Follow the signs for Minehead (A358), passing the Cross Keys Inn and signs for Bishops Lydeard and the station. You will see Cedar Falls Health Farm on the right. Take the next left onto B3224 signposted Exford etc. Drive up through the hills and eventually you will drop down and go straight across the crossroads. Climb the steep hill passing Raleigh's Cross Inn. Shortly after this road changes to B3190 (signposted Bampton). Don't turn right at the chapel - just keep going.
Within 2 miles, turn off right between 2 reflective bollards signed by a brown tourists sign to Wimbleball Lake. Drive over the bridge and the road narrows going up hill. Just after some farm buildings take the next left to the lake. Follow the sign to Wimbleball Lake. Drive past 3 entrances on left to lake and climb lane. Your satnav will take you to a cottage on the left (this is not us) follow the lane and eventually it drops down to the left. Ignore the sign saying 'no public right of way'. We are on the left just beyond our old tin garage.
We are on a single-track lane with passing places. Our 28-foot caravan and 7.5 tonne horse lorry can move in and out comfortably but please bear this in mind.
If you’re pitching up in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you’ll find plenty to see and do, with Dulverton, the gateway to Exmoor, on the doorstep and with the beaches of Minehead, Dunster, Porlock, Lynton and Lynemouth all within easy reach alongside miles of cracking Devon coastline – the Victorian railway down the cliffs is a must-do. History buffs will be in heaven with the cathedral and medieval tunnels at Exeter an hour south, while foodies can browse around the gourmet shops and market at Barnstaple.
If you’d like to something a little more active than sunbathing, sightseeing or railway-riding, take your pick from local fishing, golf, sailing, horse-riding, climbing and more, or hire a bike to cover a few more miles. Or try a sailing or fishing holiday on Wimbleball Lake – with a 10% discount available for Keen campers at the South West Lakes Trust Activity Centre.
Walkers will find a first-class route onto Haddon Hill or the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or can take in the many local beauty spots including Tarr Steps and Dunkey Beacon. And walks can be combined with nature-spotting by taking the 13-mile walk around Wimbleball Lake and looking out for some kingfishers and red deer. Naturally, there’s a tearoom to stop at en route for the obligatory Devon tea and scones...
