The Tarka Trail is named after Henry Williamson's 'Tarka the Otter', and the story was based on many locations along the Trail, which uses the route of a disused railway line between Braunton and Meeth. With up to 21 miles of level and traffic free riding on offer, a bike is the perfect way of exploring
the area .
Our cycle hire centre is conveniently located beside Barnstaple Railway Station, and is the perfect start point for exploring North Devon by bike. We take great pride in looking after our hire fleet, and
with an extensive range of over 130 cycles available, have a bike to suit everyone.
