Wimbleball

Wimbleball Lake

Nestled in the rolling hills of Exmoor

This 530 acre site is one of Exmoor’s most popular tourist attractions – boasting the perfect blend of excitement and tranquillity.

For the more active visitor there are miles of walking and cycling trails, archery, climbing and a fantastic range of watersports. To get on the water, visitors can either bring their own craft and pay a launch fee, or hire kayaks, sailing boats, stand up paddle boards, windsurfs and rowing boats from us from as little as £11 per hour (including wetsuits, safety cover and buoyancy aids).

For those who prefer a more relaxing visit there are plentiful meadows, woodlands and picnic areas – a great escape from modern life’s hustle and bustle. Wimbleball is also a fantastic place for outdoor learning – whether it’s birdwatching, bushcraft or stargazing there’s always something special to see and do.

Great days out on Exmoor

Wimbleball is looked after by a dedicated site team and regular volunteers who assist with conservation tasks such as coppicing, hedgelaying and meadow management which benefits species such as Kestrel, Red Deer, hedgehogs and bats which are all found on site.

The Duck Café offers fabulous, fresh, local food. A cosy woodburner and a hot chocolate or home-made soup make a visit on a cold day worthwhile, whilst delicious salads, freshly made pies and quiches followed by sumptuous locally made ice cream keep summer visitors energised on summer days.

Fitting in with the aims of the South West Lakes Trust, an all-terrain mobility scooter (called ‘The Tramper’) and a wheel chair accessible boat (The ‘Wheelyboat’) are available on site to enable more visitors to get out and explore with family and friends. Please call or email for more information.

We look forward to welcoming you to this picturesque site and ensuring whatever you choose to do with us, you have a great time!

Trout Fishing

Did you know?

The water is 50m deep in places –
when the water is low it is possible to see
the ruins of a house built before the valley
was flooded in the 1970’s.
