New two, three and four-bedroom homes in Bideford, Devon, with fantastic access to the North Devon Coast and into Cornwall.
A new home at Abbotsham Park gives you a historic hometown with stunning riverside location. Pretty Bideford is home to a fantastic range of shops, schools, restaurants, bars and attractions, plus essential services including a hospital. It’s situated on the River Torridge, and the old quay at the heart of the town has a maritime heritage and a picturesque view. Today, it’s one of Bideford’s attractions, along with Victoria Park, Bideford Art Gallery and Museum, and the Pannier Market.
The A39 Atlantic Highway is a key route for the town, passing close to Abbotsham, so if you need to travel to Bude on the Devon/Cornwall border, to Barnstaple, or from there to Tiverton and the M5, a new home here is in a really convenient location. Meanwhile the fantastic coastal towns of Instow, Appledore, and Westward Ho! are all just minutes away, Abbotsham Park the perfect place for a work-life balance.
The Atlantic Highway is key to this area. From Bideford, it links with Barnstaple, and from there the A360 which is the direct connection with the M5. The A386 is the cross-country route from the town. It joins the A30 at Okehampton, and from there heads to Exeter and the M5. The closest train station is in Barnstaple, just over 7 miles away, offering services to Exeter Central.
You can walk from Abbotsham Park to Affinity Devon, a popular shopping outlet, and across the road from that is Atlantic Park. Between the two there are supermarkets and restaurants to choose from. In the town centre, you can browse the stalls in the Pannier Market for local produce, and there’s a balance of independent shops and national brands. There’s also a Tesco superstore across the river at East-The-Water.
The Burton Art Gallery and Museum in Victoria Park is a fantastic local asset for all ages. There’s a café there too, and the park has a wonderful open-air summer splash pool for young children. There are football, rugby and bowls clubs, and a purpose-built skate park. As for the local beaches, Westword Ho! is great for water sports, Appledore steps back in time with pretty cottages and tiny little lanes, and Instow has a beautiful sandy beach.
