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.

Cracking little site with super good wardens

Minehead Caravan Club Site
We’re currently on the site with our 4 children.. I have to say that this is a brilliant site made 10 times better because the wardens are so good, super friendly helpful, great to talk to and run the place like clockwork. The site is very well kept and the Minehead town, harbour and beach are all really nice as well. The sea so far had been lovely and great for young families as it’s been very calm and has a nice slow gradient so kids feel safe and don’t go out of there depth. All in all a super site I recommend for all types of family, keep up the great work wardens. Many thanks from the Parry’s

Top notch

Minehead Caravan Club Site
This was my first few days on my own having picked up a new van so I had lots of questions . Zoe was most helpful , friendly and welcoming ( I think my gorgeous whippet helped!) The site is immaculate with spotless facilities and lovely planting everywhere. There is plenty of space on each pitch and it was lovely and quiet. Its a 20 minute walk to the beach and there is loads to do in the area. I will definitely be back to this well run site

Great Site, wonderful location

Minehead Caravan Club Site
Attended here in June, for a week. Weather was kind, so that was a bonus. We love this site, as it has everything we love about Motorhoming - great site & facilities, great location for getting around, be it walking, cycling, easy to catch local transport, and many places to visit. We walked via the back lane route to Dunster, and back again along the A39. We walked from Minehead across the moor on the SW Coastal path to Porlock, which is a great walk on a nice day - we caught the bus back to Minehead. On another day, we cycled to Minehead, taking in the Harbour, sea front, then onto Dunster Beach, where we stopped for tea (had a great tuck shop there). We cycled then from Dunster Beach on the walking/cycle path to Blue Anchor. This path runs out before you reach Blue Anchor - you could walk your bikes the short distance into Blue Anchor, as we've done before, but we turned around, and cycled into Dunster village. From the village, we took the back lane route back to the site - a really nice cycle ride. On another day, we took the open top double decker bus to Lynmouth/Lynmouth - which was a great day out. Good fun going up Porlock Hill & down Countisbury Hill (and vice versa) on a double decker bus !! We had a lovely Thai meal at the Queens Head Minehead on one of the evenings - which we would recommend. The wardens were wonderful - helpful, friendly & accommodating. Everything was clean and well kept. The only issue we had (albeit minor), whilst setting up our awning, was the hardness of the hardstanding pitch, which was like concrete - think I broke around 5 or so pegs ! We love this site, and the area, and always look forward to visiting there. Fingers crossed, back again in December.

Frequent Visitor

Minehead Caravan Club Site
Most of our trips are to CL sites, however Minehead CAMC is the exception. It has a great layout, is easy stroll into the interesting town of Minehead wit its harbour and old town area (it's not all about Butlins!). The walking from the site is exceptional and it is only a short car drive to the wilds of Exmoor. The site wardens are very friendly and facilities are well maintained. We visit at least once a year and you can see the numerous walks we have done in the are on my blog site https://twodogsandanawning.co.uk/site/minehead-camc/

Don't Assume Check

Minehead Caravan Club Site
I agree wholeheartedly with the previous reviewer regarding location to town and the great wardens. We had never visited Minehead before and had a pre-conceived view of what the town would be like. Anyway we thought we'd have a look for a couple of days. Well what a surprise, great little town, wonderful harbour and just a tad further up the coast we saw a dolphin. Some lovely little cafes, and restaurants along with what looked like good pubs (never tried one). We will be going back for a longer stay. The only drawback is the A39. Not so much a road more a track, not good with my Bailey's big ears (wing mirrors).
