We sincerely apologise, but there is no car parking on site!

The farm is an easy, short walk from the nearest car parking in Totnes and easily wheelchair accessible. Just follow the signs for Totnes Rare Breeds Farm or for the South Devon Railway, which is next to the farm.

By road: 

We advise parking at the Pavilion Leisure Centre (TQ9 5XW) where you only pay for as long as you need. Follow the footpath that runs alongside the playing fields down to the bottom of the mainline train station. There the footpath turns right down to the river where you turn left and head over the bridge to the South Devon Railway and we're on the other side of the's only a short walk (promise!) and a very pleasant one.

You can also park at the mainline train station (TQ9 5JR) but please be aware that you have to pay for an all day ticket.

please, please, PLEASE do not follow Google directions as these will leave you stranded in the middle of the countryside!

As of Monday 15th August, essential railway bridge repairs by Network Rail will mean that there will be a diversionary walking route between Totnes main line station and the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm . 

The diversionary route is about 900 metres long, about twice the length of the usual path, and takes about 20 minutes to walk. It is mainly flat and has step free access throughout. Please see the map below.

We do apologise for any inconvenience caused by these Network Rail repairs, which have closed the usual footpath.

Clear wayfinding signage will be displayed along the route while the diversion is in place to guide visitors between Totnes station and the farm.

The footpath is due to reopen on 1st September.

By train:

Trains stop at Totnes on many local and national routes. Follow signs from the station down to the river and across to the farm (see above)!

By steam train:

South Devon Railway runs trains from Buckfastleigh (where there is free parking) and Staverton. The farm is on the other side of the tracks at Totnes. Ask for joint tickets!!
