Explore Barnstaple and the surrounding area

Sun, sea and scenery guaranteed to take your breath away, a holiday to North Devon is unlike any other.

North Devon is the perfect playground for doing what you love. Be it spending time with the loved ones, walking the coast path, eating out with friends, or exploring stunning local gardens. 

The untouched countryside paired with dramatic clifftop vistas steals the hearts of visitors time after time. Here at The Barnstaple Hotel, we're confident that you'll fall in love with the area too. 

If you’re looking to escape to the beach then you’ll be spoilt for choice - from dramatic cliffside walks to soaking up the sun on a sandy beach, the varied landscape of the North Devon coast means that there's a beach here for everyone. Discover charming Devon villages nestled in the rolling green hills, such as Clovelly, an impossibly pretty village with traffic-free cobbled streets tumbling down to the beautiful. If you enjoy a little history and stately elegance, walk hand in hand as you admire the many wonderful heritage sites and gardens including RHS Rosemoor. Plus, any Devon holiday would not be complete without a walk along the Tarka Trail. Stroll alongside the River Torridge enjoying unspoilt views over the countryside, or why not hire a bike or try your hand at horseback riding?

We’ll exceed your expectations - providing a home away from home. Whatever your interests, you will find there is a wealth of wonderful places within easy reach of The Barnstaple Hotel. You will also find that Barnstaple is a hub for local bus and train services if you’d prefer not to drive.
