Make memories on your family holiday

Spend quality time together

The Royal & Fortescue Hotel in Barnstaple is in a tremendous location for a luxury family break in North Devon. The location in the centre of Barnstaple means there is plenty to do for both adults and children. And you are only a short drive from the North Devon coast, with its sensational golden beaches at Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands, as well as within easy reach of Exmoor National Park and many other family attractions, including the family theme parks the Milky Way and the BIG Sheep.

Close to Barnstaple, you will be spoilt for choice between all the sensational family activities on offer.  Why not try your hand at surfing, body boarding, horse riding, angling, skating, cycling, or ten pin bowling?   Or maybe explore the quaint fishing villages of Clovelly and Appledore or take a boat trip to Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel.
