The Outdoor Life

Langport’s stretch of the River Parrett offers ideal conditions for fun on and off the water, with delightful footpaths linking the midsection of the River Parrett Trail.
Our beautiful river is more active than it’s been for over a century. You can launch your own craft, hire canoes, kayaks and paddleboards, or take a leisurely scenic trip on the Duchess of Cocklemoor (a restored River Dart ferry). There are modern pontoons for mooring to and swimming from and, if you are an angler, you can cast a line from new fishing platforms and accessible riverbanks. Along the riverbank there are picnic areas and fitness apparatus, with interpretation boards crammed with fascinating information about this unique countryside.
