Welcome to Little Bridge House


Little Bridge House conservatory

Little Bridge House, which opened in 1995, is a beautiful and homely stonebuilt building in North Devon. It is a peaceful and relaxing environment surrounded by lovely gardens that provide plenty of places to play and enjoy the sunshine.

Families staying at Little Bridge House can enjoy the glorious North Devon coast, and all that it has to offer. The old market towns of Barnstaple and Bideford are nearby, and while the hospice is on the outskirts of a small town, our next door neighbours are the cows and sheep!

The idea behind our hospices has always been to provide a home from home for everyone who stays with us, and that includes parents, and brothers and sisters too. So our 8 child-friendly bedrooms have minimal medical equipment and are decorated with favourite books, toys and DVDs for each child who stays with us. There is lovely accommodation for the rest of the family too!


The house has plenty of facilities including a main living area that forms the heart and soul of the house, cosy lounges, a messy play room for carefree creativity, a multi-sensory room with lights, sounds and textures to soothe and calm, a soft play area for safe, trouble-free fun and a hydrotherapy pool for relieving stiff joints and muscle spasm.

Teenagers also get their own special space where they can surf the net, play music and be themselves, while our games room is a place for chilling out and taking a few minutes to beat dad at pool.

Outside space

Little Bridge House sensory gardens - Narnia theme

Outside, there is the Narnia sensory garden, which was based on C.S Lewis' magical book 'The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe'.

The garden is full of features to stimulate all of the senses; sight, sound, smell and touch! The space is well loved by both children and parents as it provides a place to really set the imagination free!
