Roundswell lies on the south side of Barnstaple, an area which is predominantly a residential district complimented by edge of town retail facilities.
There is particularly good access to the North Devon Link Road (A39/A361) which provides an excellent route westwards to Bideford and Cornwall beyond and eastwards to the M5 motorway network at Tiverton. There are additional local facilities at Bickington and Barnstaple town centre is about 1 mile away.
Barnstaple is the regional centre for North Devon and has excellent facilities. There is a pleasing blend of High Street multiple retailers and more local shops. The town centre has a thriving theatre and cinema and also of particular note is the restored Pannier Market and the adjacent Butchers Row. There are very good leisure facilities and on the banks of the River Taw is the town’s sports centre with the excellent Tarka Tennis Centre nearby.
Barnstaple is very well placed for access to the fabulous coastline and the excellent surfing beaches at Saunton, Croyde Bay and Woolacombe. For golfers, the Saunton Gold Club, close to the coast, enjoys two championship links courses. To the north east lies the Exmoor National Park, the southern boundary being about 10 miles away.
The A361 provides a fast route to the M5 motorway at junction 27, about 34 miles away, and there also is the Tiverton Parkway mainline railway station (London – Paddington approx. 2 hours). Exeter, the county town and cathedral city with its international airport is about 45 miles away via the A361 and M5 motorway.

At the next roundabout (where you will see stone sculptures), continue straight across (second exit) remaining on B3233 (Sticklepath Hill) and sign posted Sticklepath. At the top of Sticklepath Hill take the first exit off the roundabout onto the Old Torrington Road.
