General

  • Peaceful secluded family farm within Exmoor National Park

  • 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.

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

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Victoria B. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass trailer tent or 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.

    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.

Beautiful scenery, lovely camping! 09/08/2017

annabel_s233401 Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Our stay at Wimbleball Lake was fantastic, the owner was lovely, great to chat to and really helpful (top tips!). He told us about all the different routes for beautiful walks, a nearby cafe and helped us with navigation out of Exmoor.

    We had a great stay, made use of the firepits available and we were even offered chairs to borrow for the evening, which made our trip as we were in need of a seat! The facilities were good; although we didn't use the showers, the toilet and washing up area/fridge were clean and tidy.

    The area surrounding the campsite is beautiful, it was great to be so close to the owner's sheep, the lake and woodland walks.

    We would definitely stay again, we didn't want to leave!

    Everything! We're returning customers, three years in a row now and plan on coming back next year. The site is small and friendly, close to the lake and the owners are fab! It had rained a lot before we arrived (you can't help the weather) the owner immediately ordered a load of gravel to put down on the ground by the entrance to stop cars getting stuck. We love coming here, it's always a pleasure.

Small site with clean, basic facilities and friendly owners 07/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Sue D. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    This is the kind of site we like. Small with basic facilities, dogs and camp fires permitted. The site is not very level, but we managed to find a flatish spot. The weather had been foul, but the site owner was on hand to dry out footwear/clothing and even pull cars out with his tractor when necessary.

    We loved our stay here, it was a little wet when we arrived so they gave us a choice of pitches. The scenery was gorgeous and there was plenty of things to do within a short walk. The owners were very friendly and approachable, they even let my daughter feed the sheep with them, which made her day.

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.
