About Us

Tarka Clinic is located in the centre of Barnstaple on Paiges Lane. It was opened by Sir Ranulph Fiennes in 1999. The Tarka Clinic is a dynamic, vibrant practice. Instead of having a number of practitioners working independently of each other, the members of Tarka Clinic work as a team, focusing on different aspects of the person’s life in order to maximise their health potential.

The Tarka Clinic is fully accessible by wheelchair, with a large entrance door, a toilet suitable for disabled people and a room with a wide door for wheelchair access.

There is ample car parking in the cattle market care park which is only a short distance from the clinic.

In the retail section, there is an excellent and exclusive range of vitamin and mineral supplements and Aloe Vera products stocked in our sales area. Lumbar support belts, joint supports, therabands and heel lifts are also available. There is now also a wide selection of first aid kits, bugsox, mosquito nets and insect repellents.
