Further up the hill after the built-up area of Totnes, turn left to Ashprington (brown sign for Sharpham Vineyard and the Waterman's Arms).

After 1.8 miles of winding road turn left at the crossroad (sign shows straight on for Ashprington - if you get to the village you've gone too far!) and after 50 yards turn right down a private road marked 'Lower Sharpham Barton' and 'The Barn Retreat'.

Follow this over 12 speed bumps all the way down to the bottom (0.7 miles).

Drive through the farmyard bearing left and head up the concrete road to the Barn. Please park by the woodsheds (you may have to double park).

If you're using a Sat Nav, our postcode, TQ9 7DX, directs you to Sharpham Barton Farm. On Google maps the Barn is about 300m due north. (You can see our poly-tunnels and gardens about 150m north-west of the Barn building.) Our driveway is obscured by trees, but identified if you ‘show labels’.
