Getting Here

Forest Park Lodges is just off the A377 near the Portsmouth Arms Rail Station approximately 10 miles south east of Barnstaple.

From the North
From the M5 south leave at junction 27 (M5) on the A361 signposted BARNSTAPLE. Turn off to SOUTH MOLTON on the B3227.

Stay on the B3227 to UMBERLEIGH. At the T junction just over the bridge turn LEFT along the A377 for 5 miles, then turn right at the white coloured house (if you miss this turn you will see the PORTSMOUTH ARMS Rail Station on the left and you will know you have gone past the turn).   Journey up the hill about 500 metres and look for the sharp right hand turn (signposted Forest Lodge). 

Drive on up through the forest road to the Lodges.

As you enter the site, you drive past the first few lodges and take a sharp left turn, up the steep hill (past the swimming pool) and Dunster Lodge will be in front of you.
