WELCOME TO OUR BED AND BREAKFAST BARNSTAPLE


* WINTER OFFER - £10 discount on all rooms booked through this website for dates between 1/11/17 - 28/2/18 *



No 2 Broadgate is a stunning bed and breakfast on the outskirts of Barnstaple, situated in the historic Saxon burh of Pilton.

This beautiful 17th Century, grade II listed guesthouse, is only half a mile from the town centre. The property is hidden away behind a high stone wall and secluded courtyard.

It is a wonderful Jacobean house, which commands stunning views. These views stretch over the leafy gardens, the town and the beautiful North Devon countryside beyond.

We are so lucky to have such a tranquil and quiet setting for welcoming our guests. It's close to all the amenities of the town, without the hustle and bustle and traffic noise.

Once you have escaped the outside world through the old coaching gates, you are transported into a haven of luxury and tranquillity. Our aim is to pamper and indulge, and with our three sumptuous bedrooms, we hope you will find this in abundance.

WHAT THE TELEGRAPH SAID ABOUT OUR B&B

"The luxurious, vintage style of this 17th-century B&B combined with delicious breakfasts and expert hospitality exceed expectations. Three beautifully decorated Georgian rooms are the perfect setting for peaceful, sophisticated and romantic getaways."

"10 / 10 VALUE FOR MONEY - By far the best rooms in Barnstaple."Anna Turns, travel writer The Telegraph

TESTIMONIALS


  • We stayed at no 2 Broadgate last weekend. Jane and Ivan were so lovely and made sure our stay was simply perfect. The room was delightful and the breakfast is so tasty. In fact this is probably the best accommodation we have stayed at in a long time. It ticked all the boxes. Thank you

    THE MOST AMAZING STAY CLARA – MAY 2017
  • An absolute gem! Why pay to stop in a hotel when you can enjoy this B&B. From the text message with directions, the warm welcome by Jane on arrival and to feel welcomed into her home is just a lovely personal touch. The house is stunning, so lovely decorated and just immaculate. The bedroom is huge and the bathroom isn’t much smaller! The bed is so comfortable and had one of the best nights sleep.

    STUNNING CRAIG B – JUNE 2017
  • Jane’s warm, open personality and great conversation made for a very enjoyable stay. She has created a beautiful home that stylishly celebrates the period features of the house. Breakfast is delicious, rooms spacious and comfortable, location great for Barnstable, coast and beaches. Thank you

    A DELIGHT CHRIS & DEBS – MAY 2017
  • No. 2 Broadgate is a beautifully spacious and decorated luxury B&B, and perfect for couples. The key points are that it is immaculately clean, the mattresses are superbly comfortable, the bedroom and bathroom are huge and ornately decorated, and great wifi. It has the most tasteful upmarket fittings in the bathroom (bath and separate shower), with an impressive array of soaps, lotions, and potions. It is situated in an incredibly quiet area, and there are no issues with parking. The landlady Jane is delightful and the breakfasts superb. Ideal B&B for the discerning traveler or tourist.

    EXCEPTIONAL ROGER W – JUNE 2017
  • This renovated multi-room house is luxurious. The hostess is passionate about being the best and in all aspects achieves it. Our room was very large with a very large ensuite, tastefully decorated and filled with interesting things like catchy books, great soaps and an old fashioned bathtub (but modern). The views across the city great. Excellent flexing breakfast. Recommended.

    TOP OF THE B&B MARKET RICHARD B - JULY 2017
  • 10/10. We stayed at this guest house last night and it could not have been any better. We got into such a deep conversation with the hostess that we forgot to exchange names
    Could not recommend this place more. The rooms are even nicer then the pictures show. Definitely staying here again in the near future, or whenever we're next in Barnstaple.
    Thank you so much for your hospitality. 5star plus

  • This was by far, one of the most amazing and stunning locations I have stayed in. As an Area Trainer, traveling and overnight stays is a regular occurrence. No2 Broadgate is by far, one of the best I have experienced. Exceeding my expectations and the hygiene & comfort standards are what you would expect to see in a 5+ star hotel by far. Just superb!
