Map & Directions

Road Directions

Sharpham Estate is three miles outside Totnes on the edge of Ashprington village.

From the A38/Devon Expressway take the Totnes/Buckfastleigh exit.

On arriving in Totnes, at the first traffic lights, turn right onto the A381 towards Kingsbridge. Half a mile outside Totnes turn left to Ashprington (about two miles).

On reaching Ashprington village turn left up the hill and onto the Sharpham Estate. Follow the road downhill until you get to three way junction and then follow signs to the back of Sharpham House, where there is a small car park. This is also the way to South Wing and the Sharpham Trust office.

Please note and observe the 20mph speed limit through Ashprington village and on the Estate.

Trains to Totnes are on the Exeter, Plymouth and Penzance lines. Totnes railway station is a 5-10 minute walk from the town.

There are taxis available outside the railway station and in Totnes on The Plains. The journey to Sharpham House takes between 10 -15 minutes depending on traffic.

On foot or cycle from Totnes

From Totnes railway station, walking takes 45-60 minutes and cycling takes about 25 minutes.

Out of Station Drive, turn left at the main road, crossing over at the pedestrian lights. At Morrisons petrol station take the road straight on-ish into town (you'll soon walk past Morrisons supermarket on left). Keep going straight on over the mini-roundabout. At Jobcentre Plus the road swings right. You go straight on, passing the Jobcentre to your right.

When the road bears left around the back of the Steam Packet Inn on your left, you turn right (signposted National Cycle Network 28), up the hill for 30 metres to a sign for footpath/cycle route to Ashprington. Follow this up a long hill, and through woodland.

Go through a gate at the top, then continue downhill along this path. You will reach another gate with the Sharpham compass logo on its post, and go through that gate. Continue on about 200 metres through a third gate and soon after you’ll pass a striking bench on your left commissioned by the Sharpham Trust as a wonderful sit-spot facing down the River Dart Valley towards Sharpham House. Follow the path down and through a fourth gate. Continue down and round and you’ll go through another gate.

Straight after that gate, you’ll reach a split in the path with a sign pointing toward Ashprington. Choose the left to take a more level route to Sharpham House. Take the right to climb (sometimes steeply), eventually reaching the pillars at the entrance to Sharpham Estate.

If you’re going to the Woodland Retreat parking and luggage drop-off, look out for signs directing you there. If you’re continuing to Sharpham House, walk or ride down the road or footpath beside until you reach the 3-way junction, where you’ll see signs to Sharpham House.
