    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...

We came here for a week with our baby, it was exactly what we were looking for. Lovely bathroom, nice living room, room for a travel cot in the bedroom. Beautiful views and countryside. Handy for Barnstaple and Saunton Sands etc. Didn't mind paying for the hot tub too much but would have been better to have been told in... more

Nice basic accommodation, clean and equipped with all that was needed. Swimming pool lovely as was the hot tub, but thought it disappointing that you had to pay to use the sauna and likewise if you wanted bubbles in the hot tub. Found that everything outside the cottage cost extra which, having paid over £500 for the week was rather... more

Management response:

Thank you for the review and rating and we are pleased you enjoyed the facilities at North Hill. I am sorry you felt that you should not be charged for using the Sauna (£1 for 20 mins coin operated) and the hot tub. The hot tub can be used without cost. We feel these small additional costs are justified where... more

There are some good eateries in the area but also a couple of good farm shops if you like to do your own thing Waytown farm shop just... more
