How to get here

From Exeter take the A376 towards Exmouth, and at Clyst St George take the B3179 towards Woodbury. Follow the road through Woodbury and after you leave the village take the first turning on the right signposted Exmouth/Budleigh Salterton. Continue along this road for 1.1km (0.7 miles) until you reach the T-junction; turn right onto the B3180. After 1.3km (0.8 miles) look out for a right turn signposted to Exmouth. Do not take this turning.

For the top (North) entrance of the reserve Take the unsigned turning immediately on the left (easily missed). After 580m (0.4 miles) you will pass Wright’s Lane, continue for a further 270m (0.2 miles) and a gateway on the right leads into the reserve. There is a small grassy area where you can park but this should be avoided during wet weather.

For the main visitor entrance with easy access path Stay on the B3180, take the small left turn 2nd left after the Exmouth turning, a brown tourist sign with a reservoir symbol can be seen from this main road. You will see a pond on your left and the entrance to the nature reserve.
