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.

Good site for exploring Minehead and Exmoor

Spent 4 enjoyable nights in mid Oct in our caravan. Lovely smallish club site in an old quarry, now attractively wooded to help screen from nearby road. All-weather pitches across several level terraces. Facilities v good and clean, as you'd expect on a club site and Covid precautions were in place. Toilet block also has a couple of separate additional single loos at back, plus dishwashing room (1 person at a time at the moment). Very well cared for site. Small parade of shops nearby (nice meal at Alcombe Tandoori). Mobile signal was fine, can't comment on TV reception. Road noise didn't seem intrusive to us, except possibly for a few pitches nearest the margins, but site is mostly well screened by trees. Town centre and sea front walking distance, and great location to visit Dunster, Exmoor and beyond. Likely to choose site again as only 2 hours away.

Great for motorhomes

Changed our plans when South Wales closed due to Covid restrictions. Ali was good when I booked by phone, and Rob showed us to our irregular shaped pitch (only one available). Site is very clean and tidy, and toilet facilities are spotlessly clean. Site is in a great location with a Co-Op within sight of the site entrance, with a fish and chip take away, Chinese take away and Indian Restaurant (recommended) which also does take away. Easy walk into Minehead, and coast walks to Porlock, or the other way to Dunster Beach or Blue Anchor Bay. Attraction of Blue Anchor (accessible by road from Carhampton) is free sea front parking and toilets (very clean) maintained by local volunteers. Would certainly visit again.

Great location

We had 3 nights at this site and enjoyed our stay very much. This was mainly due to it's quiet location being within a short walk of the town and seafront, and close to a convenience store and various take-aways, all making it ideal for motorhomes. Some of the pitches including ours, are quite uneven, making it necessary to ramp up three wheels. We never managed to get quite level and found the list a bit disconcerting! Access is a little tight in places too. The covid-19 precautions are good, and the hand sanitiser stations were always supplied. We can't comment on the toilet/shower block as we're using our own facilities until this awful virus becomes less of a threat. The wardens went about their business efficiently and cheerfully, though we didn't have much need of their attention during our stay. Minehead is a nice place to spend time, and the seafront provides a nice walk, with the harbour at one end being particularly pleasant and with ample parking for motorhomes. Nice site, will return.

Well done Ali and Rob

We stayed here as part of our current tour. This is a lovely site, perfectly situated for walking and cycling. Minehead was a very pleasant surprise much underrated. We were impressed by how hard the wardens were working whilst having to cope with the covid restrictions and yet they always had time for a friendly chat. This is a one off tour but if we lived closer this would be on our list of frequently visited sites.

Great Location, great wardens too!

Our motorhome broke down at the msp and the wardens Rob & Ali were just so helpful, eventually the RAC turned up and we could move onto our pitch. After the arrival problem our weekend got better & better - What a great place to visit. We have already booked up to go again.
