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.

We really needed chocks as most pitches are sloping. There were several reviews about the showers and toilets that almost stopped us from going to this site. We are so pleased we did go. The shower block is dated, but we found it clean and as campers we do not need or expect luxury.
This site gives you access to many walks, the Somerset Steam Railway and Dunster Castle.

A wonderful situation, and a charming campsite. We walked into Minehead (and back) from the site. Minehead has a pleasant promenade walk, a little harbour, a sandy beach, and shops, cafes and supermarkets. The West Somerset Steam Railway is excellent. The beautiful Exmoor National park is on the doorstep. The site, though very lovely, would benefit from some improvements to the hard standing pitches, and the washroom water supply.
