Where are we?
Brompton Regis is situated in the Brendon Hills just within the boundaries of Exmoor National Park. It is 5 miles to the east of Dulverton and nestles peacefully between Haddon Hill to its south and Wimbleball Lake to its east.
The nearest towns are Minehead (15 miles) to the north and Tiverton (15 miles) to the south with Taunton, the county town of Somerset, only 25 miles away to the east.
In addition to its local attractions, it is ideally located to explore Exmoor and visit the North Somerset and Devon coasts and yet be within easy striking distance of the M5 motorway.
Exit the M5 motorway at either Junction 25 (if you are travelling from the North) or Junction 27 (if you are travelling from the South).
The easiest route is via Junction 27 since this avoids the town centres and is a straight run along the A361 to Tiverton and then turning right onto the A396 as far as the Dulverton turn-off. At this point, follow the signs to Brompton Regis.
If you decide to take the alternative route through Taunton, follow the signs for the A358 to Minehead. At Bishops Lydeard, 4 miles outside Taunton, turn left onto the B3224 (watch out for the steam trains on the West Somerset Railway line). This road will take you to the eastern boundary of Exmoor National Park and onto the village of Wheddon Cross. En route, you will see several road signs pointing the way to Brompton Regis.
