  • Directions

    From Porlock take the A39 west up the famous Porlock Hill. After about 1.5 miles fork left towards Exford and Chetsford Water is about 3 miles along this minor road. Small parking area and limited roadside parking either side of the bridge at the head of the combe.

  • Accessibility

    Open access all year. Rough, narrow and muddy tracks on heather moorland, so not suitable for wheelchairs or those with mobility/stamina issues. Some target species may be viewable from the road at the top of the combe. Nearest facilities in Porlock or Exford.
