Heading to Toby Buckland’s Garden Festival at Powderham Castle?
It’s easy to get there by train:

Pocket timetables

Starcross is the nearest station to the Festival, and you can get their direct from Exeter, Dawlish, Paignton or Torquay. Here are some handy pocket timetables specifically for the Festival weekend:

Or create your own timetable from wherever else you’re starting your journey.

Then take the 3-minute bus ride

From Starcross station, cross the road to the bus stop just to your left. Take a Stagecoach bus 2 or B, which leave at 03, 18, 23, 43 and 48 minutes past the hour, and get off at Powderham Castle.

Alternatively, it is a 30 minute walk to the Castle, turning right out of the railway station (keeping the river on your right) and staying on this road (the A379).
