The bustle of Barnstaple

Barnstaple or Barum as it was once known but still referred to lovingly by locals, steeped in history, Barnstaple is believed to be the oldest borough in the country dating back to the 900’s, and was once the main port in the west country.
Barnstaple is now the economic centre of North Devon, with its vibrant town centre that hosts an array of nationally recognisable brands, as well as remaining true to roots with a wealth of boutique shops and its historic and still extremely popular pannier market and butchers row, that show case locally sourced produce.
The train station and North Devon link road allow easy access to the M5 and Exeter via the scenic routes as they wind through the picturesque rolling countryside.
Barnstaple has numerous popular amateur sporting clubs including Barnstaple AFC, Barnstaple RFC, the nationally renowned Tarka Tennis centre as well as a running club, boxing club and bowl club to name a few.
