Access Statement for Haxton Down Farm B&B
Farmhouse is a mid 16th century working farm, with a couple of extensions added some time in the 18 th & 19th centuries. Because of the age and layout of the building we are unfortunately unable to provide wheelchair access.
The property is located 1.5 miles from the nearest main road, the A399, and 1 mile from the village of Bratton Fleming. It is a very quiet and peaceful location, the nearest shop being in the village
We are providing this statement as a guide for those who might be concerned about access, and encourage you to contact us should you have any further questions.
The nearest train station is Barnstaple. The number 310 bus runs between Barnstaple and Bratton Fleming every 2 hours or so, Monday to Saturday, less frequently on Sundays.
The nearest bus stop is 1 mile away, in the village. We will gladly pick you up on your arrival, and take you there on your day of departure although we feel it is preferable to have your own transport
Although we will try to be available at other times if necessary, this cannot be guaranteed.
