The small but busy little town of Bideford is the ideal base from which to explore North Devon. Picturesque coastal villages, cliff walks (South West Coast Path) and extensive sandy surfing beaches are all on the doorstep. A scenic 30 mile stretch of the Tarka Trail, which avoids traffic completely, starts within 2 minutes walk of the house-this is popular with both walkers and cyclists throughout the year. Bideford provides everything for your everyday needs. There are many independent shops, cafes and restaurants, a pannier market, an art gallery/museum, quayside walks and a shady park, in which to enjoy the delicious locally-made ice-cream! Having a view, we are naturally on a hill - there is a flight of stone steps taking you from the riverside road to the house, or you can take the road route and wind your way up the hill. Either way, you are no more than a ten minute walk from the town. If you don't fancy the walk, there is plenty of parking on the quayside and at the edge of the park on the opposite side of the river.
The area also boasts two renowned links golf courses at Royal North Devon and Saunton. There are tennis centres at Bideford and Barnstaple. Cycles are available for hire in Bideford. The stunning gardens at RHS Rosemoor are just 6 miles away.
