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.

A rural site on the edge of town

The site is in a woodland setting but only 1 mile from the seafront and not far from Exmoor. We had a lovely stay. The wardens were welcoming and everything was as we would expect it to be. Many places to visit nearby especially Dunster Castle and gardens - very family friendly and one could spend 2-3 days looking round the castle, grounds and facilities. We plan to go back sometime this month.

Hopcott in Minehead is a fantastic site, and the wardens so helpful, friendly and hard working. Thank you Tony and Helen 😁

Minehead, is a lovely little town on the edge of Exmoor with loads of great little shops and very dog friendly in many of the eating establishments! The site is immaculately clean, tidy and very well organised. The facilities are so well kept that it's like being at home! The dog walking area is also fantastic, however some guests do abuse this facility and do not pick up!! The wardens cannot be responsible for this, dog owner's must be more respectful of other users. Tony and Helen, along with Trevor and Sally are excellent hosts.

Nice Site

We had some problems in levelling our motorhome, but had a good stay at the site. toilets and showers were clean, the wardens were very friendly. we liked the walk to the city and the beach. There is a fire station nearby - but there was no alarm - so only noise came from the street which didn't disturb our dreams.

Hillside site

This is a good little site. The pitches all seem to be sloping and levelling blocks are needed, even then we weren't quite level. There's only one chemical disposal site and it's a bit of a treck down the hill to it. Otherwise very good, and easy to walk into Minehead.

Good location, small site

A small site that I initially described as cramped but after a weeks stay a fairer analysis is ‘snug’. Most of the pitches are much smaller than normal with cars parked across the front rather than to the side but it actually didn’t matter and gave it a cosy feel rather than cramped. The wardens who were there for our week were very friendly, helpful and worked very hard to keep the site spotless and the lovely flower baskets looking their very best. The site itself needs some updating including some levelling of pitches and more modern showers etc but the WiFi was good and, as previously stated, punches above its weight despite its faults thanks to the hard work of the wardens. There is a nice easy walk into Minehead past some useful and convenient local shops and services including an excellent Fish & Chip shop and Indian restaurant. The steam train is a good day out with a little planning as to where you want to get off and explore / visit as is Dunster Castle and village. Minehead itself has little it no life after about 6pm apart from a couple of amusement arcades. Even the fish and chip shop in the main shopping street was shut by 7pm on Friday (although there was a kiosk near the front/ station open. Lovely beach though (no dogs in the summer with no alternative offered that we could see) and a good location for many places in North Somerset/ Exmoor by either public transport or car.
