Most Satnavs will try and direct you to us via long and winding country lanes, not great when you're towing or driving a motorhome!
We suggest you follow our directions, which will keep you on good main roads.

From the M5

This route from the M5 will take you about an hour and a quarter.
From M5 Junction 27, take the A361 towards Barnstable.

Follow this road for 30 miles; crossing 3 roundabouts:

The first of these three roundabouts is at Tiverton where the road changes from a dual carriageway to single carriageway (keep straight ahead).
The second is at South Molton (keep straight ahead).
The third is North Aller Roundabout. DO NOT TURN RIGHT HERE, keep straight ahead towards Barnstaple.

The next roundabout  you come to (new roundabout within the roadworks) will have 2 exits. Take the second exit (straight over) towards Barnstaple Bideford, Bude (A39) & Ilfracombe A361.

The next roundabout will have 2 exits. Take the first exit towards Bideford, Bude (A39) & Ilfracombe A361.

Go straight over the next roundabout (Bishops Tawton Junction) and over the Rumsam Bridge, which is crossing the River Taw.

The next roundabout is Lake Roundabout, take the second exit here (right) towards Barnstable & Ilfracombe, still on to the A361.

You'll shortly arrive at Sticklepath Junction (Known as Barn-Henge to the locals), go straight over; staying on the A361 towards Ilfracombe.

You'll now be going over Taw Bridge, which crosses the Taw Estuary.

At the first set of traffic lights, go straight ahead, towards the T junction (200-300 metres ahead)

At the T junction - Braunton Road Junction - take the left, towards Ilfracombe & Braunton, again staying on the A361.

200m metres further ahead will be a set of traffic lights, go straight over here towards Braunton.

Keep on this road for 3 miles, and over the small roundabout at Chivenor Cross (second exit).

300 metres ahead is another small roundabout at a new housing development. Straight over here (second exit).

1 mile ahead is a small roundabout as you enter Braunton. Take the second exit (straight over) towards Ilfracombe (A361).

Half a mile ahead is the main crossroads in Braunton, go straight over at these traffic lights towards Ilfracombe.

Although you might sit in traffic here, this is still the best route. Keep on this road for 1 mile and you will pass through Knowle village.

Again, keep on this road for 2 miles, and you'll then see Hidden Valley on the left-hand side.
