Travel via Dulverton don't follow the sat nav or you will end up on the wrong side of the river. Fine if you have a 4x4, Cafe/restaurant nearby. Car park at the top £3 all day take change with you its unmanned.

Tarr Steps are well a visit, but getting there, the walk along the river bank from Withypool was far better than Tarr Steps, well worth the effort. Tarr Steps itself was rather too busy in August, but venture more than a few hundred meters from...More

You may be able to get to the car park but this is accessed by means of a narrow country lane with limited passing spaces. You may be better parking elsewhere and then walking to it. Ordnance Survey map advisable not stanav.
