You can hire a Duet Wheelchair Tandem at Bideford Bicycle Hire. The Tarka Trail is a lovely scenic ride from Bideford to Instow and Fremington Quay and fairly flat too. There is a disabled toilet at Instow carpark.

Cafe du Parc provides an authentic taste of France in small town north Devon. French chef/proprietor Joe Monterieux serves classic lunches, to die for patisseries, & featherlight crepes at very reasonable prices - around £10 for light lunch option plus something sweet & coffee. Rather more if you opt for wine, glass or bottle, or beer. The Cafe is very child friendly - the spacious Victoria park on the banks of the Torridge is just outside with a convenient car park twixt river & park. Take in a culture break too in the Burton Gallery with its changing exhibitions & permanent ceramics display upstairs. For music buffs there are occasional jazz lunches, mid-week or Sundays for which pre-booking is essential since they are popular with us locals.
Cafe du Parc, Burton Art Gallery, Bideford, Devon, EX39 2QQ.
Nearest station: Barnstaple; buses to Bideford with stop outside the gallery.
South of Bideford on the other side of Clovelly is this dramatic coastal location with its lighthouse, beautiful cliff-top paths and a small shipwreck museum!
Join the A39 from Bideford heading south until you see the turning for Hartland Point
Meadow Park is on the outskirts of the village of Buckland Brewer. It is a beautiful bungalow built by its owners 10 years ago and it has panoramic views over its own farmland towards the distant hills of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Everything is spotless and of a high standard but the main attraction is the peace and quiet.
It's handy for Bideford and Clovelly and the R.H.S. Rosemoor Gardens and is right in the heart of Tarker country. At the end of the Chapple's private road there is the most wonderful 13th Century thatched pub with equally wonderful food and where we were treated like old friends!
