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.

I really love this campsite. With Stunning views and walks through the woods down to Minehead.

This review is for Minehead

I really love this campsite. With Stunning views and walks through the woods down to Minehead.Only takes about 20-30 minutes and if you like walking you will enjoy the STEEP hill climb to make your children sleep. If you Have a Dog,In Minehead you have a pub called the Hairy Dog,with Free childrens play area and Dogs are allowed in the bar and also out the back in the children's play area. The road to the campsite is a dead end into the National park.You can walk it from here. Absolutely Stunning,if you fancy a walk down to Selworthy,which is a National park walk.It leads down to a beautiful little village tea rooms.Well worth the visit and then you could walk half a mile more to Bossington beach to a stunning river that the children can play in safely.And the beach is just down the road. The paths will lead back up so you can climb North Hills back to your campsite. In Minehead you have a Steam train that will take you to different locations that are well worth a visit,worth googling to find more information about. I can not recommend this place enough.Well worth a VERY QUIET VISIT.

The site is in a great location, the view of Minehead is lovely.

This review is for Minehead

The site is in a great location, the view of Minehead is lovely. Pitches are pretty much all on a slope of some angle. The site was very busy the weekend we arrived so pitches were more regimented than normal. You can walk into town either via forest path (steep and rocky) or down the road which is also steep. Facilities are ok, toilets clean and showers have adjustable heat setting. Biggest issue seems to be water pressure in washing up area, most nights no hot water whatsoever so had to get bucket from toilet block where it was fine. One day no water at all but the site managers fixed this very quickly and communicated the problems to everyone so that showers etc didn't get used whilst system refilled. Yes I would come to this site again just needs a little tlc to facilities block.

Lovely sunny break in this small, secluded site with stunning views of Minehead.

This review is for Minehead

Lovely sunny break in this small, secluded site with stunning views of Minehead. Graham and John keep a relaxed, quiet feel to this clean and cheerful, flowery site. Not a spanking new facility block but kept scrupulously clean with nice homely touches. Would recommend to mature couples, singles who enjoy a quiet pitch with nature, Exmoor, and the view from top of the hill are the star. Quiet and secluded - enjoyable stay. You can walk into Minehead a 20min walk, steep on way back but ok for those fit enough. Or you can get a taxi. A local shop van comes each morning to site, or large supermarkets/shops are found in the town. Watch the stars at night and look down towards the sea and lights of the Town. National Trust at Dunster nearby and drive to Selworthy good place to getaway from home/work and the pace of modern life.

This review is for Minehead

A lovely well maintained site but let down by the facilities and I was very concerned by the potentially dangerous sign in the male toilet block, I did complain about it but was ignored. Nevertheless it's definitely a site to spend time at. Minehead is a nice town and vastly improved since the last time I stayed here (a long time ago). There is a nice walk through the woods to the town. Lynton and Lynmouth and Woody bay railway station not far away. Butlin's in Minehead. But the magnificent Exmoor is on the doorstep.
