Clatworthy Reservoir is situated in the Brendon Hills, on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, in the west of Somerset. The reservoir was created in 1958 by impounding water from the River Tone by building a concrete dam across the valley.

The site is home to a variety of wildlife, including geese, grebes, swans, roe deer, red deer, and badgers. Clatworthy is popular with anglers who fish either from the banks or from a boat for brown and rainbow trout in the over one billion gallons of water the reservoir usually holds. Walkers can walk the perimeter of the reservoir in around three hours.
