Bickleigh is a small picturesque village on the banks of the River Exe, in the Exe Valley in Devon home to over 240 people. This charming village has a peppering of thatched cottages, a Railway Museum in the grounds of the old Railway Station complete with train rides, and even an ancient bridge that dates back many centuries which inspired Paul Simon to write that haunting melody íBridge over troubled watersí. There is a buffet of delights waiting for those who visit, whether itís history at Buckland Abbey which will be hard to resist, dating back 700 years and was home to Sir Francis Drake, or how about the Medieval masterpiece of Cotehele House, which showcases intricate tapestries worked by delicate fingers. Museum lovers stand by for a link with the past at Tiverton Museum with interesting exhibits from a Merchants House, Anderson Shelter and agricultural tools on display. Or maybe the thought of shopping in an attractive converted Watermill will tempt a visit to Bickleigh Mill. Or perhaps the Grand Western Canal Country Park and Nature Reserve will grant three wishes, whether itís a gentle stroll along the tow path, fishing, or of course the pleasing experience of sailing in a Horse drawn Barge
