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.

A very peaceful site with spacious pitches.

This review is for Minehead

A very peaceful site with spacious pitches. The facilities were well-maintained and sufficient for the time we were there. Half-hour walk down steep track, then roads to town. Hard uphill return, but taxis are available in Minehead. Friendly staff.

We spent the August bank holiday weekend here. A pleasant, quiet site.

This review is for Minehead

We spent the August bank holiday weekend here. A pleasant, quiet site. No ball games and no play area for children on site but plenty of facilities off the site in Minehead and surrounding areas. The site is sloping, there's no doubt about it but the staff, who are very helpful, will sort you out with the best pitch for your unit. A fairly steep drive up to the campsite but don't be put off, a lovely welcome awaits you!
