From Fowlers drive down out of Chagford past the primary school and down to the A382 at Easton Cross. Turn left and drive past the Mill End Hotel along the A382 until about 3 miles later you come to the mini roundabout at Whiddon Down. Turn left onto the old A30 and continue for about 21/2 miles until, having descended along an S-shaped hill you see a road on the left just before going over the granite bridge at Owlsfoot. Take this left before the bridge and then immediately turn right and drive beneath the granite bridge. This is Ramsley Lane and Ramsley Cottage will be on the left after about 150 metres. It has a broad opening to the yard and you may park in there.
