Wimbleball Lake Country Park
Wimbleball Lake has something for all who love the outdoors.
Nestled in the hills of Exmoor National Park, surrounded by rolling hills and breath-taking lake views - Wimbleball Lake offers an excellent day out for families, walkers, nature enthusiasts and Exmoor lovers alike.
Wimbleball Lake is the bit of Exmoor that has it all – miles of off-road foot and cycle trails, woodlands, wildlife, activities on and off the water and The Duck Café offers fabulous, fresh, local food. There’s ample things to do – spot birds from the hide, let the kids run loose in the play area, climb trees or simply relax and enjoy the superb views.
Experience a proper outdoors adventure - take to the water and create your own canoe safari or mini-sailing quest. If watersports isn’t your thing, head to the woods and swing through the trees on the high ropes course or shoot and arrow and go for gold in archery. Explore the lake by foot or bike, a network of off-road paths and trails lead into woodlands, following the shorelines of the lake and reach out onto open moorland. For the more adventurous walker head to Haddon Hill, it offers one of the most impressive views across Exmoor National Park and you certainly won’t be disappointed with the awe-inspiring view of the lake – you might even spot Exmoor’s iconic deer and ponies on this walk.
Stay the night, whether you love pitching up a tent or glamping in comfort – Wimbleball offers the ultimate outdoor camping holiday on Exmoor. There’s belle tents, wooden pods, grass pitches and hardstandings – you can hire a telescope and try a spot of stargazing or enjoy a night’s stay in the Stargazer Belle tent and spend the night watching shooting stars and constellations through the clear roof.
There’s ample of open space to let your children play freely and get up close to nature – download SW Lakes free kid’s activity sheets and discover mini-beast below your feet, birds soaring over-head, identify trees and track foot prints.
