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 visit to Minehead

This was our first visit to the Minehead site. The site is well located within easy walking distance of the centre of Minehead following the instructions given by the warden. If you want to venture further afield then the bus service is good running at half hourly interval during the weekdays and obviously less frequent on the weekend. If you have a dog there is an on site dog walk not the largest but more than adequate for the first and last ablutions of the day. If you want to go to the beach with your 🐕 dog the you will be out of luck from the 1st May until September. I believe that the beach at Blue Anchor is dog friendly but you will either need your car or have to take the motorhome. The centre of Minehead still has a variety of shops including their fair share of charity ones. Satellite TV reception is a possibility providing you are on a suitable pitch avoiding the 🌲 trees. Despite the nearness to a main road there was very little noise at night. Not ideal for young family members as there are no facilities on site for letting off steam. The route from the M5 with a larger unit can be a little"hairy" at times as the road in parts is narrow, I unfortunately meet a 32 tonner and had to get within touching distance of the hedgerow and left it to the driver of the lorry to squeeze through. There are also a few unforgiving walls!! All in all, just take your time. The facilities are up to the usual club standard.

Second time we have been to the site

The site was very clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful and could not do enough. Watch out for ticks if you are a dog owner

Our first site and a good experience

Newbie here so no context to this review at all. That said we found the site easily. The staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities were all clean and well laid out. The only tiny hiccup we had was partly my inexperience. The pitch was on enough of a slope to need chocks under the front wheels to level us up. The pitch was gravelled and my van has an automatic gear box. A certain amount of gravel got moved around in my attempts to get onto the chocks. I'm sure I'd find it easier next time but I've used the chocks on other surfaces without problems so though it worth a mention. I did try to clear up after myself and I apologise if I left any gravel where it shouldn't be! : ) Tim

Good clean site in a convenient location

We stayed here just on the tail end of the first Beast from the East. The site manager kept us informed of the snow conditions on site, and even undertook to ring us an hour before we set out from home, to give us a report on the latest snow conditions on site. When we arrived we were given time to select our pitch, and the check in process was quick and easy. The site and toilet / shower block were immaculate, and the later was nice and warm. The site is well located for walking to Tesco, Morrisons and LIDL. Also Indian restaurant and chip chop and CO-OP are a few minutes walk away. The main shopping area, and esplanade were walkable within 15-20 minutes walk. Bus stops for other places along the coast were within 10 minutes walk. There is a steam railway, with a station in Minehead. We walked along the coast to Dunster Castle and back and Dunster village is pretty with quaint buildings and cafes. Another day we caught the bus to Porlock, and walked down to Porlock Weir through the woods, about 2 miles, where we found a delightful pub, The Bottom Ship Inn, full of character, with a thatched roof, and bustling with customers even at midday on Thursday. On another day we caught the bus to Watchet, a pretty harbour and village, and enjoyed a lovely cream tea. On Saturday we did the Minehead Parkrun, 5k along the esplanade, with 90 other keen joggers. All in all we had a great time, and will definately be returning soon
