North Devon Location

North Devon is an ideal location for your training, offering the ability to enjoy the most active of weekends as well as the most relaxing of days.

For those who like to get out and about there is a wealth of golden beaches, safe bathing waters, the chance to go horse riding and some spectacular walks along glorious coastlines that offer some of the best surfing in the country.But the region has also been voted among the top three most tranquil areas in England with top quality fishing, sailing, and golf.

For the arts, theatre and live music there is the Queen's Theatre in Barnstaple, the Landmark Theatre at Ilfracombe and the Plough Arts Centre in Torrington. Local arts festivals and literary events are widespread throughout the region and the year.

Or you can take a visit to Exmoor, 267 square miles of heather-filled moorland packed with wild red deer, ponies, tucked away inns and picturesque villages.

Barnstaple is the unofficial but beautiful ‘capital’ of North Devon. Set on the Taw Estuary, shopping is a genuine pleasure. The traditional Pannier Market, filled with different produce each and every day, sits comfortably next to the modern Green Lanes Shopping Centre with its wealth of big name stores. The wonderfully individual Butchers Row is also well worth a visit with its collection of open-fronted Victorian shops.
