If using a sat/nav system please DON'T take the turning to 'Ford' as this will take you down a very narrow twisty lane that even the locals won't drive down!
Holbeton sits down a country lane off the A379 between Modbury and Yealmpton. If coming from the east the turning is on the left about 3/4 of a mile heading towards Yealmpton, after the junction of the A3121 and the A379.
From the west the turning is on the right about a mile after Yealmbridge.
It is sign posted to Holbeton and Mothecombe with a brown tourist sign to The Mildmay Colours.
The road narrows to one cars width in several places. Go past the turning to Ford (see warning above). Continue for about another mile until you come to the sign for Holbeton, turn left down the hill, follow the single track lane into the village. The entrance to The Ivy Barn is a sharp right turn between the church and The Mildmay Colours before the Post Office. If you miss the turn for Holbeton there is another down the road immediately after the cream coloured house. This is a little wider but still a single track road, follow the road into the village past The Dartmoor Union and follow the road round to the left as it passes The Mildmay Colours. You will need to go out onto the other side of the road to be able to swing into the left turn between the church and pub. Our car park is on the right hand side after the Barn. The reception is on the first floor which is accessed through our garden, so please leave your luggage in the car whilst checking in as your room will be on ground floor level.
The Ivy Barn is B&B en suite holiday accommodation near Dartmoor.
There are few places that can compare with this beautiful diverse area of South Devon. The Ivy Barn is a great base from which to explore.
