Directions to Taw Cottage

OS Map Ref: SX655972.

Post code: EX20 2LU.

Taw Cottage is located on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park, two miles from the village of South Zeal. We are twenty miles west of Exeter (35 mins by car) and five miles east of Okehampton (15 minutes).

From the East

From the M5 J31 take the A30 towards Okehampton.

Get off the A30 at Whiddon Down junction, follow the signs towards South Zeal and Sticklepath.

After about two and a half miles the road goes down a steep hill with a sharp bend to the right at the bottom. Then take the second right at Ford Cross which is sign posted South Zeal (look out for the stone and wooden bus shelter on the right).

Go straight on at the next crossroads, signposted South Tawton.

Go through South Tawton, out the other side and over the A30.

The road then narrows to single track and after about a mile goes over an old bridge which brings you into the hamlet of Taw Green.

Stay on this road and you will pass the Old Chapel on the left and a triangle of grass on the right with a post box on it.

Bear left here (signed North Tawton) and slow down, we are the second thatched cottage on the left (Taw Barton). You will see Taw Cottage on the left just after our house, please park in the gravel driveway in front of the cottage.

From the West

Take the Okehampton, Sticklepath, Belstone exit off the A30.

Follow the signs to Sticklepath, and drive through the village. After the village shop (on the left after the Taw River Inn) take the third left towards South Zeal. Continue along this lane until you get to the crossroads on the outskirts of South Zeal, and turn left here towards South Tawton.
