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.

Super site with excellent wardens

Excellent site, and the wardens work very hard to keep the site spotless and extremely tidy. They should be congratulated on there hard work. The toilet block is old, but so well kept, even the shower curtains are washed and ironed. The taps and empty points are washed and swept daily. The flowers and site is so tidy, and even all leaves are swept up. Bird feeders attract many birds. They even paint the office. Wonderful, thank you so much for a lovely stay. Look out other wardens you have a lot to learn from the staff at Minehead!!!!

Will return

Our 1st visit to this site in our campervan. I am sure we will return. A nice site and although near the main road noise was not an issue, Set out in little no trough roads among wooded areas. Facilities clean and what you expect from a club site. Helpful. Wardens are helpful and friendly. Situated for coast and moor.

Walk to Your Heart’s Content......

We’ve visited Minehead for the third time recently and stayed 12 nights. Despite terrible weather, we still managed to walk every day with our dog. The site is so well located. It’s a relatively easy journey from our home in Kent and once on site, everything is positioned nearby. A Co-Op up the road, Fish and Chips in Alcombe nearby, the seafront a 20 minute walk away and a ton of great walks in every direction. Facilities on site are well maintained and clean and wardens friendly and very hard working. They keep the site looking really good even in winter. The dog walk on site is secure and good fun for the dogs and a special mention has to be made for the Wifi on this site as it is excellent; no problems streaming movies, sport and music at all times. Tv reception more difficult with all the trees. Already planning our next visit.......

A Little Gem

An absolute gem of a site. Easy to find with good access from the main road. Although situated on the 'Minehead bypass' this is a very quite well looked after site. On arrival the welcome and brief were superb. Note that after booking in you'll be asked to walk the site to find a pitch. There is good reason for this, each of the spurs on which the pitches are situated is a cul-de-sac.The facilities were kept immaculate during our 5 night stay and the site staff were always on the go keeping the site up the high standard they have obviously set themselves. What is nice the little touches they have brought to the site, bird feeders, planters and some nice touches in the bathrooms. Leave this site off your to do list at your peril. It's a gem.

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
