip. We spoke to many locals on our travels who were very friendly and helpful. The bus to Porlock is two hourly at this time of year, so we did not take this, but drove out via the A39 via Porlock to Lynmouth and on to Barnstable. Our van is 6.34m, would not want to do this in anything larger or at a busier time of year as it was a bit scary in places, steep hairpin bends, single track etc. A really enjoyable few days away.
