If you’re looking for a great place to get close to nature, want to see some ducks, kick some leaves and have a good walk then Bystock Nature Reserve is great!
There is a free car park on the North side (with sea views) and on road parking at the reservoir end – both are reached off the Woodbury to Budleigh road. The OS map reference is SY 033 844.
The heathland in the middle and around the pools is dense and rough with narrow paths so not suitable for pushchairs or small children but there are higher paths and open spaces perfect for shorter legs. Dogs are allowed all over the reserve but must stay on a lead.
