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 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.

We stayed on a bad windy weather night which spoilt the stay. Facilities ok, grass well cut and easily accessible from Minehead. About 10mins drive from a big Tesco / Morrisons. Easy to eat in the town centre.

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.
