Head west along the M4 and on to the M5 at Bristol. Leave the M5 at Exeter and join the A30 (West) to Okehampton.

Leave the A30 and head into the centre of Okehampton where you make a right hand turn at Lloyds Bank into Market Street. Follow this road across the mini-roundabout and up the hill out of Okehampton until you reach the A386 where you turn right towards Hatherleigh.

As you approach Hatherleigh on the A386 turn left at the roundabout onto the A3072 to Highampton.

As you come up the hill into Highampton the Golden Inn pub and the Post Office are on your left and the A3072 bends sharply left just after these. Slow down on the bend and turn into the road to Sheepwash.

Follow the road for about a mile into Sheepwash and continue straight through Sheepwash with the village square on your right and the village shop on your left. The turning for Lake Farm is about a mile north of Sheepwash on your left.

SAT NAV WARNING: Between Sheepwash and Lake Farm, just after the vineyard on your right, there is junction with a left turn that all Sat Navs like to take. Ignore this instruction and follow the signpost in the direction of Torrington and Buckland Filleigh.

At the Lake Farm sign turn left and follow the track down to the house keeping to the left at the fork in the road and then keeping left of the fence around the courtyard. Park anywhere in the courtyard in front of the house.
