DOUBLE FRONTED RETAIL UNIT ADJACENT TO TOWNS HIGH STREET

LOCATION
Geographically, Barnstaple sits on the banks of the River Taw near the North Devon coastline.  The area enjoys a unique topography with an extensive sandy beach coastline and close proximity to Exmoor National Park. Barnstaple has expanded from its market town origins, to become the area's Regional Centre.  Several national house builders are completing residential developments within the town and its suburbs.   Commercially the town contains many of the major national retailers and several edge of town developments have been completed.   The sustained wealth and growth of the area has been enhanced following the building of the A361 linking North Devon to the M5 at Tiverton.  The road network has been further enhanced by the construction of the downstream bridge at an estimated cost of £40m.
