Situation - The Cattle Barn at Thurle Farm lies in an attractive and scenic part of North Devon, about half a mile north of the small town of Chulmleigh which has a post office, shop, a bank, church, chapel, primary and secondary schools and an 18 hole short golf course. Nearby are Kings Nympton and Eggesford Railway Stations on the Tarka Line which runs along the Taw Valley between Barnstaple and Exeter.

The larger towns of Tiverton (20 miles) and Barnstaple (22 miles) both have large supermarkets, a hospital and a wide range of shops together with schools for all ages whilst the Cathedral City of Exeter is 24 miles to the south. The sandy beaches on North Devon's coastline at Saunton, Croyde and Putsborough are within easy reach as are both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks.
The A361 (North Devon Link Road) can be accessed at South Molton and Tiverton and provides access to the M5 motorway at Junction 27, nearby to which is Tiverton Parkway rail station with mainline services to London Paddington.
