If you want to be near the hospital you may want to look at the area of Pilton for accommodation. It used to be a village separate to Barnstaple but has now been subsumed in to the town, but still has a village feel to it.

In the UK you will usually have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy with a fixed 6 month term, which usually "rolls over" in to a month-by-month periodic tenancy so you can try any of the local agents or landlords for rentals.

Try the North Devon Journal (www.thisisnorthdevon.co.uk) and the North Devon Gazzette for rentals. Also www.rightmove.co.uk.

Local agents include Anthony Turners, Midwinter Koval, Webbers (Barnstaple office), John Smales, Wrights and so forth. Alternately have a look at the sheet 'Finding Accommodation' on this page:

northdevon.gov.uk/index/lgcl_housing/lgcl_ho…

There is plenty to do in Barnstaple and the North Devon area, particularly if you like the countryside and beaches. What sort of things do you like to do?
