Directions to us via Braunton

  1. From junction 27 of the M5 take the North Devon Link Road (A361) to Barnstaple.
  2. At round about just before Barnstaple take signs for the A361 to Ilfracombe.
  3. Pass through Braunton still on the A361 (towards Ilfracombe).
  4. Pass through the village of Knowle still on the A361.
  5. 2/3 mile after Knowle turn right towards Halsinger at Heddon Mills Cross, by bus stop. Please take great care at this junction as it is an accident black spot – check your mirrors for overtaking vehicles before turning.
  6. Proceed 1.8 miles turning left at the second crossroads.
  7. Then left again after a very short distance.
  8. Continue for 1 mile down a winding lane, over a small bridge and take the second entrance (signposted Main Car Park) for Woodlark, Caen Byre, farm shop, therapy room and fishing. For the Mill House or the Granary please take Entrance 2.

Alternative route via Exmoor

Avoid this route if you are a nervous driver and do not like reversing as the final road down to us is quite long and narrow with very few passing points. You’d be unlucky to meet a car but it obviously can happen and you may have to reverse some distance. It is, nonetheless, a beautiful road and we enjoy using it without issue – just take it slowly if you do!).

If you like the idea of going via Exmoor, but not the final narrow road, at step 7, don’t turn left before the school, just carry on and it will take you down to the A361 where you turn left and then left again at the Heddon Mills junction (and pick up the directions above from step 5).

  1. From junction 27 of the M5 proceed to South Molton along the A361.
  2. Here turn right at the roundabout (Aller Cross) towards Brayford and Blackmoor Gate (A399).
  3. Continue through Brayford and past Blackmoor Gate.
  4. Three miles after Blackmoor gate turn left onto the A3123 towards Mullacott Cross and Woolacombe.
  5. Turn left at T junction just before Berry Down Cross and take care to avoid turning to East Down where the main road turns a very sharp corner.
  6. Go straight over at Lynton Cross (by On-a-Hill garage) then turn left to West Down village.
  7. In the centre of West Down turn right towards the school (signed Barnstaple) and left just before the school to leave the village on a country lane.
  8. Take the second turning on the left (signed Little Comfort Farm Fishing) and proceed down the hill along a narrow lane to Little Comfort which is on the left at the bottom of the hill before the bridge. Take the first gateway (signposted Entrance 2) for the Mill House and Granary and the second gateway (signposted Main Entrance) for Caen Byre, Woodlark and all other facilities.
