Ashburton is a picturesque Georgian market town on the edge of Dartmoor, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Surrounded by rolling green hills, ancient hedgerows and trees, you will feel you are a million miles away from the stresses of everyday life.
The new Ashburton Cookery School is 500 yards from our accommodation and the Garden Kitchen at Ashburton Court. On a nice day you may choose to walk (10 mins) or alternatively you can take our dedicated, complimentary minibus that runs everyday between the sites at 9.10am and at the end of your cookery course.
What is surprising is just how quickly you can be here. Well serviced by trains, and the M5 motorway, our students come from all over the country, staying overnight, for a weekend or for a full week in our B&B accommodation. Find out more about our accommodation here.
Travelling from Exeter direction down the M5 continue as the road becomes the A38 and as the dual carriageway divides, take the Plymouth road.
Continue past Newton Abbot until you see the sign for Ashburton (Linhay turn off). Take this exit.
If you are coming directly to the new Cookery School, take the next right and follow the signs to Newton Abbot/A38. You will see the cookery school building on your right.
If you are checking in to your room at Ashburton Court, you should turn left from the A38 exit, down East Street, past the Catholic Church on the left and war memorial - No. 76 East Street.
From Plymouth direction travelling on the A38 take the second signposted turning to Ashburton after Buckfastleigh and follow the instructions above.
The nearest station is Newton Abbot; services stop there from London Paddington, Penzance, and stations such as Carlisle, Birmingham New Street etc. From London Paddington you can be at our doorstep in under 3 hours, with a train from Paddington at 6pm arriving in Newton Abbott at 8.30pm. Taxis are available outside the train station and it is a 15 minute taxi ride to our front door around £15.
If you are arriving the night before for a course the following day, ask your taxi driver to take you 76 East Street, where you will be met by one of our team and shown to your room.
There are some great deals available on train fares which can be found here:
