"Look out to sea from our campsite on this Somerset hillside."
Close to the beautiful sandy beaches of the Exmoor Heritage Coast and the wilderness of the Exmoor National Park, our Club Site at Minehead has wonderful sea views. The lovely location unfortunately makes it unsuitable for caravans.
Age concession rates are available all year excluding the summer high season period between 23 July to 1 September inclusive.

A beautifully kept site in a tranquil location
with stunning views over the bay and across the Bristol Channel to South Wales. An excellent centre for us to enjoy the wildlife,
the moorland and the picturesque villages. - Mr and Mrs Rose

Just spent a lovely bank holiday weekend here, friendly welcoming staff and really good walks. We purchased a walking booklet from reception and did the 4 hour one which was really good. Also only a short walk into minehead and beautiful views from the campsite. Only tip is to approach campsite from the town and follow St michaels road, otherwise you will get stuck on the very very narrow lanes and have to reverse all the way back!

What a fantastic place,so friendly and yet had everything for a peaceful break. quiet time from 11pm to 7am gave us a great time to spend quality time with the teenagers playing games. Great place overlooking minehead but a long,steep hill through woodland to get into town,definitely taxi back up!! But they only charge around Â£5 from town centre so was well worth it. will be returning time and time again,thank you Pete and Yvonne Ps don't take notice of sat nav as it takes you through very narrow road not suitable for motor homes, I nearly took the side out of the van.

We have been to this site a number of times over the past few years and have always enjoyed our visits.
Thsi year was no exception and the new holiday management team have done a number of things to enhance the site further.
Most pitches do have some kind of slope but this should not put off anyone contemplating a stay here.
We have always enjoyed a warm welcome and look forward to further holidays here in the future.

Amazing site for scenery and walking. The facilities are dated and really need up dating but the wardens do a fantastic job of keeping them clean. Really peaceful, absolutely stunning. Can't wait to return

What a fantastic place,so friendly and yet had everything for a peaceful break. Not ideal for families with older children as no night entertainment and quiet time from 11pm to 7am.

will be returning time and time again,thank you Pete and Yvonne
Ps don't take notice of sat nav as it takes you through very narrow road not suitable for camper homes or caravans.

The best club site I've stayed at - because of the spacious lay out, lack of caravans or large motorhomes ( due to steep access), open views to the sea, sense of "being away from it all" and trees and bushes dotted around . Also very important - the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and excellent overall cleanliness. We enjoyed driving on along the coastal hills, seeing the wild ponies, visiting local seaside villages and harbours (especially Porlock Weir) and found any shopping we needed in Minehead itself.

Great site in a stunning location. Visited earlier this month with my daughter (10). Facilities tidy and spotless. Wardens (Pete & Yvonne) couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Second night the weather became appalling and it was clear the next morning that we had to move the tent because we'd pitched in a wind tunnel. One trip to the office and we could move to whichever pitch we fancied and we had three volunteers to help walk the tent across to the new pitch. Lovely walk down into Minehead and cheap taxi ride back up the hill! No trouble entertaining my daughter despite the poor weather. Butlins isnt cheap but great water park. West Somerset Railway worth a trip for the nostalgic. Looking forward to revisiting when the weather is better to start exploring the beaches.

What a wonderful campsite! Please don't be put off by the description of the route it's no where near as scary as the ccc makes it sound it's just a country lane we have a 6.3m motorhome and managed no problems and it is so worth it when you get there. Pete and Yvonne offer a warm welcome and clean facilities. The location is fantastic only a 25 min walk through lovely woods and a gorgeous village or head in the other direction for the sw coast path complete with wild exmoor ponies!
A peaceful and well maintained site, with excellent facilities, ran by friedly and helpful staff.
Nothing can beat the views from this hill top location, on the edge of Dartmoor. Within easy reach of attractions like Minehead and Dunster Castle, and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.
DATE STAYED: June 2010
This season's new site managers, Peter and Yvonne, are making a huge effort to improve the site (including refurbished showers and cutting back shrubbery); the place is spotless.
An ideal base for walking and a veritable haven for birdwatchers. Even if you don't want to 'haul back up the hill' from Minehead, there are enough walks over the North Hill ridge and the surroundings to keep you busy for several days.

This is a site that would interest those who enjoy wildlife, a myriad of walks, tranquility and fantastic encounters with wild ponies, deer and bird life. The site has a panoramic view of the sea, hills woodland and the town nestled below. The site managers, Peter and Yvonne Foster, are welcoming and very helpful. It is likely to be a memorable break!
We loved this site, just what we were looking for. Very quiet. Managers new only been here three weeks but you can already see they are making improvements. Showers and toilets spotless. We are not memebers but may now join. Thankyou Pete and Ynonne.

what a great site great walks,but a long walk into mine head. our 4 boys had a great time and loved going on walks over the moors.
the site was clean and the staff are great we went fore 2 days and stayed for a week.. but no pub nearby..
we are going there this year even if it rains again 5/5 for this site....
DATE STAYED: August 2011
Camped with out 17 yr old for 9 days in August this year and had a lovely time. Site is great location for walking and exploring Somerset coast.
The site slopes yes but not so it is impossible to pitch or get comfortable - and there isn't much flat land on Exmoor!
As said elsewher the facilities are overdue an overhaul but still serviceable and clean.
There are two areas, one more suitable to families but no play area so if you have hyperactive kids be warned :)
Wardens were great, friendly and helpful.
Would be a great base for walkers, mountainbikers or more leaisurely explorers and we will be using again.
SUITABLE FOR: Active break,Peaceful break,Younger couples
Very friendly staff. facilities are very dated and need modernising but kept very clean.
The walk to Minehead is all downhill but means a steep return. Lots of walks from the site with the Exmoor ponies close by.
recommend for relaxing, cycling and walking

After a week in Butlins, we were wanting a peaceful following week.
The write up suggested this.
All was lovely, until kids woke up...
Nice views, through the trees...
The toilet block won the award for 'BEST' in 2007, probably when it was first built/refurbished, certainly wouldnt be in top 150 now...
Great starting point for walks/hikes.
Minehead, is 30mins walk away, down a 25% hill.
The road is not welcoming. Very Narrow, and winding.
Very friendly staff, cannot fault them.
SUITABLE FOR: Families,Older couples,Active break,Younger couples
Lovely peaceful site. Assistant was very helpful. Site is located up a long steep hill and it is a sloping site but views down to Minehead are wonderful. It is a 20/30 minute walk down to town - we went via the footpath in the woods but it is steep and bumpy so care is needed and took a taxi back up (around Â£5)
The toilet/shower block does need updating as it is looking tired but it was clean.
Hope to revisit again another year
Sadly it must be said that, without doubt, this is the worst CCC site we have ever used. Lovely location overlooking the coast, very quiet with well drained grass pitches. However the ground is very stoney (rock pegs required) and virtually all the pitches for tents are sloping (not 'some' as described in the club's own description).
The toilet facilities were the real issue for us as a family. Very old with mould in the shower cubicles, evidence of penetrating damp on the walls, cobweb encrusted lighting and loose and missing toilet seats.
The area has plenty to offer in the way of coastal and moorland walking but dog owners beware, ticks are everywhere and you will need to check your pet daily.
Prevention is better than cure so best apply Frontline (or a simular flea/tick application) before visiting.
DATE STAYED: July 2011
A wonderful location and very peaceful. Contrary to some reviews we found the facilities spotlessly clean with lovely hot water. Would thoroughly recommend it to our friends and family and will be back.
DATE STAYED: June 2011
We planned to stay for just 3 nights and ended up staying for 10. We are a couple in our twenties, our first time camping and we really enjoyed it. We were made to feel welcome and the views from the site were spectacular. We had to travel into Minehead via car... There was a possible foot path but the hill was quite steep and with the weather not being 100% we decided against it. The site itself was well maintained, the toilets and showers were always clean. We would recommend this site and will be staying again in the future. :-)

This site is located in a truly peaceful but elevated position overlooking Minehead and the coast. Picturesque walks can be accessed directly from the site onto the coastal footpath with Minehead town just a short walk away via Moor Woods. West Somerset Steam Railway is a must for all steam enthusiasts with the mediaeval village of Dunster closeby. A very warm welcome was given by the wardens but unfortunately both male/female toilet/shower blocks were in a very poor state of cleanliness. Shower curtains were filthy and needed replacing. A snail had made his home on the back of the shower door my wife used. Obviously not adequately cleaned daily as it remained for the duration of our stay! The mens' toilet smelt awful and I was amazed and astonished to see dog owners exercising their dogs on the campsite grass where campers pitched their tents/motorhomes. C'mon there were woods only a few yards away. These negatives should be addressed as the site deserves 5* status for its tranquillity and location.

When we arrived the wardens were having a heated debate out the back of the reception and didn't answer our doorbell ringing for sometime, didn't help it was pooring with rain at the time.
The bathrooms and washing up facilities were dirty, complete with spiders, cobwebs and dead flies.
The site is on really bad slopes and we found ourselves having to stay on a pitch that was completely unappropriate for a tent. To the point it felt like you were sleeping on the edge of a cliff every night.
Wardens were friendly enough but its obvious they weren't doing any work to maintain the site or keep it even vaguely clean.
DATE STAYED: August 2010
I've been on this site a couple of times due to the area as very easy to start walks from. Only thing i can say is the shower block, i'm sure when cleaning it wouldn't hurt to remove the spinders an webs. To think that the shower block is closed for a couple of hrs for cleaning, yet when reopened it doesn't look any differant.Is a shame as it lets this site down as my son an daughter wont shower while there :(
Maybe the block should be knocked down an rebuilt as i'm sure a few more showers wouldn't go a miss either.
But all an all i did enjoy my camping trip there.

This is the site that we return to time and time again, a little bit of magic that we perhaps should keep secret! no razmataz, just good basic facilities. Amazing walks and veiws on the doorstep, straight out of the gate and onto Exmoor,wild ponies at the gate, or very near but you have to go and look and deer too if you are patient.Walk down to the town through woods on the coastal path, the town is always good, great butcher and fishmonger there then get a taxi back up the hill.Try the Exmoor safari for an interesting trip! or get the steam train or open top bus. Cream teas at Selworthy, horse riding on the moor, Tarr steps (Romans)Dunster and the Castle is lovely..... I could go on and on, but just sitting on site is so peacefull. Don't all come it will get too busy!
There is a dispute between management about opening hours for laundry facilities for campers which meant we cancelled a day out to do laundry only to find out the facilities are available in the evening. Showers and toilets floors were cleaned daily but not very good standard. Excellent location near coast and moors.
