Seasonal Special Offers & Short Breaks


We are all enduring the impact of the Covid-19 virus. Our condolences and best wishes go out to those of you who have suffered the loss of friends and family members.

We have been working hard at West Down Guest House during the pandemic lockdowns to prepare for our reopening. We have followed the guidance from the AA and Visit England organisations and are proud to have obtained their certificates of compliance and readiness.

We are confident that we are providing a safe environment for our guests and are following current government guidance.

We are pleased to offer a series of seasonal bargain breaks and special offers throughout the year to tempt you to visit our B&B Guest House holiday accommodation in Barnstaple, North Devon.

Each season brings its character and charm to this part of the West Country. The South West Coastal Path and Exmoor National Park in particular mirror the changes in the season with vibrant colour and shades emphasised by the change in light levels. Walkers, golfers and other outdoor pursuit enthusiasts enjoy the facilities and features that North Devon has to offer, no matter what the season. There is a vast range of attractions such as National Trust locations, indoor markets including Barnstaple Pannier Market and gardens to explore.

A particular feature of West Down Guest House is the warm welcome that you receive from Roger and Brenda when returning to your bed and breakfast holiday accommodation after your day exploring the wonders of the North Devon area. This is especially true in Autumn and Winter when the warmth of West Down, the excellent guest house accommodation and the award winning food are particularly welcome.

Spring / Summer 2021 One Week Special Offer in AA Covid-Confident Accommodation

Treat yourself to a Spring / Summer one-week holiday in our B&B Guest House in Barnstaple North Devon. These holidays are particularly popular in spring and early summer when the hedgerows burst into life with snowdrops, crocuses and bluebells. Exmoor and Dartmoor shrug off winter chill and make them an excellent choice for walks and rambles in the spring mists.

The South West Coastal Path and coastal towns such as Lynton and Lynmouth, Ilfracombe, Instow, Appledore and Clovelly are worth a summer visit. You might be fortunate and witness the unloading of a catch of freshly caught crab and lobster from the seas around Lundy Island which was England’s first statutory Marine Conservation Zone.

Local  towns and villages such as Barnstaple, Bideford, Torrington and South Molton with their pannier markets and small speciality shops make great hunting grounds for that special Christmas present or piece of occasional furniture.
