Westhay Moor Nature Reserve
Some of the county’s most threatened habitats and species
Westhay Moor is home to many globally-threatened species and rare or local species such as the Otter, Bittern, Marsh Harrier and Hairy Dragonfly – all of which can be found on our reserves.
Supported by over 18,000 members, Somerset Wildlife Trust has been protecting vulnerable wildlife and preserving wild places for over 50 years.
Sadly, we have now reached a critical point in the care of some of our most important nature reserves such as Westhay Moor.

Westhay Moor is a beautiful nature reserve to explore with its shimmering lakes and reed beds, birds singing and signs of life all around.
The North Hide section of Westhay Moor is currently closed for repairs to the boardwalk, we apologise for the inconvenience and hope to get this sorted soon.
Part of the loop path to the raised hide is temporarily closed, this does not affect access to the hide.
Please do not keep valuables in vehicles, and if possible remove parcel shelf in the boot to show that the vehicle is empty.

Look out for the brown tourist signs (Westhay Moor NNR): From the Avalon Marshes Centre there is one just before the Godney right hand turn to Westhay Moor, one in Westhay village when coming from Meare village, and one in Westhay village when coming from the Avalon Marshes Centre.
