Welcome to Lowtrow Cross, a small, friendly Adults Only Touring Caravan and Camping site located in 4 acres of unspoilt countryside, close to Wimbleball Lake on the Somerset and Devon borders and on the edge of beautiful Exmoor National Park.
This lovely part of the South West is teeming with wildlife and is the perfect place for the country lover and ideal for those wanting a relaxing break, to take advantage of the miles of wonderful, uncrowded walking, cycle trails, fishing, sailing and riding or just to unwind, read a book and breathe in the clean Somerset air.
Those interested in Geocaching, bird watching or stargazing will not be dissappointed either. There are several Geocaches on Haddon Hill and around the lake, while many species of bird from woodpeckers to goldfinches can been seen nesting and feeding on site and we are blessed with magnificent sunsets and night skys.
Lowtrow Cross makes an excellent base for visiting the many, varied local attractions and for exploring this truly rural part of The West Country with glorious views whichever way you choose to go or as a peaceful retreat from a hectic lifestyle.
On our doorstep is Wimbleball Lake a few minutes drive or a 40 min walk away. Haddon Hill which overlooks the lake, is a piece of moorland with it’s own herd of Exmoor ponies, skylarks and Buzzards circling overhead. Follow one of the many paths over the hill and enjoy the lovely views or take a walk through the woods down to the edge of the lake, the more active will not be able to resist the scenic 9 mile walk around the Lake or the shorter 5 mile walk around Clatworthy Reservoir.
Other places to visit include, Dunster with it’s medieval castle, Tarr Steps (one of the oldest clapper bridges in the country) where you can take a riverside walk and enjoy a drink or cream tea at Tarr Farm, Dunkery Beacon the highest point on Exmoor, Porlock, Blue Anchor Bay, with the excellent, dog friendly Driftwood Cafe, Minehead, Watchet Harbour, Knightshayes Court, Numerous Cider farms and Tea shops, Farmer’s markets and The West Somerset Steam Railway and much, much more.
