Wimbleball Lake

A picturesque lake with watersports centre, cafe and campsite set on the edge of Exmoor National Park near Dulverton.


A Tramper can be used to explore some sections of the lakeside path through woodland and across meadows, with great views across the water – great for bird watching.

  • Path surfaces – compacted gravel, tarmac, grass – uneven and bumpy in places.
  • Path gradients – mostly level but some slopes and inclines in places.

A hire fee of £2.50 per hour is charged.

Wheelyboat (not part of Countryside Mobility)

A Wheelyboat is also available for pleasure boating and fishing on the lake. Hire charges are £30 for a half day or £45 for a full day. To check availability or make a booking contact Wimbleball Outdoor and Active Centre on 01398 371460.

All Wheelyboats are hired on a ‘self drive’ basis with instruction provided by staff at the hire site. At some sites it may be possible for an instructor to drive the boat if required – please contact the site directly to discuss this. Life jackets must be worn by all passengers and drivers of boats must be 18 years old or over.
