Gidleigh Park is 40 minutes from either Exeter St David's train station or from Exeter International Airport. Because of our unique rural location buses are infrequent but we would be happy to organize taxis with our local trusted taxi company.
Gidleigh Park is situated at the end of a one and a half mile country lane which in places is a narrow single track but there are plenty of passing points along the way. The lane is well maintained but care does have to be taken in winter.
We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your requirements pre arrival, please call us on 01647 432 367.
