About the neighbourhood
With so much to see and do in North Devon, you will be spoilt for choice. Discover fun filled days that will keep you and your little ones entertained and fascinated for hours on end. Whatever the weather there is an attraction or activity to suit, and plenty of retail therapy in our market towns. Whether you want to explore the coast or enjoy the best local food and drink North Devon has to offer, your journey starts here. Barnstaple is the oldest borough in the country and is the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. A must visit for anyone seeking serious retail therapy.

Follow signs to the Hospital which involves several roundabouts with right turns. Proceed until you see the hospital on your right and go straight through the lights. At this point I would recommend you switch off the SatNav as it will not take you to North Hill despite you having entered the right postcod...
