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.
If you'd like to go glamping then Minehead Ready Camp is the perfect choice. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Club Site Wi-fi
This lovely site has been the favourite of my late wife and myself for many years. Sadly, over the past few years, it has been neglected by the Club. Many of the hard standings are so unlevel that even chocks cannot correct, and the site access tracks have become very rough and uneven. The Club obviously does not appreciate what a gem it possesses in this site!

we stayed at on a busy weekend and the site felt rather cramped. More pitches needed on levelled out ground as many people were commenting on sliding down the hill at night! Also it is not possible to walk your dog out of the front entrance due to cattle grid. Could a side gate be fitted? Please provide 13 amp sockets in wash areas as many commercial sites now do. Fixed hair dryers not up to the job and no where to plug in straighteners
