    We just missed a trip on the horse drawn barge so took a walk along the canal. Very pleasant and peaceful. The tow path is well used by walker and cyclists and dog walkers Read full review

    Good place to walk or cycle all year round. Easy going and peaceful. Refreshment available in the "on season months" and horse drawn barge meander as well. Tranquility just outside the town. Read full review

    An interesting insight into the world of barges and the shire horses that powered the canal traffic. A nice way to spend a leisurely couple of hours in the Somerset countryside. Read full review
