How to get there
Favourite stop off points on the journey from London to north Devon are Stonehenge and Glastonbury, Hauser & Wirth Somerset in Bruton or Hestercombe, but there are many more; we use the National Trust handbook, and have found many places of interest on the way, such as Avebury, Lacock Abbey and Longleat.
All require a bit of a detour, but it breaks up the journey and makes it feel as if the holiday has started earlier!

Getting around the area is very easy by car. There is a local taxi service, but this has to be booked in advance, particularly on weekend evenings. There are buses, which are reliable but not frequent. You can, for instance, take an early evening bus from Combe Martin to Ilfracombe, but you will have to book a cab for the return journey, as buses don't run back to the village late in the evening.
