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.

We were fortunate to have stayed here in glorious weather this June.

This review is for Minehead

We were fortunate to have stayed here in glorious weather this June. We have never been to this area before and were stunned at how lovely it is. Exmoor is outside the gates and there are lots of footpaths making it very accessible. We would also recommend a walk along the coastal path the views are lovely, take a picnic. The site itself is well looked after by Tracy and Di who were very welcoming and helpful. We would like to come here again to explore some more of Somerset.

This review is for Minehead

The site is outside of but close enough to the town by car but is a steep descent and climb on foot. It is a very peaceful spot overlooking the bay. Di and Tracey were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Look forward to revisiting.

This review is for Minehead

i only intended staying for one night,but loved it so much that i stayed a week. on hot days i had lovely cool walks through woodlands at rear of site. and then at front of site open heath land. a half hours walk to minehead via wooded paths. The site has breathtaking views across the bay to south wales ,the facilities are spotless.But most of all was the friendliness of di and tracy,who are a credit to there employers
