Latest Minehead parking reviews
Very straight forward booking system and no problem finding a space to park. Would definitely use again.Paul
Such a brilliant parking opportunity. Really fits the bill when walking the SWCP. Highly recommend. So easy in all ways. The only minor thing is I’d rather my fee (which was so cheap) was part split with the local town council.Anne
Very easy to park.George
It was Fay clean I would give it five stars go to swell marks outDavid
Easy to find as it's the Tesco's car park in Minehead. It seemed a little strange parking in a supermarket car park for a week but it was fine. No problems at all.Tanya
Fantastic service. Sych good value and so easy to use. Would definitely use againStephen
This was a very convenient long stay parking space for our intended long distance walk. Because it was a car park which was much of the time in use by Tesco’s customers, it felt a safe place to leave our car for the 6 days we needed to. Easy to find, would certainly recommend for this type of parking.Hazel
nice and easyTerence
