#4 of 10 in Porlock
Family site with free hot water and showers, toilets, washing up facilities, laundry room, washing and drying machines, hairdryer and shaving points, fridge/freezer and public phone. Luggage transfer available. Open February - December with limited winter availability. 5 Minutes walk to the village and its shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. Fine sea and hill views. Beautiful 20 minutes amble down to the sea. On South West Coast Path Daily charges: £10.00 Adults, £6.00 Students, £3.00 Children - 4 and under free. Weekly rate: Pay for 6 and stay for 7 days. Dog exercise area, dogs £1. Electric hook-ups available - £5, please pre-book. We regret, access does not allow for towed caravans. Directions: We are located at Porlock just off the A39, which follows the picturesque Somerset coastline between Williton and Lynmouth. If approaching Porlock from Minehead, descend into the village and turn immediately right into Meadowhayes - the campsite is directly ahead of you at the end of this road. If approaching Porlock from Lynmouth, descend Porlock Hill and travel through the village, rounding the corner next to the church. Look for a small road on the left-hand side, Sparkhayes Lane. Turn in here and follow the winding road for a short distance until, at the junction with Meadowhayes, you see the campsite on your left. Amenities: There is so much to do near here for those who love fresh air and countryside. Boundless acres of Exmoor to explore, beaches and extensive woodlands, various National Trust properties and picture-postcard scenery including thatched cottages and pack-horse bridges. Cream tea heaven, with horse riding and golf a short distance away. Local attractions include the West Somerset Railway, Butlins, Exmoor Zoo and many more. Porlock is well equipped with cafes, restaurants and pubs, all reasonably priced, and our little harbour at Porlock Weir is well worth a walk. Stunning sunsets and abundant wildlife, a relaxed, friendly and extremely clean environment.

Large fields for camping. Grass was very long in the bottom field. Toilets only in the bottom field and showers and loos located in the top field. Only 2 showers but several loos in the women’s. Clean but basic. Very friendly bunch of campers, moho’s, tents and bikers. Sea views and right in the village walking distance to the pubs.

I have been coming here, off and on for over 20 years. It is basic but perfect. Everything just works. The owner, Phil, is a real gent. The showers are small, but wear shorts in, and hang them and your towel on the door. They won't get wet and then after your shower dry yourself down and put your shorts back on .

Just returned from a 7 night break here. We didn’t want a big site that was packed out. We were not disappointed. The toilets / showers are kept very clean and site is relaxed. The views are beautiful. Porlock village has everything you need! Big shout out to Phil the site owner, he is very friendly and accommodating. We Will return

Tried to book a stay in our campervan by calling the mobile number as per the website but told I needed to email instead. Maybe website should be updated for future prospective guests. Not a great first impression although from reviews the site seems good.
