The views from the cottage were lovely. People friendly and the pool clean. The only downside was the cottage needs a bit of work doing. Eg upgrading. Tv tiny and furniture very dated. Damp smell to cottage as well. Sadly i wouldnt return.

How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 90.0 km
Railway: Barnstaple: 8.0 km
Leave the M5 at Junction 27 and follow the A361 to Barnstaple.

When you approach Barnstaple there are two options to get to North Hill.

Option 1 takes you through Barnstaple which can be very busy at peak times with slow moving traffic. This is the route if you want to visit Tesco or shops on the way in.

Option 2 bypasses Barnstaple and is recommended if you don’t want shops.

Option 1

As you approach Barnstaple turn right at the roundabout sign-posted A39 to Lynton and the Hospital. 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...
