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.

Worth Noting

Our Minehead campsite is unable to accept Caravans. Some pitches are sloping and chocks will be required.

Great area to visit with lots to do, especially good is the Fleet Air Museum and Haynes Car Museum. Taunton is a must for shopping as is Clark Villiage and Cribs Causeway.

This review is for Minehead

Lovely friendly welcome from the site managers, Di and Tracey who do a great job keeping the site tidy. Very peaceful site with great views over Minehead and the coast. Good location to explore from, we had a day out on the Steam train, a trip into Lynton and Lynmouth and a visit to Dunster Castle. Good dog walks just beyond the campsite gates but Minehead is easier in a car unless you particularly like walking up hills Will definitely use this site again.

This site is ideal for walkers, avid cyclists and generally anyone looking for a tranquil setting to relax in once you have explored the amazing scenery around you. Close enough to Minehead for easy access to shops, caf�s, pubs, steam train trips. We would happily use this site again.
