Welcome to Porlock Caravan PArk
We are delighted to welcome you to our family-run, multi-award winning Caravan Park, set in the beautiful vale of Porlock, in the National Exmoor Park. Our aim is to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, whether you are camping, touring or staying in one of our luxury holiday homes. We are passionately committed to conservation and wildlife, including our Bellamy award-winning garden, whilst maintaining our grounds and facilities to the highest standards to ensure you have a great and memorable holiday.
Porlock Caravan Park is an ideal base for activities such as walking (coastal path), horse-riding, cycling or relaxing and enjoying the abundance of wildlife amongst the undisturbed tranquility and outstanding natural beauty of England's finest countryside. Exmoor is one of the most tranquil National Parks and offers some of the best star gazing in the country, we're home to the tallest tree in England, and host the highest cliffs in mainland Britain in addition to providing the stomping ground for the largest herds of Red Deer (Britain's largest wild mammal) in England and home of the famous Exmoor Pony - the oldest breed Europe. We offer the perfect location from which to experience and explore Devon and West Somerset or to visit the picturesque harbours and resorts of the breathtaking coastline.
The site is ideally situated just a short stroll from Porlock village centre with pubs, restaurants, village retailers and good transport links to Minehead. Dog owners are most welcome and although we regularly attract a mature clientele, we look forward to welcoming all guests both old and new and can help you plan your days by recommending sites of interest and places to visit.
We closed for the winter season, fully re-opening on 14 March. We are now taking bookings - book early to avoid disappointment!
"One of the nicest sites I've found over the last 5 years and I've been a regular visitor since my first stay in 2009. It is in the perfect location for the Exmoor National Park and only 2 minutes walk into the town centre where there are some Lovely places to eat and drink. I've used this site as a base for cycling and there are some of the nicest, traffic-free (almost) roads in the South West. The grounds and facilities are immaculate and it is so pleasing to have such good showers after a long day in the saddle. It is also a peaceful site for one near a town centre - this could be due to the enthusiastic camper/caravan clientele who have more consideration for other users. This is a site I will return to on a regular basis!"
"Why bother with flight delays, sheep pens, lost luggage and jet lag. A rest away from it all in this beautifully kept site is the best holiday anyone can need. The facilities are kept spotless, the staff always helpful and friendly and the surrounding area just beautiful. There are so many superb places to walk to."
"The Dandy Owners Club used the Rally field. We rate this site highly. Wonder-full sea view.
Very well kept site and facilities. Friendly and helpful owners and wardens."
"The Porlock Campsite lies nearby the village, just a stroll of 5 minutes. Pitches are fine, spacious. The campsite is surrounded by trees and shrubs which block the wind. The tent site is far more open but has a wonderful view over the sea. There is no direct path to the sea from the campsite. I have never seen (in 50 years) a campsite so clean as this one. So if that is important for you, this is the place to be. Specially the showers: lovely! Porlock is a nice village, not so touristic as Minehead, more tranquil. The staff are very friendly and helpful."
"We stayed on the site in June 2014 and it the pitches are nice and level, the toilet block very clean and tidy and the staff friendly. The campsite has good access to the shops and is not too far from a Costcutter for food and wine. The sea is easily accessed down a track from the site and you can walk to Porlock Weir in about 45 mins and its a nice walk. The site is dog friendly and has a useful exercise run for the dogs."
"A truly outstanding campsite in a lovely setting. We stayed in our tourer for four nights in May 2014. The facilities are excellent, with 'platinum' standard loos & showers. Site staff are very friendly, extremely helpful and work hard to ensure every aspect of the Park is kept looking beautiful. Lots to do and see round and about this beautiful area of Exmoor. Plenty of local walks (bought a book of ten walks based nearby from local tourist information centre). Close to the village, with all you could want, including the excellent Ship Inn. Will definitely return."
"Myself and my husband stayed here Sat 6th July. The site was immaculate. Fantastic views. The site is small so your pitch is pre-booked. You are never immediately looking at your neighbours as the cars are placed either side of your pitch. Plenty of room for us in our 3 man tent. No complaints for us. We will certainly return. My parents stay here on a regular basis again testament to the quality of the site."
