Features and description

Situated in a busy High Street trading location close to Iceland, opposite Primark also adjoining The Cork & Bottle Public House and is therefore ideally placed for passing trade.

Nearby is Green Lanes Shopping Centre and all High Street shops and amenities being on hand.

A few hundred yards away the Cattle Market Public Car Park is one of the largest public car parks in the town and is accessed off Tuly Street and Gammon Walk.

Barnstaple has recently benefitted from the government town centre investment scheme which has enabled the North Devon Council to put forward plans to enhance Butchers Row and the Pannier Market which is envisaged will increase pedestrian flow into the town centre.

Barnstaple has a population of around 35,000 inhabitants plus the surrounding rural hinterland of about 127,000 inhabitants.

It is the main commercial hub of North Devon offering a large and diverse assortment of local and national retailers.

The town also has a theatre, cinema and leisure centre.

There are good road links via the North Devon Link Road to junction 27 of the M5 Motorway and the town has a regional railway station connecting to the national branch line at Exeter.
