The best way to get to Salcombe from the A38 (coming from the direction of Exeter) is as follows.

If you have a trailer, follow the signs to Totnes, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe. Otherwise, ignore this sign and continue on the A38 until you see the exit signposted ‘Plymouth Park and Ride’ and‘Ermington, Modbury & Yealmpton’. At the end of the slip road, turn left.

At the crossroads at the bottom of the hill, cross over, signposted ‘Loddiswell’.

After approximately 2 miles, at California Cross, fork left just after the BP garage, signposted ‘Loddiswell & Kingsbridge’. Go through Loddiswell, down the hill and across the valley. At the top of the next (long and windy) hill, turn right signposted ‘Kingsbridge, Salcombe & Plymouth’. At the roundabout, take the second exit. Go through Churchstow and turn left at the roundabout. After a few miles, you come to a ‘T’ junction. Turn right, and follow the road through Malborough to Salcombe.

As you approach Salcombe, take the left turn immediately after the pedestrian crossing into Onslow Road. Go down the hill and Allenhayes Road is the fourth turning on the right, just before the road narrows and turns sharp left. Leylands is the blue house a short way up on the right hand side of the road. You can pull onto the pavement opposite for a short time to unpack the car before heading off to park. Please don’t block our neighbours’ driveways.
