Situated in Bideford, a flourishing market town in North Devon, the site occupies a prominent waterside position on Barnstaple Street, on the east side of the River Torridge and is adjacent to the Grade I Listed Long Bridge. The site is bordered by the Wooda Doctors Surgery to the north, Barnstaple Street to the east, land owned by the Royal Hotel to the south and the River Torridge to the west.
