Tarr Steps Toilets -  Sep 2018

Please note that due to a problem with the water supply, we have had to temporarily close the toilets at the car park above Tarr Steps.  We are working on the issue and hope to get it fixed as soon as possible .

Visiting Tarr Steps

Whether you are an experienced walker or someone who prefers a short stroll, Tarr Steps is a great place to go when looking to explore Exmoor National Park. You can head straight there, utilising the on site car park and toilet facilities, with just a gentle walk down to the ancient clapper bridge. The beautiful wooded valley of the River Barle is also worth exploring for its wildlife, as is the heathland of Winsford Hill and its wild ponies in the surrounding countryside. For a short circular walk from the bridge just follow the orange way marks.
