 Sloping site with few level pitches. The road up to the site is very narrow and twisty.

The staff were super friendly, excellent facilities which were all free to use. Beware, the toilets are closed between 11 & 12 every day for cleaning.

Lovely rabbits share the site, so may not be suitable for dogs that chase. Fantastic walks nearby. The walk down to Greenaleigh Sands is through woodland, grassland and onto the beach. We then walked to Minehead.

The walk is tough coming back up and is around 8 miles in all. Donít bother visiting Burgandy Chapel, apart from the doorway, itís just a pile of rubble and quite a distance off the path to Greenaleigh Sands.

Final word - TAKE TICK HOOKS WITH YOU - I eventually managed to get tick hooks from Tesco pharmacy but the dogs came back with 16 ticks between the two of them. Luckily we humans didnít get any. Keep trousers tucked into socks when walking on the moors and through woodland!

 I loved this site, right on top of the hill with stunning views across Bristol Channel and loads of walking from campsite gate on open moorland and through wooded coombes. Plenty of space for the dog to run around.

Most of the pitches are on sloping grass, there are only a few hard standings and electric pitches. Facilities always clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and can lend extra levelling chocs if need be and battery packs could be charged.

The walk into Minehead is steep and its an OK town, no dogs on the beach which was disappointing given the size of it. The rugged section of the coast path towards Porlock is far more interesting than the non-rugged route.

The road up to the site is very steep in places, with narrow sections, parked cars and hairpin bends. Make sure to follow the instructions given by the site.

 I really liked this site, it was walking distance of Minehead, bus stops and down the road the best fish and chip shop.

We have a dog and there is a wood on site for walking dogs but nothing to let them run and couldn't find a field nearby but we did plenty of walking we walked to Dunster (lovely village) it has a castle and a working mill.

The beaches at Minehead are not the best a little better in front of Butlins but the dog beaches at either side of Minehead were disgusting, worst I've ever seen. Minehead is a very nice town with lots of shops down the high street.

I really enjoyed my time here, the showers and toilets were very clean, and the people were very friendly will go again.

 The road to the campsite can be a bit daunting and the pitches are mainly on a slope but make the effort because this is a lovely site.

There is a woodland path down to the seaside town of Minehead. It takes about half and hour but you can take a taxi back if the return journey is too steep for you.

But the joy of the site's position for us was the proximity to Exmoor. Walk out of the main gate and cross over the road to find miles and miles of beautiful heather and gorse.

A longer walk, or a car ride, to the right of the site gate gives you amazing views over the Bristol Channel to Wales.

Friendly helpful guardians; clean facilities although they could do with enlarging and updating; plenty of happy holiday makers enjoying themselves outdoors.

 Excellent site with great views of the Bristol Channel. Long walk up hill from Minehead. Great walks on the edge of Exmoor.

Superb team & services on site.

 Great site near the top of a steep hill on outskirts of Minehead. Pleasant walk into Minehead through woodland and residential area but uphill on way back. Lovely walks from the site onto Exmoor - plenty of chance to see the ponies and fabulous views out to sea. Watch out for ticks if you have a dog. There were issues with the water supply to the showers and toilets while we were there, but good hot showers when they worked. Site on a slope with levelled out sections. Really enjoyed our stay - impressed with Minehead itself (something for everyone) and particularly the moorland walks up the hill from the site. Helpful warden who was happy to make suggestions regarding walks. Delivery van called in the morning but we didn't use it.

 A little gem of a site, very accommodating site warden, delivery van for essentials every morning. Spotless toilets and nice ice cream! Steep walk into town and maybe a taxi back, but the view form the campsite is stupendous.

Sites without power tended to be 'on the slosh' but power with hard standing were fine.

Minehead has good facilities, a decent full size heritage railway, plenty of eating houses and all the usual shops. For a North Devon tour can't be a better site. But take care with the drive up the hill follow the instructions.

 We were touring the area and spotted this site online. We tried to book on the C&CC website but were told there was a two night minimum. Undeterred, we phoned direct to be told they had 30 pitches!

This is a great little site with amazing views (not from all pitches) and fantastic walks on the adjacent heathland. The site itself is compact and friendly with decent shower facilities. Apparently someone comes around every morning with provisions but we were already on the heath by then.

Minehead is just a short drive sway with its supermarkets and shops. We visited Blue Anchor, just a few miles up the coast and parked up for free close to the heritage railway station.

If you do visit this site you're warned not to set Satnav too early but to wait until you're on the seafront at Minehead.

 Really nice site with fantastic views over Minehead and the Bristol Channel. A sloping site, so be warned but everything good - toilet/washblock very clean and pleasant with good showers. A bit hard to find so take extra care and don't get lost like we did. Close to many walks on Exmoor as well - a lovely area.

 A little gem! Lovely views of minehead and the bay with a bonus of watching the steam trains. A steep hill to walk up but some old thatched cottages to look at and of course the wonderful views. The site is extremely friendly. Keith was funny and helpful as was his sidekick. Shower and wash up areas were clean and functional and free! Even a washing line for public use. Take pegs! A washing machine and dryer were £3 and 20p or multiple for dryer. Small shop for essentials and a mobile shop comes at 9. 39 am selling papers, milk etc. Plenty of woodland walks around the site. I shall be returning. All this for 5. 85 per night for a lone hiker who spent 3 days instead of the 1 planned.
