Getting Here

Halsbeer Farm is situated on the outskirts of Kentisbeare village near Cullompton, Devon. With close links to the M5 and the A30/A303 it’s really easy to get yourself to our spot in the Blackdown Hills without too much fuss. We have great public transport links in the area with Tiverton Parkway and Honiton train stations just 15-20 minutes away and coaches coming into nearby Tiverton, Exeter and even Cullompton.

We are situated down quite a few lanes so please print out our directions below as although it is relatively simple to reach, the last few miles can be quite tricky. If you want to use SatNav our postcode is EX15 2HW but you may prefer to put in Kentisbeare and follow the written directions from there. Google Maps should recognise Halsbeer Farm as a location but be aware that the driveway to the cottages is actually from the lane that leads to Mortimers Farm to the south of the property, not from the north.
