About the Area

As well as being a fantastic employer to work for, Petroc is also located in one of the most picturesque parts of the UK, with campuses on both the beautiful and rugged North Devon coastline and nestled in the heart of the Mid Devon countryside. 

With a wonderful variety of landscapes and activities, we have good transport links and our local beaches win numerous awards year after year. As well as our golden sandy beaches, we have dramatic coastlines, rugged moors and valleys all ready to be explored. With great local food and drink and a wealth of cultural experiences, it is easy to see why the South West is regularly nominated as a great place to live.
