Look out to sea from our campsite on this Somerset hillside.

Our Minehead Club campsite lies just outside the stunning Exmoor National Park, close to the beaches of the Exmoor Heritage Coast and a mile-and-a-half from the Minehead, Somerset’s largest seaside resort.

Not only does this campsite enjoy a prime coastal location in a peaceful setting, its views over-looking the Bristol channel, woodland and the town are second to none. A spacious site, Minehead has 60 pitches including some serviced pitches and good central site facilities.

There are lovely walks from the site including a lovely wooded walk into Minehead centre. Minehead is also the starting point for the South West Coast Path, a long-distance trail that follows the coast to Poole. The town is also the terminus of the West Somerset Steam Railway, which travels through 20 miles of stunning coastal and countryside scenery.

South of the campsite, Wimbleball Reservoir offers sailing, canoeing and wind surfing – launch your own craft or hire from the lake’s activity centre. Anglers have been known to catch rainbow trout here. You can fish from the banks or hire a boat. There is nine-mile walking and cycling track around the lake too.

To find out more about Exmoor National Park, there’s a visitor centre at Dunster. The medieval town is also home to a castle and a working water mill.

Access and SatNav Advice

Although access to the Site from Minehead town centre (as shown on map) is very steep and twisting, we do not advise any other route as alternative lane is too narrow. Please Do Not Use SatNav please follow map directions ONLY.

Compared to our usual experience of club sites this was below standard.

This review is for Minehead

Compared to our usual experience of club sites this was below standard. The shower block needs an upgrade and with only one chem disposal, no running water to clean was a problem. Flower beds and grounds would benefit from weeding etc. The assistant should also make himself aware of local accesses and facilities instead of saying ' never done it myself '.

This review is for Minehead

The site is surrounded with trees and hedgerows that are being well looked after by the site manager Keith and his assistant John. They are making a fantastic effort to clear some bushes to give such a much better view of Exmoor and down to Minehead. The facilities are always kept clean and fresh. Keith made everyone feel so welcome and is a credit to The Camping and Caravanning Club. If you like to buy local produce you cant go wrong than to visit 'Stuart Lowen' butcher and seller of lots of all local products. We also found a great Take-Away in Minehead 'The Cod 'N' Wok in Summerland Road for Oriental food and Fish + Chips. We had such a great two week break and would recommend this site to anyone. The site was slightly hill, but I have limited mobility and managed the slopes and terrain. Well run site with a great welcome from Keith and John.
