Public Transport Links to Orchard Lodges

We are very well located for anyone wishing either to arrive or just use public transport while staying with us.

The railway station (Book tickets here) at Barnstaple is only 4 miles away, a regular bus service brings you almost to our door (200 metres).

National Express also goes pass the Farm entrance several times a day. Please check their website for times and prices here.

We have fantastic local bus service which enables guests to get to most parts of North Devon and weekly passes can be bought for about £10.00 per week. Find out more here.

We ourselves often use the bus in the evening if we are going for a meal and do not want to worry about drinking and driving. The last buses leave Bideford and Barnstaple just after 11.00pm.

How to Find Us



As you approach Barnstaple on the A361 you come to a roundabout.

Take the 1st exit A39 Bideford. At the next 2 roundabouts go straight on.

At the next roundabout take the 3rd exit to Bickington. Go over 2 mini roundabouts and at the 3rd roundabout take the 1st exit the B3233.

Go through Bickington and Fremington, and we are the 1st turning on the right out of the village (about 1 mile).
