The Grand Western Canal Country Park and Local Nature Reserve meanders through beautiful Mid Devon countryside and quiet villages between Tiverton and Lowdwells (near the Somerset border).

Extending for eleven and a quarter miles, the Country Park provides a wonderful location to enjoy a peaceful walk or cycle ride along the towpath; experience a ride onboard the much-loved horse-drawn barge that has been taking passengers for trips along the canal since 1974; have a go at fishing; launch your own boat or hire a boat or a canoe.
