Guest Information

Directions 

Please do not follow satnav beyond Exeter as it is likely to take you down some narrow lanes and via the Dartmouth Ferry. We recommend you take the A38 Exeter to Plymouth road, turning left at Buckfastleigh for Totnes (A384). At Totnes follow the signs for Kingbridge (A381).  On reaching Kingsbridge take the A379 towards Stokenham (follow the brown signs for The Cricket Inn which will direct you to Beeson). At the mini roundabout turn right and follow the road for approx 1.5 miles until reaching a left hand turn for Beeson/Beesands. On reaching Beeson the road forks, turn right for Beeson Farm. Pass the barns on your left and the main drive can be found on the left just past the back of the farmhouse.

Parking

Please feel free to park up and unload your car outside your cottage. Once unloaded, there is a car parking area off the main drive, please do not leave your car in the farmyard or the drive.
