Public Transport

It can sometimes be difficult to find a car parking space at our hospital. We suggest that, if possible, you and your visitors use public transport.

An office in Barnstaple called the Single Point of Contact (SPoC) has comprehensive information on transport to and from local hospitals. It can also arrange ambulance transport if needed. Staff will ask you about your health and mobility, to check if you are eligible. Tel: 01271 314332.

Park & Ride

The Park & Ride bus is quick and inexpensive. It starts at Newport and runs frequently to Barnstaple where a connection may be made to North Devon District Hospital. The Park & Ride runs every 20 minutes between 7.00am and 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday, except on public holidays.

Follow signposts to the hospital from most of the main routes into Barnstaple. The entrance to the car park is clearly signposted. Drivers will need to take a ticket at the entrance barrier, then pay at one of the machines before returning to their car to leave. Disabled drivers who hold a blue badge can park free of charge in the bays clearly marked at the NDDH main entrance. Additional disabled parking is available in the main visitors’ car parking area, where parking charges apply. There are also a limited number of designated disabled badgeholder spaces at the entrance to most buildings on site.

If you are planning to drive yourself to the hospital, please check whether you will be fit to drive yourself home after your stay.
