By car

The what3words app is the most reliable way to find us - ///verve.marble.theory. This will bring you to the farmyard and from there you can follow signs and the gravel track to Holly Water Cabin.

Satnav or Google maps gets you very close, but usually not quite here so please see directions below. 

Whichever method you choose, please be warned it can sometimes take you down some very narrow, steep lanes. They are all totally passable by car - we do it everyday - but if you prefer a less adventurous route then please follow the full directions given below. 

If using Satnav - please use Marsh Farm, EX17 4BD. Occasionally this may get you very close but not quite here! You may arrive at a tiny crossroads with a thatched cottage and red letter box - with letter box on your right, follow the road round to the left signposted ‘Poughill’ and you'll come to Marsh Farm on the left just after a small bridge. There's a sign for Holly Water Cabin on the side of a cream and blue barn, turn between the barns and drive to the top of the yard where you'll see another sign directing you through double gates. From there follow gravel track around the edge of the field and down to the cabin.


Take the M5 to Tiverton at Junction 27.

If you are coming on the A303, do not be tempted to stay on the road to Exeter, but cut across on the A358 from Illminster to join the M5 at Junction 25 and then go south on the M5 to Junction 27 for Tiverton.  

Come off at Junction 27 (M5) and turn right at the roundabout onto A361 dual carriageway towards Barnstaple and Tiverton. Come off at junction sign-posted to Tiverton and Bickleigh. Follow all signs to Bickleigh (on A396). In Bickleigh take right before long stone bridge onto A3072 sign-posted to Crediton. Stay on this road, mostly up hill. After a few miles you’ll pass a sign on the left to ​Fursdon House and you'll then go through Cadbury. 

Just after Cadbury, take the first right signposted to Cheriton Fitzpaine. Follow this road until you arrive in Cheriton Fitzpaine. Turn right in middle of village opposite the Half Moon pub (small turning on staggered crossroads). After 100yds, take first left signposted to Poughill. After a couple of miles you will come to a very tight left hand bend with a letterbox on the right. Continue round the bend, down the hill and over a small bridge. Marsh Farm is the first set of buildings on your left, with cream and blue barns. Turn between the barns and follow signs to Holly Water Cabin.

The track to the cabin is an all weather gravel track so you can drive to the cabin and park right next to it.
