Find cottages in BarnstapleVisit Barnstaple

Barnstaple is an historic market town in north Devon with a mixture of Victorian and Georgian architecture, it's close to both lovely beaches and coastline as well as the Exmoor National Park.

The town itself is quite compact and due to its pedestrianised shopping streets, easy and safe to get around.

If you want to learn more about the town and area visit the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon and the Barnstaple Heritage Centre should be on your to do list. Walking tours are another good way of finding out more.

You can also step back in time at the Pannier Market, which was built in 1855 and remains beautifully preserved. It is home to a different market every day apart from Sundays. For example, Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays are a must for fresh locally produced food, plants and flowers and lots more. Wednesdays are great for antiques and collectables.

Surfers will want to head to Bucks Mill Beach and Croyde Beach, which have developed as popular surfing spots in recent years. The long, golden sands at Cryode Beach also make it an ideal spot for families.

The Tarka Trail is a number of cycle paths and footpaths that cover the route used by Tarka the Otter, from the classic book of the same name by Henry Williamson. The figure of eight route is centred on Barnstaple. It covers 180 miles and takes in various landscapes including sandy bays, moorland, river valleys, woodland and cliffs. Walking routes vary from easy to more strenuous and cycle paths are traffic free and largely level. Bike hire is available.

Holiday cottages in Barnstaple are ideal for walkers keen to explore the area's natural beauty and families will enjoy the nearby coastline.

Byre Cottage Ref: E3988

Set amidst tranquil Devon countryside, these attractive cottages boast outstanding views over a valley teeming with wildlife and shared enjoyment of an indoor swimming pool and children’s pool, open all year round and heated to around a delightful 30°C. A Jacuzzi and sauna offer an opportunity to relax and unwind whatever the season, whilst the 8 acres of shared grounds afford plenty of space for gentle strolls and picnics. There is also an all weather tennis court as well as a games room with pool table and table tennis and, for children, a large, outdoor play area. North Hill Cottages sit within a short drive of Devon’s famous golden coast – miles of sandy beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde, Putsborough, Westward Ho! and Saunton. These glorious beaches are a paradise for surfers of all ability levels, with boards, wetsuits and expert tuition available at most locations.
Just 3 miles away is Barnstaple, north Devon’s ancient capital whose charming blend of old and new combines a fascinating glimpse of times gone by with exciting browsing in the indoor Green Lane shopping centre, its Pannier Market and its theatre which is the centrepoint of the annual North Devon Festival. At the railway station, one can pick up the famous traffic free Tarka Trail and bicyle hire is available from Fremington Quay, just up river. Close by is Bideford, a historic fishing port and market town with steep, narrow medieval streets and a busy quay from where visitors can enjoy a two hour boat trip to Lundy Island. Also within easy reach is Braunton nature reserve, a beautiful ‘lunar landscape’ wilderness of sand dunes, noted for its rare and exotic plants.
Within easy reach are the glories of Exmoor National Park – among its numerous attractions are the charming coastal resorts of Lynton and Lynmouth, linked by a unique water-powered funicular cliff railway; the National Trust’s mesmerising Watersmeet – a woodland gorge with beautiful walks where the East Lyn River meets Hoaroak Water; Badgeworthy Water – the supposed hideout of the notorious ‘Doone’ family; Dunkery Hill – at 1705 ft, the highest point of the moor; and the ever popular town of Minehead – a traditional seaside resort and the start of the West Somerset Railway. There are splendid National Trust properties at Arlington Court, Dunster Castle and Knightshayes Court. This is wonderful walking country too. Magnificent views can be savoured amidst the tantalising beauty of Exmoor National Park and all along the North Devon Coastal Path. With its soaring cliffs, quaint harbours and long stretches of beach, almost entirely made up of designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, north Devon’s fabulous coastline is a joy to explore.

" Between coast and country ... a collection of designer cottages enjoying the best of both worlds "

Situated in a quiet and peaceful rural location on the edge of the pretty hamlet of Tawstock, these four attractive holiday cottages (refs HYA, HYB, HYC and HYD) are only 7 miles from the nearest beach at Instow and conveniently close to all facilities at Barnstaple. The properties have been converted from a range of old stone barns presented in a fresh contemporary style. With the owners living in the original farmhouse, they form part of the traditional farm courtyard, though Park Gate is no longer a working farm. Each holiday cottage is individual in design, well equipped and comfortable, with attractive furnishing fabrics and attention to detail. Each has patio doors from the living room leading to its own decked patio and lawned garden, perfect for al fresco meals while watching the sun set.
This is an excellent location for exploring the magnificent coastline of North Devon, from the ‘Golden Coast’ with fine sandy surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton, to the rugged cliffs of Hartland Point. The coastal footpath offers superb walking with wonderful views of the dramatic shoreline, while inland the wild beauty of Exmoor waits to be discovered. Bideford Bay takes in its sweep along Westward Ho!, Hartland Point and the beautiful village of Clovelly – much loved by photographers. Instow and the old ship-building port of Appledore shelter in the mouth of the Torridge Estuary, and regular boat trips to Lundy can be taken from Bideford. Casual cyclists who fancy a spin in the countryside under their own steam will appreciate the Tarka Trail, a popular flat route that is easy to manage and runs from Meeth near Okehampton; it winds its way to Braunton and can be picked up at Barnstaple, just 2 miles from the cottages. There are plenty of places to visit nearby, including a number of family attractions such as The Big Sheep, Funderzone and The Milky Way which have covered amusements for children of all ages. At Great Torrington, there are the famous and stunning RHS gardens at Rosemoor. Whilst there, it certainly worth a visit to the Dartington Crystal factory glass works (7 miles), where molten glass is expertly fashioned into unique works of art by the glass blowers. Horse riding, golf, surfing lessons and fishing can all be organised locally. The nearby town of Barnstaple offers good shops and restaurants, a weekly market and pannier market, theatre, cinema and sports facilities. Shops 2½ miles.

Sitting on the edge of the courtyard, stunning country views can be admired from Walnut. Patio doors, a double-aspect living room and full length windows in the spacious hallway impart a light and airy feel to this property. The decked patio and lawned garden are complemented by a separate fully enclosed area in which to house visitors’ pets.

Open-plan living/dining room with patio doors to decked patio. Modern kitchen. Cloakroom with toilet. First floor: Two bedrooms, each with sloping ceilings; one double with en-suite shower room and toilet, one twin with additional single bed (for +1). Bathroom with toilet.
