We love this walk , a great easy path around the Wistlandpound Reservoir that is suitable for push chairs and wheelchairs. Easy access and a choice of parking...and some days there is even a Coffee Kart there form coffee Karamba.

Stayed for the weekend at the Calvert Trust. Had a lovely evening walk round the lake with my grandaughter and spent an afternoon canoeing on it with one of the Trudy's great instructors.

We visited Wistlandpound reservoir for the first time on a beautiful day. It was a lovely walk around the reservoir taking about an hour or so, with great opportunities to take beautiful pictures. Great place for relaxing in the tranquil setting.

It says on an Exmoor information website about 2 miles. That sounds about right to me. It is a fab place, try Wimbleball next time, now that is a walk and a half!
