One of Britain's oldest towns, Barnstaple was minting its own coins as early as the 10th century. It lies in the Taw Valley and boasts a 16th century, 16-arch bridge spanning the river as well as some significant old buildings. A local museum is housed in a former grammar school dated to the 14th century.
Arlington Court is a Regency house, now run by the National Trust, set in a large estate. Inhabited until 1949 by the much-traveled spinster Rosalie Chichester, it is packed with
artefacts such as model ships, tapestries, pewter and shells. The stables contain one of the finest collections of 19th-century horse-drawn vehicles. Devon's largest colony of lesser horseshoe bats can be watched via a batcam. Nearby is Exmoor Zoological Park.
Here we try to offer a wide selection from budget to luxury hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfast, B&B accommodation suitable for holidays, vacations or business travellers in Barnstaple or surrounding areas.
