Many of Devon’s attractions are located within easy driving distance of Barnstaple, so it is a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. Two attractions that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Pannier Market and the much-loved Arlington Court. If you have time, don’t miss the St. Hieritha's Church and Saunton Sands.
If you are into nature, plan a trip to the nearby green spaces. These are good spots to relax. Walk along the most popular coastal spots nearby such as Croyde Bay in Ilfracombe, Woolacombe Beach and Barricane Beach. Have a break in one of the local parks and gardens, which include the RHS Garden Rosemoor in Torrington.
After a long day enjoying Barnstaple, rest up in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep be sure to check out the Cedars Inn, the Rainbow Ridge Guest House, Ilfracombe, and the Royal Hotel Woolacombe.
