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 train station just 15 minutes away and National Express coaches coming into nearby Tiverton and Exeter.

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 and satellite navigation will take you in the wrong direction! If you want to use SatNav we recommend entering KENTISBEARE rather than our postcode and follow the 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.
