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.

Great site BUT

Great location but the way we were told to park with no devastation was a bit upsetting,as we have a campervan and like to have our sliding door facing the evening sun ,and having sett up as instructed the warden appeared and proceeded to pace out our van to make sure I was perked correctly (much to the amusement of our neighbors) .

Little gem close the lovely town of Minehead

We enjoyed a 4 night stay at this lovely site. We originally booked for 3 nights but decided to stay for an extra night as were enjoying the walking so much. The site is beautifully maintained and the wardens are friendly and helpful. There is an excellent Information Room where you can find everything you need except maps but these are available to buy from the office. The small local map is cheaper to buy in the site office than in Minehead Information Centre. The facilities are well maintained and clean and the pitch we stayed on (number 22) was level, weed free and the grass had just been cut. The location is brilliant for Minehead with an easy 10-15 minute walk and there are plenty of places in Minehead to eat and drink. Alcombe's facilities are also just a 5 minute walk away and the Indian Restaurant there is excellent. They have a banquet night on Tuesday and Wednesday where you can have a 3 course meal for £12.50. Alcombe also has a bakery, fish and chip shop, pizza takeaway and chinese takeaway as well as a co-op, so everything you could want is close by. Tom's fish and chip shop in Minehead is lovely as well. If there is just one thing on the site that needs improving, it is the water pressure. We tried to put water into our motorhome on arrival using our flexi-hose and it took ages as the pressure was so poor. We had to give up in the end as someone else was waiting to use it. Despite this, we would still go back as it's such a lovely site in a great location with friendly and helpful wardens.

Immaculate site

The site is kept to an extremely high standard, with all facilities clean and in good order, with the staff really friendly and helpful. It was fairly quiet but right next to a good road so access was easy. We could walk in to Minehead, about a mile to the centre which has several pubs where you can eat. I'd definitely recommend and would stay again.

A lovely well maintained site

This was our first visit to this site and it certainly won't be our last as it's a lovely site. The wardens are very helpful and have lots of local knowledge regarding walking in the area. The site is well laid out and all the facilities are well maintained and spotlessly clean. Some of the pitches require levelling blocks, but none are very sloping. Although the site is on a busy road which can be a little noisy during the day, it was quiet at night. A lovely weekend at a lovely site - thank you!
