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.

We had a lovely time at the Minehead site.

This review is for Minehead

We had a lovely time at the Minehead site. This started with a courtesy call from the site staff in the afternoon to see how our journey was going as it was a busy Bank Holiday Friday! The site was clean, well kept and in a great location for country and coastal walks. It was about a two mile walk into Minehead along a wooded path from the site, great for dog walks - our working cocker spaniel loved it! However, as the site is situated at a high point, it's very hilly to access so you need to be moderately fit. We will be visiting again at some point to walk and cycle more of the SW coastal path.

This review is for Minehead

On our arrival we were meet by a very friendly member of staff, Keith, what a breath of fresh air this man is, friendly helpful nothing is to much for him,he is the sort of manager you would find on sites years ago whose soul purpose was to put the campers first, good sense of humour,obliging,and very helpful, he was there if you needed him,and he remembered every bodies name, true it is a small site but that is a plus,being addressed by your first name,Gwen and I will be visiting this site again, and we have voted it amongst one of our favourite sites,the site is maintained to a very high standard, both Keith and his assistant keep every thing neat and tidy, a big well done to you both.having said all that,the views from the site are breathtaking, the walks endless and sometimes steep but with woodland walks, and sea views from the site what more could you ask for, a gem of a site.
