WELCOME TO OUR BED AND BREAKFAST BARNSTAPLE
Broadgate House 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.
No2 Broadgate is a wonderful Jacobean house, which commands stunning views over the leafy gardens. In addition, it has the most lovely views which stretch over 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.
"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."
