We can be somewhat tricky to find, partly due to the glorious Devon winding lanes, lack of street lights and partly due to the fact that we are only permitted to put up A4 sized signs! Please don’t struggle if you are at all unsure of directions, do just call and we would be only too happy to help!
For sat nav purposes you would use PL20 6EU, this will bring you to the top of the “Abbey Deliveries” access road, this is at the bottom of a dip with a small bus stop flag sign opposite the turning. Take this road down onto the Estate, over 2 speed bumps, between 2 granite posts, past a large house set up on your left and a pond on your right, you will see 2 walls directly ahead with a rough track between them signposted Kitchen Garden and Cider House Gardens, drive between these walls and Cider House is the large house facing you at the bottom of the track with 2 arched oak doors, parking is against the Abbey Garden wall to the left of Cider House as you look at it.
For directions from the North, take the M5 South and at the end of it following signs for Okehampton A30. Follow the A30 until you see signs for Tavistock, drive into Tavistock and then pick up and follow signs for Yelverton and Plymouth A386, follow this out of Tavistock. On reaching the Yelverton roundabout (there is only one) take the exit for the A386 sign posted towards Plymouth you want to then turn right immediately (this turning is about 25yds beyond the roundabout) continue on this road and you will go over a cattle grid and onto the moor for a short stretch, at the next T-junction turn right and you will enter a village called Crapstone (and go over another cattle grid).
On entering Crapstone you will go past a war memorial on your right and 100yds past this there is a turning on your left which you need to take, it is on a fairly sharp right hand bend, there is also a sign for Buckland Abbey (a brown sign) directing you down this road. Continue until you reach a cross roads (you have right of way) a sign on your right indicates that the carpark is straight on for another 100yds and that to your right is the Abbey Deliveries access route, turn right at this cross roads, sign posted Bere Alston, follow the road as it goes down a dip (150yds), at the bottom of the dip you will see our sign marking the drive entrance on your left. Then follow the directions as detailed above.
Please do call at any point (01822 259062) and we would be happy to help.
