A place of opportunity
On Foot or Cycle from Totnes
From the railway station (walking 55-75mins, cycling 35mins)
To reach Sharpham House by foot or cycle, first find the cycle path and a public footpath from Totnes to Ashprington (2.5 miles).
Out of Totnes station drive, turn left at main road, crossing over at pedestrian lights. At Morrison's petrol station take road straight on into 'Town'. (You'll soon walk past Morrison's supermarket on left.) Keep going straight on over mini roundabout.
At Job Centre Plus, the road swings right into St Katharine's Way but you go straight on, passing the Job Centre to your right. When the road bears left around the back of the Steam Packet Inn on your left, you turn right (signposted 'National Cycle Network 28'), uphill for 30 metres to a sign for footpath/cycle route to Ashprington.
Follow this route now until after two miles you reach the stone pillars on the Sharpham Estate drive. Turn left and it is then an easy walk downhill on the footpath that runs alongside the road. This road snakes down and continues on to the Vineyard and the Bathing House.
On this road, on the right past two bungalows on the sharp right hand bend, at three way junction, there’s a large wooden signpost giving directions. See the image below.
