Wimbleball Holidays: Our pitch with a view of the lake

General

  • Peaceful secluded family farm within Exmoor National Park
  • 50 metres from the shore of Wimbleball Lake
  • Direct access to the lake and the cycle path around it

Hunting for a peaceful and secluded Somerset spot with a backdrop fit for a postcard? Stay at Wimbleball Holidays, 20 minutes' drive from Dulverton, and you can wake up to sublime views of Wimbleball Lake, a mere 50 metres away.

The location is spot on if you fancy trying your hand at a range of watersports, including kayaking, canoeing, rowing, sailing and windsurfing. Walking, cycling, birdwatching and fishing are also popular picks if you’d rather appreciate the lake views while sticking to dry land. More? A 10-minute stroll along the shore of the lake will take you to the impressive Wimbleball Dam.

This peaceful park is within Exmoor National Park, so think moorland, woodland and wildlife… and plenty of ways to explore it all. The area's also famed for its stargazing (it was Europe's first Dark Sky Reserve, no less), so come prepped to stay up late and turn sights skywards on a clear night.

The site is on a working family farm and at certain times of year visitors are welcome to get involved with the running of it, with shearing to be done and lambs to be fed (go on – you know you want to have a go…). There are a couple of village pubs around two miles from the site but if you can’t tear yourself away from the views, barbecues and campfires are permitted on site.

As for facilities, a washing-up area, toilets and showers are available on site.

Please note

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Lovely campsite right by the lake, very secluded and off the beaten track which was really enjoyed. The campsite has a path leading down to the lake which was stunning and a beautiful walk over the dam and up the nearby hill. Not too far for the close by towns with supermarkets available. Great facilities with a big place to wash dishes and big freezer and a fridge for guests to use, showers and toilets were great, always had hot water and were cleaned regularly. Brian and Caroline were great hosts always on hand for any questions or information.

    Fantastic site. Super friendly, great host (Brian was great for suggesting things to do locally, and took children staying on the site to go and feed his lambs- really lovely).

    We have two terriers with us who were made really welcome.

    Clean and well-maintained facilities- ample for the limited number of pitches.

    Amazing location- 2 minutes away from the footpath around Wimbleball Lake.

    Already trying to figure out when we can come back!!

    Beautiful campsite on the farm- small and very cosy. Washing up area and showers/toilets are perfectly clean and cleaned on a daily bases. Owners are super friendly and nice people. If you go with the kids then they will love lambs feeding on the farm! Fires allowed which was a huge fun! Definitely recommend it to anyone and would go back again! Thank you Brian for such a lovely time!

Excellent small site, perfect for a group of families together03/09/2019

  • Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Fantastic little site. Only 6 'pitches', so as a group of families we took the whole place to ourselves. In reality it's an open field so you can pitch where you like. Quite a gradient, but more than enough place to pitch 6 tents without being on top of each other, and with enough separate space for kids to play.

    The facilities (toilets, showers, wash-up, freezer, fridge) were all great.

    Brian is very approachable and friendly.

    Wimbleball Lake is less than a couple of minutes' walk. Take paddleboards/inflatables/etc.

    Very clean facilities - looked basic but actually fitted out out with modern showers and washing up area. Access direct to the lake for bikes and walking. Brian was really friendly and went out of his way to ensure everyone was happy.

    Disliked: 

    We had a nice flat pitch but noticed that half the pitches are on quite a slope - didn't seem to bother the people on that area though.

Local attractions

There's direct access to Wimbleball Lake and its surrounding cycle path from the site, so you don’t have to go far for things to do… just up and go. The lake’s activity centre is less than a mile away; here you can get to grips with a host of activities on water and land, and there’s a high ropes course to tackle too.

Swap the lake for the seafront if you’d rather, as Somerset’s beaches – including Minehead – are around half an hour's drive away. If you’re heading to Minehead and feel like seeking out a bit of history, Dunster village is about five minutes from there, for a wander around Dunster Castle, Conygar Tower and a working watermill.

For family-friendly adventures, it’s all aboard the West Somerset Railway for a ride on a steam train (10 minutes away by car) or off to meet the ponies at Exmoor Pony Centre (half an hour).

40 minutes in the car will take you to the county town of Taunton for an array of high street and independent shops to keep shopaholics busy – historic Bath Place is a good spot to start with if you're partial to picking up bits in independent shops.

Must see

  • Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (14.6 miles)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (18.6 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (23.4 miles)
