Brompton Regis has a lot to offer.

Wimbleball Lake is just a mile away and is the perfect stretch of water for keen yachtsmen, canoeists and anglers. The lake is a large reservoir, about 400 acres in size, with a dam at its southern end which controls the release of water for supply throughout the South West region. It has an outdoor and activity centre which offers water sport tuition, a sailing club, a campsite, a children’s play area and a coffee shop.

For ramblers, there are many local walks that take you through Storridge Woods, around the Lake, up and around Haddon Hill or around the village - all of which provide some stunning scenery. Similarly for horse riders, there are many bridleways that enable you to keep away from the roads and where you can enjoy some peace and quiet interrupted only by the sounds of the countryside.

The village is also well placed for those who want to enjoy or take part in some major events  that attract international attention.

  • The Two Moors Festival has established itself as a highly popular event in the Arts calendar.
  • The Exmoor Golden Horseshoe ride is one of the toughest endurance rides in the Equine calendar. It brings together many of the UK’s best endurance riders, and some top-class international riders, to compete at different levels up to the highly challenging 100 mile endurance ride.
  • Wimbleball Lake offers a range of events throughout the year, from triathlons, to wild swims and Dark Skies events
