Enchanting trip. Our club members were treated to a step-back in time of 200 years. Ross "the hoss" trundled along the towpaths while we enjoyed a tranquil trip in the sunshine. A family-run business, they were welcoming, informative and friendly. They clearly care about what they do and love their animals. The mindful moment of travelling a short distance in silence was quite magical. The only sounds being the water and the horses hooves. Highly recommended.

I have been on a few barge rides, but not on a horse-drawn barge before. The nearest experience I have had previously for quiet was a barge with an electric engine that is a lot quieter than the usual diesel. We arrived in good time to see if there were any spaces, as we had not booked. Fortunately, there were two cancellations, so we could get on. I would advise booking in advance; both the morning and afternoon trips were packed.
Paying for the trip at the kiosk was easy. Boarding was half an hour before start time. In the meantime there was plenty of time to watch the final preparation of the barge, including pushing it by pole across the canal from its berth on the far side to the wharf where boarding took place. You need strength to operate an unpowered barge! Phil, the skipper, made it look easy as he propelled it smoothly into precisely the correct position. The result of 35 years practise.
We were given an introductory talk with some background information and safety reminders, including the very important 'do not hang your arms down the outside of the boat, because if it grinds against the bank you lose an arm.' We were also introduced to the operating team, particularly Lauren, a young lass with great strength, who tows the barge, fully laden with passengers, into position when hitching the horse.
The journey is accompanied by occasional commentary from the skipper giving interesting information about the trip and the history of the canal. One lovely feature is when we are all asked to be silent for a few minutes, during which there is just the gentle swish of the water and quacking of ducks. A lovely reminder of how peaceful the waterways can be. Unfortunately, the ones near my home are too busy to be peaceful. This is a very quiet canal.
At the wharf there is a 'discovery centre' with pictures and writing about the history of the canal, which is well worth a visit. There are also eating facilities and picnic benches.
This is a little more expensive than some other attractions, but well worth the price. An excellent day out that will be remembered for the rest of my life.

Be aware that the row boats are not for hire due to shortage of staff. Shame that's not on the Web site, would have saved us a journey.

Firstly : We don't understand why Tripadvisor Allows is totally false information to be published ? 1. We do not have a shortage of staff. Person that hires the boats (From May to August) Is the same lady but runs our Horse-Drawn Barge ticket office and is employed Full-Time from April to October. 2. It very clearly states on our Website Our Rowing Boats are Open/Available: From End of May Bank Holiday, June, July and August. We cannot see anywhere on our website that says we offer rowing boats in September ? Please trip advisor, stop Making public totally false information.

We enjoyed a peaceful ride down the canal on the horse drawn barge. We were lucky enough to have Brynley pull the barge, who was just stunning. Phil was brilliant with the commentary.
There is a bar with every drink you could think of, ice cream and chocolate.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip

It is a very unique experience and definitely a trip to be recommended you can buy duck food and feed them on route
You can lots of wildlife on route but it is like going back in time and experiencing what it was like hundred of years ago
Everyone is very friendly and the horses are gorgeous
I like it when they ask everyone to be quiet for a couple of minutes and you just hear the clip clop of the horse and the birds and water lapping against the barge absolutely fantastic
Highly recommended

Ths really is a unique experience and the highlight of my holiday. It is a lovely leisurely way to travel with eye level views of the vegetation (which is much more interesting than it sounds!) with purple loosestrife, reeds, reed mace, bog bean, water lilies... Unfortunatley no kingfishers.

The best bit was the voluntary two minutes silence on the way back, when the only sound was the lapping of water against the barge, the sound of the wind in the reeds and the clip clop of the horses hooves. A never to be forgotten experience.

There was an interesting commentary covering the history of the canal and why canals were so important. A horse is able to pull 40 times more weight on water than it could on land! momentum keeps the boat moving and the heavier the cargo, the more forward momentum.

There is time to talk to the horse before the trip and at the turn round point. We were pulled by George, a lovely Welsh Cob .

A wonderful step back in time. We were lucky that the weather was good and it was so relaxing too. Such a beautiful canal - I loved the duck and swan food,and seeing how well all the wildfowl looked. They certainly don’t go hungry. The information on board was great, as was the hot chocolate. Totally recommend for a day out

We took my mom and dad along to this for his 80th birthday present.
Beautiful location, friendly, knowledgeable staff and lovely scenery along the way. Took the 2 and a half hour afternoon trip and it was so relaxing. There's a bar serving hot and cold drinks, alcoholic choices, snacks, ice-cream and the obligatory duck food. Toilet at the front so no worries there. Very peaceful trip one way, some commentary on the way back but they ask for a few minutes of pin drop silence to really appreciate the barge, horse and scenery.
Prices on board are that of a pub, so not the usual rip-off £9 a pint. At the halfway point you can disembark and hear a talk on the horses and get some great photos, before the return trip.

The horse drawn barge was very relaxing and beautifully helmed. The horses were clearly loved and cared for

This is a must do, a brilliant experience being pulled along the canal by one of these amazing horses. The staff were fantastic, so friendly, informative and entertaining. There are refreshments available on the boat or from another vessel which is solely used for that purpose moored just a few yards from the gift shop. If you require any further information about the canal there is a visitor centre. If you travelling to Tiverton by public transport, it is a 20-25 minute walk from the bus station, there are stairs/ramp from the main road to Canal Hill.
