Minnows Touring Park, Beside the Grand Western Canal

Fishing, Cycling, Canal Walks
Childrens Play Area
Facilities for the Disabled
Easy to Find ? Central for Touring

Welcome to Minnows, a small and intimate touring park beside the Grand Western Canal. Ideal for those who enjoy walking, cycling and fishing, or as a convenient centre for touring .

Set in five and a half acres, and just a short stroll from the village of Sampford Peverell, Minnows offers 45 landscaped pitches of which thirty-four have all weather surfaces - ideal for motor vans, and late and early season touring.

There is a family enclosure with 12 extra width hardstanding and grass pitches where children can play safely and make friends, an adjacent playground with swings and climbing frame, and a meadow for ball games and kite flying.

The modern heated toilet, shower and utility block has constant hot water for which there is no additional charge, and a disabled room with baby changing facilities. There is a covered washing-up and vegetable preparation room and the laundrette is equipped with a modern commercial front-loading washing machine and tumble dryer, a hand-washing sink and spin dryer. An ironing board and free electric points are provided for you to use with your own iron.

The on-site tourist information centre carries a wide range of information on walks, cycle routes, fishing and a host of local attractions, pubs and places to eat.

A three bedroom holiday park home is available for weekly letting during the season and further details are available by visiting www.welcome2004.co.uk and going to Property Reference W8372.

Minnows is conveniently located in open countryside just ? mile from Junction 27 of the M5. With easy road access, the surfing beaches of the North Coast, the sheltered South Coast resorts, Exmoor and Dartmoor, the Somerset Levels and Blackdown Hills, are all within easy reach by car.

Alternatively, why not abandon the car and enjoy the walks and cycle routes from the site. The Grand Western Canal is just the other side of the hedge and the park has its own access gate directly onto the towpath. The Grand Western Canal provides miles of level walking through the Mid Devon countryside and abounds with wild flowers and bird life. Seven miles west to Tiverton or 5 miles east to the end of the navigable section on the Devon border, the walk continues 12 miles into Somerset following the course of the canal and tracing its history all the way to Taunton where it once connected to the Taunton and Bridgewater Canal.

For cyclists, the canal towpath is part of The West Country Cycle Way (Sustrans National Cycle Route) ? safe off road cycling for all the family. For the more adventurous try the circular routes from the canal into the Mid Devon countryside and villages, including the Exe Valley, Lowman Valley, Culm Valley and Blackdown Hills. All accessable by bicycle from the site.

If all that sounds too energetic, how about an evening stroll to the pub for a drink and a meal. The village is just 15 minutes walk along the towpath with 2 pubs and a hotel to choose from. The village also has a post office, an excellent farm shop, tennis courts and a golf driving range. Buses run from the village to Tiverton every hour.

Fishermen will enjoy the excellent coarse fishing on the canal, famous for its Tench and there are also many good fishing lakes and ponds close by not to mention fly fishing on the River Exe.

The canal also offers a safe environment for family canoeing and boating with a launching slip nearby. Fishing and boating permits can be obtained from the park Reception Office.
