Around Minnows

Experience the rural charm of Mid Devon and the tranquil beauty of the Grand Western Canal, one of Devon’s secret gems. Whether you like fishing, walking, bird watching, cycling or canoeing you will be able to enjoy all of these from Minnows Touring Park and Affiliated Caravan Club Site, the only touring caravan park alongside the Grand Western Canal in Devon.

Should you choose to venture out with your car, a short drive will find you on Exmoor or in the Blackdown Hills, in the historic city of Exeter and port of Topsham, the market towns of Tiverton and Honiton or National Trust houses and gardens such as Knighthayes Court and Killerton House. Try a peaceful trip on the canal on the Horsedrawn Barge, winner of the 2011 BBC Countryfile photographic competition or visit the working wool museum at Coldharbour Mill with its steam driven looms.

There is so much to do and see from Minnows. Even the beaches of North and South Devon are less than an hour away, and at the end of the day stroll along the towpath to one of the pubs in the village for a meal and local ale.

Pitches & Facilities

Minnows Touring Park is part of the Caravan Club’s national network of sites and offers 59 all weather pitches set in five and a half landscaped acres alongside the towpath of the Grand Western Canal, and just a short stroll from the village of Sampford Peverell with historic church, 2 pubs, post office, Spar shop, farm shop, tennis courts, golf driving range and 9 hole golf course. The towpath is part of the Sustrans National Cycle Network with safe off road cycling for all the family.

Bicycle hire is available with bicycles delivered to and collected from the site. The towpath is also suitable for mobility scooters.

14 of our pitches are fully-serviced with fresh water connections and grey water drainage. A number of pitches are arranged around the children’s playground where children can play within sight of their parents.

The modern toilets and showers have full disabled facilities, a launderette, and washing-up and vegetable preparation rooms. We have our own landing stage for canoes and trailed boats and there is a nearby slipway for boat launching. Fishing and boating permits are available from reception.

A three bedroom holiday park home is available for weekly let during the season. For availability, booking and further information visit property reference W8372 at www.welcomecottages.co.uk
