Getting to Dartington Hall
Dartington is situated in South East Devon, a mile from the historic market town of Totnes.
From Exeter: following the M5, take the Plymouth (A38) road until the exit signposted to Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. Turn left onto the A384 and shortly after the Dartington village sign, turn left at Dartington Church and follow for 1 mile. The main car park is on the left.
From Plymouth: take the A38 up to the A385 turning, signposted to Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. Then as above.
Main car parks are located at the core estate (near to the Hall and Gardens) and at The Shops at Dartington. Parking is transferable, so you can switch between these locations as long as you’ve got time left on your ticket.
Parking charges are payable by cash or mobile phone:
Daily rate = £6 (for any length stay from 9am to 9pm)
The nearest rail station is at Totnes (on the main Paddington – Penzance line), approximately 1½ miles from Dartington (approx. 35 min walk/10 min taxi ride). There is a taxi rank at Totnes Station. There is a footpath to Dartington directly from the station which travels alongside the River Dart for ¾ mile and meets with the Dartington drive; the walk is undulating and challenging for pushchairs.
By Bus and Coach
There are coaches from London (Victoria Coach Station) and other major cities which go to Newton Abbot Railway Station. You can then connect with a train to Totnes. Some coaches go direct to Royal Seven Stars at Totnes.
