Clatworthy Reservoir, Nr Wiveliscombe, Somerset
High up in the Brendon Hills on the edge of Exmoor, Clatworthy Reservoir supplies water to over 200,000 homes. It’s a very peaceful and secluded spot which is why it’s a favourite for walking and fishing; the lake is well stocked with rainbow and brown trout that can be caught from the bank or out on the waters in a boat. Walkers can take the short nature trail or walk the 5 mile perimeter of the reservoir, and it’s worth taking binoculars with you because the wide ranging habitat makes it excellent for wildlife. There’s plenty of parking, public loos and a viewing area; on your way home stop off in Wiveliscombe at The Bear Inn for a drink.
