Bideford is a lovely old town, situated on the banks of the Torridge River in North Devon. It is the perfect location from which to explore everything this beautiful and historic region has to offer.

A great variety of shops crowd the charming lanes in the town centre, vying for space with the many welcoming cafes - both artisan and traditional - that serve delicious food and the best coffee in the county. For those who take their retail therapy seriously, there is an Atlantic Village Outlet just a short drive away, while traditionalists will delight in the wares on offer at the regular craft and produce markets that attract visitors from miles around.

The refurbished quay is a delightful place to take a stroll, and children will hanker to hop on one of the boat trips to nearby Lundy Island that depart a regular basis. Victoria Park is a family friendly area, with a great mix of play equipment and a popular splash pool. Keen hikers will rejoice in the mile upon mile of stunning countryside to be found on Exmouth Moor, and the starting point of the renowned Tarka Trail is in easy reach.
