About the neighbourhood
Dolton is a quaint little village just a mile away. It has 2 pubs, a butcher and a well stocked shop. It also has a fish and chip van that comes every Wednesday evening and a stone baked pizza van every second Tuesday of the month. The pubs in the surrounding villages, such as Iddesleigh and Roborough, are also worth visiting. Everybody is very friendly and makes you feel like part of the community during your stay.

The Gate House has a very central location, great for visiting the whole of Devon, Somerset and Cornwall. We are based directly between Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks and the North Devon Coast.
Getting around
Although there is a bus stop in the local village of Dolton (1 mile away), the nearest train station is a 15minute drive away so we do recommend a car.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Airport: 66.0 km
Railway: Eggesford: 15.0 km
Exit the M5 at junction 31 (Okehampton A30) and follow the A30 until the Whiddon Down/Winkleigh junction.
Follow signposts to Winkleigh and from Winkleigh head towards Torrington. Turn left off of the main road at Dolton Beacon garage towards Dolton. Once entering the village, take the second left (one way street), and cross straight over the little cross roads.
Continue down the hill and up the other side to the very top. Our Stafford Barton gates are on the left at the top of the hill between two stone pillars. Follow the driveway up to the courtyard and the Gate House is the first cottage that you come to in front of the main house.
