 This site is located towards the edge of town in a fairly quiet location. The facilities are good although they could probably do with 1 more shower each and another washing-up sink. There are no facilities for children to play so they were using the steeply sloping site roads as a scooter and skateboard track which was a bit worrying.

Minehead is an easy walk as are Morrisons and Tescos. The town is very attractive beyond the seafront which has the usual amusements. Try the harbour and a walk through the linear park.

There are lovely walks direct from the site - to Dunster in one direction and Porlock in the other. You can also use the steam railway as a basis for walks - and for visiting the Bakelite Museum!

Overall a very pleasant site to visit.

 This was our first visit to this site as we usually go to Dulverton in this area.

The site is on the edge of town, in a residential area next to the fire station but once inside it was lovely with a fair bit of planting.

When we arrived the warden's office was shut but a notice on the door made everything clear. The relevant information we needed was available.

Because all the roads are dead ends they advise you walk the site, pick you pitch then tow up to it.

There are, I think, three levels. The site looked fairly full but there were spaces on the top site so up we went.

We thought this was the best part of the site but it is up a steep, short hill and furtherest from the toilet/shower block so not the best if you are not too good on you pins.

As stated this is a C.C. Site so no surprises. Up to the usual high standard, very clean generally with clean toilets/showers.

It appeared to be all hardstanding with hook-ups but slightly sloped so blocks were handy.

There is no play area on this site.

If you turn right out of the gate there is a parade of shops about five minutes walk away.

A 15 minute walk gets you into Minehead, a usual sort of seaside town. 'The Wheelhouse' cafe is good.

Places to visit are Lynton and Lynmouth, Dunster Castle, Porlock and Porlock Weir. There is a very enjoyable steam train journey from Minehead. Well worth a go.

All in all a pretty good site, the wardens here make a big effort to attract wild life, you might even find deer on the site. You can even hear the sea-lions at night.

Reviewer: AlanEag 10 reviews from this member

 Just returned from our first visit to Minehead and this is a first class site. Caravan Club sites are more or less of the same quality regarding facilities and they can only be bettered by things like layout, and more importantly, the wardens. We were welcomed by Darrol, the warden, and he really was enthusiastic about the area and the site. The pitches were very large, able to pitch the caravan with room to place the aquaroll on the hardstanding, erect the awning AND park the car alongside. The site is on the A39 but with the hill between the site and the road there was absolutely no noise, just birdsong. The dog walk is through a wooded area with a badger sett, bats and owls. The absence of a children's play area obviously discourages family groups and as a result when we were there there were no children about despite being the start a half term. A site we will return to without a doubt.

 Rang the site at short notice and managed to get a 4 night stay at the end of May. We were told to push our CC membership card through the reception door and choose a pitch as the wardens would be cleaning the loos. No problem here as a site map could be picked up on arrival.

There were three levels to the site the upper level being one large hardstanding area. We took a middle tier pitch with grass strips either side and perfectly level. TV reception was excellent.

Picked up a key to use the showers/toilets. Nice touch was that when the loos were being cleaned a single toilet for men and women was opened up.

Showers were enormous and the hand basins were all individually enclosed. Both were kept spotlessly clean.

There is Co-op and Spar about 5 or 10 minutes walk away along with a Chinese take away and a fantastic fish and chip shop. It takes about 15 minutes to walk into Minehead town centre which consists of two halves the sea front with gift shops / amusement arcades and the upper town where there are some decent shops and cafes.

We caught a No: 300 open top bus to Lynmouth (5.30 return or free with bus pass) passing through Porlock (1in4 hills!) where we spent a pleasant couple of hours. Watch out for the branches on the top deck they can be really painful!

 Well situated site, close to Minehead. For motorhomes, go to Dunster Beach for easy access, plenty of open parking spaces with no barrier or size restrictions.

Site is lovely -mostly. Wonderfully clean facilities, only 3 showers but not too busy. Not really a site for children, think it would suit couples better. Some areas are quite uphill from the toilet block but there are pitches dedicated for the less able.

Main complaint is that, whilst the majority of the site is hardstanding pitches with grass alongside, one area is purely gravelled and looked much less comfortable or attractive than the others. Would recommend you try to avoid these pitches if you can.

 A fantastic site, easy walking and cycling into minehead town which is great for breakfast, lunch, high tea and dinner ohhh and drinks in the evening.

The site wardens were lovely and helpful, we had probs with our car on the way down to minehead and the wardens offered advice on local garages and were very concerned, we felt truly mothered!

I would visit the site again and recommend it highly, I lost my husband to North hill cycle riding most evenings the peace and quite was much appreciated.

I can recommend the Indian in Alcombe, it was not cheap but a really nice meal.

All in all a fab time had by my husband, self and dogs murphy (cocker) and wallace (lurcher) who had great fun on both minehead and dunster beach! The running would have been great if only I had not sprained my ankle on the first day!

 Just returned from our first visit to this site. A lovely little site and great a location in that it manages to feel very rural, whilst only being 15-20min walk from Minehead centre / seafront (whilst sitting outside the 'van one evening, we even managed to catch sight of several deer walking along the top hedgerow).

The site itself is on several levels and groups of pitches are set out in a 'cul-de-sac' style. On arrival, we found the office was closed and as it was early afternoon I initially thought this was a bit poor but after having taken a moment to read the notices, it was clear that all the relevant information was left out for us. Including a very handy little town map,tucked into the site leaflet(.A very thoughtful and useful touch).

The loos & showers are up to the usual high CC standards.

Also the wardens were very helpful and pleasant.

 Fantastic little site, our first CC site and a great first choice. Good sized pitches, everything close to hand and easy to get to. Friendly, helpful wardens who work tirelessly to maintain the site. Very clean shower block where there is plenty of hot water and showers where you can adjust the flow rate and temperature! Not many of these around! All in all a wonderful little site which is very well run, easy to access and handy for lots of North Somerset attractions.

Reviewer: Kernow Camper 169 reviews from this member

 This certainly is a lovely little site. Approximately 50 pitches all in small'ish 'cul-de-sac' areas so it really does feel small and cosy. Good size hardstanding pitches.
Refuse and water points all close by. Lovely, helpful, happy wardens. If the office is closed on your arrival there are clearly marked instructions of what to do.
Central toilet/shower blocked accessed by key - always spotless and lovely warm showers. Great dog walk on site - small but very well used.

A van comes to the site each morning around 9am to sell newspapers, bread, milk, eggs, etc.

Alcombe is just a 5/10 min walk from the site and has a Spar, Co-op, Newsagent, and numerous take-aways including Indian, Chinese, fish & chips and pizza!

Minehead itself is 20/25 mins walk from the site - the wardens will give you directions if you ask. Full of pound shops and and very 'kiss me quick' / gifty shops. Not our favourite seaside town but I'm sure a lot of people love it?

We wish we could pick this site up and relocate it somewhere really special!

 Just arrived back from this site, highly recommended. Easy walk to minehead 15mins, local shops close by. Good sized pitch`s, although some sheltered from sun,
Wardens and toilet`s first class. Not a lot on site if you have small children, no play area, great dog walk watch out for badgers. Will use again
