Quality Time

The Imperial Hotel in Barnstaple is ideal for a luxury family break in North Devon. It is a traditional luxury hotel and the setting in this large market town means there is a great choice of activities close at hand for adults and children alike. Guests are welcome to use all the facilities at the Barnstaple Hotel, which include indoor and outdoor pools as well as a fitness suite. 

You are close to the North Devon coast, with its amazing golden sands at Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Croyde, as well as to Exmoor National Park and many other family attractions, including the fun theme parks the Milky Way and the BIG Sheep. The quaint villages of Clovelly and Appledore are within easy reach and there are plenty of other activities nearby to keep everyone in the family entertained. Fishing, surfing, horse riding, cycling and walking on the Tarka Trail – the choices are endless.

Some of the luxury rooms at our 4 Star hotel are interconnecting or can take an extra bed and we also have two family rooms which include a separate adjacent bedroom for a child. You can choose between dining in the Arlington Restaurant or the more informal bistro. In both, you will find that our Children's Menu is imaginative and varied. Families love the warm, welcoming atmosphere that we create for all our guests
