North Devon Campus Room Hire

Petroc Barnstaple Main Site is beautifully nestled on the North Devon coast with easy access to Bideford, Woolacombe, South Molton and the edge of Exmoor. It also has good access to Barnstaple town centre and is located a mile from the train station. At the Main Site we have the spacious Stanbury Hall (with capacity of 300 and tiered seating) which has breakout rooms nearby as well as a purpose built Lecture Theatre for 70 delegates. We also have an incredibly popular sports facility with adjoining gym.

The site has parking facilities and is the perfect venue for conferences, seminars, small fairs and exhibitions. We are able to cater for a variety of delegate numbers and often have 200-300 attendees. We also cater for the other end of the spectrum and have more intimate meeting rooms for two or three delegates.

Every event and booking with us is unique, in terms of your organisation and its needs, as well as your requirements on the day - this is why we tailor-make every event to suit you. We are delighted to be able to offer a first class buffet menu with several options. We are also able to tailor-make lunches/evening dinners according to your requirements. The Food Standards Agency has previously joined us and specifically requested both a cold buffet and hot meal option (the fish option is sustainable and local to this region) and we are happily able to deliver this service. Many of our goods come from local suppliers and are organic and sustainable.

We are more than happy to discuss your event requirements and put together a bespoke package to include all our bookable areas and any breakout rooms, parking, delegate lists and welcome to site, as well as any other facilities or services you require.
