Things to Do in North Devon

Barnstaple is not only at the heart of North Devon, but it’s in the centre of The North Devon Biosphere; the first Biosphere in the UK to be designated by UNESCO and we’re only a short distance to the North Devon Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  The landscape varies from wild coastal cliffs, spectacular waterfalls and rocky coves to sand dunes and beaches, wooded combes and valleys with picturesque villages.

We’ve taken the time to outline some of the great things to see and do whilst you are staying in North Devon “Britain’s Adventure Coast”.  We have lots of maps and bus timetables for guests to borrow and Bryan is a font of local knowledge on where to go and what to do to, whatever the weather!
