Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We have returned here year after year for nearly 20 years. It's position is perfect and Porlock is a lovely little village which has everything you need when camping.
On the negative side...... The toilets and showers. They are an acquired taste but to be honest we have never found it to be a problem.
Phil the owner is very friendly and let's you just turn up and pitch. He makes his way round for money in the evening and morning.
We will just keep returning for a chill out camping experience.

2 large fields for camping. Just turned up on the day, found plenty of space (especially as it was during the August Bank Holiday Weekend) and set up camp in the corner. Showers are free and relatively clean. Never met the owner/campsite manager so had to leave our camping fees in a designation location in the kitchen area; a serious trust system.

Really cheap: £7 for adults and £4 for students which made up for the lack of facilities.

Excellent location to the centre of Porlock Village with plenty of beautiful walks and drives nearby.

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. ... more   less
