By public transport
Shorland Old Farm is rurally situated. The closest train and coach stations are at Barnstaple, twelve miles away. Unfortunately, no buses come out to Challacombe any more but taxis may be booked to drive you here.
It’s also possible to take a train to Tiverton and a taxi from there (about 40 miles from Old Shorland). The taxi ride is longer, but the train route is more direct for most people, requiring fewer or no changes.
If you put on your booking form that you are coming by train/taxi, and there are others on that course doing the same, we can put you in contact with each other (if all parties are happy for us to do so) to see if you could share a taxi.
Directions from the M5
From junction 27 of the M5 motorway take the A361 towards Barnstaple.
NOTE: Entering the post code into your sat nav will not necessarily bring you here. It may well leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere!
