Barnstaple's Blooming Beauty

Barnstaple's Blooming Beauty

Barnstaple is lovely at all times of year, but summer’s a real treat, when the hotel gardens and town parks burst into colour through annual bedding displays that typify quintessentially English Holidays.


There are few better ways to spend a summer’s day than to sit on a seat and watch the world go by.


Add an air of familiarity and a sigh of contentment can’t be far away.


Maybe a stroll around a horticultural haven like Rosemoor Gardens is more your style, enjoying a landscape designed  by Lady Berry in 1959 and now featuring over 2,000 types of roses and other specialist plants in a range of settings, including the deep rock gulley and stream ornamental gardens and the Alpine House.

Perhaps you prefer the sights of wide-open spaces, typified by Exmoor National Park, home to an abundance of wildlife, such as Exmoor Ponies and who knows you may be lucky enough to see the Red Deer that call the moor their home?


Enjoy expansive coastal views that glide by on a tour that passes North Devon’s favourite places such as Ilfracombe and Combe Martin.


Enjoy Barnstaple with its beautiful surrounding areas and take a visit to Castle Hill at Filleigh and enjoy a spot of lunch.

Whatever makes you shine, you’ll have a blooming marvellous time.
