Barnstaple is a charming town that sits just off the North Devon coastline. The town has retained a medieval character that can be seen in its historic bridges, but has also developed all the modern amenities that you could want. The covered Pannier Market right in the heart of Barnstaple town centre has a great choice of fresh, local produce and hand-crafted goods. The Barnstaple Museum is unmissable if you’re interested in local history and the Queen’s Theatre is the town’s cultural hub. Just out of town, the Broomhill Art Hotel is the place to visit for an award-winning meal and a look around their fantastic sculpture garden.
At the confluence of the River Taw and just 25 minutes from the coast itself, Barnstaple is ideal if you love spending time in nature. The Heddon Valley is a local favourite and provides beautiful walks along a river that lead to the beach itself. A little further afield is the stunning scenery and rugged trails of the Exmoor National Park. Barnstaple sits on the Tarka railway line that goes direct to Exeter. However it is less well connected by road, so if you’re moving in the area make sure you find a local expert moving company with reallymoving.
