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.

Although the route to the campsite is a little challenging along very narrow roads through Minehead, it is well worth the journey. We were warmly welcomed to this very beautifully located campsite. The facilities were clean and the campsite was very peaceful and quiet. There are plenty of lovely walks in the area and Minehead is an hour's (slow) walk down the hill (take a taxi back if the road is too steep). Some of the pitches are on sloping ground.

Di and Tracy were very welcoming on arrival. The site is immaculate. They have clearly worked hard to get it to and maintain it at this standard. We had a good laugh with them too. A credit to the club! We found the site easy to find and the roads leading to were tight, but worth the effort. This is a brilliant site to visit if you want to get away from it and stretch your legs. It's easy enough to walk into Minehead and find the SW Coast path start point. We didn't have enough time to explore more but will return as Porlock looks a village that needs a visit on foot, not passing through on the bus... Toilets, showers, washing up etc all as you'd want to find them. Ground care all above standard. It is out of town, which is part of the attraction. You will need to be moderately fit to walk down to Minehead and pretty fit to walk back up. Ask for taxi details if you leave on foot. It's definitely one that we'll be going back to...

Had a good couple of nights in this motor home only site. The site is perfectly position and run very well, with a perfect view of the sea and an easy walk to the town centre. A major flaw with the site is that some of the hard standings are not level, not just a one block levelling exercise but unless you have extra chocks and a strong clutch you will have to live on a slope. Which the fridge does not like, perhaps this winter our club could find a man with a JCB to scrape the hard standings level. As this is a motor home only site we can't level as easy as a caravan so a bit of effort to level the pitches would seem a necessary project.
