Barnstaple and South Molton Cottages

The market town of Barnstaple is North Devon’s ancient capital. It has been many things in its long history, including: wool trading port, pottery capital, plasterwork centre of excellence and furniture town. These things may be long gone but the artefacts remain: fine plaster ceilings, Barumware pottery and a local museum brimming with precious items. It’s a great day out and also a great base for your next Devon holiday.

The town’s high street has all the big names but the pannier market is where it’s at. Shop the old fashioned way and find the time to meet local farmers selling their excess produce or local growers offering a taste of the best of North Devon. Together with the nearby foodie honey pot that is Butcher’s Row, Barnstaple is the centre for fabulous, fresh and local stuff to eat.

Come evening time there’s plenty to tempt you out of your cosy Devon holiday cottage. Take in a show at the Queen’s Theatre, catch a gig at The Factory, watch a movie, dine on tapas, Italian, Mexican (and anything else you fancy). It’s all here.

Further down the River Taw brings you to the confluence of the Taw and Torridge, North Devon’s mighty estuary. The rivers empty into Bideford Bay between the beaches at Westward Ho! and Saunton Sands, meaning you’ve got a lot of choice when it comes to the seaside if you base your holiday in the Taw Valley. North of the rivers lie the sands of Croyde and Woolacombe, while the southern bank offers a wilder, more deserted experience, with coastal walks, hidden valleys and empty coves.

Walking boots or bucket and spade? It’s up to you how you spend your next holiday in Devon.
