The Tarka Trail at The Station Masters Cafe

the traka trail barnstaple to bideford cafe

We are one of the main entry points, by bus, cycle, train or by foot for the famous and very beautiful  tarka trail which predominately follows the River Taw and Torridge through, Braunton, Bideford, Instow and Torrington. 

You can pick up a wide range of home made sandwiches and cake before wandering along the trail, or indeed you can come in as a stop off point, either way we would love to welcome you to our establishment. 

It is worth taking a camera and binoculars if you want to see the wide range of wildlife along the trail, from butter flies to otters and Spoon bills to foxes. 

The trail is a truly magical place to unwind and enjoy some of the very best of Devon.
