Bideford, North Devon and the surrounds

You really don’t need to leave Redland House for the duration of your stay, or if you do you only need take a short stroll down the hill to Instow Village. 

However, there is so much in North Devon that it would be a shame to miss out so we have put together a brief guide to give you a flavour of what is at each nearby location.

View of Bideford Quay(3 miles from Redland House) 

Bideford is a working port and very different from Barnstaple with many more independent shops such as La Maison in Mill Street selling beautiful shabby chic homeware and jewellery, or Ashore in Cooper Street selling a beautiful range of gifts and jewellery.  There are also a number of antique shops. 

The Pannier Market is open on a Tuesday and Saturday morning at the top of the town and is worth a trek up the High Street.  Go before 12 as it packs up about 1pm. 

Velvet and VanillaThere are a couple of good places to go for something to eat in Bideford.  Lathwells in Cooper Street serves well prepared local food.  Velvet and Vanilla, also in Cooper Street is a funky coffee shop during the day and bistro at night.  Very girly, small but well worth a visit.
