Walk the Tarka Trail
The Tarka Trail, which runs through the key points of North Devon to the popular village of Braunton before becoming the South West Coast Path to reach the sea, is always a key focal point of breaks in the area.
Named after the stories of Tarka the Otter, the trail passes through Barnstaple and is just a few steps away from our hotels in the town.
