Our recommended route;

    1. From Exeter, heading south on the M5, the M5 splits between A38/A380. Follow the A380 signposted for Torquay for several miles until the road divides at Newton Abbot. (There is a Sainsbury’s signposted “superstore” just off this roundabout if you need supplies).
    2. Stay in the outside lane signposted Torquay and go over the bridge and then immediately move into the left hand lane taking the first exit signposted towards “Bickley Mill Inn”
    3. At the roundabout take the third exit and follow the brown signs all the way to the Bickley Mill for c 3miles (En route you will cross straight over the next roundabout, turn right after c250m and then continue along this road under a railway bridge and a very sharp left hand bend in the road, under a second bridge and past Stoneycombe quarry).
    4. Pass the Bickley Mill on your right and take the left hand road at the fork and pass the Compton Valley Nursery on your right
    5. Take the right hand turning at the T – junction signposted to Compton and then turn left at the next T junction towards Compton
    6. Keep your eyes trained on the RIGHT hand side of the road and you will see the green Brownscombe sign
    7. As you come up the drive, bear left in front of Compton Holt and you will see the communal parking area for guests of Brownscombe Luxury Glamping and Reception, which will be open until 6.30pm on changeover days.

    Once you have been welcomed at reception, you will be able to drive your car into the field to unpack if it is still daylight.

    Please contact Kate beforehand if you think it is likely to be later than 7pm and please note that we don’t allow cars into the fields after dark, so an overnight bag of essentials may be required so you can unpack fully in the morning.

    Trouble shooting if you get lost!

    1. If you arrive in Compton village and pass the National Trust’s Compton Castle on your right then please turn round and retrace your steps and Brownscombe will be the 4th turning on your LEFT after you have past some farm buildings (on left).

    2. If you miss the initial turning for the Bickley Mill Inn then carry on along the dual carriage way and take the right hand fork towards Dartmouth and then cross straight over the first roundabout and take third exit on the second roundabout to Marldon and follow signs to Compton. You then need to pass Compton Castle on your left Brownscombe will be the 4th turning on your LEFT after you have past some farm buildings (on left). If you end up at a small junction signposted North Whilborough head back towards Compton Castle and we are on the right hand side. If you are going round in circles call Kate on 07884 181677!
