Directions & Map

Follow the A358 road to Minehead from Taunton and after Bishops Lydeard turn left onto the B3224. Keep following this road straight on until you go through Ralegh's Cross and soon after take a right fork to Wheddon Cross which is still the B3224. Follow this road through Wheddon Cross (nasty small junction), Exford where the road becomes the B3223 and then to Simonsbath. As you go through Simonsbath you will see two roads on the left, the second and slightly up the hill is the one to take to Challacombe, B 3358. As you come down into Challacombe take either road on the left as they both go to the same lane. The first takes you over a ford and the second is a sharp left hand turn. Follow this lane along and over two small bridges. Immediately after the second bridge turn left and go up the track forking right half way up where you see the Shoulsbarrow Farmhouse sign.
