Clean, nice and in a nice location. Staff friendly and somewhat helpful. Excellent for visiting for local history and nice places to go walking - very glad we came. A bit too far from home so will not able to return.

I loved Minehead, its the first time we'd been but we will be back. First the site, a tiered site on three levels with plenty of shade. And with most CMC the facilities were excellent, nice friendly welcome.

Secondly the town, 10-15 mins from the site and you're in town, lovely shops and plenty of good pubs. Had a day on the West Somerset Steam Railway and very enjoyable it was getting off at Bishop Lydeard and Watchet.

To Find Site:- We approached the site using the A39 from Bridgewater as signs on the M5 instruct you to use junction 23 for Minehead. In future I would stay on the M5 and leave at junction 26 heading back towards Taunton and out to Minehead on the A358.

The location of the Minehead Caravan Club members only site was originally a quarry. This obviously impacts on the layout and feel of the site. The 50 pitches all of which are on hardstandings are set out in terraces some levelling might be required. Even when the sun is out some of the pitches will be in shade, particularly going into autumn, due to a high bank topped with trees on the southern edge of the site. This also makes getting satellite reception difficult from some pitches. Electric points are convenient to pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. There are a couple of service points for water and waste amongst the pitches but for some it will be quite a walk to fill up and empty waste. Likewise the chemical emptying point which is at the lower part of the site behind reception and depending on how you approach will involve a steep access if the shortest route is taken. The motorhome service point is next to reception and has an open grill for the disposal of grey water. The toilet block is of a good standard and has a covered washing up area but only two sinks. At the back of reception is an information room. There is site wide WiFi and time can be purchased online. It would hardly be described as fast but it was generally reliable.

The main attraction to this site will be the closeness to Minehead which is about a twenty minute walk away and reception will provide instructions. The 28 bus, a short walk from the site, runs from Minehead to Taunton with a half hour frequency Monday to Saturday. It is an alternative for getting into town from near the campsite. For those without their own off site transport the bus will also take you to Dunster which makes an interesting excursion from the site. For steam enthusiasts the West Somerset Railway runs regular steam trains from the station down on the seafront in the town. For shopping there is a parade of shops about a five minute walk from the site entrance with a fish and chip shop, Chinese takeaway and a Co-Op convenience store. If you want a more substantial shop there is a Morrisons and a Tesco in the town.

Great site made even better by the helpful and cheerful site wardens. Easy walk into Minehead (about 15 mins max) and all the quality showers and facilities you expect from Caravan club. Lots of busses available to various locations, nearby Dunster being a real gem.

Access to this site is easy with a wide sweeping entrance directly off the A39.

The wardens are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. All pitches are hard standing set out in separate areas. The site is in an old quarry and slopes considerably which would make staying for the less mobile among us a little difficult.

Most pitches are sloping so expect to do some levelling.

A Co-op is within walking distance along with numerous takeaways. Larger supermarkets are Morrisons and Tesco just a short drive away.

Mobile signal on Orange and Tesco good as was the digital TV reception.

Marvellous wooded dog walk on site too.

Reviewer: Ljamfam 27 reviews from this member

This is our first stay on a Caravan Club site and we were a bit anxious about the rules with regard to the placement of our van on the pitch following adverse criticism is in both magazines and from fellow motorhome owners. However we had no problem at all. We were told to go in either front or back first so long as we did not go across ways and stayed within our area we could pitch to suit us.

Location is within easy walk to Minehead or if you like to travel out more then there are plenty of nice places to visit. A van arrives each morning selling newspapers and a few essentials or it's just a five minute walk to a parade of shops which include a supermarket and fish'n chip shop.

The wardens keep the site lovely. All the facilities are spotless and it's nice to have plenty of hot water without keep pressing a button. Nice dog walk area.

A very nice site and well worth a visit
