Welcome to north Devon's main town and our featured Barnstaple holiday cottages - perfect for year round breaks for families and couples alike.
Once a 17th Century port, call into the Heritage Centre down on the quayside or join a guided walk and learn about Barnstaple's colourful past. Discover Norman fortifications, original desks in the 16th Century grammar school and the wonderful Pannier Market, the region's biggest and hosting different stalls daily (exc. Sunday) - browse antiques, sample local delicacies or splash out on a piece of local art.
On the subject of art, the Broomhill Sculpture Garden features around 300 creations by over 60 artists while there are ten galleries at the Museum of Barnstaple & North Devon, next to Long Bridge.
Shop 'til you drop when you book a rental cottage in Barnstaple! The centre's pedestrianised streets and shopping arcades bulge with high street names and local independents, while on the outskirts of town are the usual supermarkets and other big retailers.
Hire a bike and peddle the Tarka Trail. Walk the Macmillan Way West or along the coastal path to Bideford (11 miles) or Croyde (14 miles). Or stretch your legs around the sweetly-scented flowerbeds of Marwood Hill Gardens. Add ten-pin bowling, ice-skating, go-karts, driving range, not forgetting theatre, cinema, nightclubs and a whole stack of places to eat and drink.
Or why not book a cottage holiday to Barnstaple to tie in with one of its annual events? From Grand Prix and Fringe Theatrefest to Fireworks Extravaganza at New Year, you'll have a ball!
