Cream of North Devon

Picturesque North Devon has some of the most beautiful coastline in the British Isles, studded with tiny harbour-towns, quaint villages, excellent beaches and cliff-top walks, all designated as “an area of outstanding natural beauty”. North Devon is also bordered by the Exmoor National Park, renowned for its striking countryside, coastal views and herds of wild deer. Our base for this holiday is the ancient market town of Barnstaple, reputed to be one of the oldest boroughs in the United Kingdom, set on the banks of the River Taw.




Situated within walking distance of Barnstaple town centre, the stylish Park hotel has recently undergone a major refurbishment and now offers modern facilities with a cosmopolitan feel. All bedrooms are equipped with television, telephone, Wi-Fi, safe, hairdryer and tea / coffee making facilities. The hotel also features a brasserie restaurant and bar area. Lift to all floors.

Day One

We travel south to Devon and the Park Hotel in the town of Barnstaple where we stay for the next four nights


Day Two

Today we travel to Bideford, a pretty port town situated on the banks of the River Torridge. Wander through the historic port with its many unique shops and delightful cafes before paying a visit to Bideford’s Victorian Pannier Market. Bideford’s Pannier Market takes place every Tuesday and Saturday with a variety of stalls selling a range of locally sourced fresh fish, crafts and gifts. This afternoon we travel to nearby RHS Garden Rosemoor, an enchanting 65-acre garden nestled in a sheltered valley in between Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks. With many horticultural delights there is something for everyone to enjoy, including the largest rose garden in the South West, the mature Lady Anne’s Garden and award-winning Cool Garden. You will also be presented with a cream tea voucher which can be enjoyed at leisure either before or after you take a stroll around the gardens.

Day Three

We spend a morning exploring Barnstaple with its elegant Georgian buildings and historic pannier market. In the afternoon we visit the timeless traffic free village of Clovelly, built on a 400ft cliff with no access for modern transport. On arrival we see a film show of the history of the village at the visitor centre, then browse the shops and craft centre before strolling down the steep cobbled street with its flower-bedecked cottages and winding side-alleys to the ancient fishing harbour, visiting Kingsley Museum and Fisherman's Cottage along the way. (Please note if you do not wish to walk back up to the street a Land Rover service is available).

Day Four

This morning we visit the picturesque towns of Lynton and Lynmouth where you can take a ride on the water-powered lift that travels between the two historic towns, ascending from Lynmouth at the foot of the cliffs to Lynton perched some 500 feet above. From here we travel across the Exmoor National Park and visit the lovely village of Dunster with its castle and 17th century timber-framed market hall.
