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.

Nice Site

We had a nice time at this site.The Facilities were spotless. The wardens were not nasty but we’re not overly friendly which I would say is unusual for club sites.It wouldn’t put me off going back but it was a bit different from the norm.Covid procedures were good although I prefer the wristbands in the Milton solution instead of the wristbands on the hook. What I don’t understand is why do men get less in numbers in the facilities than women?... it should be even and no differences made. Chippy was ok ,but Chinese was Brilliant but you should order your Chinese before you go to shop on the phone as it seems to be quicker and you don’t have to wait in a queue outside. Nice coop all within a few minutes walk.

Gold Standard wardens

Others have said all that is to be said about this peaceful site and the town itself.I would like to comment on the wardens. It was such a pleasant change to find 2 people without the all-too-common attitude that is found on some sites.They run the site really well and are friendly and helpful.They seem to recognise the fact that we are all in the same club,enjoying the same pastime. I know it's a demanding job and these wardens have got the authority / helpfulness balance right. Thank you both.

Nice small site

A small site set on two levels. Mostly surrounded by tall trees so pick your pitch carefully if you want to maximise the sun. Just off the main road but the road noise was hardly noticeable. Lovely walk up through the woods to Dunster but it's a bit tough at the start, also a nice level walk along the coast path to the cafe at Blue Anchor and a taxi back (£11). Minehead itself is a bit 'tired' and doesn't really have much to recommend it, apart from the great chippy next to the co-op just along from the site. Couldn't find a decent pub nearby. Covid rules here were fine, not intrusive and those that are worried about it would no doubt feel safe. Having two separate individual toilets was great as it meant you didn't have to wait to use the loo whilst two people were taking showers.

1st Trip since covid-19

I must say I was very impressed with the way this site has adapted to make it covid safe. I found it to be well organised and the system seemed to work well. Apart from that it was great with plenty of places to visit.
