I was touring the area so only stayed one night at this site. The large camping field is slightly sloped but the 2 electric points are along the fence at the bottom of the field. Therefore those who want hook up have to congregate in that area. The water point is in one corner & not well signposted. A kindly lady from a caravan that was already pitched, showed me where the bins, cdp & loo were. As they were not immediately adjacent to the field, through a tunnel in a hedge & not signed in anyway, I don't think I would have found them very easily on my own. The toilet was uncared for, so I suggest keeping to your own facilities.
This is a nice site with potential. It's peaceful enough and located centrally for some interesting places. For me it needs more water points. I had to walk quite a distance to the 1 point for water. The chemical disposal and waste bins are even further away. The main house is let it seems so be aware there can be some late night noise from partying there. Neal is the chap who looks after the site as the owner lives in London it seems. I found Neal to be friendly and helpful. A bit of blue pipe, some more taps and it would be better. Not a site for when it rains heavy though.
This is my second review of this site, the first time I said we would return...and we did!! We had been e-mailed by the owner saying the site was wet after recent rain, but with 4WD we should be ok. As it happens the site was fine, the rain stopped and the field dried out during our stay. We were on our own (again....maybe it's me?) for most of the time. The site manager greeted us on arrival and was helpful and friendly, we didn't see him again until the morning of our departure. The last time I said there wasn't a safe walk to the all-day pub (The White Horse), but we managed to find one....turn left out of the site, first left in the village and a couple more left turns and it will take about 20 mins along a very quiet road. Plenty of walks, easy access to Exmoor and the coast, nice quiet site, what more could you want?
Site only had gravelled entrance through field gate. Stopped 10 meters into field to check ground as hookup was lower part of site only to see van sinking into ground. Had to phone owner who kindly organised a farmer to pull us out the field with his tractor. Can’t pass any comment of facilities as we could not stay.
We were a little disappointed as we had been trying to contact the owner to book in but never got her to answer nor did we get a call back. As it was September we hoped the site would have room and continued to Washford, then onto the very narrow road towards Roadwater. We overshot the entrance but its probably as well as the gateway is awkward and best approached from the opposite direction when towing. Make sure you know how to reverse just in case. The phone number for Neal is pinned to the gate so we called him and within minutes he was there explaining the number in the site book is for the owner who lives in London (Very Strange) In view of the fact we hadn't booked Neal was most welcoming, providing us help to site the van and gave us loads of site and local information. The site is spacious with adequate facilitates but the main thing is the peace and quiet. We do a lot of touring expecting only to stay a couple of nights but stayed longer than expected pinned down by storms Ali and Helene. But it was no hardship sitting in a lovely valley the gales barely affected the site or us. Having to stay nearly a week until the winds subsided we weren't short of things to do or see, with the lovely coast and Exmoor playing a big part and nearby Cleeve Abbey is well worth a visit, far much more there than first appears. There is no need to go to larger towns as the local shop which opens early and closes late has almost everything you could need at very reasonable prices and a few hundred yards further on is a garage selling fuel at prices to beat most of the main road garages. Overall I would recommend this site to anyone seeking peace and quiet and yes if we go back that way again of course we would go there again but please put Neal's phone number in the Club Site book.
My wife and I found the site to be very well maintained and have all the necessary requirements , although there is a road passing on one boundary the traffic is light , the WC is rural but very clean and adequate and lovely walks for the dog , on arriving my electric did not work , a quick phone call and Neal was there in a flash ,as it turned out it was my caravan causing the problem, the little village shop stocks everything and most of it is local produce and is only a couple of minutes away .Cleeve Abbey just up the road is a must and you seem to be in the middle of a lot of places and things to visit, we will definitely be back .
Phoned ahead to make a booking and left ansaphone message ( no prob), on arrival just pitched up and hoped all was ok. Very casually a man wandered past watering newly planted trees, no distant greeting , no nothing. I made the first opening conversation asking if he was the owner and was it ok we pitched and this pitch not prebooked for someone “ No I am just a minion” said the man. I dunno, have you booked?” .... no i replied but i left a message, “well it should be ok if “ She” said it was ok” ..... I only left a message so “ she” has not yet confirmed anything I replied. Is “she” your wife ? .... i asked ....”God no, i told you I am just a minion the owner she lives in London”......no sooner that said when he Barked at my partner...”NO! NO!” .... she was going to tie the dogs with dog cables to the fence... ok its not best practice but he could have been more polite. My partner had just arrived from overseas and asked me “ Is everyone this unfriendly here and does he not realise we are the customer?”. It rather put a dampener on our two night stay altho we never saw him again until time to check out and pay when to be fair he was quite reasonable. All that said its a nice little site, quiet, and contrary to prev review the water is closeby next to the pitches. MUST visit Cleeve Abbey if you stay , a mile away and fab! Oh another general gripe to App/Web mgers.... prices stated on these is NOT the price we end up paying! This site says online “ Pitch and all occup £11”. Very attractive, until you get there and theres a note on the gate saying its £15!!! Too late by then, we are here. Please CC and Site Owners work harder to update the online content... its the future and where more of your bookings will come. Other than “pricing”, the App is very good.
The site is easy to find and access is straightforward. The approach road is quite narrow, but with plenty of passing places. We were the only van on site for the whole stay, which was surprising. The site is a large flat field, with electric points along the fence. There is a tap in the field and the chemical disposal and recycling is by the main house. We went to find the owner/manager to pay and didn't see anyone else all week - perfect for an unsocial old fart like me!! There are 2 pubs within reach, but the only one that can safely be reached by foot (The Valiant Soldier - turn left out of the site and it's about 0.75 miles away) isn't open all day. Plenty of walks around and within easy reach of Minehead, Watchet, Blue Anchor etc. Had fun watching the woodpeckers, small birds and pheasants. Would definitely return.
The site is a large grass field, with the hookups arranged in a line at the bottom. It's a very quiet location on the edge of a very small village with no facilities. There is a pub and a small village shop in the next village about 10 minutes walk away, and supermarkets in Minehead. Although the road up to the site is quite narrow there are suitable passing places and not a great deal of traffic. The drinking water tap is on one of the house outbuildings so if you are at the 'wrong' end of the field you would have to pull the Aquaroll a long way which may be an issue if you have limited mobility.
