Our Luxury Barnstaple Bed and Breakfast
Welcome to No 2 Broadgate. A luxury bed and breakfast in Barnstaple. Our B&B is tucked away in a quiet hidden courtyard in Pilton and has stunning uninterrupted views over the town. Our unusual home in North Devon forms part of a stunning and rather grand old Georgian house (see image below), in the delightful, historic Saxon Burh of Pilton. The guest house is full of beautiful period features such as high ceilings and arched windows. It is Grade II listed and was built in 1611 by Lord Parminter, who was a renowned wealthy shipping merchant and local landowner of this time.
This delightful bed and breakfast dominates the Barnstaple skyline as it has for over 400 years. The B&B itself faces due south, which as a result allows the house to be flooded with natural light and warmth all year round.
The location of this Barnstaple Bed and Breakfast is situated most conveniently for access to the town, however, it is just far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle.
It is a short scenic walk to the High Street, via the narrow cobbled pathways, that weave their way past Pilton Church and other notable landmarks.
The 12th century Pilton Priory, Bull Hill House and its adjoining Alms houses, are all great examples of Pilton’s history and as a consequence, it’s beauty.
In addition, the Bed and Breakfast is less than half a mile from the popular Tarka Trail and South West coast path. The coast path stretches for miles in either direction of Barnstaple and is famous for its spectacular scenery and backdrops.
The guest rooms of this boutique bed and breakfast in Barnstaple, have unusual pieces of furniture and quirky artwork and artifacts, that have been collected by us during our travels. As a result we hope this makes this beautiful home a gracious, but, informal and interesting B&B for you. This elegant accommodation is tastefully and luxuriously furnished.
Probably the best place we've stayed.We were blown away as soon as Jane opened the door. Such a friendly and welcoming lady. The room was just as beautiful as the pictures on the website which is often not the case. Lovely tall ceilings with plenty of period features. Large comfy bed with super soft sheets and probably the most comfy pillows and mattress we've ever slept on. The roll top bath made it an excellent experience with great views out over the garden and Barnstable. High quality and toiletries and super soft towels. Breakfast was superb, lovey setting, lovely dining area and excellent food with plenty of choice. Thank you Jane for a lovely start to our break. We would not hesitate to come back. 13 June 2016
Outstanding boutique B&B in a great location.Superb boutique B&B. A beautifully renovated old house in a great location with stunning views across Barnstaple and the river. The room and bathroom were tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean with the unexpected bonus of a lounge area with wide screen TV. Jane was very welcoming and a lovely breakfast was served in a spacious dining room overlooking the gardens. The dining room even featured a number of Damien Hirst original artworks!!! Overall superb. Will definitely stay again.15 August 2016
