Location 

Wimbleball Sailing Club is in the Exmoor National Park, Somerset , about 45 minutes drive from Taunton. Take the A358 from Taunton towards Minehead. Shortly after passing Bishop's Lydeard, turn left (under the railway bridge) on the B3224 towards Wheddon Cross. About half a mile after passing the 'Raleighs Cross' on the left the road to Wheddon Cross forks to the right; do not take this fork. Carry straight on (now the B3190). After a further mile turn right towards Brompton Regis; from this point Wimbleball Water Park is sign-posted. From the bridge, across the north end of the lake, go up the hill, at the top turn left. The entrance to the sailing club is the third sign-posted entrance on your left.

Wimbleball Lake covers an area of 385 Acres on Exmoor National Park.

As well as being the home of Wimbleball Sailing Club there are many other local activities such as walking and cycling with spectacular paths around the lake. There are good pubs and shops in the nearby village of Dulverton.

There is local accommodation and camping within walking distance.
