Tiverton, a busy town in the Mid Devon countryside offers easy access for exploring both coasts of the county, its moors, national parks and cities.
In the beautiful Exe Valley, set on the two rivers The Lowman and the Exe, this town was originally named ‘Twyfyrde’ meaning ‘the town of two fords’. It originally built its fortunes on the lace and wool trade and has continued to evolve and prosper, with many new developments continually taking place.
Just outside the town lies The Grand Western Canal, originally built in 1814 to transport limestone from local quarries to Tiverton and now provides fantastic days out. Walk or cycle its tow paths, take a trip on a horse drawn barge or explore its country park: a nature reserve featuring 11 miles of unspoilt waterways and a natural habitat to an abundance of wildlife.
There are many interesting places of interest to visit in and around Tiverton, in particular for those keen to learn more about the town’s history, Tiverton Castle, Bickleigh Court and the National Trust property, Knighthayes Court are all worth a visit.
Tiverton’s central location makes it ideal holiday destination for those wishing to explore the county of Devon. Excellent road and transport links provide easy access to both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Park, the two cities, Exeter and Plymouth as well as the coast.
