        Local Directions to Myrtleberry at postcode: EX35 6NT

Note: It is easiest to get into Myrtleberry's drive coming up from Lynmouth.

From the M5 come off at J23 and follow the scenic A39 coastal route to Lynmouth through Bridgwater, Minehead and Porlock.

Alternatively leave the M5 via J27 at Tiverton and follow the A361 North Devon Link Road to the junction with the A399 at South Molton. Take the A399 to Blackmoor Gate where you turn right onto the A39. Continue past Paracombe on to Barbrook and take the left hand turn opposite the petrol station to Lynmouth.

In Lynmouth, turn left if coming along the coast - or right if coming from Barbrook - into Watersmeet Road (beside Shelley's Hotel signposted A39 to Simonsbath). Continue for 1.4 miles until you see the white signpost on the left marked Myrtleberry. If you reach the carpark fro Watersmeet National Trust teamroom you have gone too far.

Follow the steep drive down to the left through two hairpin bends. Come through the wooden gates and the Lodge is on the left behind the greenhouse. The entrance is through the porch beside the greenhouse and if you arrive in the dark security lights will come on. There is also an external light switch on the corner of the Lodge building.

The drive is rather steep and has two tight bends - take them wide and reverse if you have to!

Please don't attempt the drive with a trailer or a campervan.

        Access and Key Instructions

Access to the Lodge is from 3pm to give us time to get it ready for you. The key will often be left in the door but if it is locked then there is a key safe just inside the porch door. They key code is 8002.

        Eating Out and Supplies for your stay

We would like to encourage you to use local businesses for your supplies wherever possible - without the trade from visitors many would struggle to survive, thus limiting options for local people too. See our area's website for ideas of what to do and where to eat:

Especially during the holiday seasons it is advisable to make advance reservations - sometimes more than a week in advance! Please also cancel those reservations if you are not able to take them up though!

Lynton has The Moorland Pantry for local and organic produce and speciality items. During the growing season they will even deliver a veg box to the Lodge on Fridays - all grown on Exmoor - just get in touch by the previous Wednesday latest! There are also two general grocery stores in Lynton - Londis and Costcutters - which stay open fairly late. The petrol station at Barbrook also carries a good selection of items in their shop. Fresh fish is sold every Tuesday morning outside Lynton Town Hall. And here at Myrtleberry, we can usually sell you our fresh eggs direct. Abit further afield Porlock has a butcher and a specialist cheese shop amongst others.

If you do want to do a supermarket shop, then the closest are in Barnstaple, Ilfracombe, Minehead or South Molton (all equidistant from Myrtleberry). If you arrange a delivery from a supermarket, please alert them to the steep access drive and lack of mobile coverage. You can use our landline - 01598 752219 - as well as your mobile for the contact number, although of course we may not be in to take a call! Most delivery drivers need you to meet them at the top of the drive.

           We are trying to do our bit to reduce waste and unnecessary plastics and you will see our efforts when             you arrive. We provide cleaning items, hand soaps, 4 toilet rolls, kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets, etc.                 Your welcome gift includes milk, cake, prosecco, eggs (when available) and tea, coffee and sugar.                     There are also a range of cooking items such as oil, condiments and sauces.

A recent addition has also been an 'honesty shop' for certain essentials or treats that you might want to buy - it includes frozen pasties from the Tuck Box in Lynmouth. See the cupboard in the porch.

        Information for Dog Owners

Most places on Exmoor are very dog friendly! A few points to note though: we recommend that your dogs are treated against ticks at least a week before your arrival, and Exmoor farmers ask that dogs are wormed to protect their livestock. 

Our dogs here at Myrtleberry will bark on your arrival, come and say hello, but don't generally jump up! We also have chickens, although they are now safely behind an electric fence because of Mr/s Fox ...
