From Exeter proceed on the A377 through Crediton and on towards Copplestone. In the village turn right by the standing stone into Bewsley Hill and proceed to New Buildings. At the T-junction turn left in the direction of Morchard Bishop. Turn left at Gays Cross which is marked as a no through lane. Continue along this lane until it turns 90 degrees right passing Ash Bullayne Cottage on your left and as it bends left, go straight on right, up the track, crossing the cattle grid with this track leading down to Woodparks (one has to go further than the satnav says)
