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.

Great location only minutes drive from Minehead but secluded and quiet.

This review is for Minehead

Great location only minutes drive from Minehead but secluded and quiet. Great views over the sea and hills. Good facilities always clean and tidy. Even grass looked clean and tidy :) Campsite is located on a hill just outside Minehead cycling down is a pleasure, a little effort :) must be put into going back though. But I was the most impressed by the warm and friendly welcome and the way Diane and Stacy were looking after us. We will be back there definitely and if anyone asks where to camp in that area, that's where I will be sending them.

What do I mean by "proper campsite"? When I see the word campsite, I imagine a field with people camping, no doubt conditioned by having grown up in The Scouts and my wife and I having camped in most ways imaginable. The Minehead site is exactly that, but, unlike Scouts or Guides, you don't have to dig a toilet pit, nor gather firewood. There are no ranks of vans, nor lines of tents, but a sloping field with some good hard standings for campervan. There are trees, hedges, a very clean toilet block and stunning views. Step out of the gate and you are in open countryside, with paths and bridleways, to West, East and South (North would land you in the Bristol Channel). It's a good hike to Porlock or an easier walk downhill into Minehead (and you can work off lunch walking back up the hill). If you have limited mobility taxis come to the site, there's no bus. The site information recommends studying the route and using their directions. That is essential, the route isn't difficult, but has some sharp, narrowing bends, which is why caravans aren't allowed. If you use SatNav, no matter how good you think it is, it will try and take you the wrong way - really. As you approach Minehead, put a tea cosy over the SatNav and get out the site directions. Once you find Blenheim Rd, off The Parade, then turn into Martlett Road, it's straightforward (well it's forward anyway: climbing uphill, round the occasional hairpin, it's certainly not straight). The staff were friendly, welcoming and always working to keep the site in great condition, thank you.

Great area to visit with lots to do, especially good is the Fleet Air Museum and Haynes Car Museum. Taunton is a must for shopping as is Clark Villiage and Cribs Causeway.
