Francis House Outings

Francis House have different outings to help residents with relapse prevention methods as well as seeing the beautiful surrounding area of North Devon.


Monthly Outings

Each month Francis House organise visits to the surrounding area including unique villages like Lynton & Lynmouth, or beach walks like Croyde and visits galleries and museums.

This summer we took residents for walks on the beach as well as car boots to grab some bargains.


Town Visits

A courtesy minibus is available twice weekly and care staff are there to help residents go to the different shops they wish to visit.

The historic market town of Barnstaple is a thriving community that has a large variety of shops, cafes and restaurants. Cultural provision is by way of a theatre, a library, a cinema, a leisure centre, a further education college and various places of worship. A public golf course is nearby.


When you arrive, you are registered to our local GP surgery where we can book you an appointment if it is required. We arrange transportation for this as well as hospital appointments.

Alcohol Anonymous

Alcohol Anonymous meetings are held locally and can help support clients with their problems.
