Why stay here ...

Minnows Caravan Park is set in a charmingly intimate location, bordered by the Grand Western Canal Country Park and with scenic countryside views. The caravan park lies just to the north-east corner of Devon and has the delightful quality of a hidden gem that has been forgotten by the bustling world. It is centrally placed however, allowing easy access to the many attractions available in this popular holiday county.

Within comfortable reach of Exmoor, Dartmoor, the north and south coasts and Exeter, Minnows Caravan Park has plenty of fun activities to offer the whole family. For the keen angler, permits are available on site for the canal and walkers will be delighted by the 12 miles of scenic, leisurely walks to be had along the towpath - it is abundant with wild flowers and varied bird life. The National Cycle Route is also conveniently close to the caravan site, offering miles of easy to challenging cycling for enthusiasts. Other attractions nearby include a canoe or boat launch and golfers can enjoy evening driving ranges at the nearby floodlit course.

Excellent stay at Minnows

Just had 3 nights at Minnows and will definitely be back. Warm welcome by the friendly and very hard working wardens ( we were on pitch 2 near the reception and these guys don't stop, even after they've closed up they're still dealing with peoples' questions). Facilities block was well looked after, clean with good hot showers and had all you need. The location next to the canal however was the highlight, great for walking the dog, clean water and plenty of fish and birdlife and a 15 minute walk to the pub (dog friendly and fish & chips highly recommended). No problem with getting a good TV reception and the road noise was minimal in our opinion.

No tele signal

Clean site but very poor television reception Like most caravan and motorhome site lovely toilet block. Also nice walk along the near by canal. But other than that very quite boring site.

Fabulous

We just got home from a week here and were very sad to leave. A lovely welcome awaited us. We had a great pitch( no 33) backing onto the canal path ( accessed by a private gate on the site) huge grassy area for us to sit and the dogs to keep cool. Toilets and showers spotless. Lovely walks in either direction alongside the canal. Pub and shop in walking distance. A little road noise but it didn't bother us and it made life easier getting about being so close to a main road. Great position to visit Somerset and Dorset too.

Lovely canal walks

We only stayed here one night on our way to Cornwall,it is a nice site beautifully positioned next to the canal, which was great for walking our dogs. Nice clean facilities and friendly owner. We will hopefully be back again next year.

Easy to reach stopover.

Found the site easily, just off the M5. Clean and tidy, with friendly wardens. Pitch size good, with trees and picnic benches .Lovely walks along the towpath, with access from the site. Perfect for dog walking. Two pubs in the local village about a 10 min walk away, also a general store with a good range of provisions.
