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.

This review is for Minehead

The pleasure of this site, views and tranquility are excellent. It is a Jewell in the Crown over looking with wonderful views of Minehead. The site management is excellent. Graham the Site Manager and John his assistant can't do enough to help you. There attention to detail is impeccable. Sue, Grahams wife is always around to give good walking advice to when taking the dogs out. The facilities are absolutely A Star class with cleanliness. Nothing is left out with quaint little tokens around the block. The amusing signage is highly tasteful and gives that feeling of friendliness and welcome. The service given by these site managers is nothing other than exceptional and the knowledge passed of the area of sights to see invaluable. I can't wait to return.

Good site for those not wishing to be close to a village or town.

This review is for Minehead

Good site for those not wishing to be close to a village or town. Lots of different walks on your doorstep, with plenty of wildlife around. Large Tesco, Morrisons and Lidl on the outskirts of Minehead. Short drive to lovely Dunster, which has plenty to see and do. The only downside with the site is that the amenities block needs upgrading as it is getting a bit tired, although everything was always very clean. We really appreciate the basin cubicles that some sites have, rather than having to use basins in a communal area. The addition of a loo that could be used when the main block is closed for cleaning would be a nice addition.
