    Great spot by the canal. Lovely and quiet with the occasional train but they didn’t disturb us. No litter and no one else there overnight. A few fishermen in the morning but plenty of space for everyone. The road to the car park is mainly single track with passing places but quite doable. The nearest pub is about a 30 min walk away along the canal.

    We stayed here last Saturday night and were the only ones. It is a great location, as it’s immediately beside the canal and perfect to walk the dogs in the morning. The only downside was that there are train lines very close by. You could hear them running until midnight and from 8 am. We did do a mini litter pick before we left

    This is the only car park on the Bridgwater and Taunton canal that doesn't get locked at 6pm or something, so if you want to walk the dogs in the evening it's the only hope. If you keep parking here they'll probably put a gate on this one too.

    Lovely location tucked away just beside canal, however once another van left. We moved to where they were as was more hidden parking space. They came back and accused us of steeling as they lost something in the middle of the night. And though we took it as we parked where they were before leaving. Getting very angry and abusive. So we moved on before they came back.

    Wir haben hier direkt neben dem Kanal eine sehr ruhige Nacht verbracht. Morgens kamen Angler und Spazierer.

    Quiet but quite clearly not on the weekend. Rubbish left strewn around, mostly beer bottles and cans. Good for a stop over on route North/South though.
