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.

The Best CAMC Site We've Visited

Minehead Caravan Club Site
A short break of 3 nights, mid November and it was excellent. The site team were really warm and genuine with a great welcome and really caring attitude. The site is relatively small and is well laid out with small cul-de-sac pitch areas, which add to the feeling of privacy and seclusion. The sites was really quiet and peaceful, set in woodland, which provided welcome shelter from the Autumn breezes, but inevitably led to large volumes of leaf fall, but the site team were on the case each day keeping them at bay. The site is very well located, around a 15 minute walk to Minehead sea front or town centre, which offers plenty of dog-friendly cafes, pubs and other facilities - definitely worth mentioning the Hairy Dog (pub) and Butterflies Cafe as two really welcoming and very dog-friendly businesses. We will definitely be returning in the near future and Thank You to the Site Team for keeping the site so great and the best CAMC site we've visited so far!

A Great Site

Minehead Caravan Club Site
We like this site because there are so many walks directly from the site. You can pick up the coast path on the seafront or walk over the hill behind to Dunster. If that’s too far just walking down to the seafront is pleasant and if you time your visit correctly there is the steam train and the open top bus to take you further afield. It’s very useful having the local shops and restaurant as well. The site can feel slightly more cramped than others as cars tend to have to park in front of the caravan and awning rather than alongside. Not sure about what was happening with the staffing this time as the lovely lady seemed to be managing on her own which meant ringing the bell and waiting for assistance. Felt sorry for her as the site was very full. For a very small site the number of speeding drivers was extraordinary, both car drivers (members and visitors clearly) and Motorhomes. It would seem despite the club’s efforts people still don’t understand the need to reduce their speed and must feel what they are doing is acceptable. The poster outside reception detailed the excessive driving that had been taking place but I suspect no one read it. Would it be sensible to hand this out and to have some driver education?

first outing in our camper van

Minehead Caravan Club Site
This was our first visit to the Minehead Club Site and it won`t be our last. We love this area of the country and have visited Minehead and Dunster many times. We found the staff to be really friendly and the fellow campers were great to chat to. Bathroom facilities were very clean. We will definitely be back especially as this site is open all year round.

Excellent Site.

Minehead Caravan Club Site
This is the second time we have stayed at Minehead Club site. The staff are friendly helpful and knowledgeable The site and facilities are very clean and there is always hot water. It is only a ten minute walk into Minehead centre were you can find places to eat and drink and all the shops you would need. There is a promenade that will take you to the harbour and give access to the national coastal path, walking the opposite way will on the promenade will give you take you to Dunster beach and Dunster castle. The open top bus to Lynmouth via Exmoor is not to be missed, (don't forget your bus pass!)

Super site

Minehead Caravan Club Site
Our 1st time at this site, but it wont be our last! Very clean modern facilities, terrific site staff who work very hard to keep it clean and tidy for and make our stay such a pleasant one. Great walk to Dunster Castle and such a pretty village. You must do the open top bus trip to Lynmouth, the scenery is spectacular. Thank you
