Situation & Amenities - Jaspers is located in the pretty hamlet of Eastleigh surrounded by beautiful Devon countryside where there are walks, footpaths and bridleways and the convenience of both towns of Barnstaple (six miles) and Bideford (three miles). Bideford town centre sits on the banks of The River Torridge and offers a wide range of amenities including various shops, butchers, pubs, restaurants, cafes, places of worship, schooling for all ages (public and private) and four supermarkets. There is also easy access to the Tarka Trail, which affords superb walks or cycle rides that extend beyond Torrington and Barnstaple. The renowned coastal town of Westward Ho! offers a good range of amenities and boasts a three mile long safe and sandy beach which joins Northam Burrows Country Park and the Royal North Devon Golf Course which is reputed to be the oldest links course in England. Westward Ho! has access to the South West Coast Path which affords excellent walks and stunning vistas of the rugged North Devon coastline. The regional centre of Barnstaple offers the area's main train station, business, shopping and commercial venues. There are also good transport opportunities via train or the A361 Link Road connecting to the motorway at Junction 27 (of the M5).
