Clatworthy reservoir is situated in the Brendon Hills on the edge of the Exmoor National Park in west Somerset. It impounds the head waters of the River Tone and the surrounding rolling hills provide a picturesque setting for walking and fishing.
Anglers can enjoy fishing for rainbow and brown trout from the banks of this 130-acre reservoir or from a boat. Fishing boats may be hired for 11, or you may use your own motor (electric outboard only).
Clatworthy reservoir offers the chance to stroll at leisure through a short nature trail or, for the more adventurous, it is possible to walk the entire reservoir perimeter of five miles. There is ample parking and public toilets at the viewing area which is signposted from Wiveliscombe.
From the viewing area visitors can take the perimeter walk - allow 2½ to 3 hours to complete this walk. The car park is open throughout the year, but is locked at sunset.
