From The Plains proceed along Coronation Road and at the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto Station Road. Continue along the road, over the railway bridge and take the left hand lane signposted Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, the A381. Continue up the Western Bypass for approximately 1 mile and take left for Ashprington. Continue along this road and after approximately 1.5 miles you will arrive in the village. Continue to the centre of the village, take right at the war memorial. Continue down the hill and Brooking Cottage will be found on your left hand side just after the village hall.
Brooking Cottage is situated within the 'picture postcard' village of Ashprington which is just over two miles from Totnes. Just beyond Ashprington in the direction of Dittisham is Bow Creek at Tuckenhay, with popular moorings at Dittisham and Dartmouth. Within Ashprington there is a lovely village pub with eatery and a local primary school at the nearby village of Harbertonford. From the village there is easy access to the South Hams coastline and Dartmoor National Park. There is also a well-established comprehensive school in Totnes. Totnes itself has many amenities including supermarkets, independent shops and restaurants and a mainline railway station providing a direct service to London Paddington.
