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.

My late wife and I have visited this site many times over the past twenty or so years and were always drawn back by its peace and seclusion. We regarded this area of Exmoor as a 'little bit of heaven on earth'.
When my wife died four years ago, I thought I would never visit this site again -having lost confidence in driving on my own and seeing no point in camping alone. It was not until June of this year that I found the confidence to take the motorhome away, and it was the lure of coming back to this site and area, that we loved so much, which provided the incentive.
The site may be short on amenities but this is compensated for by the superb natural environment which is immediately accessible from the site, something which the people who come here regularly appreciate.
I do not believe that the Club realises what a special site this is : in my opinion (and I suspect in the opinion of others if they were asked) this is the Jewel in the Club's crown, and would be sorely missed if it was ever given up by the Club.
I am looking forward to continuing to return here for as long as I am able to drive.

A single night stop for my young son and I (we live not too far away and my wife had to work) as a boys trip. Weather was excellent and the views from the site are fantastic. Whilst the facilities are a little dated they are immaculate and some of the cleanest i have found of any club site. Staff really friendly, nice pitches all in all a lovely site and has to be among the best of the club. I can see why caravans aren't allowed and I'm sure a motorhome of above small/medium size would also struggle as the road there is absolutely not suitable for a big motorhome or anything towing. Hence we took our tent. Will absolutely go again. I would also consider the weather ahead of a visit, it was perfect when we went but the benefit of the position that gives such excellent views could also mean that if it was windy and wet you might really have to baton down the hatches!
