Half term week is meant to be a relaxed affair, but predominantly ends up being manic and stressful. Thebestof Barnstaple aims to relieve a little of that pressure by suggesting just a few ideas to keep you going.
This half term holiday includes Halloween, so check out our blog on Halloween events taking place across North Devon. There are lots of spooky goings on to take advantage of and plenty of fun for one and all.
If peaceful and relaxed is what you are looking for then Lilico's Tapas Lounge & Bar is the place to go. Whether for a light, but sumptuous lunch or a beautiful evening meal then pop in. Centrally located in Barnstaple and serving authentic, cooked to order food, Lilico's atmosphere will take you to the Mediterrenean, even if it's just for one evening. For more information call on 01271 308086.
A sure failsafe, whatever the weather, is shopping in Barnstaple's diverse high street, where the Pannier Market can be found six days a week, Butcher's Row serves outstanding local products and as usual all the high street stores. The small alleys hold a wealth of local arts, crafts and many other treasures. Go on and treat yourselves!
