2 Barnsfield Lane occupies a very pleasant elevated position on the popular outskirts of Buckfastleigh in the beautiful Dartmoor National Park. This small town provides a good range of shops and other facilities, with secondary educational provision at nearby Ashburton and Ivybridge. Access to the A38 dual carriageway is less than 1.5 miles, giving fast road links to Plymouth and Exeter.
Take the Dartbridge exit off the A38 at Buckfastleigh and follow signs for Buckfast Abbey. After passing the entrance to the Abbey proceed up and over the hill and take a right into Church Street. Take the second right into Silver Street and Barnsfield Lane is the second left. Number 2 is located on the left.
