The surrounding area

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.

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.

This review is for Minehead

We enjoyed our stay, it was easy to walk from the site onto Exmoor and the coast path and into Minehead. The SWR railway provides a useful link to explore further afield and the coast path. Very relaxed site, with no caravans. The walk to Minehead took only 30minutes downhill, but there were plenty of other ways back to the site, with more gentle climbs. Loads of cafes and restaurants in Minehead. Park Walks in Minehead was particularly attractive (and allowed dogs) and there is a short way back to the campsite from there.

This review is for Minehead

I stayed here in a simple two-man pop-up tent on my own for a week, my first experience of a club site. I was greeted on arrival (by taxi, if you're planning on walking up after a long day with baggage I highly suggest a re-think, more later) and given the lowdown on the site, as well as a quick bit of information regarding local walking routes. There's a customer information room accessible 24/7 with maps, leaflets for local attractions, bus timetables, a payphone, and a folder with takeaway menus. The main building has a small shop which packs a surprising amount of stock in, from food essentials to camping equipment and even ice cream. You can also grab a hot drink here for a very reasonable pound. The view from the site is simply breathtaking. You can see all the way across Minehead and across the coast to Weston-Super-Mare and even Hinkley Point nuclear power station, and on clear days across to South Wales and Cardiff. Words don't really do the view justice, it really needs to be seen to be believed. The site has all the facilities you'd expect, with toilets, showers, dishwashing, laundry, and drinking water all available in various parts. These were all clean and well-maintained. As far as the pitch went there are plenty, with some boasting the view I described above and others in perfect places to keep tents sheltered and out of the wind. On a few nights the wind was howling through the trees but my tent was barely moving, definitely nice and a welcome relief considering the site is high up on a hill. In my time here I met three members of staff and I have to say every single one was polite, friendly, happy to chat, and knowledgeable about the local area and what to see and do. I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to a club site and will definitely return again!

Friendly welcome. Stunning view. Ground not level so chocks a definite.

This review is for Minehead

Friendly welcome. Stunning view. Ground not level so chocks a definite. Staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities clean. Drive into site was a bit difficult as we used sat nav that took us through the old village which was very narrow. Plenty to do in Minehead itself. Lovely walks around site though could be a bit challenging for those with walking difficulties. Nice peaceful break. Already planning to go back next year.

We had a great stay at this site. The view over the bay are wonderful. Very friendly and helpful site staff. Highly recommended. The slight slope was a little tricky to manage with the trailer tent but this could be solved with blocks.
