Visit Nearby Barnstable
If you fancy venturing out and about during your stay at Ash Barton, the charming medieval town of Barnstaple is only a five-mile drive away and great for restaurants, pubs, cream teas and shopping. Wander around the independent boutiques, taste local produce at the Pannier Market, catch a movie at the cinema or see a live gig. Barnstaple is well known for its contemporary music scene.
There’s every type of menu to enjoy, from Thai, Chinese and Indian to good old British classics. And some of the town’s top restaurants can be found in Barnstaple’s historic buildings, which all adds to the atmosphere as you’re crunching on your prawn cracker.
