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.

This was our second choice of site for the weekend as the first choice was full - we are glad it was. The CCC at Minehead is in a great location - the access is steep and narrow but we were in a tag axle motorhome and it is OK. Views from the site are lovely and there are plenty of walks from the site - you are literally at the top of the moors! The walk into town is a good half hour, longer coming back uphill - but stop at the church half way - they have benches in the grounds!
Very friendly staff who seem to remember everyone's name on site.
Would definitely come back again when in the area - wish it was open in the thick of winter.
Minehead itself has enough shops and eateries etc for most tastes, with supermarkets also in the town.

The site overlooks Minehead, with spectacular views. The walk into town will take around 45 minutes, however the walk back will take longer as it is uphill all the way. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful site, look no further. There are good walks just outside the gate, either through the local woods or cross the road and you are on heath land. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. Would highly recommend this site.
