Once you have found this secret haven once, getting here becomes very obvious. If it is your first visit and you are ever unsure please follow the signs all the way to South Devon Railway (there are many). We are adjacent to their platform.

By Steam Train

Make a day of it and travel to us by steam train. South Devon Railway runs trains to Totnes from Buckfastleigh or Staverton.

Ask for joint tickets to enjoy a discounted rate for the farm and railway.

For timetables and prices, or directions to the Buckfastleigh and Staverton stations, please visit the South Devon Railway website.
