A majestic lake in Exmoor National Park offering first class facilities both on and off the water.
There’s plenty to do including walking, cycling, watersports, camping, fishing or a stop at the cafe. Or you can discover the secrets of the skies at this Dark Skies Discovery Site. Exmoor National Park has been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first place in Europe to achieve this prestigious award and only the second in the world.
The green (easy) grade Wimbleball Wheeler multi-use trail follows the lakeside down to the dam and back again. A couple of moderately steep climbs make this trail only suitable for cyclists who can brake well and are prepared to pedal!
Two further short green (easy) graded loop trails twist and turn through the trees near the cafe and are ideal for anyone learning to ride a bike or get their first taste of riding off-road.
How to get there:
