Location
Set in the historic Bray Valley, this truly unspoilt hamlet is surrounded by outstanding countryside, close to Exmoor National Park and only 9 miles from the regional centre of Barnstaple and 6 miles from the bustling market town of South Molton. West Buckland with its famous Public School is just a few miles away and the A361 (North Devon link road) is just 5 miles and it provides quick links to Tiverton and the M5, and National Rail links at Tiverton Parkway. Within easy reach of the moors and the coast, the area provides a complete range of outdoor services and amenities.
From South Molton, leave the town towards the A361 and the Northgate Roundabout and head straight across on to the A399 signed Brayford and Blackmoor Gate. Continue on this road for approximately 3.5 miles, and just after the bridge over the River Bray, take the left turn signed Charles. Follow this road up the hill into the village, and at the first crossroads (Charles Cross) turn left signed for West Buckland. Stay on this road and at Walland Cross turn right. Drive along this road and the gate to Higher Barn Park is on the left just before the sharp right turn in the road.
