From Junction 27 on the M5 take the A361 towards Barnstaple. Follow the road for 30 miles. After passing the roundabouts for Tiverton and South Molton, at the ‘Navigation Inn’ roundabout’ turn right onto the A399, signposted Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, Lynton and Lynmouth. Follow the road for 15 miles. Continue through the village, past the Pack o’Cards on the left hand side. As you approach the harbour look for Sues General Store at the junction with Cross Street, turn right into Hangman Path, beside the store. Follow the path up and around to the left, Primrose Brae will be found on the right hand side.

Traveling Advice :

Anyone traveling to Combe Martin for a holiday is probably travelling from some distance. In which case you will probably approach the area via the M5. And if you are staying at Primrose Brae or any of the other excellent self catering establishments in the area, then you will almost exclusively be travelling on a Saturday. This means you will probably encounter heavy traffic on the M5, especially if approach via Bristol. Peak time for change guest “Change Over” is late afternoon, which means very heavy congestion through Bristol at midday.

My Advice to anybody travelling to the area is get up and set off early. Have everything packed on Friday night and set your alarm clock for 3am. If you are travelling from Manchester for example, leave by 4am, aim to be through Birmingham before 6am and through Bristol before 7am. Then enjoy a relaxing breakfast at Taunton Deane motorway service station. Aim to arrive at the service station about 8am, it will already be busy, but queues at Costa Coffee will still be quite short. Once you’ve arrived at Tauton Deane you are officially on Holiday. Spend a day enjoying one of the local attractions, before arriving at your accommodation after 4pm. Once you’ve emptied the car, you should still have plenty of time to stock up on any groceries you need for the week.
