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

This is a small, family farm within Exmoor National Park, offering quiet camping 50 metres from the shore of Wimbleball Lake. Only a small number of secluded pitches available, so visitors will always have plenty of space.

The site is on a working family farm and at certain times of the year there are activities such as shearing and feeding lambs that visitors are welcome to get involved with.

There's direct access to the lake and the cycle path around the lake. Wwatersports and high ropes can be booked at the lake, and fly fishing is also available.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

    The field was lovely to pitch up in as no guided lines and the cars weren’t kept on the field. Quite and lovely people who greeted us and showed us around. The showers and toilets were really clean and a really nice hot shower.

    Lovely small, quiet, safe and family friendly site with grass pitch not soggy despite heavy recent rain. Easy access to newly refurbished facilities block with toilets, showers, washing up area and luxury of a fridge-freezer. Kids loved cooking on the camp fire (fire basket for rent and wood for purchase on site.) Super friendly and helpful owners. Short walk along the lake to playground and water sport hire centre. Really super site.

    We have just returned from a two night stay with our children and puppy, the site was beautiful the owners really friendly and couldn't have been more helpful when we realised we had forgotten the children's wellies ( British weather 😒) they really went above and beyond drying coats and soggy shoes on their Agra, lending us wellies and putting up with our children's constant questions! The fire pit is brilliant value for money, the toilets and showers spotless there's even a fridge freezer to store your spoilable food. Its a two minute walk to the beautiful lake and a 5/10 minute walk each way to a dam and a children's play area. We will without doubt be returning ( if they will have us lol) hopefully when the weather is better with and without the children to make the most of the beautiful surroundings. If you want to get away from everything Its prefect no phone signal, no Wi-Fi we loved it!! Also other reviews have said its hard to find but if you follow a sat nav and then their directions its not so hard to find.

    Excellent campsite, perfect for biking, walking children’s activities. Excellent views and tranquility of the lake in the background. I take my hat off to the owners, washing facilities were second to none and any help or questions we had were answered with as much helpful detail as possible. Also supplying us with wine after a long semi stressful journey made it a whole lot easier. Would highly recommend this campsite.

Small, idyllic campsite with friendly owners. 28/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Victoria B. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We've only been camping as a family for two years but have quickly discovered that this type of campsite is our favourite. The location is quiet and hidden away (not helpful if you want to be able to walk to pubs/shops but great if you want tranquility and the feeling of escape) and we loved the space afforded to each tent. The availability of fire baskets and wood for rental was a fab bonus as was the proximity of the lake. Being able to stay until 12 on departure day made making up more leisurely than usual and gave the tent a chance to dry out.

    The facilities are very basic and rustic but totally adequate and surely that's the trade-off for staying on such a quiet, small and idyllic site? The owners are extremely friendly, approachable and welcoming. What more could you ask for? We are already planning our next visit!

    Disliked: 

    We were very lucky with our pitch which was reasonably level but not all pitches looked that way. However, as long as you get there in good time I don't see this being a problem.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind comments. We are improving the flat areas on our camping field so if you visit us next year we hope that you appreciate the changes. We are also refurbishing the toilet and wash up facilities.

    Lovely that you can walk down to the lake
    Very quiet site, very few camping.

    Disliked: 

    The field was so wet and sloping that we had to park at the top and carry everything down to our pitch, this was even worse when we packed up.

From the manager...

I agree the field was wet but we had just had three weeks of non-stop rain. I am afraid we can't control the British weather! We asked guests to park cars on hard standing so that they didn't get stuck and churn up the site. Today the sun is shining and it is glorious so we hope you return to stay with us again one day when the weather is better.

Directions


There is a similarly named campsite next door to us, please follow these directions to make sure you get to us:

Take the M5 motorway to Taunton (Junction 25). From Junction 25 take the A358 in the direction of Minehead for 8.4 miles. Turn left onto the B3224 and travel for 10.8 miles, this takes you past a large pub called Raleghs Cross. After you have passed Raleghs Cross take the second turn right and follow the signs to Wimbleball Lake. After you have crossed the road bridge over the lake, take the first left towards the café and picnic area, keep going past the café and sailing club. We are at the end of the road on the right and there is a sign saying Wimbleball Holidays/South Greenslade Farm.

Our telephone number will be in the Pitchup.com booking confirmation email in case you get lost, but there is not much mobile reception around here! If you have a satnav our postcode (TA22 9NU) takes you to a house 500 metres from the farm. When the satnav tells you that 'you have reached your destination' keep on going to the end of the road (bear left at the fork) and we are the first house on the right with an arch over the gate.
