Directions to The Old Stable
If you are travelling south via the M5 we advise you do not follow the Sat Nav and come off at Tiverton, as this is will take you much longer to reach us, continue down to Exeter and then follow the instructions below.
From M5 or A303, Exeter - take A30 and follow signs to Okehampton.
At Whiddon Down, about 19 miles from Exeter, exit the dual carriageway into the village, past the motorway services. Take the next right, A3124, to North Tawton. At the T junction at the entrance to North Tawton, turn left onto the A3072.
After about a mile turn right, staying on the A3072, signposted Sampford Courtenay, Exbourne, Hatherleigh. Continue on the road past the village of Sampford Courtenay and onto the village of Exbourne. At Exbourne, turn right at Exbourne Cross Garage and into the village. Keep on through the village, past the church and follow the road round to the left and out of the village. Follow the signs to Monkokehampton.
Drive through Monkokehampton village and follow signs to Iddesleigh. At the village of Iddesleigh, follow the road round to the left, with the Duke of York pub and the church on the hill to your right and leave the village towards Dolton and Dowland.
The road narrows even more now! Keep on the road and do not take any lanes to your left or right. Downhill and back uphill and you will arrive in Dowland. Opposite the church (on your left) take the road on your right to Winkleigh. The Old Vicarage (and The Old Stable) is on your left as you leave the hamlet, after about 400 yards.
From A30 (from west) - Exit the A30 at Sourton and follow the A386 to Hatherleigh (about 10 miles).
At the roundabout at Hatherleigh take the 3rd exit into the town. Follow the road round to the left and take the first right (South Street) up the hill past the primary school. Follow this road straight up the hill (ignoring any lanes off to the right or left) and out of the town and up onto Hatherleigh Moor. Here you will have the most fabulous view of the whole of the north part of Dartmoor.
As you come down off the moor, turn left and follow the road signposted Iddesleigh. As you come into the village of Iddesleigh turn left towards Dowland and Dolton. The road narrows even more now! Keep on the road and do not take any lanes to your left or right. Downhill and back uphill and you will arrive in Dowland. Opposite the church (on your left) take the road on your right to Winkleigh.
