Bramble House is the newest home in Phoenix Learning and Care’s portfolio and is located on the East side of the historical port town of Bideford, within a friendly terrace street in an established local community, with a park and BMX track only a short walk away. The home is close to local amenities and many clubs such as Army and Sea cadets, Scouts, youth groups and a well-equipped gym, amongst others which are on its door step. You could be cycling along the famous Tarka Trail cycle path in minutes, being immersed in the beautiful North Devon countryside and heading towards beautiful beaches, or have a Hockings ice cream made by generations in the neighbouring town of Appledore.
Bideford has great transport links to Barnstaple. With Exeter a one hour and thirty minutes journey by car, or one hour by train from Barnstaple.
