Additional Directions Information

 Directions from the Motorway (M5):

Take exit 27 and follow A361 past Tiverton towards Barnstaple. Take Knowstone exit and pass through Roachhill till you meet B3227. Here you go right and straight left following signs to Oldways End, where you follow road winding through the village till you get to East Anstey sign. At this point you have to take the road signposted to Tarr Steps / Hawkridge. Go for 1-½ miles, Anstey Mills Cottages are on your left, over a cattle grid at the bottom of a ONE TRACK farm lane. (I will send you a detailed map, don't just rely on SatNav, it won't take you all the way).


Directions from Dulverton

Coming out of Dulverton cross the bridge over the River Barle (by Bridge Inn) and after 400 yards turn off right uphill via Hawkridge. Take the second right turn still signposted Hawkridge and follow all the way up till you join another road at the t-junction. Here go left and go along the top till 5-cross-ways (see Devon sign, you are right on the Somerset/ Devon border). Here turn left to East Anstey (not right to Hawkridge) and follow the road past the large mansion house with a long stone wall (Chiltons) till you come to our Anstey Mills Cottages sign (which is the first right turning)... and again over the cattle grid and down the non-metalled lane.


Before your arrival you can order shopping online through Riverford (boxes arrive on Tuesdays) or Asda, Sainsbury's/Tesco/Waitrose to be delivered to our postcode (TA22 9RZ) -- just mention NARROW LANE. But even better just stroll through lovely Dulverton where you have excellent quality shops from the baker, butcher, deli, fruit&veg shop...
